Tempted to just send a quick SMS saying you’re on the way? Don’t. No text is worth your life. Take the pledge. Don’t Text and Drive. #itcanwait
Taking our eyes off the road and our hands off the wheel to send or read a text, email, comment, post, tweet, is an unnecessary risk. The Department of Transportation has sobering statistics that reinforce the message, and they have compiled a summary of all the state laws about hands-free calling and texting while driving.

So you have an archive of 2,286 pictures on your smartphone? More like 4,722? Me too! Aside from making a new Facebook album every week or posting to Instagram on the hour every hour, it’s hard to know what exactly to do with all of these photos. Turn photos you took from your phone in to awesome tangible things like coaster tiles, canvas prints, scarves, and tons more. I’m especially thinking about those ones that are so vibrant, iconic, and memorable, that you want more than a digital file. Here are 3 handsome apps that will help you turn your archive of photos into books, bags, metal plates, and posters.

You can now scratch one more big name off the list of apps not available on Windows Phone. Tumblr has just released its official app for Microsoft’s mobile platform (the latest version of it, at least), offering all the key features found in its iOS and Android counterparts with a distinct Windows Phone flavor. That includes the ability to swipe left and right to switch between the dashboard and “explore” options, and the option to add the latest images from your dashboard to your lock screen or live tiles. You can also rest assured that animated GIFs will remain animated while you scroll.

When I asked the Twittersphere and our Facebook page about your biggest cellphone annoyances a while back, one of your biggest complaints was overhearing people’s phone conversations. The New York Times takes a look at why we find that so annoying.

It is also a control thing, Dr. Galván and her colleagues said. When people are trapped next to a one-sided conversation – known nowadays as a “halfalogue” – their anger rises in the same way it does in other situations where they are not free to leave, like waiting for a train.
