Cryptocurrencies Baffle Experts, Leave Casual Investors Behind

At this time just last year, cryptocurrencies were all the rage. Bitcoin was the only one to become a household name, but a huge number of alternative currencies were cropping up all over.

Rolls Royce Looks to the Sky

Rolls Royce, the legendary british car and engine maker, has released plans for a flying taxi. The flying taxi will be able to take 4 passengers at speeds up to 250 mph for 500 miles.

E3 Recap: Microsoft Steals the Show

I spent way too much time following this year’s E3 and was shocked by the outstanding performance of Microsoft and the Xbox One platform. The firm announced several new features in addition to blockbuster trailers like “Halo Infinity” that they expect will differentiate them from their competitors. Xbox One sales are sluggish with just over 39 million units sold to date and the Xbox One has fallen far behind Sony production of the Playstation 4. Sony has sold more than 76 million units of the Playstation 4 up to this point, almost doubling Microsoft. The massive differential between Sony...
