Get ready for more autonomous vehicles to start delivering Domino's pizza

Autonomous cars are now bringing pizza pies instead of groceries to customer's homes.

On Monday, the self-driving company Nuro announced a partnership with Domino's Pizza in Houston. Nuro has been dropping off Kroger groceries in the Texas city since earlier this year. Kroger uses the self-driving vehicles to haul grocery bags to online shoppers in other cities like Phoenix.

Now Houston residents can order a pizza through the Domino's app and then track the pizza as it makes its way to their home without a driver in sight. Once someone makes an order, they're given a PIN code to unlock the compartment on the Nuro vehicle and retrieve their pizza from the vehicle. Remember, there's no delivery person to bring it to the doorway.  Read more...

The DNC's latest attempt at being relatable on Twitter has everyone cringing

Political parties aren't exactly known for their "hip" social media accounts, but most maintain some semblance of class.

Every once in a while, the Republicans or Democrats will post something so humiliating that Twitter users have no choice but to reply. Take, for example, this tweet that the official Democratic National Committee Twitter account posted on Saturday morning and which has since attracted highly understandable amounts of groaning from Twitter. 

The tweet features a phone wallpaper with President Trump's face and the words "Boy Bye" (a famous Beyoncé lyric from the song "Sorry") placed on top of it. Users can download the kewl wallpaper for their phone by texting a five-digit number.  Read more...

Study links teen sexting with risky behavior and worse mental health

A major new study found worrisome associations between teen sexting and mental health as well as risky sexual behavior. Youth who sext, compared to those who don't, were more likely to have multiple sexual partners, experience anxiety and depression, and drink alcohol, take drugs, and smoke. They were also less likely to use contraception. The associations were stronger in younger adolescents. 

But before teens (and their parents) panic about how sexting might upend their lives, they should know that the scientists who conducted the research don't yet understand whether sending or receiving sexually explicit messages directly led to any of the negative outcomes.  Read more...

Best 4K TV deals this week: Vizio, LG, Samsung, and $3,000 off Hisense

It's officially "checking your weather app to see that yes, it's going to rain this week" season.

Unless you live in the handful of states where showers are few and far between, you'll likely be greeted with multiple thunderstorms over the next month or two. And the only thing thunderstorms love more than warm weather is cancelling your outdoor, warm weather plans.

You can stay in Tony Stark's cabin from 'Avengers: Endgame' on Airbnb for $800 a night

Sorry, but Robert Downey Jr. is not included. 

Tony Stark's digs can now be yours— for a couple of nights at least. An Airbnb listing for the cabin that was used in the filming of Avengers: Endgame recently came out of the woodwork. It's advertising the house for a cool $800 a night. However, before it was discovered, it was a lot cheaper.

After Redditor Brayud posted the listing, Entertainment Weekly reached out to confirm that it was indeed the same cabin. The owners apparently then hiked the price from $335 a night after they realized how in demand it could be, given the nature of Avengers super fans, according to AVClubRead more...

Samsung asks QLED TV owners to run a virus scan

If you own a smart TV, chances are you've hooked it up to the internet in order to access popular apps such as Netflix. But by doing so, you're also taking a risk, as your TV might get infected with malware. That's what Samsung thinks, and it's suggesting you run a regular virus scan on its TVs.

"Scanning your computer for malware viruses is important to keep it running smoothly. This also is true for your QLED TV if it's connected to Wi-Fi! Prevent malicious software attacks on your TV by scanning for viruses on your TV every few weeks," Samsung tweeted from its @SamsungSupport Twitter feed on Monday. Read more...

'Big Little Lies' Season 2 is ironically about telling the truth

One of the fun things about the ending of Big Little Lies Season 1 was that almost everyone got away with their big, little lies. The open-endedness of that finale, with questions remaining about Madeline’s affair, Celeste and Jane’s shared trauma, and the assumed aftermath of Perry’s death wrapped the story in a dreamy, what-if haze that hovered satisfyingly over the grey Monterey shore. Some secrets, the show seemed to say, are necessary for a happy life. 

