Camera ready PiZero at Microcenter

for those lucky enough to live near a Microcenter (in-store only) it looks like the PiZero has landed (at least in NY/NJ stores). it's still one per household

Re: Official Pi Display question

it looks like the official Pi 7" display from the picture/description in which case it will work with a Pi3B. I used the official display on my Pi3B for a few weeks with no problem before I moved it back to a Pi2B

[note I powered the display and Pi separately ]
