RASPBERRY PI: No, we didn't misspell "pie." This is a $35 computer the size of a credit card, created "to put the fun back into learning computing," according to the Raspberry Pi Foundation, a UK registered charity. It's probably got more sha-bang than most computers languishing in the back of classrooms out there: Ethernet, TV, HDMI, audio outputs, USB ports...check out the specs here. The Register has already done a thorough analysis, claiming that the Raspberry Pi is already being heralded as "the saviour of modern IT education in UK classrooms." (There's already a forum for its educational application.) The first batch of 10,000 is expected to be released in December, primarily for programmers, a plan that head David Braben says will help shore up a base of software and support channels before deploying to schools. Sound like a pretty sweet Christmas present, don't ya think?
