Parkland survivor David Hogg's home was swatted in a dangerous prank

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Tue, 06/05/2018 - 18:32

David Hogg's family home was swatted on Tuesday.

Someone called the Broward Sheriff's Office in Florida on the Parkland survivor's home, claiming that there was a hostage situation at the house. According to the local ABC affiliate, Coral Springs Fire Rescue arrived to find that the call was a prank.

"A SWAT team responded and cleared the home," Broward County Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Gina Carter told USA Today. "We are investigating who made the call."

Hogg and his mom weren't home — they're in Washington, D.C. to accept the Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights award. He graduated from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School on Sunday and is touring the country with other Parkland students to advocate for stricter gun control laws. Read more...

Forget the Notes app: 9 places we'd rather celebrities put their apologies

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Tue, 06/05/2018 - 18:13

What do Lena Dunham, Logan Paul, and, most recently, Drake have in common? 

They've each at some point employed their iPhone Notes apps to pen statements and apologies for all the world to see. Those longwinded chunks of text are an inevitable part of most celebrity scandal life cycles.

SEE ALSO: These extreme Post-it notes will definitely get your point across

Now, in my humble opinion, the Notes app is strictly to be used for grocery lists, makeshift diary entries, and lists of shows your friends tell you to watch, though you never will. Celebrity drama would be much more interesting if famous people would break free from Notes app mold and try something new. Read more...

Trick your brain into falling asleep faster with this white noise machine that's on sale

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Tue, 06/05/2018 - 17:59

Whether it's your partner's incessant snoring, your neighbor's reluctance to simmer down their nightly karaoke sesh, helicopters hovering above your neighborhood, or the mysterious racket your roommate keeps making that you're afraid to even ask about, there is no shortage of noises that can prevent you from falling asleep. While you can always wear earplugs to drown out unwanted sound, science says that white noise can actually help lull you off to dreamland.

SEE ALSO: Is this weighted blanket the key to a better night's sleep?

Strange, alien-looking deep sea creatures revealed in new ocean videos

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Tue, 06/05/2018 - 16:58

While traversing the seafloor in a pressurized bubble 3,200 feet beneath the ocean, marine photographer Gavin Thurston spotted an odd creature, about the size of a football. 

"It looked like a mix of four animals," said Thurston.

He shone a light on it, for a better view.  

"Clearly this beasty — whatever it was — didn’t like the light," he said, and it danced away on its silken thread-like legs, out of the glow.

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Tue, 06/05/2018 - 16:43

Amazon is having a massive sale on Ashley Furniture items like recliners, desks, rugs, and more

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Tue, 06/05/2018 - 16:35

Furniture shopping real talk: All the nice stuff is expensive, all the cheap stuff is horrendous, and if you're shopping online, the added shipping price is always astronomical. You can't narrow down your options to save your life, so you put off the purchase and deal with your current furniture that you hate with a passion.

Okay, that might be dramatic, but still. It's a tough shopping category.

Except for this week, because Amazon is having a huge Father's Day sale on dining chairs, desks, end tables, and more from Ashley Furniture (like, up to 53% off). And Prime customers get free shipping on all of it. Read more...

The $10,000 Apple Watch Edition is obsolete now

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Tue, 06/05/2018 - 16:26

This is going to be a hard lesson for early adopters. 

While Apple's new wearable operating system, watchOS 5, is packed with lots of new features, it's not going to run on first generation Apple Watches.

SEE ALSO: Apple Watch adds podcasts, competitions, and a walkie-talkie app

So, that means the $10,000 Apple Watch Editions are now practically worthless. Or rather, they won't be getting any new features, suggesting that it might be time to upgrade from your pricey investment. Even though the device is already three years old, we're still surprised to hear that Apple is ending support so soon — especially when some of the models costs thousands of dollars. Read more...

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Tue, 06/05/2018 - 15:59

Miss America, America's favorite shitshow of a competition, has decided to make a radical change.

Gretchen Carlson, Former Fox News host and Chairwoman of the Board of Trustees of the Miss America Organization, announced Tuesday on Good Morning America that Miss America would be eliminating the swimsuit portion and dropping the pageantry aspect.

Carlson says the "competition," as they're calling it moving forward, will be less focused on beauty, and more focused on what the contestants actually bring to the table, intellectually.
