On my iPhone/Android...Real Racing 3

It's the holidays and sometimes you want to use your technology for more than just email, spreadsheets and phone calls. This has lead me to seek ut some apps that bring a bit more fun to my iPhone, our iPad and our Android devices, like my Kindle Fire.
 
I have been watching YouTube series playthoughs of the Forza and F1 Racing games for consoles and PCs and this got me to thinking about racing games so I did a little searching and found Real Racing 3. I have been enjoying it greatly for the last several days. Real Racing is a free-to-play game. This means you can download and play but it also offers a host of real-world points that can be purchased to speed game play. For example, if you decide to upgrade one of your vehicles, you may need to wait 10-15 minutes before you can play you next race, or pay a few extra credits to continue immediately. I am not one to invest a lot of real money in games, but I have found a lot of game play in the free version, simply waiting out the delays to play the next round.
 
You play Real Racing 3 by tilting your iPhone or iPad to steer and tapping the screen to accelerate and brake. In early stages, you can engage both auto acceleration and braking to help you get through the races or turn off the assists to gain more experience points and make the game more challenging.
 
Races take around 5-10 minutes to complete in each round, with different challenges like time trials, regular races, elimination head-to-head races and more. This make it an easily "snackable" game to play when you have a few minutes and want a quick, fun, break.

Onion Pi makes your web traffic anonymous via Open Electronics

Hmmm, might be an easy (and relatively cheap) way to play around with Tor and learn a bit more about this anonymizing service. -- Douglas Adafruit’s Onion Pi is a Tor proxy that makes your web traffic anonymous, allowing you to use the internet free of snoopers and any kind of surveillance. Follow Adafruit’s tutorial on setting up Onion Pi and you’re on your way to a peaceful anonymous browsing experience. Tor is an onion routing service – every internet packet goes through 3 layers of relays before going to your destination. This makes it much harder for the server you are accessing (or anyone snooping on your Internet use) to figure out who you are and where you are coming from.

How to Build a Raspberry Pi-Powered Digital Photo Frame via Tom's Hardware

A digital photo frame is a small screen that can sit on your desk in your office or in your kitchen displaying your favorite pictures, changing at regular intervals. The first commercial digital photo frame was introduced in the 1990s shortly after the digital camera. Digital photo frames made a comeback in popularity during 2020, perhaps because people were staying at home more. In this tutorial, we’ll turn our Raspberry Pi into a digital photo frame using MagicMirror and the GooglePhotos module. Please note, we will skip installation of the 2-way mirror in the original Magic Mirror project. Consider this project, “Magic Mirror, without the mirror.” Read How to Build a Raspberry Pi-Powered Digital Photo Frame via Tom's Hardware An interesting link found among my daily reading
