You can now become a Member of ARMdevices.net for $20/year.
For that you get:
1. Pictures/scans of business cards to all the companies that I video interview at trade shows around the world.
2. Buy some of the best value ARM Powered devices that I find, when I can get the manufacturer to agree to sell them at a good price directly to members. Consider those sample sales, but you can buy many also, and contact the manufacturer directly if you'd like to import a larger quantity. I expect to be able to provide members with some of the worlds most interesting ARM Powered tablets, laptops, HDMI Sticks, Set-top-boxes, E-readers, game players, development boards, robots, and more. Check for a status on available devices in the Members Store.
Thanks for supporting my work.
