Company sues Black Hat conference after getting laughed off stageOpen in a New Window

TwitterFacebook

If at first you don't succeed, try filing a legal complaint against the conference where you were called out on your bullshit. 

So appears to be the thinking of Crown Sterling, a cryptocurrency company whose CEO was heckled at the annual Black Hat security conference and is now pursuing legal action against event organizers. The supposed grievance? Allowing talk attendees to challenge CEO Robert Grant as he tried to pitch them on so-called quasi-prime numbers and "Time AI™."

Which, according to people who actually understand this stuff, is a joke — a possibly pernicious one at that. In a Twitter exchange with Grant, respected International Computer Science Institute researcher Nicholas Weaver implied the company was comprised of "snake-oil vendors." Read more...

We went to the 'Telling Lies' set and saw how a new medium for storytelling gets madeOpen in a New Window

TwitterFacebook

The language doesn't exist yet to describe (or even accurately categorize) what Sam Barlow is making. Which is probably why all our conversations, both during and after an exclusive set visit back in January, is a lot of uhm's as we both grasp for the right words, and come away with poor approximations that capture only a fraction of its ingenuity.

Barlow is adamant about it being, in fact, a video game — though it mostly consists of live-action actors who you get to know through videos on a desktop. Technically it's an FMV (full-motion video) game, but only as an afterthought. I guess it also falls under the umbrella of interactive TV, but don't even think about comparing it to Bandersnatch. My personal favorite way of referring to it is as "interactive found footage," like Blair Witch but detective and playable. Read more...

It's time to watch the beluga camOpen in a New Window

TwitterFacebook

They sound like cosmic radio transmissions, sent from another solar system, or galaxy. 

But no, these resonating squeaks and whistles are emanating from the beluga whales swimming in the waters off of Churchill, Canada, situated along the vast Hudson Bay in Manitoba. Cameras beneath boats livestream the explore.org beluga whale cam while an underwater microphone, called a hydrophone, records the belugas' effusive, and at times otherworldly, vocalizations.

"They are called the 'canaries of the sea' for how chatty they are," said Alysa McCall, a staff scientist with Polar Bear International, which operates the camera-rigged beluga boats. Read more...

Tom Brady simply can't pull off this hatOpen in a New Window

TwitterFacebook

Tom Brady is no Diane Keaton, that's for damn sure.

Obviously, he is not an iconic, award-winning actress, director, or producer. But he is also not able to pull off hats in any shape, style, or color — unlike Keaton, who I occasionally refer to as Queen of Hats.

I bring this up now because Brady, who is a New England Patriots quarterback, recently spoke to the media after an NFL preseason game against the Carolina Panthers. He decided to wear a very interesting hat to the press conference, and it is my belief that the hat simply does not work for him.

Subway riders befriended a cute little bug on the trainOpen in a New Window

TwitterFacebook

Bugs on the New York City subway system rarely get the star treatment, but one lucky insect got vaulted to fame on Thursday when passengers discovered it on their train.

Instead of meeting an instantaneous, gruesome death at the hand, shoe, or newspaper of a commuter, something weird happened to the little green creature. Not only was it spared, but passengers actually picked it up and held it in their handsSamantha Ruddy caught the wholesome moment and shared it for the entire Twitterverse to enjoy. 

There was a cute bug on my train and instead of freaking out everyone in my subway car just took turns holding it. New York is the dumbest and I love itpic.twitter.com/sk6YtW5u0V

"No Man’s Sky" provides a soulful antidote to our anxious timesOpen in a New Window

TwitterFacebook

Ad content by Hello Games

Open up any newspaper, listen to any current events podcast, stream any pundit’s YouTube channel, and you’ll see it’s no secret we live in anxious times. In a world where every other second brings another push notification demanding your attention, it can be difficult to focus intensely on one thing for more than a few minutes, let alone escape into your own world for an hour or more at a time.

Wouldn’t it be nice to blast off into space for a little while, do some exploring and catch your breath before returning to real life again? After all, in space, no one can hear you scream — at your phone, or your inbox, or your boss. That’s the escape No Man’s Sky offers, if you’re ready to suit up and blast off into a distant galaxy Read more...

Facebook emails shed light on early days of Cambridge Analytica scandalOpen in a New Window

TwitterFacebook

A newly revealed document shows Facebook employees discussing Cambridge Analytica before the story exploded in the media. 

NBC News' Dylan Byers reported on the document Friday morning. Not long after Byers' report dropped, Facebook published the document via its press site, under the defensive-sounding header, "Document Holds the Potential for Confusion." 

Here is what the document contains: In emails from September and October 2015, Facebook employees discussed the possibility of "data scraping" by the "sketchy" Cambridge Analytica. One employee says "there are likely a few data policy violations here." Read more...

In praise of the uncool teen girls of cinemaOpen in a New Window

TwitterFacebook

Welcome to Summer Cooldown, our weeklong tribute to all things cool in pop culture. Through our role models of chill and our misguided attempts to emulate them, to the DGAF heroes so defiantly uncool they’re ice cold, we’ll attempt to define the undefinable and celebrate the characters and questions that shaped us.


If you were a tragically uncool boy growing up in the 1990s or 2000s, you probably saw a lot of yourself onscreen.

