A second woman has come forward accusing Dustin Hoffman of sexual misconduct

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Fri, 12/08/2017 - 22:02

If Dustin Hoffman thought those sexual misconduct allegations were going to blow over quickly, he's learning now just how wrong he was.

Actress Kathryn Rossetter has published a devastating essay in The Hollywood Reporter describing his repeated violation of her when they worked together in the 1980s.

The story arrives one month after Anna Graham Hunter shared her own account of being harassed by Hoffman, and days after John Oliver grilled Hoffman about the accusations during a public screening.

In the early 1980s, Hoffman helped Rossetter land a role opposite him in the Broadway revival Death of a Salesman. (She also co-starred with him in the 1985 TV movie based on the same play.) At first, she says, she saw Hoffman as "my hero."  Read more...

The 2018 iPhones may have bigger batteries, but that's not necessarily good news

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Fri, 12/08/2017 - 21:58

One of the world's leading iPhone analysts, Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI Securities, predicts the 2018 iPhones will pack bigger batteries. 

But hold on — this doesn't necessarily mean next year's iPhones will have longer battery lives. 

Kuo regularly releases investor notes about whatever he thinks Apple is brewing in R&D, and he's grown famous by often being correct. His most recent note, spotted by 9to5Mac, predicts Apple's forthcoming handsets could have 10 percent more battery capacity than the current generation.

SEE ALSO: On the inside, iPhone X is totally different from all other iPhones

Battery life isn't an easy thing to measure, in part because people use phones in different ways. Using Skype, for example, will drain more energy than someone checking their email. But Mashable Senior Tech Correspondent Ray Wong says iPhones generally have between four and five hours of "on-screen" battery life (as opposed to the phone just sitting around in "standby" mode) before the phone needs to be recharged.

Intense video shows horses running for safety as stables catch fire

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Fri, 12/08/2017 - 21:43

Chaos ensued at a horse training center in San Diego County as workers frantically tried to save hundreds of horses by setting them free from their stables.

Eight stables normally containing nearly 500 horses at the San Luis Rey Downs Training Facility in Bonsall suddenly caught fire Thursday afternoon from the nearby Lilac Fire, driven by heavy Santa Ana winds that have wreaked havoc on Southern California this week.

Leo Tapia recorded a dramatic Facebook Live as he and others risked their lives to help release the horses from their stables. After being released, the confused horses can be seen stampeding around the grounds. The hope was to get all of the horses to the location's racetrack, which contains no structures that could burn.  Read more...

Why it's hard to get an iPhone on a budget wireless carrier

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Fri, 12/08/2017 - 20:36

Got a smartphone? Then you must also have a wireless plan, and if you live in the U.S., chances are it's with one of the big four — Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile, or Sprint.

However, there are a bunch of other carriers you may have seen around, carriers with names like Cricket, Jolt, metroPCS, and Virgin. These are MVNOs, or mobile virtual network operators, and they exist by leasing spectrum from the major carriers. They're also often a better deal, thanks to selectively targeting demographics and relying heavily on Wi-Fi to support the network.

It may not always be on the forefront of our minds, but everything on earth (that isn’t, ya know, trees and animals and stuff) has been inspired by the curiosity of humankind. Without certain scientific innovations — some dating back many centuries — our society would be vastly different. 

Innovation is a key component to businesses today as well, especially with the speed in which industries evolve. More often than not, discoveries from the past continue to shape the present as our society adapts to various technological advancements. Read more...

First 'Alita: Battle Angel' trailer answers the question 'What would anime eyes look like IRL?'

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Fri, 12/08/2017 - 20:21

Well, we'll say this for Alita: Battle Angel: We don't think we've seen a heroine look quite like this before.

We are talking, of course, about those enormous peepers. We'd barely raise an eyebrow if this were a cartoon, but she's played by a real actress (Rosa Salazar) with the aid of "realistic" CG animation – and boy, do they look weird.

They look so weird, in fact, that it's almost easy to overlook the rest of her body, which isn't quite human either. Alita is a cyborg rescued from a scrap heap by a scientist (Christoph Waltz, in what appears to be a good guy role for once). Read more...

'Big Little Lies' Season 2 is actually happening, for real this time

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Fri, 12/08/2017 - 20:01

After months of breathless speculation, Mashable has confirmed that Big Little Lies Season 2 has officially been ordered by HBO, with executive producers and stars Reese Witherspoon and Nicole Kidman once again on board.

Because the show was initially intended as a limited series based on Liane Moriarty's bestselling novel, the actors weren't optioned for additional seasons when they signed on for Season 1, but most of the cast is expected to return and negotiations are currently underway, per HBO.

HBO says the second season will "explore the malignancy of lies, the durability of friendships, the fragility of marriage and, of course, the vicious ferocity of sound parenting.  Relationships will fray, loyalties will erode…the potential for emotional and bodily injury shall loom." Read more...
