Raspberry Pi Zero – W

Better late than never? Duno. History will be the judge.
What am I talking about? Well, after the tech media and myself included took a massive jab at the Raspberry Pi Foundation for releasing one of the most crippled computers in the history of computers, they have done what they should have done in the first place and added Wifi and Bluetooth to the Raspberry Pi Zero.

I am normally not a fan of the beta news site, but in this case, they have a great wrap up of what you get for your 10 bucks.
Introducing the Raspberry Pi Zero – W.

In a nutshell, you get a pretty useful little Linux PC that you can actually connect to. I will buy one in due course, I even have a use for this guy (now that I can talk to it while it’s in my house Wifi range).

As usual, we can’t buy one. Out of stock pretty much everywhere. Constantly. That’s Ok (for me). It simply proves that I was right all along, they should have skipped the Zero and gone straight to the – W. I suspect before too long they will just quietly stop making / selling the zero and pretend it never happen.

Note to all future computer / IoT device builders. Make sure your little ‘disruptive’ device has some connectivity huh… Because no matter what Gary says, we need to talk to your little wonder. We just do.
