Raspberry Pi – List of Compatible Peripherals

Raspberry Pi in a Pibow CaseToday I ordered a Pibow case from their site. A friend of mine who has several Raspberry Pi machines has decided that he has one extra, so he will sell it to me.

I will need to set up my own bootable SD Card. Here is the list of known good (and known-to-be incompatible) SD Cards, USB Hubs, etc.:

I have a keyboard, mouse and a TV for this. I still need a power supply and perhaps a USB hub I can dedicate to the cause.

I have no idea what the hell I’m going to do with this thing, but I’m still crazy excited. I’m such a nerd.

a brief rant about the Soundcloud community

I have posted numerous original productions to SoundCloud.

The three tracks I presently have on line have been played 325 times, with 8 comments posted. That means less than one in every 40 people will share their opinion with an unsigned, hard-working music creator who offers his music up for nothing.

My latest submission, Andromeda has had 61 plays and has been “favorited” 5 times. That suggests that one in every 12 people listening to the track think it’s interesting enough to put into their favorites. But after about 2 months, it has not received a single comment. Not one bit of constructive or destructive criticism, no hate mail, no attaboys … nothing.

IS THIS THING ON???

I thought the whole point of SoundCloud and its “timed comment” mechanism is to allow producers to receive important feedback about works in progress. It has turned into a YouTube for music, a free music-on-demand service with a particularly great selection of underground beats. The listeners are consumers who expect to get music for free and offer nothing in exchange for the hard, thankless work of underground producers.

An excellent summary of the entire Apple vs. Samsung case, as of this moment.

The Verge has an article, “Apple vs. Samsung: inside a jury’s nightmare. Will nine strangers be able to decide the tech trial of the decade?”

The case has wrapped up, and now the jury must deliberate. On what, exactly? Read up, find out, and form your own opinions about whether this is a tragic case of stolen, priceless intellectual property, or if we should liken Apple and Samsung to a couple of playground bullies trying to lay a beating on the other to get attention and establish dominance.

This is strongly recommended reading if you have any lingering questions about the exact nature of the case. It is impartial, and very well written, in layman’s (but not idiot’s) terms.
