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.

Couldn't have said it better myself. The sense of entitlement amongst hermit-like bedroom hackers never fails to astound me.

Just get one when there's more available and stop sulking like two-year olds that have been told that it's bedtime. It's embarassing at best.

You shouldn't confuse enthusiasm and frustration for a sense of entitlement.
