After giving the high-end, HDMI-enabled aftermarket treatment to both NES and SNES hardware, Analogue is now setting its sights on recreating and upgrading Sega's classic game consoles. The $189 Mega Sg, shipping next April, promises full FPGA-driven, HDMI-powered support for a bevy of early Sega cartridges.
Out of the box, the Mega Sg will offer region-free support for Genesis/Mega Drive and Sega Master System cartridges, the latter via an included adapter. Other optional cartridge adapters (which should sell for about $10 each) will add support for the Game Gear and international Sega systems like the SG-1000, SC-3000, and Mark III. Users will also be able to connect a standard Sega CD/Mega CD hardware to play Sega's earliest CD-ROM games.

Amazon updated its best-value Kindle with some of the coveted features found in its high-end, $249 Kindle Oasis. The new Kindle Paperwhite announced today has a thinner, lighter design that's now waterproof, making it the first Kindle other than the Oasis to have an IPX8 rating.
Amazon last updated the Kindle Paperwhite in 2015, giving it a better screen without raising its price. Now, the newest Paperwhite appears to be a mix of the old model and the now-defunct Kindle Voyage (the latter disappeared from Amazon's site about a month ago). It has a 6-inch, 300ppi touch display with five backlighting LEDs, and the new screen is now flush with the black bezels around it. It's still a black slab, but now it's just 8.18mm thick and weighs just 6.4 ounces.
