A £15 computer only as big a usb stick will become available in about 12 months. It has two ends, plug one into a tv usb port then plug a keyboard into the computer stick.

I am amazed how increasingly small and compact technology gets, and I can't wait to try one of these things out.

It isn't that long ago that computers were huge and whirred and clunked and slow motion tasks.

Games developer David Braben and some colleagues came up with the Raspberry Pi - a whole computer on a tiny circuit board made with not much more than an ARM processor, a USB port, and an HDMI connection

Is David Braben still fighting Ian Bell over Elite?

Next one should be USB3 and have more RAM I think.
Not to say this isn't damned cool being so tiny.
