Raspberry Pi 4 finally gets an official case fan

The Raspberry Pi 4 is arguably the most powerful iteration of the popular single-board computer or SBC. The Raspberry Pi Foundation definitely turned it up to 11 with the memory options, ports, and processor, making the tiny computer a more viable desktop alternative. Unlike more established desktops, however, the RPi 4 might have some problem keeping its cool under prolonged heavy loads. For that purpose, the RPi Foundation has, at long last, launched an official fan that easily integrates into the official case for the Raspberry Pi 4.

Raspberry Pi Compute Module 4 comes in a more compact form

The Raspberry Pi single-board computers or SBCs have long been the darling of makers and tinkerers because of their size and their price. The RPis, however, have also served as the foundation of more formal products that take advantage of the platform more than just the package. For these types of uses, The Raspberry Pi Foundations has provided smaller but also less featured Compute Modules and the latest version based on the RPi 4 shrinks that size down even further with one important consequence.

CutiePi is an open source and portable Raspberry Pi tablet

CutiePi is an open source and portable Raspberry Pi tablet

The Raspberry Pi opened up a whole new world of DIY projects but it has ironically been more difficult to actually produce a "normal" RPi-powered computer that doesn't look like a Frankensteined contraption. There are, of course, some kits that let you easily assemble a Raspberry Pi desktop, laptop, or even tablet, but those look more like things you'd rather leave at home than be caught dead using it outside. It's for that exact use case that CutiePi was born and now the ready-to-use RPi Tablet has launched on Kickstarter to bring all that to everyone willing to take the risk.

Raspberry Pi 4 2GB RAM now costs as much as 1GB version

The Raspberry Pi is one of those small yet brilliant ideas that changed the world. Thanks to its low footprint, its small size, and especially its affordable price, the RPi gave birth not just to a new market but also to a new maker culture. Times have changed, however, and so have the price of components, which is why the RPi Foundation is making a welcome but somewhat odd price cut in time for its eighth birthday.

Raspberry Pi 4 will probably need a fan no matter what

Raspberry Pi 4 will probably need a fan no matter what

The Raspberry Pi 4 makes giant leaps that almost make it a usable ARM-based desktop single-board computer, at least on paper. In practice, however, those may have been leaps of faith that the RPi Foundation is also asking new owners to make. With great power comes great responsibility, as the cliche goes, but in the Raspberry Pi 4's case, that comes with not so small sacrifices instead, including one that could prove to be dangerous for users.

Raspberry Pi 4 won’t work with some USB-C power cables

There was a great deal of rejoicing in the tech industry when USB-C got approved and even more hurrahs when Apple became its unexpected champion.

They became the target of an Internet shame campaign to raise awareness of non-compliant implementations. The latest to join that list is, surprisingly, the Raspberry Pi 4, the new darling of the maker and hacker world.

Raspberry Pi 4 launches with more modern capabilities and features

Raspberry Pi 4 launches with more modern capabilities and features

The Raspberry Pi single board computer or SBC was originally designed to be used in education. That purpose formed its features and, most importantly, its price. Seven years later, however, the Raspberry Pi has grown to become one of the most popular and most loved computer by educators, hackers, and makers but it has more or less retained its relatively modest capabilities. The new Raspberry Pi 4 breaks away from the tradition by making a huge jump in hardware but miraculously still manages to keep its base price tag the same since 2012.
