!! OMG, the future is here: iPhone Cruising !!

I remember watching QueerTV secretly at midnight in my room when I was in high school and IRSHAD MANJI did a piece about gadgets that gays could wear to locate each other in a crowd – kind of like little metal detectors that beeped the closer you got to another gay with the device. I wanted one so bad.
Well now the next generation of cruising technology has arrived:

We’ve seen a handful of dating applications that cater to the straight community, and today brings the launch of GRINDR (iTunes Link), one of the first iPhone applications geared towards gay and bisexual men.

While privacy is an issue for all location based social networks, it is of the utmost importance on gay networks. Without proper security measures, bigots could easily download such applications and use them to pinpoint targets for hateful slurs and potentially even violence. Grindr deals with these issues by obscuring a user’s absolute location by default. Rather than plotting each user on the map. Grindr displays how far away they are (distances can range from a few feet to miles away).

!! OMG, he’s a Qik’er: Ashton Kutcher !!

Ashton Kutcher is so all over user-generated content. He YOUTUBES, TWITTERS, and of course makes television shows starring himself.
As if that wasn’t enough, I just found out he also Qiks. QIK is a site where you can stream video from your phone live to your profile. I’m surprised his mom allows this. What? That’s not his mom?
I went to the site earlier today and I happened to catch him broadcasting live from southern France while people were making live comments. So strange. Taking voyeurism to a whole new level!

!! OMG, how eligible: Chris Hughes !!

chris-hughes-cover.jpg
Chris Hughes deserves a break. After having made millions as a co-founder of Facebook, and helping change the world for the better by masterminding Barack Obama’s online campaign, the baby-faced Harvard grad has already accomplished more in his 25 years than most people could even dream of doing. Fast Company ponders his future in their current issue, but the one important question that OMG would put forward about this out-and-proud whiz kid: Does he have a boyfriend? (via Gawker)
After the jump, watch an old video of Chris (sporting Corbin Fisheresque surfer hair) describing what exactly this new-fangled Facebook technology is all about.

[[ OMG, there’s more: JUMP IN to read the rest ]]

!! OMG, it’s so easy: Quitting Smoking !!


Forget the patch, just smoke Smarties! But not the chocolate Smarties (SMARTIES in the US are sold as Rockets here in Canada). Or do you wanna look cool but don’t want to actually take up smoking? Just smoke candy! Pressured to smoke drugs? Just smoke candy!

!! OMG, he’s a dad: 13-Year-Old !!

kiddaddy.jpg
4-foot-tall 13-year-old father Alfie Patten doesn’t know how much diapers cost for his newborn baby. He did, however, know how to put his penis into his 15-year-old girlfriend until the juicies came out. At 13 I thought sex was wrapping toilet paper around your neck. I was a bit behind. Then again, by 15 I had a dick in my mouth, so things can move pretty quick I guess.
