Facebook Addict Takes Long Walk Off Short Pier In Australia & Lands In The Ocean!

australian tourist walks off pier while on facebook

Talk about a smartphone user who wasn't! Yikes!

Earlier this week, a tourist walked off the edge of an Australian pier and fell into the ocean, but you'll never guess how it happened!

The Taiwanese woman, who was in her 20s, was checking out St Kilda's Pier in Melbourne and, by checking it out, we mean she was just playing around on her phone! The lady was apparently so engrossed in her Facebook app that she forgot to look up when she reached the edge of the pier!

Ruh roh! Thankfully, she wasn't injured!

A local cop explained:

Instagram has done it again!

The ubiquitous picture sharing app got even MORE useful today after a software update was released that allows users to send direct messages to one another!

Chubby Checker Sues HP Over Peen-Measuring 'Chubby Checker App,' HIGHlarity Ensues!

chubby checker sues identically named penis measuring phone app

But, but.. it's so cleverly named!

Rock 'n' roll legend Chubby Checker recently filed a multi-million dollar lawsuit against Hewlett-Packard, claiming a smartphone app they published under the musician's name did “irreparable damage and harm” to his reputation.

The Chubby Checker App, you see, estimates the size of a man's package… and we aren't referring to the kind UPS delivers!

Through some miracle of science, it uses a dude's shoe size to determine what size drill bit he keeps in the tool box, if you know what we mean!

And, if you don't know what we mean, let us spell it out:

Penises! We are talking about penises! Their length! Width! Girth! The whole nine yards inches!! HA!

We totes understand why the 71-year-old Twist singer is horrified to see his legacy twisted by a penile punchline, but… what an epically HIGHlarious punchline it was!

UPDATE: Chubby Checker spoke publicly about his legal dramz. He said:

"I don't want people to go around calling me a penis."

Well, there you have it! He's a singer, not a schlong!

The chic shopper will post pictures of what she bought and where so people know just how to steal her style.

She explained why it’s so great, saying:

"You can upload photos like on Instagram, but then it’s also like Yelp in a way — that you can find what stores are nearest to you, which is awesome. It’s great, because I’m always the kind of person that’s like, ‘Where did you get that?’ "

Roberts will also contribute to Snapette's blog to talk about her fave trends.

The app is free in the iTunes store, and became available for Droids today.

Snapette will also be partnering with Diane von Furstenberg, Vince Camuto and more!

Can’t get enough of the Duchess of Cambridge? There's an app for that!

For less than $1, Kate’s Style List app will give you all the deets on who Catherine is wearing, where she got it and where you can get it too.

Creator and former actress, Helen Barclay, explains where she gets the outfit info:

"She mixes high street with designer so you can find a lot of the things she wears in shops such as Reiss and Zara. I spend a lot of my time trawling fashion websites and looking at the designers' shows online so that I can identify her pieces. I also follow a lot of fashion writers on Twitter so I know what Kate will be wearing when she next appears."

The Kate’s Style List bandwagon is already very popular in the US so hop aboard!

Condé Nast Created A Video Game And It's AH-MAY-ZING!

Filed under: Silly!Fashion Smashion

Well what do we have here?!

Condé Nast has finally created a game for couture-loving ladies called Fashion Hazard, the game where you “swipe, tap and tilt your way up the ranks.”

You control avatars who strut the catwalk, avoiding things like fallen models along the way.

As your first avatar, Ellie, advances in her career, you learn more about her, and she gets to walk in increasingly cooler countries! Then, you’ll eventually unlock even more models to work with!

Don’t let the '90s graphics fool you, this game is srsly addicting!

Check out the video (above) to get more deets!
