"I’m convinced that figuring out how to change your relationship status without an embarrassing announcement appearing in your [Facebook] news feed requires a software engineering degree."

+The New York Times' +Nick Bilton wrote an interesting piece about breakups "in the age of social media." Coping with shattered romances "was a lot easier in the olden days," he believes.

How much personal data do you share with your partner?
"Being in a relationship necessarily means that you're going to share some of your digital life with your partner. How much is too much?"

An app called mCouple caught my attention recently. If you convince your partner to set it up, you’ll be able to see his or her incoming and outgoing text messages, call logs, contacts, location, Facebook messages, and more — in real time. The sharing is intended to be mutual, so your partner will be privy to the same sort of information about you.

This feels like an overwhelming amount of data to throw at one’s partner. I suppose the fact that mCouple is brought to us by the makers of mSpy, a mobile monitoring app with slightly creepier undertones, doesn’t exactly make me want to head to the App Store or Play Store either.

Scary squirrel sets record for "Fluffiest Tail in the World"
The tufted ground squirrel (Rheithrosciurus macrotis) has a reputation for hunting deer – well, more like serial killing deer – if legends are to be believed. It’s also the official owner of the Fluffiest Tail in the World.

(I don't know how true this whole story actually is, but it makes for an amusing read. After all ... it contains murder, mystery, and some oh-so-fluffy tails.)

The story behind this incredible photo of a monkey using an iPhone
”Earlier this year, our group was photographing the snow monkeys when tourists from a nearby resort arrived. Suddenly, we were surrounded by people shooting with iPads and iPhones, mostly selfies. We were standing close to the edge of the hot spring, when one of the tourists started taking shots with her iPhone, moving the phone closer to the macaque after each shot.

Suddenly, the macaque grabbed the iPhone from her hands — and quickly moved away towards the middle of the hot spring!

The owner screamed in agony, but the macaque was too fascinated by its new toy to notice.

The minutes that followed were downright hilarious. Monkeys already resemble humans in so many ways, but when they’re holding an iPhone, the similarities are almost scary. At some point, it even managed to let the built-in flash of the iPhone go off. When the macaque decided to do some serious underwater testing, the owner of the phone almost fainted. Meanwhile, I was fully aware that this would result in some of the most original snow monkey shots ever.”

Ice cream?!? For breakfast?
BLVD Creamery at +Monte Carlo Resort and Casino is apparently offering an ice cream treat called "All-American Breakfast." It's some sort of magical combination of flavors including bacon, sausage, maple syrup, and red velvet pancakes. Oh, and it comes with a scoop of coffee-flavored ice cream as well, of course.
