Few things are better than kicking back on the couch and streaming your favorite album wirelessly to your stereo from your phone. It's a remarkably easy thing to do with AirPlay, but if you don't want to pay for Apple's solutions, a $35 Raspberry Pi does the job remarkably well. Check out the video above for a quick demo of what this project entails, and what you'll get with the final product.

After several shameful weeks of having it sit on a bookshelf, Gizmag recently decided it was time to embark upon not one but two very ambitious projects for its Raspberry Pi: turning it on, and building a LEGO case for it. Needless to say, in both cases we turned to the worldwide web for fast, easy answers. I say "turning it on," but considering that's as simple as connecting a power adapter (not included), we thought we'd go one better and get the thing properly up and running.

We’ve been amazed by the variety of software that people have written for, or ported to, the Raspberry Pi.
Joe Walnes, a Chicago-based hacker and maker, has just released a design for what he has dubbed the Pi Crust : a very cheap new hardware add-on for the Raspberry Pi . The breakout board, which debuted on Wednesday, is meant to make it easier to tack various hardware peripherals onto the cheap computer, and it does so in an compact design.
By now you've probably heard of the Raspberry Pi; no, not the dessert, the credit card-sized computer that runs Linux. It has many of the capabilities of a traditional PC and can be used for word processing, spreadsheets, and games.
What you need: A Raspberry Pi WITH ETHERNET - http://www.raspberrypi.org/ An USB Stick for it (Please do not use USB HDDs or extra large size sticks) An USB power cable for the Pi (USB A, normal plug as on your USB stick -> RPi power in) The ability to configure a static IP in whatever OS you run A box to ship it to Austria No credit card required :)
We love the Raspberry Pi. This tiny computer has so much potential for makers, and it is offered at an extremely reasonable price. The one thing we didn’t like about the Pi is how inaccesible it is to those who are new to Linux.
This summer, the University of Cambridge Computer Lab has been home to a small group working on projects with the Raspberry Pi. Alex Chadwick is one of those people, and he’s produced this: a free course on building a very simple operating system for the Raspberry Pi in assembly language .
Ashley Newson is a sixth-form student from Oxford. Alex Bradbury and Rob Mullins from the Raspberry Pi Foundation met him at the University of Cambridge Computer Lab open day, where he came over with an SD card ready to show off a demo of SmartSim, his home-grown circuit design and simulation package.
