Apple’s next MacBook upgrades could be coming soon
We loved last year’s 16-inch MacBook Pro, but now we want all those upgrades (namely the return-to-form keyboard) in other MacBook sizes. Fortunately, they may not be far away. According to 9to5Mac, a new filing with the Eurasian Economic Commission (the ECC) indicates that we could see the more ergonomic notebooks sooner rather than later.
Caveat: The filing simply mentions a “portable personal computer,” so that could mean, well, anything.
Samsung’s Galaxy S20 Ultra might have more RAM than your PC
Max Weinbach (who shared the leaked photos of the S20+ 5G) claims on Twitter that the Galaxy S20 Ultra 5G will have extreme specs, including as much as 16GB of RAM in its top spec, a 5,000 mAh battery, a 48MP secondary camera and up to 512GB of built-in storage before you add a microSD card.
The Super Nintendo World theme park is a ‘life-size, living video game’
Universal Studios Japan is on track to open its Super Nintendo World park this summer, ahead of the Olympic Games. Now it’s teasing the new area with a mostly CG music video and song made by Galantis with Charlie XCX.
It’s not heavy on the facts or features, but there is a dance sequence and some dreamy segments showing how players go from hanging out at home with their Switch to enjoying a real-life experience. A companion website hints at something approximating Mario Kart and the ability to roam the park on Yoshi’s back, but we’d love to hear more about those. Naturally, it’s 2020, so there’s a companion app, too.
Separate to the trailer, in a briefing in Tokyo, Universal Studios Japan showed the Power Up Band, which will track visitors’ progress in its “life-size, living video game,” as well as a mention that future parks will come to Hollywood, Orlando and Singapore.

Apple’s AirPods drop to $129 on Amazon
Don’t worry if you missed out on some of the sweeter AirPods deals from the holidays — you can get a solid bargain right now. Amazon is selling Apple’s standard wireless earbuds for $129, or $30 off (and a return to an all-time low price). You won’t get a wireless charging case or the noise cancellation of the AirPods Pro, but you’re also paying relatively little for some iconic audio.
But wait, there’s more…
