It’s a Sony production, so it’s reasonable to expect the rosiest possible picture. But this trailer for Raising Kratos hypes a feature-length documentary look at the intricate development process that fuels a modern-day video game blockbuster.

Best of all: it’s a no-cost deep dive into that process. There isn’t a release date, but Sony promises a…

So, with their guns pointed and a canine unit at the ready, they burst through the door… only to find a disoriented little Roomba bumping itself against the shower…

As TidBits reports, it used to be the case that if you took an old Mac in for repair, or purchased a new Mac and wanted the files from your old one transferring over, Apple would charge $99 to do it for you. However, tech consultant David Price discovered this month that the charge he…
