If you're a hipster L.A.-girl who likes to skateboard, then the new Snapchat video sunglasses called "Spectacles," are made just for you.





As Snap's (formerly Snapchat) first product, they take 10-second (up to 30 seconds) of hands-free video clips you can upload to your account. You can now take video as you do your normal, relatable, routine of skateboarding in an empty swimming pool, skateboarding down the beach sidewalk, or even skateboarding while holding hands in a chain with your hipster girlfriends!





For all your skateboarding Snapchat usages, they cost $130 and are being distributed to a select group to hype them at this time. Designed by tech heads, the reviews are mixed as people decide if they actually want to try this one out.





Check out the spec's--ahem--specs here, and tell us in the comments below if you'd buy these.

It's Officially Fall people, so it's time to get your PSL Latte and eat your body weight in pumpkin noms! Here's a new dump cake recipe to try with your cans of pumpkin.

Well, okay, so maybe not exactly "real pumpkin" in those cans and actually squash, if it's tasty, I won't turn it down!



Let us know in the comments how tasty this bad boy is!

IF you're wondering what The Rock is cooking for his new Youtube channel, he's apparently got a channel trailer. It's not very illuminating but it is pretty bizarre and entertaining so maybe we can hope for more of the same?

PewDiePie, is a Youtuber we all know for two things: making loud noises while playing video games and making insane amounts of money from the videos of that. 

People on the internet love to hate him but you can't help but feel a little bad for him now that he's been evicted for making too much noise. The situation would be hilarious (if you're one of the haters) if it weren't for the real reason behind his eviction.

Sam Pepper has become a very controversial figure in the last few years. He is famous for his Youtube pranks and "social experiments" such as the one where he pinched random women's bottoms that led to sexual harassment claims.  You may have heard of him recently due to massive backlash from his "prank" video where he convinced a friend that he killed his other friend "execution style". Now he seems to have disappeared off the face of the internet leaving only a single Tweet on an otherwise barren Twitter account.

Some people have questioned his motives with the way he left social media and Youtube so abruptly.

But, for the most part, they are just gleefully celebrating his absence.

fine bros react trademark Fine Bros. Apologize After the Internet Points Out That Trying to Trademark the Word 'React' is a Bad Idea

Recently Youtubers the Fine Brothers announced a "React World" program where anyone could use resources they supplied to create their own versions of their famous "React" videos, provided they follow through with the legal requirements to license the use of that "style" of video from them.  When the Fine Brothers announced that they planned to trademark the word "React" and framed it as an action "for the community", that community got pretty upset. They are well known for making their name from reaction videos from Kids, Teens, Elders and an assortment of other groups, which they also applied to trademark reacting to stuff in addition to just "react" in general. 

Youtube is full of 'reaction' videos, as angry Youtubers were quick to point out, pretty much everyone has done it at least once. That's why it could be pretty annoying when one company decides to try to trademark such a general idea for their own use.  

That's probably what began this steady decline in subscribers and a PR disaster.

Eventually, they decided to cancel their program and issue an apology on Medium to appease the people:

We realize we built a system that could easily be used for wrong. We are fixing that. The reality that trademarks like these could be used to theoretically give companies (including ours) the power to police and control online video is a valid concern, and though we can assert our intentions are pure, there’s no way to prove them.

We have decided to do the following:

1. Rescind all of our “React” trademarks and applications.*

2. Discontinue the React World program.

3. Release all past Content ID claims.**


Obviously the original video announcement has been taken down but if you didn't get to see it, this video parody will give you a pretty good idea of what it was like:
