Present! The minions, Facebook vs Biden, Windows XP in dark mode and more

Biden accuses Facebook of “killing people”

Social media has never gotten along very well with the presidents of the United States. And Trump is not the only one who has already been in evidence on more than one occasion. Without going any further, the ex-president is prohibited from entering these social networks for several years. And the current US president is on the way to achieving something similar.

In an interview with the current president of the United States regarding the COVD pandemic, the president was asked his opinion about the message that social networks are spreading regarding the pandemic. And his answer was clear: “they are killing people.”

Do you like Minions? Now you can play with them in Minecraft

The Minions, those little yellow characters from the Gru saga, my favorite villain, have won the affection of a large number of followers. If something characterizes Minecraft, it is the customization capacity it offers to players. Everyone has complete freedom to adapt the program to their tastes. In addition, it also offers us from time to time new content packages with which to customize our adventure.

Microsoft and Illumination have been working together to release a new Gru and the Minions pack for Minecraft. Starting today, all players can find this bundle on the Marketplace. Of course, it is not free, but we will have to pay for it with 1340 coins or 7.99 euros. Once redeemed, the content is ours forever.
