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.

But it's strange you don't get guided to Farnells US arm, Newark .

Do you have a direct URL for that? I ended up viewing their main site via a proxy and saw nothing about them even serving anyplace but Europe/asia.

While again, here Opera's phishing/scam warning triggers, and Firefox says "blocked in your region". (as in plaintext, all that's being sent to me... well, view source shows it's in paragraph tags with no head/body/doctype/other markup.) Chrome sits there without ever finishing loading -- and I don't dare try IE with that much going wonky in the better browsers.
