  • “The Arduino 101 is only available for customers in the USA. If you are located in Canada, the EU, or the Middle East be sure to check out the Genuino 101 instead.” So, no love for México?

  • Nice article! I also open my toys, specially power supplies. Those spring contacts in the Google supply were common in Nokia cellphone chargers of yore. Also, I remember UL was for Underwriters, not Universal, but maybe they changed names. I love to find “hidden treasures” in supplies. I serviced one that had a small, green LED (smaller than a 3 mm one) hidden beneath cables and components. The case didn’t even had a window for it so it did its work of “power on” indication, but no one will ever see it. If you want a perfect example of a supply missing the “good” corner of the mgmt. triangle, open a cheap clone of the Apple cube charger. I was terrified to see how many ways of starting a fire it had!

  • Thank you!

  • Does it include the USB extension as depicted in photo 3? Or is it just the board?

  • My thoughts and prayers to the victims of this heinous crime, and my deepest condolences to the families. Having said that and with the outmost respect to all of them, this horrible attack proves that Adafruit boards work as intended, IF and only if, that was the piece used. I think it is very irresponsible of the network not to clarify it was an example, and for illustration purposes only, as many textbooks (printed or e-), articles, posts, etc., add as a foot note. But I think as makers, we must explain that to others. We are responsible not only to spread the word on tech, but to explain details like this to clear any doubt about it.

  • As with every WiFi shield SparkFun starts selling, I must ask to those who have the experience, is this shield better in any way to the WiFly shield also sold by SparkFun? I use WiFly but I’ve been trying to find a shield with better support and documentation and can’t afford to buy every one that comes out. Any comments?

  • Thanks for the pics! They helped me decide not to buy this product. I thought the plastic was attached to the board and the LEDs were grown on the PCB, as in COBs. But your first photo shows every segment is epoxy encapsulated, so no use to me. I was going to use my own ultra-high intensity traffic-light green SMT LEDs, but this changes it all. Thanks again!

  • Seasoned wifi shield users: Is this board easier to use than the WiFly shield? I’ve been using the WiFly shield for some time now and it works great for me. Is this shield any better? Easier to configure, easier to make it work? Any thoughts on this? Thank you in advance.

  • Please, stock this in right angle and double row variants, please!

  • You’re The Man, man!!

No public wish lists :(
