GoPro unveils new modular Hero 8 and 360-degree Max camera https://mashable.com/article/gopro-hero-8-hero-max/ Karissa Bell https://mashable.com/?p=bp-103874 Tue, 01 Oct 2019 13:00:00 +0000 ]]> Tech Gadgets Gopro Hero 8 Tech

GoPro's new lineup of cameras is here.

Today, the company is introducing the $399 Hero 8, which comes with a series of optional accessories called "mods" for the first time. Additionally, the $499 GoPro Max is the company's latest take on a 360-degree camera. The Hero 8 and GoPro Max are both available for pre-order now and officially go on sale later this month.

Both cameras have features that will appeal to YouTubers, though there's still plenty for filmmakers and action sports enthusiasts. 

The Hero 8 looks similar to last year's Hero 7, but with two big differences. First, the camera no longer requires a frame to mount it on a tripod or other accessory. Instead of clipping it into the removable frame from cameras in the past, the Hero 8 has two pieces that extend down from the body of the camera itself, allowing you to attach it to the mount of your choice without fiddling with an extra case. Second, the Hero 8 comes with a set of optional "mods," separate accessories that add an additional flip-up display, light, or microphone to the camera.  Read more...

Tesla has figured out a way to efficiently warm your butt https://mashable.com/article/tesla-butt-warming/ Stan Schroeder https://mashable.com/?p=bp-103885 Tue, 01 Oct 2019 12:05:37 +0000 ]]> Cars Tesla Tech Big Tech Companies Transportation

Seat heating systems in cars these days usually sound better on paper than they are in real life. They consume a ton of energy and typically aren't that pleasant after the first minute or so. 

But Tesla has a solution. In a patent application filed in February and published last week (via Electrek), the company envisions a fluid-based heating and cooling system that, in theory, sounds much better than traditional, air-ventilated systems. 

These conventional systems, Tesla claims, "are typically insufficient to remove excess heat and provide a comfortable environment for the occupant." Furthermore, they're "bulky, occupy space in the seat which typically requires the seat to be thicker, and are inefficient in heating the seat as the heat typically must travel through multiple layers and heats regions of the seat that the occupant does not contact."

Hillary Clinton talks Trump impeachment inquiry as audience chants 'lock him up' https://mashable.com/video/hillary-clinton-impeachment-inquiry/ Rachel Thompson https://mashable.com/?p=bp-103884 Tue, 01 Oct 2019 11:39:03 +0000 ]]> Donald Trump Hillary Clinton Impeachment Culture Politics

It must be a refreshing change for Hillary Clinton to hear a different version of a chant she's far too familiar with. Instead of "lock her up," the audience on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert gave their chant a small edit.

"Lock him up," they said.

It was all Colbert's fault, who had asked Clinton, "Is it time to — dare I say — lock him up?" in reference to the impeachment inquiry into Donald Trump which launched last week in the House of Representatives. 

"I believe strongly that this particular incident has had such a huge impact because we've known for a long time that he [Trump] was a corrupt businessman who cheated people, and we've known that he and his campaign asked for aid from Russia, we've known that," said Clinton.  Read more...

Donald Trump spent the weekend throwing the word 'treason' at elected congressmen like Rep. Adam Schiff along with protected whistleblowers. Seth Meyers took "A Closer Look" at it all on Monday, focusing on Trump's tray of "Arrest for Treason?" canapés, served to anyone who dares to investigate him.

"He's threatening the collapse of American democracy and he says it like he's offering hors d'oeuvres at a party. 'Can I get you a bacon-wrapped date? Some Arrest for Treason? Or maybe you'd like our Obama Netflix?'"

Meyers noted that the president accusing a sitting congressman of treason simply for investigating him is itself an impeachable offence.  Read more...

It's been a little over a week since Jonathan Van Ness shared that he's been living with HIV since his diagnosis at age 25.

Since then, he's been busy. Last week, the Queer Eye star went Capitol Hill to meet with Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi to discuss the Equality Act, a bill that would extend the Civil Rights Act of 1964 to cover sexual orientation and gender identity as protected classes. 

Van Ness spoke to Jimmy Fallon about the need to smash the stigma surrounding HIV/AIDS and the significance of his meeting with Pelosi. "I've been telling a lot of people to speak truth to power and I think I have to take my turn to speak truth to power," he said.  Read more...

Terpenes? CBN? Flavor profiles? 

