TL;DR: The comprehensive Entrepreneur Startup Master Class Bundle is a crash course in starting a business, and on sale for just $29 in the Mashable Shop.

In order to turn your million-dollar idea into a reality, you either have to wing it, reach out to other entrepreneurs for advice, or look to the internet for instruction. If you opt for the latter, this Entrepreneur Startup Master Class Bundle has a ton of insight into becoming a successful entrepreneur. All you need is an internet connection and $29. Read more...

Save $11 on these auto-shutoff charging cables

Wed, 19 Jun 2019 09:00:00 +0000
TwitterFacebook

TL;DR: The energy-saving Charby Sense cables shut off as soon as your device reaches a full battery — and you can grab one for just $28 in the Mashable Shop.


They say the only constant in life is change, and while that's true, we'd like to add an addendum: the only constants in life are change and broken standard-issue charging cables.

It's true: the wires supplied by device manufacturers (*coughs* Apple *coughs*) are flimsy and last a few months at most. You're better off relying on third-party options that can quite literally last you a lifetime.

Below, we've rounded up three options by Charby that are all on sale: Read more...

LG OLED 4K TVs on sale: Take an extra $100 off these 55-inch displays

Wed, 19 Jun 2019 09:00:00 +0000
TwitterFacebook

TL;DR: The 55-inch OLED 4K HDTVs from LG's E8, C8, and B8 series offer incredible levels of picture detail, and if you hurry, you can shave an additional $50 to $100 off their sale prices in the PCMag Shop.


In the cases of tapeworms, pimples, and earthbound asteroids, "bigger" is the exact opposite of "better." That's not so with TVs, though: The bigger your display, the more immersive and cinematic its picture quality tends to be. (This is especially true with 4K HDTV models.)

The biggest downside to large TVs — as in, those over 50 inches wide — used to be that they were bulky and often too heavy to mount. But thanks to recent developments in OLED ("organic light-emitting diode") technology, those gigantic displays can now be made sleek, thin, and super lightweight.  Read more...

If you're running away from something, make sure it's not right by a pack of cameras, and the police.

Lin-Manuel Miranda freestyles on 'The Tonight Show', announces new Broadway show

Wed, 19 Jun 2019 05:50:35 +0000
TwitterFacebook

Lin-Manuel Miranda is no stranger to rapping on The Tonight Show.

On Tuesday, the composer appeared in a segment called "Freestyle Generator," which challenged him to rap using three random subjects however he saw fit.

As you'd expect, it's seamless, but at the end of the segment Miranda had another surprise, announcing he's bringing Freestyle Love Supreme to Broadway in September.

The improvised hip hop show from Miranda, Thomas Kail, and Anthony Veneziale, had a successful run in early 2019, and you can expect surprise appearances along the way.

"Fifteen years ago, when Freestyle Love Supreme was first developed, the idea of bringing our little improv show to Broadway seemed completely out of the realm of possibility,” said Kail and Miranda in a statement to Playbill.  Read more...

New iOS 13 feature helps you purge unwanted app subscriptions

Tue, 18 Jun 2019 22:36:42 +0000
TwitterFacebook

A new iOS 13 feature could address one of the most annoying aspects of the App Store: unwanted subscriptions. 

The iPhone maker is once again trying to tame overly aggressive subscriptions with a new feature that will make it far easier to unsubscribe from subscriptions. The feature was spotted in the iOS 13 developer beta, so it won't be widely available until iOS 13 officially launches later this year.

With the update, which was noticed by MacStories editor Federico Vitcci, deleting an app that you've previously purchased a subscription for will remind you of your subscription and allow you to cancel it. Read more...

These sex toy ads were banned from the subway. Now the company is suing.

Tue, 18 Jun 2019 21:17:15 +0000
TwitterFacebook

The pearl-clutchers at the MTA have a big, sex toy-shaped problem on their hands.

Dame, which makes precisely engineered sex toys for women, is suing New York's Metropolitan Transit Authority (MTA) for rejecting its advertising campaign. 

