Title: California Highway Patrol

In this episode: A cheaper Pi, an even cheaper alternative, and Firefox now includes added DRM. We’ve got some ace Finds, an even more awesome Neurons section and the most divisive Voice of the Masses ever (not really).

What’s in the show:

  • News:
    • The Raspberry Pi B+ model has had its price dropped to just $25. C.H.i.P., the world’s first $9 general purpose computer (which runs Linux), has already raised $1,272,063 from its Kickstarter campaign with 22 days to go (it’s worth mentioning the hardware won’t be available until next year). Mozilla’s Firefox browser is now shipping DRM, in the form of Adobe’s Content Decryption Module. And Linux Voice announces the results of its first year’s profit donating scheme.
