Email Us.. Category 5 TV.. Posted on.. January 3, 2012.. by.. Michael Hall.. We ve been told that.. , an online technology show, will be featuring Qimo on tonight s episode.. Tune in at 7pm Eastern to watch it live, or any time after on their website.. (.. Update:.. The recording of the live shows is available for viewing here:.. http://www.. category5.. tv/episodes/224.. php.. ).. Posted in.. Press.. |.. Comments Off.. ZaReason Invenire 1220 Reviewed.. October 24, 2011.. A couple of weeks ago,.. ZaReason.. sent us a shiny new.. Invenire 1220.. running Qimo 2.. 0 for a review.. This is the first time I ve ever seen Qimo running on a machine I hadn t put it on, and the fact that it was like that out of the box was one of the coolest experiences I ve had.. Having Qimo available as a pre-install option is not only a great opportunity for Qimo, but an easy way for parents to get a working computer that s safe and inviting for their kids.. And even if that weren t enough reason to recommend ZaReason, this Invenire itself is a great machine.. It may not look like it was designed for kids, but trust me on this one, it will get their attention.. and.. their interest.. The transparent, illuminated window invites questions about what the different pieces are and how they work, sparking a desire to learn and explore that is so very fitting for a Qimo desktop.. Enough talk, let s see some pictures!.. Continue reading.. In Use.. ,.. Thanks.. | Tagged.. oem.. zareason.. Qimo on ZaReason PCs.. October 1, 2011.. We were very excited to hear this week that.. has a new.. PC model geared towards children.. and young adults, and that you can get it running Qimo 2.. 0! Not only that, but Qimo is the default and recommended operating system for this model.. And at $299, it s perfectly priced for children who are old enough to use an actual computer, but not yet needing (or wanting) a workhorse.. Not that the Invenire 1220 is a lightweight when it comes to hardware, it sports a 1.. 8 GHz processor, a full gigabyte of memory, and a whopping 500GB hard drive.. It ll take an awful lot of.. TuxPaint.. drawing to fill that much space.. For inventors, explorers and all those who love to discover, we built a desktop that gives you a glimpse into the beautiful guts of your machine.. Peek through the clear plastic side to see what makes this computer run.. Designed for students of all ages, this desktop is packed with features specific to learning.. While many distros run on this machine, if it is being purchased for a younger student we highly recommend that you select Qimo.. It features large icons and easy-to-use menus so children can easily learn to navigate on their own.. Qimo is useable by children as young as three years, but it remains engaging and versatile for older children as well.. If purchasing for an older student or teen, feel free to select Ubuntu or another sophisticated distro.. We re doubly excited because ZaReason is loaning us one to evaluate ourselves! Expect a thorough write-up with plenty of pictures once it gets here.. Moving to WordPress.. July 23, 2011.. We are in the process of moving the website to WordPress.. This move has been a long time in coming, but the truth is we never really had problems with our previous setup.. We appreciate the donated hosting given to us by TM+R, is has been a terrific resource for us over the past couple of years.. But the time has come to move onto our own servers (or more precisely, instances on Amazon s EC2 cloud service), and with that we are moving from a Windows web server running Dot Net Nuke to an Ubuntu 10.. 10 Server running WordPress.. We appreciate your patience with any difficulties that  ...   so keep an eye out for updates.. If you are are a vendor and are interested in offering Qimo on your own line of PCs, send us an email at.. info@qimo4kids.. You can find links to these PC vendors, as well as links to purchase printed Qimo CDs and apparel at our.. 1 Comment.. Qimo 2.. 0 is now available!.. May 26, 2010.. After much hard work, and some delay, we are pleased to bring your the second version of our popular Linux Desktop for Kids!.. Special Thanks.. First off, I d like to thank.. Brian Hall.. for once again providing the amazing artwork that makes Qimo so special and appealing to children of all ages.. I would also like to thank.. Jonathan Carter.. for patiently helping me learn how to create Ubuntu packages and get them uploaded into the official repositories (more on that below).. What s New.. We have introduced a new character to Qimo, her name is Illa, a cute and cuddly little polar bear.. Illa (pronounced ee-la ) is an Inuit word that means friend , and we know she ll find her way into the hearts of your kids.. She also has her own wallpaper featuring the artic landscape at dusk, filled with hues of pink and purple with the Auroa Borealis shining in the sky.. Choose from a variety of Qimo and Illa wallpapers to find the one that is just right for your child.. Have more than one child? With Qimo 2, they can each have their own user account! The Xubuntu session is still there too, so you can create an account for yourself as well.. If you are already running Ubuntu 10.. 04, there s no need do a fresh install to get Qimo.. Now you can add the.. qimo-session.. package from the Universe repository using Apt-get or Synaptic and you ll get all of the games, artwork, and desktop session installed.. We have had one game change in version 2.. Replacing eToys on the launcher is Laby, a very simple and easy game that will teach even the youngest aspiring programmer all the basics.. Tested on an actual 5 year old, Laby has proven to be a very approachable and effective teaching tool that we hope will inspire a new generation of software developers.. Our direct download mirrors are busy updating to the new release.. If you can t get through to one of them, you can download it via Bittorrent.. Our Download and Shop pages will be updated as we hear from our partners.. Download Torrent.. MD5.. : fcc629f107e8ca8766b15bc6e5c32e5c.. SHA1.. : 3e328b74b2eb9fcc179b2fa93afeccea55b59ca6..

  • Title: ZaReason Invenire 1220 Reviewed | Qimo 4 Kids
    Descriptive info: Enough talk, let s see some pictures!.. It arrives!.. I m glad that the box was marked Fragile in multiple places, our UPS delivery guy has a tendency to launch packages from halfway down the driveway to our doorstep.. Securely packaged inside the outer box appears to be the original case manufacturer s box.. Given how widely known and talked about ZaReason is, it s sometimes easy to forget that they re a small business who painstakingly assemble these machines by hand here in the USA.. ZaReason sent instructions as well as the initial username and password for signing in to Qimo.. I particularly liked the first trouble-shooting step: Try to figure it out.. The more you play with your system, the more you know about it.. That pretty much sums up how we want kids to approach Qimo too.. This was my first wow moment.. I somehow forgot that the Invenire 1220 has a transparent window on the side.. And not a little one either.. Did I mention it has a big transparent window? I think I did, but I just can t stop looking at it.. The irregular shape seems to add to it s intrigue.. Oh,  ...   started asking me what all the components were.. I spent about 10 minutes explaining what everything did and how they worked together, before we even got around to playing with Qimo.. Ready Set Go!.. This machine has more than just good looks, it s blazing fast too.. Qimo booted up to the login screen in 20 seconds flat.. And that s good, because if there s one thing kids aren t, it s patient.. All of the games started fast, ran flawlessly and sounded great.. Everything just worked, out of the box, the way it should be.. I won t go into all of Qimo s games or post a bunch of screenshots, because this review is about the machine itself.. Suffice it to say, though, that this is pretty much the Qimo experience I want other people to have.. There isn t much more to say, except: Thanks ZaReason! Thanks not only for lending us this terrific machine to play with for a few days, but thanks also for taking the time to evaluate Qimo, for making sure that it runs perfectly on this hardware, for building a quality, affordable machine, and for just being an awesome company..
