Most yoga classes start out with a request to turn off or silence your cellphones, and a tacit understanding that if you do pull out your wireless device during class, you’re going to get some disapproving looks from the teacher and your classmates. As was the case during a lunchtime yoga class at Facebook headquarters, when a female employee started typing on her phone during a half moon pose. The teacher, Alice Van Ness, shot her a stern glance. Two weeks later, Van Ness was fired from her job… Keep reading »

Genius computer person, Tanner Stokes, invented a browser extension that converts annoying YouTube comments into the language of “herp derp.” Just download and “herp derp” the crap out of those anonymous comments. If Tanner develops a “hero derp” button for all internet commenting, we could have a virtual mutiny on our hands. It will be like some “Terminator” shit. The “herp derp” converter will destroy us all. Bwahahaha! [Boing Boing]

We all have dodgy photos of our friends on our phones in embarrassing or damn near blackmail-worthy positions. But a survey of 1,500 people has shown that one-fourth of women say they’ve posted unflattering pic of their friends on Facebook on purpose. Yup, on purpose. The most common reason a “friend” posted a picture of her gal pal doing bong hits in the church parking lot is exactly what you think it would be: sweet, sweet revenge. So party carefully when there’s cameras around, especially if you’ve recently committed an act of treachery. Sigh. The older I get, the more aware I am the word “friend” is greatly overused.  [The Daily]

Wake up, you're snoring!

I don’t know about you, but I can’t wait to get my hands on the new Polar Bear pillow that will wake me up every five minutes with a slap on the face. This new device called “Jukusui-kun,” meaning “Deep Sleep,” was designed by a Japanese professor to help sufferers of sleep apnea stop snoring throughout the night. A polar bear-shaped pulse-oxygen meter is attached to the snorer’s hand while the person lays his or her head on another polar bear with a microphone attached. Once you’re sound asleep, the device will recognize when your oxygen level has dropped and your noise level has increased, resulting in a little tap on the head if you’re snoring gets out of hand. Whether you love sleeping with polar bears, or you are no longer interested in a good night’s rest, make sure to get your claws on this ingenious device when (if) it hits U.S. stores!  [Jezebel]

I am writing this post at the request of my co-workers. This morning when I came into the office, my co-workers were talking about how our video server was being obstinate. My reply was, “You must romance it into submission.” This was met with confused looks. So, I was obliged to present my Theory Of Technology Romance. My hypothesis is as follows: The more adversarial and impatient you are toward technology, the more problems it will present you. Shower your technology with love, kindness and affection, romance it, and you will have your technology eating out of the palm of your hand. Well, not eating, but printing out your copies, sending your epic text message when you have one bar of service or generally submitting to your will. Love your technology and it will love you back. After the jump, some tips for how to do this. Keep reading »

One of my favorite perks of being an adult is that no one yells at me to make my bed every day. Now, thanks to a Spanish furniture company’s new invention, I can yell at my bed to make itself. It’s called the Smart Bed, and at the touch of a button, it smooths the sheets, adjust the duvet, and repositions the pillows. Check out the demo video and tell us: would you ever want to own a Smart Bed? [Buzzfeed]

Whenever I go to my friend Henry’s house, he always pulls out some new tech toy or accessory that both confuses me and makes me want to run to the Apple store and drop a few hundred bucks. Last time I was over his new toy was decidedly low tech, but just as impressive: the Grid-It organizer. Basically it’s a flat organizer that uses a series of elastic straps to keep all your stuff — iPod, phone, earbuds, pens, notepad, camera, etc. — safely in place. They come in a variety of sizes and would make it super easy to switch purses in a snap! [$15-$25, The Container Store]

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]

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]

This past week, I unfriended an old friend from high school because he posted a really douchey comment on my Facebook page, and the whole debacle got me thinking about Facebook Friend Dealbreakers: those annoying/offensive/stupid things that always send us searching for the “unfriend” button. I polled the rest of the Frisky staff and we came up with 20 dealbreakers–from major infractions to minor pet peeves–that will get you kicked off our friend lists.
