    • What the system needs to do in order to have a chance.
  • Microsoft Surface Products and new Apple Macbooks

  • Ben finally sees the Ghostbuster remake!
    • (Trigger warning: I kind of liked it)
    • Jones discusses how it compares to Paul Feig’s previous movies (which I have not seen)
    • How the original Ghostbusters painted itself into a corner in such a way that made sequels difficult and remakes easier.
    • Jones has noticed Tom Cruise has had a lot of recent movies with strong female leads.
    • How other recent movies have given women strong roles without just doing a “gender swap”.
    • Then Jones and I go completely off topic and discuss Bram Stoker’s Dracula and The Rocketeer.
