Evening Reading - October 7, 2020

It's night time in America, which means it is time for Shacknews Evening Reading.


Evening, Shacknews. My calendar tells me it's Wednesday night in Americaland. Good work on making it halfway through the week! Hopefully it's a sweet slide into the weekend for you. But, before you get there, remember to register to vote! Do it now! When that's all squared away, come with me and let's read some Shacknews articles and then look at some memes.

In case you missed it at Shacknews:

And now... Other Stuff From The Internet!!!

Lort of the Rings in 4K UHD

It's time to get excited all you Lord of the Rings fans out there. Peter Jackson has been hard at work on a 4K UHD version of the Lord of the Rings. This is likely going to be big. Get those TVs ready and your Blu-ray players.

Let's see how you lie the Series X down flat

Phew, that looks tough. Xbox at it again poking fun at Sony. As Michael Scott would say, "Well, well, well, how the turntables..." The fact you need a screwdriver to reposition the PS5 is so silly. Why couldn't it just have a flat side?

Horror Switch

Depending on the gathering, it's either a rave switch or a horror switch.

A thread on The Age of Remote Working

Some interesting stats and thoughts expressed in here.

Werner Herzog on speaking other languages

That is quite a strong distaste for French.

Thread of TikTok games

The imagination of bored teenagers is incredible.

Good numbers mean little

Get out and vote!

Stanley tells off the President

You tell him, Stanley!
