Re: Pi Getting Hot???

I got this email and thought it was a load of BS.
They don't seem to be as good value as ModMyPi and Pi Supply.

Re: Algoid on Raspberry

Looks nice. I had a little go at the web demo, IDE looks nice.

I|f you want some publicity, put it on the Pi Store, as people are likely to notice it there.

Re: Some feedback for a revision 3 board

I would love a metal SD card holder!

I mainly created this thread to see what people's thoughts were on a new revision of a Pi, and it's sparked some interesting conversation.

Some feedback for a revision 3 board

If the foundation are going to make a revision, here are some much needed features that could be implemented. These are not stupid ideas that the foundation wouldn't do (such as a processor that is 4x faster) because they are too expensive. Ditch the MicroUSB power connector and replace with a barre...

Re: GPS Tracker for dogs

You can get a GPS tracker from Adafruit, and also Sparkfun have a nice selection, however these are US companies, so it would be better to order through one of their distributors, Proto-Pic, SK Pang, Oomlout. Personally, I wouldn't use a Raspberry Pi for this situation though. This is because not on...

Re: Why port android. Why not port the apps?

The tool actually decompiles to source code rather than an executable jar file. Android apps dont use the standard java libraries. You would have to port the android libs to run on the JVM instead of dalvik. It may well be possible to port dalvik to the pi instead of the entire android ecosystem bu...

I have an ultrasonic sensor and PIR sensor hooked up to my Pi. Raspberry Pi Spy is a great website and has tutorials on both. But I think you might benefit better with a PIR sensor, as it is designed to detect movement, whereas the ultrasonic sensor is designed to detect distance. Both would work, b...

This then allowed me to update the python code so I can use a single joystick to drive the BigTrak, instead of using one per track like I have been doing.
