=============================================================== From: Chad Smith ------------------------------------------------------ I was wondering when they were going to upgrade this. *- Chad W. Smith*

=============================================================== From: Wil Wade ------------------------------------------------------ Note that this is not the Raspberry Pi B+ which was just announced: http://www.raspberrypi.org/blog/#introducing-raspberry-pi-model-b-plus I think I'll wait for the Raspberry Tau

=============================================================== From: Wil Wade ------------------------------------------------------ It was a joke. Pi * 2 = Tau. As far as I know there are no public plans for a Pi 2.

=============================================================== From: "Alex Smith (K4RNT)" ------------------------------------------------------ How do the Banana Pi compare to the BeagleBoard? Would be interested in trying out both. " 'With the first link, the chain is forged. The first speech censured, the first thought forbidden, the first freedom denied, chains us all irrevocably.'

=============================================================== From: Chad Smith ------------------------------------------------------ The Banana Pi is better, how do I know? Because the Beagle Board has been out forever. The Banana Pi is newer, and therefore better. In technology Newer [image: \overset{\underset{\mathrm{def}}{}}{=3D} \!\,] Better, Newer [image: :\Leftrightarrow \!\,] Better, Newer [image: \triangleq \!\,] Better. If something then, is Newer, we know =E2=88=B4it is Better - by definition= . Really, I just wanted to copy and paste all those different =3D symbols in there. Wikipedia is awesome. But, really, Beagle Board is like crazy years old. The future is now. *- Chad W. Smith* all ns :

=============================================================== From: "Alex Smith (K4RNT)" ------------------------------------------------------ Does your assessment apply to the BeagleBone Black as well?

=============================================================== From: Chad Smith ------------------------------------------------------ Graverobbing - but the Banana Pi people have released the Banana Pro. http://www.lemaker.org/ I can't find a direct side-by-side comparison chart anywhere, so I'm having problems figuring out what is "improved" about it. But.... it's a newer therefore, it must be better. :D *- Chad W. Smith* d all \,] Better, er - by in n , and re all : d: lus
