Black Friday 2018: Save $80 on the latest Apple iPad at Walmart - 1時間前  Mashable!

Sometimes, Black Friday deals are on older products that retailers are trying to push out of their inventory. These products are still very good, but not necessarily the latest and greatest.  This isn't one of those deals. Walmart has the newest model of the Apple iPad on sale for just $249, or $80 off its retail price, making this one of the best Black Friday deals we've seen so far.  SEE ALSO: All the best Black Friday 2018 sales, right in one place Retailing for $329, the Apple iPad (2018) features the company's powerful A10 Fusion chip for easy multitasking and zippy performance ...more

Apple reportedly looked at a lower-priced streaming TV dongle - 7時間前  Mashable!

What is Samsung Ambient Mode and how does it work? - 10時間前  Mashable!

This past summer, Samsung thought it would be a good idea to break folks' TVs in the United Kingdom. It wasn't real, of course – it was an attempt to show off a core feature of its 2018 lineup: Ambient Mode. It spiked some interest in the feature, leading people to wonder – what does it actually do, exactly? I was wondering the same thing, so I paid a visit to Samsung's loft in NYC – a full showroom meant to resemble a real apartment, right in the Meatpacking District. The cozy loft came complete with appliances and other niceties, including QLED TVs.  I was shown a demo...more

The midterms had record voter turnout. Should Snapchat get credit? - 13時間前  Mashable!

My partner's arms are longer than mine, so, on election day this year, I made him take the #IVoted selfie.  Now, I'm not one for selfies, usually. But I decided to share my act of civic participation on social media earlier this month for two reasons. First, because I was genuinely jazzed to vote. It was my first time doing so in person! It was exciting! And second, I'd just learned that posting photos with sticker proof of your buy-in to the democratic system is actually an impactful way to encourage others to vote.  SEE ALSO: Youth voter turnout spiked during the midterms.

Some babies look elderly. Reddit has found a way to celebrate them. - 16時間前  Mashable!

This post is part of Hard Refresh, a soothing weekly column where we try to cleanse your brain of whatever terrible thing you just witnessed on Twitter. We've all come across babies who seem older than they really are — by about, um, 70 years. Often, it's temporary. I, for one, looked like my mother's tax accountant until I was six-months-old. And I've come across more than one infant who looks like they'd rather play solitaire on the computer than make dumb faces at millennials. The subreddit r/OldBabies has 'em all.

Samsung's Galaxy S10 sounds like it's gonna be more of everything. That could be a problem. - 17時間前  Mashable!

A whole new year is right around the corner, and you know what that means for Samsung: a new Galaxy phone. As the company prepares to launch its next flagship Galaxy phone (expected to be called the Galaxy S10) early next year, several reports of leaked features suggest the plan of attack is the same as it's been: overwhelm rivals with tons of new features.

The cure for the Commuter's Blues - 18時間前  Mashable!

   Another hour spent behind the wheel, inching your way through your city’s clogged streets—all while imagining being home already, getting a head start on cooking dinner, spending time with your family and friends, catching up on your favorite show. Or, running late to the most important meeting of the week, stuck behind a driver who apparently wants to see just how slowly he can drive without making his car come to a complete stop. Sound familiar? Call it the commuter’s blues. Whether you’re on your way to the boardroom or the classroom—or anywhere be...more

This travel jacket beloved by Kickstarter supporters is on sale for Black Friday - 1時間前  Mashable!

Kickstarter can be a fickle mistress, and you never truly know how backers will respond to a project. For instance, we know that they love exploding kittens — they threw nearly $9 million towards a card game based on that premise — and that they're willing to give more than $55,000 to a random guy who just wanted potato salad. But who could've predicted those success stories? What does it take to make a Kickstarter megahit? (Give us a call when you figure that out, please and thanks.) There's one project in particular, however, whose success should surprise no one, and th...more

YouTube to double pre-roll ads, so there's less interruption later - 5時間前  Mashable!

Amazon doesn't have much to say about its customer data leak - 14時間前  Mashable!

Amazon thinks it's already said more than enough, thank you very much.  Starting on Nov. 20, the Seattle-based behemoth began notifying an unknown number of customers via email that, well, something had happened to their data. Specifically, that those customers' names and email addresses had been "disclosed." But anything beyond that? Haha wouldn't you like to know. The company declined to comment when asked by Mashable how many customers were affected, what caused the leak, when the leak was discovered, when it was fixed, and to whom or to what the customer data was disclosed.

How nice and tidy. Facebook's head of public policy, Elliot Schrage, sent a memo to Facebook employees in which he took the blame for hiring public policy agency Definers. Conveniently enough, this happened after he had already announced he was planning to leave Facebook.  TechCrunch acquired and published the memo Tuesday. You can read it in its entirety here. Definers is the Republican-affiliated firm the New York Times recently exposed for using opposition research tactics to spread negative news about Facebook's competitors.

Buckle up, Transformers fans. Looks like the Autobots and Decepticons are touching down much sooner than we anticipated.  In a surprise Wednesday announcement, Paramount Pictures scheduled an absolute truckload of Bumblebee preview screenings for Dec. 8—nearly two weeks before the Dec. 21 nationwide release.  The best part? These showings are all over the United States and Canada (not just in the typical entertainment hubs of New York and Los Angeles), and totally open to the public. The only catch is that it's only happening for one day, and all screenings will happen at 7:00 ...more

Tumblr iOS app removed over child pornography, users complain unrelated blogs are being purged - 19時間前  Mashable!

Chaos at Tumblr. After users reported the Tumblr iOS app disappeared from Apple’s App Store over the weekend, the microblogging platform initially stated nothing more than they were “working to resolve the issue.” Days later, with the iPhone app still MIA, Tumblr has published a longer statement identifying the issue: child pornography on the platform. In a statement on the announcement page of its help center, Tumblr writes: “We’re committed to helping build a safe online environment for all users, and we have a zero tolerance policy when it comes to media featur...more
