You’ve got, or at least have on order, your slice of Raspberry Pi and although it’s beautiful it its simplicity, it’s a tad vulnerable in its naked circuit board-form. Thankfully, someone’s thought ahead and is working on a 3D-printable case to protect your Pi.
I spent literally months playing SimCity 2000 as a kid. I never was particularly good at it, but the ability to wield God-like city-building powers was just too irresistible to put down. Arguably the Sim franchise went off-the-boil a tad after SimCity 3000. Thankfully EA’s put Maxis back on the case, and we’re getting the most realistic SimCity yet that’s going back to its roots on the PC.
The poor old Lumia 800 looks like it'll finally be over its launch glitches, thanks to the newest firmware update -- which early installers are reporting to work wonders on the phone's already battered battery.
A worrying new trend over in the US is seeing recruiters start to ask for full access to the social networks of potential applicants, with some organisations asking would-be staff to sign in and let bosses have a good poke around in their non-public posts and messages.
Instead of overage charges, Three will simply halt your data for the month when you hit your limit. Its launching new “essential” data plans that give you 250MB a month and that’s it; there’s absolutely no chance of horrendous out-of-allowance data charges, which is simply great.
We’ve already heard the BBC’s plans for 3D, which include just the opening and closing ceremonies; the men’s 100m final, and a highlights package at the end of each day. But screw 3D; you’ll be able to watch the Olympics in incredible Super Hi-Vision – that’s 16 times the level of detail of HD.
We’ve heard a lot about Pinterest recently; it’s certainly a hot topic around the internets at the moment. Now the Daily Mail’s gotten involved, but has seemingly grabbed the wrong end of the stick, phoning the late Harold Pinter’s widow for a statement on the interesting website supposedly named after him.
We’ve been waiting for the Kindle Fire for what seems like ages now in Britain, all the while our American cousins have been greedily enjoying arguably the best budget Android tablet experience. Now it seems another budget Android sensation in the US, the Barnes & Noble Nook, might beat it here.
NASA might have killed-off the Space Shuttle, but that hasn’t stopped one dedicated Romanian shuttle fanatic from continuing on the journey. The pioneering spacecraft is still flying, just on the miniature scale and made of plastic -- Lego to be precise.
