Apple Unveils The iPhone 6 And The Apple Watch

  • Today, Apple unveiled two new phones: the gigantic-screened iPhone 6 and the even clunkier iPhone 6 Plus. Both phones will be released on September 19th.

The watch will be available in early 2015 for around $350. Exciting! [The Verge, New York Times]

todays lady news
  • The face of gaming is still a pack of rowdy preteen boys, faux-blasting each other with pixelated guns for giggles. In the United States, adult women are an impressive 48 percent of all gamers — more than gamer boys under 18.

The SexFit Is Basically A Pedometer That Will Post Your Dude's Thrusting Stats To Facebook

You guys know me, I’m all for new advancements in sexual technology. Sex toys? I’ve tried ‘em. Cannabis lube? I’ve used up every drop! But a cock ring that monitors a dude’s thrusts per minute and calories burned, and then posts that info to social media? NOPE. First of all, goddammit, can’t we all just enjoy one form of physical activity without obsessing over its weight loss potential?

Pop Virtual Pimples With This Super Zitty Game App

Pop Virtual Pimples With This Super Zitty Game App

Now that I’ve reached the A-list in “Kim Kardashian’s Hollywood” — though I am still working my balls off and have a few more levels to go — I’m looking for another iPhone game to waste precious braincells on. And lo and behold, I think I’ve found one that appeals to my grossest instincts: Pimple Popper, the game that awards you points for “popping” a variety of different kinds of pimples. Each pimple type — blackheads, whiteheads, full blown pimples and pimple scabs — has a specific way it can be popped/peeled, oozes pus and makes a delightful sound. As you ascend the levels, the pimples become more plentiful, just like my face every day of junior high and high school! If you’re not ready to commit to the $1.99 price without popping a few pimples first, there’s a Lite version of the game that you can download for free. Happy popping! [Pimple Popper via Buzzfeed]
