What's inside the new nintendo nes classic that was release today?

It's too bad Nintendo dropped the ball. What's with that midget controller cord? They also only released a few so they are all sold out everywhere. Well they knew it would be popular, but they forgot their audience is a lot older now and don't care for that oh we'll make them wait nonsense that they used to do back then too, if I recall. Anyway, I couldn't afford one back then but I always enjoyed the games whenever I could sneak into an arcade close to my house and play a quarter or two. Let's just say playing video games was frowned upon at my place. Thankfully I got all the gaming out of my system when I was younger. So I wanted to check this out and of course no one had it.

I figured what the heck, maybe I'll just make one now since I know many people have done that already with their 3d printers and a few other parts. Well at least I have another good reason to fix  my 3d printer again. One more thing, what's with the proprietary plugs? I guess they haven't learned their lesson yet. I can see why they do that, but it's hard not to hate proprietary plugs nowadays. And not to include a second controller, well that's just wrong. So if you add the 59.99 price to the 10.00 dollar extra controller, plus some extension, and then tax. This thing is getting pretty pricey. But if you can just hook it up to the computer in front of you and you're the only one using it, then that shouldn't be too much. Otherwise it may be a bit misleading at first. I guess I'm older and have to look at everything now.

Internet of things and security

This is a really good article because there are some many things coming out of China that could fit into this category. By this I mean things like cell phones. They come out with very nice hardware too, but unfortunately many of those phones can't even be updated.

Multiple window file manager

Lately I've been having to open two file manager windows side by side. It's not a problem as I am used to it and I'm sure most are too, but I read a comment on a youtube video and I found this page on different file managers. It sounded interesting as I'm having to check more than one document or something from a network drive to copy or move. So if you're interested in something similar here you go. I have yet to test one, but I'll definitely check it out. Oh and what I like about this page is that it covers all three systems. Windows, Mac and Linux so you may find something there. Oh, at times my windows file manager just seems to get stuck so this is the other reason I thought I check these out.
