6 Tiny Ways To Look Up From Your Smartphone More Often

The more time I spend staring at my iPhone when I don’t really need to, the more choppy and unfocused my thoughts are. When I’m staring at the thing too often, my mind is more likely to veer toward mopey thoughts, time moves faster, and a low-grade anxiety hums in the back of my mind. It’s not realistic for me to ditch it altogether (nor do I want to), but I’m constantly trying to build better boundaries between myself and my phone. When I choose a better option in the moments when I’m compelled to check the phone for no real reason, I feel less like the news cycle, or my emails, or whoever is waiting on me to text them back is dictating the pace of my life.

I think Louis C.K. describes it best when he says ”you need to build an ability to just be yourself and not be doing something” instead of whipping out your phone whenever fleeting thoughts of sadness or emptiness show up. It’s surprisingly tough! Most of us play with our phones all the time because it’s so much easier to find that distraction instead of getting real with ourselves about whatever we’re feeling that day. Here are some itty bitty tips that, while they may seem small, have helped me feel a bit more independent from my phone. Keep reading »

This App Helps Us Get Real About How Many Hours We Spend On Our iPhones

This App Helps Us Get Real About How Many Hours We Spend On Our iPhones

A new app called Moment is an attempt to help us curb our iPhone addictions by telling us exactly how much time we spend staring it at each day. I think most of us don’t realize the massive cumulative impact of the little 5-minute phone checks we do while waiting in line at the store or on the subway platform, because they seem totally innocuous in the moment. I really don’t want to know the ugly truth of how many hours I waste on the little bursts of scanning Instagram and email that I tell myself only take a few seconds from my day — but that’s kind of the point. The fact that I’m so afraid of the number is exactly why I could use a little nudge toward cutting back. Keep reading »

Congrats Dudes, You Can Actually F**k Your iPad Now!

Fleshlight For iPad

Welp, here we are! It is the year 2014 and dudes can officially fuck their handheld devices. Fleshlight, the makers of tubular vagina sex toys for men, has debuted LaunchPAD, a Fleshlight attachment for your iPad or tablet that allows you to thrust your dick into the very device you’re watching porn on. Isn’t technology amazing? Aren’t humans incredible? The things we will do to get off, man. I love it. (Seriously, I do. I think this is super cool.) Sorta SFW ad after the jump!

Meet China’s Hands-Free Sperm Extractor Machine (For The Times When A Regular Handjob Won’t Do)

sperm extractor
Look, Ma, No Hands!

File this one under “Things I Had To Check Weren’t A Clickhole Post First”: hospitals in China have machines to extract sperm. The hands-free gizmos are used by urology departments to manually pump out semen through a “massage pipe” when extracting it the, ummm, normal way doesn’t work anymore. Apparently it is used for sperm donation? I dunno, the sperm extractor looks unappealingly antiseptic and clinical to me (video is SFW), although I guess it’s not much different than a Fleshlight. Pity the poor urological nurse in charge of clean up! [IFL Science]

How Many Of Us Are Online At Any Given Second?

Ever wonder just how fast the Internet moves? PennyStocks put together one of the scariest, most mind-blowing GIF charts I’ve ever seen, illustrating just how much activity happens in each second online. This realtime infographic can show you how many people are Instagramming, Snapchatting, tweeting, pinning, and everything else digital under the sun. I can’t decide whether I’m inspired by the vastness of how connected we all are or just guilty over all the computer time I clock in every week. [Gizmodo via PennyStocks]
