1. A.D. is revealed

In a theory fans guessed at a while back, it turns out Spencer and Charlotte were not Mary Drake’s only children — Spencer is actually a twin. Her identical twin sister, Alex Drake, was adopted by a wealthy British couple who later dumped her at an orphanage when it turned out Alex had some “issues.” Read more…

Can’t fault a guy for trying.

The Dakota County Sheriff’s Office in Minnesota  arrested a man this past weekend with an outstanding controlled substance warrant. At some point during the arrest, Deputy Vai discovered a “Get out of jail free” card on the man, you know, from Monopoly.

Yep, this dude carried around the card “just in case,” according to the cops.

The 6.3-inch display is about what we expected — it’s widely thought the front of the Note 8 will look similar to the 6.2-inch S8+, but the back offers an intriguing look at how Samsung plans to implement its dual-camera design. Read more…

Instagram is making it way easier to keep track of comments

TwitterFacebook

Instagram comments might be getting a much-needed update.

A new test on the Android app of Instagram shows nested comments, similar to those on Facebook.

Hitting “reply” on a comment now adds them to a thread like this:

Instagram comments are currently a confusing mess, so it’s a good sign that the company is working on changing that. Right now, replying to someone’s comment doesn’t notify them unless you explicitly tag them again, but with this it’ll be easier to know when someone replies to you. Read more…

TwitterFacebook

You’ll need a shower after this.

During a diplomatic call with Ireland’s new Prime Minister Leo Varadkar on Tuesday, American President Donald Trump couldn’t help but wave RTÉ correspondent Caitríona Perry over to his desk. It was creepy. It was gross. It was not a good look.

Serena Williams won’t be getting an apology from John McEnroe anytime soon

TwitterFacebook

Tennis legend John McEnroe drew the ire of social media when he said Serena Williams would be ranked “like number 700 in the world” if she played on the men’s tennis circuit during a Sunday interview with NPR. 

Williams herself even fired back on Monday afternoon with a couple tweets. 

But neither Williams nor her many fans should hold their breath waiting on an apology from McEnroe. 

McEnroe appeared on CBS Tuesday morning for the latest stop in his book-promoting tour. On the program This Morning, he was asked if he’d like to apologize for what he said. He responded with a firm nope. 

He did, however, allow that what he said “wasn’t necessary,” while insisting he didn’t know it would become a controversial topic of internet debate. McEnroe also said he’d currently be ranked “about 1,200 in the world” if he was still playing professionally at 58 years old.  Read more…

Disney World clears out the rumors: Trump will indeed voice his own robot

TwitterFacebook

Disney is finally setting the record straight on President Donald Trump and its iconic Disney World exhibit, the Hall of Presidents. 

Trump. Will. Speak.

“Despite some media reports to the contrary, President Trump will have a speaking role in The Hall of Presidents, like every president since 1993,” wrote Disney Parks Editorial Content Director Tom Smith on the official Disney Parks blog.

Other than comments from Disney CEO Bob Iger, this is the first official comment regarding the exhibit since it closed early this year for renovations. At the time, Disney Park’s promised a June 29 reopening. Then, without fanfare, Disney removed the reopening date from the Disney Park site.

Since then, there’s been significant speculation about what role Trump would play in the hall, which has been updated with new presidents since Richard Nixon in the early 1970s and offered a crucial speaking role to every sitting president since Bill Clinton. Read more…

Marissa Mayer defends Travis Kalanick: ‘I just don’t think he knew’ about the toxic Uber culture

TwitterFacebook

Travis Kalanick has at least one other recently unemployed chief executive in his corner.

Former Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer defended the disgraced Uber leader’s honor — or at least his  obliviousness — in a speech in Palo Alto on Tuesday, according to the San Francisco Chronicle.

“I just don’t think he knew,” Mayer reportedly said of why Kalanick let such a toxic culture of systemic sexism fester at the ride-hailing company. “When your company scales that quickly, it’s hard.”

“Scale is incredibly tricky,” she added. “I count Travis as one of my friends. I think he’s a phenomenal leader; Uber is ridiculously interesting.” Read more…
