Get 25% off the Urbanista Boston earphone range with this exclusive code

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Mon, 12/10/2018 - 16:25

Anyone who runs regularly knows two things for certain. One: Running while listening to music makes you run much faster. Two: Finding a set of comfortable and secure earphones is a difficult task.

In case you didn't notice, those two fundamental running tenets clash with one another. How frustrating it must be to have all that untapped potential, waiting to be unleashed, only to be let down by an uncomfortable set of earphones that keep slipping out. 

It begs the question, is it possible to have wireless sport earphones that maintain a perfect fit? If you were to ask Urbanista, then it would probably point you in the direction of its Boston Night Runner Reflex earphones, normally available for £69.99. Read more...

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Mon, 12/10/2018 - 16:12

Everyone's favorite billionaire is back in the news.

Tesla and SpaceX founder Elon Musk appeared in a 60 Minutes interview this weekend covering a wide range of topics including recent labor complaints at Tesla and his replacement for chairman of the board.

But perhaps no subject was more revealing than Musk's comments on his (often antagonistic) use of Twitter, the social network that cost him the Tesla chairman position as part of a settlement with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.

It was during this part of the 60 Minutes interview that Musk made clear exactly what he thinks of the independent federal agency. Read more...

The era of the 'hole punch' smartphone has begun

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Mon, 12/10/2018 - 16:05

The end of the controversial display notch is nigh... for Android at least.

Samsung kickstarted the death of the cutout with — no surprise — another type of display cutout on its newly announced Galaxy A8s. Instead of the typical notch, the A8s sports an "Infinity-O" display with a "punch hole" cutout for the selfie camera located in the upper left corner.

The A8s marks the first time Samsung's released a phone with a new display without a symmetrical top and bottom bezel and beats Chinese rivals like Huawei from claiming first for yet another mobile innovation.

This 4-year-old ordering from the drive-thru is so cute it will make you scream

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Mon, 12/10/2018 - 15:46

A 4-year-old was captured ordering a meal for themselves at the drive-thru — and it's seriously adorable.

Twitter user xo_dianny shared a video of the toddler ordering a happy meal from Burger King's drive-thru window seamlessly, and if it weren't for their tiny little voice, you'd never know it was actually just a little kid.

Even Burger King is a fan of this precious little orderer, according to the direct messages Dianny shared with the fast food giant on Twitter: Read more...

NASA's Voyager 2 spacecraft is now flying through the stars

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Mon, 12/10/2018 - 15:39

Voyager 2, at 11 billion miles from Earth, has entered the stars. 

Monday morning NASA announced that the legendary exploration spacecraft had left a protective bubble produced by the sun's wind and energy, called the heliosphere, and is now hurtling through interstellar space. 

Voyager 2 is the second spacecraft to ever reach the outer limits of the solar system and enter into the interstellar wilderness. Voyager 2's counterpart, Voyager 1, previously entered the stars in 2012. 

"This is what we've all been waiting for," Suzanne Dodd, NASA's Voyager project manager, said in a statement. "Now we’re looking forward to what we’ll be able to learn from having both probes outside the heliopause.” Read more...

Squirrel jumps on top of UPS driver's head and he's surprisingly chill about it

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Mon, 12/10/2018 - 15:39

People often complain about "annoying squirrels" or squirrels on the attack, but no one ever gives any credit to the many squirrels with social skills.

Take this little squirrel, who went out of its way to greet the UPS driver when the homeowner didn't initially open the door. The driver, to his credit, handled the unusual welcome very well.

It's nice to see even animals are in the holiday spirit!

Trump's 'Smocking Gun' tweet gets mocked by people that know how to spell

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Mon, 12/10/2018 - 15:29

At this point, Donald Trump is essentially the human version of a meme.

Bright and early on Monday morning, the man who was elected leader of an entire country let his 56 million Twitter followers know he has no idea how to spell the word "smoking."

"Democrats can’t find a Smocking Gun tying the Trump campaign to Russia after James Comey’s testimony. No Smocking Gun...No Collusion," Trump tweeted, attempting to quote Fox News.

“Democrats can’t find a Smocking Gun tying the Trump campaign to Russia after James Comey’s testimony. No Smocking Gun...No Collusion.” @FoxNews That’s because there was NO COLLUSION. So now the Dems go to a simple private transaction, wrongly call it a campaign contribution,...

Watch a toy train pull off some pretty slick stunts

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Mon, 12/10/2018 - 14:31

If you've ever wondered what a Fast & Furious franchise film would look like if shot using a child's toy train, you're in luck. 

The crew over at 5MadMovieMakers put together the above video, which showcases the swerves and tricks of an old toy diesel train engine on a wooden track, and the results are stellar. 

According to the video creators, the clip happens on the fictional Island of Sodor, home of Thomas the Tank Engine and pals in both the original book series and the television incarnation. But you've never seen Thomas move like this.

The 10 best films of 2018

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Mon, 12/10/2018 - 14:00

Frankly, it's a fool's errand to determine the 10 best films of any given year. There's too much to see, and too many variables to consider about the ones we have seen. And even once we've settled on an opinion of a given movie, there's no way of knowing how it might evolve in the coming days or weeks or years.

This runner's epic finish line fail has become a beautiful meme

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Mon, 12/10/2018 - 13:05

Not many people can say they've had the glory of celebrating a European Cross Country Championship win in front of a crowd of cheering people.

Not many people can say they've become a meme after face-planting in the mud, either.

Well, Jimmy Gressier can say both. Over the weekend, the runner claimed victory in the men's under-23, rounding off an epic race off with an attempted knee slide through the mud.
