What If The Eggplant Emoji Was A Gay Horror Movie?

One of the most interesting things about living in the digital age is that way that technology has transformed how we communicate — including the way that we sext. Emojis have changed the game when it comes to talking to friends, family members and loved ones. The eggplant emoji, for example, is often used as a stand-in for the lack of an official penis emoji — especially among gay men when they send sexually explicit texts to each other. In this latest video from Davey Wavey, the gay YouTuber teams up with fellow YouTuber Machaizelli to present ” The Eggplant Emoji YouTube Trailer ,” a spoof on classic horror movie trailers, centered around miscommunication regarding the eggplant emoji and what it really represents.

Your Phone Is Likely the Reason for These Bad Habits

Last year I lost my phone on a trip to China. I’d lost it before I’d even gotten off the plane actually, and I spent two weeks exploring the country without it. I enjoyed the concept of phone-free living so much that I didn’t bother getting a new one when I got home. I then wrote about my experience in this post . The story got picked up by a national radio station and I was interviewed 19 times to talk about what it was like to live without a phone. People seemed to be really interested.

If You Don’t ‘Like’ What I Wrote on Facebook You Can Emoji Me

My mouse used to hover and hesitate. How could I “like” a Facebook post that was sad or tragic or pointing out an injustice? I could have commented, but that would take time and make me read comments from people I don’t know. Still, “like” didn’t capture what I really wanted to say. I guess Mark Zuckerberg saw my dilemma, because he just added an array of emojis to Facebook.

This Is What It’s Like To Live In San Francisco If You’re Not A Billionaire Startup Founder

Daniel Zapien dug pools for startup founders who were rising stars in Silicon Valley, and filled in pools for the ones whose companies had gone bust. Mike Sandoval valeted tech workers’ cars. Cecilia Chavez cleaned their sprawling houses, and Anthony King sold them crack from a homeless encampment. Their stories are the ones that rarely surface when people talk about the center of the tech industry. De-Bug: Voices from the Underside of Silicon Valley , a book released last month, tries to change that. It shares a few dozen short and often funny accounts written by young people who have struggled to get by in the Bay Area, offering a raw look into the lives of residents bearing the brunt of gentrification

Rival Phone Makers Reluctant To Support Apple In FBI Battle

MUMBAI/SINGAPORE (Reuters) – As Apple Inc resists the U.S. government in a high profile stand-off over privacy, rival device makers are, for now, keeping a low profile. Most are Asian companies – the region produces eight of every 10 smartphones sold around the world – and operate in a complex legal, political and security landscape. Only China’s Huawei has publicly backed Apple CEO Tim Cook in his fight to resist demands to unlock an encrypted iPhone belonging to one of those who went on a shooting rampage in San Bernardino, California in December. “We put a lot of investment into privacy, and security protection is key.
