Instagram is taking new steps to woo some of its highest profile users. 

The app is testing "creator accounts," which would add new analytics and messaging features geared toward influencers and other power users of the photo-sharing app.

The update is currently being tested and will roll out more broadly next year, according to The Hollywood Reporter.  It will offer influencers an alternative to Instagram business profiles, which the company introduced in 2016, Instagram wrote in a statement.

"Increasingly, creators rely on Instagram to connect with followers and grow their personal brands, however the tools that are currently available to businesses today make it difficult for them to track their growth and engagement over time. We're building the new Creator Account to help solve some of those challenges and make it easier for creators to grow their personal brands on Instagram,” the announcement reads. Read more...

NASA wants Steph Curry to know that yes, the moon landing was real, and they're even inviting him to check out some space rocks to prove it.

During an interview on the podcast "Winging It," the Golden State Warriors star revealed that he doesn't believe the United States has been to the moon. 

About 46 minutes into the episode, he abruptly changed the conversation topic from what sounds dinosaurs made to space exploration.

"We ever been to the moon?" Curry asked. 

The group, including Atlanta Hawks players Vince Carter and Kent Bazemore, and Curry's teammate Andre Iguodala, concluded with a unanimous "Nope."  Read more...

Movie audiences love women. 

According to a study by Creative Arts Agency and shift7, films with women in leading roles earn more than their male counterparts at the box office, a finding which should lead to a major paradigm shift in show business.

“The perception that it’s not good business to have female leads is not true,” CAA agent Christy Haubegger told The New York Times. “They’re a marketing asset.”

CAA and shift7 examined 350 top box office films from 2014 to 2017, defining "lead actor" as the first performer credited in official press materials (also of note: most of these films passed the Bechdel test). 105 of these were women. In every category broken down by budget, films with women in the lead outperformed those starring men.  Read more...

Some people have a hard time staying in one place. For PC gamers, this has long been a challenge. Since desktop setups were the gold standard for so long, the more powerful rigs have often required that PC gamers stay in one spot — or else lug a heavy tower, monitor, and more with them.

The good news? The latest crop of gaming laptops make it possible to play wherever you are, as they easily rival desktops in both power and performance. If you're shopping for a gamer this holiday season, it's an important point to consider. Are they the kind to stay in one place and build out their setup? Or do they like to easily pick up and go?

"Like its hero, it's the kind of film that surveys the strangeness in front of it, flashes a smile, and dives right in. And if it stays in the water a bit too long—well, I'd still come back for a sequel."

Critics like Mashable's Angie Han concede that Aquaman isn't without its barnacles, but contend the flick is at least worth the price of admission. Others are denouncing the DC Comics' tentpole as an irrefutable, outright flop. 

The Jason Momoa and Amber Heard-starring adventure tackles the origin story of the Justice League's trident-wielding hero, taking viewers into the seven kingdoms of Atlantis and entrenching them in ocean-dwelling politics. Read more...

Atop the globe, there's probably no turning back.

Melting trends in the Arctic today are increasingly stark. The 2018 Arctic Report Card, produced by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), depicts a thawing world that is continuing to warm and melt at an unprecedented pace.

"I think that the report demonstrated everything we’ve been seeing for the last decade," Jeremy Mathis, a NOAA Arctic scientist who was not involved with this report, said in an interview. 

"The changes in the Arctic are happening faster than they’re happening anywhere else on the rest of the planet."

Some people have crazy sex fantasies — no judgment. However, doing it, or portraying yourself doing it, on top of one of the seven wonders of the ancient world may be crossing the line. Danish photographer Andreas Hvid did exactly that, which instantly pissed off a lot of people and caused Egyptian officials to launch an investigation. He doesn't plan to travel to Egypt again anytime soon. Check out our video to see the controversial image. Read more...

Sales on KitchenAid mixers are kind of a big deal around here. When an item's regular price is regularly $300 or even $400, seeing that hefty price drop makes it way easier to justify the purchase.

Here's one you probably haven't seen before: As part of Best Buy's 20 Day of Doorbusters promotion, they're basically giving away the KitchenAid Professional 500 Series mixer for $199.99. Black Friday didn't even offer the Pro series for that little — not even close.

Like any other cult-favorite kitchen appliance, KitchenAid has numerous models with different functions and sizes that all affect the price point. While the Artisan series, which isn't as heavy duty, has a 5-quart model that's often on sale, the reduced price is still over $200.  Read more...
