(CNN) — We all know being a tourist can be expensive, but in the Italian city of Venice, even just sitting down could soon cost you dearly.
The city's mayor, Luigi Brugnaro, has proposed a fine of up to €500 (about $585) for anyone planting themselves down in an undesignated spot.
The proposal isn't without precedent in Venice. People are...

I installed a new modem/wifi router combo, and it's a big improvement. Comcast notified me a few months ago that they weren't supporting my old modem anymore, so I actually did some research and spent money on a good unit. Now I'm getting the download speeds I was promised.

Also, my car started playing nice with my phone again, so I can use voice commands to use Google chat. That's a feature I use pretty regularly, and it wasn't working for a...

Retro PS console? Okay that's neat. "Classic" branding? [face_plain]

Well, I say branding, but apparently now stuff that came out in the 90's is just considered "classic", because I'm sure Sony isn't just blatantly copying Nintendo's marketing material. I mean, I guess the Beatles are now Ancient Rock, and Beethoven is now Anciental Music.

I really don't know how to put this into a great set of words, but, I think as a whole, the US is fortunate to have Trevor Noah hosting The Daily Show. I say this because we're given insight in a person that did not grow up with the luxuries many kids have, and he was able to ascend into a media platform that allows us to get an outsider's view on all the insanity we call normal. He comes off as one of the most humble people, and his jokes that revolve...

Not sure how I feel about this. I'm worried the change from live-action to cartoon won't work for this series, but at least the original creators are involved so it has the best possible chance of being good.

I mean, Avatar is probably my favourite cartoon of all time, so I'm going to give this a shot either way.]]>
