1.) The ultimate demise of ex LA Police Officer/murderer Christopher Dorner certainly came thanks to the help of a few civilians, but will anyone be given the $1 million dollar reward offered by LA’s mayor? Certainly the maids who entered what they thought was an empty cabin, only to be tied up by the fugitive, should be considered. One escaped, which lead police to the cabin. But hold on – the reward stipulates it’s for information leading to the "capture and conviction" of Dorner, who is believed to have died before being convicted of anything. Similar wording applies to two lesser awards of $100,000 each. In the end, it's a judgment call, depending on how generous the mayor's office and the organizations that donated the money are feeling.
2.) Just in time for Valentine’s Day comes the mobile application KillSwitch. The app allows users who are still Facebook friends with their exes to eliminate all traces of that person from their timelines. As long as both parties are still Facebook friends, KillSwitch will scour the user’s profile of all content tagged with their former significant other’s Facebook ID. Users can then choose to delete all content, manually choose which content to delete, or store everything in KillSwitch folders on their Facebook accounts, that only they can see. The app launches today for iOS and Android.
3.) It’s on right now in Thailand – an attempt to break the Guinness World Record for the world's longest continuous kiss. This is the 3rd year of this competition, and 12 couples are participating. The record was set last year by a gay male couple who locked lips for 50 hours, 25 minutes and one second. Among the rules of the competition – no bathroom breaks for the first three hours. After that, participants are expected to have their lips locked, with a referee accompanying them to a bathroom especially designed for this contest. If the contestants' lips separate, they are out. The couples are only allowed to drink water through a straw during the competition.
