    As I’ve researched Arduino, Beagleboard, Raspberry Pi, and others for a
    project, I have watched a lot of videos. I’m an experienced software
    developer and electronics engineer but these videos would be helpful with

    life, I’d like to use it only for email, office, occasional 1080p video and
    music.In the video he says it can be used as a office machine, but he does
    not show any ”work”. What do you think? ALSO: Can the micro USB be used
    to connect the R-pi to a PC? Like when you’ve got android device? Thanks?
