The Ataribox Console what is it?

    Somewhat unexpectedly, we've got our first look at Atari's new console.
    The video game company recently showed us a few pictures of the "Ataribox," and the few details that we do have raise,
    even more, questions than we had before.
    The box has four USB ports, a slot for an SD card, HDMI, and ethernet. A newsletter from Atari promises that it will play "classic"
    as well as "current" content and that it will come with "modern internal specs."
    What that means, at the end of the day, is anybody's guess: all three of those phrases come with what you might call a wide degree of interpretation.

    {"alt":"Click image for larger version Name:\t6517dc55-7833-4007-a611-006d3efc6fa9-1200x674.jpg Views:\t1 Size:\t17.5 KB ID:\t656777","data-align":"center","data-attachmentid":"656777","data-size":"custom","height":"289","title":"6517dc55-7833-4007-a611-006d3efc6fa9-1200x674.jpg","width":"515"}

    At first blush, the Ataribox would seem to be an obvious attempt to ride the coattails of the mini NES Classic Edition and cash in on what we could now call a retro gaming hardware craze. The more we learn, however, the more it's clear that it's something different entirely. This is evident right from the form factor: while the NES Classic Edition sought only to recreate the shape of the original console in a more compact package, the Atarixbox seeks to recreate the feeling of the original console with modern flair. That's in line with the idea that the machine will also play "current" content, though again that could mean really anything.

    • New Android TV dongle passes through the FCC with Google Logo, Assistant enabled remote and Oreo on board

      If you’re a keen watcher of the US Federal Communications Commission (FCC), then a new device from Shenzhen SEI Robotics Co., Ltd. labelled a ‘4K ATV Stick’ will probably have piqued your interest, with the external photos showing off a HDMI dongle, with Google Logo running the latest version of Android TV and with a Google Assistant enabled voice remote.

      Google has banned the term “Kodi” from its autocomplete feature, meaning those who look for information on the set-top box will have to type out the full term in order to search, as reported by TorrentFreak. Google has been increasing its anti-piracy efforts in recent years, banning terms from autocomplete and making changes to its search algorithms in order to demote copyright-infringing material.

      While Kodi is legal software in a set-top box for streaming, it supports a myriad of

    • Google starts blocking its apps on uncertified Android devices
      If you're fond of loading custom ROMs on your Android phone, life just became complicated. Google has quietly started blocking access to its apps on uncertified devices whose firmware was built after March 16th. If you're affected, you'll get a warning that a device is "not certified" and can't sign into a Google account. This won't prevent you from loading ROMs, but you'll have to register your device IDs on a white list every time you undergo a factory reset -- when there's a 100-ID...
