Raspberry Pi 2 Project Beginnings

A quick post today to update our visitors that I’ve ordered and received a Raspberry Pi 2 kit in the mail from NewEgg recently.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIA5YB34Y2087 *It was on sale via their http://flash.newegg.com/ site (great area of NewEgg by the way)

I’m not sure what project I’ll attack but I’ve seen a couple of really cool ones out there that peaked my interest, yet I think I’ll take my own unique approach to his and keep everyone updated once I get the ball rolling.

Origin Accounts to be Renamed EA Accounts

Here’s a new one for you gamers out there that love Origin and all things digital download from EA.

EA is going to make their naming convention even easier and wipe clean the slate of their doomed digital platform by transitioning all Origin accounts over to EA accounts.

Little is say behind the reasoning for this change outside of having an easier time to identify with EA content and we’ll just have to sit and wait for this transition to occur without complaining.

I’ll have to say that I do really enjoy using Origin for its support they provide but I do not enjoy having to use another digital platform to manage my games. I’ll go as far as to say that Origin is miles ahead of UPlay. UPlay really needs to be shot into space and never spoken of again.

Windows 10 Launching on 29th July 2015!

windows_10_release_date_2015_0

After long last, we have an official update from Windows 8 and not just the lazy additions that 8.1 brought to the table but a full fledged upgrade to the Windows operating system in the form of Windows 10.

Don’t let the lack of a Windows 9 operating system weight too heavy on your mind for the time being, that is something that will be answered around the same time that Dre drops Detox so, it should be real soon that we’ll come to understand why Microsoft went from Windows 8.1 to Windows 10.

For those users who have Windows 7 or Windows 8.1 the upgrade to Windows 10 is free and you should have already received an alert informing you that you are eligible for an update! For those users with illegitimate copies, you know damn well that you ain’t gonna receive no update message bitches. Anyone still on Windows 8, the upgrade to Windows 8.1 is free and you should have already done so quite some time ago which is why there isn’t any details on upgrade process for Windows 8 users because y’all are already on Windows 8.1…

I for sure will welcome this upgrade and build on the Windows ecosystem minus the gaming console; I’m a Playstation fan and having two consoles with two subscriptions doesn’t seem financially sound to me, maybe a Wii U.

Well, that’s all for this post, sit tight for the next great operating system that will take gaming and productivity to the next level!!!!