There were the sex-obsessed nerds of American Pie, the awkward BFFs of Superbad, the oddballs of Napoleon Dynamite, the studious overachievers of Can't Hardly Wait or Rushmore or 10 Things I Hate About You or Almost Famous. Beloved or bullied, the male geek was a teen-movie staple.  Read more...

TL;DR: The powerful Neato Robotics D750 Pet Edition robot vacuum is on sale for £449.99, saving you 50% on list price.


We all love our pets. They are little bundles of love that need to be worshipped on a daily basis, but it's not all good.

If you have a dog, cat, or something else that's covered in fur, you'll know only too well how far and wide the stuff gets. Seriously, you'll spend a few minutes on the sofa, and wham, you're completely covered in little fluffy hairs that stick to your clothing like glue. 

Now, this isn't the fault of your pet, and we're certainly not suggesting that you should blame them for being cute and soft, but you do need to do something about the layer of hair covering your house. You need to invest in a vacuum cleaner that can handle your pets. Read more...

5 iPhone settings to change nowOpen in a New Window

TwitterFacebook

You're probably using your iPhone wrong. 

Okay, maybe not wrong wrong, but there's a very good chance you could be using your phone a lot more efficiently. When was the last time you took a moment and customized your settings beyond the default?

If the last time you really messed with your settings was when iPhones still had home buttons, then you're probably missing out on some of the best new features from the last few iOS updates. Here are a few things worth changing.

1. Customize your Control Center

Apple started allowing users to customize Control Center in iOS 11, but it's added more customization options since then. You can change the Control Center shortcuts around by going to Settings —> Control Center and then adding to your list. The exact shortcuts you want will vary based on what apps you use the most, but here's a few of my must-haves: Read more...

Miley Cyrus opens up about Liam Hemsworth in lengthy Twitter threadOpen in a New Window

TwitterFacebook

It's been almost two weeks now since the news broke that Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth have separated.

On Thursday, the singer posted on Twitter about it for the first time. Over an 11-tweet thread, she spoke about the mistakes she's made in the past, while denying that the marriage ended because of cheating.

"The truth is, once Liam & I reconciled, I meant it, & I was committed," Cyrus wrote. "There are NO secrets to uncover here. I’ve learned from every experience in my life. I’m not perfect, I don’t want to be, it’s boring. I’ve grown up in front of you, but the bottom line is, I HAVE GROWN UP. Read more...

Taylor Swift's 'Lover' is a dreamy and thrilling adventureOpen in a New Window

TwitterFacebook

Midway through Taylor Swift’s exciting and excellent Lover, we come upon the perfect "Cornelia Street," a gorgeous ode to both the tentative first moments in a relationship, when "we were a fresh page on the desk / filling in the blanks as we go," as well as the creeping fear that the blissful memories may be tainted forever when the love dissolves: "I’d never walk Cornelia Street again / that’s the kinda heartbreak time could never mend."

All the elements Swift does best are in play here: lyrics that zero in on small, specific details that once she sings about them feel universal; a pointed pen that makes thoughts about hope and longing feel special and intoxicating; a chorus you know you’re going to hum for the next year; and emotional central questions that drive so much of her music because it drives so much of our feelings: What happens now? Is this real? Can I put it all back together again? What if? Read more...

Welcome to Summer Cooldown, our weeklong tribute to all things cool in pop culture. Through our role models of chill and our misguided attempts to emulate them, to the DGAF heroes so defiantly uncool they’re ice cold, we’ll attempt to define the undefinable and celebrate the characters and questions that shaped us.


For a long time, there were certain hobbies and interests that were deemed untouchable by the general public. Comic books, video games, hard sci-fi, high fantasy. You know, nerd stuff.

But now those nerdy things are all the biggest and most popular things in entertainment. The Marvel Cinematic Universe. Star WarsFortniteGame of Thrones. They're all titans of modern pop culture. Read more...

College can be hard on your mental health. Here are 7 ways to cope.Open in a New Window

TwitterFacebook

In our Back to School series, Mashable tackles the big issues students face, from mental health to representation to respectful communication. Because returning to the classroom is about more than buying school supplies. 


People may joke about the carefree lives of college students, but the unique stress of succeeding in higher education is real. Between managing course work, finding a circle of supportive friends, figuring out your identity as a young adult, and paying for the privilege of a diploma, college can be the equivalent of a pressure cooker.  

Indeed, research shows that a growing number of college students say they've experienced a mental health condition, including panic attacks and anxiety. It appears that the rate of mental health diagnoses is increasing, and that students feel more comfortable talking about their experiences and seeking help than previous generations of college-age youth.  Read more...

This is what Porsche's all-electric Taycan will look like from the insideOpen in a New Window

TwitterFacebook

Screens.

That's likely the first thing you'll notice in these images of the Porsche Taycan's interior: Lots and lots of screens.

The Taycan, Porsche's first all-electric sports car, will officially be unveiled on September 4, and — aside from concept images — we still don't know how it looks from the outside. But now, Porsche has shared several images of the car's interior, as well as the philosophy behind its design. 

The basic variant of the car will have three screens: A 16.8-inch curved screen with the instrument cluster, a 10.9-inch infotainment display in the middle, and an 8.4-inch touchscreen with haptic feedback in the centre console. The passenger display that's visible in the images (Porsche didn't say how big it was) and a rear-seat, 5.9-inch display, are optional.  Read more...
