Mark Warner held a press conference on Oct. 4 to provide updates on their investigation on Russia's interference. Twitter agreed shortly thereafter.  Read more...

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Thu, 10/19/2017 - 14:22

The Last Jedi brings Laura Dern into the Star Wars universe – but you wouldn't know it from the trailers, which have largely overlooked her character.

The only way to be sure Harvey Weinstein isn't getting your money

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Thu, 10/19/2017 - 14:18

There's only one way to be 100% certain you're not putting money in the pocket of Harvey Weinstein: Don't watch his movies.

This isn't a call for a boycott — separating art from artist is an individual's choice — but if you're inclined to avoid paying this man, you must steer clear of movies and TV shows produced by The Weinstein Co., its subsidiary Dimension Films, and anything he touched while at his old company Miramax before he left in 2005.

SEE ALSO: Here are all the women who have accused Harvey Weinstein of sexual abuse so far

That means future movies (The Current War), recent releases (Tulip Fever, Lion, Carol) and — though it pains me to say it — a slew of Miramax classics, too (Pulp Fiction, the Scream movies, Good Will Hunting ... too many to name here). Read more...

Barack Obama's letters to a college girlfriend are finally seeing the light of day

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Thu, 10/19/2017 - 14:13

The Barack Obama that we know is a smooth politician and world leader—but in case you had any doubt, we now have proof that the former president was just as poetic in college as he is today. 

Letters Obama wrote to his college girlfriend, Alexandra McNear, have been made public to researchers at Emory University's Stuart A. Rose Manuscript, Archives and Rare Book Library in Atlanta on Thursday.

Moto X4 review: Motorola's 'basic' phone is a good value for $400

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Thu, 10/19/2017 - 13:00

I was ready to give the Moto X4 a middling to negative review when a colleague asked me about phone recommendations, specifically non-iPhones. Since the X4 was in my hand, I showed it to her. After showing her everything I liked and didn't like, I surprised myself when I actually ended up recommending it. 

The reason I came around is really for one reason: the price. The Moto X4 (or moto x⁴, if you want to be all brand-y about it) costs just $400 — that's $250 less than the Google Pixel 2 and $300 less than the iPhone 8. And if you buy through Amazon Prime, the Moto X4 costs just $330, which is getting close to the Moto G, Motorola's budget line. Read more...

Dear Mr. Bezos: Pick Mashable's proposal for Amazon's new headquarters

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Thu, 10/19/2017 - 13:00

Dear Mr. Jeff Bezos,

We, the humble city of Gatestown in collaboration with Mashable, are pleased to submit our application to become the home to Amazon's second headquarters. 

We want this thing. We need this thing. Our city hasn't had any good news since we took on the name of Gatestown in an attempt to woo Microsoft for a Zune factory. That did not turn out well. 

Now, we're all in on Bezosville. We're ready to remake our fair town in the image of all things Amazon. We may not be the biggest or have the best people. We can't offer you $7 billion in tax incentives or really any of the stuff you've said you need. But there's something we can offer: the platonic ideal of what an Amazon city could be.  Read more...

Lenovo's 25th anniversary ThinkPad is a huge throwback to 1992

"I still make choices every day as a 41-year-old actress that I think of as self-protecting and wise," Bialik wrote. "I have decided that my sexual self is best reserved for private situations with those I am most intimate with. I dress modestly. I don’t act flirtatiously with men as a policy." Read more...
