OnePlus is a company that has historically had issues with shipping. With its earlier phones, quickly shipping out orders with consistency was a major roadblock for OnePlus, but with the OnePlus 3T, the company tried committing to immediate dispatch with its phones.

Microsoft just passed a huge milestone

Microsoft just passed a huge milestone

It's a good day to be Satya Nadella. Microsoft delivered its latest round of financials yesterday evening, and things are generally looking good across the board. Revenue and per-share earnings beat estimates in Q4, but even those aren't the biggest items Microsoft reported. Instead, our focus should be on Office 365, which passed an absolutely massive milestone during the quarter.

Yesterday, we heard that Nintendo may be plotting an N64 Classic Edition. With the NES Classic Edition in the books and an SNES version on the way, this is hardly surprising. If the SNES Classic Edition sells well (and we all know it will), then Nintendo will almost certainly produce an N64 Classic Edition. With that in mind, here are eight games that I think should feature on such a retro console.
