Re: Will we get USB 3.x and 1000M Ethernet in the next iteration?

Thanks, James! Yes, I bet any new(er) technology is certainly going to go through the price/performance/ceiling roundabout.

Will we get USB 3.x and 1000M Ethernet in the next iteration?

Re: Finaly got my Raspnerry-PI! not without problems though

Check your bank record. See if you have been actually charged for two instead of the amount "pending" to be withdrawn from your account. Right now until demand is met, both companies are only shipping one per customer. If you have been billed for two, call your bank to rescind payment and call RS to...

Now I read folks are seeing updates on their account pages from August XX to something else sooner. So I just checked mine. My update is "...
