LEGO Mindstorms EV3 31313 Remote Controlled Robots by LEGO Canada Inc

I wonder why Lego gives the software for EV3 for free in the home version (this product) as a download, but charges schools for the educational version of the software? The educational version lets one do extra things like data logging which would be a great extension for everyone. EV3 takes quite a bit longer to load than NXT 2 because the brick is running a version of Linux. This should mean that the possibilities for non-Lego program (using C for example) should be readily available. I also had to do a bit of searching in order to find the sample starter robots and code - the website could really make this more obvious. There are also a selection of user contributed robot designs… Read more
The First 40 Years ~ Murray Perahia

It seems to me that of the remaining big classical labels, Sony/BMG, Warner/EMI and Universal, Sony/BMG offers the greatest bang for the buck.

The insights Perahia shares with Sir Denis Forman are very interesting indeed. I ended my first day with this set by listening to Chopin's B minor piano… Read more
CanaKit Raspberry Pi - Model B (512 MB / Revision &hellip by CanaKit
When I bought this, it was the best deal available on (a lot less than the Raspberry Pi's I bought last year that were not in a kit). I have run this kit with Google Coder without issue on a wireless network. Don't expect blazing speed if you use the Raspberry Pi as a computer. It's easy to get up and running using the internet - but do note that you won't be able to use a lot of multimedia sites that use Flash etc. I would not program with Scratch 1.4 anymore now that Scratch 2.0 is available (this WON'T run on the Raspberry Pi as it uses Adobe Air). Get the kit that has the extra breadboard and ribbon cable ($10 more). It also comes with LEDs and resistors which allow you… Read more
