Just got done setting up my new Raspberry Pi-based NES\SNES emulator machine. The Pi handles emulating the games great so far. I wish I could have found Bluetooth SNES-style controllers. But the NES ones will have to do I guess.

If anyone's interested, I used mostly this setup: http://forum.8bitdo.com/thread-328-1-1.html

I may get a 3D printed mini-NES case for it eventually. Or if I get really brave I'll mod an actual NES case. I think I'll make sure it actually works for more than a day or two first.

This is pretty cool. I'd think about getting one, but I don't know that I'd actually use it. It would be cool though...

"C64p is a netbook with the guts of a Commodore 64 (kinda)" http://liliputing.com/2014/12/c64p-netbook-guts-commodore-64-kinda.html
Ever wished there was a laptop version of the Commodore 64 computer? Now there is. One hardware hacker has taken apart a netbook and replaced the screen, processor, and nearly every other internal component to turn it into a portable Commodore 64 with a 7 inch display, a touchpad that works as a joystick, and …

I don't really use GNOME or Groupon, but this seems like a lame thing of Groupon to do.

My daughter is sitting at the breakfast table, eating Cheerios and humming the Imperial march to herself.

I would argue that my sub 3 pound Zenbook is quite different from my first laptop, a 10 pound TI beast where the CD drive could be swapped out for a floppy drive. And even more different than the laptop my dad got from work when I was in junior high with its monochrome screen.

That said, the consumer in me always wants something new and exciting. But the engineer in me knows not to expect something radically different every year.

Apple treats developers poorly and actively squashes those who criticize it? Here's my shocked face

Probably pretty well. Seems like an easy way to try out new game franchises.

Both look like a promising start. I'm ready to let technology companies start deciding how I interact with my phone in the car instead of car companies. Good on Hyundai though for including both.

If this did happen, it would be incredible. Either incredibly sad or incredibly awesome. I'm not sure which. Probably depends on the implementation.

I set up a Plex server a couple of months ago and have been super pleased with it so far. It pretty much just works in all the places. PC, a variety of Android devices, and Chromecast. It's occasionally a little wonky on Chromecast, but no more so than other Chromecast compatible apps like Netflix or YouTube.

Plex is an amazing tool to access your media content on all your devices, here's a quick beginners guide to getting up and running Plex is one of those services that has been around for some time, but that many of us might have passed over for some reason. Be it a lack of understanding of what it actually does, thinking it couldn't possibly be useful to you or something else entirely....

You can run it on any box. It has to be on when you want to access your media. And it doesn't run as a service, so some user has to be logged in. But that's about it.
