It seems to have all started on March 15, 2012 when @MommyLovesWine tweeted the first tweet about #KUBOOBS. Gentleman of leisure, and sometimes DJ, @DJSoap was the next to tweet about #KUBOOBS when he tweeted, "I need to see more #KUboobs!"
The hashtag failed to take off over the next few days with Topsy Analytics showing that there were only 10 mentions of #KUBOOBS on March 16th, 0 mentions on the 17th, 11 mentions on the 18th, and again 0 mentions from the 19th-22nd. It seemed that #KUBOOBS had reached its peak and that would be the end of it.
All hell broke loose on March 23, 2012 when the University of Kansas took on North Carolina State in the Sweet 16. On that fateful day in #KUBOOBS history, a whopping 1,310 mentions of #KUBOOBS were made on Twitter. The hashtag took a dive on March 24th with only 260 mentions of #KUBOOBS but then, not surprisingly, when the University of Kansas took on the University of North Carolina on March 25, 2012, the #KUBOOBS hashtag went through the roof and hit 2,058 mentions on Twitter.
Most of the #KUBOOBS tweets have been positive, with the vast majority of them being tweets of women wearing a KU t-shirt (with or without cleavage.) A few of our favorite photos have been nude, or semi-nude, and feature some of the best breasts KU has to offer! Some "twidiots," however, have been critical of the hashtag, calling it slutty and trashy, while others have taken it to an extreme and threatened those that were posting with the hashtag! We hosted a #KUBOOBS contest where the winner that tweeted at us with the #KUBOOBS hashtag would win a $50 Amazon gift card. The winner sent us a spectacular photo of her breasts with KU pasties and a KU flag, but she had to take it down because someone actually sent her a threatening message!
We can only imagine what will happen to the number of #KUBOOBS mentions when Kansas takes on Ohio State in the Final Four in New Orleans, and if they go on to win the championship, we think @MommyLovesWine and her #KUBOOBS hashtag may give #KONY2012 a run for its money as the most viral hashtag of all time!
We read about the new Pair app for iPhone today on Mashable and we HAD to download it right away. We figured we could use the "thumb kiss" feature to do naughty things with our private parts from far away, and it worked after a little bit of experimenting! Here's our take on the Pair iPhone app and what it can do for your relationship(s)!
The idea of the app is really pretty neat. You "pair up" with your lover, or in our case lovers, and you can send each other messages, send photos and videos back and forth, "paint" together on the screen, send your partner your location, keep a shared to-do list, create virtual moments together, and our favorite feature, the "thumb kiss" which lets you use your thumb to send a virtual kiss to one another.
The most useful part of the app is the one-on-one chat room between you and your significant other. You can chat, send photos, send videos, paint, send a "thinking of you" message, have a little fun with the "thumb kiss" feature, and send your partner your location. Draw Something's got nothing on this app because here you can draw a penis for your partner and then send them an actual picture (or video) of your penis!
One of the coolest features of the app is the "thumb kiss" feature. With this feature, you're supposed to take your thumb and keep it on the screen. Your partner touches their screen where your thumb is, and if you keep it there for a second the screen turns red and vibrates. Naturally we wanted to know what would happen if we took our dicks and put it on the screen. Sure enough it worked! Hint: A penis is not as mobile as a finger, so you kind of just have to plop it on there and hope for the best.
Overall we would have to say that the Pair app for iPhone is a pretty nifty little app, even if you don't want to use "thumb kiss" mode on your penis. If you have a boyfriend, girlfriend, or spouse that is away from you, the app certainly makes it easy to keep in touch and have a one-on-one, multimedia, virtual conversation with them. Currently the app is only available for iPhone, but an Android version is said to be in the works and should come out soon. We give it 4 out of 5 stars!
I've always thought a vibrator app for iPhone would be cool, but I never had the time nor the expertise to create such an app. A quick search in the App Store revealed that there were already quite a few vibrator apps, with most of them masquerading as neck and shoulder massagers, so I decided to put 3 of them to the test. If there's a lovely female geek out there that would like to do a video review of these 3 iPhone vibrator apps, please leave a comment below!
Final Thoughts: As a guy that's used lots of vibrators on women over the years, I have to say that the free vibrator apps that are out there for the iPhone are severely lacking. The iPhone's vibrating mechanism isn't all that strong, and the choice of apps is pretty pathetic. If a woman NEEDED to have a vibrator on her iPhone instead of using something like a magic bullet or a Hitachi Magic Wand, then she should definitely pick MyVibe as it has the best features.
I have been a bit of a gamer for as long as I can recall. I'm talking far back... back to the 80's and a Commodore 64 that required a long wait for the mere loading of games off of a floppy disk (remember those?) or much worse, from a cassette tape. Later in the 90's, I would go to a friend's to play the first Nintendo, that is until I one-upped them with a Christmas gift from my parents, the Super Nintendo. The Super Nintendo soon became second fiddle to the first game console I ever bought for myself, and it was the long awaited Nintendo 64. We all managed to survive the millennium bug, and in the year 2000 Playstation II hit the shelves. Obviously I had to have one of those! After that, Microsoft came into the picture with their famous XBOX which meant so long outdated PSII. The next logical progression from there was the Xbox 360...and that brings us up to date.
