Save $200 on the 17-inch LG gram laptop, the lightest device of its size

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Sat, 06/15/2019 - 09:00

TL;DR: The slim, 17-inch LG gram laptop is on sale in the PCMag Shop for just $1,499. (That's $200 less than what you'd pay on Amazon or the LG website.)

Lightweight laptops are excellent for on-the-go productivity, but as our friends at PCMag have mentioned, it's common for manufacturers to sacrifice display size for portability. 

Not with the LG gram 17Z990. Its sleek frame and display are ample at 15 and 17 inches wide, respectively, but it weighs a mere 2.95 pounds, making it the lightest laptop of its size (and even lighter than some smaller laptops). 

Its secret? A special metal alloy design featuring a combination of nanocarbon and magnesium gives it the look and feel of a metal laptop, minus the bulk — and at a fraction of the price, provided you buy yours from the PCMag Shop. Read more...

10 fitness gadgets for living room workouts

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Sat, 06/15/2019 - 09:00

Every body is a swimsuit body. Full stop.

Working out should make you feel strong and capable — don't believe any of that bullshit about "swimsuit season."

That said, if you're looking to start a workout routine now that the weather is nicer, or have been trying to lose weight, then go for it. Summer can be the busiest time of the year, though and hitting the gym every day isn't always feasible. Plus, a gym membership can quickly eat up your vacation spending money — and then what's the point of it all? If you're looking for a more affordable, less time-consuming way to work out, we've got 10 deals to help you do just that without ever leaving your home. (Peep our top picks for the best at-home elliptical machines and treadmills too.) Read more...

Google’s John Mueller Predicts Dynamic Rendering Won’t Be Needed in a Few Years via @MattGSouthern

Search Engine Journal - Sat, 06/15/2019 - 00:45

Google’s John Mueller predicts that dynamic rendering will only be a temporary workaround for helping web crawlers process JavaScript. Eventually, all web crawlers will be able to process JavaScript, Mueller believes. So in a few years’ time relying on dynamic rendering may not be necessary. Mueller made this prediction during a recent Google Webmaster Central hangout when a site owner asked if there’s any reason why they shouldn’t use dynamic rendering. Here is the question that was submitted: “We’re thinking of the option to start only serving server-side rendering for bots on some of our pages. Is this an accepted […]

Tesla wants to make the car ‘the most fun possible’

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Fri, 06/14/2019 - 23:45

Tesla owners, prepare to be entertained. 

Elon Musk made an appearance at the Electronic Entertainment Expo, known as E3, in Los Angeles Thursday and said in a conversation with game designer Todd Howard and video game journalist Geoff Keighley that entertainment options are expanding in Tesla vehicles.

"What can we do to make the car the most fun possible?” Musk mused on stage.

First up is the game Cuphead, which Tesla announced earlier this month as an addition to the gaming options already in the Tesla in-car screen. Then Bethesda Game Studios is working with Tesla to bring Fallout Shelter to the gaming selection. Read more...

People are changing their profile pictures to blue to show solidarity with Sudan

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Fri, 06/14/2019 - 20:59

As news of the crisis in Sudan spreads, the color blue has become a symbol of solidarity with protestors in the country on social media.

People are changing their profile pictures to blue in an attempt at raising awareness of the extreme violence inflicted upon civilians by the military rulers. An internet blackout — imposed in an attempt to stop protests — has made spreading information difficult. 

The color blue is in remembrance of Mohamed Hashim Mattar, a young man who was killed during the June 3 crackdown on peaceful demonstrations by the Sudanese Military. The blue trend was brought to the United States with a viral Instagram post from Remaz Mahgoub Khalaleyal, who asked her American followers Tuesday to reach out to their representatives and condemn the violence. She urged Instagram users to use the color as their profile photos.  Read more...

'Framing John DeLorean' documentary makes Musk’s Tesla all the more impressive

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Fri, 06/14/2019 - 20:59

"It's got cocaine, hot chicks, sports cars, bombed-out buildings, Margaret Thatcher, Ronald Reagan, FBI agents, and hard-core drug dealers."

That's how the son of former General Motors exec John DeLorean — who created his own car company, DeLorean Motor Company, or DMC — describes the story of his father's downfall and the end of his car dreams in the new documentary Framing John DeLorean

That dramatic description could easily be adjusted to describe Elon Musk and his electric car company Tesla, what with his high-profile girlfriends like Amber Heard and Grimes, that pot-smoking incident on the Joe Rogan podcast, his bizarre accusations of drug use, his fraught relationship with federal SEC officials, and, of course, plenty of cars. But comparisons to DMC also serve as a boost to Tesla's perception and reputation. Read more...

Byton’s massive 48-inch dashboard screen will also be used in its electric SUV

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Fri, 06/14/2019 - 20:26

Byton was the darling of CES last year, showing off its never-ending dashboard screen and other touchscreens on practically every surface of the Chinese's company first all-electric car, the M-Byte. Now we know that nearly all designs from the prototype car will actually be made, including that massive 48-inch end-to-end screen up front.

This week Byton showed an interior glimpse into the final design of the cars as the first electric SUVs are made in China. The $45,000-starting-price car will make it to the U.S. after China by the end of 2020. The car will will feature the 48-inch gesture-controlled screen with Alexa (and Baidu) capabilities.  Read more...

Walmart has the Playstation Classic on sale for just $30 — that's 70% off

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Fri, 06/14/2019 - 19:40

TL;DR: The retro-inspired Playstation Classic normally retails for $99.99, but Walmart's got it on sale for just $29.99 — a 70% discount.

The Playstation 5 sounds cool and all — really, really cool, actually — but you can't beat the nostalgia factor of an original Playstation console. You know the one: It looked like a gray brick, had a meager 640x480 resolution, and left you with an enduring love for Crash Bandicoot. (Let's not talk about that lame redesign, though.)

Sony discontinued that console back in 2006, leaving OG Playstation fans doomed to peruse ebay in the hopes of finding a used one for sale — that is, until it released a replica version called the Playstation Classic on the 24th anniversary of its 1996 debut.  Read more...
