13 People Confess Their Thoughts On Using Smartphones During Sex

13 People Confess Their Thoughts On Using Smartphones During Sex

Remember that episode from the first season of “Sex and the City” (which, go back and watch sometime, because the first season of that show was pretty special) when Miranda called her ex Skipper and he picked up while he was having sex with his new girlfriend? (And then he broke up with the new girlfriend because he missed Miranda, while he was “still inside” the other chick? I have this show way too memorized.) Anyway, I remember watching that scene and being like, WHO THE HELL picks up or uses their phone during sex? Um, apparently a lot of people, if this bunch of confessions from Whisper are any indication… Keep reading »

Instagram Has Private Messaging Now

Meet Instagram Direct!

love Instagram. I may even be a little bit addicted, so I was sort of on the edge of my seat this morning when the app held a press event to announce some mystery news. Instagram’s co-founder, Kevin Systrom, revealed Instagram Direct, which allows you to send photos and videos to one person or a select group of people, like private messaging. I was expecting something a little more epic than that, but this is pretty cool! Of course, the announcement is provided via a twee music video of road-tripping carefree youth. Because that’s how Instagram rolls.

You’ll be able to see when someone has viewed your message and whether they’ve “liked” it. You can only receive photos and videos from people you actually follow, and if you get a photo from someone you don’t know, it goes into a pending requests list. To ward off all the creeper capabilities this provides, the photo itself doesn’t show up until you explicitly accept the private message invitation, and if you ignore someone’s request once, that person will continually be ignored until you tell Instagram otherwise.

I, like many people do, figure that while online shopping, companies track the things I look at, how long I look at them, and whether or not I buy them. This is, of course, then reflected in the advertisements that I will later see on other websites. Although slightly unnerving, tech-savvy consumers have come to expect this and generally aren’t perturbed by it. However, when similar tactics go on in brick-and-mortar stores, some people are not nearly as comfortable. Keep reading »

Textercuff: The Perfect Sex Toy For Text Addicts

For some, the pleasure of returning text messages is one that should be denied. The Textercuff, part handcuff, part thumb gag, is the perfect sex toy for restraining your technology addict from the instant gratification he desires. Deny him the touch of his iPhone, shame him for being too plugged in, make him beg to tap the keys, punish him until he knows who’s the boss of his text messages. Then release his thumb from bondage and let him have at it. I’m dubbing this Kinkology. [Gizmodo]

Don’t judge me by my Android phone, Match.com! I resent the fact that a new study done by the online matchmaking site claims that Droid users are the loosest of all Smartphone owners. I quote: “Androids may be the newest Smartphone on the market but their users have already been around the block.” from a recent blog post which details the findings of this cellular study.

According to their research, “62 percent of Android users have sex on the first date and are most likely to have a one night stand, at 55 percent.” Oh, that’s great. Now I have to hide my Droid so my date doesn’t believe I’m just down for a quickie in the bathroom stall of a restaurant. Keep reading »
