Adults are afraid of these new emojis

"I sense this is bad," said Tucker Carlson, "I can't articulate why." Carlson and Mike Rowe of Dirty Jobs fame discussed the release of a new batch of emojis set to release soon. The devastating effect of new pictures-as-text seemed to call forth some base emotion in Rowe, something he said he couldn't quite summon a lot of "righteous indignation" over, but that he found entirely troubling nonetheless.

Best open source apps for Android & iOS in 2017

Our mobile devices, particularly our smartphones, have practically become extensions of our persons. And yet we do not treat them with the same guarded vigilance as we do our homes. Whereas we, most often than not, scrutinize almost everything that comes or is added into our abodes, we willy-nilly install apps sometimes with wanton disregard for what they might contain.

Not to mention technically difficult if the app's source code is unavailable.

Fortunately, there is a class of apps available under an open source license that makes it not only easier to inspect what gets installed on your phone but even take the app in new directions should the need arise. Here are some of the best open source apps for Android as well as iOS.

It’s now easier, but more expensive, to journal on your phone

They say that the best tool, the best camera, the best notebook, etc. is the one that's always with you. If that's the case, then there is perhaps no better tool than the smartphone that almost never leaves your hand or your face. That's true for most things, including keeping a journal of your day. No, we're not talking about those heart-rending pages that start with "Dear Diary", though that's also included.
