10 essential upgrades for your Raspberry Pi

We also talk to the team behind secure distro Tails to find out about their take on cyber security in issue 140 of Linux User & Developer

If you’re anything like us – and dear Lord we hope you are not – you sometimes sit staring at your Raspberry Pi, willing it to do more. Unfortunately our mental prowess is not powerful enough to materialise extra features or tweak the performance of the ARM chip, so we instead turned to the internet and looked for ways to upgrade our Pi.

We came away with ten items that can help make your Raspberry Pi usage just that little bit better; from the simplest of USB cable switches to full-on touch screen LCD displays for the Pi. We then wrote a feature about it which you can read all about in the latest issue of Linux User & Developer.

We also talk to the anonymous team developing Tails, the hyper-secure Linux distro that is designed specifically to maintain your privacy online. Privacy has been a hot topic for everyone, and on the first anniversary of the ‘Snowden Revelations’ it’s something we should not forget. Our full review of the distro can be found in the mag but you can read a large chunk of it in our web review.

Also in the mag we have our usual selection of tutorials, such as getting Google Drive on Linux, programming Octave, the final part of our Kivy tutorial series and programming Minecraft Pi along with plenty of other Raspberry Pi tutorials in our Pi mini mag.
