Talking about using Etcher to load an SD card without NOOBS. In the Raspian Buster Lite 2020-02-05 file on my computer, the extension is .img

Figure 1-30

In figure 1-30, the menu that is displayed is the Bluetooth menu (It's the correct menu) but the highlight circle is on the wrong icon to get to that menu. The circle is on the network (WiFi in this case) icon. It needs to be moved over one icon to the left. Nothing major, just a slight correction.

Note from the Author or Editor:
In figure 1-30, please put high contrast circle around the Bluetooth icon (top center)

Great book. I have a clarification question for you.

On page 223, Computer Vision, the book talks about OpenCV... then the Problem statement has OpenCV 3..then the pip install has on page 224 we do a cv2.__version__.

That all said, I'm relatively new to Python and when I went to Amazon to see if there was a book on Computer Vision... there was CV2 3 and 4. My take on the first paragraph is that we've installed the OpenCV 3 is a typo...and the cv2.__version__ is to keep the Python package the same for legacy purposes.

Please advise.


Note from the Author or Editor:
Recipe 8.1: in Problem statement, change 'OpenCV 3' to 'OpenCV 4'

The bottom led of the LED is one row too high.

Note from the Author or Editor:
That's correct - please contact me for a replacement figure. I have one that I made for the Japanese edition.
