These days even the most casual web surfer on Starbucks free Wi-Fi needs a VPN. With its small size and low power consumption, the Raspberry Pi platform makes a great choice for a portable VPN you can stick in your laptop bag for use on the road, or to protect always on connections like your home network. Lifehacker has a great tutorial on making your Raspberry Pi VPNby combining the minicomputer hardware with free and open source software (Hamachi from LogMeIn for the VPN and Privoxy for a web browsing proxy).
