This 43-inch TV is great for small rooms — and it's on sale for $200

Save $50: As of Jan. 25, the Hisense 43-inch smart TV (43H5500G) is on sale for $199.99, down from $249.99.


Big, fancy TVs are cool, but if you're looking for a TV for your bedroom or small living room, a 65-inch set just doesn't seem practical. A 43-inch television makes more sense.

As of Jan. 25, one of Amazon's deals of the day is a 43-inch Hisense Full HD Android smart TV, which is on sale for $199.99, saving you $50.

Just because this isn't a Sony or Samsung doesn't mean it's not an impressive TV. It's got immersive surround sound, sharp resolution, and image processing that reduces lag during fast-moving scenes. The Hisense TV also has Google Assistant built in and comes with a voice remote. Plus, the built-in Bluetooth lets you connect compatible soundbars and headphones. Read more...

Looking to sell stuff online? A .store domain can help you stand out.

TL;DR: As of Jan. 25, score a .store domain extension for your online shop starting at only $4.99.


Launching an online store is simpler than ever in 2021. In fact, practically anyone with a basic knowledge of the internet can launch a digital storefront from home. 

But with that ease comes a different problem: over-saturation. It's hard to find a catchy domain name that’s actually available. Sure, it’s the content of your website that matters most, but how are people going to find that content if you’re stuck using a clunky URL?

You can attract more customers, save time and money, and let your URL do some of the talking for you by opting for a .store domain extension. Read more...

Google workers in 10 countries form union alliance: 'We will hold Alphabet accountable'

Workers at Google's parent company Alphabet from across the globe are banding together in one big union. 

The new coalition, called Alpha Global, consists of 13 unions representing Alphabet workers in 10 countries, including the U.S., UK, Germany, Switzerland and Sweden. The coalition was formed in coordination with global union federation UNI Global Union, which has 20 million members. 

Alpha Global issued a statement saying its goal is to "see a world in which Alphabet respects human and labour rights across its global operations and supply chain."

The statement says Alphabet is a "major incubator of innovations" and a "technology leader." However, it is also "a creator of inequalities, implicated in sexual harassment and oppression of sexual minorities and people of colour." Read more...

'Black excellence': Gymnast Nia Dennis blesses the internet with another stunning floor routine

'Black excellence': Gymnast Nia Dennis blesses the internet with another stunning floor routine

Last February, UCLA's Nia Dennis went viral for a flawless, swaggering floor routine set to a Beyoncé medley. So how do you follow that? By adding Kendrick Lamar, Missy Elliott, and Tupac, apparently.

Dennis helped take her team to a win over Arizona State on Saturday with this joyous, confident celebration of Black excellence, opening with Kendrick's defiant "DNA" and (ahem) rounded off with "California Love" — which obviously went down a treat with the hometown crowd. 

"This routine definitely reflects everything that I am today as a woman,” Dennis told the Los Angeles Daily News, “and of course I had to incorporate a lot of parts of my culture. I wanted to have a dance party because that’s my personality and of course I had to shout out LA because we out here, UCLA.” Read more...

Your social platforms might have less fodder for Saturday Night Live sketches after removing the remaining Trump family-members-turned-political-leaders from your follows, but the new administration includes a fresh cast of characters. 

President Joe Biden has a host of grandkids, and two dogs. Vice President Kamala Harris is married to the country's first Second Gentleman, who has two young adult children from a previous marriage. Then, the White House cabinet is shaping up with nominee confirmation hearings that aren't likely to be struck down in a Democrat-controlled Senate.

Apple warns iPhone 12, MagSafe users with medical implants to keep a safe distance

Apple warns iPhone 12, MagSafe users with medical implants to keep a safe distance

Earlier in January, a medical study done by the Heart Rhythm Society (first spotted by MacMagazine) suggested the iPhone 12 and MagSafe accessories can interfere with medical devices — such as defibrillators and pacemakers. Now, a few weeks after the study was published, Apple has updated its support documentation with more information related to the issue.

In case you're unfamiliar, Apple first announced that its MagSafe technology was included in the iPhone 12 at an October 2020 hardware event. Basically, each of the new iPhones comes with an array of magnets around the wireless charging coils, allowing you to clip it onto any of Apple's new wireless "MagSafe" chargers. Read more...

Tesla sues a former employee for allegedly taking automation files

Tesla sues a former employee for allegedly taking automation files

Tesla hired and then almost immediately fired a software automation engineer earlier in January for allegedly stealing proprietary information about the electric car company. Now the company is suing the engineer.

In a court filing from Friday, Tesla sued software engineer Alex Khatilov for downloading Tesla files to his Dropbox account. Tesla claims he stole thousands of files pertaining to automation for Tesla business processes like supply chain, inventory, product planning, and more. In the suit, Tesla estimates the files represent "200 man-years of work."

Tesla has its own backend software called WARP Drive and the company claims Khatilov, in his first three days on the job, stole system scripts, or code files in the computer programming language Python. Electrek has the U.S. District Court complaint uploaded with all the details of the suit.  Read more...

Seth Rogen is trending because Ted Cruz is desperate for a distraction

Seth Rogen is trending because Ted Cruz is desperate for a distraction

Eyes on the ball, folks.

