  3. What do early-stage startups Forethought, Pi and Recordgram have in common with successful tech companies like Dropbox, Mint and TripIt? They all competed in Startup Battlefield, our epic pitch competition. If you’re ready to step up, go big and launch your startup to the world, you need to get moving.

The crowd — more than 10,000 people flock to our flagship event. The stakes — a $100,000 equity-free cash prize. The competition — if you make the cut, you’ll go up against some of the finest early-stage startups on the Disrupt Main stage in front of an audience of thousands.

  4. In the market for a brand new couch? If the answer's yes, IKEA's website is here to help. If the answer's no, that's OK. You should still visit IKEA's website. Why? Well, the furniture store that also sells the weirdly delicious Swedish meatballs has a bunch of planning tools on its website, which customers can use to get a better idea of how they want to furnish their space. One of the features lets you design your own sofa, and because there are essentially no rules and very few restrictions in the digital design tool, you can make a virtual sofa look however you want. Twitter user @rudermensch, for example, made this "extremely powerful $15,000 couch." Stunning. Read more... More about Furniture, Ikea, Couches, Culture, and Web CultureView the full article
  5. Most people know that flying can be scary, but it turns out simply sitting in a stationary plane at the airport can be a nightmare, too. We know this thanks to Facebook user ‎Deanna Noel-Dale‎, who shared a post to Air Canada's page on Wednesday on behalf of her friend, Tiffani Adams. The post detailed a terrifying experience that Adams had after she fell asleep on an Air Canada flight and woke up hours later to find that the plane had landed and she was the only person left onboard. Apparently, Adams had a row to herself on a flight from Quebec to Toronto that was about a quarter of the way full. She got comfortable and fell asleep less than halfway through the hour-and-a-half flight, only to wake up around midnight, freezing cold and on a pitch black plane. That's when she realized everyone had deplaned without waking her. Read more... More about Travel, Planes, Air Canada, Culture, and TransportationView the full article
  6. Days ago, a mysterious upload from GØAT popped up on SoundCloud, revealing a new project with five new songs. After tracking the associated account back to a social media post from Flume, the real GOAT aka “Greatest of All Time,” we mistakenly believed the producer was in some way involved with the project. As Redditor u/JonathanRaue has pointed out, three accounts were actually made up on the spot for Flume’s caption and fans immediately swooped in to take the handles. Since then, the fake accounts have come into their own and gained moderate attention, clearly riding the coattails of Flume’s post. One “goat” went as far to use the artificial shoutout for his own self-promotion. Rather intentionally, this GØAT promoted and self-released five tracks that mimic a Flume-like sound, offered in a collection called GØAT TAPE V1. One track in particular, “SHIFTING” had us fooled for a moment. The plan worked. Anyways, we were careful to use words and phrases like “seemingly” and “we have reason to believe” when reporting on this mysterious mixtape — but perhaps not careful enough. Shoutout to u/JonathanRaue for clearing this up via r/Flume. Read on below. This article was first published on Your EDM. Source: UPDATE: The GØAT Is Most Definitely Not Flume View the full article
  7. According to an October 2018 report, Steam has around 90 million active monthly users, making it the largest digital distribution platform for PC games. Steam user accounts overall are many times more numerous. In April, PCGamesN indicated that the platform had attracted its billionth account, noting that “a significant number of these are undoubtedly spam, scam, alt, and bot accounts.” Indeed, an activity that appears to have taken root on the platform over the past few months shows that accounts don’t have to be limited to just one type of the above suspicious activity. Steam is the last place one might expect to find links to pirate movies, but that’s part of the trap. As the image below shows, this Steam page is supposedly offering the movie Escape Room “for FREE online” but that certainly isn’t the case. BewareUsers who scroll down to the bottom find extremely lengthy hyperlinks hidden under a pair of “Watch Now” and “Download” buttons. Since this is clearly some kind of dodgy activity, we truncated those links in order to visit only their final destination. That led us to another site called “Daily Movie” which appeared to begin playing not Escape Room, but Avengers: Infinity War. After viewing what seemed to be a real movie intro (the lion of MGM in this case), neither movie was presented. Instead, we got the following; Don’t give them a penny Needless to say, in the context of the offer on Steam (recent Hollywood movies) most of the claims in the above statement are a lie. The ‘continue’ link goes to a subscription content service (Dontra) that has none of the movies previously promised and will only leave users disappointed – after earning the Steam spammer some commission, of course. Another page, which claims to offer Aquaman for download, contains hyperlinks to what appears to be a full ‘pirate’ streaming site called Cinemago. While the links are not directly functional (and Steam helpfully warns that these go to an external site), it does send users to the Cinemago platform, as shown below. CinemaNOThis site, unsurprisingly, does not offer pirate movies. Instead, when users click any of the film covers they are introduced to a similar “sign up” window and are then re-directed to a site called Funwraith. It is absolutely identical to Dontra and as such has none of the movies offered. This bait-and-switch subscription trap is repeated on dozens of Steam pages too numerous to outline here. However, if readers want to see more of them (not recommended), typing site:steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/ “full movie” into Google will bring up pages and pages of results. While unusual, legitimate platforms have been abused for piracy and scam schemes in the past. Facebook, Google, Google Maps and even Change.org have all been repurposed in similar fashion.

