What the Mashable staff bought in December

Image
It's the Mashable staff's final haul of 2019 (don't worry, we'll be back in 2020).In addition to cozying up by the fireplace, we've also been spending the hard-earned cash we accrued throughout the year at record pace — the past 12 months have felt like 120, so don't judge us if we went a little overboard with our retail therapy.Below, December's staff picks:A jigsaw puzzle work surface with storage"Jigsaw puzzles are great for the brain. I want my parents to do more of them but they often drag their heels — the puzzles take up valuable table space, often for days at a time. This nifty puzzle board solves that problem, allowing my parents to move their puzzles in progress and work on their masterpieces wherever they want." —Jessica Coen, Editor in ChiefRead more...

Trump signs off on new law that toughens the penalties for making robocalls

Image
With a few strokes from his pen, on Monday President Donald Trump signed a piece of legislation called the TRACED Act. The law hikes the fine imposed on the person or organization behind a spam or robocall to as much as $10,000 for each call and does not require the government to issue a warning first. And to prevent consumers from being tricked by spammers manipulating the phone number seen on caller ID (a practice known as spoofing), the bill requires the carriers to authenticate the phone numbers of incoming calls.
that said, "This historic legislation will provide ...

The 2020 slogan meme has everyone setting goals for the new year

Image
Memes fall in and out of trend, but ASCII memes just keep coming back. Which is why it's only fitting that one of the last memes of the decade involves ASCII art. Like bunny signs or the "In this house" meme, 2020 ASCII slogans use text to create a graphic and make a declarative statement. The first version of the meme, according to Know Your Meme, superimposed the phrase "Secure the bag and spoil your mum" over a blocky 2020 created from underscores and vertical lines. It's like declaring a new year's resolution, or making a promising campaign slogan. ┏━━┓┏━━┓┏━━┓┏━━┓

The very worst denim trends of 2019 (no, you cannot unsee this)

Image
We regret to inform you that the fashion industry has officially gone too far in 2019. Specifically with regard to jeans fashion, otherwise known as jashion. Jeans are simple, classic, and a reliable tenant of wardrobes everywhere. You can wear them any season, any time, almost anywhere. But certain clothing lines have turned our humble blue denim friends into a mad science experiment of tacky awfulness. And who among us has the right to play fashion god? Certainly not these runway clowns. Jeans are dead and we've killed them. Here are the worst offenders of 2019. 1.

Thousands told to jump into the ocean as Australia's raging fires approached

Image
The sun didn't rise on New Year's Eve. The summer morning in a small beach town on the east coast of Australia looked like a winter's night. That black sky soon gave way to a blazing, eery orange as the flames approached. At least 4,000 people were told to jump into the ocean. Gas cylinders could be heard popping like fireworks as they exploded. The town of Mallacoota looked apocalyptic on Tuesday local time as it became the latest victim of Australia's out-of-control bushfires.It was too late to evacuate. "We are one road in, one road out. That road's been blocked for hours and hours and hours," Francesca Winterson from Mallacoota Community Radio told News Breakfast, a national TV broadcast.  Read more...

New Lyft and Uber rules to know for New Year's Day

Image
Happy New Year! Now pay up. That's what it feels like with new fees, regulations, and taxes kicking in on Jan. 1 (on Wednesday) for ride-share trips on apps like Uber and Lyft. In California, there's a lot to take in. A statewide change to gig job classifications, called AB5, goes into effect as soon as it's officially 2020. That means on-demand drivers for apps like Lyft and Uber can argue they should be treated like employees with better pay and benefits, not like independent contractors. Lyft and Uber don't plan to change anything yet with how it hires, pays, and employs drivers, claiming its drivers are truly independent workers who don't need to be reclassified.  Read more...

TL;DR: Travel with the best and grab Samsonite luggage for up to 50% off on Amazon. Luggage doesn't always get the best treatment. From being thrown onto a conveyor belt by a busy airport employee to being dragged to your Airbnb at the top of a "walking only" hill in Mykonos, they're put through a lot. That's why you want to make sure that you packed luggage that will withstand anything that's thrown its way. If you recently put your luggage through hell with all the holiday travel, you will definitely want to check out all the Samsonite luggage that Amazon has on sale. They're even offering their own clippable coupons on some pieces, like this Samsonite Framelock Hardside Luggage that's an extra $42.65 off, making it a 44% savings.  Read more...

The 2020 slogan meme has everyone setting goals for the new year

Image
Memes fall in and out of trend, but ASCII memes just keep coming back. Which is why it's only fitting that one of the last memes of the decade involves ASCII art. Like bunny signs or the "In this house" meme, 2020 ASCII slogans use text to create a graphic and make a declarative statement. The first version of the meme, according to Know Your Meme, superimposed the phrase "Secure the bag and spoil your mum" over a blocky 2020 created from underscores and vertical lines. It's like declaring a new year's resolution, or making a promising campaign slogan. ┏━━┓┏━━┓┏━━┓┏━━┓

Google is shipping the wrong phone to some Pixel 4 buyers; sloppy fulfillment or a bug?

Four selfie cameras: Vivo's new patent redefines weird

Image
2019 has been like one big battle against bezels, and hole-punch displays seem to be one of the winners. On the other side, dual-, triple-, and quadruple-camera setups grew more and more common. Perhaps Chinese company Vivo wanted to capitalize on these trends, because it’s released a new patent with four camera cutouts.

Yes, that’s right- not one, not two, not even three, but four hole-punch selfie cameras. The new patent, spotted by , actually outlines three different ways a quadruple selfie phone could work.

The most life-ruining pop culture crushes of 2019

Image
This list is not just about being horny. Thirst is a key component of a life-ruining pop culture crush, naturally — but there must be something a little off about the way you thirst for a fictional character or famous figure. Perhaps this crush reveals something you'd have preferred not to know about yourself. Perhaps they spoil all other potential or existing paramours for you with their unattainable perfection. Sometimes, a life-conquering crush just derails your week or month or, well, life — you'll find yourself googling them and mindlessly scrolling pages of image results, or watching the late night show you can't stand just because they're on it for five minutes, or just thinking about them saying "Climb in my fur" every damn day.

Dish Network was next, spending $6.2 billion for a chunk of 600MHz airwaves.
