New Website Will Help You Name Your Hipster-y Farm-to-Table Restaurant

Are you a Brooklyn resident but you feel that your relationship with your neighborhood is so much more? Does your gluten-free heart only truly feel at home on the slightly shabby yet ever-so-charming streets of your truly hip borough? Do you wear skinny jeans and scoop-neck tees and fedoras? Do you have an un-ironic mustache (and you wax it)? Do you eat kale more than three times a week? Do you ask where your beef was raised? If you answered yes to even one of those questions, then this website is for you (and your future business). At its see more

Stop Being So Mean to Celebrities on Twitter Already

Jimmy Kimmel's series "Mean Tweets"—wherein famous people read vicious social-media swipes at themselves on camera—has been going on for quite some time now. But his most recent edition, above, is particularly heavy with A-listers, including the ever-hated lifestyle guru (and sometimes actress-singer) Gwyneth Paltrow, Lena Dunham, and current Vegas showgirl Britney Spears. And somehow, someone out there found something mean to say to the incredibly likable Chris Pratt. Heartless. see more

A New Dating App Grades Potential Dates, Weeds Out Underachievers

If you've ever wished there were more opportunities in adult life to be judged, you might want to download the new dating app The Grade. Catering to those who constantly cringe at their Tinder matches' "here" versus "hear" mistakes or lament evenings wasted waiting for a nonexistent response, the new iPhone app uses a specific algorithm to give users letter grades based on popularity, responsiveness, and message quality (with points deducted for grammar mistakes, slang, and inappropriate content) to ensure a high-quality dating experience. Users who get a C or below get advice to improve their score, while those with see more

Don't Freak Out, but We Might Get a Taco Emoji in 2015

The heavens (by which we mean the people at the Unicode Consortium, the group that decides which emojis we get) have heard our prayers. Next year could bring us a taco emoji, something many of us have been desperately asking for for, well, as long as emojis have been around. see more

Can't Put Down Your Smartphone? There's an App for That

If you find yourself interacting with the phone more often than with actual people—and let's be honest, who hasn't lately?—it's time to find an antidote. Here's one solution that probably won't work: Mr. Offlime, a Japanese-made iPhone game by Qosmo, Inc., is an app that awards points for ignoring the digital world. Ironic or actually clever? We're still not sure. The company's website certainly seems earnest: "While the app is up and running, you can't check your e-mail or Facebook," it explains, as a cheery little man with a lime-shaped clock for a head looks on. "The only thing you see more

Michael Bastian Figured Out How to Make a Genuinely Stylish Smartwatch

The battle to make wearable technology look as good as it performs has been an uphill battle. From the cringe-inducing dorkiness of Google Glass to the space-age feel of the Apple Watch, nothing seems to have really nailed the push and pull of form and function. Until now. see more

Why Your Next Financial Adviser Should Be a Robot

When LinkedIn went public in 2011, Adam Nash remembers, Wall Street wealth managers swarmed the Silicon Valley campus, pitching their services to the 100 or so early employees like him who'd just become crazy rich. "But that did little to help the other 1,400 people seeking financial advice," says Nash, then LinkedIn's VP of product management. "I thought, It doesn't have to be that way." Now it's not—for those 1,400 and their first-, second-, and third-degree connections. see more

The 10 Best Shows to Watch With Twitter

I thought I could tweet #AHSFREAKSHOW without a glass of wine clutched in my hand, but I was wrong.— refinery29 (@Refinery29) October 30, 2014 Television is great, but let's face it, in this era when we need to be entranced by multiple glowing screens at once, the boob tube just isn't enough anymore. We need another screen to keep our attention. But you can't read the New York Times or play Candy Crush while trying to watch your stories. What can you do on your phone, laptop, or tablet that will amplify your experience as well as slightly distract see more

The 5 Craziest Space Videos on NASA's Website

Last night, NASA's unmanned supply rocket to the International Space Station exploded just six seconds after launch. Prior to the 6:22pm ET launch, news outlets had been informing readers in the vicinity of the Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia that they might be able to see the Antares rocket and Cygnus cargo spacecraft as they arced overhead. What we all saw, of course, turned out to be quite different: a huge flaming orange fireball ... which I think it's probably acceptable to now describe as "amazingly awesome," because no humans (or monkeys or dogs) turned into a fireball along with see more
