Pizza people, never stop trying to make pizza bigger, better and more delicious, okay? That’s what the folks at Domino’s have done, with a new DVD disk that smells like pizza. Brazilian advertising firm Artplan created the disks, which somehow make a pizza smell when you stick them in your DVD player. Right now, the pizza disks are only available in Brazil (so lucky) at a few different video stores around Sao Paulo and Rio de Janeiro, but hopefully they’ll make their way up north soon, so I can have some snack-o-vision in my life.

“The Oxford English Dictionary accepts both pronunciations … They are wrong. It is a soft ‘G,’ pronounced ‘jif.’ End of story.”

Steve Wilhite, the inventor of the GIF and winner of a Webby award, expresses his irritation at the bastardization of the word. I’m sorry, but I don’t think I’m going to be able to change the way I pronounce the word. JIF is peanut butter, not an animated image of Tanning Mom modeling a bikini. But that may have been the point.  Fun fact about GIFs: A website called the GIF Pronunciation Page suggests that the GIF was purposefully named to make it sound like the popular brand of American peanut butter, “one of the principal three programmer foods (the other two being Pepsi and nacho cheese Doritos).” Still not going to change the way I say it.

When I spent a ridiculous amount of money on a brand new smartphone, I knew it was only a matter of time until I broke it, and sure enough, two weeks after I got it, I was touring a house my best friend was considering renting, and dropped my phone while attempting to take a photo of the view from the deck. The screen was shattered, but miraculously the phone still worked perfectly. I couldn’t afford to replace it right away, so I’ve been making do with a cracked cellphone screen ever since. The first couple days–when sending a simple text would coat my fingertips in bits of glass–were a bit rough, but after that, I’ve actually come to realize there are some unsung benefits of a cracked cellphone screen. Here are five of them… Keep reading »

Have you seen Google Glass yet? It’s the impossibly expensive ($1,500) new toy Google recently unleashed. What it is: An attachment one affixes to your eyeglasses that allows you to snap photos and record video with the blink of an eye. A sort of creepy, futuristic “Jetsons”-type gadget, Google Glass is basically like affixing a computer to your head. You can watch videos, record videos, take photos and browse the web, via the glass.

Consequently, nerdy guys love it. And because it’s currently only available on a limited basis, and just to the very connected, nerdy white Silicon Valley guys have been caught wearing their Google Glasses out on the town — and they look pretty funny. And thankfully, White Men Wearing Google Glass, a Tumblr devoted to chronicling the travels and travails of white guys with Google Glass affixed to their glasses, captures it all. Keep reading »

Facebook Unveils ‘Home’ For Phones

The “Facebook phone” is here and, as expected, it is not a phone built by Facebook. Instead, the company unveiled “Facebook Home,” a download that converts an Android phone into a Facebook-centric device, reports CNET. It will be available on a limited basis April 12 at the Google Play store. That’s the same day HTC is rolling out its HTC First, the first phone to ship with Facebook Home in place. (It will run $99 with a two-year contract from AT&T, reports TechCrunch.) “We’re not building a phone and we’re not building an operating system,” says CEO Mark Zuckerberg. “We’re building something a whole lot deeper than an ordinary app.” Read more…

Dating With Tinder: What It’s Really Like To Date With Hookup Apps

I joined Tinder last month at the insistence of my friends. Before I downloaded the app, I had no clue what it was, but listening to my buddies raving about it, you’d think it was the second coming of Facebook.

For guys who love looking at pictures of girls in bikinis and frivolously casting a split-second judgment on them (guys like me, I mean), it came pretty close to being the greatest thing since sliced bread.

Well, for a week or so anyway. Read more …

Forget Instagram! Vine is the new social media hot spot. Six second videos from all your best digital friends? Sign me up. As long as they’re interesting, that is. As a general rule of thumb in social media, no one wants to see mundane posts about your Friday night viewing of “Bridesmaids” or a rundown of what you had for breakfast. And that’s no different with Vine—in fact, there’s even more to consider when sharing live-action shots. In Vine’s short life, I’ve already seen all types of overshares—from a fork-to-mouth video to a toothbrushing/flossing supercut. If you want to come off cool and savvy – and don’t want to scare away potential love interests, you who you might be interested in dating, shy away from these Vine faux-pas … Keep reading »

Instagram

I’ve decided to stop using Instagram. It only just occurred to me that maybe I don’t want people to see where I am and who I’m with at that exact moment. There are lots of other things you can use Instagram for, of course, and I can always take those photos and ‘gram ‘em later, but that loses the whole “Insta” part of it.

Why am I giving it up? I’ve gone through my feed and I see some friends and acquaintances who are not only taking a photo of where they are but have also “checked in,” and described their exact place within that location (like, “Partying at [cool club here] in the back room, like rockstars!”) One day I thought, “Wow, this has the potential to be really dangerous.” Then I thought about how when I’ve gone on vacation I’ve posted my vacation pics on Instagram, too. It’s almost like I’m saying, “I’m not home right now, I am clearly across the country at the moment, feel free to rob my apartment and steal my car.” Keep reading »

5 New Gadgets & How To Use Them For Porn

With every New Year comes a new round of technological gadgets that are supposed to make our lives easier. Not only do they usually do that, but after awhile someone realizes that on top of bringing us closer — communication wise — and making the world seem smaller, the aforementioned gadgets are actually really handy when it comes to pornography.

Whether you need a porn fix while you’re on-the-go, or you want to direct your own personal skin-flick, 2013 has some technology to help you do just that. Read more…
