Why do some states get their absentee ballots counted more quickly?
Well, it's a federalist country. States make their own voting rules. Some states started counting the absentee ballots as soon as they came in. Other states, much later. So, Florida pretty much had it done right at the beginning, which is why we had Florida results early on, which was very good for Donald Trump. Alaska doesn't even start to count them until they've all been received, which is why we have no idea how Alaska voted, though it also probably voted for Trump.
The PlayStation 5, is it going to transform gaming?
The early reviews of the PS5 are very good. There's some critique of its design and its size, but people like the power, the speed, the graphics, the stuff that really matters. Important question for me is, am I going to get one for my kids? I love playing FIFA on the PS4 against my six-year-old. We are dead even. PS5? Might be a little much.
