Poor guy strikes out in the most embarrassing way possible - 1時間前  Mashable

Striking out always sucks. Striking out like Josh Fuentes, however, is just straight-up embarrassing.  Batting for the Hartford Yard Goats (yes, that's a real team) on Friday night against the Binghamton Rumble Ponies (also real) in a minor league game, Fuentes watched the ball slip out of the pitcher's hand.  SEE ALSO: This outstanding play is already Major League Baseball's catch of the year Then, for some reason, he swings—and is called out by the umpire.  Ouch. The way he slumps over at the end is all of us after doing something stupid.  Even worse, that was i...more

Happy 25th birthday, Apple Newton, you beautiful failure - 6時間前  Mashable

Exactly 25 years ago, on May 29, 1992, Apple CEO John Sculley went on stage during the CES show in Chicago and launched a tablet.  If that sentence sounds all wrong, that's because a lot has changed in the quarter decade since. If you even remember Sculley as Apple CEO, you're probably thinking of the man who pushed Steve Jobs out of the company. And in the nineties, no one had tablets. And isn't CES typically held in Las Vegas? To that we say: Yes, yes and yes. The tablet Sculley presented that year was the Newton, a device that had some potential, but essentially came out a decade and a...more

President Trump finally calls Portland attack 'unacceptable'—but slyly avoids his base - 18分前  Mashable

On Friday, two men, Ricky John Best and Taliesin Myrddin Namkai-Meche, were brutally murdered while trying to confront someone hurling anti-Muslim epithets on a comm in Portland. The two have been widely hailed as heroes, but not by President Donald Trump — until Monday.  Trump broke his silence with a tweet from the @POTUS handle.

'Injustice 2' v.s. the worst Superman game of all time - 4時間前  Mashable

Superman for the N64 is considered by many to be one of the worst games of all time. But, fortunately for Superman, it wasn’t the Kryptonian’s last appearance in a video game.  Superman 64 is bad. It’s really bad. It’s so bad it’s kind of fun, but not really, because it’s so, so bad. He’s headlined games of similarly mediocre quality since then, but his best appearances have been thanks to the fighting game genre. And last week, Nether Realm Studios brought us the next iteration of those games: Injustice 2, which came out to stellar reviews and so...more

Memorial day is supposed to be the day Americans come together to pay respect to the people who've died while serving the country—or, if you're Ivanka Trump, make popsicles. On Sunday, the Ivanka Trump brand posted a painfully tone deaf tweet just in time for the holiday.  SEE ALSO: 8th graders refuse to take a photo with Paul Ryan because they don't "want to be associated with him" What a better way to honor fallen soldiers than with a nostalgic childhood treat and a little "adult beverage?"

Look back at Wonder Woman's long and winding journey to the big screen - 6時間前  Mashable

Next week, Wonder Woman hits theaters with her-ever first live-action solo adventure. And it only took her 76 years to get there.  Although she's only a few years younger than her Justice League teammates Superman and Batman, Wonder Woman has had far worse luck making the leap to movies. But it's not for lack of trying.  SEE ALSO: Final 'Wonder Woman' trailer: More action, more weapons, and Dr. Poison To the contrary, Wonder Woman is the payoff to decades of on-again, off-again efforts to bring the Amazonian princess to the big screen.
