  3. Meet the Guitar Boy, a working electric guitar and a working oversized Game Boy rolled into one. Created by electronics whizz Fibbef, an admin on BitFixGaming boards, and spotted by Hackaday, the Guitar Boy is running on a Raspberry Pi B+ with RetroPie version 2.3. The a 5-inch LCD display is powered by a 2,200 mAh battery and the guitar is a passive setup, which uses a humbucker pickup. There's a simple audio selector on the side, which chooses whether the sound comes from the guitar or the Game Boy. And for extra bonus points the body has been built to look exactly like a Classic Game Boy from around 1989. You can watch a video of the Guitar Boy in action over on Fibeff's YouTube channelby hitting the link.

  5. The Raspberry Pi 2 Model B is the second generation Raspberry Pi. It replaced the original Raspberry Pi 1 Model B+ in February 2014. Compared to the Raspberry Pi 1 it has: A 900MHz quad-core ARM Cortex-A7 CPU 1GB RAM Like the (Pi 1) Model B+, it also has: 4 USB ports 40 GPIO pins Full HDMI port Ethernet port Combined 3.5mm audio jack and composite video Camera interface (CSI) Display interface (DSI) Micro SD card slot VideoCore IV 3D graphics core Because it has an ARMv7 processor, it can run the full range of ARM GNU/Linux distributions, including Snappy Ubuntu Core, as well as Microsoft Windows 10 (see the blog for more information). The Raspberry Pi 2 has an identical form factor to the previous (Pi 1) Model B+ and has complete compatibility with Raspberry Pi 1. We recommend the Raspberry Pi 2 Model B for use in schools: it offers more flexibility for learners than the leaner (Pi 1) Model A+, which is more useful for embedded projects and projects which require very low power. So, anyone here buying one? Source: http://www.raspberrypi.org/products/raspberry-pi-2-model-b/

  7. How to install a Web server

    Hmmm, funnily enough that isn't the first time it's happened, although it hasn't cropped up for quite some time. Yes, it's a Tapatalk issue indeed.
