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.

Being a charity they wanted to run on principles. They promised a cheap board, that's what they delivered (or are trying to deliver). This is just a hiccup we're seeing.

Yeah, that's sort of the conclusion I came to at the end. But I thought the rest of it was interesting enough to consider if they were not set on the price.
