(S)he seems to be a couple of tinnies short of a case – perhaps thats why the reporting was so inept.
Edit: OMG – I didn"t see the by-line….
I did exactly the same thing this morning. I wonder if my comments will be published. If you"re going to write an article at least get the obvious facts right.
You had a snark at them too?
Perhaps they won't be publishing any comments for that one…….
Yep, I did.
I don't have a copy of the comments I made but it went something like this:
You've made a number of erroreneous statements in your news article, which I list as follows:
1. RPF is a UK based charity and nothing to do with the US.
2. Have you ever seen the inside of a computer before? They are not pretty. The R-Pi is sold without a case so what you are getting is a PCB with components soldered to it, not that dissimilar to this ***I then gave a link to a photo of a computer set up on a desk based on the EVGA Classified SR-2 motherboard. The photo showed about £1.5K at least worth of components, minus the PSU, drives, etc. and then made the comment; it looks pretty doesn't it? (Add sarcasm here) ***
3. The article stated that the R-Pi comes with some peripherals, like wireless mouse and keyboard, which it clearly isn''t supplied with.
4. I stated that Linux is an O/S system and nothing to do with the processor.
5. It wasn't the R-Pi website which crashed, but their suppliers / distributors, Farnell and RS.
Re-reading the article, there are a couple of other points (at least) that I didn't pick up on the first time around:
6. R-Pi didn't release the $25 (Model A) version at the same time as the Model B. The Model A hasn't been released yet.
7. Both Models, to start with, will be released without a case.
I hope they publish my comments, but I''m doubtful.
