Python is prebuilt into the OSX system, but Matplotlib is not. I am currently developing an integrated program combining both software and hardware intensive features that will be rolled out in the next couple weeks with full fledge documentation of the build. In order to aid my development, I needed many software tools. One of those tools happens to be in the Python environment.
Welcome to the world of microcontrollers. In this section, I will teach you how to learn the PIC micrcontroller. More specifically, the USB 32-Bit Whacker (LINK). This is a very powerful microcontroller. Unlike other tutorials, I will also be learned as I write this tutorial. This is a seperate thinking from the traditional tutorial since by writing as I learn, I will be able to write about the troubles "beginnners" have about microcontrollers.

More specifically, getting started in microcontrollers. There are two main steps, one is to learn C which I will soon add content about. Next is to learn about the physical hardware. A good book that I read that really helped was Microcontrollers Fundamentals for Engineers and Scientists. http://www.morganclaypool.com/doi/abs/10.2200/S00025ED1V01Y200605DCS001

Mhmmmmm... Look at that raspberry pie. If that wasn't mouthwater enough, imagine a $25 computer capable of playing 1080p video without a hitch or playing quake 3 without a hitch as well. If still skeptical or still not mouthwatering enough take a look at the video below.

The purpose of this program is to find out all the armstrong numbers. An armstrong number is a number in which the sum of each digit raised to the number of digits. In this case, I only try to find armstrong numbers with three digits.

Windows 8 is currently allowing anyone to download and preview their new operating systems. I haven't done so yet, but it seems as if Windows 8 might be a very revolutionary software blending the PC world and the post-PC world. Link is down below!
And here is a video of an in depth review of the system.

If you haven't heard aready, there has been a frenzy going on to get hands on a shiny and new $99 tablet with hardware comparable to those tables costing half a grand such as the Apple iPad or the Motorola Xoom. Why the sudden drop in price? Well HP is in the face of restructuring their whole company and from what I've been reading lately, there is a possibly they maybe getting out of the computer making business (most likey dividing it into a sister company or selling it off).

Sorry I haven't been updating this site recently. I've gotten very busy during these last few weeks with trying to learn C along with a couple other things and will probably be busy for the next coming weeks. I really want to add some more content and some applets with things like capacitors, but that might take a little longer than I expect due to how busy I am now. I know what I want to add, but I just don't have the time right now to add the content while learning C too.
