cotton candy and jelly bean
« on: November 26, 2012, 04:01:15 am »

 They just keep getting smaller. These computers can boot from a micro sd card and sport a full usb port, micro sd slot and hdmi for tv or monitor with jelly bean at the ready. novel if nothing else.

Haven't tried the Android devices, but the Raspberry Pi is working out great for me.

Yes, the raspberry pi would be a much better choice for playing around. one can use the old ps1 screens for desktop fun. I am not sure about the pi power supply but sure there are lots of options. I think I will get one. The sticks are still an interesting pocket size device. Originally I was looking to see if the vivaldi open tablet had finally come about. anyway nice diversions. enjoy the pi
