Fan SHIM for Raspberry Pi

Quote

 

Make your Raspberry Pi 4 seriously cool with Fan SHIM! This 30mm no-solder, controllable CPU fan with RGB LED and tactile switch will give your Raspberry Pi significantly better thermal performance. It's whisper-quiet too!

Fan SHIM uses a friction-fit header, so it just slips onto your Pi's pins and it's ready to go, no soldering required! Note that, due to the height of the fan, if you want to use HATs or pHATs with Fan SHIM, then you'll need to use a booster header.

Very cool. They sure have come a long way. I still have one of the original B models with 256mb ram and now they offer an 8gb model. I still have a couple of 1gb RPi 3s as well (one running Pi-Hole DNS for my network).

They definitely have matured well and could take the place of a lot of other larger computers for most tasks. I've considered one for ages but the only thing I'd use it for would be a media player and my old LG G3 phone does a great job at that. Plus I have 2 desktops, a notebook, and an old EeePC.

The nice thing is that Canonical now supports the Raspberry Pi. They have a 64-bit Focal Fossa server image now and last week they said they will be bringing out soon the Raspberry Pi Desktop edition.

This Anti-Tracking Tool Checks If You’re Being Followed

 

Quote

The Raspberry Pi-powered device can scan for phones around you. If it keeps spotting the same one, it’ll send you an alert.

The anti-tracking tool, which can sit inside a shoebox-sized case, is made up of a few components. A Raspberry Pi 3 runs its software, a Wi-Fi card looks for nearby devices, a small waterproof case protects it, and a portable charger powers the system. A touchscreen shows the alerts the device produces. Each alert may be a sign that you are being tailed.

 

Neat use for a Pi an on the cheap too. 😎
