Great case but one big drawback is the flat ribbon cable that comes with the touchscreen is too short. They must have switched things up and started shipping with a shorter cable. Most all videos I see show to have a cable about an inch or so longer than what came with mine. It just barely is able to be connected and has a strain on the connector on the pi.

I’ve got to agree with some of the others. The addition of the wireless communications is great! A bigger better faster CPU is great! But no more memory? Uhm????
Tutorial - Weather Station Wirelessly Connected to Wunderground
about 3 years ago
I just got my weather station up and running and is basically the same one Nathan built with same code (watch for beer in the mail).
The only exception is mine is still running off of an AC adapter. I still have to get the LiPO battery, charger, and solar panel. I think that will be a piece of cake though. Just a few tips for other beginners like myself: #1 Get an Electric Imp first and learn how it works, how to program it etc. #2 Then get the imp shield and read the hookup guide on it. Once you have mastered those the rest is a walk in the park. Simply going through the weather station tutorial after you buy all the parts will leave you scratching your head just a bit. A few things weren’t adding up for me and once I got #1 and 2 above, everything fell into place and worked like a charm!

How do you set the time/date? I successfully setup a data stream on data.sparkfun.com and having posting data ever 5 minutes. The date/time stamp is all wrong. Are there commands or code to set the time/date after the Thing is powered up?
