That's why I keep almost all of my systems hooked up/not boxed up. The only thing I have unplugged is my Wii, but my WiiU is still hooked up. I am still short a functioning Genesis at the moment though. I also have very little space on my entertainment centers and the back of them is a nightmare of wires. Pros and cons, I suppose.

my wii u still gets quite a bit of use, even if just as an hdmi-compatible all-purpose emulator

I remember the Hulu app on the WiiU being particularly awful. It'd freeze all the time.

apparently Verizon is looking to sell Tumblr and Pornhub has announced interest in buying it. which may or may not be a good thing, but it's just weird enough to make me smile

specifically verizon wants to sell bc tumblr's userbase is too savvy/weird to advertise to

if you ever browse tumblr with adblock off you'll see some bonkers stuff

Yeah, I don't really know what they were expecting?

Fairly certain tons of people said Verizon buying Tumblr was a bad idea in terms of profiting off it, and surprise that's exactly how this went down.

Good luck to whoever takes it from them, Tumblr is built on graham crackers, toxicity, and the hottest new hallucinogen. It's going to take a lot of work to make a decent site out of that.

No. Verizon bought Yahoo like 2 years ago and Tumblr was a subsidiary of Yahoo. Yahoo tried to see if it could generate revenue and took a sizeable risk. blamed the lack of smaller market share, slow revenue growth as the reason they had to write off literally 75 percent of the goodwill acquisition. They took a huge bath.
