The Analogue Super Nt is the premium 90s retro gaming system

I was lucky enough to grab the much sought-after SNES Classic a couple of weeks ago, and it’s a cool little device for playing a small selection of Super Nintendo games on an HDTV. However, I’m prepared to take 90s gaming to the next level. I’m talking 16-bit games at 1080p and full compatibility with every game in the SNES library.

Amazon introduces their first waterproof Kindle e-book reader

E-ink displays continue to fascinate me. With how they replicate the look of paper, they’re perfect for outdoor reading, since the sun won’t cause any glare on the screen, unlike a cell phone, which is basically impossible to read in the sunlight.

Hidden Golf game built into the Nintendo Switch pays tribute to late Nintendo President

Not every piece of tech news is based on new products. Sometimes some new discoveries crop up in things you might already own, such as when hackers this past weekend discovered a hidden game built into every Nintendo Switch that can be unlocked in a peculiar, yet touching way. Kind of like that weird Snail Maze game that you could play on the Sega Master System by starting the system up without a cartridge and inputting a secret code, the Nintendo Switch was recently found to hold its very own hidden game. The secret game was uncovered in July...
