Re: "back-lit color e-paper"?
E-paper, not e-Ink.
The screen on the Pebble is just an LCD which works best when backlit as the white pixels are completely transparent unlike eInk which are an opaque white hence requiring front lighting.

Mozilla attempted something similar with Junior for iPad. This is just a concept UI for iPad, which doesn't allow Opera's own Presto to run.
I still have to see any official verification of this being an actual move by Opera. Some articles even incorrectly claimed the gentleman in the video is the CEO, which he is not.
Last time I went through the shopping cart flow to buy an Ubuntu machine off Dell, they suggested I used Internet Explorer 7
The last decent Ubuntu based machine Dell stocked was the Mini 10, however Dell got seriously burned by punters buying the cheapest one they saw and then complaining when it "didn't have Windows". Picked up a couple at the Dell Outlet for €199.
For a company who's majority of consumer products are built on the Linux kernel, its the least they could do.
Based on their 2011 phone sales alone, that works out at $0.0016 per device. Add to that TV and DVD/BluRay sales and that contribution per device drops even more.
There are much better apps out there for photo manipulation, e.g. Magic Hour, Pixlr-o-matic and Retro Camera, but for a pure hipster photo community it's hard to beat Instagram.
Personally I do most of the photo warping in other apps and just use Instagram as a place to put photos without fotospamming off my friends on Twitter or Facebook.
I see in keeping with the Nordic traditions, Opera is the browser of choice for HbbTV.
As an Irish citizen, I wonder what it means for Irish consumers as most of our electronic devices are sold by UK retailers (the local Sony Center's only closed last week after Dixons Retail drove them into the ground). The Irish Digital TV service only started last year, SaorView, and is only compatable with Freeview HD devices (i.e. we only broadcast MP4 not MPEG2)
If they're not using that code, then they don't need that permission and it should be removed.
If they do introduce a new feature that uses, then change the app permissions so the user is prompted to accept the app permissions again with the text message access hightlighted as new.
Youtube accessing the camera isn't an issue at all, the Youtube can invoke the camera so that you can take videos to post to Youtube.
The 3 strikes rule might be dead, but the record industry have sunk their claws into government and the Irish government is to legislate in the new year against downloaders.
