Raspberry Pi sub-$35 computer hits eBay for over $2,300

Raspberry Pi sub-$35 computer hits eBay for over $2,300

Sales of the Raspberry Pi computer have begun, albeit on a small scale, with ten of the first $35 boards being allotted to eBay where initial bidding has already exceeded £1,500 ($2,325). Powered by an ARM11 700MHz chip capable of running Quake III, general sales will begin in around a month according to the Raspberry Pi foundation, meaning early-adopters are willing to pay a hefty mark-up to grab one of the initial dev units.

Raspberry Pi $25 USD computer coming in January

Raspberry Pi $25 USD computer coming in January

We've spoken about the Raspberry Pi computer a few times before, earlier this year it seeming to get closer and closer to a real release: the time is now essentially set in stone, and the ultra-cheap PC is upon us: $25 for Linux on an ARM processor toting computer with USB, HDMI out, video and audio out, and an SD Card slot, coming this January! Can you imagine such a thing? Its creators have spoken again of this magical device as being available in the first month of 2012 with only tiny software and hardware testing required before that release date - joy!

$25 Raspberry Pi computer runs Quake III

$25 Raspberry Pi computer runs Quake III

When I hear cheap computer I think $300 or so. When talking about the Raspberry Pi computer cheap means REALLY cheap at about $25. That $25 price is obviously the goal of the project that aims at delivering the really cheap computers to the emerging markets. The company producing the little computer has unveiled a prototype and offered up a shot of the machine along with a video of it running a game.

Raspberry Pi $25 USB-Sized Computer Nearly Ready for Public Release

Raspberry Pi $25 USB-Sized Computer Nearly Ready for Public Release

Before we begin speaking about how awesome it is that the Raspberry Pi Alpha version boards are ready for shipping, it would be remiss of us not to explain what Raspberry Pi is in the first place. The Raspberry Pi Foundation is a group which is preparing to release a single-board computer for right around $25 USD (aka approximately £ 15 GBP) meant to stimulate basic computer science in schools around the world. What's happening this weekend is that we're being treated to a video filmed by Eben Upton, Director of the Raspberry Pi Foundation, as he shows of the newly shipped alpha boards for this project.

Wi-Fi proxy could thwart cops, spies from finding you

Wi-Fi proxy could thwart cops, spies from finding you

The almost ridiculous extents which government agencies go through to get otherwise private data is sometimes being matched by equally almost ridiculous extents to protect it. Since Tor and VPNs no longer seem to be enough to protect user privacy, for good or for ill, some have taken seemingly drastic countermeasures. Like this Proxyham for example, which combines a Wi-Fi proxy with the concept of a HAM radio. Not only does it let users anonymously connect to Wi-Fi using almost unidentifiable low frequency radio channels, it also lets them connect from about 2.5 miles away.

Updated Creator CI20: a beefier RPi B+ but MIPS

Updated Creator CI20: a beefier RPi B+ but MIPS

When it comes to hackers and makers, no platform and no development board probably rings louder than ARM and the Raspberry Pi. But they not the only options, not by a long shot. Last year, Imagination Technologies, who makes the PowerVR GPUs among other things, reminded us of that other but less talked about geek darling, the MIPS architecture. It also revealed its own blessed development board, the Creator CI20, which has just been updated to again take on the RPi by taking the fight to the cloud.

Microsoft woos makers: Windows 10 for RPi 2, Arduino

Microsoft woos makers: Windows 10 for RPi 2, Arduino

Following up on what it started last February, Microsoft is pushing through with the thrust to bring Windows 10 to even smaller and less powerful but more general purpose hardware. In short, it is targeting the development and hobby boards that hackers and makers have grown to love. As part of its attempt to remain relevant in the Internet of Things (IoT), it is starting an Insider Preview of what it calls Windows 10 IoT Core. Plus, it has just made sure that at least one edition of the OS is now labeled as "Arduino-certified".

3D printed Apple Pi Mac: DIY creator speaks up

3D printed Apple Pi Mac: DIY creator speaks up

This week we’ve had a tiny chat with the creators of the tiniest Mac ever made. With the power of 3D printing and Raspberry Pi, Adafruit Industries have created a Mac desktop computer that works with a 2.8-inch display - it’s nearly pocketable! It’s relatively easy to make yourself, too!

Google Glass inspired project brings real-time translation

Google Glass inspired project brings real-time translation

This week the inventor known as Will Powell has created a project with heads-up display technology in mind - near real time translation, right up to the mind's eye. If there's one thing Google's Project Glass has done for the world - even though it's not a product many of us can own quite yet - it's to inspire developers and technicians around the world. What Powell has done here is to take several components and combine them to create a pair of glasses that shows what a person has said in text right after they've said it - translated into any language you like.

Pirate Bay Torrent drones could soar over piracy rules

Pirate Bay Torrent drones could soar over piracy rules

High-profile torrent site The Pirate Bay has threatened to take its content to the skies, with the perhaps tongue-in-cheek suggestion of GPS-controlled wireless drones that could automatically host nodes. The site's odd suggestion is using low-power, compact computers like Raspberry Pi, guided by GPS and connected using cheap wireless systems, floated "some kilometers" so that takedowns will need to involve physical destruction by planes.

Windows 10 IoT Core is out, powers air hockey robot

Windows 10 IoT Core is out, powers air hockey robot

Following up on its promise to woo hackers, makers, and tinkerers. Microsoft is making available the first ever general release of the Windows 10 version that works on embedded devices. Dubbed the Internet of Things Core or IoT Core for short, this incarnation of Windows 10 was meant to run on low-powered development boards such as the Raspberry Pi and the MinnowBoard Max. This is potentially the most compact version of Windows to date (excluding the now defunct Windows CE) and helps keep Windows relevant beyond traditional computing devices.

OwnStar gadget hacks GM’s OnStar to unlock, start cars

OwnStar gadget hacks GM’s OnStar to unlock, start cars

As cars get more sophisticated and more connected to the Internet, they also become more vulnerable to malicious attack. That truth has been demonstrated before and will be demonstrated again at the DefCon conference next week. Hacker Samy Kamkar has developed a small box, made from three radios and a Raspberry Pi, which, when within Wi-Fi range, can snoop in on a GM car owner's communication with his GM OnStar, hack into the computer system, and do all sorts of mayhem short of actually driving away with the car.
