Re: When are people in the U.S. getting their Pi 4s?

Adafruit had some stock of the Pi4/4 today.

But a few hours later...gone.

There's no way that those joints came out of the solder wave machine like that. At some point in its life, it has seen the pointy end of a soldering iron.

You're supposed to use the pointy end?!? D'oh!

Re: pi 4 stops working

i had return the board to shop,he already received 2 failed boards ,1 due to heavy heat another not booting with new Os. so raspberry pi foundation is making r & d with this pi4 .its not stable as pi3 or pi3 b+. waste of money putting on pi4 . Probably wrong power supplies, bad sd cards, etc.

Re: When does Amazon recieve the new Raspberry Pi's?

As far as I know, Amazon is not an official Pi reseller.

So any Pis that show up there will be from 3rd party sellers.

Not necessarily anything wrong with that, just sayin’.

Re: Does the pi throttle for temperature regardless of OS?

I just realized I have no idea if temp monitoring and throttling happens somewhere in firmware or if it's handled by Raspbian. Does it still throttle if running something else like lubuntu? Trejan gave the answer. Now... I want you to think about something. What would be the consequences, if therma...

It has already been updated twice.

First the camera connector was added then the wireless module.

A version with a pre soldered header strip was also made available.

Re: When are people in the U.S. getting their Pi 4s?

I walked into my local Microcenter and bought a Pi 4/4gb (plus power supply) the day after its debut.

They still have plenty of 1gb and 2gb models.

nodered update & 240+ new packages?

When doing an apt update/upgrade there was 1 update to nodered which led to 240+ new packages installed.

I just wanted to be sure that's correct. Haven't seen that before.

Re: RPI4, out of order and Spectre vulnerabilities

Specter and Meltdown became extremely well known simply because their names invoke frightening images. Like something out of a Bond movie.

The pop media outlets caught on and ran with it.

Never let the facts get in the way of a good story.

Only about 5 or 6 of the 4gb models but plenty of 1gb and 2gb boards in stock. They also had dozens of the new USB-C power supplies, both colors. So....
