Uber now allows you to order cars for your elderly parents and drunk friends

TwitterFacebook

The days of playing phone tag with Uber drivers and drunk friends are over.

Uber has finally added a feature that allows you to order a ride for someone else, the company announced on Tuesday. But critically, this new features puts the Uber you ordered in contact with the person who is riding, rather than directing all communications to you by default.

Ordering a ride for someone else works the same way as ordering a ride for yourself. But now a new “who will be riding?”prompt allows you to add someone else by name or number. Read more…

‘Sea of Thieves’ is the funniest pirates game I have ever played


TwitterFacebook

My first time playing Sea of Thieves, it took me all of one minute to figure out how to equip the mug of grog — i.e. “pirate booze” — in my inventory and drink it.

I then spent the next five minutes trying, unsuccessfully, to join my crew aboard our ship. They watched in bewilderment as I drunkenly stumbled off the dock and into the water, repeatedly.

The real kicker, though? The ladder was only accessible from the water. When I finally reached the end of the dock without falling in, I still had to dunk myself in order to climb aboard. Oops. Read more…

Stage 13’s ‘High and Mighty’ ain’t your average superhero show. (The clue is in the title.)


TwitterFacebook

What if Unbreakable met Friday? That’s the premise of Stage 13‘s new digital series High and Mighty, which premieres at the Los Angeles Film Festival on June 21.

The scripted stoner comedy takes place after a near-fatal incident, when lovable lush Chelo Chavez (Jorge Diaz) is shocked to discover that he may have super powers… but only when he’s drunk or high.

TwitterFacebook

You can smell a tweet from the Donald brewing.

Only a month after a buddy-buddy meeting with Trump in New York City, Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull made fun of the U.S. president at a charity ball on Wednesday night. 

It happened at the Midwinter Ball, which brings together Australian media and politicians, similar to the White House Correspondents annual gala dinner. 

It’s agreed by those attending that what happens at the event is strictly not to be reported, which is why Turnbull perhaps felt comfortable doing what he did. Read more…

Russian hackers hit voting systems in 39 U.S. states

Russian hackers hit voting systems in 39 U.S. states

The known scope of the Russian government’s attack on the United State’s election integrity continues to grow. 

Kremlin-backed hackers hit voting systems in 39 states, according to Bloomberg

Those attacks included attempts to break into poll worker software on Nov. 8, the day of the 2016 presidential election, as well as attempts to erase voter information. Russian government hackers even got their hands on a trove of campaign finance information in one state, according to the report. 

Despite all this, the report and intelligence officials have insisted there is no evidence hackers altered vote totals. The reasons for that are debatable, but it’s very possible that — despite the effort and level of intrusion — the U.S.’s vast array of voting systems was too multi-faceted to directly undermine.  Read more…
