What are the best video games of all time? I asked our team to help decide.
July 3, 2020 at 4:20 pm 0
Video game fans frequently try to crown one favorite or another as "The Best." There are tens of thousands of words scattered across the internet, all devoted to identifying the titles that represent the absolute pinnacle of games one can play.  There's also no consensus: My dull experience is another person's transcendent awakening. Even the basic definition of "best" and how it's applied to one or a list of games is open to debate.  That's why we're not having it. Instead of trying to crown a set of games as the one-size-fits-all best video games of all time, I turned to the members of Mashable's games-loving team and asked them to share what they considered the best games for them. No other context given, and no guidance as to how "best" should be measured. Just tell me your best video games, and briefly explain why.

The 15 best Netflix original series of 2020 (so far)
July 3, 2020 at 4:20 pm 0
Even in the darkest of times, our Netflix queues shine bright.  Thus far, 2020 has been a bit of a...bumpy ride. Thankfully for the Netflix-subscribed among us, the streaming service's steady offering of original series has provided some much needed consistency. Over the past six months, we've enjoyed the returns of old series favorites like Dead To Me, Ozark, and Grace & Frankie, alongside new sensations like Love Is Blind, Outer Banks, and [sigh] Tiger King. We even got more Dating Around, Queer Eye, and an interactive Kimmy Schmidt special. With many of us having more screen time thanks to stay-at-home orders, the race for Best Netflix Original Show of the Year has never been tighter. Halfway through 2020, which series do we think have a shot at clinching the title?  Read more...More about Netflix, Never Have I Ever, Ozark, Best Of 2020, and Entertainment

Elon Musk tells the SEC to…well, you can work it out
July 3, 2020 at 4:20 pm 0
Elon Musk is tweeting again, and this time, there are no words, both literally and figuratively.  On Friday, the Tesla CEO tweeted the following: "SEC, three letter acronym, middle word is Elon’s."  SEC, three letter acronym, middle word is Elon’s — Elon Musk (@elonmusk) July 2, 2020 Given Musk's beef with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, which intensified around the time he tweeted he's "considering taking Tesla private" without anything to back it up, it's pretty easy to work out what Musk meant with this one.  To remove all doubt, though, one commenter on Twitter posted a photo of shorts with a sign saying "S*** Elon's C***," to which Musk replied "not bad."

The best apps for remembering that website you want to revisit
July 2, 2020 at 4:10 pm 0
Some people look to wipe their web history as soon as possible. (Can't have anyone stumble across those adult websites you visited!) But what if you're the opposite? What if you're looking to hold onto that history? Maybe you're trying to remember that really funny video you saw online but can’t remember what the heck it was called. You can’t find it online. Your browser history doesn’t go that far back, and it’s not pulling anything up.  Or maybe you're just a bit of a digital hoarder, like me. Either way, not being able to find what you're looking for is, well, annoying. I’m here to solve this problem. Here are a few of my favorite apps that will help you create your very own web history archive so you never forget about another website you once visited again.

Here are the best gadgets of 2020 (so far)
July 2, 2020 at 4:10 pm 0
We're somehow more than halfway through 2020 and well, it's been a wild ride. While I thought the coronavirus outbreak would slow down product releases, it was actually the opposite. Let's just say there was no shortage of devices. In fact, I'm still working through a backlog of gadgets to review. But if there's anything this pandemic helped to solidify, it's that technology is crucial in helping us stay connected, especially when sheltering in place for months at a time.  And a lot of the new products that have launched over the last six months have been essential for the lockdown lifestyle. The Fitbit Charge 4 can help with those quarantine workouts. And the Magic Keyboard case makes working from home a lot more bearable.  Read more...More about Best Of 2020, Tech, and Consumer Tech
