    Really sad. I had just heard him on the "I Hear Voices" podcast with the Kim Possible voice actors. Would recommend and his episode was great.

    This might just drag me kicking and screaming to Peacock along with The Office Superfan episodes. Anyone genuinely getting a lot of use from Peacock?

    How do we feel about this? At this point, Darth Vader can live completely outside any specific actor’s involvement.

    You.com is looking pretty promising. It's in beta at the moment. However, it is privacy-focused while still retaining lots of neat features.

    But NOT 8BitDo Pro 2. For some reason it does not jive well, at least with my unit. It tries and fails at emulating a Dualshock contoller with Apple TV (very solid controller otherwise).

    I’ve played every single Battlefield game from the beginning and I’ll say that they have some work to do for sure on 2041. Not just with bugs and glitches but I think the specialist system is a misfire and takes away what makes BF unique (squad-play). I’ll reserve judgment until release but I think it needs more than polish. That said I did have some fun with the beta.

    +1 for PowerToys. They also have some other useful tools like PowerRename (rename files in bulk), Image Resizer (resize images from explorer) and PowerToys Run (a very quick launcher).

    Though I was hoping for a more substantial and realistic open-world PoT game, this seems like an exciting idea. Looking forward to it!

    I was just about to post this exact story! Great and interesting find. As a non-drinker I’m fascinated at both the analysis of why people drink today and why they drank in the distant past.

    I’m not sure how I feel about this article and am looking for some input from others. While I think it’s important to accommodate non-native speakers in a conversation, the author at certain points seems to suggest the globalization of English requires that it be broken down to its basest meanings. Disclosure: I am a native speaker from birth. Thoughts?

    I'm glad this is happening and Edge is definitely picking up steam, so hopefully this will make a meaningful difference in the truthfulness in journalism!

    I guess I'll kick off the discussion. I've always thought this was a fantastic idea and it's really important to know the reliability of news sources. Problem is that the people that need this most aren't going to seek it out and pay for it. I know it has to produce value for the company somehow, but this doesn't seem like the way to go.
