  7. Google’s Sergey Brin Says Using Cell Phones Is Emasculating

    If we got angry about this kind of thing we'd be angry all the time

    “When we started Google 15 years ago,” Brin says, “my vision was that information would come to you as you need it. You wouldn’t have to search query at all.” But for now, we get information by disconnecting from other people, looking down into our smartphone. Brin asks: “Is this the way you’re meant to interact with other people?” Is the future of connection just people walking around hunched up, looking down, rubbing a featureless piece of glass? In an intimate moment, he says, “It’s kind of emasculating. Is this what you’re meant to do with your body?” - Taken from the TED Blog post quoting Google's Sergey Brin on why Google Glass is totes better than a smartphone. Either that word does not mean what Brin thinks it means or he has a really bizarre outlook on technology. Dear Brin, if you truly believe your masculinity is threatened by swiping a cell phone screen, we have a few GIFs we think you should see.

    Cell phone cases have become quite the personal statement, haven't they? Whether you're looking for form, fashion, or function, there's something out there for everyone. Just the other day we showed you some DC and Marvel character cases but today we bring you something very...different. Designer Elliot Gorham of Noddy Boffin has created the perfect iPhone case for people who are really, really into lobster. Practical? Not in the least. You can barely use any of the functions of the phone while the case is on so this is purely a fashion statement, or maybe a culinary one. Let's not stop here, let's push the boundaries further. I'll take a life-size kangaroo case, please. (via Mashable) Are you following The Mary Sue on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Pinterest, & Google +?

  10. Reward For Not Texting In A Theater? There’s An App For That.

    Almost Totally Excellent

    At a recent trip to the theater I was greeted with two things; one was a message from the chain asking us not to use our cellphones during the show, another was a paid advertisement that talked about texting during a movie as if it were ok. Needless to say, while I assume most people are against cell phone usage of any kind during a film, there are those out there who think it's ok. But a new app aims to reward customers for good behavior. Will it work?
