Stuff Office Cat's Diary – 28/02/13

Raspberry Pi contest, Iron Man 3 merch and one billion iTunes U downloads – Office Cat rounds up the pick of the day's news

Hasbro launches Iron Man 3 toy

Tying in with the release of Iron Man 3 on 26 April, Hasbro has produced new playtime movie merchandise under the Iron Man Assemblers brand. The handsome Sonic Blasting Iron Man figure with motorised missile launcher is part of the new line. Office Cat wonders when Hollywood will finally take notice of his Oscar-worthy Iron Cat screenplay.

Over one billion iTunes U lessons downloaded

Why go to an expensive, real university when you can learn for free at iTunes U? Office Cat clearly isn't the only one to think this, as over iTunes U content has seen over one billion downloads and some courses with over 250,000 students enrolled and content from over 1,200 universities.

iTunes U

Native Union Switch Bluetooth speaker

This portable speaker crams in a subwoofer, 14 hour battery life for battery and calls, plus a neat volume control wheel. It's apparently called Switch because you can use it in either a horizontal or vertical position and in a power crisis it will even charge your other gadgets via USB. All this for £130.
