👋
Not only did I totally miss a week of the newsletter, but now I am a day late too! The heat and stress of all the fires in the PNW must have really gotten to me these last few weeks. Don’t worry, we are safe, it isn’t too smokey yet, and we do happen to have central A/C!
📰 So many podcasts
Many of you may not know that I have been podcasting for over 11 years. I got the itch originally when I ran a small website all about building small home theater PCs. I did a weekly podcast about the news in the space which led to a series of events including the site being features on lifehacker, I was a guest on a podcast called Entertainment 2.0, and then I became friends with that team and started a whole podcast about movie review! Since then, I have had the honor of podcasting with my good friend Frank Krueger on Merge Conflict, talking chess with Danny, discussing Nintendo with Christina and Michael, and still producing the Xamarin podcast at work! I like to talk!
This month celebrate 5 years of recording Merge Conflict with Frank and I decided to do a little blog with my favorite picks.

🎮 Nintendo Switch OLED
At the start of July Nintendo announced a new update for the Nintendo Switch that features a larger OLED screen, enhanced dock with ethernet, better adjustable stand, and other improvements like it comes in white! This is a terrific addition to the Nintendo Switch family and ensures that all your games and accessories work. This makes sense over a new Switch Pro which as some point may come, but really at that point make it a Switch 2. I spent a lot of time this week trying to lock in a pre-order when they went live and after many failed attempts, I am pleased to say that I locked one in at Walmart.com, which hopefully will ship it on time 🤞. They aren’t my favorite online retailer (or physical retailer) at all, but they did come through with my Xbox Series X|S.
