As it turns out, a Game Boy release in 2021 isn’t this week’s biggest dose of nostalgia. Continuing the theme of everything old becoming new again, we have Chappelle’s Show making an unexpected return to Netflix after its creator worked things out with ViacomCBS.
Even more surprisingly, NVIDIA is putting an old GPU on sale again to mitigate supply issues, because the GTX 1050 Ti’s limitations make it more valuable to gamers than cryptocurrency miners.
Last but not least, remember the stunt HBO Max tried to pull last year with a reunion of the Friends cast to launch its expanded streaming service? To top that, when Paramount+ replaces CBS All Access on March 4th it will feature a new Real World docuseries bringing the original NYC cast members back in front of the cameras. What’s next?

These aren’t sporty SUVs — they’re sports cars.
Two years after the debut of the first e-tron SUV, Audi is expanding its electric lineup with a pair of all-wheel drive, four-wheel steer Grand Touring models — the 637 HP RS e-tron GT and the 522 HP e-tron GT quattro.
The quattro offers 320kW of total power (350kW or 522HP under boost), a zero-to-62 of 4.1 seconds and 465 pounds per foot of torque. The more capable RS muscles in with 440kW (475kW under boost or roughly 637HP), a zero-to-62 in just 3.1 seconds, 612 pounds per foot torque and a 155MPH (governed) top speed.
The e-tron GT will arrive in the US this summer in three trim packages: the e-tron GT quattro Premium Plus for $99,900, the e-tron GT quattro Prestige for $107,000, and the RS e-tron GT for $139,900.