It wasn’t the most moral ending in the history of television, but it was very effective. Until, of course, Season 2 came to blow it all to hell.  Read more...

Need a new bed? The Leesa memory foam mattress is $105 off on Amazon.

TL;DR: The queen size of Leesa's supportive bed-in-a-box mattress typically retails for $995, but you can score it on sale for $890 — a savings of $105.

We've managed to narrow down some options for side-sleepers and people suffering from back pain, but the truth is, the jam-packed mattress market makes for a pretty overwhelming shopping experience when you need a new bed.

Realistically, the process should work sort of like the dating service in Black Mirror's season 4 episode "Hang the DJ" (but, like, not as bleak): You'd spend a certain amount of time with select mattresses, and an all-knowing virtual assistant would eventually pair you with an "ultimate compatible other" based on the data it compiled while you were sleeping. It would be easier than sorting through all the brand and style options on your own, no? Read more...

'Cadence of Hyrule' grooved its way into my Zelda-loving heart

Whoever decided to imbue The Legend of Zelda with rhythm-based combat is an absolute genius.

Cadence of Hyrule: Crypt of the Necrodancer is the catchiest game I've ever played. A unique thing to say about a video game, but it's true. The game's tunes and grooves have anchored themselves into my soul, and even after stepping away for a few hours, I'm still nodding my head to the beat of one of the overworld songs.

From the creators behind Crypt of the Necrodancer, Cadence of Hyrule is one of the most inventive Zelda games to date, working kind of like a classic 2D Zelda game but with a persistent soundtrack that guides the way players move and fight. The key is staying on beat. Read more...

Instagram makes it easier to take back hacked accounts

Instagram is finally addressing a huge problem on its platform: hacked accounts. 

The company says it is making a series of changes that will make it easier for people to regain access to a hacked account. The update comes almost a year after Mashable first reported that a wave of bizarre hacks had hit Instagram users, leaving them little recourse to get their accounts back.

With the newly announced changes, which are currently being tested ahead of a wider rollout, Instagram will allow users to access its account recovery tools directly in the app, even if a hacker has changed their account information. So when a person is unable to login to an account, Instagram will prompt users to enter information associated with your account like your email address or phone number. (Users can also access this via "need more help" in the app's login screen.) Read more...

Xbox Game Pass players on PC won't need Xbox Live Gold for online games

Five words a reporter never wants to hear during an interview: "That's a really good question."

It's something I was told multiple times during a chat at E3 2019 with Liz Hamren, Corporate Vice President of Gaming Experiences and Platforms at Microsoft; and Jason Beaumont, program manager for Xbox Game Pass. I always appreciate the ego boost, but "That's a really good question" is often code for "I need a minute to properly frame the non-answer I'm about to offer you." Either that, or "Let's move on."

In this case, the question related to Xbox Game Pass. Specifically, how Xbox Live Gold subscriptions can continue to exist in their present form alongside Xbox Game Pass and its new PC-friendly counterpart. Read more...

'Game of Thrones' score deliberately hinted at an alternate ending for Jaime and Brienne

Game of Thrones ended with a a storm of contention, particularly around the final arcs of Jaime Lannister and Ser Brienne of Tarth, but the show's composer confirmed that he imagined a very different ending for them.

Ramin Djawadi, who scored all eight seasons of Thrones, loves a good musical motif, and he snuck a deliberate repetition of Robb and Talisa's Season 2 theme into Brienne's final scene. Brienne and Jaime may not have ended up married and happily ever after, but they could have, and that's what makes their entire story so heartbreaking.

"It's just a hint of what their relationship — if they had stayed together, if he was still alive — what it could have been," Djawadi told Insider. "What they could have become. That's why I put that in there." Read more...
