The love pros at eHarmony have invented an app that calls with a fake ‘emergency’ when you need to escape a lame date.
You can set Bad Date Rescue to call in 5 minutes, 1 minute or just 3 seconds if things are really dire. You get to choose from a list of eminently plausible situations – your mum’s calling to say your sis is in labour, or your neighbour with the bad news your flat is flooded.
eHarmony have though of everything. It’ll look like an entirely normal call, even with the caller’s picture if you have one in your contacts, and there’s a fake voice on the other end, helping you beat a very realistic retreat.
Fellody is a new social networking service that connects people with similar taste in music. It compares the music on people’s computers and ranks the highest matches in your area. The system is clever enough to ignore the songs you never play and if you want to keep your guilty listening pleasures a secret, you can choose the songs within your music library that will be matched.
