Elite Dangerous Is Making Its Horizons Expansion Free

Elite Dangerous is making Horizons, its 2015 expansion, free for all players. Horizons added the ability to land on planets, use ground vehicles and bases, and craft weapons, alongside numerous other upgrades–all of which will soon be available to everyone with the base game on PC, PS4, and Xbox One.

From October 27, Horizons will be made free to all players–right now, it costs $30. If you bought the expansion at an earlier point, you’ll be given an exclusive paint job for your ships, called Azure. It can be applied to all 41 ships in the game.

HP Elite Dragonfly Vs MacBook Air, Dell XPS 13

The Hewlett-Packard Elite Dragonfly is one of those rare products that is actually better than advertised and gets better as you use it.

Why it still works for me after six months:

Really (really) light (about 2.2 pounds): Shaving half a pound off a standard 2.8 pound 13-inch laptop without sacrificing anything is the equivalent of an auto manufacturer reducing the weight of an SUV by 500 pounds without giving up cargo space or convenience.

This is reinforced every time I pick it up, put in my backpack, take it out of my backpack or just carry it around the house.

(By comparison, the 2020 MacBook Air is 2.8 pounds. And the mid-2019 13-inch MacBook Pro is 3 pounds.)

Battery life doesn’t suffer: good battery life

What the Old Establishment Can Teach the New Tech Elite

It is unlikely that Mark Zuckerberg, Jeff Bezos and the other lords and ladies of Silicon Valley spend any time in English churchyards. But if they were to visit these delightfully melancholic places, the first things that they would encounter would be monuments to the fallen of the Great War. Their initial emotion, like anybody else’s looking at these morbid plinths, would rightly be one of relief. It is good that the West’s young men are no longer herded into uniform and marched toward machine guns.

If they looked harder, however, today’s elite would spot something else in these cemeteries. The whole of society is commemorated in stone: The baronet’s heir was shot to pieces in Flanders alongside the gamekeeper’s son. Recall that in the controversial D.H. Lawrence novel “Lady Chatterley’s Lover,” Lady Chatterley is driven into the arms of the local gamekeeper in part because her husband, Sir Clifford,
