Raspberry Pi mentioned by Eric Schmidt in today's Guardian Observer

http://www.guardian.co.uk/comm.....NTCMP=SRCH

"The timely arrival of the cheap, accessible Raspberry Pi computer holds the promise of a new generation of youngsters learning to write code not seen since the days of the great BBC Micro, which helped launch the careers of so many of Google's British software engineers. It's worth noting that only 2% of Google's software engineers tell us they weren't exposed to coding at secondary school."

...

"Indeed, we would go even further and say: let's get the whole world coding"

Raspberry Pi sails through CE tests, ready for sale

.


The Raspberry Pi is back on track to start shipping, after the £22 ARM-based Linux computer completed all its certification tests.

"Good news! We just received confirmation that the Raspberry Pi has passed EMC [electromagnetic certification] testing without requiring any hardware modifications," the Raspberry Pi Foundation's spokeswoman Liz Upton wrote in a blog post on Friday.

ITN TV Coverage link from the home page.

This had me confused for a bit as you can`t play the video on its on its own.

You have to play the video from their page as they have it made it a private video.

The Video Download Helper plugin for Firefox is a very handy tool to have. ;)

<sigh>

A real shame that they insist on quoting the ex-VAT Model A price.

Any conversation about a sufficiently complex subject is indistinguishable from babble.

Bit-tech tried it, also with overclocking:

http://www.bit-tech.net/hardwa.....i-review/1

I liked the "general useable" conclusion:

"In short: it's perfectly possible to use the Raspberry Pi as a day-to-day machine, so long as you're fairly patient."

Seems many people still do not get that any old monitor with a DVI (DVI-D or DVI-I) connector can be used with a cheap cable, you can probably get one for almost free.

I didn't like the "most problem ridden launch" comment, that only seems to be, because of the extreme openness of the process, and the extreme level of demand for the device in question. Many first production batches have small problems, such as having a wrong component placed, especially when made without the possibility of direct supervision. And the EMC problems were caused because of the extreme interest, forcing the decision to test even the first batch.

If the RPF simply hadn't announced anything and made a 1K batch as first imagined, then only sold them to real developers nobody would have said it was a "problematic launch", but then there wouldn't be the levels of interest we see today.

From a marketing and PR magazine in Australia: I am VERY PROUD of the marketing and PR work I've done on Raspi, and this article made me swell up with pride like one of those self-inflating frogs.

Linus Torvalds namedropping Raspberry Pi in a TechCrunch interview:

http://techcrunch.com/2012/04/.....-torvalds/


What I in many ways think is more interesting are people who do new things. I love the whole Raspberry PI concept, for example. That’s revolutionary in a whole different direction – maybe not the prettiest form-factor, but taking advantage of how technology gets cheaper to really push the price down to the point where it’s really cheap. Sure, it’s a bit limited, but it’s pretty incredible what you can do for $35. Think about that with a few more years under its belt.

The reason I think that is interesting is because I think we’re getting to the point where it is *so* cheap to put a traditional computer together, that you can really start using that as a platform for doing whole new things. Sure, it’s good for teaching people, but the *real* magic is if one of those people who get one of those things comes up with something really new and fun to do with it.
