Nintendo is going to restart production of its insanely popular micro console, the NES Classic Mini, but stock isn’t expected to become available again until the summer of 2018.This announcement follows the news of continued interest in the Super NES Classic Edition, which Nintendo will support with additional stock of that retro system when it begins shipping out on its September 29 launch date.When Nintendo launched the NES Classic Mini in November 2016, no one, Nintendo included, realized what a monumental success it would be.Stock was hard to find even months after launch and then all of a sudden Nintendo announced it would no longer be sold.That sent prices of second-hand versions skyrocketing in response to continued demand.In summer 2018, however, Nintendo may once again be able to capitalize on that popularity.

If you can turn a blind eye to the seemingly endless stream of advertising, this is actually a half-decent tool.The Burn4Free DVD Copy installer uses an irritating download manager which tries to install a couple of unwanted extras, but they are optional if you keep your eyes open.There's plenty to dislike about Burn4Free DVD Copy (see below), but as a basic burning tool, it is at least functional.There are no fancy extras here whatsoever, but you can burn data CDs, DVDs and audio CDs, and work with ISOs.You can create discs in one of two ways.The first option is to use the 'Add' button to browse files on your hard drive and add them to a disc, while the second is to activate the fly window.

When you shop for a phone it’s easy to get dazzled by curved glass or swayed by the big brand logos that’ll make friends jealous.We’re going to run down 10 of these big-hitter features, including reader favourites like the iPhone 7 Plus’s clever ‘zoom’ camera and high-grade water resistance that doesn’t demand you put a rubber flap back in place whenever you unplug your headphones.In the next few years we’ll see developments that will make the iPhone 7 Plus’s second camera look prehistoric, but finally being able to use the camera zoom guilt-free was a big shift.Where most solutions choose to ramp-up the voltage and leave current fairly low, the Dash charger keeps the voltage at 5V but doubles current to four amps.When so many of us use Spotify for our music and Netflix or YouTube for a roving video fix, perhaps it’s overkill, but it is innovation that offers a real benefit if you want peace of mind when downloading apps, saving photos or even just saving Spotify for offline listening.For the first few years, the effect you’d get was so flawed as to appear, quite often, comically bad.

But it appears that, for woolly rhinos, evolution decided “lol, no.”You have seven cervical vertebrae (neck bones) responsible for holding up your head.All mammals seem to have seven cervical vertebrae except for sloths and manatees.Individuals with more or less tend to die.But sometimes, the bottom vertebra grows little rib bones, which are usually harmless themselves but could be a signal that some other things are very wrong, genetically.A new study looking at Coelodonta antiquitati, the extinct woolly rhino from the area that’s now the North Sea and the Netherlands, found that the number of individuals with these cervical ribs was especially high—a condition that probably brought about their demise.

Some of Samuel Fuller’s great war films (screening Sept. 15-24 at the Museum of the Moving Image) are actually postwar films—classic entries in the film-noir genre that highlight the trauma, the fear, and the corruption caused by combat, conquest, and occupation.In “House of Bamboo,” from 1955, Fuller sets the action in Japan—it was the first postwar Hollywood movie to be shot on location there—and centers the drama on a crime ring of American veterans who are hoping to cash in on the turmoil of the country’s reconstruction.Robert Ryan plays the head of the ring, who runs his outfit with a military discipline and whose tentacular access to valuable information reaches to the core of the American government.Robert Stack, tense and square-jawed, plays another hardboiled American, who gets beaten up for competing with the ring but ends up joining it—and finding more profit in informing on it than in participating in it.Filming in CinemaScope and Technicolor, Fuller offers a virtual travelogue of Tokyo street life that teems with gangland insiders ready to jump at orders from their American boss.Meanwhile, lingering resentments fuel local hostility toward Japanese women who become romantically involved with the American occupiers; one such woman, Mariko (Shirley Yamaguchi), proves crucial to the crisscrossing plotlines, and the gangsters’ reference to her not by name but as “the kimono” shows the contempt in which such women were held by the occupiers as well.

