(image)  You may or may not have scored an SNES Classic from Nintendo, but either way, you don’t have the true retro gaming fan’s SNES reboot – yet. That’s because it’s not out yet, and it’s not even made by Nintendo: It’s the Super Nt, the next reference quality console recreation from Analogue, the same gadget maker that created the Nt Mini to play NES games… Read More

Sun, 15 Oct 2017 15:22:46 +0000

(image)  Earlier this week, it was revealed that independent phone maker OnePlus was collecting all manner of information from phones running its OxygenOS — without telling users, of course. Caught red-handed, the company is backing off from the opt-out data collection program, giving users a choice up front instead of buried in the options. Read More

(image)  U.K. edtech startup pi-top has a new learn-to-code-and-tinker machine. It’s another modular Raspberry Pi-powered laptop but this time they’ve reduced the number of steps needed to put it together, as well as adding a slider keyboard design so the Qwerty panel can be pulled out to provide access to a rail for mounting and tinkering with electronics.

These things happen! Either the company couldn’t be sure it could fix it or it couldn’t be sure people would trust that it did — so they made the choice to… Read More

This pair of Italian artists saw their little single-board computers as a gateway to high-tech art but they’ve essentially created a world in which anyone – from an 11-year-old hacker to a huge corporation – can make amazing hardware in a few hours. The pair recently… Read More

So it’s no surprise that German R&D outfit Fraunhofer has turned its considerable resources towards learning about and conserving every little detail of the instruments for which the likes of Bach and Handel composed their music.
