'God of War' is the game I've been waiting for my whole life

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Fri, 04/20/2018 - 13:13

There is a moment early in God of War when Kratos and his son Atreus are hunting a boar in the woods near their house. Atreus shoots it with an arrow which sets off a chain of events that leads to the pair meeting the witch of the woods, who leads them to her home.

The cold, hard, wintry woods open up into a forest filled with bright colors, sunshine, and the witch's home: a wooden structure attached to the stomach of a giant turtle.

At the sight of that turtle, Kratos' Leviathan Axe strung up on his back, the green ground covered  in colorful, fallen leaves, I had the thought that this game was the game I've been waiting my whole life for, the game that I had had wanted to play since my childhood but didn't know I was waiting for.  Read more...

It's time to stop 'celebrating' 420

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Fri, 04/20/2018 - 10:12

Today is April 20, affectionately known by many as 420. It's the unofficial day for celebrating all things weed. But it's 2018, and it's time to take a step back from the haze of smoke and realize that 420 has become a bad internet holiday — even worse than April Fools' Day. 

Brands that would have once fired someone for testing positive for THC now tweet funny jokes about the munchies. People demonstrate by toking up in public. Cannabis companies push their products, and media companies fire off any number pot-related articles to get that sweet, sweet weed traffic.

Tim Cook: People don't want iOS and MacOS merged

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Fri, 04/20/2018 - 08:19

If you've had some kind of fantasy about MacOS features on your iPad, Tim Cook is putting that dream to rest.

Despite rumours of allowing developers to create apps that work on iOS and MacOS, the Apple chief told the Sydney Morning Herald they're two experiences that should be kept separate.

SEE ALSO: Apple's next iPhones might be bigger and cheaper

"We don't believe in sort of watering down one for the other. Both [The Mac and iPad] are incredible. One of the reasons that both of them are incredible is because we pushed them to do what they do well. And if you begin to merge the two ... you begin to make trade offs and compromises," Cook told the newspaper. Read more...

Ariana Grande references Manchester in uplifting 'No Tears Left To Cry' video

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Fri, 04/20/2018 - 07:08

Ariana Grande is back with her first single of 2018, and it contains references to the Manchester attack which took place at the pop star's concert last May.

"No Tears Left To Cry" was released on Friday, and as noted by the BBC, the music video contains a nod to the solidarity that came after the tragedy. A worker bee — which is the symbol of Manchester — flies off the side of the screen at the end of the video.

The song was co-written by Max Martin, who was also behind Taylor Swift's "Blank Space" and The Weeknd's "Can't Feel My Face." 

Expect this and more in Grande's much-anticipated fourth album, due for release in 2018. Read more...

Google attempts to get Android messaging right (again) with Chat

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Fri, 04/20/2018 - 03:55

As predicted, Android is stepping up its messaging game to be on the same page as Apple's iMessage and Facebook Messenger.

Google's launching a new messaging service simply called Chat, and it's the latest, and hopefully best effort by the tech giant to simplify the messaging offering on Android.

Oil spills can be sucked up by this 'sponge' that's also made from oil

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Fri, 04/20/2018 - 03:00

Oil spills are disastrous for the environment, but a newly developed absorbent polymer could prove a novel cleaning solution.

Developed by Australian and European researchers, with details published in the journal Advanced Sustainable Systems, the material is actually a combination of used cooking oils and sulphur — the latter of which is a waste product of the petroleum industry.

Like a sponge, the polymer sucks up crude oil, which then can be squeezed and reused again. While there have been other sponge-like solutions to oil spills mooted in the past, this new polymer solution is created from waste products, which is of additional benefit to the environment. Read more...

Marijuana plants hidden in plain sight for 4/20 stunt

Look, there's been a lot of 4/20 stunts popping up around the joint. A lot.

Not all of them are great, but a bunch of marijuana plants hidden in plain sight, not hurting anyone? We're in.

SEE ALSO: From smart bongs to home growing kits, the best marijuana tech gadgets

Australian artists installed "cannabis" plants all over Sydney's central business district on April 20 (also known as 4/20, international marijuana day), in an effort to draw attention to the country's debate around cannabis legalisation.

If you're thinking of stealing some free pot, we've got some bad news for you. The plants aren't real. They're movie props, as the act of owning cannabis plants without a medicinal manufacturing license, or giving away free cannabis is, you guessed it, illegal. But it's the thought that counts, right?  Read more...
