A few months ago we took a look at adult pinning websites, or as we like to call them, "Pinterest for porn." We checked out Snatchly.com, Sex.com, Pornterest.com, and Pinporn.com. Out of the four that we perused, we let it be known that we liked Snatchly the best. We even used Snatchly to pin tons of adult content that we shared with our audience on Twitter. Sadly, all of the pinning websites, including Snatchly, began to display pop-up ads and pop-under ads, and they were beginning to drive us nuts.
We tweeted out how we wished that a pinning site for adults existed that did not contain annoying ads, and after a few days we received a tweet from the good folks at Kliprr.com telling us that they didn't do those annoying types of ads. We visited the site and we were hooked! We setup an account and decided that Kliprr.com is our new pinning site of choice for all of the adult content that we share with our friends on a daily basis. We hope that you enjoy the site as much as we do and we would love if you visited our Kliprr page daily to see all of our newest, naughty Klips!
Biocom Technologies, a leader in innovative consumer biomedical products, has announced the release of FitPal. The new iPhone application helps users get their functional capacity and personalized recommendations on optimal and safe exercise intensity for each workout.
FitPal uses iPhone built-in camera with flashlight to monitor user pulse and calculate user’s functional capacity and optimal level of exercise intensity for today’s workout. This helps to ensure the greatest possible health benefits while significantly lowering and controlling risks of overtraining. At any time users can instantly check their pulse with FitPal to make sure they are staying within the recommended heart rate zone. More information and demo video is available on http://www.fitpal.com.
If you want to get some insights into how it works, FitPal measures the user’s pulse while establishing a benchmark as the cardiovascular system is challenged by moving from a sitting to standing position. Professional trainers and nurses refer to this action as a “stand-up,” and rely on the stand-up pulse rate to determine how well a person’s cardiovascular system is able to tolerate physical exercise. FitPal incorporates a special mathematical formula to evaluate the level of functional capacity. Then it chooses an adequate level of exercise intensity, in accordance with the guidelines of the American College of Sports Medicine.
“FitPal can be used before and during exercising,” explains Alexander Bandarchuk, VP of Engineering for Biocom Technologies. “It utilizes technologies that have been proven over time and validated through research conducted on thousands of subjects, including top athletes. With FitPal users can take a full control of their workouts, contributing to exercise quality and, more importantly, to a sustained health and fitness.”
SunVolt, a just-released project on the popular crowd-funding site Kickstarter, promises to make solar energy portable, powerful, flexible and affordable. Created by Don Cayelli, one of the founding partners of gadget accessory maker Gomadic Corp, SunVolt is a notebook sized solar panel power system packaged in a unique, custom designed carrying case.
With SunVolt and a clear day, users can take the system anywhere, set it up easily, point the solar panel towards the sun and plug in their device(s) to charge. Equipped with a powerful solar panel (available in both 10 and 15 watt sizes) and super-efficient power regulation technology, SunVolt puts off an impressive amount of energy, comparable to what most devices receive when they are plugged in to the wall.
“What’s unique about SunVolt is that, unlike most solar chargers, it charges directly from the sun without using a battery in-between”, explains Don Cayelli. “The combination of power and simplicity really makes this a must-have green alternative”.

The RealHelp App uses the power of your social network to stop would-be rapists and abusers. By broadcasting voice, location, and pictures to dozens of pre-selected contacts, the RealHelp App has been designed to destroy the secrecy and isolation that is so necessary for rape and abuse. Its creators hope that it can help keep users from being victimized.
RealHelp, now available for the iPhone, may be the most powerful entrant among so called “Rape Apps”. With the touch of a button it’s capable of notifying dozens of pre-selected contacts that the user is in trouble, broadcasting audio live from the user’s phone, and sharing the user’s location. “Contacting so many people greatly increases the chance that someone’s close by and in a good position to come to your aid.” explains RealHelp’s founder, James Medina. Even if no one is close by, those contacts can listen in, assess the situation, then direct emergency services to the user’s location. Any contact who misses the notification will still be taken to an archived recording of the alert session. “Pretty much from the moment that alert is triggered, a potential rapist or abuser’s chances of getting away with anything drops to near zero,” says Mr. Medina.
The RealHelp App was built on the theory that rapes happen because the perpetrators think they can get away with them. It’s unfortunately all too easy for a rapist to argue consent after the fact if there were no witnesses. The egregiousness of the crime makes it harder for people to believe that someone they know could do it. Consequently rape victims face the possibility that they may be accused of maliciously lying if they report the rape. The RealHelp App does everything it can to destroy any chance that a potential rapist or abuser can get away with anything.
RealHelp is easy to set up and easy to use. A user can load contacts quickly using his or her Facebook account. They can then specify what levels of alerts each contact receives, and how those contacts will be notified. The alert levels inform all alert recipients as to the severity of the situation and how they should respond. For example, Red Alerts include the script: “I need help now! Come right away and listen in.” In a potential crisis, the user can load the app, swipe one of three alert levels, and the contacts set to receive that alert level will receive notifications connecting them to the live alert session. The alert session includes a live updated map of the user’s location, streaming audio from the user’s phone, pictures taken by the user, and a chat session where RealHelp App users can coordinate. If the user’s friends don’t have the RealHelp App to receive push notifications through; they’ll still be able to receive notifications through Facebook messages, Facebook wall posts, or email. The Facebook and email notifications will include a link to a mobile optimized web based alert session. “The important thing is that your contacts are able to respond to an alert effectively, whether they have the app or not. Every one of those Facebook notifications should trigger push notifications for smart phone users with a Facebook App. Even if you’re the only RealHelp user you know; you should be able to light up dozens of people who care about you, and give them the tools they need to respond.” explains Mr. Medina. For a more visual look at how RealHelp works, there's a graphic step by step guide on RealHelpApp.com.
While any app on an iPhone may have its limitations, RealHelp stands out as a powerful tool; capable of using your social network to get a real world response, and create real world consequences for anyone who might seek to victimize a RealHelp user. RealHelp’s founder has this to say: “We thought through the scenarios we’re targeting and tried to tailor RealHelp to be as useful as possible in every situation. It’s the app that we’d want our friends and family to have if they were ever in trouble. Ultimately, we’re hoping that RealHelp can keep a lot of people from being victimized.” RealHelp’s team goes into more detail on why they built the app here: Why RealHelp Works.
RealHelp is currently available for the iPhone, and an Android version is slated for the next few months. It’s completely free to download and use indefinitely, but they’re hoping that users will donate to support it. Interested parties can learn more at RealHelpApp.com.
