App of the Day: Icelanders Can Bump Phones to Make Sure They Aren’t Related Before Sex
Are you terrified of love stories in Greek mythology? If you ever need to do a background check on your date to make sure he or she is not your distant cousin, well, there’s an app for that. Software engineers in Iceland have scraped publicly available genealogy data to create ÍslendigaApp, a mobile Android app which allows its users to bump their phones together to check if they are blood-related before making any traumatic mistake. When a match is too close, the device will sound off an “inc*st alarm,” notifying the two users that they should probably keep their clothes on.
Say… This photo of director Rob Reiner, Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman is everything.
Italian high court overturns Amanda Knox’s acquittal, orders new trial for murder of British student
Italy’s highest criminal court on Tuesday overturned Amanda Knox’s acquittal in the slaying of her British roommate and ordered a new trial, prolonging a case that has become a cause celebre in the United States.
Knox called the decision “painful” but said she was confident that she would be exonerated.
Italian law cannot compel Knox to return for the new trial, and her lawyer said she had no plans to do so. The appellate court hearing the new case could declare her in contempt of court but that carries no additional penalties. (Tiziana Fabi / AFP / Getty Images files)
Think she’ll get convicted in the new trial?
