Google Easter egg pays tribute to the late Betty White

Betty White, the legendary Golden Girls actor and comedian, passed away on New Year’s Eve at the age of 99. Today, Jan. 17, would have marked her 100th birthday.Marking the date, fans took to social media to pay tribute to White, sharing messages and images and taking part in the #BettyWhiteChallenge to raise money for animals in honour of her advocacy work. Cincinnati Zoo named a penguin in honour of her Golden Girls character, and Monterey Bay Aquarium named a giving program after her.Google, meanwhile, had its own tribute — an Easter egg for anyone typing the actor’s name into the search bar.

Typing “Betty White” into Google prompts animated rose petals to fall from the top of the screen, before the message “Thank you for being a friend” appears at the bottom. “Thank You For Being A Friend,” recorded by Andrew Gold, is the theme song for The Golden Girls.

TikTok enrolls in 'Euphoria' High

HBO’s Euphoria is back, and with it came a slew of fashion-forward TikToks. Other notable trends this week include drawing your face to a soothing indie song and admitting something to a soft “yeah.” And why aren’t you in uniform?Euphoria, the dizzying HBO teen drama starring Zendaya, is known for its edgy make-up and outrageous fashion. These students are walking to AP U.S. History dressed like they’re going to a rave! Scratch that: None of these characters are even in APUSH (except for maybe Lexi). The way the teens in Euphoria dress for class has long been fodder for internet jokes — and now it’s the blueprint for a TikTok trend.Videos to the trend all start with someone dressed plainly while the sound of squeaky footsteps plays. Then, the audio “and why aren’t you in uniform?!” appears, and the person walks off camera before reappearing in a Euphoria-inspired outfit. These TikToks are all captioned with some variation of “when you’re leaving for the bus but forget you go to euphoria high school.” The trend is hilarious because it grounds the absurd fashion of Euphoria in the mundanity of the modern high school experience, which only heightens the unrealistic nature of the ‘fits in Euphoria. Not to mention, the idea of “euphoria high school” is funny when you consider it actually has a name. (But don’t expect anyone to remember East Highland High.)The trend is also an opportunity for TikTok users to show off fun, vibrant outfits that they may not get to wear every day. The trend is the perfect combination of humor and glorious fashion moments. Take @kaceystarz’s video for example: The creator first walks out in a boring sweatshirt and jeans before re-entering in an iconic all-pink drag look. So far, the video has amassed over 1.5 million views and accumulated

How to gift-wrap Venmo payments

Getting a gift of cash via Venmo is great — infinitely better than a gift card — but it’s hard to get appropriately excited and grateful about a row of numbers sandwiched between a rent payment and your share of last night’s pizza tab. So starting Thursday you can “wrap” your Venmo gift payments. It’s still all in the app, but instead of the usual notification of fresh funds in your account it’ll be more festive — even if it’s not your birthday or a holiday. The idea came about after Venmo noticed during the pandemic that more people (almost 60 percent of current customers) were gifting money through Venmo with notes that said things like, “thanks” or “just because,” as a Venmo rep explained in an email. Clearly, Venmo payments were becoming little expressions of love, so gift-wrapping was born.

Notice the new gift-wrap icon?

There are eight different gift-wrap designs with animations to amp up your cute and clever GIF- and emoji-filled note. To send a gift-wrapped Venmo payment you still click the same “Pay or Request” button on the home screen and proceed as usual with a recipient, note, and amount. But before sending it off, you’ll notice a new gift-wrap icon next to the “Pay” button. It’ll be a free feature when it rolls out to American users Thursday.Click that and scroll through the wrapping options (there are currently some designs for the upcoming Lunar New Year) and pick one. You’ll see a preview of the
