Finally, scooters that shame you for riding on the sidewalk - 11時間前  Mashable

Even if it doesn't feel safe to ride electric scooters in the street, that doesn't mean you can terrorize pedestrians at 12 mph.  The rise of e-scooter-sharing inevitably means people breaking the rules. It happens. But now, e-scooter giant Lime is cracking down on riders' potential flagrant disregard for staying off the sidewalks while renting its battery-powered two-wheelers.  The small but zippy electric vehicles are supposed to be in the bike lane alongside cars. Lime's other rules and regulations include wearing a helmet, no double-riding, and no drinking and riding. But for now...more

Steve Carell plays an awkward political consultant in Jon Stewart's 'Irresistible' trailer - 4日前  Mashable

Jon Stewart spent years as a comedian and talk show host, breaking down the headlines of the day — and now it looks like he's channelled his political knowledge into a new feature film. The trailer for Irresistible, the second movie to be written and directed by Stewart since 2014's Rosewater, dropped on Friday morning. It revolves around a Democrat political consultant (Steve Carell) who decides to coach a former marine to run for mayor in Wisconsin, after seeing a video of him standing up for immigrants during a town meeting.

Deepfakes are getting easier to make and the internet's just not ready - 11日前  Mashable

One of the coolest videos I’ve seen in the past year is a YouTube clip from The Late Show with David Letterman featuring actor and comedian Bill Hader.  Or... was that actually Tom Cruise? It's hard to tell sometimes because they keep seamlessly switching back and forth. So, what exactly are you watching here? Well, someone took an unedited clip of Letterman interviewing Hader and then swapped in Cruise's face using artificial intelligence. The video is what is known as a deepfake, or manipulated media created through the power of AI.  Deepfakes can be as straightforward as fa...more

Stephen Colbert breaks down the last 48 hours in impeachment news - 12日前  Mashable

It seems that barely a day goes by without some new impeachment updates, and the last 48 hours have been absolutely no exception — with articles officially being presented to the Senate, and Giuliani associate Lev Parnas appearing on the scene to make some damning new implications about Trump. "For weeks, Republicans have ignored mounting evidence that Trump knew everything that was happening with the Ukraine scheme, and Democrats have been praying for the other shoe to drop," Stephen Colbert says in the above clip from Thursday night's Late Show. "Well, last night an entire Footlocker f...more

Five things you didn't know about the iPad on its 10th anniversary - 1日前  Mashable

On January 27, 2010, the late Apple CEO, Steve Jobs, presented a device to the world that looked a lot like a giant iPhone that didn't make calls. A few months later, the first iPad was made available to the public, more or less kicking off a tablet revolution, the effects of which can still be felt today. By now, every big name in tech has some me-too product resembling the iPad in its portfolio. Some of which are budget-friendly and accessible, while others are more experimental and eye-catching. Regardless, it's impossible to deny the impact that decade-old Apple announcement had on the tec...more

Watch Kyle the rooster totally lose it when it's time to eat - 4日前  Mashable

Kyle is the baddest rooster on the farm, and we think this video proves it. It captures the moment a man's life likely flashed before his eyes when he was out feeding his flock. Kyle doesn't play games when it's time to eat. Out of seemingly nowhere, Kyle turns on the afterburners and charges at the videographer, who, against all odds, appeared to make it out unscathed. Cluck cluck, motherfucker. Kyle is, as it turns out, all of us when we're hangry. The video also features a delightful appearance from a bird named "Birdie Sanders," who minds its business while the chaos ensues. What did we ta...more

Facebook still hasn't paid that $5B FTC fine, but what happens when it does? - 12日前  Mashable

Facebook still owes the U.S. government $5 billion.  The social media giant has yet to make good on its debt to the American people following a record fine levied by the Federal Trade Commission in July. While the specifics of the settlement are still being challenged, it's worth asking what happens next with all that money — assuming this all eventually gets worked out.  I mean, it's not like Mark Zuckerberg can just walk one of those giant novelty-sized checks over to the the While House. However, don't think for a second that the exact manner and timing of the payment hasn't...more

Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey is gently putting his foot down about adding an edit button. As flagged by The Verge, Dorsey recently sat down for Wired and answered a bunch of reader tweets. While no one asked why President Donald Trump is allowed to continue threatening war in violation of Twitter's Terms of Service, someone did ask about the edit button and Dorsey answered succinctly: "No."  Dorsey actually elaborates as to why Twitter still hasn't incorporated the edit button and he does make a good point: "You might send a tweet and then someone might retweet that and an hour later you comp...more
