Nintendo and Microsoft made for odd partners this morning, announcing that a long-anticipated remastered edition of the classic Nintendo 64 first-person shooter, GoldenEye 007 will launch Friday for players on Nintendo Switch and Xbox platforms.
A big part of Microsoft’s strategy has always been how it bundles the services it offers to businesses. That’s great when everything’s working, less so when there’s an outage like we saw today with Outlook and Teams. If you can’t email your colleagues, and you can’t instant message them, then what in the world is left? WhatsApp? The outage brings to a close a tough week for Microsoft that included layoffs and declining sales.
In other news, Adult Swim has officially cut ties with Rick and Morty co-creator Justin Roiland in the wake of the voice actor’s two felony charges for domestic battery and false imprisonment by menace, violence, fraud, or deceit. The channel says the show is still in production, but its reputation will have taken a severe hit as a result of the allegations.
And finally, Tesla says it’s investing billions in its Nevada operations which it says will help expand its battery cell and Semi truck production. The new $3.6 billion round of investment comes in addition to the $6.2 billion Tesla has already invested in the Nevada Gigafactory. The electric automaker will report its quarterly earnings results this afternoon.
Now, here’s a silly tweet to start your day:
Apple’s new M2 Pro Mac Mini comes with more power than any Mini before it. And unlike the M1 or M2 versions, the M2 Pro model actually fills out the spacious Mini case with a larger logic board and more powerful power supply. Unsurprisingly, the M2 Pro model also borrows some internal design ideas from the Mac Studio.
YouTuber Luke Miani has taken it down to the metal to see exactly what’s different with the M2 Pro Mini and the models before it. And when you’re done watching that, check out Chris Welch’s review.
The performance and luxury brand will start taking reservations for the ZDX and ZDX Type S later this year. And while customers can make all of their purchasing decisions online, dealers will remain part of the process.