Choosing weed used to be as simple as texting your dealer and if they were fancy enough, deciding between an indica and a sativa. That categorization is largely now seen as arbitrary, since it only notes the difference in plant shape, not effect it has on the human body, and much more has changed in the world of weed.

With marijuana legalization on the rise, the cannabis industry is bursting with detailed descriptions of weed that inform consumers of the products' terpene content, THC and CBD levels, and the amount of cannabinoids present in each strain. Leafly, the cannabis guide known for its detailed descriptions of each strain, has updated its categorization system beyond just the indica/sativa/hybrid delineations.  Read more...

Welcome to Fat Bear Week 2019! Katmai National Park's bears spent the summer gorging on 4,500-calorie salmon, and they've transformed into rotund giants, some over 1,000 pounds. The park is holding its annual playoff-like competition for the fattest of the fat bears (you can vote online between Oct. 2 and Oct. 8), and Mashable will be following the ursine activity. 


After achieving viral fame on the internet last year, Bear 409 triumphed as the 2018 Fat Bear Week victor. 

But this year, Bear 409, aka "Beadnose," isn't in Katmai National Park's Fat Bear Week bracket. In fact, the well-known champion and veteran explore.org bear cam bear hasn't been spotted this year, at all.  Read more...

Ruby Rose had quite the time of it on the Batwoman set. 

The Australian actor talked through it all with Jimmy Fallon on Tuesday, describing multiple "comedies of error" that happened on set. First, she was allergic to her mask. But then, more horrifyingly, a stunt injury left her at risk of paralysis.

Rose told the Tonight Show host about her experience, how she got through it, and what she's learned from the experience. It's beyond belief that she kept working with such serious injuries.

"I wasn't paying attention to my body, I wasn't listening. I was in such a hurry to get everything done," she said. "That was the world's way of saying, you're going to have to pay attention and you're going to have to slow down. And you're not actually a superhero." Read more...

Just like the last update, this one is mostly about bug fixing and does not bring any significant new features. 

The most important fix is for a bug in which the phone's camera didn't work. Others include fixing a progress bar bug in iCloud Backup, an issue in which the flashlight sometimes did not activate, a bug that could result in a loss of display calibration data, an issue in which shortcuts could not be run from HomePod, and a Bluetooth disconnection bug in "certain vehicles."

TwitterFacebook

Stephen Colbert is having so much fun with the 🍑 puns — which is nice, because in between his vocal cord-shredding Trump impression, the 1800-QUID-PRO-QUICKIE party line, and a James Bond parody that sees the return of the Colbert Eyebrow, there's a lot of fairly appalling news he has to get through. For example, an entire weekend's worth of presidential tweets accusing congressmen and legally protected whistleblowers of treason, and accidentally retweeting shark-based parody accounts of himself.

"The President of the United States just tweeted the phrase 'pro-shark media', which means we've officially entered the dumbest time in human history," proclaims Colbert. "Beating the previous dumbest time, when we thought a spooky bird mask could protect you from the Black Plague." Read more...

Or you could just watch this video of a driverless airport catering cart spinning wildly out of control on the tarmac, endangering everyone around it as they stare in horror, unsure of how exactly to handle this unprecedented disaster in the making.

Dr Kevin Klauer took the video from the departures lounge at O'Hare Airport in Chicago, where he was waiting for a flight (on a different plane to the one pictured) when the commotion out the window caught his eye. Read more...

Michigan drivers got more than they bargained for after two pranksters allegedly took over a billboard with some rather risqué material. 

According to Michigan's Auburn Hills Police Department, at 10:49 p.m. on Sept. 28, the two individuals pictured above broke into a small building underneath a digital billboard on the side of I-75. Once inside, they somehow managed to hack the billboard and used it to play pornography. 

Some drivers were surprised and delighted at the unexpected sight, while others were likely confused. 

The video reportedly ran for about 15 to 20 minutes before it was eventually shut down.  Read more...

Trippy video breaks down how YouTube demonetizes LGBTQ creators for using words like 'gay' https://mashable.com/video/youtube-demonetize-lgbtq-words-nerdcity/ Morgan Sung https://mashable.com/?p=bp-103866 Tue, 01 Oct 2019 00:25:16 +0000 ]]> Youtube Lgbtq Culture Web Culture

It's long been rumored that YouTube's machine learning algorithm specifically demonetizes LGBTQ content — despite YouTube's denials.

