Original and proudly opinionated perspectives for Generation T

  1. We know what American gamers have been buying the most over the last few years, and it probably won’t surprise you that Call of Duty tops the list. But it’s Rockstar‘s magnum opus, Grand Theft Auto V, that takes the cake. US NPD SW – 2010-2019 Top 10 Sellers – Grand Theft Auto V was the best-selling game of the decade. — Mat Piscatella (@MatPiscatella) January 16, 2020 The NPD group released their list of the US’s top best-selling games of the 2010-2019 decade, and it’s interesting to see what we were playing the most in microcosm.

While some systems make it easier to weed out candidates who lack necessary educational or work qualifications, many AI hiring solutions are nothing more than snake oil.

  5. Tesla cars are capable of a lot, from self-driving, smart summoning, and automatic parking — but what about running Bitcoin? As it turns out, they can do that too.
