WhatsApp devs Troll Apple with a hidden ‘F#*( you’ in source code

WhatsApp has a gang of badass developers – but it seems not all of them are particularly crazy about Apple.
Messing around with the WhatsApp APK, Redditor xMarioZ came across an eloquent snippet of code that reads, “###### APPLE.”
The saucy piece of code appears on numerous occasions throughout the APK installation file for Android and was most likely left by WhatsApp’s dev team for their colleagues over at Apple.
While it’s unclear whether the message is merely playful banter or something more serious, Redditors speculate it might have something to do with Apple’s ridiculously strict App Store regulations.
All speculations aside, I absolutely don’t mind the coders’ inventive humour (or possibly rage) – it certainly got a laugh from me. Let’s just hope there’s no bad blood between the two companies.
It’s actually odd that WhatsApp’s quality assurance team didn’t flag the cheeky message; but whether they missed it or simply let it fly, I’m sort of glad it’s there – for fun’s sake.

Buyer claims new OnePlus 3 handset came pre-loaded with porn
by Vlad Dudau
OnePlus is known for creating affordable, high-end devices that come without any Android bloatware and offer a clean and simple experience for users. But it looks like there’s another experience that customers may get out of their new OnePlus phones, as one Reddit user found his new OnePlus 3 to be filled with porn.
According to a poster on Reddit, the user received his new OnePlus 3 handset only to find that it was pre-loaded with NSFW pictures and even a NSFW video. On top of that, other miscellaneous files, such as archives and some images of anime were also loaded onto the phone.
Now you might think that OnePlus was offering the user a special edition of the device, but as the original poster explained, the NSFW content “wasn’t even HD”. Plus, the owner of the images and video, which the Reddit user also posted online, seems to be himself in the images.
Now this isn’t the first time that new device came pre-loaded with peculiar content. At one point a number of iPhones famously shipped with images of the factory workers from China who were testing the devices while in production. And testing devices and their cameras is a normal part of the QA process. Though in this case someone seems to have taken things a bit too far.
The (un)lucky buyer said he wants to hear from OnePlus on this matter, so we’ve contacted the company to see if they wished to comment. We’ll update this post if and when they do.
Until then, giving your new devices a wipe right out of the box may not be such a bad idea.

NeoBytes :) Pornhub introduces the "BangFit," helps you bang to get fit
by Justin Luna
NeoBytes :) is an occasional feature that takes a step back from the big headlines, to take a look at what else is happening in the vast, scary expanse of the tech world - often with a cynical eye, always with a dose of humour.
With the fast advancement of technology today, fitness trends have also risen, which brought in products like fitness watches and health bands. These contraptions aim to help us monitor our health more accurately, and help keep us fit.
Adult video website Pornhub had this in mind, and has come up with the "BangFit," a gizmo that aims to introduce a new way of getting fit, while probably having the time of your life. The BangFit system provides users with "sexercise" videos they can follow along to, and monitor how many calories they are burning while doing the deed along the way.
How does it work? A user can access the BangFit web application here, and then sync to be able to access the game on their phones. The game can be played by up to three players. The user (or users) can now choose their "sexercise," with the amount of calories you can burn being displayed on each act. Now this where the "BangFit" comes in. Players will have to strap in their phones into the BangFit belt to measure how they are doing while performing the "sexercises," and the system grants the player(s) points for their performance. Each game will last for at least 30 minutes.
According to Pornhub, the BangFit band is still bound to be available soon, and the web app is still in beta.
Pornhub is not new to these kinds of ideas. Back in February of 2015, they introduced the "Wankband," a smartwatch that collects energy when moved in an up and down motion. Further, the company even planned to take their business into greater heights by attempting to raise funds for a space porn project.
