Will mention Adafruit is a well respected member of the Arduino community. Nice to see them looking at supporting the Pi.

That looks like a very nice prototyping kit. How long before we see a custom made breadboard that sits on the Pi in the same way? It's coming, I'll warrant.

"Pi Plate" - I love it!

I think the Pi Foundation should offer a free Pi or something for the most excruciating Pi pun.

Nice to see you on-board.

A fruit Pi will be quite a treat!

Just remember, the Pi Plate is currently Top Secret (or, as they say in the UK, Most Secret).  No price or availability has been announced yet, so, as they say, "It's not out yet, so don't ask".  Shhhhhh.  For Her Majesty's Eyes Only :D

Adafruit has the worst-kept secrets in the world - and thank goodness for that!
