Re: Authorized Seller???

MCM's parent company is Premier/Farnell who are one of the two main distributors.

Doesn't really matter though as any company or person that can get boards can resell them.

Re: Newark element 14 shipment tracking

When I received mine in Canada from Element14 it also said shipped via "Traffic" but it was actually shipped via UPS. I went to the UPS website put in the shipment tracking number that Element14 sent me and watched my Pi make its way to my door :)

The $25 tag line has bothered me for quite a while. I know the Model A will eventually be available at that price but it isn't now. Almost falls into the bait and switch category ;)
