Now Facebook’s annoyed William Shatner

He may be everyone’s favourite eccentric granddad, but the OG Captain Kirk isn’t such a fan of Facebook after trying out their Mentions app and finding it lacking. In the first content post on his new Tumblr, Shatner Specials, the actor/singer/gravel-voiced icon details his experience of using the iOS app, which (ironically given his impassioned cover version of Pulp’s Common …

INSIGHT – My vision for the future of fashion: smart tights, boob-specific tops, non-creasing clothes

Following on from the news that Cher’s computerised wardrobe from Clueless is now a real thing, here are a few more visions of fashion future that I’d like to see become a reality in my lifetime (or from my cryogenic freezer, at least)… In the future, every garment will come with an exact copy, virtually stored on a database, that …
