It's once again Friday, and you know what that means - new stuff! And, on this particular Friday in Calgary "Cowboyland" Alberta, it's the start of the 100th Calgary Stampede. This is a pretty big deal, or so we hear, judging from the rampant "yee-haws" that are shouted into the July air with surprising frequency and enthusiasm. And that statement is not, in fact, a work of fiction.

Nonetheless, we press on with our duties to present you the latest stock that we've brought in. Chekkit oot:

2.8" TFT Touchscreen 2.8" TFT Touchscreen
$40.00
Add some jazz & pizazz to your project with a colour touchscreen LCD. As a bonus, this display has a resistive touchscreen attached to it already, so you can detect finger presses anywhere on the screen! Interface this LCD to just about any microcontroller with 12 I/O available.
2.8" TFT Touchscreen Shield 2.8" TFT Touchscreen Shield
$59.00
Spice up your Arduino project with a beautiful large touchscreen display shield with built in microSD card connection. As a bonus, this display has a resistive touchscreen attached to it, so you can detect finger presses anywhere on the screen!
Polymer Lithium Ion Battery - 500mAh 7.4v Polymer Lithium Ion Battery - 500mAh 7.4v
$4.95
This LiPo is a hardy little battery pack. Kingmax managed to pack a constant discharge rate of 25C into this battery. This is an excellent choice for small projects that don't need a lot of voltage but need a burst of current.
Polymer Lithium Ion Battery - 1000mAh 7.4v Polymer Lithium Ion Battery - 1000mAh 7.4v
$6.95
This high discharge LiPo is a great way to power any R/C, robotic, or portable project. This is an excellent choice for anything that requires a small battery with a lot of punch.
USB to Micro USB cable USB to Micro USB cable
$4.95
So the trend seems to be going the way of the USB-micro connector these days. Use this cable to interface to products such as the Arduino Leonardo, Netduino & Raspberry Pi boards, as well as many common cell phones.
USB A-A extension 6 Feet USB A-A extension (6 Feet)
$3.95
Need your USB cable to go that last few feet, this 6 foot extension cable lets you expand the reach of your USB devices!

If you're in/around Calgary and don't even own a cowboy hat, it's still quite easy to get into the spirit this wonderful cowboy-a-thon. Two words: Stampede breakfast(s). Awwwww yeah. Er, I mean 'yee-haw'. Yeah, that's better.
