Re: How come the price hasn't gone down?

I was browsing Zero projects. They look similar to Pi projects. Make sense. Size-wise, interesting but still looks clunky with the extras. What would really be interesting is if the future, with the size angle in mind... What else is already smaller and already more powerful? Phones. Add in the comp...

Re: How come the price hasn't gone down?

Thanks. I'm looking around on here for a Zero board, if there is one. I'm curious what people are doing with Zeros. That's getting small enough to be wearable.

Re: How come the price hasn't gone down?

I'm taking Moore's law with a broad, lazy view. In the future, technology will be better/faster and cheaper. Plus I've heard it's the end of Moore's law a lot and then they come up with some new angle on things to work around the apparent deadend. Although I know they ran into the issue of not being...

Re: How to determine my Pi model from the OS?

Thanks. I had terminal open. I was thinking it was the easiest/laziest way to find the info, along with using some commands I probably haven't used before.

How come the price hasn't gone down?

I got one in early 2013. $35. (Actually $49 with England's VAT tax, and then more like $120 overall to get the case, cables, etc., everything except for a mouse, keyboard, and monitor.) $35 in 2013. It's almost 2018 now. It looks like they're still $35. What about Moore's Law? I'd almost be thinking...

How to determine my Pi model from the OS?

Is there a way I can find out exactly what hardware I'm running on? I've got a pi.... probably from 2013, I'd have to check.... and I think it was the second generation of pi out by then... Is there a quick terminal command I can run to find that out?

Sccchweet. It worked. Both machines were powered on by the pi while I was away. Project complete. Went from Wheezy to Sketch on my pi (from 2013 I think, whenever it's listed on this forum). I still have the first SD card on it with Wheezy, although I don't really have a use for that now, assuming t...

Re: Upgrading my Pi from Wheezy to Stretch

I thought about wake on lan for the pi itself, being able to wake the pi, but most likely it's either already on or I'm physically by the box to power it on. The Raspberry Pi has no BIOS and the USB to Ethernet Port has no WoL enabled. Therefore WoL a RPi is not feasible.....many discussions previo...
