Hardware, Embedded Systems This morning, I experienced the nerd equivalent of a Black Friday $50 iPad sale. At 07:00 CET, the first batch of the much-anticipated Raspberry Pi went on sale, and while Raspberry Pi itself was very properly prepared, the two large international retailers actually selling the device weren't - despite warnings from Raspberry Pi about the enormous amount of traffic that would come their way, the two sites crumbled to dust within seconds. There's good news too - the cheaper model A has seen its RAM doubled at no additional cost.

Appearently, both Farnell* and RS Components only deliver to companies in the Netherlands. Since I do not own a company, it seems I am required to ask someone who owns a company in order to order a Raspberry Pi.

* Farnell does have an exception, but it required an order of at least 50 euros. (http://nl.farnell.com/images/nl_NL/pdf/Particulier_voorwaarden.doc) And since the rule was one Pi per address...
