Trying to make a pun sorry.

Well the one(s) around here, at least the one I frequent about 2 months ago started selling kits to build simple things with and PICAXE (ugg), now the say there going to start carrying the UNO, the MEGA, SD shield, and Ethernet Shield. I just got the flyer in today, looks cool.

Note the manager and 2 of the staff are long time hobbyist, so they personally want RadioShack to become better than when it started.

you buy mints, but you hate mint so you give them away but keep the tin

Heh. I rarely throw out an Altoids tin. I have a stash. smiley And sometimes, I even find a use for them -- as just yesterday, I put several bags of ceramic caps in one, and labeled it. Lots of little electronics projects for those tins, such as the Minty Boost.

I got an even better one.
Take a can-opener to the top of soda cans and using them to store resistors, caps, and IC's, 1 Value/type per 2 cans.

Or when you have had to apologize to your wife for burning a hole in the dining room tablecloth (carpet, family pet, etc) with said soldering iron..



Or burn a hole is a sofa from when you crossed 2 wires by mistake.

Well its finally here,  RadioShack (not so much RadioCrap anymore) has made another big leap towards becoming hobbyist friendly.  There prices are good too, I'm starting to like them again.

3Kg of yellow cake could power an arduino for a very long time, if you happen to have a nuclear reactor in your yard.

Funny you should say that...

Now thats cool.

Thank you for clearing up that misunderstanding I had (slightly embarrassing.) haha.

Yes I quite like nuclear energy.  (According to GSU) about 3kg of natural uranium can power the entire USA with surplus energy. I like those numbers.

Android
Ubuntu
Windows CE6
I think that has all the features you are talking about not to mention you can put on any ARM arc OS.

Ubuntu One and Google = Mobile me (but cheeper)
Android Store and Ubuntu Software Center = App Store
(Ubuntu and Windows CE) flash = "Ahh what's flash" (At least thats what I think they say.)
the list goes on.

The iPad, well any device that runs the iOS is really limited.

7in Resistive touch screen and can be conected to a TV with an included HDMI port.
When conected to TV it is HD. (Thats what the website says here is a link. http://en.smartdevices.com.cn/Products/V7/200912/04-40.html)

@robtillaart
I have seen one before and used it for a few min, Will be ordering one soon there cool.  It is said you need a little computer experience to get all the features working all the way though.

The smartdevice SmartQ V7 runs windows CE, Android, and a modded Ubuntu (For use with touch screens). it also has a USB port. Ubuntu will upload arduino sketches.

All those people like Apple and Samsung are only out there for money, find manufactures that are out there for the people.
and yes smartdevices is from China but where do you think all the iPads are made...China.

(This is an add on to one of my earlier posts.)

I personally just run off 5V wallwarts, and don't even use regulators.


But that output is not always clean or exact, I have noticed as much as +6 volts (greater than the output) ripple on wall warts. and a 9 volt  reg being 11.5 volts

I know, this was just an idea.

I know but if you do not want to take apart a good wall wart.
