Beyoncé's dad tweeted about the twins and is probably having a great Father's Day


Matthew Knowles is the first member of the Carter-Knowles dynasty to speak out on the birth of the twins. 

Beyoncé‘s dad tweeted (and Instagrammed) a happy birthday card to the twins on this very special Father’s Day for him. “They’re here,” he wrote, but kept all other details private. He will presumably make soldiers out of the twins. 

They’re here!#beyonce #twins #jayz #happybirthday

Knowles was a longtime manager of Destiny’s Child and Beyoncé, but their relationship has had some rough patches and he’s no longer working for her behind the scenes. Her dad is featured in Lemonade, though, and it seems like this family can get through anything.  Read more…

iOS 11 makes screenshots great again

iOS 11, the upcoming mobile operating system for iPhones and iPads, introduces a new and much more powerful way to take screenshots and for the first time you can also annotate them.
The way to take a screenshot in iOS 11 remains the same in terms of actual controls: you press and hold for a second both the home key on the front and the power key on the left side. What happens next, however, is quite different: you get a small thumbnail in the bottom left of your screen. You can press on it to get to the screenshot, or keep on snapping screenshots.

Man comes across massive injured great white in shallow waters


When coming upon a 14-foot great white shark in shallow waters, the universal response is to turn to a friend and say, as calmly as possible, “That’s a f*cking white shark, dude. Holy shit.”

Dale Pearson and a friend saw a figure struggling in the shallow waters near their homes in Baja California, Mexico. Thinking it would be a whale or a hammerhead shark, the two men trudged out to help the animal. That’s when they realized that it wasn’t a whale, but a large great white that had been injured by a boat propellor.

The two men got within a few yards of the shark as it bled, working to free itself from the shallows. Read more…

How to find great deals and discounts on Android and iOS apps

Name someone who doesn’t like deals, we’ll wait! Getting a quality or, in all honesty, any paid app on the cheap is one of life’s little pleasures. 

Thanks to Google’s recent policy change Android apps can now go completely free. The same applies to iOS apps, which have had the ability to go free for a long time now.
But with so many apps on both the App Store and the Play Store, it’s really hard to keep track on the ones that have had their prices slashed. Of course, most media outlets usually break the news if a high-profile app gets a price change, …

Dog on a roof is having a great time, thanks for asking


Hey, everyone. This is Huckleberry, a good dog.



Huckleberry likes to hang out on the roof. This is fine, and Huckleberry does it all the time.

SEE ALSO: Dogs, ranked

Seriously, no worries: Huckleberry has simply learned to jump from his backyard onto the roof. (12/10, good job.) And according to a note posted by his human companions, he is not allowed in the backyard when no one is home — so Huckleberry always stays safe.

Thank you so much for your concern, though. Huckleberry really appreciates it and would also like to invite you to follow him on Instagram. Have a good one! Read more…
