That official display is pretty handy to tote around. Too bad some applications just cannot adjust to small resolution display. For example, printer selection screen. Considering there's only one printer, that's a big waste screen real estate, so much that the PRINT button is pushed down beyond the screen and totally inaccessible! Can't print.

So, is there any plan for better resolution display in the future or patching the software so they work with small display?

+Lukas Kallies Maybe the answer is correct resizing/moving the window. Is there any keyboard shortcut for that? There's easily room for 5 printers. Scrolling should always be an option.

For Pi zero users who maybe don't know/or don't read Magpi,Pi Zero has RCA out put .

Did you know that the Pi Zero has a composite video out port which is very easy to access? If you’d like to connect your Zero to an old TV, read on and we’ll show you how…

I am looking for recommendation for ready to use casing
I have data logger (Raspberry or Zero) with Arduino (Nano or Uno)
I will have four sensors
1. dht22 for temeprature and humidity
2. photocell for light
3. voltmeter (which I use for solar panel) basically two pin connector
I also have 16X2 or 20X4 LCD
The Raspberry uses usb flash memory and wifi stick so USB ports need to be accessible
I am looking for casing
Otherwise will have to build

Bear in mind some plastic box degrade with solar light.

My +Pi Borg ZeroBorg board arrived this morning!

It feels like a good, sturdy board and my PiZero (which arrived yesterday) fits very nicely on top of it. Got a few other projects to get out of the way this weekend before I can start playing with it properly, but I'm sure I'll have motors connected up to it soon.

Best go read the instructions before I plug any power into it tho, wouldn't want to damage it or the PiZero when they're both still shiney and new.

Troubleshooting  - 
 
I am trying to make a speaker (using the GPIO pins), and I am giving it instructions using a text file. I made a program that runs the speaker, it runs it fine, and I created a program that converts the sound file to the file the speaker reads. To convert the mp3 (or what ever sound file it is), I need to connect a speaker cable to the pi. How do I connect it? Do I need to use a float? Do I connect it to a different pin?
I am new to the pi, so please explain in a not too complex way. The language I am coding this in Python.

I don't think you'll have the kind of granular control over the speaker jack as you do over the GPIO pins.

Hi Guys!
I have been wondering if there is a way to hide the boot text on a Raspberry Pi (raspbian os) and instead show some kind of a logo ... somewhat like how ubuntu or windows logo kind...aaah i do not intend to use either logos but have something of my own...a static JPG or GIF image....animated image would be cool tho...i have seen some articles which describe a method of having a blank screen but i am looking for a solution which shows an image!

Thanks in advance

Found it !
It is all about the file oemsplash.png.
Create your logo (in png) and name it oemsplash.png.

For more info see for example:

I finally acquired a raspberry pi, drum roll please, 3! And a pi zero!

It looks just like the pi 2 with a few extra components on the board. I can't wait to try it out and such.

And this being my first post in the raspberry pi community, I just want to say:

Hello!

Pictures 1-3:

Just some closeup shots of the rpi 3 model B. I don't have a conventional camera right now. So the only shots I can take will be really small. But I think the detail will make up for that. You get to see all the artistry on the pcb!

Picture 4:

A classic zoom in of the original raspberry pi labeling.

Pictures 5-6:

I already had a case for it. The first picture is of the base attached to the pi. The second is of the case enclosing the pi. It's a clear case so it looks like it's not there.

Pictures 7-8:

Some closeups of my new pi zero! I have no idea what I'm going to do with it just yet! Yeah!

Picture 9:

Just another closeup of the the labeling.

Conclusion:

I can't wait to get the rpi 3 running. I'm still working on ideas for the pi zero. But right now, I'm just happy to call them my own.

Glad to be a maker!

Two years ago, the Raspberry Pi seemed as if it might be eclipsed by a growing number of open-spec single board computer projects with faster processors, Android support, and more extensive features. But then the Raspberry Pi reestablished its lead in two major great leaps forward.

+Kevin96AT​ unfortunately that doesn't matter to the majority of Pi users...

The Pi will always lead for the foreseeable future, as its community is larger than all competitors by several orders of magnitude.

But who knows, maybe they'll work with Broadcom and ditch the binary blobs for the RPi 4!
