Episode 031 “Eclipsing Expectations in Minnesota”


This week Jason, Adam and Usually Dave are setting digitalSoup history as the stars aligned and they were able to gather around a table and record face to face for the first time! Jason travelled to Minnesota and the guys dove into Facebook implementing a paywall feature and Google saying “Don’t call it a comeback”. They also touch on some great movie news with Pacific Rim:Uprising and Shazam, a YouTube video of Hulk being decapitated and a modified live gameshow quiz. Wrapping up with some gaming news, including the Ataribox and a discussion about photographing the upcoming Solar Eclipse, this live recording is a wild ride up north!



Weekly Riddle:

If it takes six men six days to dig six holes, how long will it take one man to dig half a hole?

Answer at the end of the episode!

Facebook to allow paywalled Instant Articles this year
Prompted by large publishers complaints you may now have to start paying to read content on Facebook in some instances. Is it time to ditch facebook all together?


Pacific Rim: Uprising

The reader teaser trailer is out and the movie is set to release February 23rd, 2018.  Not much is known about the movie but you can go wrong with giant robots battling monsters!


Hulk vs Krato fight video
It’s epic and shocking!


Google Adds a Native Podcast Player…Finally
The app will be part of the Google App installed on most Android systems by default and will have some great features to help out the army of podcast listeners on Android!


Google Glass is Back
But did it ever really leave? Where is it showing up now and has it finally found a completely logical home? Just remember, digitalSoup told you so!


Splashtop Personal

I have now switched from LogMeIn to Splashtop personal.  Not only is it just $17 a year instead of $120 butI can connect to five computers instead of just two.


Shazam! will begin filming in early 2018

The boy who became Earth’s hero will tell his story with his 2019 release.


8Bitdo SNES30 Pro & NES30 Arcade Stick – Two new  Bluetooth controllers with classic Nintendo styling for some retro gaming (or modern) on PC, macOS, Android and Switch.


Ataribox Updates

Slowly updates are coming out about the mysterious Ataribox console and it seems that now it will be a mix of classic and current content. What that means is your guess.
