If you've never seen an elephant baby ultrasound before, here's your chance - 1日前  Mashable

Asha, a 25-year-old Asian elephant residing at the Oklahoma City Zoo, is expecting a baby in February 2022. The zoo released a video of the calf's ultrasound, even pointing out the growing baby's head, trunk, and legs. If you're wondering why we have to wait over a year to meet Asha's calf, it's because Asian elephants have a gestation period of 645 days...or around 22 months.  While the calf is taking its sweet time to enter the world, the zoo stated in the video that both mother and baby are "as healthy as can be," and that they'll be posting future updates. Plus, it isn't every day you...more

Author hides short story in 1000 copies of his book, Twitter turns detective - 3日前  Mashable

If you're going to sign 1000 copies of your new book, you might as well make the most of that inevitable wrist ache. Last month, writer Will Maclean's debut novel The Apparition Phase was released into the world. To mark its publication, independent London bookstore Goldsboro Books released 1000 signed and exclusive first editions to members of their monthly book club. But rather than just putting his signature on each one, Maclean had another idea. "On the title page, you'll see a single word handwritten by me," reads a note from Maclean distributed with each first edition. "That word, althou...more

Need to clear up some PS5 space? This 14TB external hard drive is $120 off for Black Friday. - 4日前  Mashable

SAVE $120: This 14TB hard drive (yes, 14TB) is a great way to free up some space on your go-to gaming console's internal storage — it's $120 off at Best Buy for Black Friday. If you were lucky enough to get your hands on a PlayStation 5 (seriously, congrats), you've probably already run into a big issue, or are at least nearing it: Running out of storage space. While the console is pretty amazing in every other aspect, the measly 825GB internal SSD — which, when accounting for the console's operating system, leaves only about 667GB for actual games — is simply not enough spa...more

15 years ago, the Xbox 360 launched in the desert. It was a wild event. - 7日前  Mashable

"Everyone here who wants a 360 will be able to leave with a 360." In these new console-starved times, when pre-orders are hard to come by, it's hard to imagine anyone uttering such an outlandish statement. But that's exactly what a Best Buy rep said 15 years ago, on Nov. 22, 2005, as Microsoft launched the Xbox 360 at a blockbuster "Zero Hour" event in the Mojave Desert. "Our goal with the launch event is to reward the gamer by creating the ultimate Xbox 360 oasis," former Xbox exec Peter Moore said at the time. "Gamers at 'Zero Hour' will have bragging rights to say 'I spent over 24 hours at ...more

Maisie Williams asks about Bitcoin. Memefest ensues, and Elon Musk joins the party. - 13日前  Mashable

Maisie Williams – also known as Arya Stark, daughter of Lady Catelyn and Lord Eddard, acolyte of the Faceless Men, you know the one – is considering buying some bitcoins.  On Monday, she asked her Twitter followers whether she should "go long on bitcoin" (going long, in traders' lingo, means betting that bitcoin's value will go up). Of course, this little poll caused an onslaught of memes and one-liners never before seen on this world or the world of Westeros.  should i go long on bitcoin ? — Maisie Williams (@Maisie_Williams) November 16, 2020 Game of Thrones ref...more

Google's Australian addition to its mobile AR puts koalas in your house - 18日前  Mashable

If you can't go to Australia to pet the koalas, the koalas will now come to you — sort of.  Google has added eight Australian animals to its collection of mobile AR creatures, allowing users to size up animated 3D renditions of the country's native fauna. It's an entertaining little update, and a good tool to help you determine which ones you could take in a fight. (The answer, by the way, is "none of them," because the Australian animals that won't straight up disembowel you with their feet are so adorable that punching them will send you directly to Hell.) To see the life-sized an...more

Gaze upon these good dogs at the 2020 National Dog Show - 3日前  Mashable

The National Dog Show was a much smaller affair than usual this year. Due to the coronavirus pandemic, fewer than 600 dogs competed for the honour of top dog — down from almost 2000 in 2019. There were no spectators either, with only officials, handlers, security personnel and NBC's film crew were allowed inside the Greater Philadelphia Expo Center. But the dog show must go on, and the Kennel Club of Philadelphia made the best of a rough situation. In the absence of living spectators, the stadium's seats were instead filled with cardboard cutouts of humans and dogs alike. Most were dogs ...more

What 'The Crown' Season 4 gets wrong about the Troubles in Northern Ireland - 14日前  Mashable

When you're watching The Crown, there's always one question that springs to mind: did that actually happen?  There's no shortage of drama in the fourth season of the Netflix show, but just how historically accurate is this on-screen dramatisation of the events that have defined the royal family's lives?  Well, when it comes to The Crown's portrayal of The Troubles in Northern Ireland — three decades of violent sectarian conflict between unionists and nationalists from the late '60s to late '90s — in Season 4, episode 1, there's a number of pretty crucial historical errors...more

It looks like ICE abolished its own Twitter account by mistake - 17日前  Mashable

ICE just separated itself from its own Twitter account.  The United States' preeminent child-separation agency was briefly silenced Thursday, when for a short while the Twitter account belonging to the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency appeared to be deleted. The reason, implied a Twitter spokesperson, is that someone with access to the account changed its "age" to under 13.  "Twitter requires people using the service to be 13 years of age or older," a Twitter spokesperson explained over email when Mashable asked what happened to the ICE account. "If an account's birthdate i...more