But the allegations got a boost over the weekend when two creators published videos pointing out how they think YouTube goes about blocking LGBTQ content from making money.

YouTube Analyzed fed more than 15,000 words used in titles to YouTube's bots to figure out what the platform deems too scandalous for advertisers. Words that triggered demonetization in his tests include "gay" and "homosexual."

Another channel, Nerd City, then broke down YouTube Analyzed's data in the acid trip of a video seen above. Before tackling YouTube's shadowy demonetization policy, Nerd City was known for diving into Jake Paul's insidious marketing schemes, exposing family vlogging channels as exploitative, and highlighting obviously edited Instagram photos as bad for young followers' self esteem.

Show appreciation for your kind and generous digital overlord. 

Facebook is set to launch its latest feature, news tab, this fall — setting up yet another political battle over what media outlets are or aren't promoted by the tech giant. While the company has taken great pains to emphasize that it will be different this time around, one thing remains eminently the same: Not all participating publishers will benefit to the same degree. 

That's because, as the Wall Street Journal reports, only roughly 25 percent of the 200 participating publications will receive any monetary compensation from the tech giant in exchange for allowing Facebook to populate its news tab with their content. The remaining 150 will apparently be doing it out of the kindness of their digital media hearts. Well, that and the hopes of raking in that sweet, sweet incoming web traffic.  Read more...

Reddit is taking bullying and harassment on its website more seriously.

In a post on Monday, Reddit announced that it was broadening its policies when it comes to threats made on the site. Specifically, it has significantly revised what constitutes bullying and harassment.

According to the new policy, Reddit defines behavior in violation of these rules as “anything that works to shut someone out of the conversation through intimidation or abuse, online or off.” This is a huge update from the previous rules that defined bullying and harassment as putting an individual in “fear of their real life safety” or so that a user “no longer feels that it's safe to post online.” In the announcement, the company points out the inadequacy of a policy that set a “high bar of users fearing for their real-world safety to qualify.” Read more...

Google and Levi's introduce a new smart jacket that can answer calls and snap selfies https://mashable.com/article/google-levis-jacquard-trucker-jacket/ Karissa Bell https://mashable.com/?p=bp-103853 Mon, 30 Sep 2019 21:06:43 +0000 ]]> Tech Google Levis Jacquard Tech

Google and Levi's are once again teaming up to launch a line of tech-infused denim jackets. 

The new Levi's Trucker Jacket is infused with Google's Jacquard technology. It's pretty much the same concept we saw in 2017, but with some notable upgrades. The underlying tech behind the jacket still relies on a Bluetooth-enabled "tag" that clips into the jacket's left cuff, which acts as a touchpad so you can control your music and a handful of other apps by swiping on it.

The new bluetooth tag is much smaller than the previous Jacquard jacket.

The new bluetooth tag is much smaller than the previous Jacquard jacket.

But the tag itself is now much smaller than the previous version, and there's very little to make the "smart" part of the jacket look different than the rest of it. That said, you can definitely feel that there's more inside the sleeve cuff than meets the eye (the tag will trigger vibrations for some kinds of notifications), but it's still fully washable just like the previous jacket.  Read more...

The Complete LinkedIn Marketing and Sale Bundle will help you boost your LinkedIn presence, and it's on sale for $34.


Applying to jobs can feel a lot like dating — awkward first meetings, overanalyzing every message you send (while waiting not-so-patiently for a response), and the crushing knowledge that even if it does work out, it probably won’t last forever. Fortunately, unlike dating, there are actual courses you can take to make the job application process a whole lot easier. 

A recent survey suggested that nearly 85 percent of jobs out there are filled via networking — and in 2019, the name of the career networking game is LinkedIn. Of course, you really only reap the benefits of the platform if your profile is optimized. Growing your connections, collecting colleague endorsements and recommendations, and creating a résumé that stands out from even the most competitive of crowds are just the start. Read more...

When Destiny 2 players touch down on the moon to explore Shadowkeep starting Oct. 1, they might also stumble across a piece of our IRL future buried in the airless wastes.

The Lunar Polar Hydrogen Mapper, which shortens to LunaH-Map, is one of 13 CubeSats that is scheduled to head to the moon in 2021 aboard Artemis-1. It's one of several specialized satellites built to look for the presence of water-ice on the moon. 

Once that mission is complete, LunaH-Map will crash somewhere in the Lunar South Pole – and that future crash site also happens to be tucked away somewhere in Shadowkeep's moon map. Read more...
