  1. Yeah! Rock the AsianCast!! Let me know if you need a Korean third for next time.

    Also, I didn’t realize it before, but Jeremy and Steve have similar accents. Did y’all grow up in the same region?

  2. You want to continue the Batman but with something other than Bruce? Why not Batman Beyond? That cartoon series was SO GOOD!!!

  3. Tested RULES…. but for the love of all things big and small… PLEASE get rid of the plastic wrap on the Lego man !!!! It bugs the HELL out of me!!!!!

  4. That was very impressive that some fans can distinguish between real old NES audio and software emulated NES audio!!

    also the linux angle fascinates me. if you told me twenty years ago that nintendo would sell a linux-based miniature console emulator i would not have believed it. they went from a 8 bit 6502 MOS chip to a quad core 32 bit Allwinner ARM chip. inside this box is the story of world technology history in 2 decades!

  5. ahh let Nokia bring back the original 3310 I would happily bin my apple for it. those phones are amazing battery wasn’t a problem the thing never broke. and the default ring tone and snake the game r just amazing. people also were friendly and productive in work as they weren’t checking Facebook every 5 minutes.

  6. I’ll absolutely be buying a 3310 for my wife if it comes out. She only uses her phone for calls, not even SMS. It’s a perfect match… Now the next trick will be what’s going on with the major carriers? Will they be willing to do a voice only plan? Right now Verizon is grumpy about it, will that always be the case?

  7. Quarters over the internet for people to do their laundry. So crazy it would work. The 2.0 update will add quarters for grocery carts.
