Hardware, Embedded Systems The BBC reviews the Raspberry Pi. "The device may inspire a new generation of computer programmers or it could leave children used to smartphones and tablet computers baffled and bewildered. A great experiment with the way we teach computing has begun and we can't be sure how it will end." Mine's coming the week of May 21.

What I am hoping for is that inexpensive alternatives to other computing components will follow suit. How about a touch enabled LCD screen for $50 (or less)? They have an Arduino-like device in the works for the Pi that should open up another whole world of expansive opportunities. Or a any number of other typically expensive add-ons that could all now find a new price point.

In my mind, it's a bit too early to choose a winner and stop the forward motion. Maybe next year we will have a dual-core Pi for $35, who knows? In my mind that won't be a bad thing.
