Few Hardware Questions
#1
So with my notice of my extra charge going through, I'm hoping i'll be looking at this shipping to me soon, but I had a couple questions regarding the hardware and some functionality. 

1) What type of touchscreen is the one that is being advertised?  Is it a capacitive touchscreen?  If not, are there plans on possibly offering one in the future? 

2) I assume the touchscreen will connect though the headers on the board itself, and not require the HDMI port.  So will the HDMI port will output at the same resolution as the touchscreen if/when it's plugged up?  My current plans are to build a set-top android box, and i'd like to have the HDMI out as an option to hook it up to a larger external display. 

3) I saw where someone ran some benchmarks on the Pine, and in some heavy testing, experienced some thermal throttling.  Are there any current heat sinks that work well with the pine?  Or are there any plans to have some made/sold through the pine shop when it opens? 

Thanks to anyone who can provide answers or information.

Thanks!  Finally dug through the benchmark thread and found the heatsink info.  

Speaking of the screen, any ETA on the pine shop (i'm assuming it'll be sometime after most, if not all, the kickstarter orders are filled), so I can know when to expect picking up a screen?

Around late April/ early May, once we clear up KS dispatch.
