An App That Seriously Spice Up Your Sex Life

The app, currently awaiting App Store approval, let's you request like-minded partners based on location. You designate your gender and your desired partner's and whether you're willing to host or travel. Nearby potentials pop up and if you both click and say you're interested, you're shown geo-coordinates and can chat. There are no profiles to flip through like Tinder. If your match is unrequited, it disappears.

Although it may be too racy to make it into the App Store (like Bang With Friends, which was ultimately booted), its founders say the app bans nudity and adheres to the iOS terms of service.

It's a service championing sex for the pure joy of the act, explain the two Eastern European founders, who eschew gay or straight labels.
"In our twenties, we realized the traditional monogamy fairytale wasn't really working for us," Sidorenko, the 34-year-old CEO told Mashable. "Monogamy isn't the only way to achieve happiness — we believe it's outdated."
The duo spent the last year between San Francisco, Russia, and Ukraine, bootstrapping until securing $200,000 from Russian angel investors in May. Sex educator and author Carol Queen has since joined the team as an advisor. Now Pure is choosing between headquartering in London or New York.
They'll soon learn if they're accepted in the App Store, and plan to modify the app, if need be, to get in. Concerns over privacy, and whether or not this service is even safe for users may cause it to be denied, which worries Sidorenko. Still, he says he's willing to make whatever changes are needed to get in.
He says the next step after approval is to build users and distribute invites at offline events in New York, starting in the gay community. A slightly NSFW short film aims to get the project exposure on YouTube:

LG plans to launch a flexible OLED smartphone before the end of the year, the company’s VP of mobile has confirmed, though it’s unclear to what extent the work-in-progress handset will actually flex. The OLED panel in question is the handiwork of LG Display according to VP of LG mobile Yoon Bu-hyun, the WSJ  reports, with the proposed device set to launch sometime in Q4.

Syrian Electronic Army claims credit for CBS Twitter accounts hack

Yesterday, several of CBS ’s Twitter accounts were hacked, including its main account, and its accounts for 60 Minutes, 48 Hours, and CBS Denver. The hackers got into the account and tweeted a series of things relating to President Obama and the United States being in cahoots with Al-Qaeda . The tweets also had links that led users to malware-infested sites. While CBS was able to regain access to its accounts, it was unable to figure out who was behind the attacks, until now. The Syrian Electronic Army , the same group that hacked 3 of the BBC’s Twitter accounts, claimed

Can Technology Do a Better Job of Finding Bombs?

 With the horrifying images of the Boston Marathon bombing still much too fresh in our minds, and with citywide marathons coming up this weekend in London, Hamburg, and Salt Lake City , law enforcement officers and citizens everywhere are asking how to prevent the tragedy from being repeated. As Columbia University School of International and Public Affairs adjunct professor Abraham Wagner observed last year, on the 11th anniversary of 9/11, there’s “no magic bullet o
