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!

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.
