Beme Wants to Kill Selfies and Self-Consciousness in Social Sharing

Beme Wants to Kill Selfies and Self-Consciousness in Social Sharing YouTube personality Casey Neistat wants to change the way people share their lives on social media.

Videos shared through Beme can only be viewed once and are then deleted forever. The interface is also stupidly simple and easy to use repeatedly throughout your days. But what separates Beme from its competitors is how moments are captured. Instead of having to stare at your phone to frame shots, or pointing your...

Tattoo Photography Tips

Tattoo Photography Tips Tattoos fade overtime.

Drones Keep Firefighters From Saving Burning Cars in California Wildfire A wildfire tore through Southern California’s Cajon Pass yesterday, crossing a freeway and engulfing a number of cars in its path. Now authorities are saying that firefighters could have done more to save cars and homes… were it not for multiple drones getting in the way of firefighting operations.
