Facebook creeping is no longer totally anonymous


Facebook’s new “Stories” update is here, and it ruins the best part about the entire social network: Mindlessly plumbing your friends’ lives without fear of getting caught.

When you watch a friend’s Story — which exists for 24 hours and is comprised of one or more photos or short videos — that friend will know you’re creeping.

Thanks to Samsung, Apple's Smart Battery Case is no longer the ugliest thing ever!

I abide by a personal “ugly scale”, which goes from 1 to “iPhone Smart Battery Case – Charcoal Gray.” You know which one I’m clamoring about – the one that makes the sleek and elegant iPhone look like it’s got a parasitic twin growing on its back. But now that I’ve seen Samsung’s new 2Piece Cover for the Galaxy S8 and S8+, I think it’s time for an upgrade. It’s pictured above, in all its disgusting glory.

What in the name of Satan’s pet boar Cortez is going on here?! I demand an explanation! Samsung obliged: “The complementary hues of each cover add a unique geometric …

So let’s say that you drop your iPhone and crack the screen. As you dry the tears from your eyes, you see a little shop offering a great deal on screen repairs.
