It's That Time of Year When All Anyone Wants to Talk About is Apple

Well folks it’s about that time. For you Apple fanatics, we know you’ve been itching for the latest release and it has finally come! Apple has recently announced features and release dates for their newest products: the iPhone 6 and6 plus..

Apple is offering two renditions of the 6th installment in the iPhone legacy, the 6 and the 6 plus. The most elementary difference is the size. The iPhone 6 plus is not only bigger than the previous iPhone, but it also makes the Samsung Galaxy look like rather tiny in comparison.

They have adjusted simple issues, such as moving the sleep switch to the right side to make it more easily accessible or allowing the home screen to rotate as well. Although they are making the phone bigger, the features associated with it still allow it to work as well as a small phone. For example, apps at the top of the rather large screen become accessible with a simple touch of the home button. They instantly slide down to be reached by your thumb.

#TBT: Top 5 Gadgets of the 90's

Pagers

Before the cell phone, if you wanted to reach somebody while they were mobile, you were forced to call the number to their pager and wait for what seemed like forever for them to call you back. If you wanted them to put a little pep in their step, you could always type a “911” at the end of the number to promote urgency. That, or train an owl to deliver your messages. Sounds archaic, right? Well this is how things were once upon a time.


Tamogatchi

The electronic gaming system before Nintendo dominating the toy stores. The handheld digital pet that could somehow keep kids entertained for hours. With only 3 small buttons, the choices were not as extensive as one would think. However, children remained amused as they struggled to keep their electronic animals alive.

New Nail Polish Can Help Detect Date Rape Drugs

For a woman in today’s society, you can never be too careful. How many times have you heard “don’t leave your drink unattended” or “don’t let a stranger make you a drink”? Well, this is because of the use of date rape drugs, like roofies, GHB, and Xanax. These drugs are often slipped into unsuspected females’ drinks and it puts them in a position in which they are unable to defend themselves. The odorless, tasteless drugs are impossible to detect, until now.

Four college students from North Carolina have invented a nail polish that has the ability to detect these practically undetectable drugs. The polish will change color when it makes contact with any of the “date rape” drugs. With a subtle swirl of your finger you can find out if your drink is safe or not.

The New York City Survival Guide


So, you’ve just made the daring move to the big apple. Good for you. Now what? In case you didn’t know, things are different here. Life is faster, people are meaner, and food is more expensive. Even with all of this, you are certainly in for a whirlwind adventure that you could not obtain anywhere else. We have put our brains together to come up with a fool-proof guide to surviving the streets of NYC. Pay close attention because this may be the best advice you’ll ever get.


Do not, we repeat, DO NOT talk to strangers.

We know you are looking at us with disapointment because this rule is so obvious--why even list it? You will not understand the severity of this statement until somebody stops you to shake your hand, looking you in the eyes with the utmost sincerity exclaiming “Oh my, I love your shoes!” conning you into sharing an intimate anecdote about how you found them for half off at the thrift store. Next thing you know, they have subtly shifted subjects into a lengthy monologue about how NY needs more trees and asking how would you like to set up your donation plan. Huh?? You may be tricked into a good cause, or find yourself in a worse situation.

5 Things Not to Post on Social Media After Your Break-Up

You’ve just broken up with THE ONE. Now what? With social media ruling the world, we know you want to take your emotional thoughts to twitter, and showcase you post-break up life on Instagram. Well, before you start posting selfies, take a look at the 5 things you probably shouldn’t post off bat.

1. The Quote – this might be the worst, so we will start here. Whether you Google an image of a heartfelt quote from The Notebook with a beautiful ocean in the background, or you decide to be slightly innovative and type up your own quote in the “notes” section of you iPhone, it doesn’t matter. We can assure you, we don’t care. “As long as I tried, that’s what matters.” A break up is a private happening and doesn’t need to be shared with the world. (Unless you are Beyonce, then you can disregard this entire list.) Therefore, the subtle words of finalization are much less subtle than you think and they are simply a way to open the doors and invite people into your personal life.

Solidoodle Launches 3D Printer For Under $600

Many of us have heard about 3D printers and all of the cool things they can make--from furniture, to toys, even to healthcare goods, the potential seems limitless. And yet the astronomical price of the printers have limited the accessibility for many, slowing down the cool ideas that the printers can create. However, starting today (August 5th), that tide is turning, as NYC-based company, Solidoodle, has launched their very own 3D printer for under $600.

The company has taken the complexity out of 3D printing, making it easier than ever for anyone to create as their heart’s desire, and at a price point of $599 ($349 for limited quantity presale), many people can now, finally, afford to have their very own machine in their home. It is also important to note that this is not a Kickstarter project, as the new Solidoodle lineup of 3D printers is available for purchase immediately.
