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.

Being in the UK, I looked at the price and thought "wait £21.65 is not $25!!!"... then I took a pill and realised it was for the *Model B*!!! Ha! So happy not to have been caught by insane price hikes excused as "exchange rates".

I think I'll wait till the craziness subsides, but as I recently purchased a monitor with HDMI, this looks pretty cool to me.
