Check the heading on this eBay listing
ZIF Socket - 40 Pin universal DIP IC Arduino By 3M
WTF has a ZIF socket ad got to do with Arduino? Has it got to the point were every piece of electronics development hardware is “Arduino compatible”? How about resistors, they are Arduino compatible, and capacitors, AND gates, the 4067 MUX, heck so are electrons for that matter.
And for beginners, I’ve got a great deal on some Arduino-compatible solder (PM me for a low price).
Can anybody explain a valid reason for the word “Arduino” being in the heading? Or is it just an attempt to pop up in a Google/eBay search for Arduino stuff?
Confused and/or mildly pissed off
