Posted by – May 10, 2015

In 1986, Acorn shipped the ARM Development System, the world's first ARM development board to ever be sold with an ARM Processor in it, a Tube-linked second processor for the BBC Master which allowed developers to write programs for ARM! Sophie Wilson, original ARM designer at Acorn Computers, talks about the History of ARM, with the devices that used ARM1, ARM2, ARM3, ARM610 in the Apple Newton and talking about how ARM was spun out of Acorn, how the ARM business model made ARM such a huge worldwide success.

$100 Pipo X7 Intel Mini PC

Posted by – April 18, 2015

Pipo shows their X7 TV Box which they say is getting a lot of traction at the moment, from people who want a cheap Intel x86 based desktop. It uses the Intel Atom Z3736F processor with 2GB RAM runs Windows 8.1. It is selling for about $100 in China as the retail price. The price exported to other countries may be a bit different. Pipo founder Ben Lai tried to do this project 15 years ago, but the hardware was too expensive costing more than $200-$300, now he says that the ecosystem is better for this product to become popular. They are considering to dual-boot Android or perhaps ship it running Chrome OS, as the Windows licence is about $25.
