Spoilers for the finale of Game of Thrones follow.

Westeros apparently has quite the financially forward-thinking Master of Coin on its new small council!

On Game of Thrones, actor Jerome Flynn played mercenary-turned-nobleman Ser Bronn of the Blackwater, whose only true north was gettin` that money. It seems that the IRL Flynn is similarly interested in the value of a coin — even if it`s a do-goodery, digital one.

Flynn recently joined the advisory board of a new cryptocurrency called VeganCoin, according to CoinDesk. It`s the token of an Israeli project, VeganNation, that seeks to validate the origin of products and create a sustainable, vegan marketplace with its own currency.  Read more...

how to make calls on ipad

  • You can use the Continuity features in iOS to make and receive phone calls on your iPad via your iPhone.
  • Setting up the ability to make calls on your iPad is easy and takes just a few taps on both your iPhone and iPad.
  • You can also send and receive calls on apps like Skype, Google Voice, and Facebook Messenger using your iPad.
  • Visit Business Insider`s homepage for more stories.

Way back in 2014, when Apple released iOS 8, the iPhone and iPad got a feature called Continuity which lets the two devices work almost as one — you can copy and paste wirelessly between the two, as well as continue text message and other activities seamlessly when switching between phone and tablet.

Perhaps the coolest and most convenient Continuity feature, though, is the ability to send and receive phone calls on the iPad. The only requirements: Your phone and tablet need to be connected to the same Wi-Fi network and signed in with the same Apple ID.

How to turn on the ability to make calls on your iPad  

You`ll need to throw a few switches in Settings on both the iPhone and iPad to make this work.

1. On your iPhone, open the Settings app.

2. Tap "Phone."

3. Tap "Calls on Other Devices."

4. Turn this feature on by swiping the button to the right, and then enable the feature for your iPad by swiping the button below in the "Allow Calls On" section. If you have multiple iOS devices, you can enable calling on as many of them as you like.

5. On your iPad, open the Settings app.

6. Tap "FaceTime."

7. On the right, tap "Calls from iPhone" and turn that feature on by swiping the button to the right.

How to send and receive calls on your iPad

Now you`re all set up — when a call comes in on your iPhone, it will also ring on the iPad. You can accept the call on either device.

You can also place calls from the iPad even though there`s no dialer app. To make a call:

1. Open the Contacts app.

2. Find the contact whom you want to call.

3. Tap the "Call" button at the top of the screen or tap a phone number in the contact`s details.

If you`re calling someone who has an iPhone, you can also place a FaceTime call from the iPad, taking advantage of the tablet`s larger screen for the video.

How to make a call from the iPad without an iPhone

You don`t have to use your iPhone to make calls with your iPad. There are several popular voice and video messaging apps you can use on your iPad.

Skype

Skype allows you to place both audio and video calls to other Skype users for free. In addition, you can call someone`s landline or mobile phone for a fee. Calling within the US costs 2.3 cents per minute, and you can buy "Skype credits" in increments as low as 5, or sign up for a recurring Skype subscription.  To get started, install the Skype app for the iPad.

Google Voice

You can also make calls using the Google Voice app. Google Voice is a phone service offered by Google that gives you an alternate phone number you can use instead of your usual iPhone number — great if you want to set up a free business line, for example. Google Voice has several useful features, including the ability to ring all your phones when a call comes in and to forward all of your other phone numbers to Google Voice, turning it into a single way for others to reach you. You can read more about Google Voice and how to use it in our article, "How to set up and use Google Voice on your computer or mobile device."

Facebook Messenger

Also, don`t forget that you can make calls using the Facebook Messenger app. In any chat, you will find a phone and video icon to the right of the person you are chatting with. Tap either icon to start a call — voice or video — via Wi-Fi.

Hello,

Welcome to your weekly Advertising and Media Insider newsletter, where we catch you up all the big stories we worked on this past week.

The direct-to-consumer boom was a big theme in our reporting. It`s become conventional wisdom that for these born-on-Facebook companies to get to the next level, they`ll have to buy television, with its ability to introduce products to a new, mass audience. This week I surveyed how the TV giants like NBCUniversal and CBS are trying to change their hidebound practices to sell advertising to these companies.

Here`s what I learned:

  • TV companies are eager to portray themselves as well positioned to capture DTC dollars, with dedicated sales teams and pitches around addressable TV, shoppable ads, and branded content.
  • Yet TV still is a big hurdle for many DTC companies that are used to low-cost, performance-based advertising.
  • Today, DTCs represent a scant 3% of TV advertising, but it`s only poised to grow, having doubled over the past two years.

