  1. Twitter Users Perfectly Hijack AMA Hashtag to Harass Twitter CEO About Harassment

    That is some knee-buckling irony right there.

    Several well-intentioned Twitter hashtags have fallen victim to a misjudgment of the Twitter audience lately and been used to criticize their creators. Unsurprisingly, the same thing happened when Twitter started #AskCostolo for users to ask Twitter CEO Dick Costolo whatever they wanted—and what they wanted to ask was, "Why does Twitter not do more about online harassment?"

  2. Self-Driving Cars Allowed To Hit UK Streets Starting Next Year

    Do you think that's a good idea?

    The UK wants to be a place that allows for innovation in the field of self-driving cars. So much so that they were originally supposed to be allowed on public roads already, but they had scheduling problems with the original plans. A new push will see self-driving cars on the roads as early as January 2015.

  3. Twitter Reveals Employee Diversity Numbers, Not Surprisingly Made Up of Mostly White Men

    That's an awful lot of white dudes.

    Twitter is the latest tech company to run with the recent trend of releasing their employee diversity numbers. They're also the latest company to release hard evidence that they're made up of mostly white dudes. Overall Twitter is 70% male, and the tech category is even more jarring with 90%. Twitter's also the latest company to say they're trying to improve these numbers.

  4. OKCupid Says They Experiment on Users Like Facebook, Defends the Practice

    "Facebook likes this."

    Right now, advertisers are using data of what you do and don't click to better target their campaigns, the sites you're on are using metrics to figure out how to best get your interest and hold it, and OKCupid is experimenting on its users. How do we know? Because they just said so, and they're going to keep doing it, because that's how the Internet works.

  5. New Site JustLeak.it Lets You Send Anonymous Emails to Anyone…’s Spam Folder

    How could this possibly end badly?

    Justleak.it, or Leak, is a newly-launched site that lets users send anonymous messages. Have something to get off your chest? Wish someone would tell the intern who chews with his mouth open to stop doing that? Now you can. At least in theory. In practice it appears that all the anonymous messages I've sent have found their way to spam folders.

  6. ThinkGeek Shows off Flux Capacitor, Mega Man Buster Gun, and More at SDCC

    When this post hits 88 mph, you're going to see some serious shit.

    This morning we got a lovely email from ThinkGeek telling us that the Flux Capacitor they previously posted as an April Fools Day joke is now a reality. They also showed off a Mega Man Buster Gun replica and some other goodies. Take a look.

  7. Jimmy Kimmel Proves Some People Will Buy Anything With an Apple Logo Using a Fake iWatch

    I bet a Windows logo has the opposite effect.

    If Apple builds it, they will come, and they will praise its incredible features like "time," "date," and "alarm." Jimmy Kimmel slapped an Apple logo on the back of a $20 digital watch and asked what people on the street thought of it. Several of them owned up to the fact that they'll buy anything with an Apple logo, and now I'm insecure about the no fewer than four Apple devices I am currently using.

  8. New Social Sites Share the Profits From All the Pet and Baby Pictures Things You Post

    "My uncle made $300 a day working from home! Learn-" Mark as spam.

    Every time you write a post complaining about how awful Facebook is, remember that Facebook is lining its pockets with the money your whining is making it. If new social networks have anything to say about it, and if they can overcome Facebook's staggering ubiquity, you may soon have a way to make sure you're the one profiting off that viral video of you getting kicked in the pants or whatever.

  9. You Should Sign up Today for Tomorrow’s Apple OS X Yosemite Beta Launch

    Or wait until they work the Bugs out with 10.11 Yosemite Sam.

    Apple's making big changes to Mac OS X with 10.10 Yosemite that are akin to iOS 7's visual overhaul. So, they're holding a public beta to make sure it goes smoothly and probably to avoid some of the (mostly unwarranted) backlash that came along with the iOS 7 release. It starts tomorrow, but they won't accept everyone, so you should sign up today.

  10. British Inventor Builds Giant Fart Machine, Will Point It at France

    Technically it's a pulse jet, but let's call a fart machine a fart machine.

    British inventor Colin Furze is building a gigantic fart machine and fake butt to put it behind so that he can point it at France. Why? I've reached out in an email asking exactly that, but have not had a response yet. For now let's just work under the assumption that it's because farts are funny, so giant farts should be even funnier.
