“Our other personal charities… we house two homeless people– one of them for 10 years. We help the LA people as much as possible. Now, there’s a lot of mental illness so I can’t let everybody in, but the people that we know over the years can come charge their phones, use microwave or the bathrooms. We do all we can with the limited budget that we have now.”

Twitter finally has a decent Windows app

Microsoft users upgrading to Windows 10 will get an extra bonus: a Twitter app that doesn’t suck.

Twitter rolled out a new universal Windows app Wednesday that finally brings the Twitter experience on Windows up to the same level as its apps on other platforms.

Other than the addition of a Twitter Live Tile, most of the updates already exist within Twitter’s website and its other apps. The new Windows app finally adds support for multiple photos in tweets and the ability to watch GIFs, Vines and other videos from your timeline. It also adds photo support to direct messages, a feature the company added to its iOS app in 2013. Read more…

“We pay $16,000 a month to be on this corner. We always…

 
 

“We pay $16,000 a month to be on this corner. We always have a miracle. We owed the State Board of Equalization $8,839. We had a couple of days to pay it– we didn’t have it. Four Cadillac Escalades pull up, all chauffeur driven, and then a big Mercedes van– Rick Ross came out. That van door opened. Enough smoke came out of that van to blow all the way to the end of the store; there was this big cloud of smoke! In 45 minutes, Rick spent $8,889– $50 more than we needed. He liked us, so he came back on Monday and spent another $10,000. Those are some of the miracles.”

Would you quit your job to Periscope full-time? This guy did.

It’s not hard to see why Periscope appealed to Jon Jacques, a 20-something who worked for a video marketing company in New York City — the app that gives you instant access to a captive global audience. So a few months ago, he decided to give it a try during his free time after work and on weekends. Quickly, though, he saw his street magic performances were turning into something more.

In June, Jacques quit his high-paying job to Periscope full-time. He was determined to make money from Periscope and use it to help people in need.

Feed-twFeed-fb

For this week’s photo challenge, go beyond a simply beautiful photograph and aim to illustrate an idea in your square frames

Conceptual photography is the art of getting a concept across to your audience by using just the contents of a photo. Be it a literal depiction of the phrase walking on clouds or a carefully set up shot that illustrates a brainstorm, your photos should be satisfying, maybe even stirring up an “aha!” moment — they should leave your viewers wanting more.

Chris Rivera, a fine art photographer who specializes in art- and self-portraits, will be our guest host. His Instagram feed is a mix of beautiful, surreal squares — many of them double exposed and edited to illustrate ideas. Over the last few years, he’s grown a following of more than 30,000 people Read more…

Jenna Marbles, Smosh are first YouTube stars with their own wax figures

There’s a special level of fame that comes with getting your likeness recreated in wax, and YouTube stars may have reached that same lofty upper echelon normally reserved for dead presidents and pop princesses.

Arguably, a lot more kids today can probably identify Jenna Marbles and the duo of Smosh faster than they can Harry S. Truman. Marbles, aka Jenna Mourey, and wax museum Madame Tussauds announced her likeness will soon appear in the New York location, making her the first social media star to join the museum.

Smosh members Anthony Padilla and Ian Hecox had their wax figures revealed before the premier of SMOSH: The Movie on Thursday. Both announcements coincided with VidCon, an online video-focused convention in Anaheim July 23-25. Read more…
