KIK messenger app now overrun by porn spammers

If you grab every new app out there that you hear the kids& teenagers like, then you probably have KIK, an app extremely popular among the young crowd. While the messenger app is simple and often fun to use, with meme-making features and the ability to add videos and images to chats, it's also full of random sex-spammers.

Taco Bell now serving signature cocktails in select stores

With all the hoopla about Taco Bell's new breakfasts, some more interesting news slipped under the radar.

In a recent Reddit AMA Taco Bell President Brian Niccol said his dream would be to add beer to the menu. It seems he was being coy. Because if their Hollywood location is any indication, they're not only serving beer, but speciality cocktails, too.

Sorry Taco Bell, Jack in The Box already talked to Ronald McDonald

Whats up, 2002? Despite Taco Bell's brand new ads touting their breakfast so yummy that Ronald McDonald likes it, Jack in the Box already explored that idea. In 2002. Go on, check it out.

Freeperiod.se - free tampons in the mail, paid for by ads.

Yep, there's a regular monthly subscriber base ripe for special offers and targeted ads right there. You'd think a woman might have thought of it first, but I guess they were too busy with other things.

One thing though, isn't advertising on my tampons just a little creepy?

Vulfpeck releases silent album, mocks Spotify's pathetic royalties.

Brilliant. Funky R&B band Vulfpeck knows Spotify plays don't pay the bills. So the L.A.-based band is waving a middle finger to them, and promoting themselves and their upcoming tour in the process.
