It’s time for some change. To those of you who are bored and want a brand new phone cover, you’re in luck! OMG iPhone Cases is teaming up with Crushable to give FIVE of you a new phone case. Not … More
Lena Dunham loves The New Yorker with all her kale eating, Obama voting, brownstone Brooklyn heart, so it stands to reason that she’d jump at the chance to make an ad for the magazine’s new iPhone app. And what a strange ad it is. More
Hey girls! Like the Zooey Deschanel Siri ad but wish she had an equally adorkable brother for you to fantasize about? You’re in luck. More
The biggest new feature of the brand-new iPhone 4S is, without a doubt, Siri. Siri, you see, is like your personal assistant, only better, because you can carry her around in your pocket. You can ask her to call people and she’ll do it; texting, ditto; if you need directions, she can do that; hell, just about anything you need, she can find a solution for you. In fact, you can carry out whole conversations with Siri.
This got me thinking. Whole conversations? What would Siri be like in a place where questions and answers really matter? Like, say… on a date?
So I did just that. I dressed Siri up and I took her out to her favorite restaurant, and we attempted to get to know each other a little better. How did it go? Well… More
Y’all, I have a confession: I’ve got a big old lady crush on singer-songwriter Rachael Yamagata. Like a serious one. I took her photo to my hairstylist once and was like, “This, please!” It looked terrible! Sigh. Anyway, Rachael’s got a new record coming out in October, and she just released the cover art, which was shot on the iPhone app Camera+. More
Talking Heads founder David Byrne is perpetually up to something cool. If he’s not singing backing vocals on Arcade Fire records or writing his New York Times column about cycling (seriously), he’s creating wry and topical art. His latest offering is this series of fake iPhone apps which will be seen in a group show called “Social Media” alongside works by artists including Miranda July and Christopher Baker.
Hey you — yeah, you, the girl posting photos taken in the mirror with your iPhone. Beware how public you make your “candid” Facebook self-portraits, because Slacktory may choose you to add to their hall of fame, where they Photoshop in a NSFW accessory like a douche or a dead baby. Now that we’ve given you fair warning, laugh at the people who were unable to avoid this embarrassing fate — especially because the objects that Slacktory has chosen are so wrong they’re just right for the people who snapped the photos.

“The iBoobies is both an iPhone case and an iPhone stand.” Great! I already have both of those things and neither needs to be taken in for a yearly mammogram. Are you guys aroused right now? I bet you guys are totally around right now. More
iPhone users: Did you know that your phone has been tracking everywhere you’ve been since June of 2010? Because it has. And it wants everyone to know it.
The Guardian reports that every detail about your phone’s movement is saved in a secret file on the phone itself;then, once you’ve synchronized your phone with your computer, the file is copied over to your hard drive as well. The coordinates are recorded in the form of latitude and longitude, and there’s a timestamp to go along with them– so not only does your phone know where you’ve been, it knows exactly when you were there. This is weird enough on its own, but you know what makes it even weirder? If your phone or your computer are stolen, the thief could hypothetically unearth this information quite easily. More
Let’s face it: Smartphones are terrifying. I mean, they do all of these things for us, they ask for nothing in return, and yet we blithely hand over our lives to them fully knowing that one day they could possibly become self-aware like Skynet and take over the world? What is WRONG with us? Oh, wait, I know: Smartphones also give us the illusion that we are more powerful than we actually are. This must be why there are so many apps out that there let us experience the power usually only available to gods. Feel like trying it yourself? Here are the best apps to play god with, both in real life and in games, on the market: More
This is an image of Perez Hilton looking inside a tin can that holds tiny Kardashians with mermaid tails. It’s part of an iPhone app that evidently contains a whole bunch of photographs of celebrities dressed as first-act Ariels. Not quite as interactive as Angry Birds, but we suppose you can poke and prod them on your screen all you want. More
