While exchanging banter on Twitter is all fun and games, it could also get you into trouble. Just ask this unfortunate employee of Frederick County Public Schools in Maryland who was recently fired for tweeting a witty joke. As part of her role as the district’s web experience coordinator, Katie Nash was also responsible for handling the FCPS’s Twitter account. Following feedback from students suggesting the schools’ tweeting tone came across a tad too dry, Nash “took it to heart” to spice things up and engage with the pupils in a fun way. “We had received feedback from some students in a focus…[…]

It’s been over 12 years since Valve released its smash hit FPS game, Half-Life 2, and fans have been raucously clamoring for a sequel ever since.

Given that the company is notoriously secretive about its projects, the revelation of an upcoming game from the makers of massively popular titles like Portal and Dota 2 after several years is huge.

For the launch of its new Switch portable console, Nintendo announced a radically different take on its Mario game franchise with Super Mario Odyssey. It sees our favorite Italian plumber explore New Donk City, which is inhabited by humans and more like the real world than other environs he’s ever been in. YouTuber CrowbCat painstakingly recreated the trailer for the new game in Grand Theft Auto 4’s Liberty City, complete with a life-size Mario character. You’ll want to watch the original before checking out CrowbCat’s hilarious remake, which shows how quickly things could go south for Mario if he actually…[…]

In an effort to strengthen its smartphone platform brand, Google is bringing its Android One program to the US later this year, reports The Information. Three people briefed on the company’s plans for the project noted that the first US-bound device, manufactured by an unidentified hardware maker, will arrive sometime around the middle of 2017 with a price tag of about $200-$300.

Both Donald Trump and Mike Pence would like to invite all of us to the Inaugural Welcome Concert and Swearing in Ceremony on Friday. The President- and Vice President-elect took to Facebook to extend this honor to anyone wanting to sign up to willfully receive communication from Trump via email. The invitation was a nice gesture. It seems, however, that most find themselves with prior obligations this Friday. On the plus side, there should be some empty seats if you plan on attending. You can grab an email invitation here.Or just read more coverage about: Facebook
