Christmas Family Quiz


 Share

Recommended Posts

I host a regular quiz every Thursday evening - been doing so for 15 years, usually in-person but thanks to the pandemic we decided to move it online.  It's taught me so much, how to use OBS, how to light properly, ways to use Zoom and so on. It's pretty raucus, very much a case of banter and questions rather than anything overly serious - it can get a bit daft and borderline rude at times, but we have fun.

 

With us now being in the run-up to a somewhat awkward Christmas, I also hosted a more family-centric Christmas quiz this weekend.

 

The rounds included:

 

  • Round 1 – Name the movie
  • Round 2 – Name the original artist
  • Round 3 – Music
  • Round 4 – Name the artist & title
  • Round 5 – Name the advert
  • Round 6 – Food & Drink
  • Round 7 – What’s the missing word
  • Round 8 – Music
  • Round 9 – Name the celebrity
  • Round 10 – Name the artists mixed in
  • Round 11 – Television
  • Round 12 – Name the artist & title

 

Should you want to do something similar with your family, friends or colleagues – feel free to download this and use as you see fit.  It's just a way I can do something for people to keep them from focusing on what's maybe getting them down.

Merry Christmas and please take care of those you love, and at least show human decency to those you don't.

      Microsoft has been sending out subtly concealed $10 gift cards via emailed newsletters
      by Hamza Jawad

      If you tend to ignore newsletter emails from Microsoft or any other company for that matter, you might want to reconsider your stance following the emergence of rather interesting news. First pointed out by a Reddit user, it has been discovered that the Redmond giant has been sending out hidden $10 gift cards through its promotional emails commemorating the holiday season.

      Apparently, users who clicked on the trees shown in a screenshot of the email were redirected to a separate website that would then provide them with a free $10 gift card. However, don't start sifting through your spam folder just yet. As has been confirmed by a number of people in the comments section of the original post, the offer has seemingly expired a few hours ago. Clicking on the concealed link now will only lead you to a webpage that states that the "limited offer is no longer available". Images posted by multiple users have also confirmed that the free gift cards were only available to people in the U.S. or Puerto Rico.

      That's not all, however. Rather interestingly, this email is only one of three that have been received by users in the past few weeks. As is indicated by the fine print displayed underneath the offer expiration message, it looks as though similar emails were sent out on November 27 and December 5, aside from the most recent one emailed a couple of days ago. The first of the aforementioned emails was sent commemorating Black Friday, and it contained the picture of a blue squirrel, clicking upon which would grant you $10 in the form of a gift card. Therefore, it seems that a certain pattern is being followed here.

      It goes without saying that the offers in the previous two emails have expired as well. Regardless, the message "More surprises are on the way..." clearly indicates that Microsoft has more, perhaps similar, surprises planned for the holiday season. Don't forget to subscribe to promotional offers from Microsoft in case you are interested in receiving such emails in the future.

      StumbleUpon closing after 16 years, accounts can be migrated to Mix
      by Paul Hill



      StumbleUpon co-founder, Garrett Camp, has announced that the project is coming to an end 16 and half years after its launch in 2001. Camp is now recommending that StumbleUpon users migrate their accounts over to another of his projects, Mix.com, which he says incorporates the lessons learned from StumbleUpon “to take content discovery to the next level.”

      Writing in a Medium post, Camp said:

      Since its launch, StumbleUpon has been used by around 40 million people according to Camp. The service, which is currently ranked 2,129th by Alexa.com, allowed users to share favourite web pages, submit ratings and reviews, and get recommendations for additional content - it helped push the social aspects of the web before the likes of Twitter and Facebook took a grip of the social media sector.

      If you still use StumbleUpon, you’ve got until the end of next month to migrate your account over to Mix.

      Snap said to be working on a new version of Spectacles
      by Michael Allison



      Snap will reportedly be launching a sequel to its smart eyewear Spectacles later this year, according to Cheddar.

      The 2.0 version of Snap's Spectacles will be focused on quality and mostly feature performance improvements, added water resistance, and new colours.

      The company also plans to launch a third version of the product. This hat-trick iteration is allegedly being tested with a new design - aluminium being one of the material options possibly present - as well as a dual camera setup for 3D depth effects.

      The third product version will reportedly see it moving more upmarket, with a leather case, a built-in GPS, and a cost of more than double the current $130 price being part of the package. To that end, partnerships with companies like Luxottica and Warby Parker are said to be in the works. This is because Snap wants to position itself more as an eyewear company.

      Snap is planning to invest in AR capabilities for future Spectacles, with supposed integration between the smart glasses and Snapchat's pre-existing AR Bitmoji avatars and lenses.



      The firm's first iteration of smart glasses didn't exactly take the world by storm, as reports of "hundreds of thousands" of unsold first-generation Spectacles were making the rounds three months after the product's debut. Snap data also learned that people who actually purchased the devices would stop using them within a few weeks.

      It's unclear why Snap thinks a new iteration of spectacles could solve, especially since the project is reportedly beset by missed deadlines.

      The new Spectacles are allegedly on the table to launch in the third quarter of 2018, but a delay could still happen if Snap misses its target again.

      Microsoft bestows new Xbox One on generous boy that gave his up
      by John Keefer



      A young Ohio boy whose family was once homeless decided to give up his thoughts of an Xbox One for Christmas and instead use the money to buy blankets for the less fortunate. Microsoft saw his story and decided the boy didn't have to give up his dream.

      Mikah Frye, 9, had been driving around with his grandmother and noticed the people shivering on the street. He had an Xbox One on his Christmas list, but instead suggested the money be used to buy more than 60 blankets for the homeless. Microsoft employees were so touched by the gesture that they concocted a plan to invite the boy to a local mall in his town of Beachwood, Ohio.

      "When they called and told me I was just instantly crying on the phone and I couldn't believe it," said Mikah's grandmother Terry Brant told Fox 8 News in Cleveland about the call from Microsoft. "What's harder was not telling him."

      When he arrived, he was greeted by the employees and Santa, who then gave him a new Xbox One along with two bags of presents. The move brought tears of joy to the youngster.

      As for the homeless, each blanket had a personal message from Mikah, according to USA Today: “Today, I live in my own house, and someday you will too. Your friend Mikah."

      Happy holidays indeed.
