Cat Proves The iPhone 5s Fingerprint Sensor Also Works For Pawprints

Cat Unlocks iphone 5s
Watch this cat unlock an iPhone 5s!

That fancy shmancy new sensor on the iPhone 5s that allows you to unlock your phone with a quick scan of your fingerprint? Turns out it also works for pets! TechCrunch tested the technology on a cat’s paw, and while it took a few attempts, sure enough, the phone was able to identify the cat’s unique paw print. When other cats’ paws were scanned, the sensor could tell they were impostors and refused to unlock. What does this mean? Well, Apple’s fingerprint technology is even more impressive than we all thought, and you can finally get your cat its own iPhone and not have to worry about other cats stealing it. No matter what species you are, that shit is secure. [TechCrunch]

Maintain Your Smartphone’s Modesty With A Pair Of Silicone Panties

Smartphone Panties Pantsu

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!). Pantsu come in a variety of styles –including little boxer briefs! — and are currently for sale in Japanese vending machines (Japan, never change). After looking at this picture for too long, I have to admit I totally want a pair of the strawberry ones. It’s really the least I could do for my sad, cracked phone. [Oddity Central]

iphone apple scam in Australia

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. Case in point, a naive 21-year-old woman living in the suburbs of Brisbane, Australia, who searched around on a Craigslist-y site called Gumtree for a new iPhone. A fellow Gumtree-er got back to her and said that she actually had two Apple (crucial fact) iPhones she was willing to part with for $1,200 Australian bucks. The two met at a local McDonald’s and exchanged cash for the phones. Only …

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 to a new app called Leftover Swap, and start scrolling through other local leftover offerings to see if anyone might have some pizza or a sandwich to trade. Are you grossed out or intrigued? Either way, you’re not alone. “It’s obviously not for everybody,” Leftover Swap co-founder Dan Newman told NPR. “But for as many people who seemingly have a problem with it, there’s people who love the idea.” Keep reading »

When I spent a ridiculous amount of money on a brand new smartphone, I knew it was only a matter of time until I broke it, and sure enough, two weeks after I got it, I was touring a house my best friend was considering renting, and dropped my phone while attempting to take a photo of the view from the deck. The screen was shattered, but miraculously the phone still worked perfectly. I couldn’t afford to replace it right away, so I’ve been making do with a cracked cellphone screen ever since. The first couple days–when sending a simple text would coat my fingertips in bits of glass–were a bit rough, but after that, I’ve actually come to realize there are some unsung benefits of a cracked cellphone screen. Here are five of them… Keep reading »
