Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Fri, 03/29/2019 - 20:24

Building your own PC rig is an extremely fun and rewarding process, but it can also be incredibly stressful on account of all the separate parts that need to go into it. You'll need a PC of course.

'Law & Order: SVU' renewed for a record-breaking 21st season

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Fri, 03/29/2019 - 20:11

New Yorkers, you have at least one more year of wondering when SVU will film on your block.

NBC has renewed Mariska Hargitay-led Law and Order: SVU for a 21st season, making it the longest-running live-action series in the history of television. 

In terms of longevity, this renewal puts SVU ahead of both its Dick Wolf predecessor Law & Order and the Western drama Gunsmoke, each of which ran for 20 seasons.

We have told important stories for 20 years, and we will continue to tell them.” Read more...

More video games should let you fight and kill horses, like 'Sekiro'

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Fri, 03/29/2019 - 19:55

Horses are an underrated enemy, both in video games and in real life, and we should all get the chance to slay them more often.

In Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, the first big boss you fight is a guy named Gyoubu Masataka Oniwa. Gyoubu has a big spear and an even bigger horse, and after trying and failing a handful of times to kill Gyoubu, I realized I wasn't really fighting the man, I was actually fighting the horse.

And boy did I enjoy hitting that horse with my sword.

Contrary to popular belief, horses are not nice. I say this as a person with absolutely no expertise on horses or animals in general. I do know that they are large, they have scary teeth, they can kill humans with a single kick, and I've been afraid of them for almost my entire life. Read more...

Watch Beyoncé and Jay-Z's powerful speech at the GLAAD Media Awards

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Fri, 03/29/2019 - 18:39

America's foremost power couple Beyoncé and Jay-Z were presented with the Vanguard Award at Thursday night's GLAAD Media Awards, where they delivered a powerful joint speech.

When GLAAD announced the award earlier this month, there was some confusion about why the two were being honored despite not being members of the LGBTQ community. However, the Vanguard Award is generally given to a public figure who does not necessarily identify as LGBTQ, but who has, according to GLAAD, "made a big difference in promoting equality and acceptance of LGBTQ people." (In 2018, for example, Britney Spears was honored.)  Read more...

There's a self-destructing asteroid zooming through the solar system

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Fri, 03/29/2019 - 17:27

Asteroid Gault is self-destructing.

Images shot by the Hubble Space Telescope show the space rock — some 2.5 to 5.5 miles wide — has left telltale streaks of debris as it hurtles through our solar system. It's gradually breaking apart. 

Why? Sunlight heats up the surface of asteroids, and when enough heat radiates off the rocky body's surface, this can propel the asteroid and force it to spin. With enough motion, shifting rubble and landslides on the massive rock can tumble into space. Basically, the asteroid is shedding. 

Today, telescopes on Earth and in space (like the 29-year-old Hubble) can combine their observations to detect these rarely-seen events. Read more...

100% pure UPS guy takes selfies with all the neighborhood dogs

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Fri, 03/29/2019 - 16:40

Dogs and delivery drivers have a historically conflictual relationship. There are some package delivery drivers who are nevertheless able to build meaningful relationships with their furry friends.

Jason Hardesty, @jhardesty on Instagram, is one of them.

SEE ALSO: Twitter's new dark mode is actually black and it's glorious

Hardesty is a UPS driver in New Orleans, Louisiana. He describes himself as a "very easily entertained UPS driver," which makes sense — Hardesty loves taking selfies of himself with all the neighborhood dogs. 

"There's a lot of dogs on my route. I came across a really cute one and took a picture with him," Hardesty told Mashable over DM. "I posted it and got a lot of good feedback and realized people wanted more of that so I started taking pics of the dogs I came across." Read more...

Amazon Prime members in the UK can get 12 months of Nintendo Switch Online for free

The benefits of being an Amazon Prime member are many. You get access to over two million songs without any adverts, exclusive deals, and Prime Originals, movies, and TV shows. You also get fast and free delivery.

Amazon Prime members also get the benefits of the Twitch Prime package, but what you actually receive keeps changing. For example, Amazon removed ad-free streams towards the end of last year, out of the blue. It hasn't been completely clear what will come next, but now we know.

The latest change will be music to the ears of gamers everywhere. Amazon has partnered up with Nintendo, and up until Sept. 24, Amazon Prime members can get 12 months of Nintendo Switch Online for free via the Twitch Prime package. Read more...

Someone finally figured out why Garfield phones have been washing up on a beach for over 30 years

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Fri, 03/29/2019 - 16:23

One of the oddest mysteries we've heard in a while has been solved after a group has uncovered why parts of novelty Garfield phones have been washing up on France's Brittany coast for the past 30-plus years.

For years, random pieces, including headsets and Garfield faces have been found along this stretch of beach. French news outlet FranceInfo reports that around 200 Garfield phone-related pieces were found in 2018 alone.

Instagram may finally let users rewind and fast forward through videos

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Fri, 03/29/2019 - 16:12

Instagram users, rejoice! One of the most basic multimedia features may soon be coming to the platform.

The Facebook-owned photo sharing social network is currently testing a seek bar on the app which would allow users to scroll backwards or forwards through a video. 

If a user is one of the lucky select few picked to test out the feature, all they have to do is press down on an Instagram video and slide their finger to the left or the right. A seek bar will appear embedded at the top of the video, complete with a pop-up timecode.

AirPods 2 teardown: Same old battery, impossible to repair

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Fri, 03/29/2019 - 16:07

Apple's second-generation AirPods are out, and they're pretty great

If you pry them open and look inside, though, you won't find too many big changes compared to the original AirPods which came out in 2016. According to iFixit, which has posted its teardown of the AirPods 2 Friday, Apple's new buds are still extremely hard to repair. 

SEE ALSO: Apple AirPods 2 review: Still the best wireless earbuds you can buy

It's hardly surprising: After all, not many of us expect something as tiny as the AirPods to be easily repairable. But iFixit claims the AirPods, and their battery-charging case, are near-impossible to open — if you try it, you'll likely break half the parts, so don't try it.  Read more...
