The developers of Raspberry Pi OS have released a new build that eliminates the default “pi” user account, which means that in the interest of security you’ll need to create a new account when setting up the operating system for Raspberry Pi computers.

Meanwhile SolidRun has introduced a new system on a module that it says is the smallest to support up to a 16-core CPU, a small team at Microsoft have developed a clone of Apple’s Quick Look feature, which could bring fast file previewing to File Explorer (via PowerToys) eventually, LG has introduced a 16 inch portable display that weighs less than a kilogram (2.2 pounds), and Barnes & Noble’s new Audiobook service looks an awful lot like Amazon’s Audible (except a lot later to the game… it’s launching nearly a decade and a half after Amazon acquired Audible).

Here’s a roundup of recent tech news from around the web.

  1. I’m starting to think that these tiny ARM compute modules are really just a crude answer to what the ARM world really needs: Socketed CPUs.