In another big story of the week, privacy continues to be top of mind for advertisers as Google and Facebook crack down on third-party ad targeting on their platforms.

Lauren Johnson broke down Google`s moves against advertisers` use of third-party cookies. Meanwhile, Facebook is preparing advertisers for a "clear history" tool that will limit use of its most powerful ad targeting tool. Our takeaways:

  • The big question is how popular the tools will be, given growing concerns about online privacy.
  • Ad experts think the Facebook move could have a bigger impact on advertisers because it would limit their ability to target people based on all their browsing data that Facebook collects.
  • These moves could strengthen the incumbent titans Facebook, Google, and Amazon and make it easier for them to take credit for advertising`s effectiveness.

Tanya Dua talked to Pepsi`s marketing chief about how the soda brand is surviving the war on sugary drinks.

Americans are ditching fizzy, sugary sodas more than ever before. Pepsi`s marketing head is adopting a challenger mindset to survive.

Here`s what he said:

  • Pepsi`s diversifying its portfolio to products like Bubly and Lifewtr.
  • It`s trying to be disruptive like Burger King and Domino`s.
  • After its Kendall Jenner ad fiasco of 2017, Pepsi is working more closely with its agencies.

Here`s what to expect in 5G from the `Big 4` carriers as Verizon, AT&T, and others battle for dominance
5G has been more hype than reality so far, but it`s set to gather steam in the year ahead. Abby Jackson rounded up the changes to expect from the wireless carriers:

  • Verizon says it will have launched 5G coverage in 30 US cities by the end of the year. AT&T says it will have nationwide 5G service in early 2020. Sprint is rolling out in nine cities by June.
  • But experts say AT&T`s and Verizon`s plans to use higher-frequency spectrum is expensive and can be hard to access inside buildings.
  • 5G`s promise of bringing cheaper products to consumers is still several years off.

HQ Trivia Hosts Season 4

HQ Trivia, the live game show app that offers players real cash prizes, is introducing a new way to give players a better chance of taking home money earlier in the game. 

Starting Tuesday, players will be able to win cash prizes for answering specific questions correctly. If players manage to score a cash bonus, they can choose to drop out and keep their winnings, or continue playing for a chance at a bigger prize.

Previously, only players who answered every question correctly got a share of the prize money.

HQ has also found a replacement for the recently departed Scott Rogowsky: On Tuesday, HQ will welcome Matt Richards as its full-time host. Richards, an actor and comedian, was previously a part-time host for the show.

The first round of HQ Trivia Season 4 starts Tuesday night at 9 p.m., and as always, players can join in using the app on their Android or iOS smartphone. HQ will survey players to decide on a theme for the game`s questions, which will let them focus on topics they prefer.

HQ said that Richards will occasionally share hosting duties with Sharon Carpenter, a British journalist, host, and producer. Comedian Anna Roisman will host HQ Words, a separate game with similarities to "Wheel of Fortune." And actress Lauren Gambino will host HQ Sports during the new season.

HQ recently bid farewell to longtime host Scott Rogowsky, who left to host the baseball program "ChangeUp" on the streaming service DAZN.

  • Amazon is testing a pilot program in five fulfillment centers around the country where its employees can gamify their workload.
  • A game with retro graphics works together with Amazon`s facility technology to track employees` work, comparing it with other employees`.
  • Those with a high score get bragging rights and "swag bucks," which can be turned in for Amazon-branded gear and clothing.
  • The gamification could both result in higher rates of productivity and make work tasks less monotonous.

Amazon is trying to make the life of its warehouse workers a bit less rote.

It is currently piloting a program in five fulfillment centers around the country where its employees have the option to gamify their workload. 

At employee workstations, games with names like "MissionRacer," "PicksInSpace," "Dragon Duel," and "CastleCrafter" appear on a small screen with retro-looking graphics and keep track of employees` work. The Washington Post was first to report on the existence of the program, which an Amazon representative confirmed with Business Insider. 

Progress is then compared against others`, either on the individual or group level. Winners get bragging rights as well as "Swag Bucks," which employees can redeem for Amazon-branded apparel and gear.

Using the gamified program is completely optional, and while there are incentives like virtual badges, they are not directly tied to pay or advancement.

The pilot began at one warehouse in 2017 before being expanded to the current five.

