John Boyega breaks down the horrible moment he found out his lost 'Star Wars' script was on eBay

Image
We already know the harrowing story of John Boyega's lost Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker script being sold on eBay by a cleaner who discovered it under his bed. But how exactly did he first learn what had happened, and just how terrified was he when he did?"I received a call from my agent, saying, 'Mate, I've just received a call from Disney and all the big Gods of the movie industry that you work for, that your livelihood comes from, saying that you lost the most powerful script in Hollywood right now," Boyega explains to Jimmy Fallon.

This portable speaker is now less than half-price

TL;DR: The Ultimate Ears Wonderboom speaker is on sale for £39.99 on Amazon, saving you 56% on list price.We would like to start with an apology, because not so long ago we told you about a deal on the Ultimate Ears Wonderboom speaker, but we spoke too soon. At the time this speaker was on sale for £49.99, and we thought that was a great deal. Unfortunately for anyone who took that deal, it has now dropped in price to just £39.99 on Amazon.

Huawei will sue to stop the FCC from blocking purchases of its networking gear

Image
A week ago today, we told you that the FCC had voted unanimously (by a 5-0 vote) (USF). The fund is managed by the FCC and is funded from fees added to the monthly invoices paid by telecom customers in the U.S. $8.5 billion is spent each year from the fund to make sure that those in rural and low-income areas have access to telecommunication services including the internet. Both Huawei and ZTE are considered national security threats amid fears that their networking gear contain backdoors that sends information about American companies and consumers to the Chinese government.

Watch the Bon Appรฉtit chefs compete to see who can make pizza the fastest

Image
If you need a break from all the talk of turkey, stuffing, potatoes, and pie after Thanksgiving, the chefs over at the Bon Appรฉtit's Test Kitchen are here to give you a much-needed break as they compete to see who can make a pizza the fastest.Starring 10 chefs, the Pizza Making Speed Challenge is a fun little diversion for most of these people. Several of the cooks mention that they don't like doing things quickly, and Priya Krishna notes that she's never made a pizza before. Her lack of experience really shows when some errant mozzarella catches fire in her oven and Brad Leone puts it out for her with a bunch of salt. Read more...

'Aladdin and the King of Thieves' didn't have to go that hard. But it did.

Image
With Disney+'s launch earlier this month and the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday, there's never been a better time to binge old favorites. This week, we're looking back at Disney hits and catching up on movies we missed the first time. Join us for a walk down memory lane. When I first launched Disney+ on Nov. 12, giddy at the prospect of all it had to offer, I froze up. Mere clicks away were Star Wars, the MCU, new original series, and Disney Channel movies I've been yelling about for 15 years. It was too much power, too many options. There are movies I've spent more time missing than actually watching, and having unfettered access to them in perpetuity was daunting. What if they don't hold up? What if Disney+ content becomes as ubiquitous as Friends — always on, always streaming, in a perpetual spiral of nostalgia, but never remotely gone?  Read more...

End of an era: Jony Ive removed from Apple's leadership page

The fact that legendary Apple designer Jony Ive is leaving the company has been known since June, but a small change on Apple's website makes it real. Apple has removed Ive's profile from its Leadership page, marking his official departure from the company. Ive joined Apple in 1992, and was chief of design since 1996. He designed numerous wildly successful products, including the iPhone, the iMac and the iPod. On the left: new page, sans Jony Ive. On the right, old page.Image: Apple/Wayback Machine I've checked Wayback Machine's archives and Ive's profile was definitely there on Nov. 22, so the change is quite fresh. Read more...

Stephen King has some golden Thanksgiving advice for avoiding political arguments

Image
It's almost an unwritten rule of Thanksgiving – or any family holiday event, for that matter – that at some point somebody is going to bring up the dreaded "P" word: Politics.At this point a previously jovial affair can make the swift jump from "relaxed" to "incredibly tense" in a mere matter of seconds.Luckily, Stephen King has your back. On Thursday morning, the horror author took to Twitter to wish everybody a happy Thanksgiving – and to share a simple, five-word get-out-of-jail-free card that's perfect for swerving the conversation away from Trump.Happy Thanksgiving, Twitterverse!— Stephen King (@StephenKing) November 28, 2019Read more...

