March is named after the Roman god, Mars. Why? Because it’s the time of year when ancient countries would resume military campaigns that had been interrupted by winter.

Indigo, Canada’s biggest book-and-lifestyle chain, was felled by a cyberattack last month. Customer information was safe, thankfully. However, Indigo’s employee data was compromised.
Meanwhile, Microsoft has partnered with OpenAI to create an AI-powered Bing search engine. (Remember Bing?) They’ve rolled it out to only a few testers, but early reports detail unsettling interactions with the chatbot.
