  • I disagree. When I want to use or learn something, I rarely seek out advice beyond a datasheet from the manufacturer, who will generally be trying to push proprietary commercial toolchains and development tools.
    AVR's success in the community has everything to do with AVR-GCC and the oodles of free open source projects (hardware and software) that use or relate to it.

  • It seems the capacitor problem may be fixed in new ones. I got one yesterday that works without modification.
    I wrote an Arduino library to interface it:

  • Nice buttons. They look way cool when you have a different colored LED under each one. Though, the directional middle button is fairly difficult to use as an actual directional. I'm just using all four contacts as one button.

No public wish lists :(
