Matt Lauer Banned From Al Roker’s 40th Anniversary Bash One Year After Sex Scandal

Matt Lauer Banned From Al Roker Anniversary NBC Party

Holiday celebrations are rampant at NBC this week, but RadarOnline.com can report shamed former Today host, Matt Lauer, is not a part of them!

This Friday morning, Al Roker celebrated his 40-year anniversary at the network with a festive bash. All was joyful, and even former staffer Katie Couric came back to the show set to surprise him — but no Lauer!

“For a decade the show promoted Al and Matt as brothers, best friends, one big happy family,” a source exclusively told Radar. “Now it’s awkward that they cannot invite ‘dad’ back to the family celebrations.”

Radar readers know Lauer, 60, was ousted by the network last November, when a string of women came forward to accuse him of “inappropriate sexual behavior” in and outside of the workplace.

And while Savannah Guthrie and Hoda Kotb were heartbroken by the news of their close friend’s firing, no one has included him in NBC celebrations ever since!

The insider said, “there was discussion of Matt doing a video message, but executives cut that idea down.” In their minds, “the strategy is simple: to pretend Matt never existed.”

What do you think about Matt Lauer being shunned by his Today show family? Sound off below.

Starbucks adding delivery services to more than 2,000 stores via Uber Eats

Starbucks is expanding its partnership with Uber Eats to more than 2,000 stores in the United States next year, about a quarter of all of the company’s locations in the country.

The relationship bolsters Uber’s mission for its on-demand food delivery service, Eats. Uber has said it plans to cover more than 70 percent of the U.S. population by the end of 2018. The partnership with Starbucks, while it won’t start in earnest until next year, will help the delivery service meet or even exceed that goal as it battles Postmates for market share.

Starbucks first launched its program, Starbuck Delivers, as a pilot in September, serving people in Miami and Tokyo. Its coffee delivery roots actually began in China through a partnership with Alibaba and on-demand food delivery service Ele.me. The company also piloted a delivery service through two supermarkets in Shanghai and Hangzhou.

It’s an experiment that appears to have had some success. Starbucks Delivers has reached 2,000 stores across 30 cities in China since launching three months ago, the company said at its investor conference Thursday.

Now it’s taking what it learned in China and applying it to the U.S.

Tom Hanks & Rita To Settle Troubled Son Chet’s Explosive 2015 Lawsuit

Tom Hanks Rita Wilson Settle Son Chet Car Crash Lawsuit

Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson have agreed to settle in the 2015 fender bender lawsuit involving their son Chet, and a Los Angeles man.

According to the affidavit filed on December 7, Terry Moogan and the Hanks agreed to a conditional settlement, meaning whatever conditions both parties approved must be completed within 45 days.

Details of the settlement were not available.

A request for dismissal has to be filed no later than February 15, 2019, according to court documents obtained by RadarOnline.com, and a final status conference on the case is set for January 8 of the same year.

PHOTOS: Kesha Brushes Off Nasty Lawsuit In Sexy Bikini — Inside Her Romantic Getaway

In his initial complaint, Terry claimed he was driving his Mercedes E320 on Highway 110 at about 2:00 p.m. when Chet’s car hit from behind. Terry said Chet, 28, was under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol at the time of the incident.

Terry also sued Tom, 62, and Rita, 62, because they allegedly “negligently permitted” Chet to drive a vehicle that they owned. He said in a court document that the famous couple lent their wild child son their vehicle even though they knew he was a “careless and reckless driver and a habitual user of drugs and alcohol.”

According to documents filed by the couple’s attorney, Steven M. Maslausk, Chet immediately admitted to causing the crash, but only challenged the nature and extent of the damages claimed by Terry.

As Radar previously reported, Tom and Rita filed motions asking the court to prevent information about Chet’s past history of alcohol and drug abuse to be used as possible evidence in the case.

Chet, who plays a rapper named Blake on the series Empire, has had various stints in rehab, but has publicly claimed that he’s been sober for the past two years.

Cops Tell All: JWoww’s Ex Roger Taken Away By Police After Nasty Fight

jenni Farley ex roger Mathews taken away police details jersey shore

Jenni “JWoww” Farley’s divorce from estranged husband Roger Mathews turned nasty last night when authorities escorted him from their New Jersey home and hit him with a restraining order. RadarOnline.com can exclusively reveal more on the shocking showdown.

The Tom’s River Police Department’s Public Information Officer exclusively told Radar, “At approximately 1:00 AM on Friday, December 14th, 2018 police were dispatched to the home of Jenni Farley and Roger Mathews for a civil matter.”

The PIO confirmed that Mathews was hit with a temporary restraining order and was “provided transportation to another location.”

PHOTOS: Jersey Shore Stud Muffins On The Beach

A source exclusively told Radar that Farley “was really trying to keep her kids out of this and she will continue to keep them out of this.”

“She has never been abusive to him or their children,” the insider said. “At this point, she does not want him anywhere near her or the kids and this is why she felt the restraining order was necessary. She wouldn’t have taken it to this level if she were not concerned for her safety.”

The Jersey Shore star, who shares children Meilani, 4, and Greyson, 2 with Mathews, released a statement about the incident on her Instagram page.

“Certain events transpired last night which led Jenni to involve the authorities, as she felt it was in her best interests, and the best interests of her children to do so,” the insider said. “Any statements and social media posts depicting anything to the contrary are entirely false, misleading and intentionally designed to cast Jenni in a negative light.”

The statement ended with, “She is proud to be a hard working parent who provides for her children… A judge immediately ruled in Jenni’s favor and issued a temporary order or protection last night. Please respect Jenni’s decision for privacy in an effort to protect herself and their children during this time.”

Early Friday morning, Mathews posted various videos about the situation.

“This is the level my ex-wife takes it to after telling my kids their dad is a piece of s**t and she’s sorry she ever had children with him,” he captioned a video. “She gets so emotional and irrational in her anger this is the level she brings it too”

He accused Farley of being unable to “control her emotions.”

“His mother is so hate-filled towards his father that she would do something like this,” he said. “I’m not allowed to speak to my children, not allowed to go get clothes, not allowed to step foot in the house that I’ve lived in for eight years. I miss my kids, man.”

Farley filed for divorce from Mathews earlier this year. He claimed they have been working on their marriage.

The Playground Beef Continues: Kanye West Says That Drake Threatened Him

Michael already gave you a breakdown of Masterdouche Theatre: The First Act featuring Drake and Kanye West as headliners. Intermission is now over. Wipe that popcorn butter off your greasy hands, hang up that phone call and get back from the bathroom before the lights go out.

Kanye West was not finished with Drake last night, even after Drake called him on the cellphone to apologize. What did Kanye West do about it? What he does worst. Tweet.

Five hours after Drake called Kanye to see if he would let him back into the inner circle, it seems Drake got tired of waiting for the “all-clear” and so, according to Kanye, Drake called him back to threaten him:

Excuse you, Drake? We are Canadians. We don’t threaten people unless we’re blackout drunk at the bar and someone is trying to say Celine Dion is not an iconic woman of the world with the voice of an angel. That’s the only reason.

Kanye went on about how Drake has had it in for him since the beginning, referring to one of Drake’s raps where he says his pool is bigger than Kanye’s, which I guess made Kanye feel very insecure about his own pool’s size. Hey it’s not the size that counts, it’s the temperature of the water:

He also made the claim that Drake is the mastermind behind an attack at a Pusha-T concert where someone got stabbed and also brought up child-molester and current prison inmate Tekashi69 and dead domestic abuser, XXXtentacion for some reason:

Was Kanye done? NO! And it is messy. I didn’t even include 1/10th of the tweets Kanye farted out:

But Kanye I thought you weren’t bipolar just sleepy? And he’s still not done:

And finally after ALL THAT DRAMA Kanye says he still “loves” Drake:

Not one to miss out on undeserved attention, Kim Kardashian tweeted her support for her husband:

Oh yeah, I’m sure these two discuss Tolstoy together.

The next time someone tells you that women are dramatic, show them Kanye’s Twitter timeline. Oh, and he kept going.

Hear that? Kanye West is the reason we’re allowed to wear sneakers. Wow. He’s so powerful. And then he went to JP Morgan this morning and got tired of sub-tweeting Drake:

And he’s done for now. And I didn’t even include all of this tweets. All because Drake doesn’t call him enough? What was the catalyst to this? Drake banging Kim? Pusha-T spilling tea on a secret baby? What a mess. No wonder Kanye West talks to trees, they’re the only ones with attention spans long enough to listen.

90 Day Fiance Meltdown: Larissa Lima Exposes Colt Johnson’s Cheating

In the wee hours of Thursday morning, 90 Day Fiance star Larissa accused her husband Colt of cheating.

