  2. The first time we played together, it was like seeing a ghost. The second time, it was a little more reserved.

Our road crew and some friends were in the room when we launched into ‘Scentless Apprentice’ for the first time. Their were jaws on the floor.

    In the Iron Man movies, Tony Stark uses a voice-controlled computer assistant called J.A.R.V.I.S. It manages the lights and security system in his home, helps him pilot his Iron Man suits, and even assists with his research. Some of this is…

    Looks like I found yet another use for my Raspberry Pi

It’s a fair­ly hid­den fea­ture that not many peo­ple seem to know about, but the Apple TV has some pret­ty great options for cus­tomiz­ing its screen saver. There are a few default sources of pho­tos you can choose from, includ­ing Nation­al…

  10. Raspberry Pi gets more Arduino-y with new open source modular hardware →

    I’m intrigued though, I think I have to see how people start to use these.
