Tom Brady's trainer and business partner Alex Guerrero says the Patriots quarterback believes he could play until he's 46 or 47
Robert Deutsch-USA TODAY Sports Tom Brady's long-time trainer and business partner Alex Guerrero recently said that the Patriots quarterback now believes he could play until he's 47 years old. Asked about Guerrero's comments, Brady was a bit more cryptic, saying, "I am going to keep playing as long as I can." Brady has said for some time that his goal is to play until he is 45, but given his success in recent years, no one would be surprised if he continued to push that date back. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. Tom Brady is already the oldest quarterback in the NFL, but according to his long-time trainer and business partner Alex Guerrero, the Patriots legend has no plans on hanging up his cleats any time soon. Brady, 42, has said in the past that his goal is to keep playing until he's 45, but while speaking with WEEI's "The Greg Hill Show" on Thursday, Guerrero teased that Brady has already set his sights further into the future.See the rest of the story at Business InsiderNOW WATCH: 5 things about the NFL that football fans may not knowSee Also:The Patriots ran a trick play where Julian Edelman threw a gorgeous touchdown pass to take a lead over the EaglesThe best value plays in your DraftKings lineup for Week 11 of the NFL seasonThe NFL suspended 3 in connection with the Myles Garrett-Mason Rudolph melee, but people are appalled that the Steelers QB got off scot-free

A new 'Half-Life' game is finally coming out after 12 years of waiting — but the catch is that it's for virtual reality only
Valve The good news: Valve confirms that a new "Half-Life" game is in the works, with a formal debut to come on Thursday morning. The weird part: Valve says that it's a "flagship VR game," a strong indication that it'll only be available for SteamVR, its PC virtual reality platform. Regardless, the confirmation of a new "Half-Life" game ends a 12-year drought for the very many fans of the series. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. In 2007, mega-hit first person shooter "Half-Life 2: Episode 2" ended on a massive cliffhanger, with the evil alien Combine having achieved a massive victory that left the heroic Gordon Freeman and sidekick Alyx in an impossibly sticky situation.

Save water (and money) with this smart home monitor
Between all of our apps, streaming devices, Bluetooth speakers, and energy-sucking decorations, paying for utilities each month can be...brutal. In fact, the average household spends roughly $70 a month on the water bill alone. That number might not seem terribly significant, but when you add it up, that's $840 a year — a pretty significant chunk of cheddar, and that's just for one of your many bills. Pair that with the fact that water conservation is becoming increasingly more important, (especially in areas susceptible to droughts) and being conscientious of your water use is, quite frankly, more important than ever. That's where Flume comes in. This easy-to-install smart water monitor pops right onto your home's water meter and tracks your water use in real time. You can check in on your use through Flume's companion app directly from your smartphone, which constantly gathers and reports the data back to you. If there's a leak or damage detected, you'll instantly be notified so you can quickly resolve the issue. Flume breaks down exactly where your water is going, so you can figure out how to cut back in areas where you're over-using it and save big on your monthly water bill. And, if you've already got a smart home or speaker setup, you can ask Alexa about your water status, use, and budget. Keep tabs on your water use with the Flume Smart Home Water Monitor and give the earth and your wallet some relief. You can grab it now for just $169. Read the rest
