Well, it's about the Foundation's main competitor - and the Pi does get a mention - so I couldn't resist ;P

Oh, the hubris.

Funny, really; I had a lot of complaints along the lines of "Why can't you run your launch like Apple run theirs?" I made the point that they have a market cap of $500bn, where we have my fridge magnet collection and what I've managed to rustle up from behind the sofa cushions.

And yet you guys still managed not to have the site completely crash during the peak period. Sure, you had to move to a static page for a couple of days, but it was available...

Hopefully the second batch will be around 300000 units, then, so all of us can actually get our hands on a Raspi sooner rather than later... hehehe

Cheers.

Not quite news or a blog, but probably the funniest bit of rpi press I've come across...

Scott Mills has a game he does on his show on Radio 1 in the evenings called innuendo bingo, the first clip they played this thurs was a Rpi related one, although unfortunately they didnt know enough about it to mention the project name...

about 28 mins into the podcast:

Originally posted something in off-topic, then realised this is probably the place for it.

Article in April copy of Linux Format

Seems only subscribers can see the article online (I bought a physical copy when I saw the picture of the Raspberry Pi on the front)

This isn't exactly a Vlog or news item, but does cover specifically the manufacturing delays as it's main topic....and I thought it was HILARIOUS! So check it out :



This isn't mine by the way...just sharing.

From Finland (in Swedish) "IT revolution for 26 euros", this was also in the printed newspaper:

Google Translate is what it is but you'll get the point.

element14, the first collaborative community and electronics store for design engineers and electronics enthusiasts, powered by Premier Farnell [LSE:PFL], has today announced the three winners of its global "Raspberry Road Test" challenge. Peter Fenech, Gizmo B73 and Jodi Curtis are the proud owners of the amazing credit card sized computer, the Raspberry Pi that launches today on Pi Day. The challenge, launched last week, invited Raspberry Pi fans around the world for a chance to win one of the mostly hotly desired gadgets of the year by submitting their answers to the question - "What innovation will you create using the amazing Raspberry Pi computer"?

A self-described "computer wizard with a strong sense of civil awareness," Kobeissi estimates he spends five times more time on his Cryptocat project than his political science and philosophy studies at Concordia University in Montreal.

In an era of Web-based political activism, Cryptocat is aimed at providing rock-solid messaging security as governments around the world ramp up their Internet monitoring to ferret out activists.
