Word Lens: Coolest iPhone App EVER

Gizmodo pretty much sums up the cool factor of this augmented reality app perfectly: “Holy crap. Sometimes do you almost pinch yourself, because you just can’t believe you’re witnessing such creations in your lifetime? Word Lens, which uses augmented reality to translate things in front of you, has given me that exact feeling.”

Here’s the video:

It’d be even better if they had more languages and if it worked on more than just the iPhone, don’t you think?

Introducing the Rover Hub!

We’re at it again with another sweet 4G Rover device for you to get connected with. It’s called the Rover Hub and it’s a home modem that’ll hook you up to the fastest 4G network around whenever you want it. We don’t do complicated so you won’t see any contracts or credit checks from us. The Hub itself costs $99.99 and you just pay for service when you want it at $5 a day, $20 a week or $50 a month.

The Hub is a breeze to install so don’t worry about calling the cable guy – just plug it in, connect to your computer and you’re good to go. It’s compatible with Mac & PC devices, and if you hook it up to a wireless router you can share the 4G love with up to 8 other wifi-enabled devices.

Find out more about the Hub on our website, http://rover.com and check us out on Facebook & Twitter!

Relationship Status: It’s complicated

Ok, let’s be honest. Facebook has pretty much completely changed the way we conduct our love lives.  Remember the days before it existed – when you had to pass notes in class, ask your friends to ask around and see if your crush was single, pin all your hopes on bumping into them at the locker bay or change your walking routes around school so you’d see them? …Maybe that was just me…

Seriously though, Facebook does all the dirty work for you now! You can just hop online and see for yourself whether or not your crush is taken (or at least find out through a mutual friend if you haven’t hit the friend request button yet). You can look through hundreds of tagged pictures and flirtatiously “like” their cute new profile picture. You can even send them a private message… dun dun dun! I wrote about this months ago, pondering how many people have fostered their young love in the cozy privacy of a facebook message. It’s especially interesting to think about in light of this recent study by Seventeen magazine, which said that 72% of respondents felt that “talking to someone online brings you closer to them IRL.”

It’s hard to imagine those days when we weren’t able to Facebook stalk the people we were into. And you know, as much I feel like a creep-o for saying this, I don’t know if I’d give up the capability to either! Would you?

(In)authentic white iPhone 4 is out!

And you thought you were tired of waiting for the white iPhone 4… I wonder if this kid’s gonna get sent to jail. Either that or he’ll get hired by one of Apple’s competitors for laughs. What do you think?

File this under: #crazyshit, #omgisthisthefuture, #WTF

No really though, how crazy is this!? Would you pay to see a HOLOGRAPH? Or perhaps the better question is how the hell did they do this?! I don’t even know what to say. Your thoughts?

Are you an Internet badass??

Think you’re an Internet badass or just mildly awesome online? Do your friends reallllly like your status? Are there naked pictures of you online or is that totally impossible?

This crazy quiz will tell you what your personality type is! I guess I’m a “social butterfly,” which isn’t all that surprising, right? 😉

I was totally surprised at how people answered that naked pictures question though, haha…
