TimeMachiner. Tech, culture, nostalgia. By Aaron Crocco
The Stream

Hi everyone and happy Saturday. We made it to the weekend and slowly, but surely, we're finally experiencing some glimmers of spring here in the northeast.

This past week was one of accomplishment. I finished The Paradox Hotel on my Kindle and really liked it. I don't want to give too much away, but if you enjoy some mystery and sci-fi in a lighthearted setting, this book may be for you.

Today's issue brings three interesting things I found this week, one of which continues a thread I wrote about in the last issue. One thing I didn't include was Apple's announcement of WWDC in June will be 99% online only again this year. I figure it's not newsworthy enough this time around and I do wonder if there will be a trend of events being virtual from the start, similar to how Nintendo does it with their Directs.

Onto today's factoid:

"Buffalo buffalo Buffalo buffalo buffalo buffalo Buffalo buffalo" is a grammatically correct sentence.

Either way, I hope you enjoy today's issue. I'll see you on Tuesday.

Man REALLY Wants Comcast Internet
A weird story coming out of Ars Technica this past week involves a Washington state man and the lengths to which he went to get Comcast internet at his house. Jonathan Rowny moved to Washington and thought he could get Comcast internet. Unbeknownst to him, their address checker was wrong.…
