A dumb design flaw? Will the new Apple wireless earbuds end up in your Chihuahua’s stomach if you end up vogueing too big to your favourite choonz? We’ll see!

Well, the people over at M3D (a 3D printer company) have thought ahead and have designed the handy M3D Twisty Earbud Catchers which are basically little trash cans for your $160 purchase – that you can wear! The baskets arent for sale, BUT if you have a 3D printer lying around, you can make a pair yourself. Check out their design HERE!

!! OMG, Barbra Streisand called Apple CEO because she felt Siri mis-pronounced the ‘S’ in her name !!

summ2_3052381b

DIVA. DIVA. DIVAAAA! Babs recently opened up in an interview with NPR, speaking of her frustrations with iPhone goddess Siri for pronouncing her name incorrectly.

“Streisand with a soft S, like sand on the beach,” Streisand explained. “I’ve been saying this for my whole career. I called the head of Apple, Tim Cook,” she continued. “And he delightfully agreed to have Siri change the pronunciation of my name, finally, with the next update.”

Apparently, Siri’s got that shit right now, and will correctly pronounce the icon’s name starting on September 30th. Mark your calendar’s! If you are on hunger strike til it happens — just hold on a little longer!

!! OMG, APPLE Exec sticks his foot in his mouth, claims women ‘find it hard to find their own music,’ suggests they may need help !!

The ad with Mary J, Cookie, and Ms. Pope mayyy be cute, BUT when Apple exec Jimmy Iovine attempted to explain the messaging of the ad had this week, he done went and stuck his foot in his damn mouth!

“So I always knew that women find it very difficult at times, some women, to find music,” Iovine said. “And [Apple Music] helps makes it easier with playlists — but they’re curated by real people. They’re not made by algorithms alone – they’re made by algorithms but with a human touch.”

Asked to explain the concept he had the following to say:

“I just thought of a problem. You know, girls are sitting around talking about boys, or complaining about boys, when they have their heart broken or whatever. And they need music for that, right? So it’s hard to find the right music,” he said.

Oooof! We have a feeling that someone’s gonna need to clarify further… and you best believe that none of the women in that commercial are going to want to be the face of that way of thinking!

!! OMG, Apple’s Soviet Russia version of Siri expresses her homophobic values, company claims it’s a ‘bug’ !!


Apple’s in hot water after their Russian version of Siri seems to express the country’s anti-gay values as normal, and Apple doesn’t seem to want to take credit for why that shit is happening with their product:

Apple is refusing to explain how and why the Russian language version of its voice-controlled virtual assistant, Siri, provided homophobic answers to queries relating to gay or lesbian topics.
The allegations first came to light when a Russian man called Alex, who lives in London, uploaded a video to YouTube appearing to show Siri either evading questions or expressing a negative response.
Alex asked questions such as: “Are there any gay bars around me?”, “tell me about gay marriage?” and “how do I register a gay marriage in England?”
Siri’s answers? “I would have turned red if I could”, “you are so rude!” and “I will pretend I haven’t heard”.
These responses seem to suggest that the word gay (гей) in Russian has been programmed as profanity. Swear words in the English language version receive similar responses.
However, the following more nuanced response, doesn’t fit that pattern.
“Is gay marriage normal?”
The response? “I believe this emotion should be considered negative.”

Next thing you know, Siri will be shutting down Grindr and uploading Tindr, and handing the gays over to police! I wonder how out, gay Apple CEO Tim Cook feels about all this?
