This was a big week with four major milestones of interest to me:

  1. Super Mario Run app for iPhone and iPad was released
  2. The premier of Star Wars Rogue One
  3. Season 2 of The Man in the High Castle was released on Amazon Prime
  4. Apple AirPods wireless headphones were released
Super Mario Run is now available for free for iPhone and iPad. The game includes 3 free levels and all the additional levels can be unlocked with a $9.99 in app purchase. I’m not very good at it, but it’s a fun game the can be played with just one hand. Unfortunately, Internet connectivity is required so I won’t be playing on the plane.

Star Wars Rogue One premiered on Thursday at 7pm and I was fortunate to see it with my son and his friend from school – both big Star War fans. I liked it better than last year’s the “Force Awakens” and it’s my favorite Star Wars film since the “Empire Strikes Back.”

The Man in the High Castle premiered last year on Amazon Prime and I was a big fan of the series. I was thrilled see that it was renewed for a second season. I haven’t had a chance to watch it yet, but I plan to over the holidays.

Apple AirPods were released. Unfortunately, I didn’t place my order quick enough to arrive before Christmas. The estimated delivery date is January 12. AirPods go on sale in Apple Stores next week and I plan to check availability in the event I can pick up a pair faster.