DJI’s new line of STEM-focused drones and robots make great gifts

Image
As fun as it is to indulge in theories about robots taking over, it would be unwise for us to fear technology.Especially when DJI's new line of ridiculously fun products challenge minds, improve skills in fields of science and math, and foster learning in STEM disciplines. Still looking for gift ideas? Here's what we have in the Mashable Shop:1. DJI RoboMaster S1 STEM Education Robot The process of building and operating the S1 is designed to heighten your understanding of physics and mathematics while challenging your programming skills. Far more than an amped-up RC car, the educational S1 robot can be taught actions through complex codes and controlled via AI technology. This allows for unlimited experimentation, meaning you can race it, teach it to complete tasks, challenge it on the battlefield (it can fire safe, gel-filled beads), and ultimately set a foundation for a working knowledge of robotics.

Apple Black Friday deals guide: AirPods, iPhone, iPads, MacBooks

Black Friday — and sales in general — is not really Apple's thing. The company doesn't typically participate in the Thanksgiving shopping weekend, and if it does, gift cards take the place of actual sale prices.While Apple doesn't join in the Black Friday fun on its official site, that doesn't stop other retailers from adding Apple into the mix for us. Bless their souls. The tricky part about that is you have to do a bunch of searching and cross comparing to figure out where the best deal is.SEE ALSO: What to buy on Black Friday — and where But that's literally what we get paid to do, so rest your weary searching fingers because we've found all the best Black Friday Apple sales that are happening right this very second.

Boost your sex appeal by mastering this one thing

Attraction may be in the eye of beholder, but if you can increase your chance at finding love by doing something as straightforward as learning a second language, then you'd likely listen, right?The good news is that language app Babbel surveyed 6,000 people from 11 countries and learned that 75 percent of those surveyed find people who speak a second language more attractive. And that's not all. Apparently, 93% of those surveyed also find language skills more attractive than a six-pack and/or athletic build. Consider us sold.But without the moldable brains of our youth or forced high school language class, how does a grown adult go about learning a new language?

Intel says Qualcomm's illegal licensing practices cost it billions

Image
At the beginning of this year, it appeared as though Apple would be forced to use Intel's newly developed 5G modem chips on the first 5G iPhone models expected to be released next year. Apple preferred to use 5G modem chips from Qualcomm, but the two firms were on the outs; the only times the two companies spoke with each other was in court. Ironically, both were just entering the closing arguments stage of a trial with billions at stake when a settlement was announced. Apple paid the chipmaker an unknown sum later reported to be $4.5 billion and received a six-year license (remember Qualcomm's ...

This Thanksgiving, be the green shirt guy you want to see in the world

Image
Yep, folks, it's that time again. Off we go to home and hearth, suiting up for battle with Crazy Fox News Uncle (or grandpa, dad, aunt, mom) and their armory of alternate facts. And it's all happening in the middle of the impeachment process! Lucky you, getting to hear hours of recycled Kremlin talking points about Ukraine and the Bidens over turkey and stuffing!   By this, the third Thanksgiving of the Trump presidency, you may be wondering if there's literally anything you can say or do to force a little reality into the disinformation bubble many of our more elderly relatives inhabit. Perhaps you're prepping a PowerPoint presentation on Trump's admitted wrongdoing and family grifting, or taking screenshots of impeachment polling ("there’s way more support than there was for Nixon’s impeachment at the beginning, dad!")

MacBooks are that one, big holiday gift that most people would give up the rest of their gifts for. Screw the rest of the list, right?If you know someone who's had a new MacBook at the top of their list for years, 2019 could be the year you find a price you can justify. The 2019 MacBook Air is the cheapest Air ever and on sale for even less, and Amazon and Best Buy are offering $200 off the MacBook Pro. When you stop for a moment to realize that these deals far outshine Apple's deal for a free $200 Apple Store gift cardafter you pay full price for a MacBook, then you realize it's better to buy Apple products anywhere but Apple.

