    Google Maps has removed a feature that informed users how many calories they could burn by walking, which took the form of counting how many cupcakes would be burned off based on the distance, following complaints by users that claimed it was “triggering.” According to the Telegraph, “Users have reacted badly to cupcake metric on social media describing it as ‘shaming’ and some saying it could be a trigger for people suffering from eating disorders.” In a post on Twitter, Taylor Lorenz, a reporter for the Hill and Mic, called the feature “triggering.” “I guess Google maps now automatically shows...

    Tawfiq catapulted to fame when he took time out of his day job as a business analyst last year to develop an anonymous messaging tool called Sarahah -- honesty in Arabic -- that subsequently topped the charts for app downloads. Initially conceived as a tool for soliciting bluntly frank workplace feedback, Sarahah has found its way into the smartphones of millennials worldwide, even as critics have raised alarm about trolling and privacy issues. it is built on the premise that stripping users of their identity promotes ruthless honesty. "Feedback is the goal -- anonymous feedback."

    Video game reviewers at Touch Arcade stumbled upon a sick new game app that will allow players to kill unborn babies in abortions. The “Abortion Simulator” is being developed by Kierun Studios, a company based in India that has a reputation for reprehensible games, according to the review. The game “will put you right in the middle of the surgery room and let you perform various abortions,” from early-term to “24+ week complex cases,” the developer describes. It appears that players actually will use surgical tools to reach into the womb and tear the unborn baby out in pieces. Screen...

    The manufactured threat of fake news and the constant changes to Facebook and Twitter algorithms has, as I predicted, forced the free markets to fight back. A new app has blazed onto the scene with the ability to restore your ability to post without fear of reprisal from reckless algorithms dictating what you should see and share. It is Called the Candid App and they asked me to to give it a look. So I did… and I have to tell you I am hooked. VIDEO

    Chick-fil-A is rolling out a new app that will let customers avoid waiting in line at the register. The app, called Chick-fil-A One, will allow customers to order and pay for their food in advance, then pick it up at a counter designated for online orders. That's big news for fans of Chick-fil-A, which is typically slammed with customers during regular meal times, making long lines inevitable. The app will also allow users to customize and save their favorite orders. Michael Lage, a veteran of Facebook and Google who helped develop the app, says it will change how customers, particularly...

    Because Netflix doesn’t own the global licensing rights to all of the movies and TV shows it carries, a good deal of its programming remains completely unavailable to subscribers outside of certain geographic regions. Indeed, one of the reasons why Netflix is so intent on developing its own original programming is precisely because they don’t have to deal with thorny licensing issues. Now if you find yourself in the frustrating position of wanting to watch something on Netflix that is otherwise geographically restricted, there’s a new desktop app that can help turn that dream into a reality.

Data exchanged through many of the apps can be intercepted by attackers and shared with third parties because of weak security practices.

    An app featuring news from outlawed terror group The Afghan Taliban is available for download on The Google Play Store, The Foreign Desk has discovered. It offers users access to the latest news, official statements, propaganda videos and songs from the authorized website of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan.

    It generated controversy and criticism when word of it first broke back in October, even though Peeple, a people-rating mobile app that was likened to being the "Yelp for people," hadn't launched yet. Now, after a number of tweaks to the concept, the people-rating app finally launched today. Peeple is available to download for free for iPhones or iPads. The app, which was created by two friends in Calgary, Canada, allows users to rate other users in three categories: personal, professional, and romantic. The idea is to provide "a reference check for the people around us," the creators say on...

    eing pregnant in 2015 is a constant exercise in cognitive dissonance. At 16 weeks along, if I eat deli meat, dip a toe in a hot tub, or order an espresso at Starbucks, then I’m already a bad mom who’s putting her baby at risk. But if I decide that said baby has come at an inconvenient time or has too high a risk of having an undesirable medical condition, then I am a responsible woman who should be praised and supported for making the tough decision to dispose of the unwanted products of conception that have invaded my body....

    When Tim Cook, the powerful CEO of Apple, bravely announced he was opposed to Indiana’s Religious Freedom Restoration Act, he urged others to follow. “Opposing discrimination takes courage,” Cook wrote. Meanwhile back in the real world, an Indiana TV reporter somehow found herself on camera, asking a pizzeria owner if she would be willing to cater a gay wedding. You have to wonder how that happened. Did someone alert the reporter that the owner was a committed evangelical? Did she troll the donut shops and pizza parlors of Indiana until she found someone willing to say something really brave: No...