The gamification plays a dual role of making unskilled or monotonous labor more easily borne, as well as providing a way for Amazon to more naturally encourage employees to be more productive. How productive Amazon`s warehouses can be is something being carefully watched by investors, customers, and everyone in between as Amazon transitions its two-day Prime shipping guarantee to one day.

Amazon warehouse workers are also already tracked for their productivity, with some describing the "brutal" reality of the job to Business Insider earlier this year. Amazon says it`s proud of its "great working conditions, wages and benefits, and career opportunities."

  • Google`s Android operating system (OS) may be open source, but as we have been reminded this week, the tech giant has complete control over the apps and services that make its platform valuable.

  • Google`s control over Android, coupled with the fact that it`s the only viable operating system for smartphone manufacturers today, has left Huawei in a seemingly impossible situation moving forward. 
  • Visit Business Insider`s homepage for more stories.

Google`s Android operating system (OS) may be open source, but as we have been reminded this week, the tech giant has complete control over the apps and services that make its platform so valuable. 

Google`s firm grip on the Android ecosystem was on full display Sunday when Reuters reported the company would revoke its Android license from the Chinese manufacturing-giant, Huawei. The decision was reportedly made to comply with President Trump`s order barring trade with certain blacklisted Chinese companies. 

In one-fell-swoop, Google was able to restrict new Huawei devices in markets around the world from accessing its Google Play store and Google Play Services. That means, as long as Trump`s ban remains, Huawei manufactured devices will be allowed to run the open source version of Android`s OS, but they won`t benefit from system-level integration with popular apps and services — like Chrome, Gmail, or YouTube — or from regular upgrades and security updates, not to mention the loss of access to Google`s tremendous app store. 

Google did say existing Huawei users would still be able to access the Google Play app store and its built-in malware protection. On Tuesday, following the US government`s decision to grant Huawei a 90-day reprieve from the blacklist, Google said it would follow suit as well. 

"Keeping phones up to date and secure is in everyone`s best interests and this temporary license allows us to continue to provide software updates and security patches to existing models for the next 90 days," a Google spokesman told Business Insider in a statement. 

Despite the grace period, the impending blow could be catastrophic for Huawei`s smartphone business — which, as of earlier this month, was the second-largest in the world. Without access to an app store or services like Google`s Search or Maps, the options are grim. 

The company said back in March that the company was developing its own operating system, should sanctions be placed against them by the US. And on Tuesday, Bloomberg reported that Huawei has been in talks with European carriers and developers, pitching them on optimizing apps for the manufacturing giant`s native platform.  

Read more: Huawei developed a `plan B` operating system for smartphones in case it was banned by the US government from using Google products. Here`s what we know about it so far.

But the likelihood of Huawei attracting developers to build applications for its OS — especially apps that are on the level that Google provides today — is unlikely, according to Carolina Milanesi, Principal Analyst at Creative Strategies. 

"You can build a different OS... but what are consumers going to do for search, for maps, for YouTube?" Milanesi told Business Insider in a recent interview. "All of these things have alternatives, but why would I do that? It`s not like Huawei`s phones are that amazing that I would forego all the services I`ve been using for years." 

There are actually two different Androids out there

The situation in which Huawei finds itself shines a light on Google`s incredible power in the smartphone industry. 

Though it`s widely known that the tech giant`s Android platform has captured a mind-blowing share of the OS market — more than 85% of smartphones worldwide run on Android according to a recent IDC report — there are actually two different Androids: There`s the official, Google version of Android that the company regularly updates (the latest version, Android Q, is currently in beta testing) and there`s Android Open Source Project (or, AOSP). 

Android Open Source is freely available for anyone to take, tinker with, and customize as they see fit. 

But if you want the version of Android that comes with all the latest security patches, integrated access to cutting-edge Google services like Assistant, and other benefits, you need to obtain a license from Google. (Though, it is important to note that the flow of Android updates is largely controlled by phone manufacturers and wireless carriers, who generally decide which devices get which patches, and when.)

"There`s a phonetics issue here," Forrester analyst Frank Gillett told Business Insider. "There`s open-source, as in everyone can see the code and can contribute. And then there`s the — can you use it regardless of what Google thinks? And the answer is, no. You need permission from Google to use this stuff." 

Because of Android`s open-sourced nature, smartphones and tablets running the AOSP version can leave users with mixed, and sometimes sub-par, experiences. 

Packaging its services and restricting access to the official version, Gillett said, is Google`s way of creating more consistent interactions across the Android ecosystem. The introduction of Google Play Services in 2012 for example, allowed Google to instill organization and standards on one part of the Android world, while also ensuring that Google maintained tremendous power over the platform.

