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.

Have a look at the Cotton Candy. Same basic idea as the Raspberry Pi, but it's a dual-core Cortex-A9 CPU, Mali-400MP GPU, 1 GB of RAM, and microSD support up to 64 GB for storage. Onboard HDMI (full-size), USB (full-size), and micro-USB port. It's currently over $100, but give it a bit and the price should come down.
