The Panels of Eden

• Panels (also known as Leaves) are a feature of ADAM's Eden user interface, and provide a visual metaphor for multitasking. A Panel is a "placeholder" for a light-weight feature-limited version of the application, when actually the application is sleeping. ADAM’s display shows three adjacent panels at a time, a sub-set of all the currently open panels (see diagram, left – click to enlarge).

Pre-Order Outcasts or

Postponed Original Order or

Pissed Off Owners 

Pre-Order Outcasts are a group of customers who purchased the ADAM in December 2010 and are still waiting for them to ship.

The Postponed Original Order shipping dates were changed by Notion Ink numerous times for various reasons.

The changing shipping dates for the selected few who are POO while others are receiving the same models has resulted in Pissed Off Owners.

  The Order Of POO


Post Office Protocol

The Post Office Protocol is an application-layer Internet standard protocol used by email client apps to retrieve email from a remote server. POP and IMAP (Internet Message Access Protocol) are the two most prevalent Internet standard protocols for email retrieval. Virtually all modern email clients and servers support both. The POP protocol has been developed through several versions, with version 3 (POP3) being the current standard.

• ADAM’s email app Mail’d supports SMTP, POP, and IMAP.