There's general agreement at this point among people who aren't actively lying to the American public about the 2020 election that Ted Cruz bears some responsibility for the violent invasion of the U.S. Capitol by Trump supporters on Jan. 6. So it's not really a leap to view Cruz's sudden interest in beefing with Seth Rogen on Twitter as a limp attempt to get people thinking about something else.

The Hollywood star rocketed to the top of Twitter trends on Sunday morning after a days-long back-and-forth with Cruz. The antagonistic tweeting escalated after a late Saturday comment from the Senator that described Rogen as "a Marxist with Tourette's," referencing a neurological disorder that manifests with physical and verbal tics.

SpaceX sends more than 100 satellites skyward in a dazzling Sunday launch

It's been a busy weekend for SpaceX.

The company sent yet another rocket racing off into orbit on Sunday morning after a planned Saturday launch was called off due to inclement weather. The rocket, dubbed Transporter-1, is loaded with some very special cargo: A gigantic pile of satellites.

There are 143 in total aboard Transporter-1. Of those, 133 belong to government and business interests. The other 10 are Starlink satellites, the orbital high-speed internet project spearheaded by SpaceX.

Notably, Transporter-1's cargo makes this particular launch more historic than most. The 143 satellites it's ferrying up into the space are "the most spacecraft ever deployed on a single mission," according to SpaceX. Read more...

Microsoft's new Surface Pro 7 ad hits Apple's MacBook Pro where it really hurts

In 2021, Microsoft woke up and chose brutal honesty

In its latest ad for the Surface Pro 7 (by way of MS Power User), the company spent 30 seconds listing all the ways it believes the 2-in-1 laptop is better than Apple's MacBook Pro.

The video starts out by going after what many consider the MacBook Pro's greatest weakness: the Touch Bar. Comparing it to the Surface Pro's stylus and touchscreen capabilities, the young boy praising the device points out:

It appears that Apple is aware of how awful the Touch Bar feature is, though. According to analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, the company is planning on replacing it with physical keys for the upcoming 14-inch and 16-inch models. Read more...

How to share your WiFi password from your iPhone

How to share your WiFi password from your iPhone

We get it. With data breaches happening all the time, it’s important to have a strong WiFi password. But when your friend comes over to live-tweet the latest Bachelor, it can be tedious to type in a password that looks like a cat tap-danced on your keyboard. Thanks to the developers at Apple, there is now a feature that helps you share your WiFi password from your iPhone. 

First things first: Make sure that both the device that’s sharing the password and the device receiving it are up to date with the latest versions. Otherwise, this feature won’t work. Apple added it with the iOS 11 update, so sharing your password is only possible with a device that has this version or higher. If your devices are up to date, skip the next section and go straight to how to share your password. Read more...

How to ferment your food (and why you definitely should)

Sun, 24 Jan 2021 13:00:00 +0000
How to ferment your food (and why you definitely should)

In the days before refrigerators, chemical preservatives, and fossil-fueled transportation, starving to death in the winter was a much more pervasive fear. Fermentation first arose more than 10,000 years ago, when the first known yogurt was (probably accidentally) created in North Africa, which paved the way for a crucial and healthy form of preservation that reshaped our relationship with food and survival.  

Fermentation gives us a wide range of delicious concoctions, like sour pickles, funky kimchi, intoxicating alcohols, addictive cheeses, tasty breads, and so much more. As food preparation methods go, it’s one of the easiest ways to turn raw food into something spectacular — and have it keep for weeks or months. Read more...

Inmates are learning to be their own bosses after they leave jail behind

When we spend so much of our time online, we’re bound to learn something while clicking and scrolling. Discover something new with Mashable’s series I learned it on the internet.


Toccara King loves people. The 39-year-old was a gregarious Florida kid — a dancer, cheerleader, and gymnast — raised by her military grandparents and later joined the military herself. She said she's always had the spirit of a self-starter.

After working as a Verizon telemarketer for eight years and then relocating to Charlotte, North Carolina, she decided to start a moving company with her friend in 2015. It was a way to combine her love of people, customer service, and travel. But it was also a bad idea, she said. There were too many moving parts (pardon the pun), and in 2017 King was arrested for her involvement in a marijuana trafficking scheme. The moving business "had more customers than I could actually keep up with... It was hard to keep employees... And I winded up here in jail, so I wasn't able to get that far into it," King explained.  Read more...

Never trust a single source: The new rules for learning anything online

When we spend so much of our time online, we’re bound to learn something while clicking and scrolling. Discover something new with Mashable’s series I learned it on the internet.


When I was a teenager in the 1990s, I borrowed a library book on the prophecies of Nostradamus. For weeks I annoyed my family with all the supposed evidence for its main claim, that the 16th century French mystic had predicted the end of the world in 1999. Luckily, the World Wide Web wasn’t really a thing yet, so after I returned the book my Nostradamus fever broke. Only years later did I look back and see my confirmation bias. I’d felt the now-familiar thrill of doing research, without realizing that what I was researching was bullshit — from mistranslated start to misinterpreted finish.  Read more...
