Twitch Streamer's Christmas Dinner Ruined By Mouse | Game Rant – GameRant

Published

 on


Christmas time allows more popular Twitch streamers to take time off to spend with family. Some smaller streamers instead take the opportunity to spend the holiday on stream, connecting with viewers on a more intimate level. For Twitch streamer Hollycannabis, this stream was no different from her usual Just Chatting streams.

Hollycannabis is a streamer who, in addition to featuring in the Just Chatting category, also occasionally streams Dead by Daylight and Overwatch. When not gaming, Holly regularly does cosplays for her chatters and most recently streamed her transformation into The Grinch for Christmas.

For this stream, Holly settled on a chill showcase featuring her cooking skills and was preparing to remove a tray from the oven when a mouse sprung from a kitchen drawer, landing in the oven. Moments later, when Holly checked the oven and drawer underneath, the rodent was nowhere to be found.

Several minutes after the initial encounter, Holly investigated the oven drawer again, utilizing a pair of tongs to sift around inside. The mouse, hiding under a baking tray, sent the streamer into terror as it went running for cover. Shortly after, a distressed Holly looked into the camera as she exclaimed: “Guys I’m f***ing terrified. What do I do?”

Hours later Holly, exasperated, streamed an update going into more detail about the planning and aftermath of her wholesome Christmas dinner, which began at 2:30 AM that morning with preparing gingerbread cookies. By the time of the incident, the streamer had cooked an entire feast, concluding with baking the cookies along with a ham. Though Holly managed to catch and contain the mouse, the streamer admitted that the rodent escaped. As a result, she has opted to live with a friend, stating that she “had to throw the house away.”

It’s sad to see that Holly’s hard work and dedication was ruined by an untimely pest. With 2020 being a bane for everyone to deal with, it sucks to have it further disrupted by something we can’t control. On the other hand, Holly’s attempt to peacefully relocate the mouse is one of many good examples set by Twitch streamers recently.

Other streamers have had varying experiences while streaming during the holiday season. Popular battle royale streamer Tfue had a Minecraft stream interrupted by a police officer, who requested that the streamer come out with his hands up. Thankfully the situation was resolved without injury, though later, a donator believed to be the “swatter” teased the streamer with a message: “get swatted.” On a lighter note, fellow Twitch streamer Pokimane received an interesting gift in the form of a “boyfriend resume” during a short Christmas unboxing stream. Ultimately, she decided to pass on the potential boyfriend due to him having zero wins in Fall Guys.

Holly’s experience also serves as a lighter change of pace from recent news of Twitch’s stream of controversial bans and policies. Hopefully, Holly can channel the viral fame from this moment into opportunities in the future.

EBay to sell South Korean unit for about $3.6 billion to Shinsegae, Naver

Published

 on

EBay will sell its South Korean business to retailer Shinsegae Group and e-commerce firm Naver for about 4 trillion won ($3.6 billion), local newspapers reported on Wednesday.

EBay Korea is the country’s third-largest e-commerce firm with market share of about 12.8% in 2020, according to Euromonitor. It operates the platforms Gmarket, Auction and G9.

Shinsegae, Naver and eBay Korea declined to comment.

Lotte Shopping had also been in the running, the Korea Economic Daily and other newspapers said, citing unnamed investment banking sources.

South Korea represents the world’s fourth largest e-commerce market. Driven by the coronavirus pandemic, e-commerce has soared to account for 35.8% of the retail market in 2020 compared with 28.6% in 2019, according to Euromonitor data.

Shinsegae and Naver formed a retail and e-commerce partnership in March by taking stakes worth 250 billion won in each other’s affiliates.

Canada launches long-awaited auction of 5G spectrum

Published

 on

Canada is set to begin a hotly anticipated auction of the mobile telecommunications bandwidth necessary for 5G rollout, one that was delayed more than a year by the pandemic.

The 3,500 MHz is a spectrum companies need to provide 5G, which requires more bandwidth to expand internet capabilities.The auction, initially scheduled for June 2020, is expected to take several weeks with Canadian government selling off 1,504 licenses in 172 service areas.

Smaller operators are going into the auction complaining that recent regulatory rulings have further tilted the scales in the favour of the country’s three biggest telecoms companies – BCE, Telus and Rogers Communications Inc – which together control around 90% of the market as a share of revenue.

Canadian mobile and internet consumers, meanwhile, have complained for years that their bills are among the world’s steepest. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s Liberal government has threatened to take action if the providers did not cut bills by 25%.

The last auction of the 600 MHz spectrum raised C$3.5 billion ($2.87 billion) for the government.

The companies have defended themselves, saying the prices they charge are falling.

Some 23 bidders including regional players such as Cogeco and Quebec’s Videotron are participating in the process. Shaw Communications did not apply to participate due to a $16 billion takeover bid from Rogers. Lawmakers and analysts have warned that market concentration will intensify if that acquisition proceeds.

In May, after Canada‘s telecoms regulator issued a ruling largely in favour of the big three on pricing for smaller companies’ access to broadband networks, internet service provider TekSavvy Inc withdrew from the auction, citing the decision.

Some experts say the government has been trying to level the playing field with its decision to set aside a proportion of spectrum in certain areas for smaller companies.

Gregory Taylor, a spectrum expert and associate professor at the University of Calgary, said he was pleased the government was auctioning off smaller geographic areas of coverage.

In previous auctions where the license covered whole provinces, “small providers could not participate because they could not hope to cover the range that was required in the license,” Taylor said.

Smaller geographic areas mean they have a better chance of fulfilling the requirements for the license, such as providing service to 90% of the population within five years of the issuance date.

The auction has no scheduled end date, although the federal ministry in charge of the spectrum auction has said winners would be announced within five days of bidding completion.
