Hey, good morning! You look fabulous.

It's Friday, and we finally have a name for Disney's new streaming service -- you can probably guess what it is. Also, we've reviewed Microsoft's latest laptop and taken some time to consider the potential of a phone that folds up.


The streaming fight is on in 2019.Disney's Netflix competitor has a name: Disney+

The new service will offer a number of exclusive original shows and movies as well including a Loki-centric Thor spinoff starring Tom Hiddleston, a reboot of the High School Musical franchise, new adventures from the Monsters Inc. universe and a prequel series to Rogue One starring Diego Luna (to go with Jon Favreau's already-announced The Mandalorian).

Hope you like heavy pixelation and blocky polygon rendering.The Playstation Classic is $100 worth of '90s nostalgia

On one hand, if you're into retro gaming, already have a NES Classic and a SNES Classic and want to round out your collection -- or if you just want to show your bratty kids just how good they've actually got it with their Playstation 4s and Xbox Ones -- by all means take a shot with the PSC.

At $100, it's a bit pricier than either the $60 NES Classic or $80 SNES Classic, but it does offer easier access to these old-school games than fiddling with emulators and ROMs. On the other hand, you're dropping a Benjamin to play 23-year-old video games.
