The Raspberry Pi has already been used for insanely many tings, some which are quite cool and useful, but this is probably what is going to kick it up another notch. Well worth checking out the fine details and start planning!
This looks rally cool. Yeah, sure, you could probably find an app or five that does something similar… ish, on the App Store or Google Play. But this is running on a game console. Which makes it more cool in my little world.
Announcing: A Simple Guide To A Healthy Digital Life
At long last, after much toiling away at late hours of the day, I am proud to announce that I am publishing my first book next week.
This is not the work of fiction I began a long time ago, but rather a brand new beast with a very different intent. After hearing many stories of grief over the years, all related to computers and how they have failed or otherwise managed to make a bad situation worse, I came to the decision of writing a guide to a better digital life.
You shouldn’t have to be a computer expert in order to reap the benefits of computers being ever more intertwined with our daily lives. With this guide, I will go though the key things I think most people might not know, but could benefit a lot from knowing.
On launch there will be four chapters available. The topics of these are security, obtaining software, obtaining hardware, and backing up your information. This is a living book, to steal a term from Patrick Rhone, and it will be updated with more information and good-to-know things as you give me feedback, questions, and suggestions.
The date of launch is set to the 24th of March, and you can already pre-order a copy. You will get a DRM-free version in PDF, ePub, and Kindle (mobi) format, so you should be able to read it on nearly any device out there.
I wouldn’t mind seeing the guys get together and bust some ghosts one last time, but I don’t know anymore. If this turns out to be true and there actually is a Ghostbusters 3 released at some point, I’ll probably check it out, but adjust my expectations accordingly.
Highly interesting concept that looks pretty solid. It’s not perfect as far as wireless charging goes, but it’s a darn nicely designed and thought through product. Definitely worth checking out if you want to upgrade your lightning-port equipped iPhone to wireless charging.
Highly interesting concept and project. I can definitely see this being useful for a number of applications. All I wonder is how good the security is, which is definitely an important aspect of any advanced system like this.
In case you haven’t been checking the right places, you will probably not know that I have been appearing on some of the fine podcasts over on the British Tech Network. No, no, not that show, these are completely different shows.
For your convenience, here is a list of the shows I’ve participated on, in chronological order, starting with the oldest:
Of all the games consoles I never thought I would see any emulator be developed for, the Virtual Boy was pretty much at the top of my list. It was a flop by most measures, and the biggest console failure Nintendo has had so far, and yet someone took the time to port a real, fully functional Game Boy emulator to it. I’m impressed!
In all fairness, this was coming since quite a while back. The 3DS just celebrated its third birthday in Japan, and the WiiU has been on the market for quite a while now. Don’t get me wrong, I would also prefer to have the services around and be able to play online, but time marches on and waits for no one. The Wii and especially the DS has had a good run. Now i just have to figure out a way to share my games I created in WarioWare D.I.Y.
