Raspberry Pi 4 launched

A few months after Pi Day, and a few days before 2Pi Day!1 A new version of the Raspberry Pi has been announced, at the customary price point of US$35 – which has been translated to a very similar value in pounds sterling, with both Pimoroni and The Pi Hut selling it for £34.00.

Biggest sale ever – a (now belated) Christmas story

The PiCano case for the Raspberry Pi has always been sold in small numbers. Most of the time orders of a single case, sometimes two or three in one order.

News nybble: Raspberry Pi 3B+ launched

Yesterday was Pi Day, a name reflecting that if you write your dates in either Overpuddlian form (mm-dd-yyyy) or as specified by ISO 8601 (yyyy-mm-dd) – in both cases ignoring the year – you get 3-14, which sort of looks like Pi to two decimal places if you squint a bit so that the dash […]
