The Karlmann King looks like a Batmobile cousin. A luxury Batmobile filled with everything you need for a lifestyle of the rich and famous road trip. Underneath you find the bones of a Ford Super Duty. Based on the size, the F-450 seems likely. Power comes from Ford’s tried and true Triton V10. The best part is the price: roughly $3.5 million.

AMD Wraith Prism Stock Cooler Eye Candy

No matter your stance on Frag Harder Disco Lights, I have to admit after I got this new Wraith Prism cooler up and running, I thought it was worth a little video coverage. Our review of the Ryzen 2700X is here, and this cooler comes with the 2700X. We are getting testing down now with just how Precision Boost 2 works with the 2700X on stock settings compared to our most awesome XSPC custom loop.

According to an article on the New York TImes, the Justice Department has opened an antitrust investigation into AT&T, Verizon, and the G.S.M.A. The investigation is said to be into potential coordination by the companies to thwart eSIM technology. eSIM technology would allow users to switch wireless providers remotely without having to change the SIM card. The investigation was opened about five months ago when at least one device maker, and one wireless carrier filed formal complaints with the Justice Department.

Honestly the accusations don’t surprise me at all. Hopefully the Justice Department will step up and end this, as well as other anti-consumer practices.

AT&T and Verizon face accusations that they colluded with the G.S.M.A. to try to establish standards that would allow them to lock a device to their network even if it had eSIM technology.

ExtremeTech is reporting that if you want to purchase a physical copy of Star Wars: The Last Jedi for your collection, you are out of luck unless you are an Amazon Prime member. Both the Blu-ray and DVD copies of the movie are listed as “Exclusively for Prime members” on Amazon, in addition Beauty and the Beast, Thor: Ragnarok, and Guardians of the Galaxy 2 are all restricted to Prime members and Prime members only.

Interesting choice by Amazon for sure, ExtremeTech makes an interesting argument in the quote below. Fortunately though The Last Jedi sucked, so the chances of actually wanting to buy it are slim.

Best of all, Amazon knows that while you may wind up going to Target or Best Buy eventually, you’ll visit Amazon first. The company’s overwhelming domination of the online sales market give it the effective right of first refusal – by which we mean that if shoppers default to checking Amazon first, Amazon is essentially “deciding” if it wants those visitors as shoppers.
