I found this article which really made me ROFL.
A raspberry-Pi killer costing 'only $300'. They still don't seem to get it!

SlashDot entry about the 24 hour RPi hackathon.

As usual the RPi gets a little savaged in the comments so anyone who enjoys their RPi might want to go over and share some experiences.

I would be interested in paying with this as it sounds interesting, but when I try and unpack the downloaded image file I am told it is corrupt. Has anyone else managed to download and unpack the image file?

An update:
Just tried to unpack the file on my Linux machine and there it worked OK. The same downloaded file gives an error trying to unpack it on my Windows machine. I am not sure why they should be different and whether the img file produced on Linux is actually OK. I am going to try and write the image that unpacked OK on the Linux machine to an SD card to see if it boots the Pi successfully into Plan 9.

What a coincidence - I almost never even look at The Sun, but this morning someone had left one (The Irish Sun, Friday December 14 2012) on the bus seat and for some reason I picked it up to glance through to kill the time aboard: in the 'Something for the Weekend' section there's this 'Get in gear' sub-section edited by Lee Price and today it featured the Raspberry Pi!

January 2013 issue of UK magazine 'Linux Format' (LXF166) -

1) The 512MB Pi is reviewed and explained essentially as though it is an all-new product that the reader may not have heard of or know much about. Fair and balanced.

2) An article on using OpenRemote for home automation on the Raspberry Pi.

3) An article on building custom distros on the Pi.

This UK magazine usually has at least one major project or how-to involving the Raspberry Pi, with some pretty diverse subjects covered so far.

You made the New York Times -- congratulations! Here's the link:

A Tiny Computer Attracts a Million Tinkerers

Nice article, with great RasPi enlarged photo in the print edition giving entirely the wrong impression about how small it is. They also give the wrong impression with this line:
There is no on-off switch. To turn it off, you simply pull out the power cable.
They left out the part about corrupting your file system :-) But otherwise great press.

Excellent - thanks! We didn't realise that was coming out so soon (Eben's interview with them was at the end of last week). I'm sticking it on the front page when I've listened to it.
