Nintendo Is Releasing a Mini NES With 30 Integrated Games

Screen Shot 2016-07-19 at 7.38.34 AM

There’s a huge retro-gaming market for people my age, born in the early 80’s who spent their childhood playing NES and SNES games. Nintendo is clearly aware of this, so they’re about to capitalize on that by releasing the NES Classic Edition. It’s a palm-sized version of the old console which comes preloaded with 30 games, which means no fussing around with large cartridges that you had to blow into constantly just to get them to play! You just have to plug the machine into your TV’s HDMI port and play away. The game roster includes classics like all three Marios, Punch-Out, both Zeldas and Metroid. It’s going to cost all of $60 and comes in time for the Holidays with a release date of November 11.

This Celestial Fireworks Bracelet Is Perfect For The Geek In Your Life

led-star-bracelet

With the amount of beauty right here on Earth, it’s sometimes easy to forget just how amazing outer space can be. Fortunately for us, the good folks at NASA have the Hubble Telescope pointed at the stars, capturing amazing images like the one used on this Celestial Fireworks Bracelet.

This Celestial Fireworks Bracelet celebrates a spectacular image captured by NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope of Westerlund 2, a cluster in the constellation Carina. (It’s 20,000 light years away, so this image really is that old.) On its own, it’s a gorgeous image, but we’ve highlighted the young star cluster’s sparkle by adding 15 tiny twinkling white LED lights to represent more foreground stars. They’re powered by a rechargeable battery; the hinged bangle ships with a proprietary USB charging cable to keep it entwinkling. But there’s an on/off button, too, in case you prefer it dark. Either way, it’s a fabulous tribute to the magnificence that is space and mankind’s exploration of it.

A single charge can have the bracelet twinkling for up to 8 hours at a time. It weighs 3.2 oz. and costs all of $60.

Spot It: There’s A Cellphone On This Rug

cell-phone-on-rug

Let’s play a game of Where’s Waldo, only now we’re looking for something else. On the picture above there is a table, a rug and a cellphone. Only you’re not going to find the cellphone. At least we don’t think you will, not without a hint. If you do, you got some skills, hermano. It’s a picture taken by Facebooker Jeya May Cruz and has gone completely viral, even appearing on mainstream TV shows, like the Today Show. She claims she just dropped her phone and couldn’t find it… but then how did she take this picture? It’s not like anyone has standalone cameras anymore. We say she planted it there, knowing full well the firestorm she would ignite. Well played, Jeya, well played. Ok so… where is it?

SPOILER ALERT. Don’t keep reading if you want to find it on your own.

Look just to the right of the right table leg. See it? It’s face down with a flower pattern case. No, really, it’s there.

Ok, we’re done here. Carry on.

5 Tips to Create a Successful Tech Blog

successful-tech-blog

Featured Post. -Ed.

The tech industry is one of the most attractive markets for bloggers to venture into, and for good reason.

At the same time, with so many tech bloggers out there, it gets challenging to set yourself apart from all the others. Additionally, tech bloggers also often find themselves trying to figure out where to focus because the industry is just too broad to do everything.

Below are some tips that can help newbie tech bloggers as they work to find their footing.

Know Your Stuff
The tech industry is fascinating, but if you are wondering how to create a blog people are going to read, the very best thing you can do is make sure you know what you’re talking about. Readers of these blogs want someone who’s an absolute authority and can effectively tell them the details of the topics and products they’re covering.
