Can the Halo series survive without the Master Chief and Cortana? Halo 5 introduces Fireteam Osiris, a new team of Spartan-IV heroes, but will we care?
Master Chief Petty Officer John-117 is the greatest hero in FPS history. His relationship with the AI, Cortana, and a mildly sarcastic refusal to accept defeat, have saved humanity over and over again. Apparent Microsoft feels the franchise needs to move along.

The more you use your computer, the more it becomes possible for others to use it too. Where there are anti-virus systems, there are hackers looking for a way to get around them. That’s why it’s important to get software that doesn’t just passively scout for viruses in the background. The folks behind GlassWire have […]
Knowledge is power. It’s a cliché, but sometimes things turn into a cliché because they’re true. If you’re making your way through the world of business and entrepreneurship, it only makes sense to read about the insights of people who have climbed that ladder before you. Trouble is, the modern workday doesn’t leave a lot […]
As much as some of us fear the loss of our jobs to robots, there’s one job we’re pretty sure they are welcome to: vacuuming. There’s nothing quite like kicking back and watching a robot vacuum do one of the most time-consuming tasks on the household chore list. And there are few ‘bots that do […]
