Here's what you need to get your home ready for holiday guests - 1時間前  Mashable!

In case you haven't heard: Walmart is already celebrating Black Friday. We've started seeing tons of great deals and we're still more than a week away from actual Black Friday. Some of the sales are so great that it's worth snatching them up now rather than waiting until after Thanksgiving. For example, there is an absolute boatload of vacuum cleaners on sale at Walmart right now, including robot, upright, and stick vacuums and carpet cleaners. Vacuums make good gifts, especially for someone who is newly living on their own. They're also essentials if you're hosting any holiday gatherings. (Yo...more

Electric toothbrushes are on sale at Walmart (*hint stocking stuffer hint*) - 1時間前  Mashable!

TL;DR: Electric toothbrushes from Oral-B and Philips Sonicare are on sale at Walmart — save up to $30, plus snag an additional rebate. While big gifts are usually the ones that someone has asked for, stocking stuffers are the ones that aren't necessarily exciting but that will come in clutch eventually. An electric toothbrush is a prime example. We doubt anyone had a new toothbrush at the top of their list, but they'll sure as hell be thankful they have one when they realize they're no longer spending $10 on a new disposable toothbrush every month. Skipping disposable toothbrushes ...more

Baby Yoda has inspired some freaking adorable memes - 1時間前  Mashable!

Warning: This post contains spoilers for The Mandalorian. If wish to remain unspoiled you do, only pain will you find.  The Mandalorian, Disney's live-action Star Wars TV series, is in full gear on the new streaming platform Disney+. And thanks to a brand new, 50-year-old baby alien resembling a key Star Wars character, the show can only get cuter from here. We know next to nothing about this mysterious green alien baby, but we'll be darned if it doesn't look exactly like a mini version of Yoda, one of the most beloved characters in all of Star Wars. OK, we know he's probably not actually...more

Stalkerware is a toxic tool for domestic abusers. This coalition wants to stop it. - 1時間前  Mashable!

Human rights and privacy groups, as well as internet security companies, are teaming up to fight stalkerware.  Stalkerware is, as Mashable's own Jack Morse described it, "a noxious class of software designed to surreptitiously run in the background of smartphones" in order to "keep tabs on everything you do." And it's added a terrible new dimension to domestic violence.  "Like other forms of domestic abuse, the use of stalkerware on phones affects people from all walks of life," explained Eva Galperin, the Electronic Frontier Foundation's director of cybersecurity, to Morse earlier t...more

The world's largest battery is about to get even bigger - 6時間前  Mashable!

Tesla likes big batts and they cannot lie, and while I go and sit in the corner and think about what I just wrote, here's some related news for you. The world's largest grid-scale lithium ion battery is about to get 50 percent bigger, with the expansion of the Hornsdale Power Reserve site in South Australia. Tesla completed installing the battery, a Powerpack system with 100 megawatts of capacity, in South Australia in Nov. 2017. Connected to Neoen's Hornsdale Wind Farm near Jamestown, three hours’ drive from Adelaide, the Powerpack system was meant to alleviate some of the state's sever...more

The purrfect new 'Cats' trailer leans into its happy feline death cult - 1時間前  Mashable!

Cats the musical is hard to spoil because at the absolute core of the show, barely anything happens. Buncha cats show up, they introduce themselves, and at the end one of them gets the delightful privilege of dying. With that in mind you have to hand it to the new trailer for the film adaptation of Cats, which lays out this premise fairly early and spends the rest of its time letting its digital fur technology run wild.  "Milk!" bellows one cat, after Idris Elba turns up looking like a sex pest in furry clothing. "Yeah!" moans Jason Derulo in what appears to be a neon nightclub sequence f...more

TL;DR: Samsung 4K HD Smart TVs are up to 47% off as part of Amazon's Happy Holideals event.  Black Friday may not be until next week, but it is officially Amazon Holideals season — which means it's also holiday movie marathon time.

Bird hopes 'helmet selfies' will make scooter riders safer - 1時間前  Mashable!

Selfies aren't something you'd normally associate with safety, but scooter-sharing company Bird aims to change that.  On Tuesday, the company introduced the "helmet selfie," and, no, it's not a helmet with a camera attached. Since Bird knows its riders can be reckless with their safety, it's dangling a bit of a lure in the form of free rides and discounts for users who take a "helmet selfie." All you need is a helmet on your head at the end of a ride. Simple as that. Then snap a shot and send it off to Bird.  The helmet selfie feature is already available for riders in Washington, D....more

If you happened to watch Jeopardy! Monday night, you bore witness to a horrifying moment. Three (3) contestants failed to guess the easiest answer of all time: "Who is Tom Hanks?" The question came up under the category "Biopics" and was worth $200. "In A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood, beloved children's show host Mr. Rogers is played by this beloved actor."

Facebook's new app Whale lets you "make your own memes" with "pro tools." So why haven't you heard about it? Well, the company apparently doesn't want everyone to know about it just yet. According to a report by The Information, Facebook's NPE (New Product Experimentation) group launched the app, and it's currently only available on the Canadian App Store.  The official description says the Whale app is free to use with "no hidden subscription pricing," and it allows users to create memes with their own images or pictures from the app's stock photo library.

Amazon is offering some of its best devices at seriously low prices - 6時間前  Mashable!

TL;DR: The Echo Plus is on sale for £44.99 on Amazon, saving you 68% on list price. Amazon's "Countdown to Black Friday Sale" has been pretty decent so far, without really impressing.
