New Puma iPhone App Has Women Stripping Down As The DOW Crashes?

I’m confused. What does a sportswear line have to do with the stock market? Puma is advertising its new line of bodywear for women with an iPhone app that shows women putting on and taking off Puma-branded clothing … as the DOW rises and falls? Here’s how it works. The Puma Index app — which will get you 20 percent off at Puma if you show it at the store — features three lovely models dressed in varying amounts of Puma gear. When the DOW rises, they put on more clothes; when the DOW falls … and falls … they strip down to reveal the Puma bodywear they have underneath. Oh, and they jump on trampolines. “We’ve seen a lot of branded applications and a lot of them play it too straight down the middle,” Antonio Bertone, Puma’s Chief Marketing Officer, told CNBC. “We thought that if we could do this right and have models take off clothes when the market was going down, this could really work.” So, in theory, app users want the market to crash, right? Because what would ultimately happen if it just kept going lower and lower? “They’ll be in their bra and underwear having a pillow fight.” Check out the video demonstrating how the app works, after the jump … [CNBC] Keep reading »

iPhone Apps You Shouldn’t Be Without

I have to admit, before last night, I had never downloaded an app. I protested profusely against them for as long as I could, but now I find myself wanting to download more and more. (I went through the same routine with the iPhone, insisting that nothing could be more confusing and unnecessary than having a phone, iPod, and internet combined into one, but when I was given the device as a gift, I soon came to love, er, be obsessed with it.)

GPS Is For S-E-X

GPS may prevent married couples from fighting over directions, but it’s also been helping single people mingle. A few new applications have been sticking the P right in GPS! While these programs might not be designed to help you locate your next sexy time, that certainly hasn’t stopped creative users from hitting it up for a hot spot. Here are three free iPhone and/or Blackberry apps that can sponsor your even freer love…

iPhone App Tricks Thieves into Revealing Their Location

There are iPhone apps for practically everything, from finding restaurants and bars to staying on budget and reading your horoscope. Now there’s one that will help you find the location of your phone if it gets taken by a pervy thief. The stealth iDateMe appears to be a provocative image of a woman in bed, but this app doesn’t have anything to do with sex or dating. The bedheaded lady in the photo is meant to lure whoever stole your phone into clicking on the button, which in turn gives away the location of the stolen iPhone using its GPS system. The only catch is that for the app to work, the dude who takes your phone has to be into chicks. [VentureBeat] Keep reading »

Gmail To Prevent Drunk Messaging (Well, On The Weekends, At Least)

We’ve all been there, we’ve had a bit too much to drink — more than some of us would care to admit — and suddenly, calling, texting, or emailing an old flame seems like the best. Idea. Ever!! You know it never goes well and the humiliation the next morning is worse than the raging hangover. It’s not just old flames we drunkenly reach out to, either — there are also estranged friends and family members, old (or, worse, current) bosses and co-workers, and random cuties online. Back when Friendster was the social networking site du jour and I was nursing a broken heart and wounded ego, I spent more than one wine-soaked evening exchanging messages with attractive, 28-38 year-old men in my area, messages I hope stay as buried as that broken relationship I was trying to get over.

On occasions like those, it would have been nice to have someone — anyone! — stop me and say, “Wendy, do you really want to send that message? Are you sure it’s not just the booze talking?” I can’t guarantee I wouldn’t have pushed “send” just the same, but still, maybe a voice of reason would have saved me from one or two of my more embarrassing drunken messaging mishaps. If Gmail has anything to say about it, all of us are about to have that much-needed voice of reason in our lives…well, on the weekends, anyway (and provided you don’t suck at math).
