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.

Funny since for decades I've been buying a lot of the stuff that allegedly these two companies deal in...both retail and wholesale... and NEVER heard of them.


You must get out more and spend less time in your isolation. I have been buying from these people both as professional and home user for over 40 years. That is more of an indictment of you than these two companies. Mind you the launch has been a complete cock up.

I just got a reply from my Farnell order at 15:04 saying the expected delevery date is 16/04/2012 (in the proper format with the day first)
