Re: $75 Single-board Computer Comes with Linux Preinstalled

<sniff sniff>

Mercedes have a /ton/ of problems with windows:

   windows+mercedes+problems   Results 1 - 10 of about 9,500,000

All joking aside, here's one minor one:


   Mercedes bluetooth car kit pairing htc cruise problems

   Anyone have a solution for this problem. Merc carkit recognises the HTC
   cruise, but cannot pair . All the settings are correct on the HTC. The
   HTC doesn't seem to get to the point where it allows you to key in the 16
   digit passcode.  

Seems pretty clumsy to be entering passcodes while sitting in your car,

Programmers used to batch environments may find it hard to live without
giant listings; we would find it hard to use them.
