how to make your own snes classic

considering their inability to meet consumer demands, one might think that nintendo uses ground unicorn horn in the manufacturing of their hardware. perhaps you were unable to get you mitts on an snes or nes classic. or maybe you are just thinking the price tag is too high for a paltry 20-some-odd games. well, there is another option. for less than the cost of a nintendo classic system you can build a raspberry pi system which will play all the retro games your heart could possible desire. i built my own and slapped that puppy in an old nes case and it's everything i hoped it would be and more. i have it loaded with every nes, snes, master system, and turbografx game ever released. quite simply, i love this handcrafted retro gaming powerhou...

a brief tour of apple park's visitor center

apple park is breathtaking: minimalist, austere, zen. the main building curves through the campus and above the trees, a ring of glass and solar panels that disappears behind the rolling hills one moment only to rise up and fill your field of view the next.that's how it looked to me during apple's september event, when i and a few hundred of my closest media friends got to an early look at the public and press-facing parts of the new campus.the orchards are still growing in, but it's easy to see them, and the paths that meander around and in between, will be a welcome home to fruit, birds, and runners. no sign of a vineyard, though. at least not yet.apple park is technically located at 1 apple park way in cupertino, california not far fro...

how my iphone x fared at the happiest place on earth

like techcrunch's matthew panzarino, i'm an avid disneyland fan. and since my iphone x arrived just four days before i was set to go on a trip to the happiest place on earth, i decided it was the perfect time to put it through a rigorous day at the park. a full day trip at a theme park is often where the average person pushes their phone to its limits. we use it to take pictures and videos, find location-based apps to look up wait times, play games while waiting in line, and more. it gets banged around in our backpack as we hop from ride to ride, gets soaked on water rides, and suffers the indignities of being left behind on tabletops as we rush to the next adventure.there are very few circumstances under which the average iphone user wou...
