In lol-worthy Keynote news, the Apple Pencil, aka your old Blackberry stylus, was introduced as a new tool for creatives and kids to draw, erase and navigate on the iPad.

As for pricing, the 6s starts at $199 and the 6s Plus is set at $299. Last year's models, the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus are $99 and $199, respectively. iPhone 6s will hit shelves on September 12 and iOS 9 will roll out on September 16. (Via: The Verge)

Tinder Adds A Third Option: "Super Like", Because Thirst Is Real

via Tinder

Today, Tinder just added a third option for baewatchers looking to let a prospective match know that they're really, really feeling them. Instead of just a simple swipe right, the new "Super Like" option has users swiping up, or tapping on the new blue star icon that appears as you lurk the app. The Tinder crush will notice a blue footer on the profile belonging to the person who swiped up. According to the press release, "each user will be granted only a limited number of Super Likes to force selective use." So use 'em wisely. For now, the new update is only available for Australia-based users, it's expected to roll out globally later this year.
