Pete Souza’s absolute best trolls of Donald Trump


In an internet world where trolls lurk around every corner, one has loomed above the rest: Pete Souza, Barack Obama’s former staff photographer. An unlikely troll for unlikely times.

Souza has stood out for the blunt savagery of his Instagram posts, but more than that, for the sheer amount of them. It’s seemed that for every Donald Trump action, there is an equal, opposite, and wistfully melancholy reminder of how things used to be. 

Since Trump’s inauguration in January, the posts have piled up, but these stand out as the best of the best.

There’s an emoji for just about everything, from tacos to tropical fish. But, we currently don’t have an emoji to describe our periods. 

A new social media campaign wants to smash the stigma surrounding menstruation one emoji at a time.

There’s a camera that records every moment of you kid’s existence. Yay?


Meet Benjamin Button. No, it’s not a Brad Pitt movie, it’s a camera that you clip on your kid to record their every precious adventure. 

Is that even something you want to do? Well, the creators of the device launched a Kickstarter campaign this week, and it’s already fully funded — so there are obviously plenty of people out there interested in documenting little Brayden or Bridget’s every move.

The device is basically just a tiny camera that you can clip on your kid or on yourself (if you’re hanging out with your kid). It’s synced with an app that collects all the footage and automatically edits it, based on sound and activity recognition, and lets you share it with anybody. Read more…

Here’s what 24 hours at the Cannes Film Festival looks like


No two days at the Cannes Film Festival are the same.

The event, which runs for 10 days in May each year, is so jam-packed with films, press conferences, talks, parties and random celebrity sightings that a 24 hour summary doesn’t really do it justice.

This year was my first time at Cannes. Before I left I didn’t really know what to expect. I knew that along with Sundance it was probably the biggest festival in the film calendar, but it had always felt like something of a private party, an exclusive event that you had to be a part of the film industry to fully experience.

Some parents are embarrassing. Then there’s Justin Beadles.

Justin’s 15-year-old son, Jack, had his last day of junior high recently, so to make it very memorable, Justin decided to pull a super embarrassing prank on his kid.

Dressed in a Speedo, a swimming cap, and medals hanging around his neck, Justin ran barefoot towards his son who was hanging outside of his school, screaming Jack’s name. Yep, his dad decided to dress up as swimmer Michael Phelps while his mother filmed it.

Rare footage of Tesla Model 3 prototypes driving in public


Tesla’s Model 3 has been spotted in the wild. 

The sedan, which Tesla is priming to reveal before production starts in July, could make the company — and fully electric cars in general — much more palatable to the mass market with a $35,000 starting price and more modest specs. Right now, cars like the premium Model S make Tesla more of a luxury brand for people living in cities filled with charging stations.

Recently, a white Model 3 prototype was seen on the highway crossing the San Mateo Bridge by YouTuber Northern California Dashcam, who was able to keep up with the test car to capture nearly a full minute of video. The footage itself isn’t spectacular, but we get a good look at the release candidate as the Model 3 edges closer to production.  Read more…
