Hawkeye episode 3 recap: Marvel’s latest TV show lands a bullseye

(Image credit: Marvel Studios) While previous episode ‘Hide and Seek’ lost momentum as soon as Clint and Kate went their separate ways, ‘Echoes’ makes sure they never leave each other’s orbit. It’s the smartest move the writing team could have made, because the chemistry between Jeremy Renner and Hailee Steinfeld is so strong you’d still be hooked if none of their scenes were punctuated by blockbuster-grade stunts.

And while there’s nothing like being taped to a pair of coin-operated horses when you need to deliver some… Read More

Big tech’s first generation of founders starts to step aside

Massive tech companies like Google, Amazon, Netflix, and more have had a huge impact on the way we live our lives, and have had incredible levels of financial success. Another thing many of these companies have in common is that their founders are no longer necessarily in control; they’ve either stepped down, started sharing power with others, or in some cases possibly even been pushed out. This week alone, Twitter co-founder Jack Dorsey stepped down as CEO, and Salesforce founder Marc Benioff became a co-CEO. They’re not alone. Amazon — In July 2021, Jeff Bezos officially handed the CEO position of Amazon over to former Amazon Web Services head Andy… Read More

The best AT&T plans for December 2021

1. AT&T Unlimited Starter Plan | $65 per month AT&T’s unlimited data plans start with the basic Unlimited Starter plan.
