The Guardian: The UK’s electronic eavesdropping and security agency, GCHQ, has been secretly gathering intelligence from the world’s biggest internet companies through a covertly run operation set up by the United State’s spy agency, documents obtained by the Guardian reveal.

The documents show…

This is much deeper than the US. If you believe the UK is the only other country in on this operation… you’re ignorant to the facts.

So I heard about this app this morning on Hot 95.7 in Houston and was curious as to what it was about. I’m a tech junkie so when I come across a new app or device, I’m automatically tempted to try it out. This particular app is called Tinder and honestly, it’s been done. Over and over and over again. “Nearby people” discovery apps are here to stay and this just reinforces that idea. 
Other alternatives include
OkCupid
Plenty Of Fish
How About We
Badoo
Blendr (co-ed) / Grindr (gay men)
Zoosk
Skout (largest location-based app)
Tagged
Are You Interested
Jazzed / eHarmony
Sonar
etc…
Clearly, there’s no shortage of these types of apps. The only real advantage between Tinder and a majority of these apps (but not all) is that like Bang With Friends, a user will never know that you “liked” them unless they “like” you back.
Give it a shot if you’re bored and want to kill some time: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/tinder/id547702041?mt=8
Oh and for you users on Android looking for a comparable app, check out Swipe.
