Have you seen Aladdin's trailer yet? 

This week, Disney dropped the full trailer for Aladdin's live-action adaptation and everyone was psyched.

Facebook, Instagram, Gmail and more experienced major outage

Facebook malfunction

Last 13 and 14 March, various sites and social networking platforms like Facebook, Instagram, Gmail, and more experienced a major outage. Users were unable to upload posts, receive messages, and update their profiles, often landing on error pages or having sudden app shutdowns. These sites claim that the outage is unprecedented and the cause is still unknown. The connection between the multi-platform malfunction is also claimed to be coincidental. A similar incident occurred in 2016 that caused errors on sites such as Reddit, Twitter, and Spotify, which was later connected to a botnet mass hack. Thankfully, no such occurrence was reported and the sites went back to their usual state midday of the 14th. 

A Kendall x Kylie makeup collab is on its way

Ever since Kylie Jenner launched her eponymous makeup brand, she has collaborated with most of her family in launching various collections. She even did a dedicated release for her daughter, Stormi Webster, which is a success just like the others. And just a couple of weeks ago, we were given the inevitable news of her taking over Mark Zuckerberg as the youngest "self-made" billionaire according to Forbes. Now, it was announced that a collaboration with her sister Kendall (who was named one of the highest paid models for two years now) is also on the way and fans are excited. Not only has this been highly requested since Kylie opened her brand three years ago, but it was also expected since they launched their joint venture in fashion, 'Kendall + Kylie,' a while back.
