We're not super sure what drives people to make absolutely insane demands and insult the hell out of strangers their dealing with. Is it the anonymity? Maybe sheer desperation? Either way these folks don't look like they're going away any time soon, so the only thing we can do is prove to them that their tactics won't work.
I thought we learned our lesson from Frankenstein, but apparently not. In the latest development of freaky technology, some researchers have decided to create an interactive phone case made from artificial human skin. Instead of tapping your phone screen, you tap, tickle, and pinch the creepy skin to command your phone or laptop through it.
Honestly, it feels like Halloween has come early because I'd never in a million years touch that haunted thing. But, as usual, some weirdos out there are into it.
A security guard for Nicki Minaj is in trouble after pulling out his phone at a concert. She was understandably upset that someone paid to protect her was paying more attention to his screen than his surrounding.
Responses ranged from supportive to confrontational about her decision to toss the guard's phone to the floor.

Right or wrong, he'll definitely think twice before texting on the job again.
There used to be a rumor that if you call 999, the UK version of 911, you can charge your phone. It's a myth that's often had to be debunked by local police forces all over England. Apparently it all started with Blackberry and what turned out to be a flaw in the programming that developers intended to be a helpful way to conserve battery power for emergencies only.
Youtube host Tom Scott travels all the way to the Blackberry headquarters in Slough, England to set the record straight.
As a sidenote, for those of us who are not UK residents, he also takes a moment in the comments to explain why Slough is such a punchline in the video.
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.
You can't blame everything on planned obsolescence. We've all been there, cracked phone screen or rushing to find a bag of rice for drying purposes. Cell phones are a lot of responsibility—and sometimes you just can't adult like you should. Reddit asked the question : What is the dumbest way you've ever broken a phone? Rest assured that your phone is in safer hands than these.
It seems like only yesterday that Donald Trump gave out Sen. Lindsey Graham's actual phone number.
Oh wait. It was.
Well, Graham came back July 22 with this cloying video of him destroying a number of phones in answer to Trump's taunting, juvenile move.
The video says nothing about any issues, the campaign, justice, America, et al. Instead, it says everything about what we can look forward to over the next year and a half until the general election silences some of this attention-grabbing nonsense.
However, Graham's video just raises a really, really important question:
Does a 2016 Presidential candidate really still use a flip phone?
