• Microsoft Store offering up to 31.4 percent off PCs, Windows Mixed Reality for Pi Day

    6 monthes ago - By MobileSyrup

    Today is Pi Day, the annual celebration of the mathematical consonant beginning with 3.14. While pizza joints are typically the only places to offer related sales on March 14th, Microsoft now wants to get a piece of the Pi as well. Starting today, Canadians will, fittingly enough, be able to save 31.4 percent on select PCs, Windows Mixed Reality headsets and Surface covers. Notably, although Pi Day falls on March 14th, Microsoft's Pi-themed sales will last beyond that date. Those interested in virtual reality can snag the Lenovo Explorer Windows Mixed Reality headset for $376.61 CAD or the...

    You don't have to actually care about Pi Day to get 31.4% off a new laptop

    6 monthes ago - By TheBoyGeniusReport

    In case you haven't already been accosted by your friendly neighborhood mathlete, it's Pi day today. Microsoft is celebrating the semi-momentous day with its usual Pi Day sale, which takes 31.4% off Windows Mixed Reality headsets, along with a bunch of laptops from Dell, Alienware, HP, and Lenovo.
    The sale is only applied on the Microsoft Store, where products are normally listed at full price. You can find some of these laptops for a little less than the stated RRP elsewhere, making this deal a little less appealing, but the savings on some of the newer models are still substantial.

    New flavor of Raspberry Pi 3 comes with a juiced-up CPU and speedier Wi-Fi

    6 monthes ago - By TechRadar

    A new version of the Raspberry Pi 3 has been unleashed, with a faster processor and notable improvements on the connectivity front. The Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+ is on sale now, and maintains the same price point at $35. It's powered by a quad-core ARM Cortex-A53 processor which runs at 1.4GHz (compared to 1.2GHz for the Raspberry Pi 3's CPU). The beefier processor benefits from power-related optimizations and a new heat spreader, which allowed for the higher clock speed to be reached. The other main boons come on the networking front, with a Cypress CYW43455 chip providing dual-band...

  • How to build something ‘useful' with a Raspberry Pi

    How to build something ‘useful' with a Raspberry Pi

    6 monthes ago - By The Verge

    In honor of Pi Day , Chaim Gartenberg and I cooked up a tiny little Raspberry Pi project for yesterday's episode of Circuit Breaker Live .
    We started with a simple concept: a button that says “Why?” when you press it, in honor of our favorite podcast. So we knew we'd need a button, some sound files, a little bit of Python code, and, of course, a Raspberry Pi.
    A new Pi is $35 , but we found an old Raspberry Pi 2 in my desk drawer, which was up to the task. (Newer Pis have built-in Wi-Fi and faster processors, but for our simple button project we didn't need internet or extra...
