  7. Vending machines have long been the backbone of the snacking society. Found in offices across the nation, they're an enticing box of happiness, where the only thing separating you from your peanut M&M craving is a plastic window and $0.85. Smart, east, and convenient. It's already the perfect device, so how could you possibly improve it? How about by adding some damn champagne? SEE ALSO: Tour some of the smartest hotel rooms in Las Vegas Someone did just that.

  10. It's time for Snapchat to convince Wall Street and the world why they should be worth more than $20 billion — and here's a look at their secret 35-minute video that's meant to do just that. The video is part of Snap's "roadshow" — a tradition in which companies about to go public visit with investors and analysts to drum up interest. The video is under password protection, but Mashable found a way in and we're here to tell you what you need to know. Let's break down what's in the video: 'Snap is a camera company' CEO Evan Spiegel starts off the 35-minute video by describing where Snapchat fits in. Snapchat for the last year has been referring to itself publicly as a camera company. Read more... More about Business, Evan Spiegel, Snap Ipo, Snap Inc, and Snapchat DiscoverView the full article
  11. Millions of people have been captivated by a 5-year-old girl's views on feminism, which she shared during an appearance on the Channel 4 show The Secret Life of 5 Year Olds. Eva didn't hold back when she explained her thoughts on gender equality. For starters, Eva thinks it's really important for girls to go to work and to vote. And, she's got no time for anyone who thinks that anything's off limits for girls. When fellow 5-year-old, Jude, says girls can't be scientists because "they make silly potions," Eva has a pretty kickass response: "I extracted the DNA from a banana once." "Boys aren't better than girls," says Eva. "They're exactly the same." Go, Eva! Read more... More about Gender Equality, Lifestyle, Family Parenting, Feminism, and Children View the full article

  15. President Donald Trump held his first solo press conference on Thursday and the results were, to quote the always eloquent Fox News: "Wow, alright-y then." Naturally, Trump's presser provided plenty for Stephen Colbert to discuss during his Thursday night Late Show monologue. For example: "To be honest, I inherited a mess," Trump said of his transition into the White House, to which Colbert responded: "No, you inherited a fortune, we elected a mess." Solid burn, Stephen.

And all this culminated into "Smoke on the water" followed by fire in the lake on early Thursday evening. This however, is not the first time the city's frothy lakes have witnessed the phenomenon but its scale was unprecedented.

SEE ALSO: Woman at checkout reacts to girl's anxiety attack in the best possible way This time, a Tesco employee was praised by the mother of a child with autism for asking her son if he'd to scan his mum's shopping.

Hence why he is in his pjs [pyjamas]." Read more... More about Tesco Mobile, Supermarket, Boy, Autism, and Tesco View the full article
  21. As illustrated by the ruling handed down against ISP Bredbandsbolaget by the country’s Patent and Market Court of Appeal this week, piracy is still considered a big problem in Sweden. Despite better access to legal services such as Spotify and Netflix, some citizens still prefer to get their fix from pirate sites. Whether that’s via The Pirate Bay and torrents or newer streaming-based portals, piracy is still a popular route for obtaining media. According to figures just released by media industry consultants Mediavision, in January 2017 almost a quarter of all Swedes aged between 15 and 74 admitted either streaming or downloading movies from ‘pirate’ sites during the past month. Perhaps unsurprisingly, the tendency to do so is greater among the young. More than half of 15 to 24-year-olds said they’d used a torrent or streaming site during December. When concentrating that down to only young men in the same age group, the figure leaps to 70% Mediavision has been tracking the piracy habits of Scandinavians since 2010 and actually reports an overall increase in piracy over the past seven years. However, piracy levels have remained relatively static during the past three years, with roughly 25% of citizens admitting to engaging in the practice. The company, which previously reported on the activities of Popcorn Time users, says that illegal consumption of media is far more prevalent in Sweden than in the neighboring Nordic countries of Norway, Denmark and Finland. “The ruling against Bredbandsbolaget is a big thing in this context,” says Natalia Borelius, Project Manager at Mediavision. “The measures taken to date, with, for example, shutting down illegal websites, has been shown to have limited effect on illegal consumption. In Finland and Denmark, where site blocking has been in place for years, piracy is less than half as prevalent as in Sweden.” As a result of this week’s decision, rightsholders now have the opportunity to obtain injunctions against all Swedish Internet service providers, barring them from providing customer access to not only The Pirate Bay, but other allegedly infringing sites worldwide. While this may have some effect on the habits of casual pirates, it remains to be seen how the masses respond. Blocking a couple of sites via one ISP certainly won’t have the desired effect, a conclusion supported by various studies (1, 2). Expect more blocking then, sooner rather than later.

  22. Since the Star Wars: Episode VIII title dropped in January, fans all over the word have one pressing question in their mind: Is The Last Jedi singular or plural? SEE ALSO: Daisy Ridley won't even tell freakin' Judi Dench what 'The Last Jedi' means If the title is singular, you can assume that The Last Jedi refers to Luke Skywalker. Or maybe Rey? Who knows. If it's plural, it might refer to Luke and Rey. Nobody really knows. However, the official Italian Star Wars Facebook and Twitter account have posted what appears to be a major hint to the real meaning of The Last Jedi. It translated the title to "Gli ultimi Jedi", which unequivocally refers to more than one Jedi: Read more... More about Facebook, Twitter, Italy, Star Wars, and The Last JediView the full article
  23. Twitter's number one priority in the last couple of months has been combatting abuse on the platform. In November, the company launched a set of measures to get rid of trolls, including a "mute" button that helps users filter out unwanted conversations. In early February, Twitter announced a new "safe search" feature that blocks potentially offensive tweets. And earlier this week, the company stopped notifying people when they were added to lists — though that change was reversed within hours. SEE ALSO: Twitter's backend is breaking under Trump's tweets Now, Twitter announced it will no longer notify users about replies to threads started by accounts they've blocked or muted — unless those replies are from people they already follow.
