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.

Anyone bitching about not being able to get a Raspberry Pi should consider that they are arguing about an education device built by a small charitable organisation for the purpose of teaching British school children to write computer programs ;)

It's actually funny, I can't wait to get one though ;)