"From a developers perspective, [Android] is open source," Milanesi said. "But Google puts a lot of extra work on it to optimize for its services in a way that benefits them." 

Little to no options for Huawei

In China today — where trade restrictions in the US are already in place — Huawei phones are running on a customized version of AOSP. Under the hood, it`s all Android, but it has a proprietary look and feel that the company developed in-house. 

Users of those phones in China have some access to apps, like Gmail, but the devices lack other valuable services, like managed updates and security upgrades. For those users, little will change because of Google`s break with Huawei.

But on a global market, where Huawei sells a huge amount of its products, Huawei phones run the Google version of Android, along with all the Google app consumers want, like Search, Maps, and Youtube. Those global consumers aren`t going to accept a stripped-down experience, said Ben Bajarin, Principal Analyst at Creative Strategies. 

huawei global market share

"[Huawei is] going to have to do something if this doesn`t get resolved," Bajarin told Business Insider in a recent interview. "They`re obviously not going to not sell phones. But they`re not going to have any success with a skinned version of Android." 

Should Huawei move forward with reports that it`s going to create an Android alternative, history is not on its side. Samsung most recently tried its hand at creating its own OS — called Tizen — but the phones and its Linux-based platform haven`t caught on. In a review of Samsung`s Tizen, Ars Technica wrote that "it felt like a hollow copy of Android without any apps." 

The lack of viable options for Huawei to find (or build) an alternative OS have some questioning if Google`s Android should be considered a monopoly over the smartphone industry. If Google can cripple the second largest handset manufacturer with one, simple decision, than those concerns seem justified. 

Google has been subject to the recent "techlash," as politicians like Senator Elizabeth Warren have called for it to break off parts of its business that dominate industries, like Search. Regulating or breaking up Android, however, was not mentioned by Warren. 

Perhaps this week`s events will put increased pressure on Google to loosen its control over Android, or force other operating systems to ramp up their reach. In the end, though, President`s Trump blacklisting of Huawei could just be a bargaining chip in his broader trade wars with China. By next week, the order in the smartphone world may be restored. 

If not, things are about to get interesting.

Huawei Matebook

Microsoft removed Huawei laptops from the Microsoft online store last weekend in a likely response to the US government blacklisting Huawei

Existing stock of Huawei laptops are still sold in Microsoft`s physical stores, according to The Verge.

Microsoft hasn`t made an official statement regarding its relationship with Huawei. Business Insider has asked Microsoft for comment, but the company didn`t immediately reply. Other outlets have also requested for comment to no avail. 

Last week, the US Commerce Department added Huawei to its "entity list," which means that any companies wishing to sell or transfer technology to Huawei must obtain government permission. Microsoft and its products, including its Windows operating system, are included in those regulations. 

Preventing Microsoft from licensing its software and other products to Huawei would essentially ruin Huawei`s laptop business, as all of Huawei`s laptops run on the Windows operating system. 

Read more: Why Huawei smartphones are so popular all over the world — except in the US, where stores don`t sell them.

Google is also restricting Huawei`s access to the Google Play Store, the primary app store for the Android mobile operating system, although Google put its Android suspension on hold Tuesday. Without the Google Play Store, Huawei smartphones will inevitably be significantly less appealing to the global market, and it puts the company`s position as the second- or third-biggest smartphone maker in the world in serious jeopardy. 

Huawei could develop its own computer operating system, as it`s doing for its smartphones.

Still, even if Huawei develops its own operating systems for computers and mobile devices, consumers won`t get access to the apps they`re used to. Without the apps they want, consumers aren`t likely to buy Huawei devices.

Separate apps need to be developed for individual operating systems, and it`s unlikely that many popular app makers will make their apps available for Huawei`s own mobile operating system. US-based app makers, for one, likely wouldn`t be allowed to do business with Huawei under the terms of the US sanctions against the company. 

Huawei devices running the company`s own operating systems might be a solution in China where apps from companies like Google are already banned, but the rest of the world probably isn`t going to want Huawei devices without popular apps people already know and love. 

Richard Yu, Huawei`s head of consumer electronics, summed it up best when he told The Information that the company is going through "really a very tough time."

Can you picture a scenario in which Oreo cookies are discussed at a House Financial Services Committee hearing?

No? That`s OK. No need to imagine hypotheticals, because as it turns out, on Tuesday HUD Secretary Ben Carson name-dropped the popular Nabisco sandwich cookie on the stand. He accidentally mixed Oreo cookies up with REO, a common real estate term. Casual!

