Hardware Hacking

A $25 PC On a USB Stick 352

KPexEA writes with this excerpt from geek.com: "[Game developer David] Braben has developed a tiny USB stick PC that has an HDMI port on one end and a USB port on the other. You plug it into an HDMI socket and then connect a keyboard via the USB port, giving you a fully functioning machine running a version of Linux. The cost? $25. The hardware being offered is no slouch either. It uses a 700MHz ARM11 processor coupled with 128MB of RAM and runs OpenGL ES 2.0, allowing for decent graphics performance with 1080p output confirmed. ... We can expect it to run a range of Linux distributions, but it looks like Ubuntu may be the distro it ships with. That means it will handle web browsing, run office applications, and give the user a fully functional computer to play with as soon as it's plugged in. All that and it can be carried in your pocket or on a key chain."

I don't think people should be labeled as trolls simply for having a conflicting opinion. It's when they decided to voice that opinion like an asshole that they become a troll, or even completely drop the discussion and go out of their way to try and derail the discussion by posting crap like the Yoda doll or whatever it is the trolls are spamming these days.

C for yourself.
