Jon Axelson is quite good!  - used a prev version of that book in a prev job. Are you going to play with the 8u2 ?   

My latest buy (in Arduino domain) is this logic analyzer : - http://www.saleae.com/logic/ -

I got one of those 4 relay, and 8 relay boards too.

The nano I just ordered are going to be used for the 8 relay board, and when that is working, and I have finished my multitask stuff for the home automation nodes, I am going to get one of those big 16 relay boards... Just because they are made.

Those displays are pretty cool!
When you have a look at the command set, it kinda leaves you wondering what your Arduino is going to be doing!
They have multiple UARTS, SPI, I2C, GPIO pins.
I think the language has built in support for parsing NMEA sentences.

Very nice.. little pricey for me at the moment.  Does everything but the laundry!  I wonder how long before cheap knockoffs flood the market or simply mass-production cost savings will be.  I think it's out of the price range of most hobbyists, though.. I think things seem to do best below $50 US.  More of a mental limit than a financial one at times, I think.  $20 is usually the limits of "pocket cash", You can talk yourelf into spending $50, but it's exponentially harder to talk yourself into $100.  The thing looks far too fun to play with.. I hope the market price comes down on them....

However, I can't stop myself from posting this.  It's far too classic not to post.  Was cruising ebay, just surfing around.. and I found this:



I think it's actually real.

It's just so darn funny, especially the Jersey Shore Dude.  I just can't stop loving this ad.
When the testing is complete there will be... cake.

Ever run across an item on eBay that is utterly impractical but just too darn cool not to share?

The hard part is trying to figure out how to mount it to the shark's head... :P

3 Zablets. That is a TV-B-Gone clone, done by the OSAA (Hackerspace in Århus). A friend wanted one, so I bought 3, soldered one for her. I think I will give one of the kits as Xmas gift to some nephews.
