Apple has sent out invitations to members of the press and other guests for a March 25 “special event,” featuring the words “it’s show time.” That’s interesting because Apple used the same tagline back in 2006 (hey kids, remember 2006?) for an event that led to the unveiling of the Apple TV device. The language and references points to a possible announcement of the company’s long-rumored streaming TV service that might be the event’s main focused.Continue reading “Circle March 25th, ’cause Apple’s has a (likely) Streaming Service Announcement Coming…”
Gizmodo recently released a video and write-up on the E-Waste Warehouse, which has been helping the people of New York dispose of their unwanted electronic devices in an eco-friendly way.

I suppose that the old adage is true: If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again; some things, however, should just be left alone as God’s way of saying “this is not to be.” For the — say it with me now — THIRD TIME, NBC will be adapting the hit UK Channel 4 show, The IT Crowd. If you think this sounds familiar, it’s because in 2007 NBC (after their success with another BBC hit, The Office) made a pilot staring Joel McHale, Richard Ayoade (from the original show) and Jessica St. Clair, and tried again in 2014 (which went nowhere). I suppose this also proves that even adapting one project into a new project can involve some “turning it off and on again;” Lord knows how many IT tickets I’ve personally encountered when THAT was the solution… Continue reading “NBC is, AGAIN, Trying to Adapt UK Tech Support Sitcom ‘The IT Crowd’…”

Many of us know (and believe) that the first video game console Sony made was the PlayStation. However, he truth is that the PlayStation was actually Sony’s first console that they released. It turns out that before the PlayStation (even before their ill-fated collaboration with Nintendo) was, this lovely piece of gaming tech. This console,simply labeled as “Prototype TV Game Machine”) used — or WOULD HAVE used — cards and cartridges, and since this console dates to the 1970’s, the games would have likely been relatively simple. However, if you want a Japanese write-up on the exhibition it was shown at, here you go. Continue reading “Sony FINALLY Releases Their 1970’s Console Prototype”
