Amedia Computer announces USB-keyboard with real Amiga-keys
During the next weeks the French trader Amedia Computer will offer USB-keyboards in black or beige/white which are equipped with real Amiga-keys - in the past, similar projects only used Windows-keys with labels.

A picture made available by Amedia shows some more changes compared with an usual PC-keyboard:

The "menu"-key became a BoingBall-key and either the ScrollLock or the Ende-key are additionally labeled with "Help". Besides, the curly brackets are placed again above the numeric keypad.

Keyboard layouts for Great Britain (QWERTY) and French (AZERTY) are supposed to be available, but a German version is not planned. Amedia did not specify which company will produce the keyboards.

The keyboards have an USB-port and will be exclusively sold by Amedia. Preordered, the keyboard costs 199 Euro. The normal price is about 220 Euro. (cg) (Translation: dr)

Floppy-Emulator: Raspberry pi as disk drive replacement
The Italian Maurizo Ramondo has replaced the disk drive of his Amiga 500 by a Raspberry Pi: The single-board computer was connceted to the internal floppy port of the Amiga with a simple adapter developed by Ramondo and in this way emulates two disk drives.

As data medium the SD-card of the Raspberry Pi is used - the credit-card-sized computer was put in the A500, so it is accessable through the original disk drive slot. The emulated floppy is ready seven seconds after booting the Amiga because Ramondo did not want to use Linux and instead of it uses a self developed programm, which has 240 KB.

After a reset, the Amiga boots a setup programm. There you can assign one or several ADF-images to the emulated drives. While operating you can switch between the ADF-files with a key.

The developer made available all documents as well as the software on his website for free. (cg) (Translation: dr)

AROS: AEROS beta version 5 for Raspberry Pi
The fifth beta version of Pascal Papara's Debian-Linux-hosted AROS-distribution AEROS for the Raspberry Pi now also is available for unregistered users - as usual without the lx-command which can launch Linux-applications out of AROS.

In this version AROS-ARHMfh-components of Krzysztof 'deadwood' Smiechowicz were updated, clicking on AHI pref icon doesn't crash it anymore and the icons are "not as ugly as" in the last release. (snx) (Translation: dr)
