Twitter feed of the week – possibly the year – has got to be Text-Only Instagram, which gently pokes fun at Instagram and the kind of photos you often see there.

You will emerge from the experience only fractionally the wiser, and quite a lot more confused than you were at the beginning. Don’t worry, this is perfectly normal.

Rejected: The Mountain Lions Apple Left Behind [Humor]



With all the news about OS X Mountain Lion, one can only wonder which felines didn’t make the cut for Apple’s next-gen operating system. Luckily, iPhoneSavior managed to get its hands on exclusively leaked images of all the rejected cats. As you can see, there were several great candidates.

Personally, I would have liked to have seen this great image in every copy of Mountain Lion:
