Hello everyone! I'm back with another product review. This time, I'll be reviewing a Cinematic Light Box from Amazon seller AGM.


So this product is a little bit different from ones I typically review (games, or game related items), but my wife and I both thought it was such a neat item, we wanted to give it shot, and we're glad we did.
The AGM Cinematic Light Box is an LED light box that you can use to create brightly backlit messages to display at home, work, church, school, wherever you want. Think of a fast food sign, but only one that you can hold in your hands and take on the go.

Hello everyone!

I'm back with another review and this time I got my hands on a Wireless Power Bank with 5000mAH battery from Amazon seller MBuyNow.​




Let me start with the design. Smaller than a deck of cards, the MBuyNow Wireless Power Bank can either be used to charge your phone in a flat position, or you can use the built in ridges to prop up the charging pad and stand your phone against the pad either vertically or horizontally. I found it much more convenient in my case to prop the charging pad up and lay my phone against it. That's just a matter of personal preference though. There is supposed to be a magnet in order to grab your phone and hold it against the pad to protect the phone from falling just in case, but I never got it to "grab". This could be the case that was on the phone, or perhaps the magnet isn't strong enough. To be honest, I didn't try after that and didn't care or need to....

Leaders across borders decry anti-Chinese stereotypes

The Markham-developed video game 'Dirty Chinese Restaurant' has caused protest on both sides of the border due to its anti-Chinese stereotypes and racism. Its developers claim they only meant it to be satirical, and it looks like it has caused outrage around the world, and most likely will soon be pulled from both Google and iOS app stores, and I am sure YouTube will soon censor the 'gameplay' videos.

We have reported before on MaxConsole, on how 'Casinos' are losing out to the new generation, and have been looking at ways to bring in new whales to grab their money, and one of the new ways is to bring back the Retro '80s Arcade gaming experience, but to change it up a bit to allow people to win back some money instead of just sucking away their quarters for some entertainment, and first up to plate to help Casinos bring in new fresh gaming blood, is Bandi Namco with their classic Pac-Man game changed up a bit.
