    Is the Gig Economy Working?

    Many liberals have embraced the sharing economy. But can they survive it? Not long ago, I moved apartments, and beneath the weight of work and lethargy a number of small, nagging tasks remained undone. Some art work had to be hung from wall moldings, using wire.

    The Windows 10 Store is an awful experience for core gamers, and it needs to change

    While some progress has definitely been made with Microsoft's app store offerings, the current format is clunky at best, counter-intuitive at worst. Our Executive Editor Daniel Rubino recently discussed the notion on the latest episode of Ask Dan Windows, and it's a question I often see thrown around on reddit, Twitter, and other networks. Step into any PC gamer's community, and you will see near-universal revulsion for the Windows 10 Store as a solution for delivering video games...

    In all likelihood, a Martian colony won't resemble a silver city rising in stark contrast to the planet's signature red soil. Instead, it will blend right in, especially if a new, intriguing discovery pans out. Engineers from the University of California in San Diego have created bricks composed of simulated Martian regolith (soil). Amazingly, these basic building blocks turned out to be stronger than steel-reinforced concrete!
