Chrome vs. Firefox: Which internet browser is better? - 17分前  Mashable!

Web browsers are our windows into the internet and yet many people just stick with the one they know. They rarely, if ever, try out alternatives that might make their lives easier. You may think Google Chrome is the only browser you'll ever need, but Firefox might have something to say about that. In one corner, we've got Chrome — by far the most popular browser in the world and controlled by one of the planet's biggest tech companies since its launch in 2008. In the other corner, is Firefox, an open-source option run by the non-profit Mozilla since its inception in 2002. One browser onl...more

All the best sites for streaming movies in the UK - 12時間前  Mashable!

The question of what movie to watch is a loaded one. The list of movies to watch bends to the will of passwords you've acquired for various streaming services whether your own or from a generous friend or family member.  Most streamers have a staple service — the one that's been solidified into our monthly budget like bills and rent (probably Netflix for most people in the UK). But your reliable option probably doesn't have every single film you want to watch, especially when titles are constantly flip-flopping which service they call home. Wired marks 2018 as the start of the strea...more

Gab's failed attempt at cleverness becomes the most hilarious self-own - 20時間前  Mashable!

It's important to pause sometimes and remember to smell the roses, or admire the head-shaking idiocy of a social network's ignorance. The latter is on the menu thanks to Gab, the embattled and recently hacked Twitter-alike that's favored by the far-right. On Saturday morning, the network's Twitter account posted an image that was perhaps meant as some sort of anti-gun control commentary. The image features a Norman Rockwell-esque painted scene in which a family gathers around the backyard grill in anticipation of their meal. Notably, everyone in the scene — including the two kids and, hi...more

Billionaire announces another change of plans for his civilian SpaceX moon trip - 19時間前  Mashable!

Japanese billionaire Yusaku Maezawa has apparently had a lot of time to overthink things — like "what is art?" things — during quarantine.  In 2018, fashion magnate Maezawa (who goes by MZ) signed up to be the first rider of SpaceX's commercial trip to the moon aboard the still-in-development Starship. He has bought out all 14-seats for the multi-day journey, set to take place in 2023, that will be the first mission ever taking civilians around the moon and back. MZ's original plan was to take eight artists on the trip who would then make art inspired by their journey. In a Yo...more

Facebook facing federal investigation for alleged racist hiring practices - 20時間前  Mashable!

Once again, Facebook is under government scrutiny.  Just a few weeks before CEO Mark Zuckerberg is set to testify in front of Congress regarding online misinformation, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (or EEOC) has opened a "systemic" probe into the company's racial hiring and promoting history, Reuters reported. That "systemic" designation enables the EEOC to devote more resources to the investigation, which could potentially result in a lawsuit against Facebook. This is the follow-up to a complaint filed against the company in July 2020 by Oscar Veneszee Jr., a Black Facebook...more

NASA named the Mars rover's landing site after famed Black sci-fi author - 22時間前  Mashable!

NASA's name for the Mars location where the newly arrived Perseverance rover touched down is the "Octavia E. Butler Landing." The technically informal moniker comes from the Perseverance mission team's scientists, who named the site after the acclaimed author of multiple Hugo- and Nebula-winning sci-fi stories. Butler rose to prominence during the '80s, nabbing prestigious awards for her short fiction, notably the novelette Bloodchild. But it was her two-part series from the late '90s — Parable of the Sower and Parable of the Talents — that cemented her status as one of the greats....more
