Now that is nice looking Steve :)

That PiPad though is financially crazy. It's something like £100 for the screen, £25 for the battery, £35 for the Pi, so that's £141 already before any of the extra bits, and then at the end you've got a Pi in a box that you can't run while it's charging, which doesn't have touch screen optimised apps, when you could have picked up a Nexus 7 for £40 more.

Off work with a chest infection, so I set about connecting up the internal network and configuring OpenELEC to stream music from my laptop so at least I have some background entertainment (we have no telly or broadband yet, only a USB dongle from Sky to use until broadband gets installed, hopefully tomorrow).
I've also found a program that runs on Windows and can stream Netflix to XMBC, just have to wait for the MPEG2 licence to come through to test it.
