Control other than via GPIO

I have a 4" touch screen on my Pi connected to all the GPIO pins. I want my Pi to interact with a Micro:BIT, sending and receiving info. The obvious way is via the GPIOs. Is there another way I can make the two talk?

Thank you

Re: Cheap 'n simple UPS

I think I'd use one of these as I intend to plug my Pi (for power) in to a USB port either in a laptop or my Wii.  The problem here is that when the devices are rebooted and stuff, the USB power goes off for a second.  This presumably would eliminate that issue?

I was under the impression the iMac G5 was pre x86 architecture. If not, guess I won't bother then!  Thanks for the reply

Re: Firewall

I have tried searching for this and haven't found anything, but apologies if I've just missed it.  I know that Smoothwall won't go on the pi (unless someone ports it), but is there an alternative?

Thank you

Re: How programmeable is it?

<t>One of the things I'd like to do with a Pi is make an Internet radio for my wife. The reason I'm asking how programmeable it is is that I don't want her to have to boot it in to Linux with a screen, keyboard and mouse attached, start the radio application, and choose her channel before she can li...
