A disgusted mom posted a very creepy baby onesie and the internet is not into it

TwitterFacebook

We all know where babies come from…no need to put it in writing and make them wear it. 

Mumsnet user, Jarhead123, posted a photo of a baby onesie that will surely give you the creeps.

The user of the UK parenting site commented, “Am I being unreasonable to think this babygrow is awful? Cringe!”

Though it is unclear what store this questionable onesie is from, it is not the only of its kind. When you search this phrase in particular, other retailers sell their own version of the bodysuit. And there are plenty of more yikes-worthy, sexualized sayings on baby clothes.  Read more…

Twitter embraces its combative side in its most honest ad campaign yet

TwitterFacebook

Twitter is notorious for its fight club atmosphere. More than any other social network, it’s a place where users don’t hold back in debating one another, whether they be the president of the United States or a blank avatar with five followers.

While that environment can easily veer into harassment or intimidate prospective users, it has some upsides too. That’s why Twitter is embracing it warts-and-all in a new ad campaign called #SeeEverySide.

The three ads feature strangers arguing about the a heat wave, GOAT sport stars, and Chance the Rapper’s catalog—the same kinds of conversations you might see on the platform everyday.  Read more…

iOS 11 on the iPhone will upgrade your everyday experience

TwitterFacebook

iOS 11 is coming.

This fall, iPhones and iPads will get the latest version of Apple’s mobile software, first unveiled earlier in June. Developers have had access to a beta preview of iOS 11 since then, but on Monday it becomes available as a public beta. That means anyone who wants it can get it, but be forewarned: It’s not fully baked yet.

For iOS 11, Apple put a lot of focus on the iPad, and there are a plethora of new features that take the tablet — and the iPad Pro especially — to a new level of productivity.

But just because iOS 11 puts the spotlight on Apple’s tablets doesn’t mean there’s nothing to look forward to on your iPhone. There are a whole lot of improvements to the stuff you do every day. Read more…

iOS 11 is about to radically change the iPad for the better

TwitterFacebook

Apple’s iPad isn’t getting the same kind of love from consumers it enjoyed in its early days. Perhaps that’s a why Apple is now lavishing it with so much attention. 

iOS 11, which enters public beta today, is a love letter to the tablet, giving it the kind of radical makeover no longer possible (or at least expected) through hardware redesign.

SEE ALSO: Future iPhones and iPads might have a special chip just for processing AI

I’ve owned an iPad since the very first model, used every iteration since, including the more powerful iPad Pros, and run every iOS on them since iOS 5. Nothing, however, prepared me for iOS 11 on an iPad Pro 10.5. Read more…

Youngest Solange fan finally gets to FaceTime with her celebrity idol

TwitterFacebook

The magic of Twitter is real, dreams really do come true, and sometimes your heroes are just as great as you hope they will be.

The little Solange Knowles fan who won a lot of internet fame last week for pretending to FaceTime the musician actually got the chance to video chat with the real deal.

After the teeny fan’s father posted a video of his daughter, Ghazi, pretending to FaceTime the singer, Solange tweeted a picture of her on FaceTime with the young fan (for real, this time) just a few hours later.
