The ‘Official’ OS for the RPi was updated yesterday, and with it came a nice few details about the particular Fedora ARM distro, and a few added extras. I’ll hand over to the official RPi developers themselves, as they say it best, but needless to say we’re excited about getting our hands on a RPi as soon as we can to try this out.

What is the Raspberry Pi Fedora Remix?

Raspberry Pi Faces More Delays

by Matthew on March 9, 2012

A few days ago we wrote about the Raspberry Pi and mentioned how quick the first batch of 10,000 units sold out. For those on the waiting list the expected delivery date was sometime in April although that might be changing soon as there have been a few problems with the manufacturing process on the first batch.

The problem is related to the Ethernet jack being the wrong type. The type that should be used has magnets inside. The actual part used did not have magnets and the company behind the RPi has requested that all Ethernet ports are removed from the batch and new ones re-soldered on to the board.

The new iPad Announced

by Matthew on March 8, 2012

Apple has announced the new iPad. The new model is simply referred to as the “iPad” and drops the numbering off the end so it falls more in line with the Apple TV, iPod touch and iPod nano. We suspect that there will be no iPhone 5, but instead it will be simply the new iPhone or just iPhone for short. This move is likely related to the confusion of the iOS numbering and device generation numbering and all the speculation that falls around it each year. By simply calling it the iPad or the new iPad, we always know it’s the latest. When a new iPad gets launched the older model will be simply the 3rd generation iPad. When iOS 6 launches on the iPhone 5 it all gets a bit complicated… some what.

On to the new iPad and what is new with it. As expected, it has a Retina display. It also has a 5 megapixel camera, 4G, an A5X processor and dictation to name a few things.

Apple Increases OTA Downloads to 50MB

by Matthew on March 8, 2012

Apple has increased the size of OTA downloads over 3G/4G on the iPhone and iPad. The old limit was 20MB which has now been increased to 50MB.

The reason that we mention this relatively boring bit of news is because the iPad with a Retina Display launched yesterday which means that updated Retina apps that were just under the 20MB limit for OTA downloads will now be pushed clearly over that limit and would have forced users to download over WiFi. This is not the case now as 50MB is the new app size limit for downloading OTA.

Ragdoll Blaster 3 – Review

by Paul on March 6, 2012

So then, I’m a huge fan of the previous two Ragdoll Blaster games, and the third offering was released at the back end of February. Developed and published by Backflip Studios, the aim of the games is simple; fire a ragdoll from a canon and try to hit a target to move onto the next level. Of course the game has increasing complexity and entertainment as you progress through the levels.
