The Commodore 64 Mini coming in 2018

With all the classic consoles rising from the dead to pry money from our hands it was just a matter of time before a classic computer followed suit!  It was retail for $70 and even though it has a keyboard it is not functional … but … you can hook up a USB keyboard and really program on the commuter.  It will come will come with 64 games installed.

CCleaner Infection More Severe Than Thought, Targeted Microsoft, Google, Samsung

Even more bad news for users of CCleaner.  We now know the attack was worse than initially thought. The CCleaner malware could be used to deliver a second-stage payload that would run on local systems and perform various tasks. This isn’t an unusual malware feature, but researchers didn’t think the capability had been used in this case. We now know that it was, and that some of the internet’s biggest players were targeted.

Nightwing Movie Still Doesn’t Have The Title Character Cast

CinemaBlend reported that director Chris McKay tweeted last tuesday about the Nightwing spot still not being filled.  He commented that they need to “… find the perfect person.”

X-Men: The Dark Phoenix

The new movie is in production and while not a ton is known about what the actual storyline will be or how closely it will follow the comics, Actress Olivia Munn who plays Psylocke has let it slip that this film will be a two parter. Fans of course react in the usual way, by trolling each other over the internet in a total split on if this is good news or not!

Terminator Sequel in 2019

James Cameron Producing, Deadpool’s Tim Miller to direct and it looks like the plan is to make this a sequel/reboot of the franchise, much like Star Wars did with The Force Awakens. Reportedly both Arnie and Linda Hamilton will be featured in the film as well.

Double Your Tweets, Double Your Fun

Twitter will be doubling the amount of characters you will be able to tweet.  You now have 280 characters to get your message through.  Will it help Trump seem more Presidential?

Amazon Hardware Event News

With everything from a new FireTV complete with HDR/4K capabilities, the new Echo Spot to even the small $20 Echo Buttons, Amazon has decided they needed to remind everyone that Alexa is still the most used device out there! Are these new announcements enough to make you want to finally get in the game with a smart home?

The Echo Connect directly answers the threat from Google Mini Home and the phone calling capabilities.
