If you played Flash-based games in the 2000s, you probably remember Kongregate, a website that hosted over 100,000 browser games.

Kongregate said in a statement to Forbes that the way they… → Read More

'Scorn' for Xbox Series X is like an H.R. Giger painting come to life

We're not far into Microsoft's Xbox Series X event, where the company is showing off gameplay footage from the console for the first time — but we probably have seen the most disturbing trailer we're going to get today. It's for Scorn, from Ebb Software, and it seems there's no better way to describe it than an H.R. Giger painting come to life. There isn't really any gameplay to speak of here. → Read More

Pinterest has historically done a very good job at battling misinformation on its platform, doing its best to hide anti-vaccine content and more recently providing custom search results related to the coronavirus pandemic.

Apple's new Air could be the MacBook for everyone

At $999, the MacBook Air is $200 cheaper than it was when Apple released the redesigned late-2018 model. The entry-level $999 model should be a logical choice for the majority of interested buyers, no upgrades necessary. For $100 less than the model Apple was selling yesterday, you get the same 8GB of RAM but double the storage: 256GB, up from 128GB. The default processor is still a dual-core… → Read More
