Amazon Prime price just rose, did you notice?

Amazon Prime price just rose, did you notice?

Depending on how much you use Amazon for your shopping, Amazon Prime could be a very worthwhile service. Amazon charges $99 per year for access to Amazon Prime - which offers free two day shipping on a lot of items, along with movie and music streaming (among other things) - but a couple of years ago, it rolled out a monthly subscription option for those who can't afford to pay a yearly subscription all at once. As with most monthly vs. yearly subscriptions, you total cost works out to be more if you go the monthly route, but you have the benefit of being able to spread that cost out instead of paying it all in one big transaction.

Wells Fargo accounts drained as former CEO calls Bitcoin a pyramid scheme

Former Wells Fargo CEO called Bitcoin a pyramid scheme this week on CNBC's Squawk on the Street.

Wells Fargo put out a brief statement on the matter of the computer glitch, suggesting that it was due to Bill Pay transactions that their accounts were either drained completely or in overdraft.

Age of Empires: Definitive Edition will be dead on arrival thanks to Microsoft

Age of Empires: Definitive Edition will be dead on arrival thanks to Microsoft

As far as strategy games go, the Age of Empires series ranks among the best of them. Age of Empires II is arguably the most fondly remembered game in the series, and a few years back, it was remastered to play nice with modern systems and displays. Now Microsoft is looking to do the same thing with the first Age of Empires game, and after being hit with a delay that pushed it beyond its original October launch window, we now have a new release date. Unfortunately, that release date becomes a lot less exciting when you realize that Microsoft is playing the exclusivity game with this launch.
