  • Parallella: A Supercomputer?

    ARM board with 16-core Epipany RISC processors


    I got this in March, 2014 while the promised delivery date was May 2013. The product was unique enough to make a year delay feasible. However, the ebook, Intro to Parallel Programming, which was add-on, was no where to be found. There was even no word about it. I doubted that they would care writing one or issuing $25 refund anymore. I might be wrong though.

  • OBDLink MX WiFi

    On-board diagnostics (OBD) was’t anything new. It was with all your vehicle since roughly 1980, but it was widespread over the past decades since the law required.

    OBD, OBD-II specificly, adapter came in many forms. I used to use standalone one which gave you code, so you could look at the manual and figure out what was about. Since smartphone emerged, OBD adapter with Bluetooth and USB arrived. This was the time for Wi-Fi; better connectivity surely, faster than Bluetooth; more reliability presumably.

  • Legion Meter -- a USB current meter

    This was from one of established companies which came to start a new product line and new customers of course. They used to do a portable battery with a indicator; this shouldn’t be hard for them, should they?