I had only had the Xbox 360 a year and a half when it showed ill fated signs of the dreaded 'red ring of death'! For those who are not in the know, that basically meant your XBOX was experiencing a general error and that if it turned out to be irreparable and out of warranty then it meant saying good-bye to your gaming console. Mine was one of the few deemed unworthy of repair and I had been playing it less and less anyhow so I decided just to let it go entirely. I didn't really make a big deal out of it; I was more concerned about watching movies on the console than playing games on it. Besides, considering the time and money I've spent on consoles over the years, it was probably for the best.
Everything was going just great. I had a job that kept me busy, a new girlfriend to spend time with, so playing video games wasn't much of a priority for me. I had a few friends that had started playing Battlefield III online and told me that I should get involved and be a part of their platoon. But that was not enough to change my mind. It wasn't until I saw a trailer for Skyrim at the cinema that I knew I might be in a bit of trouble. Initially I thought it was just a movie trailer, and then I saw the "now on Xbox 360" message at the bottom of the viewing screen. I was overwhelmed! My girlfriend, who was with me at the time, she even commented about how epic the trailer appeared. So what choice did I have but to invest in a new console? I bought an Xbox 360 at the local game store, some games including Skyrim and Battlefield III, a subscription to XBOX Live, and a new headset so I could chat with my friends. It was a fair sized bundle which cost me nearly a thousand dollars but it was totally worth it! Or so I thought?
I warned my partner that this might be last time she would see me for a few months. She assumed I was joking, and at that time I meant it as a joke, too, but after some time passed, I actually started to worry. I would check the clock (conveniently located in the console menu) and realise that the whole day had passed by and I had done nothing but level up in my games! I tried to convince myself it was justifiable; I told myself, "hey you work hard, you did go to the gym to work out a little this week, so you should not feel guilty about some game time." But then I considered what I could have accomplished in other areas of my life in the same amount of time and it actually made me feel a little sad. I could have done a little more work, something that I actually get paid for? I could have used the time to produce new content for my blog. But, there I was, with nothing to show for all that time spent but some Skyrim dragon bones, and a rank of sergeant in Battlefield III.
Apart from being unproductive I also realised that I was neglecting more important things. If I were halfway through a new level, I would neglect doing necessary chores so I could play on in the game. I would also miss out on catch up time with my friends thanks to staying up so late playing games the night before, leaving me too tired or without any desire to go out. But the most important thing of all was I was neglecting my girlfriend, failing to give her the attention and care she deserved from me. I am fortunate in that my girlfriend enjoys playing games too; while I battle Skyrim dragons, she fiddles around with her Sims characters. But it became evident how terrible I was being when she would ask for favours,simple things like putting the bin out,but I would actually prioritise the game over helping her...even though there is a pause button.
Gaming is a good way to take off some of the stress of daily life, but only in moderation. It gives you a chance to leave real life behind for a while and be the marine, the dragon slayer, the hero. You have no strict guidelines, no office politics or drama, and no meetings to attend. The big keyword is 'moderation'. How much time in front of your games is too much time? The answer to that depends on every different situation. If you are involved in a relationship, then how much time you should spend gaming should be discussed with your partner. You have to compromise and arrive at a solution that is acceptable for everyone involved. How about playing just a few times a week for a few hours at a time? If you play games with your friends on the internet, maybe have a night designated for games with your mates and make sure your partner knows about it in advance. Your partner must understand that your game playing time is important to you; it helps you unwind and destress. But you can still let them know you care about and appreciate them with a night out occasionally or spending one on one time with them.
For most of us playing games is just a hobby like woodworking or stamp collecting but for others a gaming addiction can be a serious problem. How do you know if you are a gaming addict? If you answer yes to any of these questions it might be an indicator of a bigger problem.

We have all been in a rut, locked in a pattern of circumstances that we can't seem to get out of.

So you've heard all the hype about Windows 8 and you want to try the consumer preview, but you use a Mac with OS X. What's a geek to do? Well, here's a free and easy way to try out Windows 8 Consumer Preview by using Oracle's free VirtualBox virtualization software package.
The first thing you want to do is download VirtualBox. You can download VirtualBox by visiting www.virtualbox.org and heading over to the downloads section.
Once you've downloaded and installed VirtualBox, you'll need to get the Windows 8 Consumer Preview from Microsoft. Grab the .ISO file from here. You'll need the .ISO file in order to install and run Windows 8 Consumer Preview in VirtualBox. We downloaded the 32-bit ISO image and then sat back for a while because the download is a bit large at 2.5GB.
Once we downloaded the ISO image, we fired up VirtualBox and went through the process of adding a new operating system. You'll want to give it a name, in our case we chose Windows 8 Preview and then we were able to choose Microsoft Windows as the operating system and Windows 8 (not Windows 8 64-bit) as the version of Windows we wanted to install. Once you start going through the next few setup screens, you'll want to just use the defaults that VirtualBox recommends.
Once you've gone through the setup for the new operating system, simply click on the green START arrow, select the location of your ISO file and run through the usual Windows setup. You'll be running the consumer preview version of Windows 8 in no time and you'll be able to see what all the fuss is about! As for us, we were not that impressed with what we saw.