Many had hoped that she was simply upset or perhaps being trolled by someone.

But Larissa has even more evidence of Colt's infidelity, and now "the other woman" is facing a barrage of death threats.

Colt and Larissa on Instagram

"Colt is cheating [on] me with this girl!" Larissa has announced to her followers.

Distressed, Larissa writes: "And have plans to use me until he finish Happily Ever After!"

She shares snaps of private conversations between Colt and this unnamed woman.

"We need to stop talking for a bit," Colt can be seen telling her.

"Why?" the other woman asks.

"Because she's violent," Colt claims, referring to Larissa's domestic battery arrest.

"I just need to deal with her," Colt says vaguely, asking: "Can you just not talk to her?"

Colt is a cheater, 90 day fiance

"Yeah that's fine," the other woman agrees. "Talk to you whenever."

"I'm sorry honey," Colt says. Ugh. "I just have to deal with her then I'll be free."

While no one is accusing Colt of planning anything violent, those are some ominous-looking words. Yikes.

"You are gorgeous," he gushes to this other woman in another message.

In another, Colt appears to say: "I like what I see."

90 Day Fiance: Colt Johnson DMs exposed

As we mentioned on Thursday, some 90 Day Fiance scenes had made Larissa seem paranoid that Colt was a cheater.

(Remember when she called him an "attention whore" because he complimented a woman's glasses?)

A lot of fans who have been following this meltdown on social media had hoped that the messages were fake.

It is incredibly easy to fabricate text messages, tweets, article headlines, and yes, DMs, and claim they're from anyone you like.

Unfortunately, this does not seem to be the case here.

Because the woman with whom Colt was allegedly flirting online has been bombarded with a slew of vicious death threats.

90 Day Fiance - Larissa and Colt's mistress

"A B-list reality TV star has accused me of flirting with her husband while knowing they were together," the other woman writes.

(Honestly, referring to Colt or Larissa as "B-List" may be overly generous)

"He said they were separated," the woman shares. "And I stupidly believed him."

"I have had 100s of people send me death threats in the last few hours," she reveals.

It's truly terrifying to see the kind of vitriol that people can hurl, en masse, when they feel motivated.

90 Day Fiance - Larissa and Colt wedding pic header

Larissa disputes the woman's claim.

"Colt is wrong and she is wrong!" Larissa announces.

"She was following me," Larissa points out. "She was seeing us together 24 hours!"

Larissa says that her followers saw them "going to gym and doing things, plus he had pictures of us one week ago."

It would be easy for a reality star to convince someone that what goes on Instagram is all just for show.

"She's playing and like the game," Larissa concludes. "Both are wrong."

Colt and Larissa in the Cold

We can remember a time, just weeks ago, when it looked like Larissa was the real villain in this relationship.

Now, it's looking like Colt has been stringing her along for fame so that he can use that to "upgrade" to some other woman.

Was this his plan all along, or is he just insufferably horny?

(A woman claiming to be Colt's ex-girlfriend has claimed online that he's a sex addict with a lot of weird fetishes, but we cannot confirm any of that)

Either way, it looks like Larissa and Colt are headed for divorce.

It also looks like they've cemented their place as this season's most over-the-top pair.

They could give Danielle and Mohamed a run for their money.

Laura Anderson Flaunts Her Perfect Bikini Curves

Laura Anderson is about as lickable, I mean likable, as women in bikini come. Before, I was just fine with the sun, sand, and seawater. But now I’m beginning to think that seeing Laura at the shore is also necessary. I mean, will you look at this impressive specimen. I think I’m about to become a bikini-ologist. Someone needs to study these fine women in their natural habitat. It is a crime against humanity to not observe, form hypotheses, and figure out facts about hot women wearing next to nothing at the beach. Bikini study can be its own field, but at the very least it should be incorporated into the curriculum of a college course.

I have a notebook, pencil, and sun tan lotion. That’s everything I need for the observation part. As for the hypothesis part, I speculate that Laura is the hottest woman at every beach she steps foot on 100 percent of the time. To test my theory I’ll need to follow her around from beach to beach to conduct my experiment. I hope she isn’t freaked out. I’m pretty certain after intensive study my notes will prove that my theory is accurate. And Anderson, is indeed, the hottest woman at every beach she sets foot on, every time.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry Unveil First-Ever Christmas Card, Take on William and Kate

Meghan Markle, Prince Harry, Kate Middleton and Prince William are preparing for a very awkward Christmas.

And we're here to make it even more tension-filled!

A Fab Four

As you have very likely heard by now, there's an alleged feud between Markle and Middleton.

There's also an alleged feud between Harry and William over how each feels about the former's new wife.

Acutely aware of the perception around the globe about these four members of the Royal Family, Kensington Palace has basically ordered the quarter to spend the holidays together.

According to multiple outlets, Kate and William were planning on being with the Middletons on December 25 -- until higher-ups stepped in and decided otherwise.

Now, both couples will be in London for the birthday of Jesus Christ, as the world prepares to analyze each and every photo of them on their way to church that morning.

Before that opportunity, arises, however, the tandems have given fans two more photos to analyze.

Markle and Harry Christmas Card

The first is a brand new snapshot from Markle and Harry's wedding, unveiled on Friday morning for the first time because it will be the lead picture of their inaugural Christmas card.

We've posted it above.

"The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are delighted to share a new photograph from their Wedding Reception at Frogmore House on 19th May,” Kensington Palace captioned the image on Twitter, adding:

“The photograph, which features on Their Royal Highnesses’ Christmas card, was taken by photographer Chris Allerton."

Very pretty, right?

But is it prettier than the one also just released by Kate and William?

William and Kate Christmas Card

These parents of three just came out with their own Christmas card photograph, one that depicts Middleton and her Prince cuddled up closely with their children:

Prince George, 5, Princess Charlotte, 3, and Prince Louis, 8 months.

The holiday portrait was taken in early fall at the pair's country home in Norfolk and it marks little Louis' Christmas card debut.

You can compare it here to the 2017 version of the famous family:

Royal Christmas Card

During a walkabout late last month, Middleton revealed how her kids were getting ready for the holiday.

"The [kids] are doing well, thank you," she told fans, adding of her brood:

"Getting excited for Christmas time because they've started all their Christmas songs and Christmas trees are going up and stuff."

She didn't really address how much she supposedly hates Middleton.

In an attempt to rile up everyone associated with this reported rivalry, though, we figured we'd pit Meghan and Harry's card against William and Kate's card.

Take a close look at each above and then VOTE below:

Which couple's do you like best?

And the Winner is?

Perfect Halloween Costume

This drone shrinks to fit

Researchers at the University of Zurich and EPFL have created a robot that shrinks to fit through gaps, a feature that could make it perfect for search and rescue missions. The researchers initially created a drone that could assess man-made gaps and squeeze through in seconds using only one camera. This extra feature — a scissor-like system to shrink the drone in flight — makes it even more versatile and allows these drones to react to larger or smaller gaps in nature.

“The idea came up after we worked on quadrotor flight through narrow gaps,” said PhD candidate Davide Falanga. “The goal of our lab is to develop drones which can be in the future used in the aftermath of a disaster, as for example an earthquake, in order to enter building through small cracks or apertures in a collapsed building to look for survivors. Our previous approach required a very aggressive maneuver, therefore we looked into alternative solutions to accomplish a task as passing through a very narrow gap without having to fly at high speed. The solution we came up with is the foldable drone, a quadrotor which can change its shape to adapt to the task.”

The system measures the gap and changes its shape without outside processing, a feat that is quite exciting. All of the processing is done on board and it could be turned into an autonomous system if necessary. The team built the drone with off the shelf and 3D-printed parts.

“The main difference between conventional drones and our foldable drone is in the way the arms are connected to the body: each arm is connected through a servo motor, which can change the relative position between the main body and the arm. This allows the robot to literally fold the arms around the body, which means that potentially any morphology can be obtained. An adaptive controller is aware of the drone’s morphology and adapts to it in order to guarantee stable flight at all times, independently of the configuration,” said Falanga.

The team published a report on their findings in Robotics and Automation Letters. As IEEE notes, this is no flying drone dragon, but it is a far simpler, cooler and more effective product.

Kenneth Petty: Somehow, Nicki Minaj’s Rapist Boyfriend Keeps Getting Worse

As you may have heard, Nicki Minaj is dating Kenneth Petty, a man who has served time on rape and manslaughter convictions.

The public is baffled, fans are appalled, and an oblivious Nicki keeps posting pics with her new man like she just won the cuffing season lottery.

