Campus Creepers, and no, I don't mean people

There are creepers crawling around campus. Peering into your windows at night, they lurk. Public Safety has neither a method nor any desire to track and monitor these delinquents. They are allowed to wander campus freely day and night. We have become complicit with our safety. Students, faculty, and administration are all accountable for this oversight. It’s easy to brush aside when there’s just one. One isn’t a problem on its own, but these evil creatures gather together, increasing their potential to wreak havoc on this campus exponentially. I suppose we could wait it out till winter. The cold weather reduces the chance that they will cause problems, but can we last 'til then?

Is Apple really innovating?

TechNews Writer
Sep 17, 2018
This week, Apple released three new iPhones, namely iPhone X-R, iPhone X-s and the iPhone X-s Max, as well as the new Apple Watch series 4. For a while now, I have been waiting on Apple’s next move since my last iPhone was the 3GS, and my current phone is a Samsung Galaxy Note 5 that I got at the end of 2015. As anyone that was hyped for Apple’s event on September 12, I became annoying around my friends. My friend Iris Uwizeyimana, who was trying to keep her calm around me, asked me the question of “The iPhone looks just like the previous one. Has Apple really innovated since Steve Jobs died?” I tried to concoct an answer to say what I was thinking while being still affected by the hype of the event. However, I had to think with the facts.

Why "Cyberpunk 2077" will suck

Technews Writer

Usually when a game does a gameplay reveal at Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3), the game developers try to make sure that the game looks way better than it actually is. Do you remember a game called Watchdogs? Ubisoft, the company behind Watchdogs, made sure that the gameplay reveal for that looked extra crispy and extra smooth. The audience was left at the edge of their seats, and despite a deplorable actual game, the company managed to sell 10 million copies. Interestingly enough, CD PROJEKT RED, another game developer known for its game series The Witcher, revealed their gameplay footage at E3, and interestingly enough, it seems like they did not try hard to make the game seem interesting. They really showed what CyberPunk 2077 is at its core: a boring RPG.

In order to facilitate this introduction process, the Society of Physics Students (SPS) chapter at Illinois Tech hosted a “Physics Department Meet-and-Greet” event on Tuesday, September 11.
