Raspberry pi introduces the Raspberry Pi Zero W - W for wireless for $10 instead of the current zero for $5USD.

The RPI 0 now includes wireless 802.11n and bluetooth 4. Excellent move. The W also retains the camera port.

Update 3/4/2017:

I picked one up at Micro Center tonight. It was in stock just a few hours ago. They had many bins full. Looks like at least a few thousand. Its selling at $10 for one. $15 for 2 or more and $20 for 6 or more. So instead of being cheaper in quantity, you are penalized for buying more.

Here's how the antenna works:

Open source web browser for android smartphone: GNU IceWeasel/GNU IceCat/GNUzilla

This link:


redirects to this:


I've tested this on android 5. This crashed upon opening on android 6.

GNUzilla/Icecat/Iceweasel needs to be manually downloaded from gnu.org or its many mirrors. You can download it directly on your phone. And then run the .apk file. On the ftp server or website (mirrors), find the gnuzilla folder. Open the latest version. The .apk may not be there. So try one version down. Repeat until you find it. I found it a few version down.

It's one of the very few (four) android web browsers that don't track you down and send your usage information back to their spy centers.

Now if you really want to give all those spyware web browsers the finger, download orfox and orbot. That's the tor browser.

$5 USD Raspberry Pi Zero First Release

I just tried out the new Raspberry Pi Zero. Its 1/3 the size of the original Raspberry Pi.

It plugs into you monitor via a mini HDMI cable.

There's a micro USB port for USB devices, but you need a OTG cable. The other micro USB port is for power.

Taliban commander turns self in... for reward on ‘Wanted’ poster

Mohammad Ashan, a mid-level Taliban commander in Paktika province, strolled toward a police checkpoint in the district of Sar Howza with a wanted poster bearing his own face. He demanded the finder’s fee referenced on the poster: $100.

Afghan officials, perplexed by the man’s misguided motives, arrested him on the spot. Ashan is suspected of plotting at least two attacks on Afghan security forces. His misdeeds prompted officials to plaster the district with hundreds of so-called “Be on the Lookout” posters emblazoned with his name and likeness.

“We asked him, ‘Is this you?’ Mohammad Ashan answered with an incredible amount of enthusiasm, ‘Yes, yes, that’s me! Can I get my award now?’” recalled SPC Matthew Baker.

A biometric scan confirmed that the man in Afghan custody was the insurgent they had been looking for.
