A lot of TVs
2018 is already starting to look like a bumper year for Sony’s Bravia televisions, with a wide range of both high and lower-end sets, from the entry-point 4K XF80 / XF85 TVs all the way up to Sony’s latest AF8 OLED, released this month.

At some point in the future, while riding along in a car, a kid may ask their parent about a distant time in the past when people used steering wheels and pedals to control an automobile.

Rejoice Nintendo fans: the Japanese gaming giant is bringing the NES Classic back to retail stores this summer.
Nintendo said the console will go on sale again across the U.S. on June 29, with the SNES Classic also set to be available until the end of this year. It isn’t clear what the situation will be outside of the U.S., however.

Review: The NES Classic Edition and all 30 games on it
The company originally killed off the hit NES Classic Edition with an announcement last April and it had originally said that the SNES version would not live beyond 2017. The NES system was a surprise hit last year, but the SNES version was even more popular. Nintendo previously revealed that it sold more on launch day in August than the NES sold in the whole of last year.
“Fans have shown their unbridled enthusiasm for these Classic Edition systems, so Nintendo is working to put many more of them on store shelves,” Nintendo said last year.
The two classic systems are part of a new focus for Nintendo, which includes the top-selling Switch console and its first moves into mobile gaming via Pokémon GO and Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp. The company recently clocked impressive financial returns — including a 500 percent jump in annual profit — as the strategy begins to pay off.

For going on dual decades, we’ve been fighting a good fight, explaining to anyone who will listen that those kilobytes, megabytes, or gigabytes of RAM in your PC—the things that binds information temporarily while it’s being worked on—should be called system memory.
