The internet waves goodbye to Steve Bannon with its middle finger

TwitterFacebook

Few happy moments still exist in the Twitterverse anymore, so when Steve Bannon resigned from the White House, the tweets flew fast, furious, and anti-fascist. 

On Friday, The New York Times reported that the White House was planning to force out Trump’s chief strategist, and the internet was ready with jokes. It’s been a horrible week for anyone who’s not, say, a Neo-Nazi, so it’s no surprise that (most of) the internet celebrated.

With Bannon gone, that’s one less white nationalist sympathizer in the office and, f*ck, so many more to go. Read more…

Leaked images show off one of the iPhone 8’s key components

TwitterFacebook

The iPhone 8 is (hopefully) coming soon, and we might just have a closer look at one of its most important components. 

The new A11 processor chip that will power the next iPhone allegedly appears in newly leaked photos posted to Slashleaks, which were first spotted by MacRumors. The 10-nanometer chips are reportedly manufactured exclusively by Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) and expected to power the upcoming iPhone 8, iPhone 7S, and iPhone 7S Plus models. 

The A11 chip should give the phones improved speed and efficiency, along with enough power for new features like 3D facial scanning.  Read more…

An app paid me $10 to wait in line and then party at Samsung’s NYC space

TwitterFacebook

The line outside of Samsung’s New York City event space on Thursday night stretched down the block, hundreds of people queued in a way that’s common in the city’s club-heavy Meatpacking District.

They were ostensibly there to enjoy the band Judah & the Lion and check out a livestream of Coldplay in concert. In truth, many, including myself, were getting paid just to be in line.

I had on the day prior signed up for Surkus, a new app that pairs people with events in need of people. Surkus can find models for your rooftop party or make your new restaurants seem like the hottest thing in town. On Thursday, Samsung apparently needed people to give their event the appearance of overwhelming demand. Read more…

Look at this bear in the backyard prepping for a fun day at the pool

TwitterFacebook

Somebody get the suntan lotion and a swimming cap because one bear is ready to take a fun, relaxing dip in the pool.

In British Columbia, Canada, someone captured a black bear on video they found in their uncle’s backyard. The poor thing probably just wanted to chill out in the pool, but didn’t seem to be the most confident swimmer. Hence the floatie. 

But this wasn’t the bear’s first visit.

“The day before he was eating out of the trash can in the garage,” the video’s description says. “It first bit the water float, then it put it on its head and walked a bit with it. He fished out something out of the drain filter in the pool, drank a bit and then calmly walked away.” Read more…
