New Zealand judge sends neo-Nazi to prison for sharing mosque shooting video

A New Zealand court today sentenced a man to 21 months in prison for sharing a video of the white-supremacist terrorist attacks that killed 51 people at two mosques in Christchurch.

As we noted in previous coverage, New Zealand and many other countries don't have US-style free-speech protections. After the mosque shootings on March 15, New Zealand's chief censor determined that a 17-minute video livestreamed during the shooting is objectionable under the country's law.

"It's illegal to have a copy of the video or document, or to share these with others," the New Zealand government explained.

Dealmaster: Get a Nintendo Switch Pro Controller for $50

Ars Technica - 1 hour 50 min ago

Greetings, Arsians! The Dealmaster is back with another round of deals to share. Today's list is headlined by a deal on Nintendo's Switch Pro Controller, which is down to $50. That's good for a $15-20 discount off its usual going rate and tied for the lowest we've seen the gamepad at reputable retailers.

Whether it's worth jumping on this deal depends on how often you keep the Switch docked and hooked up to a TV. The Switch's built-in "Joy-Con" controllers are still perfectly fine for most use cases, and if you're on the road, the hassle of trying to keep the Switch propped up just to use the Switch Pro pad probably isn't worth it. Much of the Switch's appeal is in its portability, after all.

But if you don't just treat your Switch like a big 3DS, the Switch Pro Controller brings substantial upgrades in comfort and responsiveness, particularly over the course of longer play sessions. The face buttons, triggers, and joysticks are bigger and have more give, there's an actual d-pad, and the whole thing should be sized appropriately for all but the smallest hands. (Those joysticks are also laid out asymmetrically, a la an Xbox controller, which the Dealmaster has always found to feel more natural than the layout on Sony's DualShock 4 pad.) Nintendo rates the controller's rechargeable battery as lasting an excellent 40 hours on a charge, and that estimate isn't far off in practice.