Kenneth Petty and Nicki Minaj

Astonishingly, it was recently reported that Nicki is planning to marry Kenneth

The only possible explanations here are that she knows something we don't; she's lost her damn mind; or her feud with Cardi B is so intense that she won't let her rival claim the title of Most Horrendous Marriage.

Kenneth was one of Nicki's first loves -- they grew up together in Queens.

Kenneth Petty Picture

And sources close to the rapper say she's convinced that he's changed.

Which is good, because based on his prison disciplinary records, dude has a lot of changing to do before he could be considered husband material for anyone.

TMZ obtained Petty's records, and it seems dude was anything but a model prisoner.

Kenneth Petty

In fact, his problems began one day after he was incarcerated, when he was disciplined for creating a disturbance.

It was all downhill from there, as Petty was written up a whopping 18 times over the course of his two bids behind bars.

Petty's most major violations include two violent conduct violations in 2010 for threats and fighting.

Kenneth Petty with Nicki Minaj

Prior to that, he also racked up another fighting violation, and 5 violations for disobeying a direct order.

One 2009 incident caused major problems for Nicki's beau:

He was cited for 9 separate violations following an altercation and wound up serving four months in solitary.

Nicki Minaj at the EMAs

After that, he was stripped of all his major privileges, including phone, recreation, and commissary.

Look, prison is a rough place; the incarceration rate in this country is outrageous, and it disproportionately affects young men of color in a way that some have described as among the world's most egregious human rights violations.

But it's not like Kenneth was knocked for selling dime bags.

Nicki Minaj in Black

Dude went up the river the first time for first degree attempted rape.

His second conviction was for manslaughter.

We just hope Nicki knows what she's getting herself into.

Chris Pratt Goes Instagram Official With Katherine Schwarzenegger On Her Birthday

Chris Pratt Instagram Official Girlfriend Katherine Schwarzenegger

Over a year since his dramatic split from Anna Faris, Chris Pratt is head-over-heels for Katherine Schwarzenegger!

This Thursday evening, the Guardians of the Galaxy actor took to Instagram to share a collage of photos and wish happy 29th birthday to his stunning girlfriend.

“Happy Birthday Chief! Your smile lights up the room. I’ve cherished our time together,” he captioned the cheeky post.

In one of the photos, Pratt, 39, is seen kissing Schwarzenegger’s cheek as she smiles happily at the camera. In another, the two pose together while wearing face masks with animal faces on them.

In every snap, the brunette beauty shows the sweet smile Pratt talks about in his post, and in a hilarious picture she is even seen laughing while clipping her boyfriend’s toe nails.

PHOTOS: Bulging Biceps! Shirtless Chris Pratt Puts His Buff Bod On Display

“Thrilled God put you in my life. Thankful for the laughs, kisses, talks, hikes, love and care,” Pratt continued.

RadarOnline.com readers know Pratt and Faris, 42, filed for divorce on December 2017, and have since been sharing custody of 6-year-old son, Jack.

The two quickly moved on with other people, and while Faris has not yet gushed about Michael Barrett, on social media, she too seems happy with her new man. Though sources tell Radar she can’t stand Schwarzenegger!

Protein involved in nematode stress response identified

When humans experience stress, their inner turmoil may not be apparent to an outside observer. But many animals deal with stressful circumstances -- overcrowded conditions, not enough food -- by completely remodeling their bodies. These stress-induced forms, whether they offer a protective covering or more camouflaged coloration, can better withstand the challenge and help the animal survive until conditions improve.

Emo Spock Joins the Crew in Debut Trailer for ‘Star Trek: Discovery’ Season 2 (VIDEO)

 

Sometimes I feel like I’m cheating myself—as a Star Trek fan—by not subscribing to CBS All Access to catch Discover. I refuse to pay for another streaming service, however, and my stupid scruples prevent me from acquiring it illegally, so for now it’s a subject on which I’m not an expert.

I know a couple of things like Anthony Rapp from Adventures in Babysitting (holds up) and Rent (doesn’t) is in it, and Doug Jones (the tall creatures in all Guillermo Del Toro movies) is playing some gleep glop alien, but that’s about it. Oh, I know they added a young, bearded Spock for the upcoming season two, because you can’t get away from everyone’s favorite half human, half Vulcan pop culture character.

I get that this is supposed to be Spock Origins or Spock Begins, but did he really need that emo beard? He looks like he’s the bassist in a Fall Out Boy tribute band called, strangely enough, Radioactive Man. Whatever, the people in charge don’t care, why should we?

Star Trek: Discovery returns for season two on January 17, which is a little over a month away. Which is a terrifying thought. Not that the show is coming back, but that mid-January is a month away. Still feels like it’s at least two months away, if not more.

Kayti Edwards: Dax Shepard CHEATED on Kristen Bell! With ME!!

Dax Shepard adn Kristen Bell have one of the most treasured marriages in Hollywood.

They're both amazing, Dax is 14 years sober, and they're amazing parents. But is Dax a cheater?

An ex of Dax came forward to accuse him of cheating on Kristen with her, and she even has photos.

Dax Shepard and Kristen Bell Picture

The Daily Mail dropped a bombshell that could threaten to shake up one of Hollywood's most beloved and enduring marriages.

Former model Kayti Edwards came forward with a whopper of a story.

She says that, in 2009, she hooked up with Dax Shepard -- while he was already dating Kristen Bell.

According to her claims, the two were exes and happened to run into one another at a party.

She says that one thing led to another.

Kayti even provided photos that she claims are evidence of their hookup.

Kayti Edwards Makes Out With Dax Shepard

According to Kayti, it was after the party that the two exes actually banged, going to a house where she was house-sitting at the time.

"We went back and made love," Kayti claims, using romantic language.

"We had sex twice and he stayed until the next morning,” she rephrases.

According to Kayti: “I didn’t know he had a girlfriend at the time."

"He didn’t seem to care," she characterizes.

(This is a more recent image of Kayti from an interview she gave about Matthew Perry)

Kayti says that the two of them dated, years before that alleged encounter, in 2005.

"He’s just a normal person, but he’s funny," Kayti says of Dax.

She continues: "I was attracted to his confidence."

In 2005, Dax would have been newly sober -- having become so in September of 2004 after many struggles.

Dax of course saw Kayti's claim, and issued a response of his own.

"Hey Daily Mail, that photo is 13 years old, not 9," Dax writes on Instagram.

He then exposes his ex for what appears to be a colorful history.

"Also," Dax says. "Kayti has sold stories to tabloids about Matthew Perry, Jack Osbourne, Kid Rock, and now me."

Wow. That's quite a list.

Also, it really takes determination for someone to admit that they boned Kid Rock.

"I look forward to her next one," Dax concludes. "Fingers crossed it's about my #1, Brad Pitt."

He finishes that message in good humor, with a smiling emoticon.

Dax Shepard and Kristen Bell at the People's Choice Awards

For the record, Dax and Kristen began dating in late 2007 -- just 11 years ago.

Though the two became engaged in 2010, they held off on getting married.

The couple waited until same-sex marriage became legal in California in 2013, in a sign of solidarity with the LGBT+ community.

After an important court ruling striking down a key element of the Defense Of Marriage Act, Kristen proposed to Dax on Twitter.

They were an item in 2009, but they were not in 2006.

Dax Shepard and Delta Bell Shepard

Speaking to The Blast, Dax took a more confrontational tone -- understandably so -- in refuting Kayti's claims.

"This woman is making up the date in order to come up with a story that she can literally sell to the tabloids," Dax accuses.

"She admits to being married, by the way, when this fictitious reconnection happened," Dax notes. "Making herself adulterous."

"There are a lot holes in this fabricated story," Dax points out.

"Where is the proof of a date of these photos?" he asks. "Who witnessed when this happened?"

"What is the name of her friend where this party took place with a photo booth?" Dax demands to know.

"Her previous actions and dealings with the press speak for themselves," he concludes. "And she should be called out for her slanderous actions."

Facebook Portal adds games and web browser amidst mediocre Amazon reviews

After receiving a flogging from privacy critics, Facebook is scrambling to make its smart display video chat screen Portal more attractive to buyers. Today Facebook is announcing the addition of a web browser, plus some of Messenger’s Instant Games like Battleship, Draw Something, Sudoku and Words With Friends. ABC News and CNN are adding content to Portal, which now also has a manual zoom mode for its auto-zooming smart camera so you can zero in on a particular thing in view. Facebook has also added new augmented reality Story Time tales, seasonal AR masks, in-call music sharing through iHeartRadio beyond Spotify and Pandora that already offer it and nickname calling so you can say “Hey Portal, call Mom.”

