The Holy Stone HS230 RC racing drone is down by almost £40 for a limited time

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Tue, 02/26/2019 - 13:05

Drones have had some really bad publicity lately but they are not supposed to be flown near airports. We repeat: Drones do not belong near airports. Please don't fly your drone near any airports, guys.

They are supposed to be used for a variety of other, more fun and less illegal pursuits. They are supposed to be used for taking incredible videos and racing around at high speeds, and that's exactly what the Holy Stone HS230 drone is designed to do.

You can now pick up the Holy Stone HS230 RC racing drone for £92.07, down from the usual list price of £129.99. That's a massive 29% saving and will only be available until midnight on Feb. 26. Read more...

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Tue, 02/26/2019 - 12:53

LEGO is still such a popular product for a number of reasons. It's fun, interactive, and has a degree of longevity that other products can't really compete with. What really sets LEGO apart though is the creativity and imagination that is involved when you play.

LEGO is also a perfect gift for any budding engineer, scientist, or mathematician, as it demands a real focus on technology. The LEGO Boost Creative Toolbox takes this one step further by helping to develop coding and constructions skills.

The LEGO Boost Creative Toolbox is an innovative STEM toy with which you can create interactive, robotic models that can be controlled when you download the free app. There are five models to build: Vernie, the M.T.R.4 (Multi-Tooled Rover 4), the Guitar4000, Frankie the Cat, and the AutoBuilder. The toolbox also includes over 840 LEGO pieces, plus a LEGO Move Hub, Interactive Motor, and a colour and distance sensor. Read more...

How I became part of Ariel’s world for the 30th anniversary of ‘Little Mermaid’

Mermaid lessons Reconciling my love for everyone’s problematic fav, Ariel

By Jess Joho

I didn’t really fit into the world I was born into. Everything that came so naturally to my older sisters seemed impossible for me, the quiet one who always came across as a fish out of water.

Most of girlhood was spent wishing to be part of another world — a world where my body felt less awkward, where what I liked wasn’t considered weird, where people weren’t so overwhelming, where I didn’t always say and do the wrong thing, where adventures made me brave. Read more...

All the hilarious things that happened during Jimmy Fallon's 5th anniversary special

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Tue, 02/26/2019 - 11:14

Jimmy Fallon just celebrated five years of hosting The Tonight Show with an episode like no other. 

The anniversary special, featuring celebrity guests Tina Fey, Ben Stiller, and Australian TV personality Robert Irwin – all being really, really mean to Fallon – was more like an darkly funny episode of sitcom than the regular upbeat talk show. Per Esquire, the whole episode was in fact an homage to the '90s sitcom The Larry Sanders Show. 

SEE ALSO: The 2019 Oscars proved to be a night of history-making milestones

The Larry Sanders Show, starring comedian Garry Shandling, centred around the behind-the-scenes operations of a talk show, and was in fact inspired by The Late Show in the years when Johnny Carson hosted the talk show Read more...

TCL's foldable phone concept bends in a completely different way

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Tue, 02/26/2019 - 10:50

Huawei's foldable Mate X is without a doubt the best gadget announced at Mobile World Congress 2019 and it's easy to understand why.

But while every tech company is now rushing to release their own foldable device this year to compete with the Mate X and Samsung's Galaxy Fold, TCL, which you may know for its excellent TVs sold at bargain prices, is taking a wait-and-see approach.

Rather than spring a half-baked foldable device on consumers, the company's spending more time exploring new form factors a flexible display could enable, like a phone that bends in half like a stack of cash.

HTC Exodus 1: Hands-on with the blockchain phone

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Tue, 02/26/2019 - 10:22

Does the world really need a blockchain phone? HTC thinks the answer is yes, and it's got hardware to back it up.

I've spent a few days with the HTC Exodus 1, and while I do think that phones need to get friendlier with the blockchain, I'm not sure that the Exodus 1 distinguishes itself enough to become *the* blockchain phone. 

SEE ALSO: Best Samsung Galaxy pre-order deals: S10, S10+, and S10e

The HTC Exodus 1 is a fairly powerful device, with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chip, 6GB of RAM, 128GB of storage, a 16/12-megapixel rear camera and an 8/8-megapixel dual selfie camera, as well as a 3,500mAh battery. Not quite up to par with the best phones right now, but not that far off either.  Read more...

