The Wednesday before Thanksgiving is often called the nation's busiest travel day of the year, and it surely feels that way sometimes. But it's probably not entirely true.
A U.S. Transportation Department study based on 2001 figures found that when cars are taken into account — along with planes, trains and buses — Thanksgiving Day itself is actually a heavier travel day.
The Wednesday before Thanksgiving didn't even make the top 10 busiest airline travel days of 2013, the Transportation Security Administration found.
The Sunday after Thanksgiving was No. 1, with 2.2 million airline passengers. The Friday before Memorial Day was next on the list, at 2.1 million. Read more...More about Travel, Thanksgiving, Lifestyle, Travel Leisure, and Thanksgiving Travel
A video released on Wednesday sheds some light on the death of 12-year old Tamir Rice, who was shot by Cleveland police officers on Saturday.
Officers showed up at a playground on Saturday after a 911 call warning that someone was waving a "probably fake" gun. That someone was Rice. The gun was indeed fake — but police officials maintain that the officers asked Rice to drop the gun three times before shooting
Police say that when Rice was told to raise his hands three times, he reached into his waistband for what appeared to be a firearm. The firearm was actually an airsoft gun — which shoots small plastic pellets — that did not have an orange safety indicator at the end of the barrel.

News broke last week that Yahoo would replace Google as the default search engine on Firefox browsers. Now another — more powerful — company might also be ditching Google.
Apple's contract with Google is almost up, and in 2015 the Cupertino tech giant will be free to nix another connection with perhaps it greatest competitor in favor of another option, according to The Information
Yahoo and Microsoft are already vying for the tech giant's attention in hopes of replacing Google, the report said. This isn't exactly a surprise: Stories circulated earlier this year that Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer wanted "very badly" for Apple to abandon its use of Google Read more...More about Yahoo, Google, Apple, Ipad, and Tech
This article is part of DBA, a new series on Mashable about running a business that features insights from leaders in entrepreneurship, venture capital and management.
Incubators were once a niche enterprise — in 1980, there were really only a dozen or so in the entire United States.
Now there are thousands— not just in Silicon Valley, but all over the world. Despite their rapid rise in popularity, incubating is still fairly risky business. By some estimates, the success rate is no better than the companies that they are nurturing — around 10%.Venture Capital, Small Business, Startups, Dba, and Business

President Obama managed to get in a few digs at his critics during the annual White House Turkey Pardon on Wednesday, joking that some would say the president gave 'amnesty' to the pardoned birds.
With a smirk on his face and a chuckle in his voice, Obama made reference to his recent executive action on immigration, which was widely criticized by Republicans.
"I'm here to announce what I am sure will be the most talked about executive action this month," said Obama. "Today I am taking an action fully within my legal authority, the same kind of actions taken by Republican and Democratic presidents before me ... I know some will call this amnesty."
It was the end of a long holiday party — one of those off-the-record media affairs of the kind that got Uber into hot water last week — and all I wanted was to get home. My fingers itched to fire up the Uber app, and it was made worse when I passed a middle-aged group of women in overcoats on a street corner pointing at a screen, anxiously awaiting their Uber
But when you write a widely shared op-ed saying you're going to boycott Uber until there's a change in upper management, there's an obligation to walk the walk (or ride the ride or ... well, you know what I mean). I ran through the reasons again: An Uber executive talked of spending $1 million to investigate critical journalists' private lives. His boss called it "lacking humanity," but refused to even mention disciplinary action Read more...More about Uber, Tech, Apps Software, and Lyft
Forget about Movember, this man used the opportunity to coin Meow-vember.
For one hairy month, men all over the globe put down their razors to support men's health organizations. Some men opt for full beards while others style them into whimsical designs, depending on their personal style (and their ability to grow facial hair).
Not only is Movember about raising awareness, it's also a competition to see who can grow the best beard. Participant Niall O'Sullivan has all the other Mo-bros beat with his well-cultivated, cat-shaped mustache that reaches all the way down to this chest Read more...More about Reddit, Cats, Movember, Watercooler, and Pics
Republic Wireless, the budget carrier that offers full-data plans for as low as $25 a month, will begin offering the second-generation Moto X next month for $399, without a contract.
The company currently sells the original Moto X for $299, the Moto G for $149 and the Moto E for $99 — also sans contract. The new Moto X typically sells for $99 with a two-year contract from AT&T or Verizon or for $499 unlocked, so the Republic plan saves you $100. The average U.S. monthly phone bill among the top four carriers is around $138, according to Cowan & CoMarketing, Business, and Republic Wireless
Twitter will soon start keeping tabs on the apps you download
An app update, slated to roll out to iOS users Wednesday and Android users in the next week, will add a setting that allows the social network to keep track of the apps you download, the company announced Wednesday.