Citing census data, an equity research analyst claims Facebook is once again inflating one of its key metrics, this time grossly over-reporting its ability to sell ads and effectively inventing millions more young Americans than actually exist.Facebook told advertisers that the platform can potentially “reach” 41 million young adults between 18 and 24 in the US.Brian Wieser of Pivotal Research Group countered by pointing out that 2016 census data shows there were only 31 million people in that age range in the US.Similarly, Facebook claims it can reach 60 million people in the US between 25 and 34 years old.The census reports 45 million in that age group.Alongside his findings, Wieser called for greater transparency in “reach” calculations and called for Facebook to double check its numbers against audits from third-party partners.

It looks like the rooftop running track could be the new office slide for tech companies with big budgets.London architects Allford Hall Monaghan Morris (AHMM) has brought the first rooftop track to an office in east London — but there have been several hiccups along the way.The story of AHMM's rooftop running track dates back to 2013.Camden Council approved a new AHMM-designed Google headquarters complete with a rooftop running track in King's Cross that September.But Google cofounder Larry Page scrapped all of AHMM's plans — including the rooftop track — in 2015 because they were too boring, according to The Daily Mail.Google is now working with Thomas Heatherwick and BIG (Bjarke Ingels Group) on the new office, which is several years behind schedule.

Off the top of your head, tell me the automaker that you think would build some pretty gnarly racecars.Mini will debut the John Cooper Works GP Concept at the Frankfurt Motor Show next week.As the name suggests, and as the images will very clearly spell out, this is Mini's vision for a hardcore racecar.It's a spiritual successor to two different Mini models -- the 2012 JCW GP and the 2006 Mini Cooper S with the JCW GP Kit.While those cars were actually built, this is just a concept, so things can get a bit... wilder.A new body kit widens the Mini considerably, with very aggressive bumpers, wide side skirts and a wing that looks like it could push the car through to the center of the planet.

Indiana Jones will make his return to theaters in 2020.The character that Shia LaBeouf played in the 2008 "Kingdom of the Crystal Skull" has been purposely left out of the next film, according to screenwriter David Koepp."Harrison plays Indiana Jones, that I can certainly say," Koepp told Entertainment Weekly on Monday."And the Shia LaBeouf character is not in the film."In October 2016, retired filmmaker George Lucas (who created the character and was heavily immersed in all previous Indiana Jones scripts) announced his decision not to involve himself in the next Indiana Jones film, other than remaining an executive producer.The exclusion of LaBeouf from the upcoming film won't come as a complete shock to Indiana Jones fans, who might recall the actor's defensive reaction to mixed reviews from critics of "Kingdom of the Crystal Skull."

In a sea of rectangles with round edges, the Moto X lineup has been a breath of fresh air for smartphone fans looking to separate themselves from the pack.Motorola’s X lineup has always been about customization, allowing users to choose from a variety of different color combinations and even exotic materials like different leathers and woods.In 2017, the Moto X lineup finally gets the big refresh many Android fans have been waiting for.The new Moto X4 model indeed updates the Moto X design identity to better align with newer Motorola phones like the Moto Z2 Force and Moto Z2 Play, but Motorola made an interesting decision about the Moto X line when developing the new Moto X4.The ability to customize your phone to your tastes — the spotlight feature of earlier Moto X phones — has been abandoned entirely.Rather than offer a vast array of customization features, Motorola chose instead to shift its focus to another key area: the phone’s camera.

It’s a brand new day for Uber, the transportation startup that has been caught up in a whirlwind of drama ranging from sexual harassment and culture issues to an absence of C-level leaders to a lawsuit with Waymo.At an all-hands meeting today, Uber employees met their new leader: Dara Khosrowshahi, the former CEO of Expedia, who discussed a number of things, including how Uber should go public within the next 18 to 36 months, according to The Information’s Amir Efrati, and how he has the support of former CEO Travis Kalanick.Khosrowshahi’s official first day is Tuesday, Sept. 5, but he still gave employees a taste of what to expect.For starters, his plan is to “pay the bills,” focus on the core businesses and “take big shots” in building for the future, Khosrowshahi said via some tweets from Uber’s communications team this morning.Khosrowshahi later mentioned that culture needs to be written from the bottom up, rather than pushed down from the top.In a throwback to Uber’s shaky past, Khosrowshahi spoke about change.