But the question remains who’s buying? Facebook is already discounting the 10-inch-screen Portal and 15-inch Portal+. Formerly $100 off if you buy two, Facebook is still offering $50 off just one until Christmas Eve as part of a suspiciously long Black Friday Sale. That doesn’t signal this thing is flying off the shelves. We don’t have sales figures, but Portal has a 3.4 rating on Amazon, while Portal+ has a 3.6 — both trailing the 4.2 rating of Amazon’s own Echo Show’s 2. Users are griping about the lack of Amazon Video support for Ring doorbells, not receiving calls and, of course, the privacy implications.

Personally, I’ve found Portal+ to be competent in the five weeks since launch. The big screen is great as a smart photo frame and video calls look great. But Alexa and Facebook’s own voice assistant have a tough time dividing up functionality, and sometimes I can’t get either to play a specific song on Spotify, pause or change volume or other activities my Google Home has no trouble with. Facebook said it was hoping to add Google Assistant to Portal, but there’s no progress on that front yet.

The browser will be a welcome addition, and allow Facebook to sidestep some of the issues around its thin app platform. While it recently added a Smart TV version of YouTube, now users can access lots of services without those developers having to commit to building something for Portal given its uncertain future.

The hope seems to be that mainstream users who aren’t glued to the tech press where Facebook is constantly skewered might be drawn in by these device’s flashy screens and the admittedly impressive auto-zooming camera. But to overcome the brand tax levied by all of Facebook’s privacy scandals, Portal must be near perfect. Without the native apps for popular video providers like Netflix and Hulu, consistent voice recognition and more unique features missing from competing smart displays, the fear of Facebook’s surveillance may be outweighing people’s love for shiny new gadgets.

This Battle Could Go On Forever

Josh Duggar Is Planning a Return to TV. Here’s How We Know …

For the past several months, we've been predicting that Josh Duggar is planning to return to television in the very near future.

The signs have been everywhere, and based on his family's recent social media activity, it seems the dreaded day is fast approaching.

Josh Duggar on Election Day

Josh's comeback tour began back in September, when Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar paid tribute to their disgraced son on the family's official Facebook page.

Josh and Anna were celebrating their ten-year anniversary, so it wasn't terribly surprising that his parents decided to put him front and center.

What was surprising, however, was the fact that Josh continued to make appearances on his family's social media pages long after his milestone anniversary had passed.

Josh Duggar Is Back

As you probably recall, in the wake of the Josh Duggar sex scandals of 2015, the former reality star and lobbyist completely disappeared from the public eye.

During that time, the Duggars focused on rebuilding their media empire, which forced the family to shove Josh to the margins.

However, even during that uncertain time, the Duggars repeatedly refused to commit to the idea of permanently banning Josh from their television projects.

Josh Duggar With Wife and Kids

And so, for many fans, the recent efforts to rebuild Josh's reputation have not come as much of a surprise.

At this point, the family is including him in social media posts without explanation, as though nothing ever happened.

This past weekend, Josh hammed it up in photos taken at an ugly Christmas sweater party thrown by his siblings.

Josh Duggar at Christmas

Yes, he looks happier than ever, and the pics convinced many skeptics that Josh will make his long-feared return to television on the upcoming season of Counting On.

As a result of the controversy, Anna Duggar has been reluctantly forced into the spotlight, as many of her social media followers have questioned her decision to remain with Josh.

“I love [Anna] so much, but Josh’s sins should make her look the other way and run,” one fan commented on her anniversary post.

Josh Kisses Anna

Astonishingly, others are in favor of the mother of five remaining married to an admitted child molester.

“For all the nay-sayers: why would you want a family to break up? For kids to bounce between homes?” wrote one such baffling human being.

Many Duggar fans are holding out hope that the family will come to its senses and put the brakes on Josh's comeback.

Call us cynics, but we can't help fearing the worst ...

‘F**k That Sickomode Song!’ Kanye Slams Travis Scott In Nasty Twitter War

Kanye West Slams Travis Scott Twitter Rant

Kanye West has lost it again.

This Thursday night on Twitter, the “Lift Yourself” rapper went on a seemingly-endless tirade, slamming longtime frenemy Drake, and even Travis Scott!

It all began when Kanye, 41, accused Drake, 32, of having dissed him on “SICKO MODE,” his recent collaboration with Travis, 26.

In the track, Drake raps “Lost my respect, you not a threat” allegedly referring to his ongoing feud with Kanye. He continues with “Checks over stripes, that’s what we like,” reportedly referring to his and Kanye’s respective partnerships with Nike and Adidas.

“F**k that sickomode song Family first and always,” tweeted a livid Kanye after learning of the sneaky lyrics.

“How you gone text Kriss but not speak to me,” he wrote. “How you gone be on Trav’s song coming at me. Trav should have never allowed that.”

While the feud only involved Drake at first, Kanye then slammed Travis for getting involved in their mess — and including it in his hit song.

“I used to bring Travis with me everywhere with me Im an inspiration to both him and Drake,” he continued, suggesting that he’s always been a good friend to both stars, and doesn’t deserve the hate.

“You’re mad at me for something I didn’t do,” tweeted Kanye, allegedly referring to Drake’s claim that he outed his love child. “I will never put negative energy into a song.”

RadarOnline.com readers know Kanye collaborated with Travis on a song “Watch,” this year, after he gave birth to baby Stormi Webster with Kylie Jenner.

“Trav is my family and let this met throw sneak disses at me for clout,” Kanye continued, clearly bashing Travis for siding with Drake.

PHOTOS: ‘Miserable’ Kim’s Secret Meltdown Over Kanye REVEALED!

“I hit Trav earlier today Now he just hit me More threats,” he tweeted “I have a problem with sneak disssing.”

The wild rapper continued, saying Drake threatened his life and his family when all he wanted was to have love and make music. “Leave me and my family alone bro,” he wrote.

Eventually, Kanye gave up the fight.

“I actually like sickomode but I don’t like that that is was sneak disses,” he explained, addressing his bipolar condition and admitting he just got very worked up over the drama. “All love.”

Miss USA Sarah Rose Summers is in Thailand, mocking beauty queens’ English

SU Magazine's 18th Anniversary Celebration

Just yesterday, I was watching that stupid Melania Trump interview and I thought to myself “I would actually find Melania’s accent charming if she wasn’t such a racist Deplorable.” We’re a nation of immigrants and that means a lot of people have accents, and a lot of people won’t speak perfect English. That’s an “issue” that a lot of people fight about here in America. But it takes a particular kind of Ugly American to GO TO ANOTHER COUNTRY and expect everyone you meet to speak English, and to mock them if they don’t. Which is what happened with the reigning Miss USA, Sarah Rose Summers. Summers is in Thailand for the Miss Universe pageant, and she ended up hanging out with Miss Colombia (Valeria Morales) and Miss Australia (Francesca Hung), and they all decided to go on Instagram Live to mock Miss Vietnam (H’Hen Nie) and Miss Cambodia (Rern Sinat) for their English language struggles.

Summers, 24, was captured on video discussing Miss Cambodia Rern Sinat and Miss Vietnam H’Hen Nie. In the footage, which was reportedly part of an Instagram Live video shared on Miss Colombia Valeria Morales’ account, Summers appears to mock Miss Vietnam’s English-speaking skills.

“She’s so cute and she pretends to know so much English and then you ask her a question after having a whole conversation with her and she goes — ” Summers says, nodding and smiling in a way that seemed to mimic H’Hen before laughing. “She’s adorable.”

When Morales asks her, “How?” Summers proceeds to repeat her imitation of H’Hen’s smile.

Summers, Morales and Miss Australia Francesca Hung also spoke about Miss Cambodia Rern Sinat in the video.

“Miss Cambodia is here and doesn’t speak any English,” Summers said, “and not a single person here speaks her language. Can you imagine? Francesca said that it would be very isolating and I think yes, and just confusing all the time.”

[From People]

I’m including the video below, because nothing ever gets deleted off the internet. Having watched it, I’ll say this… I would count this as a racist microaggression more than these women actively Mean Girling the hell out of Asian beauty queens. It’s obvious that Sarah Rose is really ignorant and parochial, and it’s like it never would have occurred to her that a Cambodian beauty queen or a Vietnamese beauty queen would even have a need to speak English. The fact that she’s sitting in Thailand – NOT SPEAKING THAI – and complaining about the women who don’t speak English just shows that she perfectly fits the stereotype of the ugly American abroad. Sarah Rose did post this apology on her Instagram:

@MissUniverse is an opportunity for women from around the world to learn about each other’s cultures, life experiences, and views. We all come from different backgrounds and can grow alongside one another.

