Watch The iPhone 6’s Sapphire Crystal Screen Survive A Stabbing

I have a love/hate relationship with every single Apple product I own.

Frisky Rant: Is It Just Me Or Is Apple Even More Classist Than It Used To Be?

I adore my iPhone. So many things I do on a daily basis would be impossible without it and I’m grateful to have one. That said, Apple and I have some issues. Namely, with this iPhone 5c and 5s craziness. It’s not as though Apple is a stranger to the "shiny new stuff" contest. iPods,…

Apparently, Japanese teens are going hogwild for smartphone-sized panties, or pantsu. The miniature undies are touted as a way to protect your phone's home button, but they also make your phone pretty much impossible to operate until they're removed (sexy!).

Pro-tip: If you are spending hundreds or thousands of dollars to purchase something from a stranger, it's wise to check and make sure you're actually getting what you've bought.

“Leftover Swap” App Lets You Share Your Cold Pizza With Strangers

Imagine opening your fridge to find a couple boxes of chow mein from last night, but not much else (you probably don't have to try too hard to conjure up this scenario, huh?). The only problem is you don't feel like chow mein, so you snap a quick photo of last night's noodles, post it…
