With Michigan, Nevada and Pennsylvania certifying their election results this week, President-elect Joe Biden is a step closer to being officially declared the next president of the United States after the election was called on Nov. 7. That fact hasn’t stopped people on Facebook, Twitter and YouTube from claiming President Donald Trump was the election’s true winner. 

Social media is littered with bogus claims — many of them amplified by President Trump — that voter fraud ran rampant, that a supercomputer changed votes and that thousands of zombies voted. None of this is remotely true. The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency, created by the Trump administration to protect US computer and communications networks against hackers, including threats to elections, called the vote “the most secure in American history.” Election officials across the country have echoed that assessment.

Two Entrepreneurs Are Levelling The Playing Field For Small Business

Technology continues to play an enormous role in the speed of business. Transforming industry and its players is a function of adoption. Adoption, in turn, is highly dependent on resource and capital. Small businesses have been and continue to be the casualties in a dynamic market that tends to favour the larger players with money and influence. Steve Lau and Rameez Ansari, co-CEOs of AutoLeap fully intend to change the game for small business.

In both Canada and the United States, small business (by definition, 500 employees or under) make up 99.9 % of the business population.

Download bugs and weird defaults are making it a pain for some people to get the PS5 to install and play the next-gen version of Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War.

As first reported by Eurogamer over the weekend, PS5 players with the Cross-Gen bundle or Ultimate Editions of the latest Call of Duty are struggling to access the PS5 version of the game.
