One of the most exciting additions to Microsoft’s upcoming Windows 10 operating system is the IE browser killer, Project Spartan. We’ve been excited for months and months, but Spartan was never even meant to be the new browser’s final name, but today Microsoft revealed the official moniker of its next-gen window to the internet—Microsoft Edge. Microsoft VP Joe Belfiore announced the new name on stage during the Build 2015 keynote, a three-hour talk session filled with software news, coding, and other amazingly interesting-yet-boring info. Whereas Project Spartan was a fun nod to Master Chief from the Halo series—much like Microsoft’s Cortana voice assistant—Microsoft Edge sounds like something an angsty teenager would think up. There is some reasoning behind this name change at least, as Belfiore describes: The name refers to the idea of being on the edge of consuming and creating. It refers to the developer notion of being closer to the … [Read more...] about Microsoft Edge Is the Official Name of the IE-Slaying Spartan Browser

“When he’s gone, I’m gone.” That’s what Harrison Ford said on the Today Show recently when asked who he’d like to see replace him as Indiana Jones. “Nobody is going to be Indiana Jones, don’t you get it?” he said, about four minutes into the interview, linked below. “I’m Indiana Jones. when I’m gone, he’s gone. It’s easy... this is a hell of a way to tell Chris Pines Advertisement Which is, one, a very funny way to assert your own claim to one of your most famous roles. And, two, oddly specific? While Ford may be right—that no one should or will be taking over the role of Indiana Jones any time soon—one has to wonder why he picked Pine’s name out of a hat. Does he know something we don’t?

There’s a lot to be said for getting away from it all, and with today’s Nice Price or Crack Pipe Tundra you ought to be able to get away and back again no matter where away is. Let’s see if that rugged nature aligns with its urbane price tag. With Ford going all-in on trucks crossovers and SUVs here in the U.S., it’s interesting to note that about half their current lineup of those models—the Transit, Transit Connect, and Ecosport—were originally designed with other markets in mind. Ford’s former full-size van, the long-running Econoline, went away with the Transit’s introduction in 2013, while the Transit Connect filled a void left by the elimination of the original Ranger pickup and, years earlier, the Aerostar minivan. Advertisement We looked at a very sweet seeming 1997 Aerostar XLT AWD on Friday and boy did it bring back the memories. It seems that a lot of you grew up with an Aerostar in the family, and while some had less than … [Read more...] about At $26,000, Is This 2010 Toyota Tundra Camper Totally Over The Top?
