What about out of the box thinking and using an embedded cellphone. The cell has android grade cpu .5 gb ram 2 gb hard disk, wifi, gsm, gps and of course the full suite of android apps. Here is one I found on amazon http://www.amazon.com/Sharp-Unlocked-Touchscreen-Keyboard-Bluetooth/dp/B007V6F2VI/ref=sr_sp-btf_title_1_7?ie=UTF8&qid=1384384147&sr=8-7&keywords=cheap+tablets+under+50+gps

BerryClip Addon Board

Don't forget the BerryClip addon board! It's like the Fish Dish but has been around longer, has 6 leds and loads of example Python scripts. It's also much cheaper.

Multicore development

I would add to the list the multicore development board for the Pi, coming from xCore, reported recently in EDN.

Oh, but wait. That means you've heard of it, so it doesnt belong on this list. Ah, well, never mind, then.

Industry maturity
LarryM99   11/11/2013 6:24:56 PM
This is the fun part, where the industry is small and everyone is still talking to each other. Soon enough, assuming this industry takes off, we will get to the point where big money is involved and everyone talks through their lawyers and PR departments. It is going to be interesting to see if the open source ethos holds up through this. When IBM published their PC bus specification it was a radical move, and they most likely only got away with doing it because Corporate IBM considered PCs to be inconsequential to "real" computing. This generation is starting out from a different base - I am looking forward to seeing where they end up.

What about the chipKIT Pi that I mentioned in my Arduinos on Steroids blog?

Leonard Nimoy, We'll Miss you

Like many of you, I was saddened to hear the news of Leonard Nimoy's death. His Star Trek character Mr. Spock was an inspiration to many of us who entered technical fields.
