Review: Epomaker GK68XS Bluetooth mechanical keyboard

Granted that Bluetooth keyboards don’t have any direct connection to ebooks, they are nonetheless an important key to making better use of the tablet that you might have gotten to do various things that include e-reading—such as, for example, going to a picturesque spot to write something that might one day become an ebook.

I’ve reviewed a number of such keyboards for TeleRead, in fact: these models by AmazonBasics and Anker, as well as an Anker keyboard cover for the iPad Mini; Julie reviewed a keyboard by Inateck, also. Which provides me with all the excuse I need to review another, because I think I’ve finally found the nearly perfect Bluetooth tablet keyboard: the Epomaker GK68XS.

I picked it up basically on a whim, when I ran across the Kickstarter funding the project in a Facebook advertisement. The design of the keyboard intrigued me, so I shelled out the cash. Some

The $10 Raspberry Pi Zero W is the teeniest little Wi-Fi-enabled computer you’ve ever seen

 When the original $5 Raspberry Pi Zero came out – to much fanfare, I might add – users connected it to all sorts of things. They made micro gaming rigs that ran on the 1GHz single-core CPU and added Pi Hats – little breakout boards – to power robots and sensors. Now you can do all that but without worrying about a Wi-Fi or Bluetooth dongle. The $10 Pi Zero W is the… Read More

Hoofbeatz Audio announces ‘i Rock N Ride’ horseback riding Bluetooth speaker

When I think of horseback riding, my mind drifts to simpler times. It also conjures thoughts of cowboys, farming, and the Amish. Since the invention of motorized vehicles, equestrian travel just seems a bit old fashioned. With all of that said, there is an apparent need to bring technology to horseback riding. How, you ask? With the Hoofbeatz Audio ‘i Rock N Ride’ Bluetooth speaker, currently on Kickstarter. You can now listen to music and answer telephone calls from the convenience of your saddle! “Riders can send or receive phone calls, ride to music and use Siri and Android voice prompts, all… [Continue Reading]

Everything You Need to Set Up Bluetooth on the Raspberry Pi 3

One of the best new features of the Raspberry Pi 3 is its on-board Bluetooth , but while the software needed to get it working is easy to install, it might be a bit baffling to use. Element14 has a guide to working with Bluetooth from Raspbian.

Raspberry Pi 3 adds WiFi, Bluetooth, 64-bit CPU

raspberry-pi-3-640x427The Raspberry Pi just keeps getting tastier. Ars Technica and The Register report on the third generation of the console, which offers a few intriguing new twists and hardware upgrades.

Perhaps most importantly, the Pi now has WiFi and Bluetooth capabilities built into it, freeing up its USB slots for other uses. It also sports a 64-bit 1.2 GHz quad-core ARM Cortex A53 chip. All available Pi operating systems at the moment are 32-bit, and there are no current plans to upgrade, but the A53 will also serve as a better 32-bit processor than the old 32-bit ARM A7.

As these computers get more and more capable, the potential uses for them expand. I have a friend who’s combined one with a 3D-printed case and 7” display to make a sort of do-it-yourself tablet—much bulkier than an ordinary manufactured tablet, of course, but with the advantage of complete hardware and software openness. And the form factor will undoubtedly improve over time. Who knows—perhaps given a few years, everyone will be slapping their own tablet together from parts rather than buying them pre-made from the store.

The credit-card-sized computer motherboard is now on sale for $35 or £30 from Raspberry Pi’s resellers, such as Element14, Think Allied, and RS Components, depending on whether the Atlantic is east or west of you.
