http://www.zdnet.co.uk/blogs/from-both- ... -10026180/ and http://www.ibtimes.co.uk/articles/34126 ... dows-7.htm <- "Why post about thin clients, Liz? We all know about them and we all hate Windows" was the message we got from the comments under the post I put up yesterday. This sort of press is why, you lovely, superior tech goblins, you.

http://www.smartoffice.com.au/Technolog ... e/M9G5U5C7 <- Eben is *a* Technical Director at Broadcom rather than *the* Technical Director, but I rather like the spin that puts on things...

http://www.pcauthority.com.au/News/3010 ... rives.aspx <- Lots of news from Australia today, where RS have been doing a big media push. These guys have a god-awful carpet.

http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2012- ... -spectrums <- Lovely look back at the Speccy 30th birthday event we took part in just over a week ago.

About to jump into a car for the airport (AGAIN), but before I go, here's a video review from Wired's Gadget Lab Show. We met Roberto on Friday; he's brilliant, and he has big plans for his Raspberry Pi (which he is going to be writing about, so watch this space).

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-18182280 <- fantastic news - Eric Schmidt is talking very enthusiastically about the Raspberry Pi in education, and Google is sponsoring Teach First, which will be using Raspis as part of a compsci-teacher training scheme.

Huffington Post Tech interviews Bee Takore at Farnell element14 in 3 minute video.
Any conversation about a sufficiently complex subject is indistinguishable from babble.

One about the first wave of competition from China for the Rpi (all be it running Android and more expensive):

Eric Schmidt from Google is funding 100 recent graduates through a six-week training course and giving them a Raspberry Pi - before sending them into schools to teach

They are Teach First graduates. They get a 6 week intensive training course into teaching after coming out of undergrad with a good degree. They then get sent into a school for a year to work and if they (a) survive and (b) still like it they get an accelerated career.

Good luck to them, I'd like to meet some of them.

Do these little gadgets have any practical value? My Magic 8 ball says "Reply hazy, try again".

Invasion of the Tiny, Linux-Powered PCs

"More people bought small, cheap computers running */Linux than that other OS, and the world saw that things were fine without Wintel," [blogger Robert Pogson] explained. "2012 will bring more of the same."

Mi Pi has finally arrived!

I have posted a first contact (in Spanish) in my blog:

http://nachocabanes.blogspot.com.es/201 ... -real.html

and I would like to follow up soon (in a couple of days, hopefully) with information for Spanish-speaking users (keyboard configuration and so on), focusing on users who are learning computer programming.

BTW, feel free to contact me in you need to translate anything to Spanish or to interpret any Spanish text.

How tinkering can bear fruit

The Raspberry Pi is perhaps best thought of as a pile of Lego bricks waiting to be turned into something amazing.
