Post 2084 Getting the PI Out of my Face and doing something with it
















This is your Basic MoBo (motherboard), today...

Something close to the Do It Yourself Basics

I used to do a few Years ago.



I've fallen behind the Times it seems.




 
This is the latest Raspberry Pi 3 Model B...

This new model is faster and is on a 64-bit cpu.
It comes with built in WiFi and the boot chip is 
a micro USB.  Like the ones you can put
in some Samsung phones... 




The 'older one, whic I also own, looks like this:

The plastic pre-fab case was extra but it fit perfectly.

I need on for the new RP 3 because it runs a little
hotter than this slower original Raspberry.

The bigger SD chip is where you load the OS.
Most often that is a flavor of Linux.

You  Tube has an outrageous number of  Raspbery PI
Videos on how to do Just About Everything..


More to come...

Post 2082 Running into an old Friend LINUX (in windows)



The Biggest Buzz about Windows these days is it's sudden 180 about "LINUX".

Recent developments in Windows has found a very friendly attitude for the previously maligned Unix like OS.

But times hve changed and the new regime is suddenly Ga-Ga over "LINUX".



Canonical: give Windows 10 the shove and embrace Ubuntu

MC2BackUp Post 2080 Is AMD Back in the Game with New Graphics Card?







From:  http://www.pcper.com


The AMD Radeon RX 480 Review - The Polaris Promise


Polaris 10 Specifications

It would be hard at this point to NOT know about the Radeon RX 480 graphics card. AMD and the Radeon Technologies Group has been talking publicly about the Polaris architecture since December of 2015 with lofty ambitions. In the precarious position that the company rests, being well behind in market share and struggling to compete with the dominant player in the market (NVIDIA), the team was willing to sacrifice sales of current generation parts (300-series) in order to excite the user base for the upcoming move to Polaris. It is a risky bet and one that will play out over the next few months in the market.

MC2 Post 2076 The Lenovo’s new Tango phone








The PHAB2 Pro is the new flagship phone from Lenovo. Powered by Google’s

Project Tango, the Pro features a set of sensors and software that allows it to

sense and map its surroundings, enabling augmented reality (AR) experiences

that wouldn’t be possible on other phones.

Along with being the world’s first Tango phone, the PHAB2 Pro is also a

competent Android 6.0 flagship. The Pro features a 6.4-inch Quad HD display,

Qualcomm Snapdragon 652 processor, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of internal storage,

4050 mAh battery, 16 MP rear camera and 8 MP front camera.

If you want a massive Lenovo phone that isn’t Tango-enabled, the more

affordable PHAB2 and PHAB2 Plus devices might be worth a look.

=========================================
=========================================



=========================================
=========================================



From:   http://bgr.com



The PHAB2 features a 6.4-inch 720p HD display, 


MediaTek 8735 quad-core processor, 

3GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage, 


4050 mAh battery, 13 MP rear

camera and 5 MP front camera.



The PHAB2 Plus comes with many of the same specifications (save for its

upgraded 1080p display and octa-core processor), but the selling point for the

Plus is its 13 MP dual rear camera with additional professional features.

Lenovo’s PHAB2 will retail for $199, the PHAB2 Plus will cost $299 and the

Tango-enabled PHAB2 Pro will be available at $499. All three phones will launch

globally this September, with a US launch planned before the end of the year.
