Had you asked me 150 episodes ago what we would be talking about on this show, I probably wouldn’t of said “horse mustaches” yet here we are. We balance it out with some Blade runner talk as well before we get to the news wrapping up with the massive piracy of Star Trek Discovery. In the news this week
Disney Forced ABC to Renew Agents of Shield
Production is well underway on the fifth season of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., though a new report claims it almost didn’t happen. But, when it comes to these decisions, Disney trumps ABC — and the Mouse House may have saved these Marvel heroes in the nick of time.
SNES Mini Released
The NES mini was a huge success, but very much a first effort from Nintendo ripe for improvement. Fine for more casual gamers, the experience for enthusiasts was let down by flaws including subpar video scaling, ultra-short controller cords, audio lag and a range of minor emulation issues. The good news is that Nintendo has improved the quality of its emulation, successfully simulated a range of custom, cart-specific hardware in the process and done it all using the same cheap mobile chipset as its predecessor. It’s an ambitious effort for sure, but to what extent does it accurately match original hardware?
Twitter is Doubling it’s Character Limit
Twitter is experimenting with doubling the length of a tweet from 140 characters to 280 characters. The company wrote in a blog post on Tuesday it was rolling out 280-character limit tweets to “a small group” of users who tweet in languages that may have had issues with trying to fit everything they want to say. “We understand since many of you have been Tweeting for years, there may be an emotional attachment to 140 characters – we felt it, too,” Twitter product manager Aliza Rosen wrote. “But we tried this, saw the power of what it will do, and fell in love with this new, still brief, constraint.”
Burger King Russia trying to ban “IT”
The big screen adaptation of Stephen King‘s It has been busting box office records here in America, and has been doing pretty well overseas, too. That said, one country has slapped Pennywise the Dancing Clown with an adversary far more formidable than the Losers’ Club: Russian Burger King. It seems that Burger King has filed a claim in Russian court to get It banned from national screens.
Star Trek Discovery is a top Pirated Show
Almost 10 million people tuned in to CBS on Sunday to watch the premiere of Star Trek: Discovery. And the premiere also drove record signups for CBS’ proprietary streaming service, which will be the exclusive source for later episodes of the new Star Trek series.
But others have turned to good old-fashioned Internet piracy to get their Star Trek fix.
The premiere of Star Trek: Discovery is the twelfth most actively pirated show among users of the Pirate Bay right now, according to the Pirate Bay’s list of most downloaded videos. Discovery’s second episode isn’t far behind, at number 19.
