“The Game Console” is THE Video Game Book for Gamers Who Stare at Consoles…

…not TOO MUCH unlike the Men Who Stare At Goats. Anyways, Evan Amos wasn’t happy with the lackluster image quality of gaming console Wikipedia, so he started taking and sharing pictures of his own consoles. This venture of passion would lead to Amos to create The Game Console: A Photographic History from Atari To Xbox. Amos’ book, now available for purchase from physical and digital bookstores, is a wonderful hardbound tome consisting of 250 pages of video game systems from the first generation (the Magnavox Odyssey, Pong consoles, etc.) all the was through to the current, eighth generation of game consoles.

Check out this Small Home in San Jose; it’s Currently Going For $798K…

The outside environment isn’t too shabby, either; the front patio has plenty of room for outdoor furniture, and a large backyard with fruit trees and drought-resistant landscaping, a pergola for outdoor dining, and even a hot tub.

A new ruling recently passed by the Library of Congress now covers technologies and electronics of many, MANY types, ranging from consumer electronics to farming equipment and online education platforms and 3D printings. This new ruling essentially provides exemptions to the — dismal and frustrating, if you’re a techie — Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA), which was INTENDED to prevent copyright policy, but was too broad and overreached too a point where it allowed questionable restrictions on repairing/updating/modding your own electronics to online content takedowns.
