the iphone h8: gonna be so boring


the macalope is sorry to report that apple will be shipping another iphone this year. ugh. sorry.writing for the forbes contributor network and cut-rate bar mitzvah dj training academy, ewan spence tells us how the “disappointing iphone 8 leaks are key to apple's boring success.” (tip o’ the antlers to samt, david v, philip speicher and @jonyiveparody.)dullesville, calif. population: apple. main exports: these boring iphones no one likes.expectations are rising that apple’s new iphone 8 will be packed full of magical hardware and technological advances to create an all-powerful flagship smartphone.but, nope.look, we all know the big hit phone this year will be the nokia 3310 (tip o’ the antlers to gerald hammond). inc. changed the title after publishing that piece, but for bonus lols check






elon musk's tunnel goals may be too lofty


elon musk’s spacex and tesla may have revolutionized space travel and electric vehicle design and manufacturing, but experts say his latest lofty goal of increasing tunnel-building efficiency by at least 500 percent is absolutely ridiculous.the hawthorne-based billionaire began digging a hole – technically, a vertical shaft – next to space exploration technologies corp. at crenshaw boulevard and 120th street on friday. he has obtained city permits to dig a very wide tunnel 50 feet below ground. it will only traverse crenshaw boulevard to spacex’s employee parking structure, but musk has repeatedly said he has much bigger tunnel ambitions.he is in talks with la metro to use or buy one of its tunnel-boring machines to dig the tunnel, according to several sources close to the project. but met

why apple doesn’t need a ‘revolutionary’ iphone


in apple’s most recent earnings call, tim cook revealed that the iphone 7 and 7 plus set a record for the most iphone sold in a single quarter. together, these iphones sold over 78 million units and made over $54 billion, ending apple’s three consecutive quarters of declining iphone sales. in this week’s episode of the iphone show, let’s explore what the the success of the iphone 7 means for the future of the iphone. after all, the iphone 7 was originally criticized for being “boring.” but if a boring iphone can still make billions of dollars, does apple have any motivation to take a risk and create a “revolutionary” device? or perhaps apple did take a big risk with the launch of the iphone 7, by giving the plus models exclusive features like the dual- era system that can take p os in p






don't be salty - chicago tribune


not all assignments are created equal, but the way you cover them should be. if a photo has my name on it, i'm going to shoot it as if it could be on the front page. i realize how cheesy that sounds and i can already feel my college roommates making fun of me. but ask any photographer and they'll tell you - one of the worst feelings in the world is seeing a weak photo on the front page with your name on it. it's like shooting an air ball, utterly embarrassing. so when my editor mark told me i was shooting a pile of salt my first thought was - pepper. no not really. but i consider not saying that a missed opportunity. i was actually really excited about the assignment. i've always wondered where those little blue rocks that get all over my car come from and i was pretty psyched to find out.






for less boring conver ions, embrace your vulnerabilities


if you’ve ever felt like a completely dull person, take solace in this idea the school of life presents: you’re not boring, you’re probably just guarded. in this video, they explain how to come across as less boring in conver ions.advertisementwe aren’t exactly conditioned to be exciting; we’re taught to be normal, appropriate, and socially acceptable. sometimes our deepest thoughts, opinions, fears, and desires—the most exciting things about us—get buried in our attempts to fit in. the school of life explains (emphasis ours):out of modesty and habit, we push some of our most interesting perceptions to one side in order to follow respectable but dead conventions of what might impress. when we tell anecdotes we throw the emphasis on the outward details: who was there, when we went, what the






how boring was he in san jose?


blake shelton is better on tv than he is in concert.and, let’s face it, he’s not all that great on tv.too bad we couldn’t flip the channel on shelton’s show on friday night at the sap center, instead having to put up with one of the more boring evenings of live music in recent memory.“what’s up everybody?” said the multiplatinum country crooner, who is also known as a coach on tv’s “the voice. “it’s friday night – let’s start acting like it.”with that greeting, shelton and his seven-piece backing band launched into a lackluster “all about tonight,” one of roughly 20 uninspiring offerings he’d bring forth during his doing it to country songs tour stop in san jose.it’s truly amazing to think that the 40-year-old oklahoman has gotten as far as he has with only a so-so catalog. you might not n

brooding white male video game protagonists, ranked


video games are amazing, because you can be anyone or anything in the universe: a blue hedgehog! a ghost! a unicorn with rocket launchers! about 80% of the time, though, you get to be a brooding white guy. there are so many of them that it’s hard to keep track. and they all seem to have dead wives.advertisementthis post originally appeared on kotaku uk, on march 2, 2016.as a fan of brooding white guys since i first started watching buffy the vampire slayer at age 12 (angel was my first love—i am an especial fan of the subgenre brooding white guy with a tortured past), i thought i would put together this definitive ranking. from worst to best:10. desmond milesdesmond is absolutely the worst. he is a whiny, incredibly boring dude who isn’t even hot, and isn’t anywhere near as interesting as

elon musk doesn’t just want to bore tunnels – he wants to make boring better


elon musk really is starting a tunnel digging company, and it really is called the boring company – tbc for short, which he says could also mean “to be continued.” the tesla and spacex ceo detailed his tunnel ambitions, which he shared first via twitter, with bloomberg, and showed off his first dig, which is located in the spacex parking lot both for convenience and because it’s legally uncomplicated.the plan right now is to take this initial hole and widen it so that it can support a tunnel boring machine, which would then dig down and then begin chewing through the earth horizontally once it hits a depth of around 50 ft. the desired end state for the tunnel is that it be wide enough to fit cars, and musk told bloomberg it’s intended as the anchor for a widespread underground transportati

elon musk wants to dig a huge tunnel under los angeles


"traffic is driving me nuts," tech mogul elon musk tweeted last december. "am going to build a tunnel boring machine and just start digging..." it says something about musk that most of us weren't sure whether he was joking. he quickly replied to his own tweet: "i am actually going to do this." he mentioned starting "the boring company," and added "tunnels" to his twitter bio, alongside tesla, spacex and openai. now it looks like his plan is forging ahead. last week, in a series of new tweets, musk provided a couple new nuggets of information. "exciting progress on the tunnel front. plan to start digging in a month or so," he tweeted on wednesday. when asked where his tunnel would be, musk responded that it would start "across from my desk at spacex. crenshaw and the 105 freeway, which is
