They deserve a powerful app packed full of extra functionality.

They deserve themes to keep things festive and, perhaps most importantly, EMOJI because they deserve to have some fun too.

Sure, TFLN-browsing is a kind of embarrassing habit to announce to the online world, but hey, we’re willing to bet that you do it, too. So take the judgment that you were so totally directing at us, and focus it upon these people.

Berkeley makes up a pretty sizable portion of the 510 area code, so who knows: This could be your neighbor. (Or you.) read more »

So the other night on College Avenue we saw this bearded, inebriated-seeming 20-something male peddling his circa ’85 Peugeot hands free, due north.

text while driving! Alright, we’ll knock it off with the Santa jokes as soon as it’s no longer December, or as soon as we’re not too lazy to think of something better. But, seriously, come Jan. 1, texting behind the wheel will be a bigger faux pas than bustin’ out a Nativity pun at a Jewish funeral in April. Yeah. We said it. read more »
