The updated Lelo Ina Wave 2 is the best that rabbit vibrators have to offer

The rabbit vibrator has become so iconic that it's practically synonymous with sex toys. From Sex and the City to Fleabag, pop culture hypes up this bunny-eared dual stimulator to be the most earth-shattering of pleasure devices that (to quote Fleabag), "doesn't stop until you've cum."

In reality, though, rabbit-style vibrators kinda suck if you ask me. They are the single most overrated category of sex toys, with some of the least beginner-friendly and least consistent designs that folks...

How to save videos on Snapchat

If you've taken a video on Snapchat and you want to save it to your camera roll, don't fear, it's a super easy process.

Saving a video on Snapchat is very straightforward. You can choose whether to save it to "Memories" which is Snapchat's own camera roll and where it pulls those pesky daily flashbacks from or to both Snapchat's "Memories" and your phone's camera roll.

If you're looking to save a video sent to you on Snapchat, it's a little more complicated...and a little creepier. Maybe...

Petcube Bites 2 Lite is a budget-friendly treat tosser that keeps an eye on your pet

Treat-flinging pet cameras have an obvious appeal on the human side of things. It's a way to keep an eye on our pets — and potentially keep them company — when we have to leave them home alone.

But there's another deciding factor regarding whether your home could benefit from a fancy interactive pet camera: Will your pet give a shit about it?

Mid-pandemic is a great time to figure that out. After a year (or two? IDK what time is) of avoiding public outings, pets who had the privilege of...

Twitter Super Follows has generated only around $6K+ in its first two weeks

Twitter’s creator platform Super Follows is off to an inauspicious start, having contributed to somewhere around $6,000 in U.S. iOS revenue in the first two weeks the feature has been live, according to app intelligence data provided by Sensor Tower. And it’s made only around $600 or so in Canada. A small portion of that revenue may be attributed to Ticketed Spaces, Twitter’s other in-app purchase offered in the U.S. — but there’s no way for this portion to be calculated by an...

Instagram boss says social media is like cars: People are going to die

Adam Mosseri isn't doing Facebook any favors.

The head of Instagram was interviewed on the Recode Media podcast this week following a damning series of articles in the Wall Street Journal based on leaked internal Facebook documents. In the interview with host Peter Kafka, Mosseri attempted to defend the negative effects his platform has on its users by comparing social media to cars. The gist of his argument?

It’s the deal of the century.
