There’s sad news coming from Montana’s Fish, Wildlife and Parks department: a parasite is killing off large quantities of fish in Yellowstone River, and as a result all activities on the water in both the river and its tributaries has been banned.

‘Below’ game delayed again, no one knows when it will launch

Chrome apps for Mac, Windows and Linux are being phased out

According Google, only about one percent of the users on those platforms are ‘actively’ utilizing packaged Chrome apps, and so as you probably guessed, there’s not much sense in continuing support for them. For this reason, Google has decided that all new Chrome apps published starting later this year will only be available on Chrome OS; support for existing apps for Mac, Windows and Linux will be phased out over the next couple of years.
