My Faulty iPhone5s TouchID

failed

I am writing this as an annoyed apple fan, on Monday (30/10/2013) I returned from being in Mexico when the new iPhones were released and after a little jet lag busting sleep, my wife and I headed to the local EE store to buy new iPhones.

The BBC have released an audition script they have been using to find the twelfth doctor. This should be taken as just that, and Steven Moffet has said that it contains no spoilers as naturally it has been written before the new doctor has been cast and the new series has been written. Personally as you would expect I can only hear Matt Smith or David Tennant’s voice when I read this.

Raspberry Pi Portable Media Center Experiment

Not what it looks like

When I took delivery of my Raspberry Pi I knew straight away what my first project would be…..a simple portable all in one media center. My aim was to make a single item that would be battery powered, extremely portable and project movies anywhere I wanted. (I am aware similar functionaluty can be achieved via an SD card in a pico projector but this is a Raspberry Pi project and is much more powerful).
