Happy Pokémon 25! The Pokémon Company has been encouraging trainers from all over the world to share their Pokémon stories on the 25th anniversary of the original games’ release. Five years ago, we did share our origins with the franchise, so I thought it would be cool to tell one of my favorite stories from the past five years, the day I got to preview the Pokémon Let’s Go games in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

This isn’t the end of our content, a massive concert in celebration of Pokémon 25 will be streaming at 7PM EST!

Pokémon Let’s Go Pikachu and Pokémon Let’s Go Eevee are out now for the Nintendo Switch. Pokémon Go is out now for Android and iOS devices.

Drift is what happens when your controller starts to do things you aren’t telling it to, either by ignoring your inputs or creating inputs of their own.

So, if your Joy-Con is drifting, what do you do? You can get Nintendo to repair your drifting controller here. Here’s what the experience was like for us:

Tales from IT – Upgrading to the M1 Mac January 15, 2021

Posted by Maniac in Site Videos, Tales from IT.
add a comment

We’ve got a new Tales from IT! Apple has launched their line of custom processors and the computers that have these processors are available for purchase right now. Many friends and peers of mine are finally putting away their 5-10 year old MacBooks for good and upgrading to these new powerful systems.

But what is a Mac user to do with their years and years of files and data, especially if they have not created any backups? Apple will not take any responsibility for your data (unless it’s being stored on the iCloud), so asking a Genius to transfer your files, settings and programs is not an option. You can however, call a different kind of professional.

Watch the video below and find out what it was like to do a complete data transfer to a new M1 Mac. You’ll even get some tips and pointers along the way.
