Arduino Due launch brings ARM to the platform

84MHz Cortex-M3 replaces the usual 16MHz ATmega.

Nit-pic:

Is it correct to say "From Arduino" when Arduino is the name of the hardware platform and Arduino Labs is the people behind it?

It's Arduino Labs fault of course for naming themselves and their product line the same, but you wouldn't say the "Diavolino" board was "From Diavolino" you'd say it was from the "Evil Made Scientist" team or something similar.

I know I'm sad, and I know this isn't as bad as someone using LEGOS as a plural of LEGO which we all know is the ultimate wordplay sin in the whole of geekdom.

Nit-pic:

Lego is the company. They make Lego bricks. So calling the bricks either Lego or Legos is incorrect.

Nup. It takes a 5V input from a microUSB port, yes, but the first thing that happens is that 5V input hits a regulator and gets dropped to 3.3V - which is what all the internal logic runs at. If you're using the GPIO port, that's an important fact to know: if you connect 5V to any of the GPIO pins, you'll fry the Pi - it's 3.3V all the way, just like the new Due.
