DomTom, this was discussed on the other thread. The ability to rip was doubtless discussed and considered near the unveiling of the new Atom (I'm told that the platform has the capability and that's confirmed by engineer Steve Sells) and appears that it was also even included as a 'feature' on an early PR. However the decision was quickly made not to include this feature (although I believe it could possibly be added in future should it be deemed desirable and the firmware etc.. modified to suit). Any manufacturer reserves the right to change a specification or features prior to units reaching production readiness and this feature, while a possibility, was not included quite early on, for whatever reason. This was many months before units eventually went into production and indeed it is also confirmed as such by Phil when asked about this in this very thread back in June (see above).
No hoax here.
Hi Richard, it was the wrong use of the word. I've deleted my post as it's not exactly what I meant.
