Clever crocodile shows off terrifying new fishing technique

Wednesday Sep 28th 2016

Apparently having life-destroying jaws isn't enough of an advantage in the wild when it comes to catching dinner.

A photographer for NT News, Michael Franchi caught a crocodile performing a very unusual fishing technique. At least, that's the theory being touted to explain why a massive crocodile would swim around with its arms outstretched like it wants a hug.

Crocodile expert Professor Grahame Webb told NT News that the perplexing behaviour could indeed have something to do with fishing. "It looks like some kind of herding behaviour ... and I have not seen it done anywhere else." Read more...

Tinder's new 'boosting' function will let you pay to be seen first

Wednesday Sep 28th 2016

So many thirsty Tinder users, so little time. 

If only there were a way to sort the wheat from the chaff. The diamonds from the rough. The paying users from the cheapskates — apparently so.

It was something nobody really asked for, but in the interests of romance (and monetisation) Tinder has begun trialling a new service called Tinder Boost. Its mission? To allow paying users to skip the line, appearing as one of the first profiles when someone opens the app.

When using Tinder Boost, a user's profile will appear first thing (or close to it) for fellow users in your area, for a whopping 30 minutes. The brand says that equals up to 10 times more profile views.   Read more...

Get free burgers for life at this joint, if you get a tattoo of a burger that is

Tuesday Sep 27th 2016

People like burgers. But how many of them are willing to get a tattoo of one, in exchange for a lifetime supply of burgers?

Well it turns out there are at least a few, as Café 51 found out. The burger joint in Melbourne, Australia is running a competition where you can get a free burger every day for the rest of your life, when you get one of its burgers inked onto your skin.

SEE ALSO: Bright blue burgers are here to fulfill your insatiable hunger for weird food

As with any wild competition, there are some rules, sadly: You can only get one tattoo, it needs to be life-sized and it has to include the café's Burger Love logo on it. Plus you'll need to show your tattoo to staff when you want your burger. Read more...

After wildly popular premiere, 'This Is Us' returns with another big twist

Tuesday Sep 27th 2016

Spoiler warning: This post contains plot details for episode 2 of This Is Us.

The first episode of This Is Us currently stands as the highest-rated series premiere of the fall, so there's a strong possibility that you tuned in last week to see whether it could live up to the hype. 

SEE ALSO: 7 moments from 'This Is Us' that will make your heart swell

After revealing that four of its main characters were linked not just by a shared birthday, but by a familial bond (sneaky, right?), a few questions lingered going into the second episode:

  • Could the show maintain momentum following a pilot that often felt more like a short film than an ongoing series? 

  • Would its eleventh hour twist prove to be just another gimmick? 

  • And what were the chances that episode 2 would throw us another curveball to rival the premiere? Read more...

Tuesday Sep 27th 2016

Sales of Colin Kaepernick's 49ers jersey skyrocketed after the quarterback started his silent protest of racial inequality by kneeling during the national anthem

James Perry, a Virginia Beach resident, posted a photo of the jersey on Facebook last weekend, calling it an act of racism.

Search privately on your iPhone with Google app's new incognito mode

Tuesday Sep 27th 2016

One of Chrome's more useful features has landed on Google's iOS app. 

It now has an incognito mode, just like the browser, so you can search privately. 

SEE ALSO: Google launches Allo, its AI-centric messaging app

The update, rolled out with the latest app update, allows you to open new incognito sessions directly from the app. As with Chrome, an incognito session in the Google app allows you to browse and search privately without your history being saved. You can turn on incognito in the app's settings or from your iPhone's home screen using 3D touch. 

Just like in Chrome, the app will switch to a dark theme when you're in incognito mode to differentiate it from a normal browsing session. For extra security, you can also enable Touch ID so that others won't be able to access a prior incognito session without authenticating their identity.  Read more...
