Tesla whistleblower alleges ‘narcotics trafficking’ and ‘unauthorized wiretapping’ in SEC complaint

Mashable - Thu, 08/16/2018 - 23:52

What in the fresh hell is going on at Tesla?

About 20 miles due west of Reno sits the monumental Tesla Gigafactory. Construction started on the now almost 5-million-square-foot building in 2014, with the goal of creating, on a massive scale, the batteries needed to power the company's electric cars. But if a newly released summary of a SEC complaint is to be believed, that's not all that's going on inside those walls. 

SEE ALSO: Sure looks like the SEC is investigating Elon Musk's 'funding secured' tweet

The document, sent to Mashable by the law firm Meissner Associates, contains allegations made by a former Gigafactor employee that run the gauntlet from "unauthorized wiretapping and hacking," to possible "narcotics trafficking," with a little $37 million copper theft thrown in for good measure.  Read more...

Fox News forced to apologize for mixing up Aretha Franklin and Patti LaBelle. Oops.

Mashable - Thu, 08/16/2018 - 23:17

Aretha Franklin isn't with us anymore, but her long-standing feud with Patti LaBelle apparently still lives on, thanks to none other than Fox News. 

During the network's in memoriam tribute to the Queen of Soul — who died Thursday morning — viewers noticed that one of the featured images of Franklin wasn't a picture of the late singer at all. Rather, it was an image of LaBelle, who is very much alive. Yikes.

SEE ALSO: Aretha Franklin, the queen of soul, dead at 76

The photo in question shows LaBelle dressed in a green jacket, performing in 2014 at the White House. It is most definitely not Franklin —and if years of shade between the divas has taught us anything, it's that Franklin would have hated this mix-up.  Read more...

Netflix has tons of hidden categories — here's how to see them

Mashable - Thu, 08/16/2018 - 22:37

Netflix hidden categories are the secret to better binging, friends. 

The vast amount of content on Netflix can get pretty unwieldy. Luckily, there's a secret, better way to browse the swaths of mediocre titles on the streaming service to get to what you're really looking for.

Netflix has a master list of hidden categories that go far beyond the usual Action, Drama, Sci-Fi, and the like. First discovered by the blog What's On Netflix, anyone can access them by simply typing specific URLs into a browser. Each URL has the format:

http://www.netflix.com/browse/genre/###

...where the "###" is where you put the code that relates to the particular Netflix category you're looking for. For example, 35800 is steamy romantic movies, 11140 is supernatural thrillers, and 67879 is Korean TV shows. You can check out the complete list below. Read more...

Woman finds contact lens that'd been lodged in her eye for 28 YEARS

Mashable - Thu, 08/16/2018 - 22:17

Is there anything more annoying than losing a contact lens? A woman in the UK thought hers fell out until doctors found it embedded in her eye decades later. 

A recent BMJ Case Report detailed the 42-year-old woman's horrific experience. She had visited her eye doctor for painful swelling in her upper eyelid. An MRI revealed a cyst in the eye tissue, which ruptured during the removal surgery. That's when doctors found a WHOLE CONTACT LENS that had been lodged inside the patient's eyelid tissue for 28 years.

I repeat: A WHOLE CONTACT LENS.

Google's secret China censorship project shares a name with Sergey Brin's mega-yacht

Mashable - Thu, 08/16/2018 - 22:04

Well, this is awkward. 

As Google employees continue to protest their company's no-longer secret plan to launch a censored version of its search engine in China, one little detail seems to have gone largely unremarked. Namely, that the project shares the name Dragonfly with a mega-yacht reportedly owned by Google co-founder Sergey Brin.

SEE ALSO: Google is developing a censored news app for China

That's right, Google executives gave their project designed to aid Chinese censorship the same name as a $80 million yacht. This fascinating detail was first picked up by journalist Ryan Gallagher (who initially broke the Google censorship story for The Intercept), who noted on his blog that this may be more than a random coincidence.  Read more...

How to completely delete Facebook from your life

Mashable - Thu, 08/16/2018 - 21:36

Buh-bye, Facebook. It's been real. 

So you've had it with endless scrolling through the News Feed, notifications that wake you up in the middle of the night, memories that remind you how little your life has changed over the years, and groups that are just too big and you don't even know why you joined in the first place. 

In short, you want to delete Facebook from your life. 

It's a big decision, and it can be pretty scary, but we assure you: It can be done. 

Before you start, though, think long and hard on whether you want to delete or merely deactivate your Facebook account. 

Deactivating Facebook is fairly easy and painless. If you do it, your Timeline and other info will disappear from Facebook — but only until you reactivate your account. Yes, this means all your data will remain stored somewhere on Facebook's servers.  Read more...