"The vague and sexist reasons behind the MTA's refusal to show our ads are not only barring many businesses like ours from growing their companies, but their censorship is a violation of First Amendment rights," Alexandra Fine, CEO and co-founder of Dame Products, told Mashable.  

The lawsuit claims that while the "MTA has previously welcomed advertisements that celebrate human sexuality," its rejection of Dame's female pleasure-centric campaign is a violation of the company's right to free speech, due process, and equal protection under the law. Read more...

7 of the best pet insurance companies, according to actual pet owners

Mon, 28 Jan 2019 16:55:50 +0000
TwitterFacebook

As all pet owners — excuse us, paw-rents — can attest, there’s nothing like coming home to a wagging tail or a purring, biscuit-making ball of fluff. That being said, there’s nothing as jarring as expecting to come home to said tail/ball of fluff, only to be greeted by a few wimpers accompanied by a limp, a puddle of vomit, or — even worse — unsettling silence. 

When a pet isn’t acting like themselves, the last thing you want to be worrying about in the moment is how you’re going to pay for their emergency care. That’s why pet insurance plans exist: They cover your pet’s medical care in the case of an unexpected health problem so you don’t have to choose between your pet’s wellbeing and your savings account.

Google promises $1 billion to fight housing crisis

Tue, 18 Jun 2019 19:04:50 +0000
TwitterFacebook

Google has a $1 billion plan to put a dent in the Bay Area housing crisis. 

The company announced a sweeping new plan Tuesday to contribute $1 billion to build as many as 20,000 new homes in the San Francisco Bay Area over the next 10 years. 

The bulk of that investment will come not from Google parent Alphabet's multibillion-dollar cash reserves, but from a promise to rezone its own land in order to build residential housing. 

"Over the next 10 years, we’ll repurpose at least $750 million of Google’s land, most of which is currently zoned for office or commercial space, as residential housing," Google CEO Sundar Pichai write in a blog post. "This will enable us to support the development of at least 15,000 new homes at all income levels in the Bay Area, including housing options for middle and low-income families." Read more...

Getting out of bed and then slogging through a long day's work in a stuffy office is even harder when it's nice outside, but that's nothing a fresh cup of coffee can't fix.

All the data self-driving cars take in from cameras looks like this

Tue, 18 Jun 2019 17:00:00 +0000
TwitterFacebook

Self-driving cars are almost too observant, taking in information from light-emitting LiDAR sensors, radar equipment, microphones, and cameras. But all the information a car gleans from the outside world still has to be wrangled to be useful. 

Cruise's fleet of self-driving cars testing in San Francisco take in petabytes of data each month from its sensor suite on the road and in simulation, similar to other configurations other self-driving car companies have on autonomous vehicles. A petabyte is a million gigabytes, by the way.

So to corral all this information, Cruise — through a hackathon event — created an open-source data visualization platform called Webviz. Other autonomous vehicle companies offer different aspects of the self-driving process, like Baidu's Apollo open-source autonomous driving platform. Now Cruise is opening up its application for anyone who works with robotics. Read more...

A look at the Ubiquitous Habit of capitalizing letters to make A Point

Tue, 18 Jun 2019 16:18:07 +0000
TwitterFacebook

In the era of text messaging, tweeting, and digital communication, capitalization can be a Real Bitch.

From a young age, we're trained to capitalize the first letter of defined terms, the beginning of sentences, and proper nouns — the names of people and any specific places or things. But over the past few years an increasing number of Extremely Online individuals have invented a series of new capitalization uses that don’t play by the rules set out by English teachers and style guides. 

Nowadays, there's the common practice of typing a word in all caps to indicate SCREAMING, the use of aLteRnAtInG cApS (often associated with SpongeBob memes) to convey mockery, or a complete lack of capitalization, which can be done purposefully to come across as extremely chill, or simply because one can't be bothered to occasionally reach for the Shift key.

Apple TV is getting picture-in-picture video playback

Apple is never keen to talk about forthcoming new features until they are ready to launch, but sometimes beta releases reveal stuff early. That's exactly what tvOS 13 beta 2 just did, by revealing Apple TV ($199.00 at Walmart) is getting a picture-in-picture video playback feature.

