Good evening Shacknews, it’s me again. TGIF, am I right? Although, my Friday was yesterday, and it was pretty great, so I can only hope yours is good, too. However, I do know that it is also a day of remembrance in North America. Whether you were touched personally by the events of 9/11, or carry the weight of social sadness, I hope you’ve found some time to reflect today. Now, let’s take a look at some delightful content designed to lift the spirits and get the mind thinking.
In case you missed it at Shacknews:
There’s been a slew of interesting news stories today, along with a couple of leaks, some Twitch shake-ups, and some game content announcements. We’ve also got a great chapter from an upcoming Long Read by our Long Reads Editor, David Craddock. In this, Craddock tells the tale of Xbox developers traveling on 9/11. Go on, have a click.
And now… Other Stuff From The Internet!!!

Phil “Mad Lad” Spencer
Fun fact: Xbox Series S is so small @XboxP3 had it sitting on his bookshelf back on July 1 and nobody noticed. 😏

Very cheeky, mate. Can’t believe Phil had the Series S chillin’ on his bookcase. What a mad lad. What do you think of the Xbox Series S? Come and give us your thoughts in the Shack Chat! I wonder if Sony has had its console hidden in a similar fashion to NVIDIA and Xbox.
Do we need more Tiger King?

No more gender reveals for you

Gender reveal parties are incredibly stupid, especially when they lead to fires. Look at this jaboofer, getting hit right in the beanbag.
Apparently AP style now says you can use “less” even when “fewer” is correct and so 2020 continues to plumb new depths.

I’m liking 2020 fewer and fewer.

Getting a parcel delivered can certainly feel a bit like this. Why is it be routed through there? Why is it stuck in that place?

Time for a lovely Twitter thread where everyone shares a still from a movie that will haunt them forever. Sounds like a fun way to spend your evening, doom-scrolling through horrific movie clips.
