From time to time friends ask me help for their computers.

One such recently asked help for her laptop.  It appeared her ex had set a password in the BIOS, no biggie however he had disabled the built in Wifi!

So I set about call the manufacturers help line; after about 10 minutes going through the phone menus, I had a technician on the line.

He told me to try and enter a wrong password and after a while the system would give and error code.  So I typed at random and pressed enter, during this I asked how many times, no answer, so I guessed he did not know... after the sixth and seventh attempt, still not blocked so I said okay leave it I will try to look myself.

I read an article about using the RPI as a surveillance camera and about putting one inside a dummy camera, so I had a go at trying it out with the latest Pi Zero (v1.3) ie the one with the CSI connector.

First things first, the Pi zero v1.3 has a smaller CSI camera connection that is used with the Compute module Pi.

If you already have a Raspberry Pi and your looking for a audio/music center project then checkout moOde audio player

You've already got a Raspberry PI 3 then checkout the test version 2.6 TR3 under 'Test Code'.

I'll be writing up my own guide soon with a Raspberry PI 3 and the Official 7" Touch screen.

The credit-card single board computer (SBC) launched in in the UK by a charity the Raspberry Pi Foundation available from April - June 2012 - Raspberry Pi Model B costing only £22 / $35 was available to buy online from various suppliers.

Since then, a revised version was released October 2012 with more on-board (512MB vs. 256MB) memory SDRAM.

The smaller sister version without onboard ethernet the Model A was launched February 2013.  

Then in the summer of 2014 (July) the Raspberry Pi Model B+ came out with extra USB ports (4 in total), followed by the Raspberry Pi Compute Module in April 2014 and then the Raspberry Pi Model A+ in November 2014,

In February 2015 the Raspberry Pi 2 Model B a faster cpu (900Mhz) and bumped up the onboard memory to 1GB of SDRAM still for only £22/$35.

In February 2016 the Raspberry Pi 3 Model B a faster cpu (1.2Ghz) and for the first time included built)in Wifi (802.11n) and Bluetooth 4.1
