This project barely has anything to do with electronics. They had a box with a small display attached. They stuffed the raspberry pi and cables into the box. I get trying to promote things that are accessible for the less experience, but what in the article would actually help a newbie learn? It is a useless piece of fluff split over a few pages and is only there to garner page views.

There are a lot of indies developing for the 3DS. Bob was an idiot for thinking that working on hacked systems for a few years would somehow get past Nintendo. They have even started to loosen some of the restrictions, such as office security.

Electronics Arts CEO Ousted In Wake of SimCity Launch Disaster 427

mozumder writes "The disastrous launch of SimCity took its first major toll, with EA CEO John Riccitiello being fired from his position and removed from the Board of Directors. It is unknown what effect this may have on the SimCity franchise or any future DRM of EA games, but clearly someone didn't think their cunning plan all the way through when they decided to implement always-on connections for single-player gaming."

Comment Re:Burn in is NOT Ghosting (Score 4, Informative) 195

Ghosting is often used to described the blur caused by pixels slowly transitioning from one state to the next. What is happening here is more along the lines of "image retention" than ghosting. A static charge can "preserve" the state of the pixels in some of the cheaper IPS panels. It isn't permanent like burn in but it is annoying and a much slower transition than the typical ghosting. It is funny that it has taken this long for the issue to gain attention. I'd seen the very same issues with their cinema displays a few years ago. Never understood how artists could swear by Apple if the colors don't transition correctly.
