You know the feeling. You and a friend are having a conversation via text and the little bubble with the blinking dots shows up indicating that she's typing. So much anticipation! You'd stare at those dots for hours waiting for a text, wouldn't you? Wouldn't it be funny if the dots just kept blinking?
Attention, Mac people who just bought or are about to receive a new iPhone. If your old iPhone is still fairly new, you don’t have any kids yammering for an iPod Touch (that you want to give them), and you have no other reason to keep it, you should probably sell it.
Saturday is the second anniversary of Steve Jobs's death, and a lot of remembrances are making their way around the web. One of the most revealing comes from the New York Times Magazine who just published a sprawling report on the original iPhone. Long story short, that thing was a mess.
Since the iPhone 5S landed in the hands of new owners a few weeks ago, there have been reports that on-board sensors like the gyroscope, compass, and accelerometer haven't been working properly on some devices. We've confirmed the new iPhone's failings on our own. It's not just off. It's embarrassing.
You know what's better than meat? The smell of meat. That is, should you be a carnivore. And if you are and can't afford proper meat, there's a Japanese gadget for you.

Why do these people still wait in line to buy a new iPhone? Or a new console? Or a new game? What's the point? Do they think they're going to be more special than the rest of the world for 24 hours? A week perhaps? This video tries to get some answers.
If true, this is really weird. This video shows a Japanese iPhone 5S user using his nipples to lock and unlock the new iPhone 5S, which has a fingerprint sensor built-in. Apparently, the sensor works on nipples and toes!
