The Pi Podcast has just published their latest episode. This one features an interview with teacher (and all round lovely person) Hannah Mills as well as all the important news from the Pi world. You can listen to the Podcast here. On a sad note, the team has also announced that this is to be their last episode due to other commitments.
You wait ages for an ROV powered by a Raspberry Pi and then two come along at once. Following on from Blue Robotics ROV the other day, the Foundation has blogged about OpenROV and their new Trident platform which has a Raspberry Pi 3 on board. Take a look here.
Boot from USB
Gordon Hollingworth has announced, over on the Raspberry Pi blog, that the Raspberry Pi 3 can be booted from USB mass storage devices. Information on how to do it, and which devices have been found (so far) to be compatible can be found on this page. Further boot modes, such as over Ethernet, will be explored in future blog posts.
