In a show of sensitivity carefully plotted nine month ago, the $2.2 billion Seattle-based sporting goods co-op is officially opting out of the shopping madness the day after Thanksgiving this year.In a touching email dispatched to its 5.5 million co-op members yesterday, the company pledged to keep its doors closed on Nov. 27, the day when all hell breaks loose at malls across America, sometimes fatally.That’s right: All 143 of REI’s retail locations, along with its headquarters and distribution centers, will not be open for business.The same goes for Thanksgiving Day, too.Gee willikers, Charlie Brown would be proud.Instead, they’ll shake a leg in the Great Outdoors to “reconnect with family and friends…” (We’re sure none of them will Netflix and chill, lazily riding out the tryptophan crash, like we can’t wait to do.)

And, as fans of the movie franchise know, these spoofs are of the affectionate variety, created out of reverence for the films rather than to mock them – most of the time, anyway.You could spend days trawling through the endless parade of spoof videos on YouTube, ranging from Robot Chicken to Family Guy to Community.If there was a prize for completeness of a parody, then without doubt the award would go to the Blue Harvest episode of Family Guy.In the episode the electricity goes out, so Peter retells his family the story of A New Hope, with the show's characters playing the leading roles – Chris is Luke, Peter is Han, Brian is Chewbacca – and Stewie is Vader, of course.Various episodes of The SimpsonsThe Simpsons first hit our screens four years after the release of Return of the Jedi, and by the time The Phantom Menace was released we were reaching the point where the show's decline began Simpsons nerds tend to agree it was around Season 12 .

A heads-up display, which projects information such as the car's speed and battery life in front of the driver, could prevent drivers from looking at the 15ins display while driving and therefore help them focus on the road.Despite its focus on autonomous technology, the driving experience in the Model 3 “remains enjoyably analogue”, says Car magazine, while the vehicle's acceleration performance easily matches its more expensive sibling, the Model S.Drivers may find themselves using only their right foot to drive the Model 3, thanks to its regenerative braking system, which automatically applies the brakes when coasting in order to charge battery.The batteries themselves come in two different options, says Top Gear - offering a 220-mile-per-charge range or 310 miles per charge.As there are no dials behind the steering wheel to show your road speed, Mashable says you need to focus on the touchscreen in the centre console to see how fast you're going.TechCrunch concludes that the Model 3 "is a well-designed, mid-sized sedan that managed to simplify the Tesla design ethos with luxury in mind and without making it feel any less a part of the Tesla family."

Google has flicked the switch on the Australian version of YouTube Red , the twelve bucks a month version of the service that features no ads and allows online viewing.If you pony up you also get access to a clutch of YouTube Originals that extend the output of popular YouTubers and look to be aimed squarely at the youth market.Google also throws in a subscription to its streaming music service and folks who already pay for that get YouTube Red gratis.YouTube ads are an endurable irritant and the Originals are not likely to excite many: your correspondent's 14-year-old progeny thinks YouTube-spawned comedian PewDiePie is old hat, while my 11-year-old's ardour is fading.But Vulture South's team cannot imagine that YouTube Red will scare Australia's incumbent paid video providers Foxtel, Stan and Netflix, or make telcos Optus and Telstra feel like their strategies are weak.Sponsored: Make your system highly available and recoverable using PureApplication system
As of July 2 this year, up to six family members can share purchased games and apps with each other. Google calls the function Family Library, and it applies to all purchases after July 2. Developers can choose to split the family also apply to existing purchase, something that Google recommends. If someone else in the family buys an app, you will then be able to use it, and vice versa. We assume that the division will additionally be utilized, for example, a group of friends, then Google can not get to verify that these are just a family.

As part of the letter, Google has asked developers to allow this feature, called Family Library, for previous purchases.It s important to note that developers can indeed decide if they want to enable the feature for past purchases.It s not yet known exactly how the feature will work on the consumer side of things — for example, we have yet to see how Google will verify different family members.It s possible that the same concept will apply to Family Library.The new feature is certainly a welcome one for families with multiple devices.No longer will the kids in the family have to pay to access apps that the parents already have — the feature could also help prevent children from making large purchases without the parents knowledge.
