You soon won’t need a card to withdraw cash at this shady bank’s ATMs

TwitterFacebook

Plastic is soooo yesterday. 

Wells Fargo, being the hippest bank to allegedly open more than 2 million fraudulent accounts in its customers’ names, knows this. 

And so, as of March 27, the San Francisco-based company is giving its account holders a way to access their money at 13,000 Wells Fargo ATMs across the U.S. without the use of a physical ATM card.

As long as they have a smartphone, that is. 

Reuters reports that instead of the old fashioned insert-a-card-into-the-machine routine, customers can use the Wells Fargo app to generate an eight-digit code. That code, plus a customer’s PIN number, will allow the withdraw of cash.  Read more…

This app is absolutely exploding right now and it’s all because of Snapchat

TwitterFacebook

Quick: if you had to pick one app that had the-best-year-ever in 2016 what would you pick? Pokémon Go? Super Mario Run? Instagram? 

How about Bitmoji?

That’s right, the Snapchat-owned app for making customizable emoji is, by at least one measure, besting all the competition. The two-and-a-half-year-old app has seen explosive growth over the last year to become one of the fastest growing apps in the U.S, according to a new report from comScore.

Fueled by Snapchat’s user base, the app is growing faster than Venmo, Tinder, Uber and Lyft, according to the report, which comes almost exactly a year after it was (unofficially) announced Snap was acquiring Bitmoji maker BitStrips. Read more…

This resistance group is sending Trump notes on toilet paper

TwitterFacebook

If Trump toilet paper isn’t enough for you, sending the new president a pertinent message on TP and other bathroom items might do the trick.

A group of activist friends based out of New York City frustrated with the results of November’s election are facilitating a sh*tshow of sorts straight to Donald Trump’s mailbox at the White House.

If you write a message on toilet paper, a pad or a tampon, the group will mail it to D.C. as part of their “Million Mile Message” campaign. For $10, it’s act of resistance that’s a bit different to sending a postcard or letter.

Hugh Grant dances to Drake in ‘Love Actually’ reunion

TwitterFacebook

Love it or loathe it, Love Actually is the film that refuses to die. 

For whatever reason it’s burrowed into our collective consciousness on both sides of the Atlantic, and when news of a 10-minute sequel was announced recently the internet quietly melted down with anticipation.

On Friday, after hours of teasing during the BBC’s annual Red Nose Day event, the short clip finally aired. Hugh Grant, Keira Knightly, Colin Firth and the most of the rest returned for the skit, which Richard Curtis said was to check in and “see what everyone is now up to.” Read more…

Don’t fall for this Siri ‘challenge’ from your terrible Twitter friends

TwitterFacebook

Please, everyone: don’t ever, EVER just blindly follow directions from randos you follow on Twitter.

Certain groups on the social network (read: teens) have tweeted this month to encourage followers with iPhones to give Siri a simple numerical command, “108,” and wait to see what happens next. 

It’s presented as yet another mindless Siri trick, but it’s much more serious than that. Instead of just telling a stupid joke or, as one person claimed, unlocking a mini-Biebs show, Siri will initiate a call to the nearest Emergency Services. If you’re not ready for it, you might not be able to cancel the call.  Read more…

Trumpcare might be gone but the internet is memeing it to death just in case

TwitterFacebook

House Speaker Paul Ryan, as you may know, has frothed at the mouth over passing a bill to repeal and/or replace Obamacare for as long as much of the American public can remember. 

Republicans failed to muster enough unity for a vote on that dream on Friday — the second such failure in as many days — and as you may know, the internet is where failed dreams go to be memed.

I’ll let said memes do the rest of the talking. 

I’m just a bill, 🎵
Yes, I’m only a bill🎵
and I’m sittin’ here on-
OH MY GODnoOO0MAKE IT STOP!!!!! pic.twitter.com/bHIwD2LZYx

Pete Souza joins chorus gloating over Trumpcare failure with epic Instagram

TwitterFacebook

The schadenfreude online when Trumpcare collapsed for a second time was deafening. However, amid all the resurfaced Trump tweets and Art of the Deal jokes one troll stood out once again.

Pete Souza, Obama’s official White House photographer, added another Instagram post to his mammoth shade collection against Trump after the news broke Friday.

This time, Souza shared a photo of Obama and Mike Pence from 2010 — and the caption was devastating.

“Before voting on the Affordable Care Act in 2010, President Obama met with many members of Congress on both side of the aisle over the course of many months,” he wrote. “This picture was taken at the end of a multiple hours-long meeting with the entire Republican House caucus in which he responded to dozens of questions and critiques. It was carried live on cable TV.” Read more…
