I was reading about the Kingston MobileLite Wireless Card Reader which, as its name suggests, is a wireless card reader meant for use with tablets and phones with limited internal storage. The connection between the tablet and the MobileLite is an ad hoc wifi network. One of its clever features comp...

Re: Will there be a heads up about the launch?

<t>Everyone should keep in mind two important factors relevant to all this.<br/> <br/> Firstly, we are not the target audience.  I'm sure the Foundation members are delighted about the buzz surrounding the Pi but the primary aim of the foundation is to promote IT in schools, particularly in the UK. ...

Re: Raspberry Pi Booting into LXDE

<t>It is fairly slow but when I get mine, I certainly don't expect to be turning mine on and off too often.<br/> <br/> It looks like the standard distro will be Fedora rather than Debian but I'll be using Debian on mine.  Debian is the granddaddy of the distros and it's the one I know best and trust...

Re: Plan for a DIY laptop, but will it work?

The only way to connect a HD to a Raspberry Pi is by USB and it must boot from the SD card.

Re: XBMC running on Raspberry Pi

<t>How intriguing.<br/> <br/> I was just looking at an app for my Android tablet that can act as a remote for XBMC and it set me wondering as to whether XBMC would run on the R Pi.  I did a quick search and lo and behold, what do I find but this video.<br/> <br/> Liz's teasingly worded post only int...

Re: Looking for a low power LAMP server solution, is this it?

<t>I have run a LAMP server on a device that was roughly the same spec as the model B and it coped absolutely fine.<br/> <br/> As for the SD card issue, it really depends.  These devices are nowhere near as delicate as people seem to think.  Most modern cards incorporate wear levelling and if you us...

Re: Will you get the A or B? Why?

<t>I will be choosing B also because of the networking but I'd like both (probably several of each in fact).<br/> <br/> To the large number of you who are saying B for the memory, have you ever run anything like this before?  I have several plug computers running as servers for my family and running...
