T-Mobile customers now have the option of texting and photo messaging at 35,000 feet on planes equipped with WiFi (which, these days, is most of them). I realize this should logically be a reason to celebrate, especially since T-Mobile’s service seems to be the most insufferable of all phone companies and their customers deserve a treat like this for putting up with it. What I worry about, though, is whether this could be a gateway for things to escalate into the ability to make full-on lengthy phone calls in the air. Some people love the idea of that, but it makes me a nervous wreck. Can you imagine being trapped in a metal tube for several hours with someone who won’t stop loudly yakking away on their iPhone? Besides, what do we really need to text about up in the sky unless, say, our plane got diverted to another city and we wanted to frantically text our aunt to tell her not to start driving to the airport to pick us up? I can’t be the only one who occasionally secretly loves the fact that I’m forced to disconnect for a little while when I’m in the air. The only definite positive of this is that it will open many new doors for creative sexting. [Travel And Leisure] [Image via Shutterstock]

Apple Unveils The iPhone 6 And The Apple Watch

There Are More Adult Women Gamers Than Gamer Boys Under 18

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. A huge part of the increase is due to mobile games, like “Kim Kardashian: Hollywood,” “Candy Crush,” and the not-still-popular-but-still-on-my-phone “Angry Birds.” [Wall Street Journal]
