Nintendo Switch emulator already in the works from team behind 3DS emulator

Nintendo Switch emulator

Long before Nintendo started packaging classic games on miniature versions of its old consoles, the easiest way to play those games was with an emulator. Despite their questionable legality, emulators for virtually every console ever made have been released on PC, Android and even other video game consoles over the years.

As you might expect, it often takes years after a console launches for an emulator to be developed, but this weekend, the team behind the Citra emulator for the 3DS announced that a Switch emulator is already in the works.

Holding in a sneeze could land you a week in hospital, doctors say

Holding in sneeze emergency room visit

There's a lot of old-school pseudo-medicine that says holding in a sneeze could be bad for your health: Sneezing helps get the devil out, so the theory goes, so your bodily function is actually a vital component of exorcism or something.

But according to a new case report published in the British Journal of Medicine and seen by Gizmodo, there's a very real reason to let it out. One 34-year-old man who tried to hold in a sneeze by plugging his mouth and nose ended up with major damage to his throat, a feeding tube down his neck, and a week-long hospital visit.

Apple’s App Store generated more revenue in 2016 than McDonald’s

App Store

Earlier this month, Apple provided us with some updated numbers regarding the App Store and, suffice it to say, business is booming. Throughout 2017, Apple notes that it paid out $26.5 billion to developers, a solid increase from the $20.3 billion Apple doled out to developers in 2016. All told, Apple has cumulatively paid out more than $86 billion to developers since the App Store opened in July of 2008. And once we take Apple's 30% cut into account, Apple's App Store has generated a staggering $122.8 billion in sales over the last nine and a half years.

The figures above are impressive, but they're also so big that it can become challenging to truly appreciate just how impactful and successful the App Store has become. That being the case, a recent piece from Horace Dediu provides us with some insightful data in order to help us contextualize the importance of the App Store to Apple's bottom line.

Elon Musk says enhanced voice command functionality is coming to the Model 3

Model 3 Features

Tesla vehicles are certainly forward-thinking, but sometimes the company's tech oriented approach results in a less than optimal user experience. Case in point: a recent CNN review of the Model 3 bemoans the fact that users are essentially required to play around with the car's 15-inch touchscreen anytime they want to adjust even the most minor of controls or vehicular settings.

"To do almost anything, from adjusting the mirrors to tweaking the car's speed while driving in Autopilot, I had to use the screen," Petere Valdes-Dapena wrote last week. "There are two unmarked knobs on the steering that are involved in various functions but, before you can use the knobs, you have to poke around on the big screen first. It's annoying and most people will hate it. More importantly, it's terribly distracting."

This unbelievable image of Jupiter’s cloud belts makes me want to move there

Jupiter photo: Juno probe images

Jupiter is, scientifically speaking, not great for humans. The gravitational pull is about 2.4 times that of Earth, and its atmosphere is mostly hydrogen and helium. Even within our own Solar System, there are much better candidates for sustaining life, even including some of Jupiter's own moons.

But from space, it's far harder to see Jupiter's hostility to life forms. In fact, this color-enhanced image of Jupiter's cloud belts, taken by the Juno spacecraft, makes the planet look positively inviting.
