Kicking the show off on a fiery note, we discuss our issue with YouTube, the problem we ran into, the (sort of ) resolution. WARNING! Things may get a little heated.
After being constantly sold out and demand very high, Nintendo makes the logical business choice of discontinuing the NES Classic Mini, is it really gone for good?
Adam has a great recommendation for a game where you can finally settle the argument over how Chuck Norris will fare against a full Roman army and how many chickens will it take to wipe out the German world war II army.
With a 23% growth since this same period in 2016, Sony passes Nikon and is now 2nd only behind Canon in US Full Frame Camera sales. Could the April Fools joke of Fujikon or Nikony actually come true?
We all know the saying, the best camera is the one you have with you, which is why so many people rely on the camera built into their phone. Time Magazine goes out on a limb here with a list of 5 cameras they deem better than your phone. Sure it’s a nice list, but is this really newsworthy?
Who even needs a camera with Google’s ideas for computational photoraphy.
The good folks over at The Verge put up an interesting article discussing the what if aspect of cameras and photography as they merge with high end tech, specifically computational photography. Absurd? Terrifying? Exciting? What do you think?
In what is being called a bold move, Samsung has dropped the physical home button from their phones, opting instead for a pressure sensitive on screen home button option. Is this a big deal or just one more thing for people to freak out about?
