You can pick this thing up one-handed and it doesnt wobble around that much. The tablet-like body of the Switch is also as equally as sleek in appearance. It has a USB Type-C port on its bottom edge for both charging and as an output to the TV via the included dock. It also has three, reasonably discreet, air vents ports to keep the Switch cool while it’s running. The game card slot is covered with a clippy rubberised flap – which looks flimsy but feels sturdy enough – so, unlike the 3DS, you can’t accidentally eject your game while on the move. Even the microSD card slot is tucked behind the kickstand so that wont be going anywhere accidentally either. Switch’s real ingenuity, however, is contained within each Joy-Con. These rather unassuming controllers are packed with incredible technology. As a pair they function as a motion-enabled controller that is both light and sturdy in the hand.

A button on the body let’s you easily switch between 33 ⅓ and 45 RPM speeds, whilst the heavy rubber mat and anti-vibration base does a great job of ensuring that only the music comes through loud and clear. One nice feature is that you can toggle the built-in phono stage on and off, so you can upgrade to a better-sounding external phono stage in the future. Factor in the easy set up process, upgradability and great sound straight out of the box, and the Audio Technica LP5 is perfect for both first-time and veteran turntable users.

Eastmain Resources Inc (TSE:ER) told investors that drilling had started on its second phase of the 5,000-metre diamond drilling program at its Eleonore South joint venture property in the James Bay region of Quebec. The 12 hole, 2,500m program will continue to assess high-potential gold targets along a 4km long by 500-metre-wide corridor, east of the JT prospect and to the east and west of the joint venture's recently discovered Moni prospect. The work has three aims, including following up encouraging results from phase 1 drilling at that corridor, where results included 76.1 grams per tonne gold over 1.55 metres in one hole, and testing the eastern extensions immediately south of the Cheechoo discovery. The third goal is to test the western extension of the corridor toward the JT prospect. The Eleonore South property is being explored as a three-way joint venture between Eastmain Resources, which has 36.

Bush scored even higher marks in their first addresses to Congress at 68 percent and 66 percent, respectively. Trump struck a more optimistic and less bombastic tone in the speech, and it appears to have won favor from viewers. Trump hewed closely to his prepared remarks — which were still coming together Tuesday evening — and avoided policy specifics. Trump seemed to be reacting to the positive media reviews and viewer reaction when he took to Twitter Wednesday morning. His message was brief: “THANK YOU!” The CBS poll included 857 people who watched the speech, with a margin of error of 4.2 percentage points. The CNN/ORC poll included 509 Americans who watched the speech and had a margin of sampling error of 4.5 percentage points.

(video link) Since the release of the Game Boy in 1989, there has been a pretty fundamental split between playing games on a TV-based console and playing games on a portable system. Aside from pricey experiments like the Turbo Express , playing on the go meant making significant and understandable sacrifices in graphical and computational power (and, often, controls) compared to contemporary home consoles. With the Switch, Nintendo seems to be betting that the continued drum beat of Moore's Law and miniaturization has made that dichotomy moot. The Switch is an attempt to drag the portable gaming market kicking and screaming to a point where it's literally indistinguishable from the experience you'd get playing on a 1080p HDTV. Nintendo is betting that a system that fits in a diminutive tablet form factor is now powerful enough to feel acceptably modern when you throw it into an included dock and blow it up to full size on your living room wall.

I then made matters worse by attempting, full strength, to torque them back out...only in the wrong direction. The wrist straps have tiny embossed plus-and-minus signs you're supposed to align with like symbols on the Joy-Cons themselves, but they're the same color as the molding, and so you'll likely miss them until you've made the mistake. That the tolerance for bad user on device errors is this high is impressive, I just wish Nintendo had included a heads-up about the directionality somewhere. (I'd make a self-deprecating RTFM joke here, but even the instructional broadsheet in the box makes no reference to the symbol-matching trick.) I've seen reports of others experiencing erratic wireless connectivity with the Joy-Cons. All I can say is that after a week of hard use, with the Switch at my side anywhere I've gone, playing games like 1-2-Switch and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild with the Joy-Cons detached, I can't for the life of me reproduce the glitch.

Real Madrid have had a productive February overall...even if it wasn't 100 per cent perfect. A big win in Europe and three wins out of four in La Liga mean Los Blancos are still top of the table and looking strong to retain the UEFA Champions League trophy. Performances haven't always been of the highest order, though, indicating that there's still work to be done. Here, we look at the entire month and name the team's top performers, taking into account anyone who played, the quality of opposition and how much each player affected Real's own performances and results. The matches included are: 3-1 win vs. Osasuna 3-1 win vs. Napoli 2-0 win vs. Espanyol 2-1 defeat vs. Valencia 3-2 win vs. Villarreal Begin Slideshow

Although it's hard to imagine Neo running down the street, flicking open his phone and typing an email to 'getmeoutofhere@mrwizardman.com' to find an exit. 3. LG Chocolate BL40 (2009) LGs Chocolate product line is fondly remembered, and not just because you kind of wanted to eat it. The phones had a candy bar form factor (see what they did there?) and often included sliders, as was the style at the time. The BL40, though, known as the New Chocolate, was a reinvention of the popular phone in a truly strange and quite compelling format. The New Chocolate was a long, thin phone with a cinematic (21:9) screen is this ringing any bells? Thats right, the BL40 paved the way for the just-released LG G6 with its PureVision display, this time with an aspect ratio of 18:9, or 2:1 for people who can count.
