DIY battery replacement kits for iPhone 6 or later cut to $29 by iFixit

Yesterday, Apple apologized for throttling the CPU on models like the Apple iPhone 6 or later. After numerous models shutdown last year, unable to complete complex tasks, Apple deduced that the problem was the lack of power remaining in the older batteries inside these units. So iOS 10.2.1 was pushed out, designed to use power management (code for throttling) to slow down the CPU. This would prevent the affected iPhone from shutting down.

The Arduino MKRZero is a teenier, tinier DIY board for hardware hackers

What do you buy for someone who has everything? Either a pink fairy armadillo or an Arduino MKRZero. I’d recommend going with the Arduino.

mkrzero

The MKRZero is basically a really, really small microcomputer with a number of outputs and headers as well as a battery management system and USB control. It’s great for learning or building 32-bit applications and it’s small enough to fit inside almost anything.

All that little guy will teach you is how to love again.
