The much hyped and eagerly awaited Raspberry Pi -- a $35 computer the size of a credit card -- is finally moving out of the testing room and into consumers' hands. If you were one of the lucky 10,000 people who were able to pre-order the first run of the Raspberry Pi back in March, you should be receiving your mini-computer by April 20. And by mini, we mean miniature and stripped down. The Raspberry Pi computer is built around the ARM chip that is used in most mobile phones.

Google Chairman Eric Schmidt wants to help Britain get its computer science curriculum in order, and he thinks that the $35 Raspberry Pi computer can help. "The success of the BBC Micro in the 1980s shows what's possible," Schmidt said Wednesday during a talk at London's Science Museum called "Why Science Matters. " "There's no reason why Raspberry Pi shouldn't have the same impact, with the right support. " Schmidt's shout-out to the bare-bones computer that is about the size of a credit card, and the price of a textbook, came right after he announced that Google would be sponsoring the charity Teach First in a project to take more than 100 "exceptional" graduates in the computer science field and prepare them to teach in secondary schools.

The Raspberry Pi, a $35 computer about the size of a credit card, made headlines last week when all the 10,000 units available for pre-order were snatched up just minutes after they went on sale. Even after the units had sold out, international interest in the computer was so rabid that the websites of the two retailers authorized to sell it — Premier Farnell and RS Components Ltd. — crashed under the weight of the traffic. "We weren't surprised by the enthusiastic reaction," said Eben Upton, executive director of the Raspberry Pi Foundation in Britain.

There is more at stake than test scores in the effort to provide iPads to 600,000 Los Angeles Unified students in time for the state's upcoming switch to online achievement exams. If my inbox is a measure of public opinion, the district's credibility is on the line in ways that may haunt the school system for years to come. My column last week on the glitch-plagued iPad rollout drew criticism from readers who said I unfairly blamed class warfare for resistance to Supt. John Deasy's plan to give every student in the predominantly poor and minority district a $678 tablet.
