Ozeri WeightMaster II

Hands On:

On taking the scales out of the box, I was immediately impressed by the build quality of this instrument.
The scales are very tactile and Have been ergonomically designed, The top of the scales is warm to the touch and feel comfortable when you stand on them in your bare feet. the surface of the scales has been treated with microban antibacterial material which is a bonus when standing on the scales one different people stand on scales in their feet.

The scales can be utilised by up to eight different users, each one can set up their own profile on the scales and then subsequently the scales will automatically recognise the user by their weight.

CentOSInstalling Tweepy on CentOS can be a little challenging if you are trying to following other tutorials based on mainstream desktop Linux OS’s.

Don’t forget – to use Tweepy you will need to obtain your keys from the Twitter developer site

Below you can find the commands you require to install on CentOS:

rpm -ivh http://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/6/x86_64/epel-release-6-8.noarch.rpm
yum install -y python-pip
pip install tweepy

That’s it.. Now you can call tweepy from the command line or scripts.

If you are looking for a Python script to take advantage of Tweepy check out this post from RasPi.TV. Which works perfectly on my Pi and CentOS boxes.



Ozeri Precision II Digital Bathroom ScaleKeeping fit and healthy is something I often (sometimes not often enough) strive to do. So keeping a keen eye on what I eat and what I weigh is an important part of my lifestyle. The market is awash with all sorts of personal health and fitness related technology from wearable tech to home gym equipment. One area of the market which in its self has a mass collection of varying tech is that of the bathroom scale section.

Each set of scales offers its own collection of features and fittings, some being so over complex they even offer pitfalls. However, the American based firm Ozeri are known for their easy to use intuitive product range, and the Precision II doesn’t vier far from default.

Rockstar Games have long since been known for their massively popular series of games ‘Grand Theft Auto’ which premiered on PC and PlayStation platforms back in 1997. Back then it was simply a top down based view on the player and his antics.

It’s fair to say the releases that followed the very first GTA have been breath-taking. Non more so then the latest remastered version of Grand Theft Auto 5, which is due for release on all major platforms on the 18th of November this year.

GTA 5 fetches with it something nobody expected.. That is a ‘first person’ for in-game action. This can be seen in the recently released trailer below. It’s not yet clear it this will make the game any harder, as GTA has never been known for its accuracy around gun control. However, its fair to say the first person view of driving looks awesome.

Grand Theft Auto 5 is available to preorder via the PlayStation Network, and from most popular retail and online outlets.

I’ve been out of the GTA loop now since my PS 3 died its red light death, however I have the new one on preorder and I’m looking forward to reviewing it on release day!
