The Raspberry Pi mini computer now ships with 512MB of RAM, up from 256MB, for the same $35 price. Tasty. [Raspberry Pi]
I really want to believe that this comically tiny computer actually works. It's so ridiculous: a mouse smaller than a fingernail, power cords as thin as hair, a monitor smaller than my thumb and the PC tower still boots up?
Seymour Cray's big super computer was crazy. It's signals between components had to be timed by trimming long cables up to 1/16th of an inch at a time by hand and was basically interwoven with a giant refrigeration system.
