Stop Worrying About Creeps Calling [App Of The Day]

Burner: Stop Worrying About Creeps CallingEveryone’s been there. You politely talk to some weirdo in a bar, and when the conversation ends, the guy wants your number. You’re nice and you don’t know how to say no. So you give it away reluctantly, and it can’t be fake, because he’s going to call you immediately so you have his digits too. Ugh. But because of a new app called Burner, you’ll never have to experience that horror ever again.

What does it do?

Gives you a fake number to use that you can give out freely because you can kill the number whenever you want.

Why do we like it?

It’s not just for fending off randoms. You could also use Burner when you’re making a Craigslist transaction, going on an OKCupid date, searching for a job, or completing a drug deal if you’re into that. You can use whichever area code you want, so if you want to fool a girl into thinking you’re an out of towner that she’ll never see again, you can do that (you asshole). It comes with enough credits for one number, but you can always buy more for $2 each. You never know when you’ll have to defend your phone.

According to SAI sources, the following exchange is between a 19-year-old Mark Zuckerberg and a friend shortly after Mark launched The Facebook in his dorm room:

Zuck: Yeah so if you ever need info about anyone at Harvard

Zuck: Just ask.

Zuck: I have over 4,000 emails, pictures, addresses, SNS

[Redacted Friend’s Name]: What? How’d you manage that one?

Zuck: People just submitted it.

Zuck: I don’t know why.

Zuck: They “trust me”

Zuck: Dumb fucks.

NYTimes: chart of Facebook Privacy Options – too complex for most people to figure out and use appropriately.

Charlie O’Donnell: “By the time of this post is done, Diaspora, the web decentralization play from four NYU/Courant students in New York, will undoubtedly have $100,000 raised on Kickstarter.  Over and above that, it seems like they’re on a clear path towards a million dollars.  Think I’m poking the bear?  I’m dead serious.  You watch.  A week from now, they get to seven digits.  Why?  Because the ire over Facebook’s privacy issues, platform aggression, etc. is real.  If you’re concerned about Facebook, these guys are your heroes.”
