Website Lets You ‘Call a Deplorable’… or ‘Call an Elitist’

q-100

The final presidential debate was last night, and while we’re going to refrain from making any commentary about it, we can’t help but be amused by a pair of websites created by former Facebook product manager Alexandre Roche in anticipation for the event. They’re called CallADeplorable.com and CallAnElitist.com, and they work like this: if you’re a Hillary Clinton supporter and feel the desire to have a, uh, levelheaded conversation about the issues with a die-hard Trump supporter, you can visit ‘Call a Deplorable’, enter your phone number and wait until the system matches you up with someone from the other side. The same idea works the other way: if you’re a die-hard Trump supporter, you can visit ‘Call an Elitist’ and wait to be connected with a Hillary supporter. Your actual phone numbers are kept anonymous, just in case you’re matched up with someone interested in doing a little more than having a simple phone conversation. You should know that you might have to wait a while until you’re matched up, because it all depends on demand. Still, if you’re so convinced your candidate is the right choice and can’t figure out why the opposite side just can’t see it your way, you now have a simple way to ask them directly.

Deal of The Day: 47% Off On SelectTV, 1-Yr Subscription

selecttv-1

Like fax machines, cable service is a technology from another era. You have to sit there and be told what you’re going to watch, and when. Your only control involves watching something else altogether by switching channels, and if there’s nothing on, well, tough luck. Cord cutters realized this a long time ago, and to help you take that plunge, services like SelectTV exist.

More and more people are cutting the cable cord and looking to alternative TV and movie viewing methods. Netflix and Hulu are cool, but only one service offers all the perks of both cable and web-based streaming–while simultaneously dwarfing any other library. That’s SelectTV, where you can access over 300,000 TV episodes, 200,000 movies, 50,000 radio stations, and 5,000 live channels all from the same, simple browser interface. There are many reasons to cut the cord, but none are as convincing as SelectTV.

Featured in USA Today, Forbes, The Huffington Post, Inc., Yahoo! Finance, and Digital Trends

– Access a massive library of TV shows, movies, live channels, radio stations & more from over 150 countries
– Watch unlimited video on demand from any device

New Service Texts Game Of Throne Spoilers To Your Enemies

Screen Shot 2016-06-23 at 7.00.05 AM

Someone piss you off lately? There’s lots of things you can do to get back at them, but none of these more cruel than using Spoiled.io on them. It’s a service that will ruthlessly text the latest Game of Thrones spoilers to your intended victim; you simply have to enter a phone number and pay $0.99. It’s a form of cruelty so raw and and unconscionable that we literally think the folks behind the service have to be possessed by Satan. Or something. Ok, granted, there’s only one episode left this season, so June 26th is kind of your cutoff date. But don’t you think ruining the season finale should make up for that friend bailing on your camping plans last week?

Top 3 Websites Your Business Should Know By Now

As the old saying goes, “Knowledge is power.” In the world of business, anything that can help you beat the competition is worth knowing. Whether that’s increasing efficiency in file sharing, wanting info on a current domain name, or knowing where to hire the best employees, there are certain websites you should be aware of, and here are the three we believe are the most useful.

Google Docs

You might have heard of a little search engine called Google, but did you know about their convenient file editing program? Google Docs is a cloud-based word processor that allows for individuals to create and edit online documents, spreadsheets, and presentations – all in real time and for free. With all the files saved and stored within Google Drive, Google Docs is perfect for employees working on a project in different locations, and will streamline your workflow in a way not many other programs can.

Facebook Launches Feature That Limits Past And Future Posts When You Break Up

facebook-breakup-options

So, things didn’t work out. It sucks, but it doesn’t mean you have to go all Scorched Earth and block the poor person from Facebook. But then again, maybe you don’t want them knowing what you’re up to now, and the idea of them still being able to view your past posts makes you uneasy. Well now there’s a simple solution to that, courtesy of Facebook. They’ve launched a feature where you can easily limit past and future posts when you change your status to Single. With just a few button presses, you can quickly decide how much or how little of you your past beau/belle will be able to see. Given Facebook’s spotty past on privacy, it’s nice to see these kinds of features being released.

Looie Lets You Pee In Peace

looie

Nothing is more frustrating than being out, needing to pee, and having nowhere to go. Cops can fine you for public urination, not to mention it’s a little gross to relieve yourself on other people’s property, so we can totally see a place for a service like Looie. It uses a location-aware app as well as a dongle to give you access to the nearest restroom that’s part of its network. Currently about to launch in Tribeca only, the founder guarantees clean facilities every time (going as far as cleaning them himself for now). It’s going to cost you $25 per month for the service, which is money well spent if you’ve found yourself in that unenviable position more often than you’d care to admit. There is no word on expansion outside of Tribeca for now, but we suspect that’s going to be highly dependant on initial demand.

How-to-unlock-Samsung-Galaxy-S6

The following article is brought to you by Unlockunit.com. -Ed.

Let’s face it, when it comes to smartphones, the best one you can get right now is the Samsung Galaxy S6 or S6 Edge. Since last year’s flagship, the S5 wasn’t exactly what fans were expecting, the South Korean manufacturer had to come up with their best phone ever. And guess what? They did.

After craving for it since the launch, you finally got your hands on it. No matter if you bought it or received it, your brand new Samsung is just one step behind achieving the “perfect phone” status.

It’s not something related to it specs, as we’re talking about the fact that it’s carrier locked. That’s right, you can’t use it in the network you want and this can be a bit frustrating. But what if we told you that you can unlock it in just a few minutes and give it some well-deserved freedom?

This Restaurant Encourages And Teaches Proper Instagramming Of Your Food

foodography-1

If you’re like any normal North American, you’ve snapped pics of your food and posted them on Instagram. Good on you, although we hope this trend dies soon. Regardless of how we feel about it, it’s interesting to note at least one restaurant is embracing the practice wholeheartedly. Israeli restaurant Catit, in partnership with Carmel Winery, have launched a project called Foodography that provides the restaurant’s patrons with special plates designed for Instagram photography. One plate is called The Limbo, and features a slot for your smartphone on one end, and a curved backdrop on the other. Another plate is called The 360 and has a rotating plate as well as a smartphone slot, to allow you to shoot short video clips. If these accessories are not enough to create the perfect shot, the restaurant occasionally invites top food photographer Dan Perez to teach some workshops on the art. The entire experience costs $155 an hour, and should run through June. Of course you’ll have to add airfare if you’re not, you know, in Israel, although Carmel Winery does have plans to expand the experience to many of its international locations.
