Hope is an app for millennial women to keep their BFFs close — but not too close

8 December, by Mike Butcher[ —]

8 December, by Darrell Etherington[ —]
gof-gif-compressor Perhaps you’re like me and you wasted (or spent wisely) hours and hours of your youth playing Escape Velocity and its various sequels on an early Mac.
