Why do I have to unlock my doors through my trunk?

Yup, I'm getting one to drive the tower speakers on my boat so I can have independent volume control over the tower and cockpit speakers.

Hmm, that's an option also.. Hey that Raspberry PI seems to be similar to the Arduino. That's a good idea also.. I know I can pick up the arduino at my local radioshack, not sure about Raspberry.

Same thing. Same stuff. Really, just pick either and go for it.

Honestly, I thought more about doing a tablet. Has the touch screen built in already. Just gotta learn how to develop stuff for it and get that box that Tony linked to. Hopefully that's enough and doesn't need anything else like a driver.

I am usually very weary about 20 dollar items from China.. even though I did buy a short throw shifter for only 40 bucks.. (extensive DIY write -up in the works) I did have to modify it so it worked like a real ST shifter..

The idea I have is for something small (easy to hide/mount) lightweight, non intrusive..etc. I'm going to look further into the Arduino. The Arduino over the raspberry Jist because I can (if needed) get parts locally.

It's really just an amplifier with some knobs on it. $20 makes sense for what amounts to a large capacitor. Even with an arduino/raspberry pi, you'll need some kind of an amp.

With free shipping from China, of course. I think you actually get PAID to ship crap out of China. How else can you buy a 64 gig portable MP3 player for 1 penny with free shipping?