In a moment where I intended to admire the courage of a few of my sisters, I said something that I now realize can be perceived as not respectful, and I apologize. My life, friendships, and career revolve around me being a compassionate and empathetic woman. I would never intend to hurt another. I am grateful for opportunities to speak with Nat, Miss Cambodia, and H’Hen, Miss Vietnam, directly about this experience. These are the moments that matter most to me.

[From Instagram]

“I said something that I now realize can be perceived as not respectful.” Try again, Becky. How about “Lordy, I sounded like an ignorant fool and I apologize for acting like the world should revolve around English-speaking blonde bitches?”

‘I Miss My Kids, Man!’ JWoww Files Restraining Order Against Ex Roger Matthews

JWoww Files Restraining Order Husband Roger Matthews

The nasty divorce war and custody battle between JWoww and Roger Mathews just took a turn for the worse.

As RadarOnline.com has learned, the Jersey Shore star filed a restraining order against her baby daddy following a heated argument inside their home. And now, Mathews, 43, can no longer see or speak to his children.

In an emotional Instagram video, Mathews tells fans that JWoww, 32, threatened to call the cops on him after a fight, so in order to take control of the narrative, he called them himself and got thrown into a cop car around 2:00 a.m.

PHOTOS: ‘Jersey Shore’ Star Deena Cortese Honors Late Dad In Heartbreaking Wedding Tribute

“This is the level my ex wife takes it to after telling my kids their dad is a piece of s**t and she’s sorry she ever had children with him,” writes Mathews in the caption. “She gets so emotional and irrational in her anger this is the level she brings it too”

Mathews adds that it is the “Saddest day of my life watching her tell my daughter ‘she is sorry she had children with your daddy.’ The truth will come out. The truth will set you free. I will never stop fighting for my kids.”

RadarOnline.com readers know JWoww dumped Mathews earlier this year — though days after the split, he told fans on social media that he would continue fighting for their marriage.

In another explosive clip, Mathews says his wife has turned daughter Meilani, 4, against him because she “cannot control her emotions” and acts irrationally in front of the children. He says it was heartbreaking to see his child hit him because he’d upset her mom.

PHOTOS: Jersey Shore Stud Muffins On The Beach

In yet another teary video taken at 7:00 A.m. this Friday, Mathews says he is lying awake on a couch missing his son, Greyson, 2. “His mother is so hate-filled towards his father that she would do something like this, he says through tears.

A wave of truth is coming.

“I’m not allowed to speak to my children, not allowed to go get clothes, step foot in the house that I’ve lived in for eight years,” he adds. “I miss my kids, man.”

Starbucks Doesn’t Know How To Spell My Name

Michelle Williams quit her Broadway show on doctor’s orders, is she ok?

Embed from Getty Images

Singer Michelle Williams is back in the headlines but this time, it’s work related – mostly. Michelle has been in the news lately because she and her sketchy-as-all-hell fiancé, Chad Johnson broke up. Before their split, Michelle spoke candidly about her depression that had been bad enough to have her entering a treatment center. Michelle had been starring in Broadway in Once On This Island but has recently announced she will be stepping down from her role as Erzulie. In the announcement made by the theater, they said she was instructed to do so on doctor’s orders.

Michelle Williams is stepping away from Broadway spotlight as she continues her journey to wellness.

The singer, 38, will be taking a leave of absence from her role as the goddess Erzulie in the Broadway production of Once On This Island.

Williams only joined the cast two weeks ago but has been advised by her doctors to step away from the Tony Award-winning show beginning Wednesday, the show announced in a statement.

“Effective immediately, Michelle T. Williams has been advised by her doctors to take a leave of absence from performing,” the statement read.

Stepping in for the former Destiny’s Child singer will be her understudy Cassondra James, who will assume the role until Dec. 26. After that, Lea Salonga will take over until the Broadway production officially closes on Jan. 6.

[From People]

I don’t want to stick my nose too far into Michelle’s business and speculate why doctors ordered her to step down. But I will say I am concerned for her. She’s been through so much this past year and it’s likely taken a huge toll on her health. However, at least she is listening to her doctors and looking after herself.

The day she announced her split from Chad, Michelle also dropped her new single, Fearless, which is doing pretty well on Spotify. The day before she did either of those things, she was promoting her reality show with Chad, Chad loves Michelle. As of yet, OWN has not cancelled the show. Since her split from Chad, the only posts to her Instagram and Twitter accounts are about her single. I hope someone is helping her run the accounts so she doesn’t have to worry about the promotion while she’s under her doctor’s orders. Mostly I just hope she’s taking care of herself and that she has a solid support network. She needs to put her health first. And I know that’s not easy to do in her profession but at least it seems like she’s trying.

2018’s Marvel And DC Movies: The Good, The Bad, And Everything We Wish We Could Forget

Kanye West tweet-ranted until Drake finally called him: ‘Mission accomplished’

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West look bundled up for the cold NYC weather

I don’t know how long Drake and Kanye West’s beef has been happening. I feel like it’s been simmering – for the most part – for much of 2018. I tend to believe Ye and Drake weren’t on the best terms previously, but the Pusha T issue really caused things to boil over. Pusha T and Kanye are frequent collaborators, and Pusha was actually promoting an album he did with Kanye (Daytona) when Pusha completely burned Drake in May. There was some conversation that Drake blamed Kanye for the whole thing with Pusha, and that Drake thought Kanye was the one to tell Pusha about his hidden child Adonis. Kanye always maintained that he wasn’t out there, gossiping about Drake’s personal sh-t, and he just wanted love and harmony. Later, when Kanye went off his meds, he did say that Drake owed him an apology for everything that went down with Pusha, and more. I still believe that there was an added layer to Drake and Kanye’s simmering beef: the rumor that Kim Kardashian and Drake were hooking up on the DL at some point.

Anyway, that’s all part of the rich backstory-tapestry. I’d honestly forgotten about the fact that Drake and Kanye were still low-key pissed at each other. Then Kanye reminded everyone yesterday, when he got a notification that Drake wanted to buy a clearance from him. Kanye posted the clearance request on Twitter and then lamented the way Drake was handling all of this:

SU Magazine's 18th Anniversary Celebration

SU Magazine's 18th Anniversary Celebration

SU Magazine's 18th Anniversary Celebration

I thought it was over then, last night around 7 pm. But Kanye just stopped to eat or something and then he got back on Twitter and kept going for hours – you can see Kanye’s tweets here. He’s mad about a lot of stuff – he claimed Drake threatened him, he says they need to show that they can talk things out like men, he’s still mad about “Sicko Mode,” which he says is a sneak-diss of Yeezys, he says he doesn’t want to physically fight Drake, and on and on.

There’s some debate about who looks better or worse here. While Kanye is STILL canceled for his MAGA bulls–t, I kind of think he…INITALLY maybe handled this particular situation the right way? I don’t know. It’s not like he just started tweeting about Drake out of the blue, apropos of nothing. Drake wanted the clearance, and it reminded Kanye of how Drake didn’t have the stones to contact him directly. That’s the undercurrent of Drake’s whole vibe these days, isn’t it? Shady, secretive, not dealing with people directly. Maybe I’m wrong. That being said, Kanye absolutely should have stopped while he was ahead and not spent hours tweeting about this sh-t.

Amber Heard: ‘I’ve done the best I could without the luxury of being picky’

Miley Cyrus calls Liam Hemsworth her ‘survival partner,’ ‘that is why you pair up’

Organizational expert Marie Kondo’s new Netflix show looks wonderful, right?


I read Marie Kondo’s book, The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up, a few years ago. It’s a bestseller, and many people have tried it and love it. However her organizing approach isn’t for me. She’s a minimalist, she believes in examining items to see if they “spark joy” and then getting rid of everything that doesn’t. As I mentioned in an Amazon post last week, I found Clutterbug last year, her latest book is Cluttered Mess to Organized Success, and she changed my life! Clutterbug helps you understand your organizational style (take this test she has) and then arrange your space according to what works for you. For instance I am a ladybug by her classification, I shove stuff in drawers and closets but my house looks clean. With her systems I’ve been able to purge and clean my stuff, but not to the level that Kondo recommends. Kondo is from Japan, they have a different aesthetic and they have less space than Americans. I can’t fold like she can, I tried watching videos of her doing it, and I just don’t feel comfortable getting rid of so much stuff. Maybe I’m just stubborn.

Anyway organizational expert Kondo has a new show coming to Netflix, called Tidying Up With Marie Kondo, where she helps everyday people organize. They released a trailer and it looks wonderful frankly. Kondo hears people’s stories and helps bring joy and organization to their spaces. I got teared up just watching the trailer, which includes a family going through downsizing and a woman who recently lost her husband. I am here for organizational shows (also baking shows despite the fact that I can’t do that either). Kondo even speaks Japanese on camera, which is so cool. I love that Netflix doesn’t think we need English-only shows or overdubbing for everything and that they’re just churning out the international content. (I stayed up so late last night watching a trashy French show, but I digress.)

