This new documentary will make you painfully aware of how often you check your phone

Twitter Facebook

How often do you check your phone? We've all heard the stats, but it never really sinks in. By the end of today, most of us will have checked our phones 150 times — on the toilet (you know), at the table, and especially in the car.

In a new documentary, It's People Like Us, Academy Award-winning director Eva Orner (Taxi to the Dark Side, Chasing Asylum) follows five Australians who are somewhat attached to their devices. It's an attempt to expose the increasing dependence humans have on their smartphones — and how dangerous this can be on the road.

A pretty common scene, shown in this still from the doco.

Slack is falling apart and people are freaking out

Twitter Facebook

Slack is not feeling alright this morning. 

The popular messaging app is exhibiting strange behavior; for some users, messages just keep repeating in an endless loop. In some channels, this is happening to multiple users, resulting in a cacophony of repeating messages that's, frankly, unsettling. 

We use Slack at Mashable and this has happened to at least one person, but I've also seen other channels descend into complete chaos as no one knew what the hell was happening. It looked a little bit like this:

Video shows incredible rescue off capsized boat following Hurricane Maria

Twitter Facebook

Hurricane Maria's havoc has been devastating, but amid the destruction there's been some incredible work done.

One such example can be witnessed in this video by the U.S. Coast Guard Southeast, capturing the rescue of a woman and her two children, who were stuck on top of a capsized boat off the coast of Vieques, Puerto Rico on Thursday.

The rescue was coordinated by a U.S. Coast Guard HC-130 Hercules airplane crew from Clearwater, Florida, and a British Royal Fleet Auxiliary Mounts Bay helicopter crew.

"Coast Guard watchstanders received an alert via emergency position indicating radio beacon and then a distress call on Sept. 20 from the Ferrel stating they were disabled and adrift in 20-foot seas and 100-knot winds," the video's description reads.  Read more...

Jimmy Kimmel isn't done being Senator Bill Cassidy's biggest pest

Twitter Facebook

When you're only trying to save health care for 30 million people, you've got to be a little persistent.

The man you'd least expect to be on the front foot for saving health care in America, Jimmy Kimmel, is far from resting in his battle to ensure the Graham-Cassidy bill doesn't cut funding to the most vulnerable. 

Entering into round three of the debate on Thursday night, Kimmel took aim at President Donald Trump, who recently got involved in the debate on Twitter (where else). 

For Kimmel, Trump's support for the bill is more about politics than it is about a bill that's, you know, actually good. Read more...

Here are the first photographer-shot iPhone 8 pictures

Twitter Facebook

It's barely past the morning of the Apple iPhone 8 launch, and pro photographers have already posted some sweet shots taken with the new handset.

As it's done with the iPhones before this, Apple has continually tweaked and improved its cameras.

The iPhone 8 and larger 8 Plus lenses are the same as their predecessors, the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, respectively. But it's put the upgrade in a new A11 Bionic image processor — an improvement over the iPhone 7's A10 Fusion.

With the A11, the phones are touted to find focus more quickly, and are able to record video at higher quality; they're now able to do 4K video at 60 fps, and slow-motion mode doubles the frame rate to 240 fps at 1080p. Read more...
