Malware and viruses are everywhere on the internet and in the computing systems. And it had not left the Raspberry Pi too. In the second half of May 2017, a Trojan was detected in Linux environment named as Linux.MulDrop.14. As the Raspberry Pi devices are mostly depended on the Linux distribution, they are affected the most. The Trojan came in the form of a script with the aim of mining the compressed and encrypted techniques. It surely creates a question for the Raspberry Pi network security. (more…)

In the January 2017, ASUS has released a top competitor of Raspberry Pi in the form a single board computer named as Tinker Board. It was put in the direct competition to Raspberry Pi. Though the ASUS Tinker Board is costly than the Raspberry Pi 3 Model B, it offers some extra features and performance which make it a worth purchase. Till the date, this amazing SBC was available only in the UK and neighbor regions, but now finally, it is also available in the US market.
Without any doubt in mind, we will say that all the members of the Raspberry Pi family are excellent and value for money. Whether it is the first experimental Pi model or the fastest Raspberry Pi 3, the $5 Pi Zero computer or its upgraded and latest version Pi Zero W, each of the newly launched model is better than its predecessor in either one or more areas.
You can do anything with this single board computer like displaying on board messages, running the Android, doubling as a wireless router, or using it as a fully-functional computer. With such a huge demand and popularity, many brands were inspired to build such low-cost and feature-rich single board computers to become the top recommendations for the Raspberry Pi alternatives. Many of them failed to gain the popularity as the Pi has, but some of them indeed became the Raspberry Pi Competitors.
Today, we will discuss such great Raspberry Pi 3 alternatives like Beaglebone, Orange Pi, Banana Pi, Asus Tinker Board, etc. and check the comparison of Beaglebone Vs Raspberry Pi 3 which will give you a clear idea about the alternatives to Raspberry Pi. (more…)
