Re: The Pi's Chinese rival has arrived

I don't see how this compares, I imagine Android is not all that good when you have to use a keyboard and mouse. I do believe we are seeing the beginning of the future where everyone carries their own computer on a key chain wherever they go. Just plug in to a dock anywhere and have access to all yo...

Re: Email from Farnell

I posted that I have not received a confirmation in another post, and they deleted my post and another persons, then locked the thread. Pretty rude.

I ordered on 3/3/12, but have not received an email yet. Hopefully in the next couple of days.

Re: ModMyPi Raspberry Pi Cases

I was wondering the same thing, I would like to produce my own case, and the dimensions would be very handy.

Re: No confirmation email from RS

I received my confirmation on March 2. I was able to place an order at that time. It looks like the order I placed will not  be shipped out till May. I am a little disappointed by the long delay, but at lease I know is coming eventually.

Re: Touch Screen LCD

<r>I too am looking for a touch screen for a project, although my size requirements aren't as small as yours. I found this one which may be interesting to use, it uses USB only, so you will have to write a driver for it, but it is powered by USB as well. A powered hub might do the trick.<br/> <br/> ...
