Man, these product tie-ins are getting complicated. Last week Microsoft teased a throwback to its initial Windows operation system, Windows 1.0. At the time, we had no idea why all the time travel. Now, we know. It was indeed a tie-in with Stranger Things Season 3, which released last week on that one holiday Americans are always surprised the rest of the world doesn't celebrate.

Want to order food using Facebook? Apparently now you can (in some places) Okay, we’re starting to think that Mark Zuckerberg wants everyone strapped into an Oculus Rift in a Facebook-monitored home, shopping online and generating data for advertisers who want to sell you new things to buy without ever leaving the house. How else do you explain the fact that Facebook is adding the ability to...[Read More]
Anyone who lived through the 1980s may remember you couldn’t enter any stores (or arcades) without being bombarded with movie tie-in products, including (frequently horrible) video games.

As Halloween edges closer, here’s more Stranger Things Season 2 from Comic-Con One of the visual highlights of last year was Stranger Things, the Stephen King-styled story of a mysterious young girl, a bunch of kids, a parent who thought she was going nuts, and a whole lot of 80s aesthetic. And Barb. So to say that we’re excited for the follow-up is a bit of an understatement. We still...[Read More]
