Hardware, Embedded Systems Remember the Raspberry Pi ARM board we talked about last week? Well, while running Quake III is all fine and dandy and illustrates the board is capable of something, it didn't really tell me anything since I'd guess few people are going to use such a board for gaming. So, I was pleasantly surprised to see that the Raspberry Pi team posted another demo today - running 1080p video for eight hours straight. The chip was still cool to the touch. And just to reiterate: $25.

I think many of us have DC-adapters lying around that would handle the job just fine. We have TV sets with HDMI, we have spare keyboards with USB and maybe a SD-card big enough to fit a OS. Many of us would have really fun with that board without spendning extra money.
