Creepy Bug Hiding In Your FaceTime App
A newly discovered bug in the iPhone's Facetime app lets people hear through someone else's iPhone, even if they haven't answered the call . Apple says the bug seems to rely on the Facetime Group Call feature, which launched just last year.
The company says a fix is coming this week, and recommends turning off Facetime on your iPhone to prevent anyone from snooping in the meantime. But the kicker of it all? THEY didn’t discover the glitch – a teenager did !
Apparently, the teen found the flaw and told his mom…and according to evidence she’s produced, she advised Apple a week ago. Her communications were apparently ignored until a video exposing it went viral.
Man Calls 911 And Says He Wants To Go To Jail, Cops Give Him His Wish
Sometimes all you have to do is ask and you shall receive. Take Reynaldo Martinez for instance. He really wanted to go to jail. In fact, he called 9-1-1 so many times last Friday that he ended up exactly where he asking to go. He allegedly stated that he did not want to stay home but wanted to go to the county jail for the night. Officers responded to a third 911 call at about 1:30 a.m. at the man's home and placed him under arrest. Martinez was arrested on the charge of silent, abusive calls to 911.
Having Kids Will Undoubtedly Make You Miserable, Science Says
According to a new study, you might be better off not having kids at all. That’s the general findings of a new study published in the journal Demography anyway. Canadian demographer Rachel Margolis led the research, which was performed in Germany and subsequently titled “Parental Well-Being Surrounding First Birth as a Determinant of Further Parity Progression.” According to participants in the study, the unhappiness caused by the birth of their first child was worse than losing their job, getting divorced, or even experiencing the death of a partner. It’s worth noting that this study only covered parenthood in the first two years of the child’s life rather than asking parents of elementary school-aged kids, middle schoolers, or even high schoolers felt like, so chances are much of the displeasure reported is due to the intensity of those first years.
