News this week on the Pi World

Banana Pi

This is NOT a Raspberry Pi

This week we have as usual new and good projects to keep an eye. Want to know more?


  • Mosquitto message system: I had read about this project, but not sure what it was. It is a system to transport messages with the MQTT protocol. Devices can "talk" with a variety architecture. Imagine a sensor sending messages to a mobile or an Arduino. | jpmens.net
  • Banana Pi, Raspberry Pi clone with steroids: Pow! Right in the kisser. This is a new competitor you have to look twice to avoid confusion with the Pi. Bring a 1GHz Allwinner A20 dual-core ARM Cortex-A7 con 1 GB de RAM for about $55. Details in geeky-gadgets.com. You can buy it on their website bananapi.org or aliexpress.com although careful you do not go to brew a Raspberry Pi.

  • piCore 5.3alpha2: This distro advancing with leaps and bounds and brings kernel 3.14.1, Raspberry Pi firmware (14 April, 2014), BusyBox patches applied, improved tce-load. | tinycorelinux.net

  • Raspberry Pi on tutplus: I wanted to finish recommending the website computers.tutsplus.com with good tutorials about Raspberry Pi.

Nothing more people. Until next time!
