Chrysler Invented a New Car That Takes Selfies For You

It’s super dangerous to take a selfie while you’re driving. But since we just can’t survive without those photos, maybe this is the answer?

Chrysler just created a new car called the Portal that takes selfies FOR YOU. There’s a camera mounted in the car that automatically takes pictures of everyone inside and sends those pictures to their phones.

For now, it’s just a concept car, so there’s no word on whether they might really produce it one day . . . or whether they could add the selfie feature to their other cars.

…Now they’re just trying to figure out how to get the car to wear a bikini and make a duck-face.

Three Ways to Make Your Phone Battery Last Longer

Three Ways to Make Your Phone Battery Last Longer

how-to-make-your-smartphone-battery-last-longer

There was a survey last week that found a longer battery life is the number one feature people want in their phone. So here are three ways to help your battery stay charged longer. And they’re all backed by science . . .

1. Don’t let it get too hot. Heat speeds up the chemical reaction inside the battery and drains it faster. So don’t leave it next to a heater, or let it sit out in the sun.

2. Never let the battery die. Lithium ion batteries degrade over time, so eventually they can’t hold as much juice on a single charge. And they degrade faster if you always let the battery die before you charge it. So if your phone’s about to die, you should just turn it off.

3. If you won’t be using it for a while, store it half-charged. Right around 50% is good, and keep it in a cool, dry place.

It’s only worth doing if you’re turning it off for at least a few days though. Like if you’ll be out of cell range all weekend, or flying overseas where you can’t use it. If it’s only for a few hours, don’t worry about it.

Facebook Has a New Feature That Lets You Completely Avoid Your Ex

Facebook Has a New Feature That Lets You Completely Avoid Your Ex

p

You’re not going to believe this, but Facebook just introduced a new feature that ISN’T a way to violate your privacy. I didn’t know they were even capable of that.

In fact, it’s sort of the OPPOSITE. It’s a new feature that lets you COMPLETELY avoid any trace of your EX.

As of yesterday, when you change your relationship status from “in a relationship” to “single,” Facebook will guide you through the process.

It’ll give you options to scrub any of their future posts from your news feed . . . to block your posts from showing up in THEIRS . . . and to remove any posts or photos you tagged them in.

They say the new options are, quote, “part of our ongoing effort to develop resources for people who may be going through difficult moments in their lives.”
