  • News - Heartbleed | last week

    I concur, this is the first I have heard about it!! No contact from Google saying their servers may have issues etc.

    I am glad I am not the only one having an issue identifying the purpose of this. What is the advantage of using this over an RPi for example? Why would I want to use this instead of an Arduino?

  • Product WRL-11678 | about 9 months ago

    I’m confused (not hard I assure you!). I want a device that can take an audio (line level) input and send it to a Bluetooth headset. I believe that this can’t do that as it seems to only have microphone inputs. Are there any products that would take line level and transmit it?

    I agree. A very ingenious idea but expensive. I counted 20 cubes in the opening part of the video, that is, what at least $500?

    I have no idea what the first product was, I was too busy laughing! Excellent humor!

    Maybe even some form of autonomous rover that could be given a route and go on its own then report back. Of course that may probably need to have some sophisticated programing so it doesn’t get stuck/drive off a cliff etc!

    A quadcopter that could skirt the ground could be another solution. It could be set to be only a few feet from the ground, say head height. Using gps for location and utrasonics/radar for height.

    All I was thinking is that I have a load of 5V wall warts from old devices that I no longer use, many of which have a jack connection. Micro usb connectors are quite tricky to solder to given the pin pitch. Having a quality molded adapter is much more preferable to some hack I could put together, with less risk of having shorts or breaks. Not to mention it is much easier getting a wall wart with 1 amp+ (as most of mine are) compared to most micro usbs that I get with phones rating a paltry 500mA.

    It is just a thought what with the rPi going micro usb as well. Come to think of it, I have a few older mini-usb warts - time to check their power output and ebay some adapters.

    BTW - I am typing this on my pcDuino :o) It is great, more than fast enough to do a little web browsing!

    “My comments where not made directly to/about the Sparkfun Community”

    Maybe it would have been better to send comments directly to SF? Posting up in a public forum implies that the comment is intended for the general populous to read and respond to. As you pointed out calling the guy a ‘weirdo’ was probably not the best adjective and it isn’t surprising people responded defensively (especially the people who work with him).

No public wish lists :(
