Oh, well… it’s about time!
Twitter announced their very own Twitter plug-in for WordPress blogs that makes it easier to embed tweets, optimize your posts and content to Twitter-dome and – quite cool – integrate with Twitter Analytics (yes, that one).
I’m about to install it on my WordPress blogs and test it even though I’ve been using several other post-to-tweet plugins – which have been around for a while – along with some PHP code I wrote by myself.
Soon I’ll write back about this Twitter-official plugin and its comparison with similar, widely installed plugins.

A new amazing movie is upcoming from Disney/Pixar and it’s about emotions: Inside Out.
The first available trailer is a masterpiece of “what’s behind” (well, inside our brain).
When and where emotions take place – and control…
This promises to be really awesome!
You may recall about the Atari videogame burial site affair…

After teasing retro gamers with a trailer of Atari: Game Over, the film’s director has stated that the documentary looking into the gaming giant’s collapse and their infamous landfill site is due to hit Xbox Video later this month.
Through various interviews, inside stories and of course a full feature on the digging that took place earlier this year, Atari: Game Over looks set to finally debunk the many mysteries and rumours surrounding E.T. and Atari’s inevitable demise.

Data back-up as a nightmare?
Ok, just for Halloween let’s take a look at these creepy magazine ads for a couple of (ancient) backup software back from the very early 80s: Ecosoft’s Archivist for CP/M-based computers and Locksmith 5.0 for Apple II systems.
Provided that, back then, you had to back up floppies on… floppies… (hard disk were an expensive options, if available, for most systems) so it was a painful process anyway!