Apple iPad 3

  • When your iPad is running low on space, it might run more slowly. You might also encounter problems like the inability to install new apps.
  • You can free up space on an iPad by deleting unwanted or unused apps and their data in the Settings app.
  • You can also reclaim space by deleting unwanted music files, clearing the browser cache, and removing old email messages.
  • Visit Business Insider`s homepage for more stories.

Even though the latest iPad models come with a generous amount of storage space, upgrading to higher capacities can be quite expensive.

If you have an iPad with a more modest amount of room for apps and data — or if you`ve simply filled yours to the brim regardless — there are a variety of ways you can reclaim space on your tablet.

Here`s everything you need to know.

SEE ALSO: How to undock, move, and split the keyboard on an iPad, to type however works best for you

See how much storage space your iPad has available

How much space do you actually have? Your first stop should be to see how much room you need to make.

1. Open the Settings app.

2. Tap "General," and then tap "iPad Storage."

3. After a few moments, your iPad will display a visual representation of how much space you have left, and which apps are using the most memory. This gives you a quick and easy way to see what apps you can delete to make the biggest difference to your storage situation.



Delete the apps and data that can save you the most room

Under the graph of your iPad`s storage space, you`ll see a list of every app on the device, listed in order from largest — taking up the most space — to smallest.

The numbers displayed for each app include both the app itself and any data files the app is using. For example, the Music app might be near the top of the list, because while the app itself is lightweight, the music files it stores tend to take up a relatively large amount of space. You might also see your video apps near the top, because videos are large.

For details on any app, tap it. On the app`s details page, you can see how much space it`s taking up and have the option to delete the app and all of its data, or just delete the app and leave the data behind.

  • Tap "Delete App" to remove everything — app and data. This recovers the most space possible, and is good if you need to reclaim a lot of space in a hurry. Unfortunately, you will lose your data in the process, though.
  • Tap "Offload App" to delete the app from the iPad, but leave the data behind. If you later reinstall the app, the data will still be on the iPad and you can carry on as if nothing happened. This is a good option to choose if you only need to reclaim some space temporarily and plan to reinstall the app later — and the app is large but the data doesn`t take up a lot of room. You won`t see much benefit from offloading a music or video app and leaving the files on the iPad.


Delete unwanted music from your iPad

If you have a lot of music files on your iPad, deleting some or all of them can save you a lot of space.

  1. Open the Settings app.
  2. Tap "General," and then tap "iPad Storage."
  3. Find the Music app in the list and tap it.

You have a few options:

  • Delete an entire artist. Swipe left on any artists that you want to remove and tap "Delete."
  • Delete specific albums or songs. Tap an artist to see a list of all of that artist`s albums. Swipe left and tap "Delete," or tap on an album to delete specific songs in the same way.
  • Delete everything. Swipe "All Songs" to the left and then tap "Delete."


Clear your iPad’s Safari’s cache

Safari`s browser cache could be taking up a lot of space on your iPad; all those temporary internet files add up over time. If choose to clear the cache, you will get some storage space back, but you`ll also be logged out of any websites you are signed into, and all your cookies will be deleted — so using Safari will be like using a new computer.

To clear your cache, see our article "How to clear the cache on your iPad to make it run faster."



Delete old emails from your iPad

You might also be able to save some space on your iPad by deleting some email. Emails usually don`t take up a lot of space, though if you have mail with large attachments or embedded photos, that can net you a fair bit of space. To see how to delete all of your email at once — or all the email in specific folders at once — see our article "How to delete all the email on an iPad."

iPad Pro

  • You can customize the keyboard on your iPad by changing where it appears on screen by long-pressing the Minimize Keyboard button.
  • You can also split the keyboard to either side of the screen so it`s easier to type when holding the iPad like a phone.
  • These keyboard tricks work on all iPad models except the iPad Pro.
  • Visit Business Insider`s homepage for more stories.

You don`t need to accept the tyranny of the keyboard. Apple gives you a lot of control over where and how the keyboard appears on the iPad screen, so if you aren`t taking advantage of that, you are missing on an important way to make your iPad fit your personal preferences.

One caveat: These tricks don`t work on either the 11-inch or 12.9-inch iPad Pro models. If you have any other model, though, feel free to move the keyboard around.

How to move the keyboard on your iPad

You can undock the keyboard, which is usually locked at the bottom of the screen, and put it somewhere else, such as the middle or at the top of the screen.

