Please tell us this is some sort of sick and perverse joke; or at least that younger generations aren't this far lost in the throes of a technology-addled era?
Now you can polish your pearl while playing Candy Crush.
Well, you could do that before—but not with one device!
IZIVIBE announced today that the company has created a phone case and mobile app that doubles as a personal vibrator.
The phone case is made from 100-percent medical-grade silicone and has seven different vibration settings, the company's website says.
And couple can play together through a mobile app on iPhone and Apple Watch.
We are truly living in the future.
Just be sure to listen to this when breaking out your new phone case.
This is not the way to promote world peace.
Some poor, poor guy over at Gawker had his life's dreams put on hold when the Pope came to town. And he is surely not alone.
With the Pope's parade into America came enormous traffic blockages that put the kibosh on iPhone 6S deliveries. As the writer says:
The monstrous traffic congestion caused by the arrival of Pope Francis is expected to be so bad that UPS and Apple are already warning customers against the worst: missing the promised Friday arrival date of our new aluminum and glass idols. I received this email yesterday, and renounced my faith in the Catholic Church:
We know the Pope spreads an anti-capitalism message, but shouldn't it be one that doesn't involve the delay of new technology? Think of the children!
I ask you to join me in praying for my trip to Cuba and the United States. I need your prayers.— Pope Francis (@Pontifex) September 18, 2015
Well, we need our iPhones. How else are we supposed to use those cute little emojis that Twitter created for your visit?
iPhone owners wept.
Oscar Mayer just released a dating app, that looks very similar to Tinder, for people who are really fond of bacon
So it's basically just Tinder.
Insisting that it's a very real dating app, the cold cuts and meat production company has launched a website and rolled out the swiping app.
It's location based, so you'll have to tell that meat factory where you are at all times. But it comes with something called a 'Sizzl-meter'. Here's what they say about it on their FAQ
Q: How does the "Sizzl-meter" work?
A: Good question. Holding down the Sizzl-meter on a user's profile indicates your level of interest. The longer you hold, the more Sizzl you feel for them.
There's even a way to report people who don't love bacon!
Unfortunately, only iPhone users can currently find their true bacon lovers.
You probably know that Apple held their annual phone update press conference today. However, you might not know that the tech behemoth also announced a new iPad and a refreshed Apple TV.
Let us give you the basic run down of all the things you need to know about this most recent event.
A flaw in Apple’s iOS is allowing pranksters to remotely shut down other people’s phones.
Some iPhone users on Reddit recently discovered that sending a certain string of text to someone will force the recipient’s device to crash and reboot.
The issue apparently lies in the way the iPhone handles notifications and unicode.
Here’s an explanation from The Guardian:
When the text message is displayed by a banner alert or notification on the lockscreen, the system attempts to abbreviate the text with an ellipsis. If the ellipsis is placed in the middle of a set of non-Latin script characters, including Arabic, Marathi and Chinese, it causes the system to crash and the phone to reboot.
You can watch the error in action in the demo video above.
It reportedly only works if the other person does not already have their text thread open at the time, and you can prevent it from happening to you by turning off banner notifications and text previews (Here’s a visual of the settings on Imgur).
And if you can’t access your messages after the glitch, you can also apparently send a new message to the thread using Siri or Notes, and when it opens just delete the malicious text.
Of course the best way to prevent this from happening is by not being a troll and sending the text to anyone in the first place.
Apple apparently knows this is a problem and is hopefully working on a fix ASAP.
Is this Marvel's newest superhero?
A man in China was arrested this past weekend for trying to smuggle in 94 iPhones from Hong Kong where they are cheaper to purchase.
Customs officials were suspicious of the way he was walking, so they had him go through the metal detectors.
That's when they discovered $49,000 worth of Apple products (both iPhone 6 and iPhone 5S models) taped to his midsection in this makeshift suit of armor.
Crotch Siri is now scarred for life.
The Price is Right has been especially cringeworthy lately.
First we had this little gem a few days ago, where one contestant celebrated his win a bit prematurely, while his competitor made one of the worst bids we have seen.
These two clueless contestants seem to think iPhones are made out of solid gold and unicorn tears.
"I hope the marketing people at Apple are watching this," said Drew Carey.
The reactions from the audience are priceless.
While most young people would be super excited to unwrap an Apple iPhone box on Christmas day, Grandma was not so pleased.
"I'm really not equipped to handle this," she said, noting that she uses a landline.
Fortunately for her, it wasn't exactly an iPhone, but it was still pretty sweet.
She told him not to do that.
Magician Chris Ballinger recently performed an iPhone trick on YouTube comedian GloZell as part of his "Magic Mondays" video series.
The augmented reality app he uses on her, called My Pet Boris, makes it appear as though there is spider on your hand.
Watch until the end for a special surprise, and the best possible reaction from GloZell.
Arachnophobes and Weave-a-phobes beware.
After reports began to break that Apple's new iPhone 6 Plus would bend under light stress, trolls at 4chan and Reddit set out to advertise it as another new feature - much like their fake "Wave" stunt. The resulting video is... surprisingly close to what an actual Apple ad would look like. And others around the internet are getting in on the fun:
It's been only a few days since the launch of the iPhone 6, and Apple fans have already found a problem in their cool new toy. Reports coming from the MacRumors forums and Twitter are showing that the aluminum-glass slab that is the iPhone 6 Plus are bending after extended time in front pockets. Of course that goes double if you happen to wear skinny jeans with tight pockets - but luckily Apple fans aren't the type to be that hip, right?
Here's the video of the entire bend test courtesy of Unbox Therapy:
