The Flawed Logic in Not Upgrading Technology

· Jeff Gamet · Link

The new 10.5-inch and 12.9-inch iPad Pro are pretty impressive, but Ashraf Eassa at The Motley Fool thinks upgrading to one is a bad idea. His reasoning: an even better model will come out next year. Of course there’s a new model coming and it’ll have new and better features.

Atari Revives Retro Gaming Console Ataribox

· Andrew Orr · Cool Stuff Found

Just like Nintendo is resurrecting the NES Mini and SNES Mini, so too is Atari bringing back its own gaming console. Design-wise, the Ataribox takes design inspiration from the Atari 2600. One model has the familiar black and wood design, while the other has black with red accents. Both have the raised back and ribbing, with glass and wood finishes for the front. The rest of the specs are all modern. The Ataribox will come with an HDMI port, four USB ports, and SD card expansion slots, which may hint that Atari will allow sideloading. More detailed internals haven’t been released yet, but Atari promises to stuff it full of “modern internal specs” to support “current gaming content.” Pricing and release date information haven’t been released either, and Atari says they want to “get this right” before they make any more announcements.
