Hearthstone nixing two cards we’ve taken for granted too long

Two of Hearthstone's most powerful cards, Vanish and Mind Blast, will soon head for the Hall of Fame. These cards have been abnormally powerful in the most basic sense of the phrase since I started playing the game - they're so good, they'd be in almost every deck against which I played, regardless of intent.

iPadOS shows where Android tablets went wrong

iPadOS shows where Android tablets went wrong

One of the most surprising things to come out of WWDC is arguably iPadOS. Until just a few hours before the event, there was very little evidence of its existence. Sure, Apple has been making iOS on iPads, especially iPad Pros, more and more capable but few probably expected it would come out with a slightly modified and dedicated version of iOS for larger screens.