Guillermo sneaking tequila onto the Oscars red carpet never fails to be hilarious

You can always rely on Guillermo to make things interesting.

Jimmy Kimmel's cheerful on-the-ground reporter paid another visit to the Oscars this year, where he chatted with various stars on the red carpet.

And after enlisting their help in encouraging Kimmel to give him a pay rise, he brought out an old favourite: carefully concealed tequila.

This year it was smuggled in a microphone and a shiny handbag. Outstanding work. Read more...

Snag this set of handmade Japanese steel knives for less than $50

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Tue, 02/26/2019 - 10:00

There is more than one way to skin a cat, but there's only a single way to fashion a palatable dish — and that's by using a quality knife.

Okay, that's probably the worst and most grotesque euphemism to use when talking about knives, but bear with us. What we're really getting at is that knife selection is crucial because it ultimately affects the way you slice, chop, filet, and dice food. The blades should be razor sharp for ultimate precision, while still remaining lightweight. Remember: your kitchen knife is essentially the extension of your arm, so you have to pick what feels right.

This Damasukasu 3-Piece Handmade Japanese Chef Knife Set is currently on sale and good be a good option. Read more...

'True Detective' Season 3 wants you to let the mystery be

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Tue, 02/26/2019 - 10:00

There are a lot of mysteries on HBO these days. Even when a show isn’t about getting to the bottom of crimes or catching murderers, the interactive element of getting an audience to “solve” what’s happening onscreen is a vital part of the entertainment landscape. Look at Westworld, a show that has ten times more mystery than it actually has plot, or Game of Thrones and its hundreds of fan theories, or Sharp Objects and its laundry list of dead little girls. 

SEE ALSO: 'True Detective Season 3' review: Thank god, it's really good again

At the center of these is True Detective, a show that is outwardly about mystery but in its three seasons has used the framework of crime to explore the interiority of its characters and the effects that One Big Case had on their lives. Most of the characters in previous seasons are left worse off by the time their story is done, which tracks as far as they’ve been dealt awful hands and witnessed terrible things. But True Detective Season 3 did something different. It gave its characters, all of them that are still alive, a happy ending.  Read more...

Seth Meyers doesn't think much of Trump's criticism of Spike Lee's Oscars speech

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Tue, 02/26/2019 - 04:51

There was no direct mention of Trump at the Oscars, except for Spike Lee's hint at choosing "love versus hate" at the 2020 presidential elections. 

That still prompted a response from the president, and subsequently from Seth Meyers during Late Night on Monday night. 

"I love that he didn't mention Trump by name, but Trump heard 'hate,' and assumed it was about him," Meyers joked. "When Trump hears 'hate,' it's like his Bat-Signal."

The late show host also dug into Trump's reported strategy to cause chaos within the Democrats and the party's quickly rising number of presidential candidates, which includes Bernie Sanders and Kirsten Gillibrand. Read more...

Elon Musk tweets dumb meme as SEC asks judge to hold him in contempt

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Tue, 02/26/2019 - 00:01

Last week, Tesla CEO Elon Musk couldn't contain himself — he had to tweet about his electric car company.

The problem? After he reached a settlement with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission last year over his now infamous "funding secured" tweet, he isn't supposed to tweet about things that could impact markets and his publicly traded company without approval from Tesla. 

Tesla made 0 cars in 2011, but will make around 500k in 2019

'Derry Girls' portrayal of Northern Irish women is a breath of fresh air

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Tue, 02/26/2019 - 00:01

An inaccurate — and extremely irritating — TV and film stereotype is doing a disservice to the women of Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland. 

Often, in TV and films, female characters from the island of Ireland are portrayed as victims. But, Derry Girls — which returns to screens on March 5 — is turning that tired-out trope on its head. 

SEE ALSO: 'Derry Girls' helped me understand my parents' experience growing up during The Troubles

The TV show — the most-watched series in Northern Ireland since records began — tells the stories of Erin, Orla, Clare, and Michelle — four teenage girls at a convent school in Derry, Northern Ireland. It's set in the '90s during the Troubles — the three-decade sectarian conflict between nationalists and unionists.  Read more...