Here’s more about Kondo’s show, which premieres January 1st on Netflix, just in time for resolutions!

“My mission is to spark joy in the world through tidying,” Kondo says, recalling the message of the “KonMari method” found in her hugely popular 2011 book (published in the U.S. in 2014), which instructed readers to ditch any belongings that do not “spark joy” in them.

According to a profile in the Wall Street Journal, Kondo has had a lifelong commitment to neatness. As a child, she “cleaned her siblings’ bedrooms. In grade school, she was the assigned class organizer.” She started her organizing business at 19 and ended up writing her book at the request of potential clients stuck on her extensive waiting list

[From People]

I have to admit that she comes across as caring, approachable and much different than I imagined reading her book. That could be a translation issue as her tone might not come through in the English version. I’m really looking forward to this show. I also want my girl Cassandra from Clutterbug to get a show! She is amazing. Check out her YouTube channel.

Jersey Shore Recap: Let’s Talk About Airplane Poop!

A trio of important subjects took center stage on Thursday night's Season 2 finale of Jersey Shore: Family Vacation?

1. Cancer.

2. A home invasion.

3. The final destination of poop on an airplane after one flushes it down the toilet.

We don't mean to make light of the first two topics listed above; we're just commenting here on the often random nature of Jersey Shore storylines and conversations.

Ready to see how the cast wrapped up the latest season?

Scroll down for a recap!

1. A Broken Home

A broken home
A broken INTO home, we should say, as Jen Harley called Ronnie and claimed their house in Las Vegas had been burglarized overnight. She and daughter Ariana were safe, however.

2. What? Why???

What why
"Jen's telling me that somebody broke into the house," Ronnie said during a confessional. "Basically, the guy came in through the back door, and he ransacked the house. She was laying in bed, she heard shuffling, he saw that she moved and just f-cking ran out the house."

3. For Real, Though???

This is such bs
Let's just say that Ronnie's friends had some doubts about Jen's story here.

4. What Was Taken?

Jen harley and ronnie together again
According to Harley, only her phone (which means she called Ron from someone else's phone and not from her blocked phone) and her friend's laptop.

5. We've Got a Sketchy Situation Here, Alleged The Situation

Yes befuddled is a word sitch
"This whole situation with Jen is crazy," Mike told the camera. "There is a calamity or crisis once a week, like clockwork. She was moved out of his house. Now, a day later, she's moving back in the house because of this 'home invasion.' If you ask me, it's always an inside job."

6. Think About This, Ron-Ron

Think about this ron ron
When the fellas tried to bring up to Ronnie the possibility that Harley could be lying, he refused to believe it. "She wouldn't do that with the baby, bro. If there was no baby, then I'd be like, it's probably a made-up [situation]," Ronnie argued.

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse – Complete Guide to Marvel Easter Eggs

We're tracking down every Marvel Universe Easter egg and reference in Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. Help us out!

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse - Complete Marvel Easter Egg Guide
Feature Mike Cecchini Gavin Jasper
Dec 14, 2018

This article consists of nothing but Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse spoilers. We have a spoiler-free review right here if you prefer.

Well, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse absolutely delivers everything a Spider-Man fan could possibly want. Who needs the Marvel Cinematic Universe when you've got a movie that tell such a wonderful, compelling story on its own, and one that draws so heavily purely from Spider-Man mythology, right?

And for those of you who want to dig as deep as you can on everything Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse has to offer, we give you this (mostly) complete guide to Easter eggs in the movie. If you spot something we missed, mention it in the comments, or give Mike or Gavin a shout on Twitter...and if it checks out, we'll update this and credit you!

Now, let's get swingin'...

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse Characters

While the multiverse is, of course, infinite, this movie focuses on a handful of key Spider-people.

Miles Morales

Miles Morales was created by Brian Michael Bendis and Sara Pichelli. He originally appeared in Marvel's (now defunct) Ultimate universe, as the replacement for a very dead Peter Parker. Sound familiar? He's currently part of the main Marvel Universe, though.

read more - Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse - Who is Miles Morales?

- The genetically modified spider that gives Miles Morales his powers has the #42 on it, this is straight out of his Ultimate Spider-Man comics origin, as is the stuff about Miles getting into the private school due to winning a lottery is taken from the comics.

- Miles is often seen reading a comic called True Life Tales of Spider-Man. The name and the logo recall an actual Marvel series called Untold Tales of Spider-Man, which came out during the 1990s, and told stories that happened “in between” important moments in Spidey’s early career. One of the covers is an obvious callback to Amazing Fantasy #15, the first appearance of Peter Parker.

- Names in Miles’ phone include B. Bendis and Sara Pichelli. He'd better have those names in there...they are the people who created him! The pair get another shout out later on, as when Miles accepts who he is, the comic book cover mentions Bendis/Pichelli.

Meanwhile, Miles' Dad’s phone has Peter Parker co-creator Steve Ditko on speed dial. Of course, Steve Ditko wasn't really fond of taking phone calls, but it's great to see him referenced here (and of course, Stan Lee has his traditional, but first posthumous, cameo).

- Miles wonders how two Spider-Men could exist and for a second we see a comic cover of “Two Spider-Men.” Spider-Men is the first crossover between 616 Peter and Miles.

Peter Parker

- This movie takes place about 10 years into this world’s version of Spider-Man’s career. To fill in the blanks, there are loads of visual homages to the three Sam Raimi Spider-Man movies during the scenes establishing who this world’s Spider-Man is, including the restaurant/taxi/spider-sense sequence, the famous bit where Spidey stops the subway on the elevated tracks, the upside-down kiss, the horrid dancing from Spider-Man 3, and more. Later in the movie, Spidey’s “broke my back” joke is both another Spider-Man 2 reference and a callback to Tobey Maguire’s back problems/negotiating tactics between the first two movies. There’s also a visual homage to him pulling the Staten Island Ferry together from Spider-Man: Homecoming.

- Peter Parker and Mary Jane are divorced in the older Peter’s world. This is rather surprising to see if you were following the character back in the mid-00s. Joe Quesada really did not like the idea of the two being married because he felt it made Peter too hard to relate to. He had to go through the stunt of having them sell their marriage to Mephisto (the Devil...but from space!) to create a retcon that they never got hitched. Why not just have them straight-up get divorced? Quesada claimed it would age Peter too much and would make him even harder to relate to. Meanwhile, this movie makes a 40-year old Peter Parker going through a midlife crisis as easy to relate to as any version of the character in history, but whatever.

Spider-Man Noir

- Spider-Man Noir comes from a brief line when Marvel released miniseries that reimagined their characters as grounded 1930s-1940s counterparts. For instance, X-Men Noir was about a group of grifters with special gifts (ie. Rogue’s ability to perfectly steal someone’s identity) opposing a corrupt police force. Spider-Man Noir received two miniseries and appeared to be the only hero of that line to have actual powers. His origin is rather ill-explained, where he’s bitten by what appears to be mystical spiders and hallucinates seeing a spider god.

Spider-Gwen

- Spider-Gwen made her first appearance in Edge of Spider-Verse #2, created by Jason Latour and Robbi Rodriguez. There are a lot of differences in her reality, but one of them is that Gwen Stacy was the victim of the radioactive spider bite instead of Peter Parker. The gist of her quick backstory from the movie very much lines up with the comics. This includes the fact that her boyfriend Peter turned himself into the Lizard after being broken down from constant bullying. Spider-Gwen fought the Lizard a little too hard with the offense and ended up killing him by accident.

She also plays in the Mary Janes, a band also made up of Mary Jane Watson, Betty Brant, and Glory Grant.

She'll return in an animated spinoff of her own, so don't you worry.

Spider-Ham

Peter Porker, the Spectacular Spider-Ham (typing that will never, ever get old) first appeared in a one-shot comic in 1983 called (seriously) Marvel Tails, and then went on to headline his own book. He is exactly what you expect.

For more on Peter Porker, the Spectacular Spider-Ham, well...we have his complete and weird (and completely weird) history right here for you.

Peni Parker

Peni Parker and Sp//dr first appeared in Edge of Spider-Verse #5, and they were created by Jake Wyatt and My Chemical Romance's own Gerard Way.

Believe it or not, this is only a small sampling of the Spider-Men of the Spider-Verse out there. We have a complete guide to all of them right here.

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse Comics Easter Eggs

- Throughout the movie, there are loads of great references to printed comic book storytelling, like using the captions as thought balloons, Ben-day dots for effect, sound effects on screen, and more.

read more - The Making of Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

- On a monitor when Kingpin’s scientists were turning on the particle collider during the Spider-Man vs. Green Goblin fight, there are different Earth numbers mentioned like “E-616” and “E-1610.” 616 is the designation for the "main" Marvel Comics Universe.

