    Are there any US retailers or chain stores that sell a female micro usb to female usb adapter? I ordered the wrong stuff from China. I did order the correct but will add to the delay.
    I am going to mount my Raspberry Pi to a Motorola Atrix Lapdock. I got the lapdock and it should work if I keep the connections straight.

    I'm sure there is. Look on Amazon or newegg.com
    Lots of adapters on both sites.

    I looked at amazon and newegg. They all seem to come from China. Which is were I ordered from anyway. Plus it is hard to find consistent search terms. I can hardly wait to get all my stuff so I can play with my toy.

    connections could look better. I am using it is post.

    Raspbian on the Pi. The stick computers seem to all have Android though linux can be installed on a lot of them. I recall Ubuntu on one.