As 9To5Mac reports, picture-in-picture was discovered by Twitter user Nikolaj Hansen-Turton who posted a video of it in action after installing the tvOS beta 2 release.

Let me make a video…

The video plays in the right-hand corner of the screen allowing the Apple TV interface to be navigated. It's possible to bring up a small menu over the playing video with three options available. The icon on the left maximizes the video, while the icon on the right closes the video. The middle icon allows the video window to be moved between top left, top right, bottom left, and bottom right positions. Read more...

So many health and wellness apps haven't done research to back up their claims

With the explosion in health and wellness apps peddling self-improvement, your smartphone could one day hold the keys to helping you manage your lungs, mind, or waistline. But we're not there yet.

Typically, healthcare treatments undergo rigorous testing before doctors start recommending them to patients. For someone who turns to their doctor to do something like quit smoking or lose weight, doctors rely on scientific studies that have established the best methods for changing behaviors. Drug companies especially must meet a high bar to prove that their drug is safe, and works, before the FDA allows them to market and sell it to the public.  Read more...

Here's why the future of mobility is sucking the air out of low-tech conventional tires

Tue, 18 Jun 2019 15:30:02 +0000

Based on how much we rely on shared transport services (Lime, Mobike, Uber Jump) today, it's safe to assume the next steps will involve driverless vehicles. But how many of us really know how to change a flat tire?  

That's why Michelin and General Motors are betting on near-zero maintenance airless tires for such passenger vehicles of the future. The two companies are working on Uptis, an airless wheel structure that is puncture-proof.

Uptis is expected to hit the market in 2024. Read more...

Man straps GoPro to a turtle and gets some incredible footage

Tue, 18 Jun 2019 15:26:01 +0000
TwitterFacebook

Looks like Crush the turtle's totally gnarly cousin is shooting some sick pond footage. 

But the credit truly goes to The Fish Whisperer, a YouTube channel full of one chill dude's adventures feeding fish, being one with nature, and recently, hanging with some turtles. 

"'Sup guys, we got a turtle right here," he starts off the video saying. You know it can only get better from there. 

After incentivizing a GoPro-strapped turtle with some fish, we're watching through the official turtle cam view, seeing the lush underwater world from their eyes. 

What's so cool is how much trust the Fish Whisper has in his new turtle buddy to return to him with the equipment. But as long as he keeps the turtle (and his buddies, who start to crowd around) fed and happy, I'm sure they won't mind. Read more...

The 2-in-1 Acer Spin 5 has Alexa built in and it's $200 off at Amazon

TL;DR: The 2-in-1 Acer Spin 5 is a serious Dell XPS competitor and it's only $799.99 at Amazon right now, saving you $200.


You would think that wanting a 2-in-1 laptop specifically would make your decision easier, but not really.

When storage capacities, screen resolutions, and battery lives all seem to blur together, you'll need some stand out feature to help you make your decision. If you're not immediately sold when you hear that the Acer Spin 5 has Amazon Alexa built-in, you will be when you find out it's on sale for $799.99 at Amazon today.

The Lenovo Yoga and Dell XPS 15 are two of the Spin 5's closest competitors, and both of them are over $1,000 at their cheapest. With Acer's low price point and Alexa, the competition is just unfair at this point. Read more...

TL;DR: These durable Beats on-ear headphones usually cost $129.99, but you can grab a pair on sale at Walmart for just $73.99 — a $56 savings.


Beats by Dre's high-end headphones typically have high price tags to match, with newer models costing anywhere from $199.99 to $399.99. Unless you work with audio for a living — maybe you're literally Diplo; I have no way of knowing — such a splurge can be hard to justify to your savings account. 

And then there are the Beats EPs. They're the most affordable on-ear headphones Beats sells right now, at $129.99 MSRP, and for a limited time, they're even cheaper at Walmart: You can pick up a pair today for less than $75. Read more...
