If you're one of those paranoid types who worries that the iPhone 5S and its new fingerprint sensor could lead to a rash of finger amputations by would-be thieves, the below videos could offer some comfort -- or lead to even gorier nightmares.
According to Japan's Rocket News, it appears to be possible to register other uniquely "printed" parts of your body on your iPhone 5S and use them to unlock the phone. In this first demonstration, the phone is successfully unlocked with a man's nipple. He then passes the device on to his friend, and the iPhone fails to recognize his buddy's bosom. … Read more
Yesterday, some were terribly excited that Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg was finally addressing the needs of the peculiar protuberances on Wall Street.
And yet his company still seems to struggle with its attitude to peculiar protuberances that are closer to our hearts.
For Facebook's long-standing objection to nipples has claimed another victim: The New Yorker.
Yes, that familiar peddler of pornographic piffle has had been tweaked by Facebook over a rancid display of nippledom. In a cartoon. In a cartoon depicting Adam and Eve.
As they say in Cockney rhyming slang: Would you Adam-and-Eve it?
The New Yorker itself … Read more
Facebook and boobs. The parties just can't seem to get along. Be it what kinds of pictures to allow (photos of breastfeeding and mastectomies, for instance) or what kinds of campaigns to host (even breast cancer campaigns such as I like it on have been frowned upon by other breast cancer awareness campaigns), the social network can't seem to steer clear of breastly woes.
Now the removal of U.K. Facebook user Melissa Tullett's recent double mastectomy image is raising more than a few eyebrows.
The question at hand is the exact nature of Facebook's nudity … Read more
It has been established for some time that the folks at Facebook are not overly fond of nipples. Or, at least, of their public display. Or, at least, of their public display on Facebook.
Some time ago, there was much consternation over the absurdity of removing breastfeeding pictures that were displayed on Facebook pages. It seemed this week that the anti-nipple (female nipple) policy continued to be exercised with ruthless precision.

After a ton of hype and much deliberation, we finally get the official Palm Pre review from CNET Editor Bonnie Cha. She lays out all the pros and cons of the device, including the keyboard, app switching, battery life, and much, much more. Also, Jeff finally decides whether or not to buy one; tune in to hear the verdict!
We've been talking about the Palm Pre smartphone for a few weeks now, building up hype and getting excited about the release like everyone else, so we're especially excited to have Bonnie Cha come on today's show to give us her final review. If you have the time, be sure to check out her written review as well. So it turns out that she really likes the software. The multitouch is responsive (albeit with a slight lag), app-switching and push e-mail worked flawlessly, and the contact integration with Facebook, Outlook, etc. all impressed Bonnie, but don't rush out to buy it without hearing the negatives.
She also has a few complaints: as expected, the keyboard is pretty tiny and requires a rather long learning curve depending on the size of your fingers. In fact, Bonnie's got pretty small hands and even she had problems typing on it, so be sure to check one out before you buy. Next, the battery life pooped out after only one day of usage, which can be attributed partly to a faulty AIM client, but it's still something to keep in mind.
Overall, Bonnie fully recommends the phone to Sprint customers, including Jeff, who's been calling her at home to get insider's secrets since the phone was first announced. In the end, Jeff finally decides to at least go check it out on opening day, Saturday, but with no guarantees that he'll buy. No matter what phone he gets, we'll still have a great time with a live smashing of his old HTC Mogul on next week's show, so make sure to look out for that as well. Leave a comment below, though, and let us know what you think about the Palm Pre. Are you going to buy it? Is it worth the money to upgrade? Do you hate the phrase "iPhone killer" as much as the Bonch? Let's hear it.
