Why is Makey Makey and Raspberry Pi merged into one topic? lol, ones a computer, one's an input device

anyways, I've been meaning to get a Raspberry Pi to make into a media centre as well, though I'm not too sure whether the investment is worth it or whether I'll pull through

nah f*ck off

i cant play bare of my porn on this ting cause most of it is in FLV files i ripped off sites a few years ago, even some of the AVI ones dont work, still havent bought the mpeg2 codec, and for some reason mpeg4 still doesnt work, wmv i dont even know

i just realised accidentally that openelec has airplay, so i can browse prawn sites on my iphone then stream it directly on the Pi instead of the phone

u mwad?

gonna try transcoding with a upnp server or something that can read flv files

best £60 ive spent in a minute

Hardkernel reveals pair of quad-core Exynos ODROID-U developer boards, starting at $69

odroiduhardkernalannounce-1354365081.jpg

One area where Moore's law can be seen alive and well seems to be the developer and small project computer world. Whether it's the ubiquitous Raspberry Pi,Intel's NUC, or any number of similar products. There's one more name to add to this list, and that's the ODROID-U from Hardkernel. The boards are a little more expensive than Raspberry Pi's impressively cheap Model A and Model B, but you are getting some bang for that buck. The $69 ODROID-U comes with a 1.4GHz quad-core Exynos 4412 processor (as found in the Galaxy S III and Note II, 1GB of RAM, quad-core Mali 400 graphics, micro-HDMI, a brace of USB ports, a headphone jack and Ethernet. If you want a little more oomph, for an extra $20 you can have the RAM doubled, and a 1.7GHz core with the ODROID-U2 model. There's one stat you might notice missing which is flash memory. There's no onboard storage, so you'll have to bring your own memory for the built-in microSD slot. As the ODROID name suggests, the boards can run Android, as well as a variety of Linux flavours. Sound good? In a reverse of what you might expect, the ODROID-U2 will be available first, starting December 21st, with the cheaper board pencilled in to arrive on January 16th.