The goal, Twitter says, is to provide users with a "more tailored experience." By tracking the apps people are downloading, the company can better gauge users' interests and surface better suggestions of new accounts to follow and, most importantly, more relevant ads.
The feature, which Twitter is calling "app graph," will also be used to personalize the content that appears in users' timeline from accounts they don't follow. The social network confirmed in August users would begin seeing tweets and favorites from accounts they don't follow in their timeline. It wasn't clear at the time exactly how Twitter planned to make those changes but the company says app graph will help inform those additions.

James Cameron has one word to describe the next three Avatar sequels: "bitchin'."
The director told Empire magazine in an interview that he's hard at work on scripts for three sequels to Avatar, the most successful movie in history (unadjusted for inflation).
Cameron, whose credits also include Aliens and Titanic, declined in the interview to share plot details following the end of first movie, in which (spoiler alert if you're one of the several hundred people who haven't seen it yet) the native Na'vi expel the corporate evildoers back to Earth.

In the midst of a community rattled by violence, a library has become the symbol of resilience.
While local schools have been forced to shut their doors and businesses have been boarded up in Ferguson, Missouri, the Ferguson Municipal Public Library has stayed open, offering support for a community on edge.
"We are a public library, we serve the whole public. Every human being in Ferguson is welcome to come in those doors and we will help them however we can," library director Scott Bonner told Mashable.
Just before St. Louis County Prosecutor Bob McCulloch made the announcement Monday night that Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson would not be indicted in the shooting death of 18-year-old Michael Brown, the public library vowed to keep its doors opened.

In the early morning of July 23, 1967, rioting broke out in Detroit, Michigan. Police had raided an unlicensed bar and detained 82 African-American people. Onlookers retaliated by looting a nearby store, and the situation escalated
The ensuing violence, looting and arson lasted for five days and led to 1,189 injuries, 7,200 arrests, 2,000 ruined buildings and 43 deaths
The Detroit police force was overwhelmed. Officers made so many arrests that they had to hold detainees in makeshift jails. Many of those arrested were among the estimated 100,000 spectators watching the 10,000 rioters.
On Monday July 24, at the height of the riot, 231 incidents were reported every hour. Shortly before midnight that day, President Johnson deployed federal troops — even tanks — in attempt to restore order Read more...More about Crime, Features, History, Police, and Violence
GoPros are already often used with drones to capture unique videos and perspectives. Naturally, GoPro is cutting the middle man and trying its hand at developing its own drones.
The company, known for its high-durability action cameras, is putting together a line of multi-rotor helicopters that carry high-definition cameras, according to a report from The Wall Street Journal. The price tag will be between $500 and $1,000

Due to drones' current popularity, consumers have some pretty cheap options to play around with. DJI's Phantom Drone, for example, retails at about $579, and the even cheaper Parrot MiniDrones sell for as cheap as $99. But GoPro's expertise in action cameras could be a game changer for the market. Read more...More about Tech, Gadgets, Action Camera, and Action Cam
We talked digital with couple Piper Kerman and Larry Smith, who are both appearing at the upcoming Mashable Media Summit on December 5, from 2:10 - 2:40 p.m. Kerman has been lauded for the success of her memoir Orange is the New Black, which is now a hit series on Netflix. Smith has found success as the founder and editor of SMITH Magazine, and he’s also known for his Six-Word Memoir project, which is now in its eighth year.
Q: How has digital impacted storytelling for you?
A: Larry: I loved to work in print in the late ‘90s and early 2000s. I had an internal mission to help people tell stories and an external love for the personal story. I was always the guy deeply involved in tech culture. I edited Tom Wolfe’s personal stories. Sometimes I edited essays for unknown writers. Sometimes I wrote my own – it’s just what moved me the most. It wouldn’t have been possible to do this without digital. Digital means everyone has simple tools to tell stories. Video images on our phones is magic. We’d like to do more with video and audio - it’s simplicity Read more...
