We're all second-screening. Here's how you're doing it wrong.

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Mon, 02/18/2019 - 13:00

Second-screening — watching TV while also looking at your phone, tablet or laptop — is probably the  most widely adopted destructive behavior of the decade. We keep hearing that it's bad for us; we keep doing it regardless. It's the smoking of the 2010s. 

Psychologists were sounding the alarm as early as 2012 that this kind of screen-based multitasking seemed to be correlated with depression and anxiety. Did we listen? Did we hell. Back then, according to Nielsen, a mere (!) 40 percent of American adults looked at their phones or tablets every day while parked in front of the tube. By 2017, according to eMarketer, that number had climbed to over 70 percentRead more...

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Mon, 02/18/2019 - 12:25

Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth have been married for nearly two months now. But Cyrus is nowhere near done blessing our feeds with romantic (and hilarious) content from the couple's wedding.

On Twitter, Cyrus shared a photo from the ceremony of herself, her mom Tish Cyrus, and her wedding bouquet.

John Boyega dancing to Vanessa Carlton is instantly cheering to watch

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Mon, 02/18/2019 - 12:23

Sometimes, all you really want is for the DJ to put on an old-school banger.

And if there's one track that truly fits that bill, it's the memorably intense piano chords of Vanessa Carlton's "A Thousand Miles".

SEE ALSO: John Boyega posts very teasing photo from the set of 'Star Wars: Episode IX'

As you can tell from the video below, John Boyega understands this perfectly.

In fairness, what better way to celebrate wrapping up Star Wars Episode IX than by dancing to a bit of Vanessa in the club?

The Terry Crews reference of course refers to this iconic lip sync battle, which may be the greatest lip sync battle performance of all time. Read more...

Flying 1,300 mph on airplanes would be great. But future aviation has other plans.

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Mon, 02/18/2019 - 12:02

In the year 2044, our cities might be energized by fusion power plants, our sleek cars may all run on electricity, and our doctors might regularly employ gene-editing to cure blindness

But our airplanes will probably still fly at the same speeds they did half a century ago: between 550 and 600 mph. 

Supersonic flight — which is to say speeds that exceed the speed of sound (768 mph) and can dramatically slash flight times — died out for civilians in 2003 with the retirement of the narrowly-shaped Concorde planes, which for 27 years cruised at 1,300 mph between the U.S. and Europe. "It failed," Bob van der Linden, the Chairman of the Aeronautics Department of the Smithsonian Institution’s National Air and Space Museum, said in an interview. "It was a technological marvel, but it was too expensive to operate."  Read more...

'Doctor Who' actor Jenna Coleman's embarrassing moment has the internet cringing

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Mon, 02/18/2019 - 11:46

There are some anecdotes that are just so embarrassing, you can't help but cringe for the people involved.

And cringe we most certainly did when we read Jenna Coleman's most embarrassing moment in an interview with the Guardian

The Doctor Who actor recounted the time she was buying a sandwich at Leeds train station when a man spoke to her. 

"The man said to me: 'Do you want to go for a drink?' I said, 'I am so sorry, I’ve got a boyfriend,'" said Coleman.  

Little did she know, however, that the man wasn't actually asking her out. "And he replied, 'No, it’s a meal deal: if you take a sandwich, you can get a drink as well,'" Coleman continued.  Read more...

New Apple rumor is every fan's dream come true

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Mon, 02/18/2019 - 10:55

Apple will launch a ton of new gear this year, a new report claims. And some of it has been on our wish list for a long, long time. 

Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, known for his accurate predictions, has laid out Apple's hardware plans for the year in a huge note (via MacRumors), and they include a fresh size for the MacBook Pro, new iPads, and a huge, lust-worthy new monitor. 

SEE ALSO: Apple's 'AirPods 2' might come in a stealthier black color

According to Kuo, Apple plans to launch a MacBook Pro with a 16-inch to 16.5-inch display with an "all-new" design. He offers no other details, but with that screen size, it's likely to sit atop of the company's laptop lineup (the 17-inch Pro was discontinued in 2012). Apple is often criticized for turning its MacBook Pro into a laptop aimed at the general populace instead of professionals; perhaps this new, larger variant will be the pro's Pro with top specs and (fingers crossed) more ports.

Deals on electric toothbrushes, water flossers, and teeth whitening kits

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Mon, 02/18/2019 - 10:00

George Washington was a lot of things, but having sparkling white teeth and a killer smile was not one of them. In fact, his orthodontic history is almost as famous as his accomplishments.

Having suffered from dental issues for most of his life, he ascended to the presidency with only a single tooth remaining in his mouth. Apparently, he later resorted to lead, gold plates, hippopotamus ivory, and even actual human teeth *gasps* for his dentures. And contrary to popular belief, they were never made of wood.

Of course, he lived during a time when no aesthetic dentists existed, and there were no state-of-the-art tools available to achieve a picture-perfect smile. Now that we're in the 21st century, we're afforded a dizzying array of dental instruments, so you really don't have any excuse to slack off on your oral hygiene. Read more...

The UK government thinks it's time for Facebook to be regulated

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Mon, 02/18/2019 - 09:38

For the last 18 months, UK lawmakers have investigated Facebook, and it's recommended they and other social media giants be regulated.

A damning report released on Monday said after years of self-regulation, these companies were unable to protect users data and privacy, or from disinformation.

SEE ALSO: Facebook might have to pay billions of dollars in fines to FTC for privacy violations

The UK parliament's Digital, Culture, Media and Sport Committee (DCMS) final report recommended an independent regulator be set up (like UK's Ofcom or the FCC), and a compulsory code of ethics for social media companies. Read more...

The Whisperers have proven themselves to be one of the most terrifying threats in The Walking Dead, and learning more about them has only made them scarier.

LG says it's 'too early' for foldable phones

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Sun, 02/17/2019 - 22:22

You may want to just slow your roll for minute with this whole foldable phone thing. 

While electronics giants such as Samsung are reportedly charging ahead to release smartphones that bend as early as this year, at least one major player in the space is taking this opportunity to sit back and see how it all plays out. That would be LG, whose head of mobile Brian Kwon told reporters that the company has decided now is not the right time for LG to release a phone that bends.

John Mulaney is coming back to host 'Saturday Night Live' in March

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Sun, 02/17/2019 - 21:45

John Mulaney is bringing his brand of dry, self-effacing humor back to Saturday Night Live.

The gifted comic, who is himself a former SNL writer, last hosted the show in April 2018. He was and is only the third former writer who wasn't also a cast member to get the hosting gig (after Conan O'Brien and Larry David, so pretty good company).

Now he's set to return on March 2, as was confirmed when he tweeted out the show's typical host announcement image from his own Twitter account. Thomas Rhett will be the night's musical guest.

This guy found a working 30-year-old Apple IIe in his parents' attic, and wow those were simpler times

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Sun, 02/17/2019 - 21:11

There are objects in our lives that will forever be tied to childhood: a favorite toy, for example, or the first chapter book that you read and truly connected with. 

For most of us, these items are forever lost — long ago consigned to the dustbin of Goodwill. Not so for Professor John Pfaff, who on Feb. 16 shared with the world a discovery that blasted him straight to his personal past: a working 30-year-old Apple IIe computer. 

"Oh. My. God," he tweeted. "An Apple IIe. Sat in my parents' attic for years. Decades. And it works."