- Is it us, or does Mary Jane in this movie look like J. Scott Campbell art?

- The shot of Uncle Ben “dying” looks an awful lot like one of the covers of Ultimate Spider-Man: Death of Spider-Man where we see Peter and Ben walking into the afterlife together.

- The pink-haired girl from Miles’ old school might be a reference to the Ultimate Comics version of Kate Bishop, who dated Miles for a bit.

- The revelation that this Spidey is blond feels like a slight nod to the Ben Reilly era of the character. Essentially (hoo-boy) in the ‘90s Marvel had this awful idea called The Clone Saga. In it, Peter Parker retires as Spider-Man and is replaced by his clone, who, to distinguish himself from Peter, dyes his hair and takes the name Ben Reilly (Ben after his Uncle, and Reilly being Aunt May’s maiden name).

- Peter plans to take Miles under his wing, but dies. In an issue of Ultimate Spider-Man where Miles and his friends discuss how things probably would have worked out if Peter survived, Miles admits that although he never got to meet his universe’s Peter Parker, he feels that Peter would have been his mentor.

Spidey's Secret Headquarters

- In Spider-Men, 616 Peter does visit Ultimate Aunt May’s home. Although things work out in the end, her initial reaction is to attack him until Miles (who she knows) explains that he’s the real deal. Bonus! Aunt May appears to have her furniture covered in plastic. That's a nice detail for anyone who has an elderly relative living in the boroughs of NYC. It's basically standard issue.

- Pretty sure you can spot “The Rose” on the wall with the chart of the Fisk family in Spidey’s hideout.

- The infamous Spider-Mobile is on display in the late-Spider-Man’s lair. The Spider-Mobile was always a merchandise-driven creation, the irony being that Peter Parker didn't actually know how to drive. Why? Well, for starters, he lives in New York City. If you grow up here, there's little reason for you to drive. More importantly, he got his powers at 15 or 16, and the driving age in New York is 16. Why bother learning to drive when you can web swing?

- Suits in the lair include the video game costume, Iron Spider suit, stealth suit, MCU suit. The caped one is from What If v.1 #19 (he stopped the thief and remained an entertainer). One of them is Spider-Man from Exiles, coming from a world where Peter Parker wore the Carnage symbiote.

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse Villains

Now, let's talk baddies...

The Prowler

- There have been several characters to assume the identity of the Prowler. The character has been kicking around the Marvel Universe since 1969 (as Hobie Brown), before a guy named Rick Lawson took over the role. But neither of those are the guy on screen here...

It was the Ultimate Universe Prowler who was Aaron Davis, Miles Morales' uncle, and he didn't come around until Ultimate Comics: Spider-Man #1 in 2011.

Kingpin

It's kind of amazing that this is Wilson Fisk's first big screen appearance, especially given the popularity of the character both in the comics on TV. Liev Schrieber manages to deliver a different enough performance from Vincent D'Onofrio's to make it his own, though.

- Kingpin is haunted by the rejection and deaths of his wife Vanessa and son Richard. In the comics (and especially the Daredevil Netflix series), Vanessa is a lot more open to Wilson’s dark dealings. In the main comics, Richard was an adult and hated his father, though never sure whether to usurp him as a villain or betray him as a hero. In the end, he was shot dead by Vanessa.

- The closest counterpart to the movie’s depiction of Richard Fisk is in Punisher MAX, where he was an 8-year-old boy. Wilson Fisk coldly allowed him to die in a hostage situation rather than give himself up to an enemy and Vanessa forever hated him for it.

- Kingpin’s bodyguard is Tombstone, otherwise known as Lonnie Thompson Lincoln. Created by Gerry Conway and Alex Saviuk back in 1988, Tombstone is an albino with the strength and fighting skill that makes him capable of trading blows with Spider-Man. He tends to exist as a mafia figure for the most part instead of a cackling supervillain and has indeed worked for Kingpin in the comics once or twice.

Doctor Octopus

- Dr. Olivia Octavius is an original character. Or as original as you can get for being a gender-flipped Otto Octavius. That’s kind of the point of the twist is. That said, there have been at least two female versions of Doc Ock in the comics. The most famous one is Carolyn Trainer, who took the mantle back during the Clone Saga days after Kaine snapped Otto’s neck. More recently, the Web-Warriors gained an ally in Octavia Otto, a member of the Young Avengers from a world where Spider-Man is the villain.

- Dr. Octavius talks up alternate universes and describes them as “WHAT IF to Infinity,” referencing Marvel’s famous alternate history comics as well as their most famous crossover events (and live action movies).

- The version of Green Goblin seen on the screen in this movie feels very much like the Ultimate version of the character, where Norman Osborn had actually mutated himself into a hulking green beast, rather than dressing like a goblin.

- This is a different version of Scorpion than we've seen in any movie, animated series, or game. Any ideas where he's pulled from? In any case, this is Scorpion's first shot at the big time on the big screen, although there's an excellent chance he'll appear in a future live action Spidey movie, as Mac Gargan was played by Michael Mando in Spider-Man: Homecoming.

- During the sequence showing off Spidey's villains (most of whom make more substantial appearances in the movie), you can see a quick flash of Rhino at one point, but he doesn't seem to appear anywhere else in the movie.

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse Video Game References

- The shot of Peter Spider-Man crawling upside down towards the viewer looks exactly like the cover to the great PS1 game.

- Spidey does the “finger guns” like he does in the amazing PS4 video game.

Miscellaneous Spidey Stuff

- When Miles goes to his Uncle Aaron’s house, the episode of Community (“Anthropology 101”) with Donald Glover in a Spidey costume is on TV. This visual was one of the main inspirations for Miles Morales’ very creation. Glover himself has voiced Miles on Ultimate Spider-Man: Web-Warriors and played the live-action version of Aaron Davis in Spider-Man: Homecoming.

- It’s not an Easter egg, but this movie has a terrific use of Black Sheep’s “The Choice is Yours,” a guaranteed party starter whenever it drops anywhere. Later in the movie there’s an appropriately cheesy use of “St. Elmo’s Fire.”

- Billboards in Times Square include: From Dusk til Shaun (the Shaun of the Dead sequel we deserve) and John Mulaney and Nick Kroll in “Hi, Hello.” Also a cartoon called Clone College (uh-oh...don't say "clone" around Spider-Man fans) and a toy called Mr. Tomato Head.

Elsewhere in New York City you can spot signs that say “Bendis” (another nod to Brian Michael Bendis, Miles' co-creator) and “Romita Ramen” (for John Romita Sr. and Jr...both of whom have made their mark on the Spidey mythos...but especially sr.)

- The shot of Peter sitting behind the desk, up to his shoulders, is from the ‘67 cartoon and lives on in meme form. This includes the infamous “And I’m just sitting here masturbating” memes, which was specifically referenced in a Web-Warriors comic when Spider-Gwen visited that cartoon’s world.

- Miles’ Spider-Man costume Halloween mask looks exactly like the old, cheap plastic Ben Cooper mask, right down to the nose holes.

- Did you know this movie almost featured a Doctor Strange cameo? Well...it almost did! More details here!

- I couldn’t tell for sure, but a piece of art in the underground area looked an awful lot like Leon: The Professional.

- Spider-Ham’s “That’s all folks!” is...well...you know where that's from. Wait...is he even allowed to say that?

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse Post-Credits Scenes

The initial end credits include at least two references to Spider-Man ‘67 stills that became popular. One is an image of Spider-Man sitting behind a desk while the wall behind him is covered in framed photos of himself. Another is the “hay” image, where Spider-Man was laying down on a train track. Despite the intent of the animated scenes, the way he’s posing makes it look more like a sexual invite. Earth-67 is where the 1967-1970 Spider-Man cartoon takes place. The footage originates from the season one episode “Double Identity.”

Spider-Man 2099

Spider-Man 2099 is Miguel O’Hara, an Alchemax employee from the future who accidentally gave himself spider powers. Taking up the mantle of Spider-Man, he was the first of many hero reprisals from that era. He has teamed up with his past counterpart on various occasions and has taken part in his share of dimensional team-ups.

Funny enough, the movie had set up Spider-Man 2099's appearance way earlier, as Alchemax was introduced in the Spider-Man 2099 comics  as a mega-corporation that does everything from pharmaceuticals to privatizing the police force. Only recently has Marvel created a modern-day take on the company, revealing it to be Liz Allen’s Allen Company after absorbing Oscorp and Horizon Labs.

