    yup, happens a lot on more popular projects.

    heres elite: dangerous for example

    kickstarter required fund: £1.2m
    actual raised on kickstarter: £1.4m
    total funds raised via paypal/etc after kickstarter: £1.7m

    all extras go into speeding along the process or giving the project instigators more incentive to do more.

    If PIC get over their $35,000 then hopefully they will introduce stretch goals like Jellybean for ACL and or ACL on other WebOS devices (Pre3 would be nice).

    Congrats on making goal!! If there is anyone still on the fence about donating... please donate...it will save a puppy from crying!!

    If ACL fails, webOS will probably never see new hardware.
    If webOS never sees new hardware, you will eventually have to switch to an inferior OS.
    If you switch to an inferior OS you will get angry and frustrated.
    If you get angry and frustrated you will throw your new phone/tablet.
    If you throw your new phone/tablet you will hit your puppy.
    If you hit your puppy, it will cry.

    Don't make your puppy cry.

    Support ACL!

    Someone posted this on another thread:

    U.S. judge orders Hewlett-Packard to face shareholder lawsuit

    It's good news to see the target met. Already I see people commenting about 'stretch' goals:
    Run Android Apps in webOS on the HP Touchpad by Phoenix International Communications » Comments &mdash; Kickstarter

    HP over promised and under delivered. Most of the negative comments on this thread have focused on OM's failure to deliver on it's apparent promises (though no one was able to buy a product anyway). Where is OM's statement?

    Those who get more good stuff than they were expecting are happy people. They will donate again and buy your next product.

    Those who promise the moon and deliver little or nothing... well, I don't need to spell it out.

    My suggestion to PIC is: Don't be tempted to promise more than you already have and ensure you deliver. If you manage to over-deliver, then so much the better for you.

    Good luck!

    Project Update #5: Reaching the Stars Together
    Posted by Phoenix International Communications
    Thank You to everyone that helped push us over the 35,000 mark. Soon you will all be running the long overdue ACL Software right on your own Touchpad!*

    Many of you have contacted us and asked us to please add Stretch Goals to our list so you can find other ways to contribute. We have many other plans in our future, including updating the ACL software to Android 4.x and having it released for the HP Pre3. A more substantial goal that we have been continuously working on for about a year is to produce an Open webOS Phone of Our Own within a reasonable time frame. As you continue to donate, all funding will go towards those three projects in our future.*

    We’d also like to announce the availability of 2 new rewards especially for those who want to buy more than one copy of ACL:*

    *$55 – 2 licenses of the ACL software*

    $75 – 3 licenses of the ACL software*

    Lastly, we’ve been getting requests to add a PayPal option from a number of people who are unable to use Kickstarter’s payment system. Please use the following link to visit our PayPal donation page: http://www.phxdevices.com/support*

    Once again, thanks so much everyone! We really appreciate all the support you’re giving us, and are looking forward to getting ACL finished for you!

    And irrespective of the success of ACL, it proves that webOS still has a strong and supportive community behind it. Who knows what would be possible without the reservations held by some about OM.

    Hi,

    Please allow me to introduce myself as the Director of Product Management and Content Platforms at OpenMobile World Wide. I have been with the company for just under a year now as both an employee and as an angel investor. As most of you already know, OpenMobile is the creator of the Application Compatibility Layer (ACL) software, which enables any supported non-Android platform to seamlessly run Android Apps.

    First and foremost, I want to make sure that everyone understands how much we as a company love webOS and the loyal community (that’s you) which surrounds it. A startup - and more specifically a product manager like myself - couldn't ask for more to help ensure success and product-market fit.

    At the same time, please understand that as a for-profit company OpenMobile must answer to our shareholders and investors. A number of commercial stops and starts with potential business partners forced us to adjust our strategy for ACL for webOS several times in 2012, ultimately resulting in us shelving the project. While we are prohibited by non-disclosure agreements from discussing details publicly, we acknowledge and realize that our communication to the community via our website and otherwise grew inexcusably stale during this time period, resulting in mis-set and unmet expectations. As a company we take full responsibility for this and are in the process of updating our site to better reflect the actuality of the situation, and are joining this forum to initiate more open and direct communication.

    Secondly, questions have been raised about Gingerbread vs. Android 4.x support. We understand how critical it is to include Android 4.x in ACL for webOS; the development work to integrate 4.x is a major item on our own ACL product roadmap. However, we will not have this work completed in time for the release we’ve defined with the PIC team. Commercial details need to be finalized, but it is our goal to introduce Android 4.x support post-release and offered to existing ACL for webOS users as an upgrade.

    Finally, we are very happy to be working with Phoenix to bring this project to fruition. Our engineering team has spent countless hours porting ACL to webOS for the Touchpad and testing apps on the platform. We as a company believe in both the platform and in all of you - the loyal users - and we feel quite fortunate to have the project come alive again due to the efforts of the Phoenix International Communications team.

    I am personally looking forward to hearing the feedback from this forum once we release ACL for webOS - and yes, I mean both any praise as well as any constructive criticism.

    Thank you for your time and understanding,

    Howie Hecht
    Director of Product Management and Content Platforms
    OpenMobile World Wide, Inc.

    "...it is our goal to introduce Android 4.x support post-release and offered to existing ACL for webOS users as an upgrade..."

    Umm, Howie,. should this ever actually come to pass.. would it also be your 'goal' for that to be a free 'upgrade' to 'existing users', do you imagine?

    (This bearing in mind that at present, it only takes about 75 seconds to re-boot to 'Android' 4.1.2 anyway, on an existing dual-boot Touchpad)?

    Thanks!

    Thanks Howie for stepping in.
    Let me express to you my true hope that OM will be faster to deliver our community paid ACL version (Android 2.x, webOS 3.0.5), then updating your website to the true product release status.
