    Photo editing app slammed for targeting kids to look 'prettier and skinnier'

    An iPhone app that alters a young child model’s appearance to make her “prettier” without the “need to go for any plastic surgery” is being slammed by child protection groups as disturbing. “Would you wonder if you also look prettier or more handsome when you have a slimmer face and bigger eyes?” The app questions, above a before and after photo of a young blonde model.

    Sephora’s updated app includes interactive beauty tutorials

    There are a million and one beauty apps out there. But even we have to admit that this new feature from the Sephora app is pretty cool.  Unlike a lot of apps, which will have a video demo of the makeup artist applying a given technique to their own face, the virtual artist (found under the “inspire me” tab) actually uses the camera on your phone to draw out the instructions on your face in real time – so there’s no guessing. Step-by-step, it walks you through prep, application and finishing touches – and then (of course) offers a listing of suggested products for achieving the look.

    Tinderella tries something different: A blind date

    Remember dating before online dating? You know, meeting someone at work, school, through a friend or at a bar? I’d forgotten too until a girlfriend asked if she could set me up.  It was the perfect blind date situation: a friend of a friend. I needed a break from Tinder so I figured why not? Also, she assured me that she had done a ‘background check’ and that the setup was more about thinking we would actually click than the fact that we were both in our 30s and single.

    The Biggest Kardashian Leak Since Kim’s Sex Tape

    Photo: In the biggest leak for the Kardashian-Jenner family since Kim’s sex tape was released by ex-boyfriend Ray J, the reality stars’ personal apps suffered a security hack, exposing hundreds of thousands of subscribers’ personal information.  As Tech Crunch reports, a developer was able to connect to the new sites and obtain the full database of users, including associated names and emails. It seems the error, traced to an API and open javascript file issue, is actually a pretty common security mistake and is in no way on par with the Target breach from a few months ago considering no payment details — it’s $2.99 per month per app for unfiltered access — were jeopardized.
