Building Internet-connected things seems obvious today, but what about when there’s no Internet?
The concept often feels like something out of a science fiction movie or a doomsday prepper’s handbook- and while this device can work in both scenarios, it’s also about understanding resiliency for your projects and being a good steward of the systems in place today.
Es gibt sicherlich Wichtigeres unter den heutigen und zukünftigen Umständen, aber das “Raspberry Pi Recovery Kit” ist schon echt ein Kunstwerk.
Preis und Verfügbarkeit orientieren sich auch an Apple: 199 US$ und 2020.
Da der Analogue Pocket nur echte ROM-Cartridges abspielt wird für die weiteren Handheld Konsolen ein Adapter benötigt. Zu diesen weiteren Konsolen gehören: Sega Game Gear, Neo Geo Pocket Color und Atari Lynx.
Auch soll es Dock geben, mit:
USB-A Anschlüssen für drahtgebundene Controller
Bluetooth (für z. B. drahtlose 8BitDo Bluetooth Controller)
Ein Preis und Erscheinungsdatum für das Dock stehen noch nicht.
The Woz Limited Edition reward will be limited to 50 units. There will never again be production run. The best part is each case will be glow-in-the-dark!
This clear case would solve the yellowing problems with my Apple II case. Even better would be the glow-in-the-dark Woz Limited Edition, which would nicely fit with the glow-in-the-dark Amiga 1200 case I backed once. But 450 US$ is a steep price. Ouch.
A few weeks ago good mother @vowe made me aware of an Amazon.de special offer for the external Samsung Portable SSD T5. Since one of my SuperDuper! backup drives failed a few days ago, my wife also needed some new backup drives, and the Arlo Pro 2 base station for continuous video recording, I ordered four of them.
The latter one worked flawlessly after I formatted it with FAT – yeah. But the other three keep ejecting themselves after some time – meh. I know all the Energy Saver settings to prevent the Macs and hard disk from sleeping automatically. But nothing seems to prevent the unwanted ejecting.
I don’t know if it was related on my insistence to format the T5 with APFS (ding!) but three different Macs (an iMac 5K, a MacBook Adorable and a MacBook Air) all with the latest macOS version could not be wrong. So I took it to the Internet and boy what a mess I found. Suggestions to use some Windows tools from Samsung to disable some security settings on the T5 or to install some kext drivers on my Macs. I was sure I would have found some terminal commands to make the T5 behave as expected – but I didn’t want to go this route.
Then I remembered the Sandisk Extreme Portable SSD attached to my iMac 5K via an OWC Thunderbolt 2 Dock. This SSD worked reliably and quietly for years, that I nearly forgot it. Luckily Amazon.de doesn’t make any fuss when returning stuff so I sent the Samsungs back and ordered the same amount from Sandisk. These now work like a charm, even with APFS and we will forget them surely soon.
PS None of the Amazon.de links are affiliate links – just that you know.
Protip – To speed-up watchOS updates disable Bluetooth on the iPhone while the update is loaded to Apple Watch. For me it went from 7 hours to a couple of minutes. I'am always the last one to get to know these tricks.
Just in time for the launch of Apple Arcade I managed to get Lotharek’s SIO2SD run with my Atari 800. Hours of fun ahead. #atari #atari800 #sio2sd
