Teddy the Dog Desperately Tries to Retrieve Ball From Evil Chair

22 hours 30 min ago

Poor Teddy. At least you can still get by on your looks.

Teddy — who is "not the brightest dog in the world," according to his owner — tries to retrieve his precious ball from between the spokes on the back of a kitchen chair. For a gleaming moment, he barely figures out how to go around to the front, but he sadly still ends up defeated by his wooden foe.

It's okay, pup. You'll get it one day.

Picturing the Blizzard That Caused Nepal's Worst-Ever Mountaineering Disaster

Tuesday Oct 21st 2014

The deadliest mountaineering disaster in Nepal's history occurred last week, when the remnants of Tropical Cyclone Hudhud pushed moist air up against the tall peaks of the Himalayas. The result, as the air climbed the rocky mountainsides while cooling and condensing as it did so, was a staggering 6.5 feet of snow at a time of year when foul weather is rarely seen

The blizzard and related avalanches struck right when hundreds of relatively inexperienced climbers from around the world come to travel along the famed Annapurna trail

Tuesday Oct 21st 2014

"Just because you're flying on the ground doesn't mean it isn't fun at all, doesn't mean it isn't fun at all. No, and foreheads ain't the only place you can get scars that make you special," Sebastian Milla raps at the end of his Harry Potter-themed song

His "Snitches and Seekers" rap, featured in the just-released Mudbloods documentary, is about the fictional international sporting event called Quidditch, which students on campuses everywhere have turned into a real-life club sport with brooms.

'Internet Trolls' Musical Gives Upbeat Tune to World's Worst People

Tuesday Oct 21st 2014

"Internet Trolls - The Halloween Musical" is the anthem of our online generation.

In their latest video, AVByte takes a break from their bread and butter Disney princess feminism ballads to address the subject of nasty Internet trolls.

The New York-based comedy group tells Mashable it wasn’t a singular event that led to their targeting of trolls, but rather Internet culture in general.

“We were looking at ‘The Fappening,’ and how trolling and sites like 4chan were involved,” says AVByte co-founder Antonius Nazareth. “At the same time, we've been on the receiving end of some really intense, but fun and lighthearted, trolling and we just finally wanted to address it in a video.” Read more...

Apple iPad Mini 3: Still Great, But Not as Good a Deal

Tuesday Oct 21st 2014

What can I say about the iPad mini 3 that hasn’t already been said? No, seriously, what can I say? Apple’s latest mini is essentially the same product as the first iPad Mini With Retina display with exactly four upgrades, only three of which are significant.

Apple’s iPad Mini 3 is exactly the same size and shape as the last model: 7.8 x 5.3 x 0.29 inches. It still features a 2,048 x 1,536 Retina resolution screen, but did not get new screen technology so it's not as thin as the iPad Air 2.

12 Gorgeous Moments From Hollywood's Love Affair With Oscar de la Renta

Tuesday Oct 21st 2014

Gowns by Oscar de la Renta, the iconic designer who died Monday, have been practically obligatory for Hollywood's most fashionable for decades. From the Academy Awards to Cannes Film Festival to the Golden Globes, there was scarcely a red carpet in the past 15 years that didn't showcase a big star, or three, wearing his designs.

Born in the Dominican Republic, de la Renta launched his first line in 1965 in New York by way of Madrid and Paris, where he studied fashion with legends at Lanvin and Balenciaga. He's been a fixture in the high-fashion scene ever since.

14 Things Thicker Than the iPad Air 2

Tuesday Oct 21st 2014

Apple's done it again

The mammoth tech company unveiled the new iPad Air 2 on Oct. 16. At just 6.1 millimeters, or 0.24 of an inch, it's the thinnest tablet yet.

Want to put that size in perspective? In Apple's demonstration, they laser-cut a pencil in half lengthways to illustrate iPad's insanely small dimensions

We decided to kick that up a notch and see just how thin the new device is when compared to everyday objects. From slices of Kraft cheese to slender magazines to Big Mac burger patties, we sized up Apple's tiny tablet

Apple iPad Air 2: Thin, Beautiful and Powerful

Tuesday Oct 21st 2014

Holding the original iPad in one hand and Apple’s new iPad Air 2 in the other, one can only marvel at the tablet progress Apple has made in a little more than four years.

The first iPad was a sturdily built, half-inch-thick, 1.5-pound device. In 2010, I thought it was remarkable. Today’s flagship iPad, the iPad Air 2, is smaller, lighter and much more powerful.

Apple’s tablet has been shedding weight and packing in components and features for years, and much of what Apple added in this update was expected: The new Touch ID fingerprint sensor in place of the traditional home button, a more powerful, 8-megapixel iSight camera and a new 64-bit A8X processor, which is slightly different and more powerful than the A8 chip in Apple’s new iPhone 6 and 6 Plus smartphones.

Watergate Editor Ben Bradlee Dies at 93

Tuesday Oct 21st 2014

WASHINGTON — In a charmed life of newspapering, Ben Bradlee seemed always to be in just the right place.

The raspy-voiced, hard-charging editor who invigorated The Washington Post got an early break as a journalist thanks to his friendship with one president, John F. Kennedy, and became famous for his role in toppling another, Richard Nixon, in the Watergate scandal.

Bradlee died at home Tuesday of natural causes, the Post reported. He was 93.
