Pi Day In June Edition

Tech News

  • Raspberry Pi 4 is out.  (RaspberryPi.org)

    The CPU has been bumped up to a 1.5GHz quad-core A72, which is not slow.  My Mediapad is a quad A72 at (I think) 2.2GHz, and it zooms through stuff.  It should be at least twice as fast as the current Pi 3B+ which has a quad-core 1.4GHz A53.

    The Pi 4 also has up to 4GB RAM, WiFi 5, Bluetooth 5, full gigabit Ethernet, two USB 3.0 ports, two USB 2.0 ports, and two (micro) HDMI ports.  It can run two 4K monitors at 30Hz, or one a 60Hz and a second screen at 1080p.

    $35 with 1GB, $45 with 2GB, $55 with 4GB.

  • If WiFi isn't doing it for you anymore why not try LiFi.  (The Verge)

    Since it uses visible light, its ability to pass through solid objects is limited, and by limited I mean zero.  Unless they're made of glass.  On the other hand, since it uses visible light there's no RF interference, because it's not RF.

  • Knitting community Ravelry has gone full Oberlin, banning anyone supporting the President of the United States.  (One Angry Gamer)

    Apparently RPG.net did the same thing last year.

    Never go full Oberlin.


Anime Music Video of the Day


I posted this three months ago, but just realised this is the same person who created the Non Non Biyori AMV from Friday.  It's not always about fancy visual effects; sometimes it's just pairing up the song and the video and letting it flow.  Well, and dozens and dozens of beat-perfect cuts.

I've got a little list — I've got a little list
Of society offenders who might well be underground,
And who never would be missed — who never would be missed!

1 Dang.  I just got a 3B a couple months ago.

2 The new Pi is indeed pretty compelling spec-wise. We've been using Asus Tinker Boards to run reverse SSH tunnels from hardware installations at work, though, because we've had too many Pi SD cards die on us.

3 Well, that explains why there have been so many Woot deals on RPi kits recently.

Apple pies are delicious. But never mind apple pies. What colour is a green orange?
