Webtacular World Issue # 277, March 24, 2019

Greetings Webtaculators. On to the news.

STORY OF THE WEEK (8 min. read)
What: Mueller Report
Why: Because it makes no sense that everyone involved in this case who was found to be obstructing justice would have done so if they had nothing to hide – the logic of this whole endeavor feels broken.

ECONOMIC THING OF THE WEEK (4 min. read)
What: Corporate Overlord
Why: Because Disney now owns 21st Century Fox (the entertainment Fox, not the “news” Fox).

LAW THING OF THE WEEK (4 min. read)
What: How To Ban Weapons After A Mass Shooting
Why: Because New Zealand understands that people do not need guns in a modern society.

TECH THING OF THE WEEK (4 min. read)
What: Google Enters Gaming
Why: Because as mentioned last week, Google is such a large platform that it is kind of amazing that it didn’t do something earlier. The main strength that Stadia has is that google is already heavily invested in servers, so it makes sense that they are going all in on back end streaming. However, not everyone is super excited about.

LITERATURE THING OF THE WEEK (6 min. read)
What: Authors Don’t Know How To Party
Why: Because party scenes in books make no sense.

VIDEO GAME THING OF THE WEEK (6 min. read)
What: Shadows Die Always

INTERNET THINGS OF THE WEEK (∞)
