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.

OK, it wasn't totally perfect. But at least they don't suck, like all the idiots who stayed up all night or woke really early for a game that you were very likely to loose anyway. (Game being: Getting one from the first batch.)

Now you whine and throw a tantrum on the internet. Very mature. Just be happy they opted for the licensed route, because now you are way more likely to get one in a reasonable time frame (just look at OpenPandora to see how long you would wait otherwise)

So stop your bitching and be grateful that RPi exists and that they are even sold to social hermits like you.
