'Game of Thrones' showrunners explain what really happened to Ser Pounce

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Mon, 02/11/2019 - 17:31

We all knew Game of Thrones showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss were monsters. But hey, it turns out that they're actually heartless monsters.

Remember Ser Pounce? The cute, little "proper fellow" of a Game of Thrones kitty that popped up in Season 4 to kill the mood as Margaery Tyrell tried to bond with Tommen Lanni— ahem, Baratheon?

Yeah, well, the cat's dead.

SEE ALSO: Kit Harington kept that Jon Snow crypt statue from the trailer, obviously

Cersei apparently killed him in a horrible moment that was too much for even HBO. Benioff confirmed as much in a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly (though we have our doubts about how serious he was). Read more...

Russia plans to disconnect from the internet

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Mon, 02/11/2019 - 17:24

While Russia has deftly used the internet to advance its own interests, it is apparently concerned about other countries deploying its own tactics, so it is preparing to "disconnect" from the internet, ZDNet reports.

Average Russians would not lose internet access; the plan would instead change how internet traffic is handled on the back-end.

The move has been in the works for years, and is intended to seal Russia off from incoming cyber attacks. ISPs in the region are now preparing to test a system that would re-route web traffic in Russia to exchange points controlled by Russia's telecom agency, Roskomnazor, ZDNet says. Read more...

Report: AirPods 2 with grip coating to cost $200

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Mon, 02/11/2019 - 17:17

A new generation of AirPods has been hinted at for quite a while now, but a fresh rumor suggests we'll be getting a new version of the wireless earbuds this year, and they'll be much easier to hold on to.

The iOS 12.2 Beta already let slip that second-generation AirPods are set to arrive soon complete with built-in Siri functionality. This latest rumor comes via MySmartPrice as reported by MacRumors.

It is thought that Apple is set to offer a pair of AirPods $144.90 at Amazon complete with improved bass response without adjusting the exterior shape or dimensions in any way. Apple is also going to fix one of the biggest problems with the AirPods: the fact it was so easy to drop and lose them. The new version are covered in a grip coating that's being described as similar to the coating on the back of Google's Pixel 3 $799.00 at Google smartphone. Read more...

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Mon, 02/11/2019 - 17:09

BEST DEALS ON SOUNDBARS THIS WEEK 

As great as TVs are today, the audio leaves a lot to be desired. Most speakers are built into the back or bottom of a flatscreen TV, which aren't ideal locations for quality audio.

That's why you need to invest in a soundbar. Read more...

Prep food away from home with the Wi-Fi-enabled Instant Pot, which is $29 off at Amazon today

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Mon, 02/11/2019 - 16:24

Life is just easier with an Instant Pot. The world-changing device can turn a recipe's two-hour cooking time into 20 minutes, help lower your energy bill, and clear overflowing cabinets by replacing multiple appliances.

The only way the Instant Pot could possibly make things even easier would be if you could control it when you're not even home.

Psh, like they didn't think of that. The Smart 7-in-1 Instant Pot with Wi-Fi is a thing, and it's $30 off at Amazon today.

SEE ALSO: Why Instant Pots are the best: We explore the Lux, Duo, Ultra, Max, and more

Nearly identical to the Instant Pot DUO Plus, this model is a pressure cooker, slow cooker, rice cooker, steamer, warmer, sauté pan, and yogurt maker — and not only are you getting seven functions in one little device, but you'll only be using about 30% of the energy that a stove uses.

Honor View 20 review: More than just a futuristic hole-punch display

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Mon, 02/11/2019 - 16:09

I experienced a serious case of déjà vu while testing the Honor View 20 over the last month.

Here's an Android phone that none of my friends and family have ever heard of, has fast and responsive performance, a long-lasting battery, and costs hundreds less than the best Android phones such as Samsung's Galaxy Note 9 and Google's Pixel 3.

And (yes, there's more) the View 20 comes with a refreshingly original glass back design that glimmers at different angles and is one of the first phones with a "hole-punch" display instead of a screen with a notch. Read more...

Aladdin has a filthy side (and nipples!) in this parody trailer

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Mon, 02/11/2019 - 15:59

Are you looking for some wholesome, family-friendly fun? This is decidedly not that.

YouTuber Tommy Stanfield recently shared a parody trailer of the beloved movie Aladdin, which reanimates the titular character into a crass, beer-chugging, face-tattooed bro. The new additions range from pretty tame (finally giving Aladdin real nipples!), to downright gross (lots of fart noises and flies buzzing). But all of it still uncomfortably well-animated. 

While we're not sure if Walt would approve, it sure seems like the internet does.  Read more...

Apple sticking with Lightning over USB-C on next iPhone: report

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Mon, 02/11/2019 - 15:54

The next generation of iPhones may come equipped with all sorts of new cutting-edge features, but it will still be lagging behind the rest of the mobile world in one major aspect, according to a new report.

Apple will once again pass on USB-C port and instead equip the 2019 iPhone model with a Lightning port, according to Japanese tech site Macotakara. The report, which was first spotted by 9to5Mac, also states that the next iPhone will continue to be bundled with a USB-A charger. 

SEE ALSO: Apple's Smart Battery Case is the best way to power your iPhone for days

The reason this comes as a surprise to many is because the iPhone remains one of the last holdouts in the smartphone world, as most modern phones (especially Android devices) have embraced the new USB-C port for charging and data transfer.  Read more...

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Mon, 02/11/2019 - 15:53

Well, we certainly never had a friend like this!

Are you one of the people "shook" over how very blue Will Smith is as the Genie in the new Aladdin live-action remake? Do you wish the Genie didn't look so... weird? Sure it's a little off-putting, but there's still some time between now and May 24 (when the film is released) for Disney to tone it down. 

In the meantime, if you're feeling a little blue yourself this Monday, we've found the best deals from Amazon, Walmart, Best Buy, and Macy's that will hopefully cheer you up. There are deals on laptops and accessories from Apple, Microsoft, HP, and more, as well as discounts on home products from Dyson, Instant Pot, and Cuisinart.

Man finds his dishwasher overflowing with suds, so he made this catchy song

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Mon, 02/11/2019 - 15:50

When you think of autotune, you generally think of T-Pain and awkward 8th grade dances. Well, let's cleanse your mind.

When @AliGriffin's brother Liam came home to a dishwasher overflowing with soap, he freaked out. Of course the rational thing to do would be to make an autotune song out of the situation using the app Voloco

SEE ALSO: This very good prankster edited her cousin's video for Spanish class into oblivion

Liam sang his sorrows as he expressed that there were no paper towels for him to clean the mess up, and then aptly described the situation as looking like an "ice cream dispenser." Read more...

Fox News host admits on air that he hasn't washed his hands in 10 years

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Mon, 02/11/2019 - 15:29

A good amount of people abandon their New Year's resolutions by February, but Fox News' Pete Hegseth? He's just getting started.

On Sunday morning's episode of Fox & Friends, Hegseth, for some reason, came *clean* about his resolution on air, and the result was both unexpected and absolutely disgusting.

"My 2019 resolution is to say things on-air that I say off-air. I don't think I've washed my hands for 10 years," Hegseth admitted, without being asked.

Fox News’ @PeteHegseth admits, unprompted, that he hasn’t washed his hands in 10 years.
