Nostalgic console gaming
The Internet Archive isn't content just to store old websites, but has now created its own Console Living Room.
It's basically really old games from consoles like the Atari 2600, playable in browser emulators. Pretty neat and sure to bring tears of nostalgia to the eyes of those old enough to remember using one.
What's not to like about retro gaming fun that is free as well as not needing extra software installations?
Amazon finds lots of Christmas cheerBGR]
Lots of Christmas joy over at Amazon as it cheerfully announces its new sales records. The company managed to sell 426 items a second on this week's Cyber Monday, while it also proved a good time for its Kindle devices.
Amazon's coy on actual sale figures for the Kindle but Amazon said its Kindle Fire HD, Kindle Fire HDX 7" and Kindle Fire HDX 8.9" were the bestselling tablets on the site. Where laptops were concerned, the top three were the Samsung Chromebook, ASUS Transformer Book and the Acer Chromebook. Samsung TVs took all the top spots in the TV category with its bestsellers being the 32” Smart LED HTDV, Samsung 40” LED HDTV and the Samsung 22” Slim LED HDTV.
Fun fact: Between Thanksgiving and Cyber Monday, Amazon said its customers ordered more than five toys per second from a mobile device.