1. Open an app that uses the keyboard and make the keyboard appear. For example, you could open the Mail app and create a blank email. Tap in the blank message to display the keyboard.  

2. Tap and hold the Minimize Keyboard button, which is the one in the lower right corner of the keyboard.

3. When the menu appears, slide your finger up to "Undock." The keyboard will slide up into the middle of the screen.

4. If you want to move the keyboard to a different spot, lightly tap the Minimize Keyboard button again and then immediately drag the keyboard up or down to where you`d like to put it.

How to split the keyboard on your iPad

Not many people realize that you can actually split the keyboard in two — the keyboard will break in half and hug either side of the screen, making it easier to type with two hands while holding the iPad as if it were an oversized phone.

1. Open the keyboard by using an app that makes the keyboard appear and tap in a blank field.

2. Tap and hold the Minimize Keyboard button in the lower right corner of the keyboard.

3. When the menu appears, slide your finger up to "Split."

how to move ipad keyboard 2

4. You can move a split keyboard, too. Lightly tap the Minimize Keyboard button and immediately drag the keyboard up or down to where you`d like to put it.

How to return the keyboard to the bottom of the screen

Anything you do to the keyboard can be undone.

1. With the keyboard on screen, tap and hold the Minimize Keyboard button in the lower right corner of the keyboard.

2. If you want to undo the split keyboard, slide your finger up to "Merge."

3. If you want to move the keyboard back to the bottom of the screen, slide up to "Dock" or "Dock and Merge."

Tesla has reportedly hired Adam Koszary, the man responsible for the "absolute unit" meme, as its new social media manager.

Koszary, who used to work as the program manager for the Museum of English Rural Life, is known for tweeting a photo of a large ram from the museum`s account in April 2018. The caption: "Look at this absolute unit." 

A lot of people did look at that absolute unit, and thus a genuinely good meme was born.

But nothing gold can stay. After a full calendar year in the "wholesome" category, the meme was ruined last month when Tesla founder and CEO Elon Musk saw it in a tweet from the MIT Technology Review, then decided he liked it. He even changed his Twitter avatar to the sheep (an Exmoor Horned aged ram) and his bio to "absolūt unit." (Both have since been removed.) In response, the museum changed its avi to a photo of Musk. It was a whole thing, but at least Elon wasn`t getting in trouble with the SEC for it. Read more...

avengers endgame

  • "Avengers: Endgame" is the second highest grossing movie in the US, behind "Star Wars: The Force Awakens."
  • But after adjusting for inflation, 21 movies are ahead of "Endgame" at the domestic box office, including "The Exorcist" and "Jaws."
  • Visit Business Insider`s homepage for more stories.

"Avengers: Endgame" broke plenty of records on its way to being one of the biggest movies of all time. But it will likely fall short of a couple major ones.

"Endgame" passed "Avatar" over the weekend to become the second highest grossing movie in the US of all time, behind only "Star Wars: The Force Awakens." "Endgame" has now made 771 million in the US, but it is unlikely to surpass "The Force Awakens," which made 936 million.

And after adjusting for inflation, "Endgame" isn`t even in the top 20 biggest movies in the US — yet. By the end of its theatrical run, it will probably inch up a few spots on that adjusted list. But for now, 21 movies are ahead of it when adjusting domestic grosses for ticket-price inflation.

"Endgame" is also the second-biggest movie of all time worldwide, behind James Cameron`s "Avatar." "Endgame" has grossed 2.6 billion globally, while "Avatar" grossed 2.8 billion. It remains to be seen whether "Endgame" can catch up or if it will top out before then.

But after adjusting for inflation, it would be nearly impossible. It`s tricky to calculate worldwide box-office inflation, but a rough estimate, based on this inflation calculator, puts "Avatar" around 3.3 billion worldwide.

Below are the 21 movies ahead of "Avengers: Endgame" at the US box office after adjusting for inflation, based on figures from Box Office Mojo:

Ice-T

  • Ice-T said he almost shot an Amazon delivery driver because the worker wasn`t wearing a uniform.
  • "Message To Amazon: Now that you have regular people making your home deliveries.. Maybe they should wear a Vest with AMAZON DELIVERY on it," Ice-T tweeted. "I almost shot a MF creeping up to my crib last night.... Just sayin."
  • An Amazon executive tweeted in response: "Just sayin…thanks for the suggestion. We MF`ing love you and our drivers. Lots of innovations coming on this and many that already exist to help you track your package and delivery on a map. Thanks for being a customer."
  • Visit Business Insider`s homepage for more stories.

