October 23: Best Technology Headline Ever!
Want This Plush So Bad!
OMG … totally want the cuddly pink digestive system plush doll from the new Yakult yogurt drink campaign “Love Your Insides”. Unfortunately Yakult is too busy making healthy drinks and have failed to begin production on this epic toy. We contacted Yakult with our dismay and upon receipt, will report their response (come on Yakult … these would make perfect Christmas gifts!).
In the meantime, you can enjoy this little digestive dude in his infamous TV commercial called “True Love” … what would I do, without a friend like you?
A curious headline from Australian news agency News.Com.Au regarding this week’s “Back To The Mac” media event by Apple.
We’re still talking about tablet computers … aren’t we?
In case you have a life and missed the news … last month, “Jersey Shore” star Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino launched his official iPhone app …
cleverly named The Situation – Official App. The app enjoyed immediate success … skyrocketing into Apple’s Top 10 Grossing apps and ensuring Mikey has plenty of cash to keep buying Muscle Milk and fake tans.
But apparently it’s not all fine and dandy for this guido … The Situation has a bit of a situation with his newly released application.
Grenade Dodger is a video game within The Situation app. The objective is to avoid being hit by grenades by moving The Situation from side to side. In the case of this application, and on the hit reality TV series “Jersey Shore”, grenades are ugly girls.
According to RadarOnline.com, in efforts to keep the app as authentic as possible, The Situation instructed his developers to visits clubs he had frequented and shoot pictures of “3’s and 4’s” (on a scale of 1 to 10 for looks) for the Grenade Dodger game. RaderOnline.com reports …
When they surfaced on the application, one of the “grenades” was horrified and has since made legal threats to the breakout star of MTV’s reality smash.
“While the girls did know their photos were being taken, they were unaware they were about to become official grenades,” a source told RadarOnline.com.
“It came as a complete surprise and at least one of them is now considering her legal options.”
Just a bad Situation … bad!
Back in August, we featured an undiscovered grid-style iOS 4 iPhone 4 home screen wallpaper. We thought it was totally cool, extremely clever and promptly programmed it as our own wallpaper.
Two months later, this little gem has deservingly been all over the Internet … re-blogged, tweeted, digged, flickred, etc.
Today we present a slight variation of the original wallpaper … some of the callouts have changed and a new color, black, has been added. Remakes of the classic original … hope you’ll enjoy!

OMG! – GREAT NEWS! – OMG!
Victoria’s Secret has just launched their first official iPad app [iTunes FREE] and all we can say is WOW! Hell, we could barely put the damn thing down to bang out this article. If you thought the Victoria’s Secret iPhone app [iTunes FREE] was smokin’ … just wait until you see those scantily clad Angel hotties come to life on your iPad’s 9.7 inch screen … it’s lingerie nirvana!
The application’s feature attraction (in our humble opinion) is the world famous Victoria’s Secret catalog. Page after page – swipe after swipe … this e-catalog is filled with sexy supermodel goodness. As the app’s descriptions says, “your iPad will be sexier than ever” … oh yes it will. <blush>
Although most males will spend 99% of their browsing time ogling the catalog, the Victoria’s Secret app offers plenty of other
eye candy useful functionality … a store locator, exclusive videos, information about special events, store openings, photo shoots and more. Plus the app is coded extremely well … high quality stuff from this lingerie retail giant.
Oh and if you thought Apple no longer permits applications featuring half-naked hot chicks … Apple’s Senior VP – Philip Schiller – previously announced a loophole to the policy … well-known companies (Playboy, Sports Illustrated, Victoria’s Secret, et al.) can publish overtly sexual applications. HOORAY for inconsistency (and sarcasm too)!
See the loophole? … Jump right in! Put down that lame Sears catalog and go get one of the sexiest apps still available for download … the Victoria’s Secret for iPad.
Well luckily the folks at iBroomCloset recognize this severe void in society and have published … the BieberHair iPhone app.
Simply point your camera at the subject … click your iPhone’s shutter release … and BABY, BABY, BABY – OH … you just made the world a better place.
Look at Eminem … seems much happier as a Bieber!
Kim Kardashian … totally hotter as a Bieber babe!
Hans Solo … way bigger bad ass as a Bieber!
Steve Jobs … truly magical with his revolutionary iBieber mane!
Homer goes Bieber … simply amazing!
iBroomCloset is already working on updates to BieberHair … V1.1 will have the ability to email directly from the app … while the much needed V2.0 will allow users to put Bieber hair on existing pictures in your camera roll.
More Bieber? … BABY, BABY, BABY – NO!
As previously discussed … Apple has a problem with fart apps. After approving something like 27 million fart apps, they now decided the App Store contains too many of these one gun salutes. So it came as bit of a surprise to the folks at Rabe & Co. that their fart application … Fartify … was approved last week.
But it’s hard to blame Apple for letting Fartify sneak by (pun point +1) as it’s one of the best fart apps ever!
Fartify is NOT one of those tired and boring soundboard apps … rather it’s ART. In New York City, there is a grassroots movement … a street-art project where public signs are slapped with fart bubbles. These folks take their fart art seriously and produce some brilliant pieces.
Inspired by this street-art project, Fartify lets you add fart bubbles to your photos. Simply find the best cheek-flapper … snap a picture (or use images from camera roll) … rotate, enlarge and add a fart bubble … voila – pure gravy pants goodness.
There is no limit or boundaries with Fartify … only your creativity and imagination. Pretty much every photograph could benefit from the great brown cloud. Jobs / Gates – Megan Fox – Obama / McCain … all look better with Fartify. And as the trademark goes … there’s an ass for that!
