  • TasteDive Review

    TasteDive Logo

    TasteDive (formerly TasteKid) is a platform for finding new entertainment based on your tastes. It’s similar to how Netflix, Spotify, or Pandora makes recommendations based on your likes.

It’s small size and low power requirements allow users to keep the Pi as an always-on computer.
