On My iPhone/iPad…World of Tanks Blitz

With my gaming son sharing a desk with me in the home office, I get to see a lot of game play, especially beta and early access games. He has been playing World of Tanks on his PC for a while now, but the other day he grabbed house iPad to install the iOS version of the game. While it can't be nearly as complex as a PC-based game, after playing through the tutorial myself, I am quite impressed at the interaction, graphics and game play. I have even run it on my iPhone and although the type and graphics are a bit small, even on my iPhone 4s, the game plays  quite well and is very responsive. Since World of Tanks Blitz is a "Free-toPlay" game, it costs nothing to check it out and see if it might be a good casual game for you.

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
