Topic 1 – Super Nintendo Classic Mini

The SNES mini is out and it’s great, same hardware as the NES mini, with longer cables for the controllers, and they actually made enough for people to buy this time.

Topic 2 – The Murder Of Kim Wall

Amateur inventor, engineer, submariner and rocket scientist Peter Madsen was being interviewed by reporter Kim Wall on board his midget submarine. She never returned from the meeting. After claiming he had safely dropped her off on shore her torso was found washed up on a beach. He now claims it was an accident and he’d tried to bury her at sea. We take a look at this crazy and sad story.

Topic 3 – Google’s New Hardware

Google unveiled its new pixel phone, and its basically way better than the apple iphone x. There’s also a new tablet/laptop, the pixelbook, and a new mini version of google home. The big story was the wireless pixel buds, earphones that are integrated with google translate allowing voice inputs to be translated in real time and spoken words to be output from the phone speaker in one of 50 languages. Basically the Babel fish from hitchhikers guide to the galaxy.

Topic 4 – Blade Runner 2049

The long awaited sequel to Ali’s favourite movie, with director Denis Villeneuve, starring Harrison Ford, Ryan Gosling, Dave Bautista, and Jared Leto among others. Here’s a non spoiler review, it’s basically great and worth watching.
