We hear NFTs have become very popular. Had we known, we could have cashed in our trademark NFTs and made some serious "cha-ching!"...

...but then they wouldn't be "Nerds Freely Talking" ("Freely" as in "cha-ching!").

Replentish your NFT reserves tomorrow! See 2600.nyc for details.

I remember when Oracle bought JD Edwards and other DB companies as I was teenager then, I also saw the browser wars.

Subscription-bound hardware is strange. Usually it becomes completely useless when you end your subscription. But in most cases you don't return the hardware, you just throw it somewhere and leave it there until it goes to waste.
