There's a secret dog hidden in your YouTube video timeline - 13時間前  Mashable

YouTube hasn't ever been one to skimp on the Easter eggs, but this is a new one for me. It's hidden away on the timeline that charts your progress through a video. If you highlight that timeline and hold left — either left on an attached game controller, or the left arrow key — in certain versions of YouTube (I'll get to that in a minute), you can summon a dog. SEE ALSO: Please enjoy these Pope-like dogs wearing Crocs on their impossibly small heads It takes a bit, so be patient. If you've watched any of the video, it'll rewind first.

'Mortal Kombat 11' is so much more than just a fighting game - 1日前  Mashable

Mortal Kombat tops the very short list of video games that have cemented themselves as permanent staples of pop culture. Whether it's pro wrestlers, Wreck-It Ralph, Zayn Malik's Met Gala outfit, or Lil Wayne and Skrillex tracks, its influence far exceeds the confines of a fighting game. You'd think after nearly three decades, it'd get old. But the hype for Mortal Kombat 11 is still just as fatal.

In a new video, Simone Giertz addresses her brain tumor's return - 1日前  Mashable

In a video uploaded to YouTube on Friday, Shitty Robots creator Simone Giertz elaborated on what she disclosed on Twitter last week: that her non-cancerous brain tumor, for which she had brain surgery last year, has grown enough that she now plans to undergo radiation treatment. Giertz explained that her doctors decided to leave a piece of the tumor behind in a section of the brain where performing surgery was particularly risky. That's the piece that, over the past eight months, has grown. "We knew that there was a risk it would grow down the line, which it has," she said. "It's just that the...more

The FTC confirmed it had opened an investigation into Facebook in March.  Now, The Washington Post reports that investigation could result in a massive fine for the company.
