Apple's press conference today announced the iPhone 6 (spoilers: It has a curved bezel and more powerful technology and a better camera), the iPhone 6 Plus (spoilers: It's the same as what we just said but with the formfactor of a larger Android phone) and the Apple Watch. Details about the watch are relatively slim. We know it will interact with other Apple devices, have apps, use vibration to alert you of notifications and do nifty things like "tug" you in the direction of a pre-planned route you've mapped out.

But really, we know the killer app is just taping your existing phone to your arm.

Texan officer Rob Douglas is currently on paid leave as his department investigates the incident. Political opinions aside, a gentle reminder that Facebook is STILL a terrible place for public figures to mouth off. That's what anonymous Youtube comments sections are for, duh.

"DashCon aims to be the largest gathering of Tumblr users to date, concentrating on the particulars of this stand out social media site. DashCon will be a place where Tumblr users can express common site wide interests, in both fashion, art, science, and in the world of geekery. Specifically, the side of Tumblr we have garnered interest from has been the geekery side. This side comprises mostly of people who religiously follow various television shows, movie series, and book series. Notable groups within this 'geekery' side would be those who follow BBC's Sherlock, CWs Supernatural, and JK Rowling's Harry Potter. In addition to bringing together these groups, we are also very interested in promoting and helping with two common issues found within Tumblr users, mainly, depression and anxiety. We wish to provide informational programming about healthy ways to deal with these conditions"

The perpetually predatory and lyrically questionable Robin Thicke attempted to gain buzz for his new single Paula (totally not a song about trying to force himself back into a dead relationship, BTW) by asking Twitter to send him questions via the #AskThicke hashtag. Unsurprisingly, people used the hashtag to lob any and all number of pot shots at the pop crooner. Like these:



But really, let's get to the heart of the matter:

"'Yo' is a single-tap zero character communication tool. Yo is everything and anything, it all depends on you, the recipient and the time of the Yo," according to the app store description.

Developed by San Francisco-based Life Before Us, LLC, the app's creators describe it as "the simplest & most efficient communication tool in the world."

And it is really as simple as it sounds.

Download it, choose the friends you want to send your "Yo" greeting to, and they get a push notification on their phone and that's it. Seriously.
