I had a little accident today, bumped my head against an overhang in the shop, which wasn’t clearly marked. (I didn’t make a big thing about it, because I probably shouldn’t have been walking so close to the escalator).
Fortunately though I just caught the top of the headphone band, so my skull was not impacted. Unfortunately my wireless Bluetooth Sony headphones caught the brunt of the hit, ripped off my head and crashed to the ground. It was a clean break. But hey! they still work thanks to that one little wire.
Anyway, I bought some super glue, and carefully glued them back on. There was only a very small area to glue so I am hoping they will be okay.
I walked back to the car this evening and they are good as new and still sound fantastic, so that was a lucky escape.
I bought a Raspberry Pi model B+ starter kit yesterday.
It came with a full-size USB keyboard, mouse, Wi-Fi Dongle, 4 port USB powered hub, HDMI cable, and standard USB cable and an 8GB sdcard containing NOOBS.
I set it up today, which was dead easy, but to be honest having all the wired hardware (keyboard & mouse, HDMI cable and power cable) plugged in, made the tiny Raspberry Pi board a little messy.
My solution: one Bluetooth dongle + the Ranger Bluetooth keyboard and mouse.
I was going to do a review on this incredible keyboard/mouse/pointer and then remembered I did a review on it a year ago. (See the link above).

My latest most awesome gadget is a 66g Bluetooth 3.0 Palmtop Keyboard II from Ranger. I bought it in Singapore for $55 at the Funan Digital Store. It connects to anything that has Bluetooth.
So far I have tested it on my Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and was able to fully control the phablet, and was even able to move the mouse around the screen and click into icons, folders, move forward and backwards, just like one would on a computer. Everything can be controlled with this keyboard and touch pad mouse. If it works this well on my phablet then it must work even better on a Tablet given the size of the screen.
