  1. Ahh!
    So THAT’S the reason for the ’embrace of death’ on adafruit.com today!
    Well, for a while; now you’re out of Pi 2’s!!

    Looking forward to it. Such a fantastic team, those RasPi folks.

    Just an amazing product.

  2. Will the processor reference manual for this version be available?

  3. Sounds like the perfect Pi to host my weewx (for the Davis Vantage Pro2 ISS), my ADS-B Ground Station, and the HF WSPR beacon, all on the same device.
