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.

Giving up on it -- but I think my reaction is ENTIRELY based on their lack of a North America presence, and that their sites are being actively blocked here -- or it's being rejected on their side.


Dude, seriously? I'm in the U.S., and I got an email saying my Pi will be here at the end of April. My only issue with ordering was the server was so understandably slow. An untrained monkey could have navigated that site, it's a bog-standard shopping cart.

You know, there's being ignorant and uninformed, and then there's spouting utter bullshit to make a nonexistent point. Guess which one you seem to be doing?
