HowHigh Is Like Foursquare For Stoners, Complete With A "Buzzed" Badge And "Vouching" For Your Weed Buds

HowHigh are you? Oops. Hi, how are you? You'll have to forgive me, I'm a lil' buzzed right now, nothing illegal I swear, I have glaucoma and the doctor prescribed this herbal cure. Natural stuff he swore. But each time I take it, I get high-strung and paranoid, a pot. Lot. I said lot. This sounds so bong. DAMMIT, wrong. And sometimes it feels like I'm on a spinning wheel and... HAHAHAHAHAHA! Did I say spinning weed?

Because Your Phone Works Way Too Hard, You Should Let It Rest In This Ridiculous $99 Sofa And Ottoman Called, Ehm, "Phoniture"

There comes a point in any phone's life when it just wants to put its futon a couch and rest for the night. It has worked an entire day and it deserves to be a lazy boy after all those tweets, messages, photos, calls, and the millions of other things you made it do. If you have no Ikea what I'm talking about, you should go check out Phoniture, seriously, you otto-man. It may look like a regular couch stand for your phone, but trust me, it gets way bedder.

It's a wireless Bluetooth speaker, a microphone, and a cradle. There are a bunch of cables involved and the detachable ottoman's battery life only lasts 3.5 hours for Bluetooth music playback — you can't escape these two deap-seated problems.

[Happy Feet] These Smart Shoes From Lenovo Will Tell The World How You Feel If Your Face Isn't Enough

If today has taught us anything, it's that Lenovo doesn't like keeping its feet on the ground. The company's crazy concepts and ideas department, which is obviously not getting along on a shoestring, hasn't been dragging its feet in the last year. It has just unveiled a new Smart Cast phone concept, a Magic View smartwatch prototype, and now it's time for the other shoe to drop — literally.

See, usually humans use their face to convey their mood and expressions to the world, but if most people are goody two-shoes who walk with their head tilted down to avoid looking at others in the eyes, you have to find another way to get their attention.

[Deal Alert] It's Time You Got Imagine Dragon's Night Vision Album For Free On Play Music

Hear Me, this deal is most probably limited to the US only, like all the previous Play Music offers over the past couple of weeks. It's not my fault, this is the way labels and geographical limitations work. You can whine, curse, boycott Google, but it's a lost cause. With that out of the way, let's get to the meat of the matter.

The Play Music team is on a roll. I mean, Lorde was something, but Imagine Dragons are just insanely more Radioactive — at least in this humble person's opinion. I was introduced to their music while watching Chuck, It's Time was playing in the background, and I simply had to grab my phone to SoundHound that tune.

Ship Just Got Real: Leviathan Warships Hits The Play Store, Available For Most Tablets

About three weeks ago, Paradox Interactive released what could possibly be one of the best game trailers we've ever seen. It was for its then-upcoming game Leviathan Warships, and was chock-full of more ship puns than you can shake a stick at.

In fact, it was so good they decided to release a second trailer, with even more puns.

If you've had enough puns (I'm kidding – there's no such things as too many puns) and are ready to actually play the game, it's now available in the Play Store. The second trailer above notes a price of $10, but it's listed for $4.88 right now – most likely a launch sale price.

What Hath Science Wrought: Behold Samsung's Phone-Crushing Automatic Ass-Bot

It seems to be a growing trend among manufacturers to show off the process behind creating their products. Today, Samsung joined the ranks, bringing us an inside look of the stress test process that the company's moneymaker undergoes. To ensure that every Galaxy S III can stand up to all the punishment you can throw at it, there are a number of machines that attempt to scratch, crack, or soak the handset to see how well it can hold up. Oh, yeah, and there's an automated ass that sits on the phone over and over again.

If you've ever seen a stress test video, there won't be much here that's entirely shocking, though this clip is in Korean.
