Mashable - 5 hours 13 min ago

Kim Kardashian West's new shapewear brand, Kimono, has been live less than 24 hours — but it's already angered a lot of people.

Kardashian West took to Twitter on Tuesday to announce her latest range of products. "Kimono is my take on shapewear and solutions for women that actually work," she wrote.

The problem? "Kimono" is already a word. And it means something completely different.

I’ve been passionate about this for 15 years

Kimono is my take on shapewear and solutions for women that actually work.

We're not fooling anyone with Facetune and 'pretty' filters

Mashable - 5 hours 31 min ago

Before deepfakes and alternative facts, the online world was already telling us fibs. In our series Lies the Internet Told Me, we call 'em all out.

As Snapchat "pretty" filters and Facetune retouching rose in popularity over the last few years, it must've felt like your social media feeds turned into a modern reboot of Invasion of the Body Snatchers

Instagram used to be populated by normal (if carefully curated) pictures of your friends and family on vacation, a hike, or at a party. Then seemingly overnight, one by one, they were replaced by weird, poreless alien baby-face versions of themselves. Read more...

Oppo's under-display camera is now official, here's how it works

Mashable - 5 hours 37 min ago

A recent teaser showing an Oppo phone with the front camera completely hidden under the display piqued our interest: Could the Chinese company be the first to launch a smartphone that's all screen on the front, without any clumsy solutions such as notches or pop-up cameras?

Now, at MWC Shanghai, Oppo has officially unveiled its under-display camera tech, and while it certainly looks interesting, some questions remain. 

Oppo calls the technology USC (short for Under-Screen Camera), and claims it's a "customized camera module that captures more light while leveraging optimized algorithms and AI learning to improve camera performance."  Read more...

Trump's 'she's not my type' response to assault accusation gets roasted by Stephen Colbert

Mashable - 7 hours 12 min ago

Over the weekend, columnist E. Jean Carroll accused Donald Trump of sexual assault in the 1990s. The president denied the accusation, saying "it never happened," and offered up quite the response: "She's not my type."

Trump's lack of compassion was seized upon by late night show hosts, including Stephen Colbert, who slammed Trump for giving this "very, very bad reason why he's innocent."

"So it didn't happen because she's not his type. That is the sound of a man realising in mid-sentence that he's not talking to Billy Bush," said Colbert.

Importantly, The Late Show host also called out the way media covered the accusation, and New York Post, beware. Read more...
