How do you deal with balancing the limited storage of Arduino with the decrease in speed if you just print everything as it gets measured?

I am working on a simple data acquisition system based on an Arduino Uno. Each run would ideally collect up to 10k data points (all doubles). Obviously, the Arduino doesn't have the capacity to hold ...

Why can't an Arduino/ATmega328 act as an SPI slave at anywhere approaching the maximum speed claimed in the datasheet?

The ATmega328 datasheet claims a maximum SPI slave speed of Fosc/4. For a chip clocked at 20MHz, that would be 5Mbps. However, my tests show that even with no processing whatsoever in the interrupt (...
