As many of you now know, controversial Depression Quest developer Zoe Quinn has recently been outed for cheating on her boyfriend with five other guys, including her married boss Joshua Boggs: creator of FRAMED, Robin Arnott, and even Kotaku Writer Nathon Grayson, who vehemently defended her…
"As Germany is nearing the beginning of their defeat in WWII, Nazi architect/Armaments Minister Albert Speer and Hitler’s close relationship is becoming strained. It’s only when Speer threatens to resign that their true feelings for one another are made clear. In a meeting with Field Marshall Milch, who has been sent to tell Hitler about Speer’s possible resignation, Hitler tells Milch to "tell Speer I love him." As the Russian army closes in on Berlin, and with Hitler’s impending suicide in the Fuhrerbunker, Speer leaves his wife and children to fly into Berlin just to say goodbye to Hitler. Years after Hitler’s death, Speer refers to himself as Hitler’s "unrequited love."
This is the story of the Nazi that apologised and the evil dictator that confessed his love to him. This is The Fault in our War Plans.”
- “I wrote this. Five stars.” - Wolters.
-“Fucking Speer. God I hate him so much.” - Goebbels.
(I learned about Hitler’s ‘professional’ relationship with architect Albert Speer this week and a few very questionable things that were said/happened between them… So I made a thing. I’m not even sorry.)
I can’t think of anything clever to add to this masterpiece

The Glorious ’80s Gadgets That Made WarGames So Great | Phreaking Ma Bell
When David needs to make a quick free call, he uses an old phone phreaking classic. After finding a discarded soda pull tab, he shorts the receiver against the coin slot to produce a dial tone without a quarter. It’s one of the few real hacks depicted in movies that actually worked.

The Glorious ’80s Gadgets That Made WarGames So Great | Olympus Pearlcorder S902
Olympus invented the microcassette in 1969, and its Pearlcorder line would be massively popular for the next three decades. David uses this one to record the sound produced by a door lock panel outside the NORAD infirmary. He then unlocks the door by playing the recording back to it, and escapes. Crafty!

The Glorious ’80s Gadgets That Made WarGames So Great | Sony Trinitron KV-1711
For whatever reason, the filmmakers couldn’t (or didn’t want to) use the Sony logo on this 17-inch CRT in the Lightman living room. So David and his dad learn of a prophylactic recycling center fire and a full-scale nuclear alert on their “Amatron” Trinitron set. Screengrab: WIRED | WIRED.com
The Glorious ’80s Gadgets That Made WarGames So Great | NEC-branded version of the HP 2912A monitor
Sharp-eyed viewers will have noticed this NEC-branded version of the HP 82912A monitor in the library while David is researching Professor Falken. Technically, HP didn’t have any products showcased in the movie, but an HP 9845C desktop computer running BASIC powered the graphics on the massive screens in the NORAD war room.
