SlashDot.org has an "Ask SlashDot" post going, as I write this:
"Ask Slashdot: Why Buy a Raspberry Pi
When I Have a Perfectly Good Cellphone?"
It's here, with a growing number of coments:
Inside it was a short post that -extended- it just a bit:
"Why Ras.Pi ... I've a [RockBox-compat.] MP3 player

Open Source "RockBox" ought to give folks a clue on
how to access the capabilities of a wide range of MP3-
players - from Apple iPod's to Sandisk Sansa Clip Zip's,
& lots more.
(Some have video functions, too, but I don't know how
much of these would be accessed / used by RockBox.)
Numerous model-specific user manuals & a 1st-class
web site make this Open Source project worthy of
emulation, as well as useful to -both- end-users and
experimenter / developers of innovative replacement
firmware for many models & various applications.

--- Editorial note:
Computer geeks seem to love programming -so- much,
that they tend - in good ole' Open Source tradition -
to "give away" -both- the resulting applions -and- the
programs' Source Code, enabling others to "stand on
their shoulders" and see a little bit farther... & improve
their software, for our community.
I would encourage more Hams to do the same. :-)
