Georgie wants his boat back, but he's curious for a peek at the Ataribox

Like many of us, Georgie is curious about the upcoming Ataribox and wants more info... even if it comes from a demonic clown!
Atari seemed eager to make their Ataribox announcement during last Spring's E3, which made of us think they were close to showing off their new game console. So, far they have dropped enough hints to make us realize this "new game console" is careening toward disappointment.

I'd love to see Atari make a comeback and release an innovative piece of gaming hardware. However, at this point, I'd settle for a cool t-shirt with an Atari logo. With no solid info and the admission that the Ataribox will be crowd-funded, I don't have high hopes for this device.

On a positive note, the "It" film is good. I love Stephen King books, but never cared for the movies. However, I thought this one was well done. I liked he characters and the way they unfolded the story, even though many of us know the tale. Definitely worth a look.
