You don’t need to connect to a external monitor when the Raspberry Pi is connected to a network. You can use Virtual Network Computing by installing tightvnc on your Raspberry Pi and using the pre installed “screen sharing” on your Mac.
First you need to install tightvnc on your Pi:
pi@raspberrypi ~ $sudo apt-get install tightvncserver
and run it
pi@raspberrypi ~ $tightvncserver
If you have a Mac you need to go to the “Finder” and select “Go > Connect to Server…” or use the Shortcut “CMD + K”
Recently I ordered a Raspberry Pi camera module and I going to share the some I made for getting the camera and the Pi working for me. The Hardware I have is a Mac (OS version 10.9 – Mavericks), a Raspberry Pi module B 2012 and a Raspberry Pi Camera Module v3.
Connecting and installing the camera
Follow the steps on http://www.raspberrypi.org/camera. Don’t forget to use the connector behind the Ethernet port and not the other one.

Google search offers some nice ways to show of their popular searches in realtime. Here are two examples:
A widget to show of the most popular searches on Google in your country.
Ik wilde graag een notificatie krijgen als er een nieuw product wordt aangeboden op Marktplaats.nl met een specifieke zoekopdracht. Nu heeft Marktplaats.nl zelf geen notificatie mechanisme. Dus even Googlen en ik kwam uit op het koppelen van een niet op de site vermelde RSS-feed (via opensearch) aan mijn rss-reader of aan de webtool ifttt.com.
Lost in the crowd? Now the solution is here the CHUCK T9000!

When I was searching for the best app for keeping track of my watched movies/series I found trakt.tv to be the best one. Months ago I already started adding movies that I wanted to see on imdb.com. But this was not a very nice listing system for keeping track of my movies I wanted to see or have seen. I’ve also looked at a similar service called follw.it, but I think the interface is less cool.
Trakt.tv is a social site about movies and television series, you can make friends here by following each other. Next to that you can see lists of friends or lists that other users have made. If you want to see all the movies that you have seen in the past (this is probably allot…), the lists feature is great to browse and add to your collection! For example their is a 80’s classics list or a James Bond list. So you can easily use these lists as a reference for your own collection.
