Comment Re:Pi lasts over 13 hours for me on battery... (Score 1) 59

As of now, the Pi 3 is running the exact same kernel and binaries as the Pi 2 thanks to the Foundation deciding that 64bit support isn't relevant to their intended uses of the device. Until they or the community figures out a 64bit safe bootloader and ports a kernel, no 64bit love for you. If it'll run on the Pi 3 it'll run on the Pi 2 currently.

(Don't get overly jazzed about the 802.11n support, it's fed by a slightly hotted up serial connection so...)

Analog cellular broadcasts fall under that rule. Now, there are limitations on what you can DO with information gathered from listening to those calls, in short you can't act on it. But that does not mean it's illegal to receive it.

I limit my use of them to very specific, simple scenarios. Two VLANs max, no need for monitoring, etc. If I need more than that I'll move up the food chain to something with proper enterprise functionality.

On the ReadyNAS issues, have you considered blowing away Netgear's firmware and putting vanilla linux on them?
