Hardware, Embedded Systems It took the world a good while, but today, my Raspberry Pi finally landed on my doormat. Since it only arrived today, I haven't had the time to put it through its paces, but I do have a few first impressions to share with you all, while I also want to explain how the Pi will allow me to complete my already seven year long quest for The Elusive Three.

I can't decide and the fact that after I ordered I was given three weeks wait time hasn't really helped my dreams.

... only two more weeks to go.

I think you should make it a robot, so it can follow you around and do all of these tasks. Though if you can make a robot that can connect itself to the tv alone that is already fairly impressive, especially considering how finicky my PS3's HDMI connection seems to be.

Not for long, I guess, with wireless video home interlinks supposedly around the corner ;p

(generally, reminds me about http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Microcomputer_revolution#The_Home_Comp... ...while, in reality, it turned out that the computer itself is the easy & cheap part, so we just put them everywhere now, embedded, one per object & task)
