Re: Power lead

I already have a kindle lead, was looking at it and thought i wonder if that will power my Raspberry when i get it

What do you mean by 5v regulated supply though, will this lead by default be that, if connected to my pc or mains in the uk?

Re: Power lead

Hi,

Just a quick question and hopefully its not too stupid. It says that the Pi is powered by a micro usb 5v yes, Is that the same as the amazon kindle wire you get? If so that will be very handy.

Thanks in advance jim.

Re: ARM Emulator

Hi guys,

I did a quick forum search but it found nothing, I was wondering if someone could recommend a decent ARM emulator for windows so that i could start running some assembly code.

Any help would be really great
