A new version of the pocket-sized BBC micro:bit computer is coming to schools worldwide, packed with new features designed to keep young students up-to-date with the latest hot trends in technology. 

New hardware will help young coders make experiments with artificial intelligence, and build applications running machine-learning systems. The micro:bit 2.0 also includes, for the first time, a built-in speaker and microphone, so that sound-based projects no longer have to be connected to exterior audio systems – while also letting the device respond and react to sounds like clapping. 

And in a nod to big tech and the industry’s privacy headaches, an LED will flash to make it clear when the microphone is on and sensing sound, to encourage young users to reflect on the pervasiveness of listening devices.

Benchmarks for the iPad Air 4 have seemingly surfaced, indicating the A14 Bionic expected to be used in the “iPhone 12” range offers more performance than the high-powered A13 Bionic and the iPad Pro’s A12Z Bionic.

Guggenheim Securities analyst Michael Morris has boosted his 12-month price targets for six internet companies he covers, upgraded Snap Inc. and initiated coverage of Pinterest with a buy rating.

I skipped the Series 5* but got the Series 6. Is it worth it?

tl:dr: Getting the newest Apple Watch is not like upgrading your iPad or MacBook. Changes — like a brighter always-on display — are much more subtle.

So subtle, that the average consumer probably won’t notice any difference between the Series 5 or Series 6. And many may not see anything different from the Series 3 or 4.

There are differences, however. After upgrading from the Series 4 and using the Series 6 for almost a week, here’s what I notice:

(Note: this is not an exhaustive review but meant as a quick-read review covering the highlights.)

Always-on display / brighter on Series 6: always-on is the biggest noticeable difference from the Series 4 and anything earlier. Suffice to say, if you have an always-on-display,
