Watch a man feed a hummingbird right out of his hand

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Thu, 04/18/2019 - 17:37

There is nothing more tender than feeding a bird directly from your own hand.

Every once in a while, nature blesses you with the opportunity. Take a look at this man, Brent, who approached a hungry hummingbird last month in a blooming backyard in San Jose, California, and fed it directly from his hand.

This is peak kindness, everyone. The closing smile is the best part. Read more...

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Thu, 04/18/2019 - 16:24

The air is getting warmer and the daylight is sticking around longer. We can taste the sweet signs of summer quickly approaching. You might be ready to get outside and capture the newly bloomed trees on a drone or watch nature in a more analog way through binoculars. No matter your summer hobby, your home could probably use a couple of upgrades for the season.

Right now Walmart is offering up to 35% off outdoor items such as grills, patio furniture, pools, home improvement tools, and more.

Here's a sample of what's included in the sale:

Weber Spirit II E-310 propane gas grill — Save $50

Weber is one of the top names in grilling, so when you can score a deal, we suggest you jump on it. This model has a total cooking area of 529 square inches and three stainless steel burners — it's big enough to cook an entire meal on its porcelain-enameled cast-iron cooking grates. The grill also has two side tables, one of which folds down, and six hooks for cooking tools. The Weber Spirit II E-310 is listed for $499, but during this sale you can get the grill for $449.

Get a 3-month Sling TV subscription for $15 per month — that's the price of just one month of DirecTV

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Thu, 04/18/2019 - 16:15

Cable who? Streaming services are the move to get live channels for cheap, but there's one problem: When you're on a budget, $45/month still isn't very reasonable.

Sling TV is here to say you're not doomed to rewatch whatever's on Netflix for the rest of your life. Usually $20/month, it's one of the best streaming services out there — and now it's even cheaper. For a limited time, Sling is offering 40% off three-month subscriptions, making each month just $15. That's three months of Sling for the price of a single month of FuboTV or Hulu with Live TV.

(This deal was around at the beginning of March, and now it's back. Take advantage this time.) Read more...

The Mueller report is here and so are the 'Harm to Ongoing Matter' memes

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Thu, 04/18/2019 - 15:54

Robert Mueller's highly anticipated report is finally public, but it's littered with redactions from Attorney General William Barr that are unexpectedly labeled, "Harm to Ongoing Matter."

People anticipated there could be some heavy redactions, but after the lengthy report was published, it became apparent that dozens of lines, and even entire pages, were blacked out with the words "Harm to Ongoing Matter" or HOM for short.

After scrolling through the report and seeing the phrase used over and over again, people couldn't resist calling out the overuse, and Twitter turned into a trove of "HOM" jokes. Read more...

WhatsApp has become a haven for Nazi propaganda in Germany: report

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Thu, 04/18/2019 - 15:33

Public displays of Nazi imagery are illegal in Germany; yet, that hasn’t stopped far-right  ideologists from spreading swastikas and other Nazi propaganda on WhatsApp.

A new report from BuzzFeed News shows that WhatsApp users in Germany are successfully spreading Nazi imagery on the app. Even worse, WhatsApp, which is owned by Facebook, isn’t taking any action to stop it.

According to the report, BuzzFeed looked at nearly a dozen WhatsApp groups, some with names such as "Ku Klux Klan International,” and found Nazi slogans, antisemitic imagery, and propaganda “glorifying” Adolf Hitler. The groups also contained violent rhetoric aimed at immigrants and leftists.  Read more...

Apple needs Qualcomm to make a 5G iPhone anytime soon, experts say

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Thu, 04/18/2019 - 14:52

Years of squabbling between two giant tech companies came to an end on Tuesday, as Apple and Qualcomm settled their legal disputes globally. This is likely a good thing for consumers because it means Apple may now be able to get a 5G iPhone out the door in a somewhat timely manner.

According to a report from Bloomberg, working with Qualcomm was probably the only way for Apple to embrace the new wireless high-speed standard in the near future.

SEE ALSO: Samsung Galaxy S10 5G could hit stores next month

Put simply, Qualcomm has resources that Apple and any other company Apple could hire to make 5G modems do not. Apple had intended to work with Intel on making a 5G iPhone until the legal settlement, but even then, Intel seemingly couldn't compete with Qualcomm's expertise and resources in the 5G space.

People are having a blast with 'Super Smash Bros. Ultimate's stage builder

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Thu, 04/18/2019 - 14:40

People are going wild with the new stage builder in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, which was added to the game in the free version 3.0.0 update Wednesday.

Smash players immediately jumped into the stage builder and have been sharing their custom creations online, some of them being clever and impressively detailed battle arenas, others being more comical than practical. And, of course, it was only a matter of time before people started making lewd stages.

Perhaps the most clever/goofy/weird stage that's come out of it so far is a stage called "spicy meatball," which contains a gigantic Mario that swallows players and poops them out with such force that they die. Read more...

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Thu, 04/18/2019 - 14:25

If you're a Jeopardy! fan you've no doubt heard the name James Holzhauer, who cleaned house by earning $131,127 in a single game on Wednesday.

Trump’s 'Game of Thrones' response to the Mueller report is his worst meme yet

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Thu, 04/18/2019 - 14:24

As the world waits for the release of the Mueller report, Donald Trump has tweeted perhaps his most nonsensical meme yet.

Shortly after Attorney General William Barr's press conference, but before the public has even had a chance to read the redacted report, President Trump tweeted another Game of Thrones meme of himself.

"No collusion. No obstruction. For the haters and the radical left Democrats — GAME OVER," the image of him walking into a bunch of fog, read.

— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) April 18, 2019

Trump's past tweets, and the classic Game of Thrones font he used seem to suggest this is a reference to the popular HBO show. But aside from being a wildly unprofessional tweet from a president, the meme makes absolutely no sense. Read more...