We went into much more detail about those post-credits scenes right here.

Jack Dorsey and Twitter ignored opportunity to meet with civic group on Myanmar issues

Responding to criticism from his recent trip to Myanmar, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey said he’s keen to learn about the country’s racial tension and human rights atrocities, but it has emerged that both he and Twitter’s public policy team ignored an opportunity to connect with a key civic group in the country.

A loose group of six companies in Myanmar has engaged with Facebook in a bid to help improve the situation around usage of its services in the country — often with frustrating results — and key members of that alliance, including Omidyar-backed accelerator firm Phandeeyar, contacted Dorsey via Twitter DM and emailed the company’s public policy contacts when they learned that the CEO was visiting Myanmar.

The plan was to arrange a forum to discuss the social media concerns in Myanmar to help Dorsey gain an understanding of life on the ground in one of the world’s fastest-growing internet markets.

“The Myanmar tech community was all excited, and wondering where he was going,” Jes Kaliebe Petersen, the Phandeeyar CEO, told TechCrunch in an interview. “We wondered: ‘Can we get him in a room, maybe at a public event, and talk about technology in Myanmar or social media, whatever he is happy with?'”

The DMs went unread. In a response to the email, a Twitter staff member told the group that Dorsey was visiting the country strictly on personal time with no plans for business. The Myanmar-based group responded with an offer to set up a remote, phone-based briefing for Twitter’s public policy team with the ultimate goal of getting information to Dorsey and key executives, but that email went unanswered.

When we contacted Twitter, a spokesperson initially pointed us to a tweet from Dorsey in which he said: “I had no conversations with the government or NGOs during my trip.”

However, within two hours of our inquiry, a member of Twitter’s team responded to the group’s email in an effort to restart the conversation and set up a phone meeting in January.

“We’ve been in discussions with the group prior to your outreach,” a Twitter spokesperson told TechCrunch in a subsequent email exchange.

That statement is incorrect.

Still, on the bright side, it appears that the group may get an opportunity to brief Twitter on its concerns on social media usage in the country after all.

The micro-blogging service isn’t as well-used in Myanmar as Facebook, which has some 20 million monthly users and is practically the de facto internet, but there have been concerns in Myanmar. For one thing, there was been the development of a somewhat sinister bot army in Myanmar and other parts of Southeast Asia, while it remains a key platform for influencers and thought-leaders.

“[Dorsey is] the head of a social media company and, given the massive issues here in Myanmar, I think it’s irresponsible of him to not address that,” Petersen told TechCrunch.

“Twitter isn’t as widely used as Facebook but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t have concerns happening with it,” he added. “As we’d tell Facebook or any large tech company with a prominent presence in Myanmar, it’s important to spend time on the ground like they’d do in any other market where they have a substantial presence.”

The UN has concluded that Facebook plays a “determining” role in accelerating ethnic violence in Myanmar. While Facebook has tried to address the issues, it hasn’t committed to opening an office in the country and it released a key report on the situation on the eve of the U.S. mid-term elections, a strategy that appeared designed to deflect attention from the findings. All of which suggests that it isn’t really serious about Myanmar.

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse Post-Credits Scene Explained

Worlds keep colliding in Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. So what the hell was going on in those final moments?

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse Post Credits Scene Explained
Feature Gavin Jasper
Dec 13, 2018

Spoiler sense tingling! This article contains Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse spoilers. Seriously, why would you click on this link without realizing that spoilers are going to happen?

Like nearly any superhero movie from the past few years, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse has stuff after the credits. It’s just that this one may have the best post-credits sequence of the year. At the very least, it’s on the level of the mid-credits stuff in Deadpool 2. Plus it’s just a wonderful movie in general and you should really see it.

What happens: So we get some very stylized initial credits with a psychedelic Spider-Man party followed by a sad dedication to Stan Lee and Steve Ditko. Regular credits kick in, we get to hear Spider-Man’s Christmas song in full, and finally the really good stuff.

“Meanwhile, in Nueva York...”

We’re in the point of view of a man voiced by Oscar Isaac, walking through a lair of darkness, only lit by monitors and a woman named Lyla, who appears to be a hologram. Lyla sums up the gist of the movie’s plot, but mainly the part about how the dimension-spanning technology has proven successful and the multiverse hasn’t blown up.

Lyla refers to our character as “Miguel” and he suits up in a blue and red outfit. He is Miguel O’Hara, otherwise known as Spider-Man 2099. He’s going to take this new technology for a spin and decides to start at the beginning.

He enters “Earth-67,” where he appears before a stiffly-animated 2D Spider-Man. Miguel is just as stiffly-animated and his attempt to introduce himself gets turned into a loud and angry argument filled with the two Spider-Men pointing at each other repeatedly. Nearby, a police officer and an angry J. Jonah Jameson don’t know what to make of the situation.

What it means: First off, I just want to point out that it’s been 11 years since Spider-Man 3 and despite six different movies with Spider-Man since, plus that Venom movie, the only time we’ve seen J. Jonah Jameson is a post-credits gag replaying animation from a 50-year-old cartoon. They’ll kill off Jonah’s son, but they won’t put him in a movie. That’s how untouchable JK Simmons’ performance was, I guess.

Who is Spider-Man 2099?

Anyway, Spider-Man 2099. Created by Peter David and Rick Leonardi, he first appeared in 1992 and he brought the entire Marvel 2099 line with him. In a future where superheroes were but a faded legend from the past, Miguel O’Hara worked for Alchemax, the same company that gave Miles Morales his powers. He wasn’t exactly happy with the company’s lack of morality and it led to his boss Tyler Stone forced him into loyalty by tricking him into taking an addictive drug that only Alchemax produced.

Down the line, Tyler Stone turned out to be Miguel’s father, so it’s especially messed up.

Miguel had his own DNA on file and tried to rewrite his addicted biology with his previous biology, like using a video game savestate. Something went wrong and he ended up with 50% spider DNA and his own set of spider powers, such as strength, speed, reflexes, super senses, organic webbing, talons, venomous fangs, and a special costume that allows him to glide. With those powers, he would fight against evil in Nueva York.

read more - The Making of Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

He became a superhero and in a world that worshipped Thor like he was Christ, various followers were pumped because they believed that the return of Spider-Man would act as the first step in the return of Thor.

Over the next several years, more re-imagined heroes appeared in that world from X-Men 2099, Hulk 2099, Ghost Rider 2099, Doom 2099, and the extra-ridiculous Punisher 2099. All of this in an early 90s’ take on what the future would probably be like. You know, like Lyla being his holographic Siri/Alexa.

Spider-Man 2099 lasted for 44 issues and sometime after its cancellation, as well as the cancellation of the other 2099 titles, they added closure to his story by revealing that he was indeed the herald for the return of Thor: Miguel O’Hara himself would wield Mjolnir and bring peace to the galaxy over the course of a thousand years before retiring.

Despite that closure, he’d still show up over the years. He became a member of the reality-hopping Exiles team for a bit. He became stranded in the present and fought alongside various other Spider-Men from different dimensions.

Funny thing is that Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse and its post-credits scene acts as a companion piece to the 2010 video game Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions, which seemingly inspired the comic that inspired this movie. The game had mainstream Spider-Man, Ultimate Spider-Man (still Peter Parker, albeit with a symbiote), Spider-Man Noir, and Spider-Man 2099 (voiced by Dan Gilvezan, who voiced Peter Parker back in the early 80s for Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends) teaming up to save the multiverse. In the post-credits scene, it’s Spider-Ham who gets the comedic fan-service crossover appearance.

Now the shoe’s on the other foot, I guess.

This could very well be a teaser for a sequel, but the joke of it all means it doesn’t have to be.

Earth-67 ends up being the world of the Spider-Man animated series from 1967-1970. Most notably, it takes place during the season 1 episode “Double Identity,” where an actor named Charles Cameo tries to steal priceless pieces of art via being a master of disguise. This includes dressing up as Spider-Man, which leads to the real Spider-Man confronting him. The two point at each other, yelling that the other is an imposter, before throwing down.

read more: The Many Spider-Men of the Spider-Verse

Even though Cameo has the webbing and wall-crawling abilities somehow, the real Spider-Man proves himself via his superior strength and skill.

In recent years, the still of the two Spider-Men pointing at each other has became a beloved interent meme. I mean, many screenshots from that series have become memes, but that one’s easily the most popular. The fact that this Spider-Verse scene is built on two Spider-Men interacting just makes it a better fit.

That’s not the only time one of these crossovers has referenced the Spider-Man ’67 memes. Web-Warriors, a dimensional Spider-Man team-up book, begins with a battle going on in the Spider-Man ’67 world.

Those spider-heroes lead such interesting lives...
