Pokemon Go players who were hoping to capture an Articuno better do so quickly, as it looks like this creature may not be available for much longer. This past weekend, following the end of Pokemon Go Fest, Articuno was added to Raid Battles around the world.

17 stunning works of art created using only Microsoft Paint (MSFT)

On Monday, news broke that Microsoft is planning to end support for MS Paint later this fall. For the first time since it was introduced 32 years ago along with Windows 1.0, the program won’t receive any future updates.
