Apple is developing its own LiDAR sensors, talking to potential sensor suppliers for self-driving cars: report

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Wed, 04/17/2019 - 16:15

We might not see the fruits of Apple's self-driving car project for years, and it's certainly hit some speed bumps along the way — but Apple isn't quite ready to give up on self-driving cars yet.

Now, Reuters reports Apple has held discussions with at least four companies about having them potentially supply advanced LiDAR sensors for autonomous vehicles. The report also says that Apple is still working on its own LiDAR development.

For the uninitiated, LiDAR is short for "light detection and ranging." It's a type of technology commonly associated with self-driving cars because it has the ability to map out the environment around a car with 360 degrees of visibility. It can detect obstacles for the car to avoid, for example. Read more...

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Wed, 04/17/2019 - 16:06

What's better than a polished cover of your favorite single, artfully recorded with only the best equipment and editing? A dad with a trumpet, that's what! 

Even though it's been less than a week since BTS shook the world up by dropping their latest album Map of the Soul: Persona, there are already tons of track covers on YouTube. But nothing can beat this dedicated dad who wanted to support his ARMY daughter's stanning. 

Sadie Neighbor and her sister are huge BTS fans, and have been playing the album on repeat for the past few days. Their dad, who practices the trumpet, walked in on them listening to the track "Make It Right" and jumped right in.  Read more...

Cheap juicer alert: Black and Decker juice extractor is only $40 at Walmart

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Wed, 04/17/2019 - 15:56

Juicers are a great way to get your recommended daily fruit and vegetable intake, but most name-brand juicers will cost you $100 or (much) more. However, we found a juicer from Black and Decker that costs $39.92 at Walmart — that’s not even a discounted price, it’s just that cheap.

The juice extractor is powered by a 400-watt motor that quickly separates juice from pulp to give you fresh juice from your favorite produce. The machine has a fruit and vegetable pusher to help you guide your produce down the juicer’s shoot toward a stainless steel cutter and strainer.

Pulp is separated into a 28-ounce container, though some Walmart reviewers noted that a bit of juice gets collected into the pulp container as well. Read more...

Vacuums aren't always expensive — the Bissell PowerLifter Pet Rewind vacuum is only $99 at Walmart

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Wed, 04/17/2019 - 15:46

I'm not sure who needs to hear this, but using a hand vacuum to clean your entire house does not count as cleaning. Don't even get me started on just not having a vacuum at all.

When the budget is tight, money obviously has to go to more prioritized expenses like bills, groceries, and clothes. But a new vacuum doesn't always mean shelling out $500: The Bissell PowerLifter Pet Rewind Bagless Vacuum is $30 off at Walmart, making it just $99. That's about a quarter of what robot vacuums cost.

Your hatred toward vacuuming may not even lie in the actual chore — frustration is inevitable when your old, crappy vacuum makes more of a mess than helping it. The Bissell PowerLifter's scatter-free technology was made specifically for slippery hard surfaces where debris gets out of reach easily. Read more...

Tucker Carlson says Democrats want to consume Buttigieg like a 'stew ... Yum.'

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Wed, 04/17/2019 - 14:43

Move over, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Tucker Carlson has a new wildly unhealthy obsession with a politician, and that's Mayor Pete Buttigieg.  

On Tucker Carlson Tonight on Tuesday, Carlson accused Democrats of loving the candidate too much, especially after one fan compared Buttigieg to "chicken soup for the soul."

"'Chicken soup for my soul?’ Even by the naughty standards of the news media this is a new level of political commitment," Carlson said. "They don’t just want to vote for this guy. They want to consume him like a hearty stew, every last drop of Buttigieg ... Yum. They're all in."

Hidrate Spark water bottle glows when it's time to take a drink — and it's $10 off on Amazon

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Wed, 04/17/2019 - 14:42

Water is an important substance. It makes up about 60% of our bodies, and 71% of planet Earth in general. Drinking the proper amount of water each day can not only, you know, keep you alive, but it can also help with troubled skin, flushing out toxins, and improving your overall energy. (There are a lot more reasons to drink water — too many to list, in fact.)

The problem is that because of our very busy lives, sometimes we don’t drink as much water as we should. Even worse, some people go whole days without noticing that they haven’t consumed even a drop of it in its pure form.  Read more...

Sophie Turner unleashes her power in thrilling 'Dark Phoenix' trailer

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Wed, 04/17/2019 - 14:31

We know the old adage – absolute power corrupts, and all that. But Fox's Dark Phoenix – the last film currently planned in the X-Men series that began with 2011's First Class – asks what happens when you underestimate that power?

In the final trailer for Dark Phoenix, Jean Grey (Sophie Turner) must learn to tame the massive telekinetic force inside her, or else risk destroying everyone she cares for.

Jean gets a visit from a mysterious expert (Jessica Chastain) who encourages her to explore her powers and be wary of the X-Men. We see her face off with a threatening Magneto (Michael Fassbender), who doesn't stand a chance. Read more...

'Super Smash Bros. Ultimate' update adds stage builder, first DLC character

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Wed, 04/17/2019 - 14:21

In a surprise update, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate for the Nintendo Switch is getting its first DLC fighter and stage, a Stage Builder mode, a new video editing feature, and more.

Check out the full video on the update here:

Persona invades Smash

We knew about Joker from Persona 5 coming to Smash Ultimate, the first character in the game's planned paid DLC releases, but Tuesday night was the first time we got to see what his actual moveset looks like.

Joker has his guns for ranged attacks, a knife for melee attacks, and a couple of magic moves (one of which looks very similar to Ness's PK Fire attack) plus a grappling hook for recovery. The twist with Joker is his Rebellion Gauge that fills up when he takes damage or uses his Rebel's Guard block move. When it's full, Joker can unleash his persona Arsene, which improves a handful of his moves to help him dish more damage. Read more...

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Wed, 04/17/2019 - 13:47

Your choice of speaker says a lot about you. If you go for a powerful option with a lot of bass, then it implies that you like to party. If you go for a portable device, then you probably enjoy travelling.