Apple TV+'s 'Servant' is a spellbinding mystery that goes nowhere

Image
"This is over six years. Six seasons."That was M. Night Shyamalan, executive producer of Servant, speaking at New York Comic-Con about the path he envisions for Tony Basgallop's Apple TV+ series. Six seasons, 60 episodes.After watching the first 10 half-hour slices, I've gotta say: The greatest dread I feel is the idea that this mystery is going to take 50 more episodes to fully reveal itself.It's not that Servant is bad. The core cast of Lauren Ambrose, Toby Kebbell, Nell Tiger Free, and Rupert Grint (plus a growing assortment of side players) does their best. And in fairness to that cast, the central mystery can be quite riveting at times. But they're all hamstrung by uneven plotting that relegates almost all of the season's most revealing moments to the first and last episodes. Read more...

FYI: Amazon has the new AirPods Pro on sale for Black Friday

Image
TL;DR: Apple's all-new AirPods Pro typically retail for $249, but this Black Friday, Amazon is selling them for $234.98 — a savings of just over $14. It's not much, but it's probably the best holiday deal we're going to get on the ultra-popular earbuds.Apple has always been a bit of a Scrooge when it comes to sales, even on Black Friday. If anything, you'll see Tim Cook and company offer gift card promotions on select devices over the coming holiday shopping weekend (as opposed to price deductions), but they'll probably be few and far between.Fortunately, authorized Apple retailers like Walmart, Best Buy, and Amazon don't abide by the same "no discounts" policy (they're the real MVPs, TBH) — and if you keep your peepers peeled for good deals, you can avoid paying full price for MacBooks, iPads, iPhones, and AirPods these next couple of days.

Size matters. A lot. And a new report suggests Apple could release its biggest iPhone ever in 2020. A story from Korean news site ETNews, spotted by CNBC, says that Apple will unveil three flagship phone models at its fall hardware event. The information comes from unnamed industry sources, and it's possible the predictions won't pan out. But the changes would be major. Currently, iPhone screen sizes are:iPhone 11: 6.1 inchesiPhone 11 Pro: 5.8 inchesiPhone 11 Pro Max: 6.5 inchesAccording to the ETNews report, the smallest "iPhone 12" will be 5.4 inches, the medium one will stay the same at 6.1 inches, and the daddy of them all will get even bigger at a 6.7 inches. That's just over an inch smaller than the iPad Mini. Napoleon, you rang? Read more... More about Predictions, 5g, Tech, and Iphone

Instagram's cofounder flew all the way to Rome to set up the Pope's account

Image
Most people fly to Rome to see the sights, indulge in the food, and experience the culture. But in 2016, Instagram cofounder Kevin Systrom made the trip for other reasons: to set the Pope up with his very own IG handle (@franciscus). Yep, you read that right.In an interview with The Cut, Systrom discussed a lot of important things. Specifically, how Instagram has shaped our lives throughout the decade. Which is super interesting and all, but the best part of the interview was when he recalled personally signing Pope Francis up for an Instagram account. It took some major dedication on Systrom's part. "I went to Vatican City twice. The first time was to present the idea. I explained why, no matter who you are, if you have something to say, Instagram’s the place to do it. [The Pope] said, 'Well, my team will look at this and give me their decision. But they’re not in charge, because everyone has a boss.' He pointed at himself. He said, 'Even I have a boss,' and …

The best Black Friday deals so far: Sales that went live on Thanksgiving

Image
Hope y'all are done with your stuffing and already took your post-turkey nap, because it's go-time.Black Friday officially kicked off at 5 or 6 pm EST at most retailers, which means the last of those deals that didn't go live early are live now. We hope you were wise enough to map out what you want to buy with the ad scans, but if you didn't, we've pulled all the best deals so that you don't have to waste time flipping through deal pages. If you see something on sale, skip the virtual bloodbath and snag yours before other customers catch wind. "Out of stock" notices on doorbusters will happen quickly: Some 4K TVs and Apple Watches at Walmart are already sold out online and are only available for in-store purchase, and the MacBook Air is in and out of stock on Amazon.
