Nintendo's Tiny New NES Is a Blast From the Past

Just last year I got back into some of the vintage NES games from my childhood by setting up a Raspberry Pi as an emulator. Nintendo's NES Classic Edition seems to be aimed at people who are like me, except they don't want to bother with the hassle of setting up a mini computer to do the job of a gaming console. At $60, you get the console, one controller, and 30 pre-loaded games. When you consider the price of even one modern video game, it seems pretty hard to beat!

Twitter Dives Into Live Sports

Earlier this year, Twitter made a $10 Million deal with the NFL to livestream Thursday Night Football games this fall. Today, they've begun testing the new functionality that will presumably be used for that partnership. A new page is live with a Wimbledon live video stream and a feed of tweets using the Wimbledon hashtag.

Personally, I prefer a two-screen setup, but having this all-in-one view would have been very useful for me a few years back. I can see college students and others who rely heavily on a laptop making the most use of this. And I'd love to see them bring it to awards shows, the World Series, and other events that dominate water cooler conversation. 

Become an Organ Donor in iOS 10

This is a really interesting move, in keeping with Apple's recent trend towards health. I can't help but wonder if Steve Jobs's own liver transplant inspired this feature.

Facebook has been encouraging organ donation since 2013, and just a day after they launched that functionality, Johns Hopkins reported a 21-fold uptick in interest. I can only wonder what impact Apple's feature will have on increasing awareness. Either way, I applaud them for their continued commitment to such noble causes.
