"Unlike the Nexus 4 there are no buttons on the front of the device, and the screen appears to be bigger at 5.5in or so wide."

Clocks that are powered by weights are centuries old. And this light is not powered by gravity. It's powered by the human who lifts the weight onto its hook.
My order confirmation says "Delivered in 3-5 business days". Either Google's shipping estimates are a fine source of entropy, or they had multiple tranches with different shipping windows.
MODE 7 is teletext mode, and I believe it works as it is a software emulation (and always has been in RISC OS; the BBC Micro had a hardware teletext chip.)
As for all your old games, they probably won't work: the ARM11 in the Raspberry Pi lacks the old 26 bit code addressing mode used by original Acorn systems and so only software patched or recompiled etc will function.
(Stuff in pure BBC Basic with no assembler will probably still work.)
Yes. That doesn't stop it being wide-spread, though. Look at GTK for a good example. Plus, native compilation means you can run the package's test suite too.
If you're building software for ARM and you want to do it natively (lots of software can't be cross-built without significant misery), one of these things is going to be a hell of a lot quicker than using QEMU on an x86 box, not to mention smaller, less cabling, etc, and most likely cheaper, too.
It's ARM, so PXE doesn't make sense. But from the docs on on the Baserock website suggests you can "netboot" them from the management node: "The system management node manages the compute nodes, e.g. power up/down, reset, overall system monitoring and provisioning of images to the compute nodes"
I wonder how long this data will take to appear on BitTorrent. You only need one person out of the 3,512 people to be a shit. And to be honest, that's quite likely :)

Just like all USB audio, then
The point is that *all* USB audio is done asynchronously, so saying this is a feature is just balls.
"the rDac uses audio specialist Data Conversion Systems' (dCS) asynchronous USB system"
Err, all USB audio is asynchronous. It has to be, otherwise it doesn't work. I suspect it's actually just a Texas Instruments USB<->I2S chip, and an upsampler chip by dCS.
x86? What's that? Other than something Microsoft came up with to not upset Intel when talking about AMD64?
Forever on Google Maps?
25 grand, and no amplifcation? Pah.
You want a pair of Meridian DSP8000 loud speakers. Commonly considered to be the best on earth, they're around 30k per pair, but that includes DACs and amplification (they take digital in). All the magic's done in the digital domain for no loss. And they're made from cabinets that don't look like they'll vibrate, like glass.
I'd subscribe to Spotify if it didn't cost as much as a TV licence. Tenner a month? Bugger off.
It's perfectly possible to recharge of a 13A 110V socket in 10 minutes. It just means the car can only have the equivalent of ten laptop batteries. So, this car may be able to go at 300mph, but only for three feet.
