This was a very, very long article about an entirely fictional dildo. I’m not sure how to feel about it.

Those “z-axis” cross section views are not correctly labeled, they should have section lines on the side view to show where the “cut” view was taken. Read more

I wondered about this when I read the article talking about Congressional investigations, but I’ve never understood why ticket fees are so exorbitant. Read more

I saw the creator on To Tell the Truth. He’s at the senior end of middle age, and probably the type that rarely wears earbuds. That may explain a LOT. (And yes, he was the oldest of the three “contestants,” and most celebs thought it was the twenty-something girl who was the real inventor.)

I just bought mine (also the same as yours in the pic) over the weekend and I LOVE IT.

PROTIP: if you flick your wrist a couple of times, the hands move around so you can see the display under it right?

Also some people would wanna know double tapping the watch brings up the light. It’s like that old school fossil Read more

What can possibly go wrong?
It’s interesting how Apple and Google take so diametrically opposed sides on privacy: Google wants to know as much as possible from its users, and Apple wants to know as less as possible (just the other day we learned how Apple TV+ can’t know what we watch, so the recommendations “suck”).

“Clearing your cache” now takes a financial meaning too.

As someone who had the LG Watch Urbane 2nd Edition LTE (pre-recall and pre LG Sport), I can attest to this. The antenna’s were inside the band, and I HATED it. I have smaller wrists and this thing was just a behemoth sitting there, with a very unforgiving band. Break the band, and the watch was junk. 

3:14 PM

If they do follow this path, it better be non-essential tech only. Locking everyone into Apple’s watch band selection, after years of band availability from other makers, is going to really change outlook for this product.

i own one of these already (indiegogo backer here) and your experience is not fact, of the 1800+ that have shipped, i haven’t heard any complaints like yours till now (to be fair, the discord only represents 10-15% of backers and that’s where most conversations are) Read more

But on a day where I walked outside in direct sunlight for about 30 minutes, went to a 60-minute boxing class, and racked up 11,695 steps according to my Apple Watch, I only generated about 108 uwH. Matrix says an over-the-air update in December will reduce the daily requirement to about 4,000uwH, but that’s still an Read more

It’s worth noting, to add to the strange stories of Goldman’s approval secret sauce, that my application was flat-out rejected with a credit score of 824 and sufficient income to offset debts. I don’t need the card, but did want an excuse to dump my Amazon Prime one. Oh well.

4:51 PM

I’ve got to say - I’m slightly disappointed in what they’ve offered me. The APR is okay at 17.99%.  I’m over 800 credit score.  With only a couple hundred tied up in my current cards which get paid off weekly (I use them to live off of instead of cash or my bank cards).  This is also the lowest card offer I’ve Read more

I got approved for $40k at 18% with a ~800 credit score, so there’s definitely some variation in how they’re scoring these accounts.

1:42 PM

I received an early invitation and applied. With a good credit score (820), I was offered $20K at 12.99%. While the card doesn’t offer great cash back rewards unless you use ApplePay, I am interested in the extra security options; specifically the numberless physical card. Read more