Rapper Ice-T said Tuesday that he almost shot an Amazon delivery driver because the worker wasn`t wearing a uniform.

He shared the episode on Twitter and said Amazon should require its employees to wear vests identifying themselves as Amazon workers.  

"Message To Amazon: Now that you have regular people making your home deliveries.. Maybe they should wear a Vest with AMAZON DELIVERY on it," Ice-T, whose real name is Tracy Lauren Marrow, tweeted. "I almost shot a MF creeping up to my crib last night.... Just sayin."

Message To Amazon: Now that you have regular people making your home deliveries.. Maybe they should wear a Vest with AMAZON DELIVERY on it..... I almost shot a MF creeping up to my crib last night.... Just sayin.

No. They don’t wear ANY uniform. Just regular people workin.. I ain’t mad at them. Just sayin. That shit ain’t safe.. https://t.co/ISa4Ksex36

— ICE T (@FINALLEVEL) May 21, 2019

Another Twitter user asked whether the worker was wearing a uniform.

Ice-T responded: "No. They don`t wear ANY uniform. Just regular people workin... I ain`t mad at them. Just sayin. That shit ain`t safe.." 

Dave Clark, Amazon`s senior vice president of worldwide operations, responded to Ice-T directly after Business Insider reached out to Amazon for a comment on the rapper`s tweet. 

"Just sayin…thanks for the suggestion," Clark tweeted. "We MF`ing love you and our drivers. Lots of innovations coming on this and many that already exist to help you track your package and delivery on a map. Thanks for being a customer."

The tracking feature Clark referenced is Amazon Map Tracking, which notifies customers when their drivers are within 10 stops of their address.

Amazon is rapidly growing its delivery workforce as it races to build a last-mile logistics system comparable to major carriers including UPS, FedEx, and USPS.

Unlike major carriers, however, many Amazon delivery drivers work without Amazon-branded uniforms or any sort of signage on their vehicles. These can include Amazon Flex drivers, who are independent contractors, as well as drivers employed by third-party courier companies that Amazon calls delivery service partners. 

More drivers are donning Amazon uniforms lately, however, after the company last year started offering special deals to its delivery service partners on branded uniforms and vans. Some Amazon delivery stations provide Flex drivers with yellow safety vests.

At the same time, Amazon recently sued the Town of Braintree, Massachusetts, over a requirement that Amazon brand its delivery vans as part of a zoning proposal for a new warehouse, the Boston Globe reports

You have enough annoyances in your life, spotty WiFi shouldn’t be one of them. Mesh WiFi systems have changed the way internet access is delivered by having multiple devices communicate throughout your home for fuller coverage. These systems replace the need for traditional routers and reduce blackout areas.

Eero is a top brand in Mesh WiFi systems (though it was recently bought by Amazon, which ignited some controversy). The Amazon buyout made millionaires even richer, but you can get a tiny taste of that feeling because Eero WiFi systems are on sale for 20% off at Amazon.

Warning: The following post contains spoilers for the finale of Game of Thrones

It`s been more than 24 hours since the Game of Thrones series finale aired on HBO, so according to an unwritten U.S. law, the American people may now openly discuss spoilers on social media.

Good thing! Because dedicated GOT fans, Elizabeth Warren and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, had a lot of thoughts they wanted to get off of their chests.

On Tuesday, Warren shared a video of her and AOC discussing the highly-anticipated finale, and turns out the episode majorly let them down.

Alex Stamos

Mark Zuckerberg should step aside for a new CEO at Facebook, Alex Stamos, the company`s former chief security officer, said on Tuesday, according to CNBC.

The move would curtail Zuckerberg`s power and would allow him to focus on what he likes best — developing the company`s products, Stamos said at the Collision Conference in Toronto, CNBC reported. It would also be a sign that he`s serious about changing the culture at Facebook, he said.

"There`s a legit argument that he has too much power," Stamos said, according to CNBC. "He needs to give up some of that power. If I was him, I would go hire a new CEO for the company."

Facebook and Zuckerberg have been under fire for much of the last three years, first for allowing the social networking company`s service to be used to spread Russian misinformation and propaganda during the 2016 US presidential election campaign and then for a series of privacy and security mishaps last year, including the Cambridge Analytica fiasco.

  • Your iPad`s Mail app doesn`t give you an obvious way to delete all the email in a folder, but it`s easy to do with just a few taps.
  • Apple provides a workaround to move all your email at once by selecting a message, holding the Move button, and then deselecting the email.
  • If you organize email into multiple folders, repeat this process for each folder.
  • Visit Business Insider`s homepage for more stories.

