The popularity of Raspberry PI board has not gone un-noticed by big boys like Intel and Microsoft. The two companies are joining hand with a hardware manufacturer CircuitCo, the maker of BeagleBone Black and MinnowBoard; in creating a low-cost SoC development board called Sharks Cove.
The Raspberry Pi Model B is getting another facelift and no, this isn't a Raspberry Pi 2, and all that is implied by that major name change. Instead, the B+, as the name would suggest, is a very incremental improvement over the existing Model B, giving makers and hackers more connectivity options but retaining the same core and keeping compatiblity with the existing software and peripherals.
Old Gameboys are available aplenty on eBay, Craigslist, and maybe that old box in your mom's garage, but for some people, there's something special about a device crafted with one's own hands. If you fall into that category (and often wax poetic about your ol' Gameboy), Adafruit has introduced a project right up your alley.
Raspberry Pi has sold its three millionth unit, a little over two years after the low-cost educational computer now beloved by developers went on sale. The $35 Raspberry Pi Model B astonished when it was first announced, a full computer - albeit a relatively low-power one - that could be used for quickly prototyping projects as well as exploring programing, but has gone on to ignite a market of low-cost hobby boards.
The Raspberry Pi developer board has turned out to be a very popular device for DIY users. The Pi can be used for just about any project that the user can think up. Element 14 has announced that it has a new accessory for the Raspberry Pi available in the form of a new Wolfson audio card.
Raspberry Pi has claimed itself an early birthday present today (technically it was launched on the 29th, but there's no such day this year), praising a newly announced move by Broadcom after hearing the long-lamented plight of developers: it has released the full source for its VideoCore IV graphics, opening it up to bug fixes and more. In light of this, Raspberry Pi is offering hefty monetary bounty in a competition.
