Universal Basic income, or UBI, is going to be a necessity sometime in the future. In its simplest form, UBI is when the government gives enough money every month to each citizen to live above the poverty line. This allows every single citizen to afford food, shelter, and other basic human rights even if they never work a day in their lives or if they work 80 hours a week.
Lately, I’ve been thinking a lot about UBI: advantages, disadvantages, and overall why I think that it will eventually become a necessity. I’ve seen a lot of poor arguments against UBI, and I’ll be discrediting some of the more common ones in this article, but before I do, we need to zoom out and take a larger look at the direction society and technology is heading.Read Full Article

I’ve run Kodi (or back in the day, XBMC) for a decade now on various devices. I started running it directly on my main computer but eventually moved away from a desktop to independent Kodi boxes. I started with a hacked first generation AppleTV, then moved onto a Cubox i4pro, and currently, have an AMlogic powered Matricom mbox Q.
But here we are, in 2017, and it’s time for an upgrade! I’ve spent a long time researching the best Kodi boxes on the market for 2017, and here is what I’ve found.Read Full Article
What can I say? Halloween has been and always will be my favourite holiday, and the best part about Halloween? Watching some of the Best Halloween Movies!

So, I finally got around to starting, and finishing, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child yesterday and I have to say that I enjoyed it a lot more than expected. The internet and Harry Potter fans as a whole seem to loathe the story, citing that it reads more like fan fiction than true canon – and I have to agree with them on that point.
