Yes this is a cleaning up of the circuit board, less heat produced, some faster CPU, faster broadband and networking basically - but at the same price.  I paid only £32.

I was just talking to somebody that was saying, what?  A £32 pound computer is running (a free version) of AGK at the same speed as my £2000 computer?  Sometimes you need to get some perspective!  Yes the pi3 B+ is underpowered - but it is extremely efficient, small and requires very low power to run (you can run it off a battery pack or one of those mobile phone power banks).

It lets you build "console" apps for the Pi. Well, that's exciting!

For those that don't know, today is also Einstein's birthday.

Pi Day, Einstein's Birthday, and Stephen Hawking's death are all on the same date now. Very interesting day this is.

As for the Rasp Pi stuff, I didn't know there was a newer model. Think I'll upgrade from the one I have since I use it as a plex server and I need that processing power.

Wow, that is spooky, but I guess, 365 days in a year. There's a fairly decent chance someone is born or not born on a famous day.

Two of my friends were born on September 11th, another on Christmas day and one girl I used to know was born in a leap year on Feb 29th, and had to celebrate her birthday on the 28th for years where there was no 29th.

Weird how life turns out that way sometimes.

All I knew as a child is that it's best to be born somewhere around June or July so you can presents on your birthday and Christmas every six months. When your birthday is too near to Christmas, there's a looong time where you had to wait for presents. LOL  :P

Not so spooky, just billions of people over thousands of years.  This site https://www.onthisday.com/ has a bunch of famous events, births, deaths, etc... on any day.
