For the summer we’re going to move to an every-other week schedule for a bit as an experiment. Let us know what you think!
- Video releases
- Lightning Round
- Nintento Famicon turns 30, better known in the US as the Nintendo Entertainment System
- You gotta be kidding me: A Nashville TN man has sued Apple because the Safari browser allows him to view porn (I guess that whole personal responsibility thing is for other people)
- The Kremlin is going back to typewriters to prevent security leaks. Seriously. Moscow Times said so.
- Apparently Microsoft is also trying to sell XBox One to businesses as a cheap video conference solution with Skype integration, Office 365 web apps, and the ability to stream from a tablet to the box.
- PC sales have declined 5 quarters in a row according to IDC and Gartner, down 10-12%
- Nokia announced the Lumia 1080, which is really just the 920 with…wait for it…a 41 MEGAPIXEL camera, with app that allows manual adjustment of ISO, aperture, and shutter speed
- You can’t make this up: July 2nd launch of Proton-M rocket carrying three satelites for the GLONASS Navigation system (Russian GPS) crashed after 6-1/2 minutes of flight because “critical angular velocity sensors, DUS, installed upside down”
- Surface RT prices drop: $349 for 32gb, $449 for 64gb model, not including cover. Permanent, or clearing inventory?
- Acer, one of the few PC makers that actually sold Windows machines with Thunderbolt ports, is ditching them for USB 3
- Here’s a 3D scanning program for OS X…that uses the Kinect? (link)
- Apple has released Logic Pro X, same price as 9 at $199, in the Mac App Store. Sounds like they learned from FInal Cut Pro X, no missing features reported
- Headaches for the mega-blockbuster
- Hyperloop – what the heck is Musk on about this time? (link1) (link2)
