A Hungry, Hungry iPhone Case

I swear this isn’t some sort of weird affectation, but I really don’t like carrying a wallet. This is true whether I’m going to work, taking my dog for a walk, or headed out for the night with a teeny, tiny purse. I mean, all I really need is my iPhone, my ID, a credit card and some cash. This iPhone case from Connect Design gets where I’m coming from. The flexible “mouth” on the back will fit everything from cash and credit cards to ear buds and sticks of gum. Everything you need, all in one place. Awesome! [$20, Connect Design]

In today’s edition of “Real Life Is Basically Already ‘Star Trek’,” researchers at the University of Texas have created a device that would allow cellphones to see through walls, wood, plastic, paper, and other solid objects. Yes, seriously. A microchip taps into a range of the electromagnetic spectrum, a receiver translates the data, and ta-da: instant x-ray vision for your iPhone. It’s unclear when this new technology will be available for purchase, but damn, we’re already daydreaming about the scary and awesome possibilities of portable x-ray vision. How would you use a device like this? To locate wall studs? See if there’s a tampon in the bottom of your purse? Or maybe to find a definitive answer to that age-old question: is that a banana in your pocket or are you just happy to see me? [EarthSky Science News]

Real talk: Both Ami and I are obsessive Tetris players. We both play Tetris on our iPhones on our travels to and from work. It’s my subway escape. I have mastered how to play while embarking and disembarking from the train and I can play virtually anywhere. Ami’s high score (she’s only been playing a couple of months) is 205,746. Mine is 568,600. I’ve played no less than, like, 13,000 games on my phone. Like, my phone might as well just be for Tetris and text messages. I, uh, might have a problem.

It occurred to me that Tetris might not just be a game of fitting shapes into other shapes originally invented by Russians (true story): It might also be a metaphor! For life! And love! And so Ami and I have come up with a list of 13 rules of Tetris that also apply to dating.  Keep reading »

I’ll admit I was skeptical when I heard that the White House was holding a technology challenge for developers to create an app that would help prevent sexual violence. All of the stuff that I believe can change the prevalence of sexual violence — harsher punishments for criminals, a cultural change on what consent means, a modification of the way we use alcohol and drugs — cannot be found in the App Store. But I’m impressed — very impressed — by the contest’s winning app called Circle Of Six. Keep reading »
