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.

Techies, more likely to get such thing, are probably a bit more familiarised with the general history of computing industry or, specifically, what consequences an unsupported & static binary blob might bring few years down the line (and what is the value of open drivers)

Overall, MS was once small and harmless, too. Once, ~"there simply wasn't a single shred of evidence, proof, comment, remark, or anything else that showed any sign there's reason to worry about their product, its manufacturer, or their intent"
