This is good news for anybody using the Raspberry Pi.

So is it actually possible to power the Sure GPS from the Pi USB
port in practice, as long as the power supply has enough current
for 700mA (the Pi itself)+100mA? Does that really work, has anybody

/ralph -- I've ordered one, based on the many postive
          reviews. It seems a bargain.
