How To Take Hot Backup Of Raspberry Pi Without Removing The SD Card

Since we are supposed to do a lot of tweaking and tinkering with our Raspberry Pi installations, it is always a good idea to backup the working SD card image before venturing for any experimentation. One way to do this is to take the whole SD card out and use another Windows/Mac computer to backup and restore the full sd-card image as demonstrated earlier. To save you with this much hassle, here we are with another method to perform automated "hot backups" from a Raspberry Pi itself to an external USB disk drive or remote storage. Simply use the provided Shell script and enjoy fast, efficient and automated RPi backups.

[Video] This Spooky Innovation From Sky Deutschland Injects Audio Ads Directly Into Your Brains !!!!!!

Advertisers are always looking for new ways to bypass consumer ad-blindness and innovating new tactics to achieve that. Sky Deutschland has now developed a technology that transfers audio messages from train windows directly and silently into commuters' heads.

Sky Go - The talking window transforms a normal silent window to a completely new audio message delivery medium. The technology makes use of a special transmitter attached to the windows releasing inaudible high-frequency oscillations that are converted to sound directly inside the brain bypassing the ear completely. Passengers leaning their head against the window will "hear" adverts "coming from inside the user's head" while nothing is audible to nearby commuters. As spooky and as intrusive this might seem, the technology is already here and asking train commuters to install the SkyGo mobile entertainment app - do watch the technology in action from the video posted below (click the image below for video).

MagicPlay - The Open-source Apple AirPlay Alternative For Audio Streaming Over WiFi

Apple AirPlay is a proprietary protocol that allows supported devices to wirelessly stream audio, video, and photos complete with related metadata between devices. With various manufacturers releasing AirPlay-only Wi-Fi speakers, the technology enjoyed it's dominance since it's inception in 2004 as AirTunes (named AirPlay later) in the Wi-Fi music streaming market while non-Apple device users have been left out in the cold.

A new open-source technology MagicPlay aims to change that by providing the first standardized music streaming protocol over WiFi. The BSD-licensed open source reference implementation allows any app developer or hardware manufacturer to integrate this their products. Miracast and Wi-Fi Direct (Intel WiDi) are two other contenders in this niche but are limited to specific devices supporting Wi-Fi Direct.

Easy To Understand Raspberry Pi GPIO Pin Layout Diagram

One of the major strength and a reason for Raspberry Pi success has been the General Purpose Input/Output (GPIO) access offered by the mini computer, these programmable in/out pins allows a great of hackability letting users expand the system and get it interacting with other hardware devices. The GPIO pin's are confusing as they are not numbered serially, here are two nice RasPi GPIO pinout layouts for making things easier to understand.
