Nintendo games update: Terrifying NES news could haunt Nintendo Switch owners by

This is some absolutely horrible click bait. It has nothing to do with the Switch, nor could it ever. I didn't even bother sharing the link but people are using NES cartridges to smuggle things across the border. One such bust included Spiders, and they're certainly not going to be able to store things inside Switch cartridges.

An actually decent article about Google's new direction from The Verge

I love this quote "the Pixel fits in the high-end Android market precisely where Samsung’s exploding Note 7s left a hole."

This article seems to gloss over the benefits of the Pixel Phones.

- Not having bloatware from OEM and carrier
- First to have the latest version of Android
- Advanced Gyro sensor built into phone, instead of VR headset, which is why Google's VR is cheaper than Samsung's
- That very same advanced Gyro sensor negates the need for OIS as it provides precise movement tracking 200 times per second
- It has Google assistant
- It comes with unlimited cloud storage for full size images and 4K video
- from anyone who's actually held the phone it offers build quality on par with Apple and Samsung
-It has the highest rated camera according to DxOmark

It certainly has enough to justify equal pricing to Samsung and Apple.

But I agree it certainly won't sell as many this generation as they're competition, but that has everything to do with people just buying what they know and what everyone else has and not because of them being a higher quality product.

But I disagree it will be a flop.
It's lacking a lot of things the competition has but is priced with the competition. This phone will flop, but Google will learn and improve it.

I'm going to go ahead and disagree with this.

First, people actually like escaping reality, VR does this well, AR does not.

AR will very much be akin to smartphones, its use will be very prolific. But to say its the future is akin to saying a smartphone is the only computer you need. And while a smartphone may be my most used computing device, sometimes I just want to sit in from of a big display with a keyboard and mouse and get immersed in what I'm doing, same will be true for VR.

Also to say VR is anti social shows a lack of vision for where VR can go. I could theoretically meet with my friend on the other side of the world face to face in a virtual world. Or I could be on a business trip and play a game of catch with my son back home. In what way is this anti social?

Quite possibly the funniest picture I've ever seen. Bonus points for Jared Leto. Just perfect. Whoever spotted it is a genius.
