    We're giving away a RaspberryPi!

    And the winner is... here!

    COMPETITION: RASPBERRYPI GIVEAWAY

    How do you fancy getting your hands on the hottest piece of tech of the moment... the exciting RaspberryPi mini computer?

    If you've been following the device's birth, you'll know it's finally here but EXTREMELY hard to get hold of!

    I was lucky enough to snag a unit from the early deliveries... but rather than keeping it for myself (i've come to the sad realisation I don't actually have time to develop on it as i'd like to), I want to give it away to one of you lot. Really! :)

    Nothing complicated here... you simply need to follow a couple of Twitter accounts and retweet the competition... and optionally post a quick comment in this thread to get an extra chance!

    So, to enter, use the widget below...

    a Rafflecopter giveaway

    Easy eh? :)

    The competition closes at 12:01 EST on 13/05/12. :)

    The competition terms are as follows...

    • The competition is open to everyone worldwide!
    • The judge's decision is final, no correspondence will be entered into.
    • The winner will receive a RaspberryPi, shipped globally. The recipient will be responsible for any incurred custom fees. The unit is brand new and contains only the main board itself.
    • The competition is open until 12:01 EST on 13/05/12.
    • The winner will be notified by e-mail.
    • If you enter and win, please don't stick it up on eBay. We're excited to learn about what you do with it, and hope you come back and share your experiences.
    • This is the first time we've run a competition via the third-party 'Rafflecopter' service. We're interested to hear how you find it!

    Thanks for being part of the MoDaCo community and GOOD LUCK! :)

    Why it is COOL?

    Beside learning programming, this little device has the power to become one of the most ubiquitous devices and to bring new level of our computing use.

    It is very cheap, very small, it is capable of displaying Full HD resolution videos without any problem, (look it as a better performance than iPhone 4S) it can be connected to the internet and all this means that we can have computers in every room for any purpose without worrying about related costs, electricity bills etc.

    By utilising this kind of devices, number of people using internet, social networks, etc. will grow drammaticaly and that means, more connectivity (for people), oppening of new niche markets, potential for development of new products of any kind etc.

    Random fact: I may soon have more time from my full time programming job than I was planning.

    You guys are awesome for giving away some Pi :) gotta love tasty treats, I mean, Android does :D I'm gonna have to wait for them to ship over 180,000 and looking at a Sept/Oct date :( I really would love one of these things to develop on so I can actually be able to write knowledgeable articles on the device.

    Moto Bionic and I have a Nexus S laying around, but I'm not with Sprint any more so I just toy with it.

    Thanks guys!

    • I have had further exchanges with Tesco. They are obviously not going to do anything about this other than try and bribe us with a 20 pound note. We need a concerted campaign here with as many hudl users on board as possible.  Who has time to organise this?   Maybe a petition via change.org, or an approach to bbc watchdog?
    • Hi All, Just thought I'd pass this link on - refers to an eBay advert for a Tesco HUDL 1 still being offered by Tesco Outlet as 'refurbished' for £64-50.....talk about adding insult to injury ! Worth including in any approach to the media, I would think..... Wonder if the 12 month warranty covers failure to set up after a factory reset...

    • I too have received a reply from tesco to my Emails. Here is that exchange. I feel we need a converted campaign here.     Dear Mr Phillips Thank you for your patience while I contacted our Technical Support team and asked them for an update advising what action they would be taking with our support for the Hudl Tablet. Unfortunately, the Android operating system that Hudl runs on is no longer supported by Google and although we have previously been able to temporarily resolve this issue, we are unable to do this again.  Without the necessary updates the device and its apps cannot be appropriately protected with the latest security software. I can understand how frustrating this is for you and so say sorry for the disappointment I have now requested for a £20.00 Digital Moneycard to be sent to your email address this morning with my best wishes. Kind regards, Fiona Kitching Customer Service Specialist On behalf of the Chief Executive’s Office Tel: 0800 072 6685     Dear Ms.Kitching,   This is not a question of security updates not being available. It is a common occurance that devices are not upgradeable to newer android versions and no longer are provided with updates.   It is not a common ocurance for suppliers to  make devices unusable in such a malicious manner.   I see no reason why you cannot provide users with a last update to a stock android version that has no connection to tesco servers and does not contain any tesco applications.   How many Hudls did you sell to the public, that you have effectivily bricked by turning off a server that you have deliberately made those hudls dependent on.    The deliberate consignment of many (hundreds of) thousands of perfectly good hudls to the immense scrap heap of electronic goods does not reflect well on tesco as a company.   I feel a concerted media campaign by disaffected hudl users in the making. I shall be joining that concerted effort to achieve a solution to this tesco problem.   Kind regards, Owain Phillips BSc Computer Systems Engineering Warwick University Hide quoted text       On Mon, 3 Aug 2020, 08:36 , <[email protected]> wrote:

    • Hi, If I've read it right, it looks from Wardrin's Tesco response as though they are trying to pass the buck to Google for failing to support earlier versions of Android, and using potential security issues as an excuse to duck out of their responsibilities....  This really doesn't wash - if you took their reasoning to its logical conclusion, all versions of Android no longer 'supported' by Google would be considered null and void, and it wouldn't be possible to use, let alone reinstall firmware for,  any Android device running OS versions released before this point. We know this isn't true - there will be literally millions of android tablets and phones still in regular use with early Android versions. The responsibility for any security issues with these earlier versions lies squarely with the user, so there is no justification for Tesco withholding a 'clean' update to Android 4.2.2 for HUDL1s and appropriate HUDL2s without the obligatory Tesco server visit for bloatware installation. All it would require on Tesco's part to rid themselves of the HUDL 'curse' (as I'm sure they will see it) for good would be to commission a small investment in IT time from their 3rd party providers to re-package the existing update on the existing server. They could then publicise the need to download the update within a certain time before closing the server down permanently (I think 3-6 months would be reasonable).  Sadly, I feel a media campaign coming on again.....will they never learn ?
