Apple Sends Out Event Invites to One More Thing

Apple has sent out invitations to tech journalists for One More Thing this year, it’s final virtual press event of the season

We’re expected to see ARM Macs and the release of the latest version of macOS, Big Sur. 

It is traditional to overly examine Apple invitations for clues, the funniest I’ve seen is that the invitation kind of looks like the spinning beachball of death… 

According to AppleInsider: Current speculation points to a form of MacBook Pro, possibly a refined version of the 13-inch MacBook Pro. There has been some suggestion of multiple MacBook models, as well as a MacBook Air, while a 14-inch MacBook Pro and 16-inch MacBook Pro using the technology may wait until 2021.

Airtags and new AirPods Studio are also a possibility. 

Spotify Streaming is coming to Apple Watch

Spotify has begun beta testing streaming on Apple Watch, according to 9to5 Mac

Multiple users have shared they are seeing the feature show up on their wearables, after the feature was beta tested in September

Spotify allows playback on Fitbit and Samsung watches. 

The Adorable Raspberry Pi 400 should be your kid’s first computer

According to The Verge: The Raspberry Pi Foundation has announced the Raspberry Pi 400, a compact keyboard with an ARM-based computer built in. Just plug it into a TV or monitor using one of its two micro HDMI ports, insert a microSD card, attach a power cord and mouse, and you’ve got yourself a basic computer for day-to-day tasks, coding, or media playback. It’s available starting today as a standalone machine for $70 or in a bundle including a mouse, power supply, microSD card, HDMI cable, and beginner’s guide for $100. Prices are USD

This is wonderful, and even though I already have a Raspberry Pi doing nothing in my tech closet, I’m incredibly tempted to buy this for my kid
