I've been following google's experimental dartino project which uses the dart language. https://dartino.org/ They support rpi2 and this cool STM32F746G-DISCO dev board. My local element 14 has them for au$82

I understand +Leo Laporte concern of new image tag in amp, but it seems custom tags/elements are not new.
http://www.html5rocks.com/en/tutorials/webcomponents/customelements/

There is a draft w3c spec.
http://w3c.github.io/webcomponents/spec/custom/
This article describes how to use document.register to define custom elements in HTML.

Support and use of custom tags as a container within your own site is different from Google requiring use of a that custom tag on publishers' sites as part of AMP.

The <img> tag doesn't require JS to function, unlike <amp-img>. <img> has its deficiencies, especially in a mobile/responsive design world, which make alternative tags like <amp-img> an ugly necessity.

Some feel that perhaps using a standard <img> tag, while defining special attributes to provide the same level of responsive support would keep within pure HTML standards while enabling the enhancements Google seeks to provide. If you strip away the AMP JS dependencies, you would still have a functioning image.

Pi Zero, networked and powered over USB, running dart v1.12.2 controlling a led.
It's a poor picture, the pi zero, armv6 chip, is below a raspberry pi 2 board.
I just wanted to show how small the pi zero is.
Would be nice to have better dart and or fletch support, as there could be a lot of pi zero out there soon.

For a small server another option, if you can wait, is the us$9 chip computer, armv7, 4gb storage, wifi and bluetooth, due to ship June 2016.
http://docs.getchip.com/#chip-hardware
It seem the Allwinner R8 chip has a USB 2.0 OTG and a USB host.

Dart armv7 builds are available at https://www.dartlang.org/downloads/archive/

This may not be dart relevant any more.
Oilpan v1 has been completed, dev (51) and beta (50) chrome channels are now running the oilpan gc.

AFAIK GC of V8 and Oilpan (GC of Blink) are cooperative separate processes.

I am a fan of a few twit show and like to cast the live stream to the TV from time to time. The only app that I could use to cast twit was unreliable, I ended up having cast my phone's screen to the TV.

This new app, Twit cast, is a few dollars and seem to work fine so far.
Will see how it goes tomorrow mornig and report back.

ASUS CHROMEBOX2-G007U i7-5500U / 4GB / 16GB SSD
Amazom.de has it as a i7-4010, but I think this is a mistake.
http://www.amazon.de/Asus-Chromebox2-G007U-Desktop-PC-i7-4010U-Graphics/dp/B0119TK2H6


Really interested in the price of the i3 and the i7 ASUS chromebox2 in the USA.

HP has great printer support on android and chrome, so my 10 years old HP printer was out of ink, so I went looking.

Pick up this printer today for $129, might be a few years old now, but A3 with duplex is cool. It's big, don't know how it will go on ink.

We don't print much, but might use the A3 flat bed scanner every now and then.
