BroApp, An App For Automatically Texting Your Partner

broapp-automatic-girlfriend-texter.jpg BroApp is a $ 2 Android app that instantly sends prewritten text to your sweetheart so she thinks you’re a mindful boyfriend instead of the sad piece of spunk you actually are. Likewise– darl? Who the hell calls their sweetheart, darl? I would break up with you for calling me that. Or asking, ‘Hey babe, exactly what’s finishing with you today?” WHAT ‘S DOING WITH ME TODAY? I’m breaking up with my f *** ing idiot sweetheart, that’s exactly what.

BroApp enables users to ‘outsource their relationships’ and spend more time with ‘the bros’ by sending out automated romantic texts to a partner’s phone … partners make up a variety of texts, which can be timed to be sent automatically on a certain day, even if he is busy delighting in the company of his male good friends. The makers claim that “BroApp leverages sophisticated algorithms to intelligently determine the very best time to send a text to your partner”. Guys are likewise asked to recognize their girlfriend’s WiFi network, so that his cover won’t be blown by pre-written texts being sent out to her while he is at her home. If the user has just recently texted or called his girlfriend “in reality”, or she has actually recently contacted him, texts arranged by the app are canceled so as not to excite suspicion that he is using a computerized service.

First of all, if you’re not attentive enough to occasionally write your partner, perhaps you should not be in a relationship. Secondly, if you’re actually making use of an app to text your partner so you can “spend more time with the bros”, you could be in love with guys. Finally, exactly what happens when she gets your, “Hey babe, how was your day?” text AND THEN ANSWERS? Why did you ask exactly how my day was and afterwards not say anything after I reacted? Due to the fact that to me that appears even worse than not texting in the very first place (although I’ve never ever had a sweetheart so I do not know but occasionally I do call my home line and speak with my pet dog through the answering device). Keep choosing a video.

biff-in-manure.jpg

In case you didn’t require an additional reason to not text and drive, a guy in Wisconsin crashed into a manure truck while “finishing texting and talking on his phone.” Well damn, multitasker! Where ‘d you discover ways to speak and text and crash all at the exact same time?

The Constable’s Department stated Matthew Bruhn, 37, was driving a Ford Mustang convertible that he rented from Avis.

The driver of the tractor was not seriously hurt. Bruhn was treated for a damaged finger.

Did I discuss the truck was holding FLUID manure. That resembles, the worst kind as far as I’m worried. And I am VERY concerned. Sadly, dude didn’t in fact break the holding tank and have it spill into his convertible like we ‘d all hoped. Now THAT– that would have created some solid anti-texing and driving billboards. Something like ‘When you text and drive, shit happens. FLUID SPUNK. That’s the worst kind. Eyes on the road.’.

This message offered you by D. Jones Manure Hauling.

Thanks to Ali and Pyrblaze, who never ever text and drive due to the fact that they’re always chauffeured. That’s my dream world.

Werner Herzog directs documentary on dangers of texting and driving for It Can Wait campaign

Werner Herzog directs documentary on dangers of texting and driving for It Can Wait campaign

AT&T recently recruited none other than Werner Herzog to direct some short videos for the “It Can Wait” campaign to curb texting and driving, but their collaboration hasn’t ended there. The campaign, which also has the backing of Verizon, Sprint, and T-Mobile, has today released a 35-minute documentary by the legendary German filmmaker that delves further into the first-hand accounts of texting and driving dangers seen in the 30-second spots. Titled “From One Second to the Next,” the documentary is freely available online, and is also being distributed to more than 40,000 high schools and number of safety organizations and government agencies in the US.

As the Canadian Press reports, Herzog said that the project “immediately clicked and connected inside of me” when AT&T proposed it to him, adding, “there’s a completely new culture out there. I’m not a participant of texting and driving — or texting at all — but I see there’s something going on in civilization which is coming with great vehemence at us.” You can watch the full documentary after the break or on the It Can Wait website.

ZERO F***S GIVEN: Guy In Saudi Arabia Texting FROM HOOD OF CAR While Cruising Down Highway At 60MPH

texting-while-driving.jpg

Is the car even full?

This is a video from Saudi Arabia of some guy on the hood of a car casually texting while cruising down the highway at speeds around 60MPH. That seems dangerous. It reminds me of that video of the guy laying down on his motorcycle and texting. I just don’t get it. Of all the ways to die, in the street with my phone in my hand is not at the top of my list. “What is?” In the arms of my lover, in my sleep. “Awwwww, but what about when she wakes up and freaks out because you’re dead?” NOT MY PROBLEM.

Hit the jump for the WTF video.

Powerful EU competition chief is not above texting Google’s Schmidt

P0163660102_large

Joaquin Almunia’s position as the European competition commissioner makes him one of the most powerful men in tech. Companies like Google and Microsoft have persistently lodged complaints against each other, and it’s down the the European Commission (EC) to ascertain what needs to be done. Although he relies on a large team of high-ranking officials and advisors to support him, Almunia has the final say in what action the EC will take.

Despite his power, Almunia remains extremely open to communication from tech companies. In a New York Times profile, the paper reveals the commissioner “sometimes sends [Google Chairman] Eric Schmidt a text,” quoting Almunia saying he has an “open phone line, or email line, or SMS line at any moment.”…

The dangers posed by texting while driving a car have been well documented, and the risks have caused many areas in the US to outlaw the practice. But the dangers of texting while flying have remained out of the headlines — until now. The US National Transportation Safety has recovered evidence that a commercial helicopter pilot was texting before a 2011 crash that killed him and three passengers, the first time texting has been found to occur during a fatal air accident, Bloomberg reported.

PLZ HELP: Emergency Texting To 911 Available By 2014

texting-to-911.jpg.

Since no one suches as speaking on the phone, the 4 biggest cellular phone providers have actually agreed to make texting to 911 readily available by May 15th, 2014. Not gonna lie, I already thought they accepted texts and were simply disregarding me. ‘DELIVER AMBULANCE, HOT SAUCE TOO SPICY.’.

” Access to 911 must catch up with how customers interact in the 21st century– and today, we are one action closer towards that essential objective” said FCC chairman Julius Genachowsk.

As soon as the carriers are set up, local emergency response centers will certainly still need the correct equipment, software and exercise, so the function will not be offered instantaneously. Nevertheless, at some point the carriers and FCC expect to offer 90 % of the populace with text-to-911 features. The solution will not support third-party texting applications or roaming individuals.

In the meantime, the providers will carry out a much-needed alert message warning anybody who delivers a text to 911 that their message was not gotten, and that they should make a phone call instead. That auto-reply system will be up and running by June 30, 2013.

.

No word if 911 operators will need to take classes in text-speak to understand exactly what the hell individuals are attempting to say, however based upon the idiotic text messages I get from my buddies I picture it’s probably a good concept.

GW: HLP I FELL OFF THE SPACE.
911: Room?
GW: ROOFING, BRK EVRYTHING PLZ ASSIST.
911: Please remain calm, what’s your address?
GW: 1410 Mockingbird Drive.
911: We just dispatched an unit.
GW: However I’m at a buddy’s location right now.
911: And just what’s the address there?
GW: \* cat image \*.

That’s how I’m gonna die, I’m calling it. No– texting it PIZAZZ! “No zing.” Absolutely no zests, got it.

Thanks to key11 and Denise, who call for support the old made method: ASSIST! ANYBODY, ASSIST! CAN ANYBODY HEAR ME? HEEEEEEEEELP!.
