I Love My Cell Phone More Than…

How important is your cell phone in your life? I feel like a lost puppy when mine runs out of batteries or I leave it at my apartment, and I am not alone. A survey conducted by Best Buy indicated that most Americans would rather give up alcohol for a week than hand over their cell phone. Sounds about right. If you can live without talking to your friends and family without seven days but can’t handle giving up vodka tonics, you have a problem. Other things respondents said they would rather do for a week than give up their phone: survive on bread and water, give up television, and have their teeth drilled by a dentist. None of this, however, is as surprising as the German survey that found the majority of respondents would rather do without their significant other or car than the internet. We’re a planet of technology addicts! [UPI]

Answer Your Mobile Phone, Your Dress Is Blinking

Maria Sharapova was on hand to unveil a prototype of a dress that lights up when the wearer’s cell phone or smartphone rings. The dress was designed by British fashion student Georgie Davies for a school project and partnership with Sony Ericsson aimed at incorporating new technology into fashion. Davies said the dress was designed to connect to the wearer’s phone via Bluetooth technology. “When you’re in a pub or a bar, you can never, ever hear your phone,” Davies told Reuters. The good thing is this dress is actually wearable and not at all overly Sci-Fi-looking. The dress is knee-length, white, short-sleeved, and is embellished along one side with translucent white scales (think square paillettes) that move and light up. See more photos here. I’d wear it.

Cell Phone Works As An Ultrasound Machine

Washington University engineers have figured out how to turn a smartphone into an ultrasound machine. This cellphone displays data from a USB ultrasound probe, which could allow for increased prenatal care in developing countries as a cell phone and probe are easier to transport and cost less than a regular ultrasound machine.

    Text Messaging Ruins Jennifer Aniston’s Love Life Too

    The text message: the worst invention to ever happen to dating. Well, it’s at least a close second to the chastity belt. This technological form of “communication” has already left a trail of tears amongst my gal pals. From late night sex solicitation to crazy guys who use the stilted language as a crutch for their fears, the text message has been taking relationships down a notch. Now it’s bullying poor Jennifer Aniston. Everyone’s watched her ex John Mayer put on a show of his breakup blues. He’s been seen around town covering his puffy eyes with stupid sweaters and scarves. But what about Jennifer? She’s been keeping the highly publicized romance classy by keeping her mouth shut. But since her friends don’t share her tact, they’re dishing all the dirt, and apparently, she got dumped via text! It all started with a heated argument where John admitted he didn’t share her “first comes love, then comes marriage, then comes baby in the baby carriage” plan. After hanging up the phone he texted her, “That’s it — the end.” Say it to her face! What a wuss. Damn you text messages, you let another one slip through our fingers. [Denver Post] Keep reading »

    Ringtone Promotes Safe Sex In India

    There are many ways to let people know you’re into having safe sex. The easiest being to verbalize your needs: “I will not sleep with you unless you use a condom.” If you lived in India, you could always let your phone tell people for you. A cell phone ring tone was launched August 8 and features a singer chanting the word “condom” 50 times. So far it has been downloaded 60,000 times. “A ring tone is a very public thing,” said Yvonne MacPherson, the country director of BBC World Service Trust India. “It’s a way to show you are a condom user and you don’t have any issues with it.” We can think of a few other ringtones we wish existed… Keep reading »

    Just Do It: Deleting A Guy’s Number

    I’m a numbers girl.

    I take pride in my cell’s large phone book as much as I take pride in amassing new Facebook friends, Tumblr followers, and page views. I’m sorry, but in this day and age, the higher the numbers get, the cooler one looks.

    This creates a problem, however, when there are just certain people to whom one shouldn’t be linked—past lovers. Naturally, the Internet makes it hard to completely escape from the counterpart of your failed relationship. But, in some sort of sick backwards logic, I tend to increase this hardship by keeping them around in the digital arena for longer than necessary. Keep reading »
