Raspberry Pi 3 Now Available

Raspberry Pi 3

So I just recently read about the Raspberry Pi 3, so I wasn’t sure when it would actually be available. But the Raspberry Pi Foundation has never been known to drag their feet, so the Raspberry Pi 3 is now available for sale. And as expected (but still surprising in my opinion) the Raspberry Pi 3 is still only $35. When I bought my Raspberry Pi Model B over 2 years ago, I had to check daily because they sold out immediately and even when I ordered one, I had to wait several weeks for it to be in-stock and ship. But even with all the hype and popularity, the Raspberry Pi was still only $35. So fast-forward to today, and what does $35 get you:

  • 1.2GHz 640bit quad-core ARM Cortex-A53 CPU (~10x the performance of the Raspberry Pi 1)
  • Integrated 802.11n wireless LAN and Bluetooth 4.1
  • Broadcom VideoCore IV GPU
  • HDMI
  • 4x USB 2.0
  • microSD slot for storage

Again, that’s a lot to put in something with roughly the foot-print of a deck of cards and all for just $35. I just checked element14 and RS Components – and I think this news is a little too fresh since their partners seem down – at least the ones based in the US. I’ll be checking again later.

Happy Post Valentines Day

I think I’m all out of continues (or there’s no one left to save me), I hope everyone finds their Player 2 and makes it to the final stage.

Update: Sorry, apparently, the video was taken down on Facebook. Had to find another source. Luckily, I found it on YouTube. Enjoy and be prepared to have a sudden urge to play video games while holding someone.

Since this is my first NetFlix post, this is actually a what you should have already watched on NetFlix post. So I’ll give you a couple of things that you should have already watched by now. So if you haven’t, go add them to your list and prepare for a NetFlix binge once you start. These have all been around for a while, so don’t be surprised if you’ve already watched them.

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
Daredevil (not the Ben Affleck movie)
White Collar
House of Cards

I’ll post updates as new things come out and I personally watch them (for the good of the blog post, not because I’m a NetFlix-addict).
