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.

That's because there's a huge market out there for what the hardware manufacturers *dont want* .... commodity disposable computers. And a pair of extremely profitable technology companies don't want this market to expand either. It's time to start developing this new market to break up and replace that old tired one.
