Two weeks ago my geek instinct told me it was a good idea to buy a Raspberry Pi to play with. After some research I bought it from RS as others French distributors, despite shipping from France, where more expensive. Of course I took a Type B as without the ethernet port it would have been less fun for me, and as my better half would not necessarily love having a small electronic part in our living room, I also bought the white case to make it look less geeky. ;)
Cause yes, my RPI is going to be in my living room. I had to think about what I wanted to do with it after I finally placed my order. So I know it’s not really new but my RPI is going to be a Spotify player and act as a Time Machine on my network, I might also try to connect it to my tv to see how it behave as a MediaPlayer.
Why am I telling you all this ? Cause it should give me some geek material to talk about in here so you should expect some posts about my RPI. I know I’m not really actively posting here and I’m going to try to correct that once again. I’m starting some projects on Android too which may also result as posts (and Google Play available app too I hope ;)).
While waiting for my RPI to come (approx 8 days they said) you may be interested in reading some of my inspirations:
So let’s hope it will ship on time and as soon as I have it I should start playing with it and share some tips in here.