  8. Ravelry, a wildly popular social media site for knitters and crocheters, is taking a stand against white supremacy, which includes supporters of Donald Trump and the Trump administration. In an announcement made by Ravelry on Sunday, the site plainly states, "We are banning support of Donald Trump and his administration on Ravelry." The new policy was set in the spirit of inclusiveness, and Ravelry states that allowing white supremacist rhetoric on the site goes against that spirit. We are banning support of Donald Trump and his administration on Ravelry. We cannot provide a space that is inclusive of all and also allow support for open white supremacy.

  9. Seals are a lot more talented than we give them credit for. Sure, they swim, dive, bark, and clap, but with a little vocal training they can actually sing. Thanks to researchers at the University of St. Andrews in Scotland, three gray seals were taught to mimic sounds and even sing songs like "Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star" and the Star Wars theme. Footage shared on YouTube by the Associated Press shows the focused seals intently listening to sounds, flexing their nostrils, and repeating the noises via a hum that sounds a bit like if a human baby were to whine into a kazoo. It's cute, we promise! Read more... More about Uk, Science, Seals, Culture, and AnimalsView the full article
  10. Kaskade is a master when it comes to remixing — and this time around, it’s pop diva Jennifer Lopez who’s getting his dance infused treatment. Decades into the game, J-Lo stays putting out fresh new music. Her latest, “Medicine” is rather addictive in nature, but then again her music has always been that way. Just begging for a remix, the new single sounds even more amazing with Kaskade’s energy behind it. Kaskade is extremely consistent with releases, both with dance tracks and pop crossovers. Just recently he collaborated with Meghan Trainor on their song “With You” — and he’s keeping ‘em coming. Listen to “Medicine” right here, as the sounds of Jennifer Lopez and Kaskade collide. We can certainly dig it. Jennifer Lopez – “Medicine” (Kaskade Remix) This article was first published on Your EDM.

  11. Keeping your company's data safe can be tricky when your competitors are begging you to put all your conversations, projects, and hard work right into the palms of their hands. To make sure its competitors aren't able to look behind its tightly drawn curtains, Microsoft has a list of online services that it forbids its workforce to use, according to a report from GeekWire. They're familiar names for most modern professionals: Slack, Google Docs, and Amazon Web Services (among others). Despite the popularity of some of these services that allow for easy communication between employees and data storing and sharing, Microsoft wants to make sure everybody is keeping all their information in-house with its own programs. Actually, not even all of its own programs are safe, as the Microsoft-owned GitHub is also off limits. Read more... More about Google, Microsoft, Slack, Tech, and Consumer Tech View the full article
  12. There is only one thing known for certain about July's live-action The Lion King, and it is that the cast is completely, utterly stacked. A new TV spot gives us our first taste of leads Beyoncé and Donald Glover singing Elton John's "Can You Feel The Love Tonight," and honestly, we feel it. Though mostly computer animated, The Lion King features the voice talents of Chiwetel Ejoifor, Alfre Woodard, John Kani, Billy Eichner, Seth Rogen, John Oliver, and the returning James Earl Jones, among many othersThe Jungle Book's Jon Favreau will direct his second live-action Disney adaptation.

  13. It's high time to devour 4,500-calorie salmon. The live webcams along Katmai National Park's Brooks River — set in remote Alaska and operated by the wildlife streamers explore.org — just came online for the 2019 season. For the next few months brown bears will wolf down copious amounts of salmon as they fatten up, some in extreme ways, in preparation for the winter's long, callous hibernation. The bears grew impressively fat in 2018, and global viewers may witness a similar plumping up of the ravenous omnivores this summer and fall. Bear 409, also known as "Beadnose," was crowned the park's Fat Bear Week champion last October, after a remarkable transformation. Read more...

  15. Every so often, life serves up a reminder of why we don't just quit social media entirely. Today's reminder comes in the form of a Twitter game. Twitter user Green Chyna put together an incredibly clever "choose your own adventure" story that casts you as Beyoncé's personal assistant. The goal? Survive the day without getting fired! Being Beyoncé’s assistant for the day: DONT GET FIRED THREAD pic.twitter.com/26ix05Hkhp — Green Chyna (@CORNYASSBITCH) June 23, 2019 As you read through the thread, choices come up that branch the story in one direction or another. Most of the options end with your fictional assistant being shown the door. But there's a narrow line you can toe, decisions you can make that'll preserve your not-an-actual-job just a little while longer. Read more...
