  • The Reports Of Fire Phone’s Death Are Greatly Exaggerated

    The Reports Of Fire Phone’s Death Are Greatly Exaggerated

    The cynics among us believe that the Amazon Fire Phone is going to be a flop. As Matt Haughey shows us in the above image, a phone attached to a product finder sounds like a mercenary mess, aimed at improving Amazon’s life and not ours. Our own Darrell Etherington believes that the price is too high at $199 (and a wild $649 for an unlocked model). Instead, he believes that it should cost… Read More

    In what amounts to either a breathtaking breach of privacy or one of the most fascinating sex research artifacts of the year, PornMD (acceptably SFW as long as you don’t search), a porn search engine, has broken down porn searches by country and US state. The system offers a fairly complete view into the fapping habits of people worldwide and suggests that while the people of Minnesota… Read More

The new app can… Read More
