The Raspberry Pi is here at last -- now what can you do with it? We've been champing at the bit waiting for the Raspberry Pi here at Gizmodo UK, but we're please to report that the Raspberry Pi Foundation has managed to ship that mini-marvel of applied Great British Geekery for a shade over 21 quid.
