You know, normally they completely destroy remakes but that one looks pretty good. Also, neat about the RPIs in th flicks

I only saw a bit of a trailer but it does look good. An I agree with you about the re-makes in general. B)

Hmm MR Robot I'll have to look into that, seems I have missed a whole lot of good viewing lately. :breakfast:

Oh you will love Mr. Robot as the computer stuff is actually factual instead of the crazy crap most tv shows show. He uses Linux and you'll catch little commands and stuff here and there that you recognize.

Yes and no. Most people would not think twice about absurdity but as a computer geek, we tend to notice such things as these. It's like if you were an architect and seen some neat looking structures on as how. As an architect, you would look for things like this and the same applies for use computer geeks.

Yeah I did the same thing when watching martial arts movies. Got so involved in the techniques used I used to forget about the plot.Mind you martial arts movies all have almost the same plot. We even went as far as buying a special video recorder that allowed us to playback in crystal clear detail frame by frame.


Looks like Mr Robot is getting quite a lot of media coverage. Most of the article I read mention the Pi in some way or another. This one has quite an interesting slant on the PI.

For those of you who, like me, had to disagree when Darlene said, “We all know what a raspberry Pi is,” here’s your answer: it’s a “low cost, credit-card sized computer that plugs into a computer monitor or TV, and uses a standard keyboard and mouse.” Common in Europe and Asia, they can do most everything a standard desktop computer can do; but, you know, Apple doesn’t want us buying those, so we remain in the dark, here in the U.S.

21 Inc. has launched a Linux and Raspberry Pi based mini-PC with native support for the Bitcoin currency protocol, enabling a Bitcoin micropayments server.

Since its debut in 2009, the peer-to-peer, open source Bitcoin crypto-currency protocol has continued to gain traction, especially for global transactions, legal and otherwise. Now, Andreessen Horowitz backed startup 21 Inc. has unveiled what it calls the world’s first computer with native hardware and software support for the Bitcoin protocol. The developer-oriented 21 Bitcoin Computer, which is intended primarily as a micropayments platform, is now on pre-sale for $400, with shipments due in November.

Actually quite a few people have made lots of money from Bitcoin. Some legal, some not. Heck Adam makes pretty good money mining bitcoins.

Doctor Who K-9 Robot Is Powered by Raspberry Pi and Talks Back

Quote

There is also a LEGO K-9 case for Raspberry Pi, a Raspberry Pi-controlled Dalek, and even a small Tardis that flies high in the atmosphere. It looks like the usage possibilities of the Raspberry Pi are still expanding.

Well they would wouldn't they as the Pi is powered by the same tech as the Tardis. :Laughing:
