Selfies you don't want to see at all

Here's what's wrong with the mainstream media, guys: "Nine selfies we'd like to see", and the first suggestion is Rob Ford.

No rear-facing camera on new iPod

The new iPod touch 4 features a 4-inch "Retina" display, 16GB of storage and a user-facing HD camera. There's no rear-facing one at all. Gone too is the old lanyard hook. There's a 21st Century datapoint for you: people take more photos of themselves than anything else! And they have abandoned their lanyards. [via The Verge]

In defense of the selfie

Sam Kassé defends the selfie, blight of social networks: "I know most people hate selfies. They groan and complain about them, from the duck lips to the filters. Why, just the word “selfie” can induce legendary amounts of eyerolling. What people seem to miss, is that selfies are actually great. No, scratch that, selfies are brilliant! One of my favourite pastimes at work is to (discreetly) scroll through my Instagram feed and see pictures of my friends feeling good about themselves."
