Welcome to our Thanksgiving holiday blowout special. To be perfectly honest, there’s not a ton of news this week but what we lack in news we make up for in general fucking off.
Level one is technology news, where we cover Firefox 64, the new Xbox casual model, Hulu Plus for Wii U, HPs fourth quarter earnings and what was really going on with that Warner Brothers app. From there we head to level two, entertainment news. More Star Wars, Deus Ex and Hobbit talk takes the stand. A little chatting about Thor 2 and the future of Community before our Drinks at the Inn segment. The news list might seem short this week but we promise it’s worth the listen.