Email is an utterly pervasive part of our life on the internet. Everyone uses the internet, and odds are that you juggle multiple email accounts on your mobile devices — one of personal messages, one for work, and possibly more. With so much email in your life, it`s likely that you occasionally need to delete all the email on your iPad at once.

Unfortunately, Apple doesn`t give you a "delete everything" button. There isn`t even a one-tap way to select all your email. That`s okay, though — there`s a simple workaround that you can use to do just that.  

Unfortunately, even this workaround has its limitations. You can`t select all the email on your iPad at once unless you keep everything in your inbox. If you tend to file email into different folders to keep it better organized, you`ll need to delete email one folder at a time. 

How to delete all the email in a folder on your iPad

1. Open the Mail app.

2. Tap on the folder that you want to empty, such as the inbox or any other folder on your device.

3. At the top of the folder, tap "Edit." (If the mailboxes pane is visible, don`t accidentally tap "Edit" in that.)

Delete 1

4. Tap the first message in the folder to select it.

5. Tap and hold "Move" at the bottom of the screen.

Delete 2

6. Without lifting your finger off "Move," tap the selected message again — this will deselect it. Then lift your finger off "Move."

7. The view should now change to show all the messages in the folder selected. If this takes a moment to appear, don`t worry — if you have a lot of email, this could be a slow process.

8. Tap the folder into which you want to move the emails — in this case, the Trash.

Delete 3

If you change your mind, just tap "Cancel" or close the Mail app.

Warning: The following post contains spoilers for the finale of Game of Thrones

Game of Thrones may have come to an underwhelming end, but the memes keep on giving. The film boys are out, and they have takes.

While not all fans were pumped with how the show ended, it has always been visually stunning, aside from a few wayward beverages. From the incredibly detailed costumes to the shots of sweeping landscapes, we can at least agree on one thing: Game of Thrones is beautiful. But one cinephile took to Twitter to emphasize just how amazing the one scene in the finale was. 

Fresh off her murderous rampage after destroying the city she tried to liberate, Daenerys turns to face her army of Unsullied and Dothraki soldiers. As she walks toward her force, her dragon opens his wings and takes flight, and the queen appears to have dragon wings sprouting from her back, too.  Read more...

apple macbook pro 8 core

Apple`s newest MacBook Pro laptops, announced Tuesday, are more powerful than ever. But they don`t come cheap. 

While the 13-inch MacBook Pros were given faster quad-core processors — those start at 1,799 — the 15-inch models can now be customized with beefy eight-core processors from Intel, and that`s the news Apple really wants to emphasize: these are its "fastest Mac notebooks ever."

The cheapest eight-core MacBook Pro costs 2,799, but if you really want to go all-in on the new MacBook Pro and max-out every option possible, you`re going to end up shelling out over 6,500.

Maxing out the new MacBook Pro means you`re getting Intel`s eight-core i9 chip (2.4 GHz with Turbo Boost up to 5.0 GHz), 32 GB of RAM, a Radeon Pro Vega 20 graphics chip, and a whopping 4 terabytes of solid-state storage. That 4 TB SSD is actually where a big chunk of the cost comes from, even though it`s way cheaper to just buy external storage.

Keep in mind: This cost doesn`t include AppleCare Plus for the Mac, which costs 379. That covers tech support from Apple, but more importantly, it covers three years of accidental damage. Considering your laptop is a mobile device, you could drop it, or it could get spilled on — in those cases, you`ll be happy you had Apple`s insurance.

That means, your maxed-out 15-inch MacBook Pro will cost 6,928 — just under 7,000 — before taxes.

While most of the changes to these newest laptops are under the hood, Apple also says it has added an improved keyboard that doesn`t experience as many issues as its previous MacBook keyboards. Apple issued an apology in late March to those customers that have had malfunctioning MacBook keyboards, a problem that stemmed from Apple`s repeated changes to its butterfly keyboard design that debuted with the 12-inch MacBook from 2015.

  • UK Prime Minister Theresa May has revealed details of her "new Brexit deal," which includes concessions intended to appease Britain's opposition Labour Party, and is almost certain to be her final attempt to get the troubled agreement across the line.

  • Noon in the Yemen. A sullen hour with the sun at its scorching zenith, the entire country is tense, on the verge of a national itch. When matters of war, and near-famine, fade to irrelevance.
