Re: Question: Super Rasberry pi

Mark - I think that rather than having a physical toggle, we're looking at the thing resetting when the power is interrupted. Sorry if I didn't make that clear earlier!

Scottland89 and others - we're not going to support device mode USB out of the box, but we may do subsequently.

Re: Alpha Version

We don't have any formal plans for Android support yet, but we do believe the device is capable of running Android.

Re: Fond memories

<t>Oh my god - the turtle! There used to be fights in my school over who'd get to play with the thing on the once-a-term high days it came out of the IT cupboard. Like you say, there wasn't much you could do with it, but it was hella cool, and made for a great intro to some of the fundamentals of pr...

Re: Challenge the Mac

I don't think we're really competing in the same market segment as Apple! I do agree, though, that an integrated Pi+monitor is a lovely idea; that said, we have plenty on our hands at the moment getting ready for launch!

Afraid not - they're already all spoken for by our developers, who are using them for - you know - development!

Re: Fond memories

<t>We've been looking back at the learning materials we used back in the early 80s on our school computers (in my case, the BBC Micro) and reminiscing. What were the resources you remember with real fondness? I guess my real introduction came at home rather than at my girls' school, where home econo...

Re: Teaching Youngsters Programming

<t>I'd say that proper programming can be taught to kids as soon as they're able to read - no need to wait until they're ten! I love the idea of a RaspberryPi club. I was a member of a BBC Micro club when I was a kid, and it was sad to see the same club gradually morph into a club for teaching peopl...

Re: How would you use a Raspberry Pi device?

<t>@HC Initially, at least, onboard wifi is just prohibitively expensive, and will drive the price of the device to a point way above where we want it to be if we're actually going to get it into the hands of the people we want to see using it. Later iterations will, we hope, have wifi, because if w...

Re: What have we missed?

<t>Is the analogue audio will be a 3.5mm jack (I suspect it will)?<br/> <br/> It will, yes. As for WiFi, at the moment it doesn't look like we'll be able to add it and keep to the price point. Future iterations of the device might have WiFi - if we get good sales volume, it means we will have better...
