Well whaddya know, it's Friday again. I am sorry for not being here with you last Friday, but I promise I'll make it up to you guys. I had planned a very complex topic for this week, it involved artificial intelligence and a bunch of random things you could do with it. Completely useless random thing obviously, it's Tech Lolz, not NASA here, but then something happened. And then it happened again. And again. And again. And multiply again with 67. My Chrome crashed. And this text was born inside an Evernote document while I kept on trying to actually open the bloody tabs.
Miscellaneous content: opinions, traffic details, surveys, announcements, etc.

Some people consider the initial release of Microsoft Edge to be quite promising while others consider it underwhelming. After using it for the last couple of weeks, we would like to share with you the things that we believe make Microsoft Edge a better browser than others. Here they are:

Howdy humans. It's Friday, so it's time for me to try to amuse you with my fabulous random writing on tech and such (The team didn't realize yet I am really an epic fail with gadgets and computers. I think they still believe I am actually smart because I memorize a lot of 9gag jokes). I believe that today's article will bring out the nostalgic in you, you'll shed a few tears, call a friend and then go back to your lives as if nothing ever happened.

Now, I know that we think some things are bad because that is what mom taught us, and some things are good because… well, mom taught us. And then we know what is polite and what is not polite because our grandparents made sure that we never fart at Christmas dinners. And then in college we learned how alcohol can help you pick up chicks or exorcise your stomach and in all this time we also learned about what is to be discussed and what's taboo. In simple words we learned boundaries.

It's time to be grossed out, because this week, I decided it is time to leave software aside and become a design critic. Looking at my Sony Xperia M2 and then digging through my memory box and finding my old cell phones, from when they weren't that smart, there is just one thing I can say: Man, I owned some really ugly devices.

Endless mind games, stupid repetitive games, apps with absolutely no real use which look pretty, you name it. Because that's what people do, they love to waste time until deadline is one hour away. I am two useless apps away from never actually sleeping again. Because, aside from wasting your time with innocent grace, they are also addictive. Here's why:
