Snake on Google Maps

Let's face it, the best thing about the Nokia 3310 is playing snake.

It's available to play on iOS, Android and your desktop. That's your day sorted, then.


Uber launches new pogo stick

We'll be honest, we think our Maxoptra solution is a better shout when it comes to route optimisation.

Nevertheless, Uber claims the new UberGO pogo stick will tackle congestion and pollution out on the road.

Uber says the new piece of kit will put riders in full control, allowing them to navigate their own routes.

What do you reckon - is there a gap in the market?


Cricket to replace coin toss with Twitter poll

Admit it - tossing a coin is so 2018.

The ICC have finally decided to get with the times and introduce a more modern way to decide who bats first. Yep, Twitter will yet again decide everything!


As part of the April Fools' Day prank, the ICC have also insisted that cricketers will start wearing their Twitter handle on the back of their kits so you can remember to follow your favourite players online.

Come to think of it, this is not such a bad idea after all...


BBC iPlayer launches 'Skip the Sex' button

We've all been there. Sat down to watch something with the family and up pops Game of Thrones' latest saucy scene.


Luckily for you, the BBC are now here to help "skip" that particular nightmare with the new 'Skip the Sex' button.

The only question is, when left alone, how often will you be pressing it?


Tinder brings out new Height Verification

"When it comes to dating, honesty is the best policy", says Tinder.

The popular dating app wants to cut out the lies and enforce Height Verification.


Tinder have announced the release of a new tool which asks users to snap themselves standing next to a commercial building.. The app will then work its magic and work out your height.

Writing in a blog post, Tinder asserts: “It’s come to our attention that most of you 5’10ers out there are actually 5’6. The charade must stop. This type of dishonestly doesn’t just hurt your matches — it hurts us, too.
