Let’s control-z some tears.

Look, we know that a huge theme in the Harry Potter series is the acceptance of death as an inexorable part of life.

Facebook Reached An Unbelievable Milestone This Week
A million users isn't cool, you know what's cool?

1 billion people used Facebook on Monday. With 7.125 billion people on earth, that means almost 1 in 7 people logged into the social media site.

This is the total number of people who used the site on that one day, different from the Daily Active User figure the company posts with its financial earnings that reflects a 30-day average.

Founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg took to Facebook on Thursday to announce the company’s achievement:

We just passed an important milestone. For the first time ever, one billion people used Facebook in a single day.

On Monday, 1 in 7 people on Earth used Facebook to connect with their friends and family.

When we talk about our financials, we use average numbers, but this is different. This was the first time we reached this milestone, and it’s just the beginning of connecting the whole world.

I’m so proud of our community for the progress we’ve made. Our community stands for giving every person a voice, for promoting understanding and for including everyone in the opportunities of our modern world.

A more open and connected world is a better world. It brings stronger relationships with those you love, a stronger economy with more opportunities, and a stronger society that reflects all of our values.

Thank you for being part of our community and for everything you’ve done to help us reach this milestone. I’m looking forward to seeing what we accomplish together.

I finally tried a PS4 and realized how behind the Xbox One is
shutterstock_150047447
I’ve been an Xbox fan since I can remember. When Halo was released back in 2001, I saved as hard as I could to buy my own console and overstayed my welcome at friends’ houses until I had enough cash to get my own. When the Xbox 360 was released a few years later, I got it immediately. I had three Xbox 360 consoles over the years; weathered the red-ring-of-death drama, sold one to make rent during university and got another a year or two later when Halo 4 came out. Naturally, when I heard about the Xbox One I figured…
