In this episode we talk about Privacy or lack thereof on our cell phones and other mobile devices. Bad apps that track you. Bad apps that don’t respect you. And of course, how the government can use your cell phone to track you because you can’t turn off location tracking 100% on your phone. Did you know Verizon has a Super Cookie to track you and link to your phone for advertisers?
Editor’s Note: This episode is a fully realized episode about the Raspberry Pi, essentially 98.5% Raspberry Pi, I promise.
Episode 5 Part 2
“I’ll have another Bigger slice of Raspberry Pi”
In this Episode: Our guests, Julie Butler and Carlos Unda talk about a great Raspberry Pi project they did as a POC “Proof of Concept” to solve a problem a company had used much more expensive hardware and software to aolcw. Carlos and Julie (both students at Erskine College) talk about their amazing project to find out if a marble was “transparent” or opaque, basically would the marble pass light or not.
Lessons Learned: Windows IoT (Internet of Things) isn’t ready for prime time. A four node Raspberry Pi cluster is faster computationally than an $800+ Windows PC.
