New parents trying to leave the hospital accidentally end up in the royal baby media frenzy

23 April, by Morgan Sung[ —]

Two new parents trying to leave the hospital with their newborn baby ended up with worldwide media attention. 

Will and Kate's third bundle of royal joy arrived on Monday, and the global press waited at the Lindo Wing of St. Mary's Hospital in London for a first glimpse of the newborn.

But before the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge made their official appearance at the wing's entrance, an unsuspecting couple just trying to leave with their new baby was bombarded with photographers and reporters.

The data scientist behind the Cambridge Analytica scandal fires back at Facebook

23 April, by Michael Nuñez[ —]

The scapegoat in Facebook's ongoing data privacy scandal is firing back at the social media giant.

Aleksandr Kogan, the relatively unknown scientist who was paid by Cambridge Analytica for data he harvested from more than 87 million Facebook users, is speaking out in a series of interviews, where he explains that he was not a rogue app developer as Facebook has frequently implied, and that the problem could be much bigger than most people realize.

Across several interviews over the weekend, Kogan has made a couple of things very clear: He wasn't the only developer harvesting and sharing data without the direct consent of users, and Facebook knew exactly what he was doing for years before it acted. Read more...

Spring cleaning is old news. It's time to start your spring glow up.

23 April, by MJ Franklin[ —]

This post is part of Mashable's Spring Cleaning Week. Just a little something to distract you from the eternal dread of constantly wiping all those fingerprints off your screen. 

Aaaahhh! Spring is finally here (I think?) after what feels like approximately a million years of winter in the northeast thanks to a bomb cyclone, a nor'easter, whatever the hell a bombogenesis is, oh look another nor'easter, plot twist: a third nor'easter. HOPE Y'ALL REALLY LOVE NOR'EASTERS BECAUSE WE GOT YET ANOTHER ONE.

Fortunately with the new season comes the opportunity to break out of hibernation, face the sun, and, as Maxine Waters would say, 👏 reclaim 👏 our 👏 time. 👏 Read more...

Drake follows through on designing this high school custom uniforms, which feature the perfect lyric

23 April, by Martha Tesema[ —]

During the filming of "God's Plan," Drake gave away a lot of money to the good people of Miami — $1 million to be exact. But while creating the tear-jerker of a video, he also apparently made a promise to the students of Miami High School that he would design custom uniforms for the students to rock. 

Turns out Good Guy Drake is following through with that and the students might be getting them just in time for summer break.

"Miami High new alternate uniforms," Drake wrote on his Instagram story over the weekend, proclaiming in a hashtag that he too would be wearing the uniform this summer.  Read more...

Captain America must die in 'Avengers: Infinity War'

23 April, by Kellen Beck[ —]

At least one superhero will surely die in Avengers: Infinity War. Captain America should be the one to do it.

Captain America has had it too good for too long. He received free muscles. He got to leave the horrible internet-less 1940s and wake up in the golden era of content. He was given a shield that's basically indestructible. He's good-looking.

He must die.

The Marvel Cinematic Universe has gone on for too long without a meaningful death. The only deaths that have really happened have either been overturned or insignificant. Pepper Potts died but was brought back. Agent Coulson was killed and brought back. Wong was also killed and brought back. Quicksilver was shot to death and nobody cared. Read more...

Bumble wants you to know that it's definitely not a hookup app

23 April, by Laura Vitto[ —]

Whatever you do, do not call Bumble a hookup app. 

The dating app appears to be doubling down on branding itself as a destination for finding "empowered and lasting connections," rather than "hookups."

The stats behind this claim? A new survey of Bumble's users reveals that 85 percent say they're "looking for marriage or a boyfriend/girlfriend." 

The survey also found that less than 4 percent of men and less than 1 percent of women on the app "are looking for a hookup," and 25 percent of users say they "went on a first date with someone they met on Bumble in the last month."  Read more...

All of the internet's best theories about that giant 'Jane the Virgin' twist

23 April, by Proma Khosla[ —]

SPOILER ALERT: This post contains spoilers for the Season 4 finale of Jane the Virgin: "Chapter Eighty-One."

If you spent your weekend in an emotional spiral about a TV show, you're not alone (you never will be!)Jane the Virgin's jaw-dropping season finale did a real number on the show's fans, but now that the initial shock has worn off, we have some major theories about why and how Michael Cordero is standing alive in Rafael's living room. 

Here's our amnesia plot

In the previous episode, River Fields (Brooke Shields) is introduced to telanovelas and to the quintessential amnesia plot, which Jane has never done. We've done estranged family members and secret twins and unexpected pregnancies (a few of them), so we think it's time for this tried and true telenovela trope. Read more...
