However, I found comparison shopping cumbersome because I had to open multiple browser tabs to research prices by different retailers. Comparison shopping became much easier once I learned how to compare prices using Google Shopping. What is Google Shopping? Google Shopping allows consumers to comparison shop for desired products betwee...

Newly funded OfficeTogether looks to help employees return to work safely

Amy Yin doesn’t foresee startups resuming a five-day-a-week in-office work schedule, even after COVID-19 has been battled back. It’s probably a safe bet. Many companies have learned this year that employees can be just as productive, working from home. More, employees — much as they might miss their own desks — no longer want to sit in a traditional office all the time. According a survey of 2,300 tech employees conducted this past summer, just 7% of respondents said they wanted to head into wor...

We already knew that Halo Infinite was delayed until next year. Initially intended to launch alongside the new Xboxes, Microsoft announced back in August that it would instead ship in 2021. Exactly when in 2021, though, was still anyone’s guess. A new blog post from 343 Industries narrows it down a bit: it’ll be released in Fall.
