'Aquaman' is a weird, wild party that overstays its welcome

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Tue, 12/11/2018 - 19:01

For about the first half of its running time, Aquaman feels like a fake movie. (And yes, I know it was already a fake movie on Entourage.)

To be clear, I mean that as a compliment. There's a knowing silliness to Aquaman that helps gloss over its sometimes-shaky CG and over-complicated mythology, and a willingness to go for broke that keeps us guessing about what we'll witness next.

When a petulant Patrick Wilson, as King Orm, barks about becoming an "Ocean Master," you don't need to know what that means to laugh at the ridiculousness. When the camera soars over a glittering underwater realm and settles on an enormous octopus pounding away at the drums, you don't need any context at all to be amused by the spectacle.  Read more...

Google CEO Sundar Pichai appeared before the House Judiciary Committee on Tuesday morning.

Netflix's year-end rankings reveal the most binged shows and movies

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Tue, 12/11/2018 - 16:07

Whatever year-end content you're devouring this December, let's be real – you want to know about your year in Netflix. The streaming service is notoriously private about numbers, but did release a list of the top TV and film titles we binged this year.

SEE ALSO: The 8 best returning TV shows of 2018

Though Netflix released dozens of original films this year, the year-end press release doesn't rank overall viewership; it only names the three that were rewatched with the highest frequency.

Of course, social media has to be a metric, so Netflix also investigated the Instagram audience growth of stars who appeared in a Netflix film or series during the year. Yup, we follow all of them. Read more...

A bug left your Microsoft account wide open to complete takeover

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Tue, 12/11/2018 - 15:38

Bug bounty hunter Sahad Nk recently uncovered a series of vulnerabilities that left Microsoft users’ accounts — from your Office documents to your Outlook emails — susceptible to hacking.

While working as a security researcher with cybersecurity site SafetyDetective, Nk discovered that he was able to take over the Microsoft subdomain, http://success.office.com, because it wasn’t properly configured. This allowed the bug hunter to set up an Azure web app that pointed to the domain’s CNAME record, which maps domain aliases and subdomains to the main domain. By doing this, Nk not only takes control of the subdomain, but also receives any and all data sent to it. Read more...

Fortnite and Stormy Daniels dominated Pornhub in 2018

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Tue, 12/11/2018 - 15:00

Ah, December, a perfect time to sit back and reflect on what kind of porn you watched in 2018. 

Pornhub, the online adult video site has released a nice, long look at the year across the site, and while there are a lot of things that seem typical for a porn site, there are a number of results that are pretty eye-catching. 

For starters, Pornhub claims that by the time 2018 draws to a close, the site will have been visited 33.5 billion times this year, none of those by anyone you know, surely. In addition, the site averaged around 92 million visitors a day, which is equal to the combined populations of Canada, Australia, and Poland. Read more...

Even this IRL store is an automated, digital experience

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Tue, 12/11/2018 - 15:00

Tally is a "shy" robot. 

Unlike the gregarious, extroverted Pepper robot seen roaming in shopping malls and interacting with customers and answering questions, Tally quietly does its thing with the occasional beeping sound. 

SEE ALSO: Anki Vector review: A tiny robot with a big personality

The unobtrusive self-driving machine can be spotted at the first U.S. location of the French sporting goods store Decathlon in downtown San Francisco. The lanky machine on wheels is the first fully autonomous inventory robot, meaning it roves aisles and tracks RFID chips on nearly 10,000 products. 

It's not supposed to really interact with customers – that's a duty left to the store's workers. But it's friendly enough, with a short message on it that says "Hi, I'm Tally!" and digital eyes to give it a human-like appearance as it roams around. Read more...

These drones can open doors and let the rest of the swarm in

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Tue, 12/11/2018 - 14:10

Researchers at Stanford University and EPFL have developed drones that can anchor themselves onto a surface and lift objects that are 40 times their own weight. The FlyCroTugs — aka flying, micro, tugging robots — use gecko-inspired adhesive to adhere to smooth surfaces and micro-spines that look like tiny fish hooks to latch onto rough surfaces.

Here's why Bryan Cranston thinks you should be allowed to be angry

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Tue, 12/11/2018 - 13:31

Bryan Cranston thinks it's time we all were allowed to be mad as hell – even in public. 

The Breaking Bad star, currently starring as a very angry man in the play Network on Broadway, thinks that we could all benefit from allowing ourselves to get angry. 

Talking to Stephen Colbert on The Late Show, Cranston explained why we need to normalise anger in order for social change to happen. 

"True anger displayed socially is not acceptable," Cranston said. "When you get mad, perhaps when you see injustice [...] you don't want to be tolerant, you don't want to be accepting. You want to say: 'No. This makes me angry.'" Read more...

Theresa May getting locked in a car pretty much sums up how Brexit's going

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Tue, 12/11/2018 - 12:57

Just when you thought that nothing else could possibly go wrong in the endless parade of obstacles that is Brexit, Theresa May's gone and got  locked in a car. 

On her way to meet German Chancellor Angela Merkel in a bid to rescue her Brexit deal, May got trapped momentarily inside her vehicle. Merkel looked on, waiting for May to exit the car, while officials kept trying the door handle to extricate her.

You couldn't make it up, honestly. 

Here's some glorious footage of this rather unfortunate moment:
