TimeMachiner. Tech, culture, nostalgia. By Aaron Crocco

Hello and a good Tuesday to everyone! For those who celebrate, happy Apple March Event Day. 😉 I, for one, am always excited to see what Apple reveals during their events. I find the March one especially interesting because it doesn't always have a set agenda. That lineup uncertainty adds a bit of mystery.

This past week I was elated to begin season 2 of Star Trek: Picard. With only one episode so far, I am already excited to see what is going to happen. The show looks to be setting up some big storylines. For the bibliophiles out there, I've switched reading gears and have dived into The Paradox Hotel. This new release is an interesting crime/police procedural story within a time travel setting. I don't want to say too much, but you can look it up on Goodreads or any other book site to find out more.

What are you watching or reading this week? Hit reply and let me know.

Have a good week.
