Acer's Chromebook R11 is a cheap 2-in-1 convertible that's not too shabby
You get home from a long day of work, plop down on the couch and reach for the nearest gadget. For some of us that’s the phone, for others a tablet, and more and more often that’s a Chromebook. Laptops be damned, a Chromebook is almost exactly what you need: lightweight, low power, simple and utterly functional.
But what happens when you have a Chromebook that’s good enough to replace that tablet or smartphone? Suddenly you realize just how powerful the web browser is, no matter how much Apple wants you to believe that apps are the future
The Acer Chromebook R11 is proof enough: A convertible Chromebook that's completely replaced my need for a tablet because its keyboard and touchscreen work better for just about everything. Read more......Brilliant 'SNL' sketch takes aim at white people who just don't get Beyoncé's 'Formation'
Beyoncé's song 'Formation' is a celebration of race — and some people, it appears, have a problem with that.
Last night Saturday Night Live, in one of its best sketches yet, took aim at white listeners who were offended by Queen Bey's supposedly radical content. Beyoncé first performed the song, rich with references to Black culture and power, at the Super Bowl. The song attracted ridiculous amounts of controversy, which is why SNL decided to raises the stakes a little further.
It isn't just that white audience didn't like the song, the parody claims. It's that they didn't even know she was black Read more...More about Parody, Saturday Night Live, Watercooler, Videos, and Beyonce Knowles10 coolest toys at the 2016 Toy Fair (so far)
NEW YORK — Whether you’re a kid or a kid at heart, you can never be too old for toys.
With the 2016 International Toy Fair in town this weekend, Mashable was treated to a preview of some of the hottest, most innovative toys we’ll see all year.

Thanks to the release of the Star Wars: The Force Awakens film, there’s a whole new assortment of geek-worthy toys from the franchise, from a life-sized BB-8 droid to a series of Lego kits. Speaking of Lego, the new Doctor Who set is unquestionably awesome, too.

The four members of the UK indie band Viola Beach, along with their manager, were killed on Saturday when their car crashed through a barrier and plunged into a canal near Stockholm, Sweden.
The victims were identified as band members Kris Leonard, River Reeves, Tomas Lowe and Jack Dakin and manager Craig Tarry, according to BBC News.
The up-and-coming band had played at a Swedish music festival on Friday and was scheduled to open for headline artists Blossoms at a concert in the British city of Guilford on Saturday, according to the Associated Press. But the music venue said in a statement that Blossoms decided to cancel the gig after learning about the accident.

The host of HBO's Last Week Tonight doesn't just tackle thorny topics on his late night program. Instead, John Oliver slams, smashes, destroys, eviscerates, annihilates, demolishes, lays waste to them...
...according to the Internet, at least. But you know who doesn't love these assessments of Oliver's work? That's right: John Oliver himself.
Last week, Mashable asked the Daily Show alum at a press event if he's looking forward to another year of headlines about his remarkable destructive powers when the third season of Last Week Tonight premieres Feb. 14. Before the question could even be completed, Oliver jumped in, shaking his head like a disappointed teacher.

Video: Sam Haysom, Vicky Leta, Alisa Stern
The thing about cocks, dicks and penises is they're all just a little bit boring.
The names, that is. In Britain, we pride ourselves on our creative use of language. Why call a penis a penis when you could call a penis a tallywacker, for example? Why call someone a dickhead when you could call them a knobhead, or a bell-end?
