wouldn't it be good if in 30 or so years we could all sell our pi's for £240K
Since hundreds of thousands, perhaps eventually millions of Pi boards are being built, all but a couple of hundred would have to be destroyed before the surviving boards could even begin to approach Apple I value. You first, of course, since I'm such a nice guy
The already-auctioned Pi beta boards, plus the ~100 in the field, and the even-more-rare alphas (-10?) will likely be the only ones to ever escape landfill value.
Then, there's the posthumous Steve Jobs worship factor that's about twice what the adulation factor was worth when he was alive, which I'm guessing Eben won't be interested in replicating anytime soon (Liz would have to indicate her preference, of course
The best things in life aren't things ... but, a Pi comes pretty darned close!
