For episode 89 we talk about our Coronavirus quarantine from state to state. Bill joins us from Illinois on our Skype powered episode. We all try the new KFC donut chicken sandwich. Willing to bet it is not good for Diabetics, but oh well. Then we look at a lot of Netflix shows and movies along with what the WWE is doing for Wrestlemania.

3 Minutes of Wrestling
- Wrestlemania is still going to happen at WWE performance center in Orlando with no audience on April 5th. Just announced it will be at 2 locations and hosted by Gronk
- For the record, I cannot wait to watch this.
- Matt Hardy and Luke Harper debuted in front of no one on AEW.
Next-Gen Console Round-Up
- Xbox Series X
- 12 Teraflops? Expansion cards are Seagate 1 TB SDD (no price on those). A huge fan at the top. Pause multiple games at once, faster loading. Saw gameplay of Gears 5 have to be honest didn’t look much different. https://www.engadget.com/2020/03/16/microsoft-xbox-series-x-hardware-specs
- Custom-built SSD that greatly reduces loading and install times. SSD will help developers. PS4 backward compatible but they mentioned it will play the top 100 PS4 games only at launch. 3D audio (what?) PS5 has 10.28 Teraflops, so the flop wars have begun.
Hard Earned Review
- Can’t go anywhere to buy anything?
- Tried to buy some dumbbells at Meijer to keep active a bunch of other people had this idea before me
- Anyone using Amazon and eBay during this? What are delivery situations?
