    You guys forgot a lot. The update brings a new app icon and all new UI update. It’s very subtle, but almost every element of the UI is new. Things are much tighter and sharper.

    Hahaha…. I tried to use Pinterest but I was confused and stopped This confirms my overwhelming manliness.

    People who base sexuality on how others use the web are idiots.

      He’s joking bro, lighten up.

      • Verizon

        I get that he, and others, consider the implication to be funny. When you’ve had friends and family struggle with their sexuality it just doesn’t come across the same. I get that I’m being a horrible buzz kill at what was supposed to be a joke, but I don’t see a lot of humor in it, just homophobia.

    I find the anti-Pinterest comments hilarious. Those making them have obviously never really used it. I keep a boards on tattoos (for ideas on my next), beards (proper grooming is a must when your goatee is a 9″ long), poker (tips and strategies), recipes (eating homemade chips with a super hot buffalo dip right now), beer and liquor (always nice to find something new or different), lingerie (something nice for the wife) and of course tech (good apps or ideas for what is coming next).

    It isn’t just a bunch of pictures. It is more like a bookmarking site that allows you to share what you find with others. I’ve had my wife buy things for me just because I pinned it. I’ve had buddies find a new favorite beer. It is all about how you use it.

      Excellent reply.
      Until today I said “Pinterest was made by men so women could make them better sandwiches,” which is funny in the right crowd, but probably not too funny deep down. I’ll create an account and look for some interesting stuff to pin. My wife loves Pinterest of course, and she’s always showing me stuff she pinned. Thanks for making me think about it.

    I don’t care what any of you say, this app looks very nice and works well.

    You have to give it to your girlfriend. She’ll need it to get you another beer from that custom-made, man-only beer fridge you found on Pinterest, while you grill something so delicious that it would kill a lesser man. Oh and that grilling recipe? Pinterest.

    Do you even grill, bro?

    I give these guys a lot of credit. My mother-in-law can’t operate her ultra low end smartphone, doesn’t have a computer at home, but knows she needs Pinterest. they must be something right.

    You guys are shooting yourselves in the feet by not having a Pinterest. The whole point of a man having a Pinterest isn’t to pin things. Its to get an understanding of the women you are interested in. Girls put a ton of information on there, what they like, what they dislike, dreams, hopes, wishes, etc. You make yourself more interesting to them by being able to comment, intelligently, on the things that they may be interested in, WITHOUT them knowing how you know. Amateurs.

      “without them knowing how you know” – creeper alert

      • Ronaldo

        Love this comment. I lul’d.

        You just made his list.

          Lighten up Francis!

      The problem is what women want changes every 10 minutes. That’s why all you really need to know is “be spontaneous” – there you can keep any attractive woman now.

      If I had a Pinterest: Guns, Meat, Woodworking, and Angling

    If Droid Life ever wanted to know how many female readers they have, this post should give us a good indication. No self respecting man has a Pinterest. That service is basically ESPN for girls.

      1:32 left in the 3rd, Mini Skirts have the upper hand on Neat Wine Bottle Decor 10 to 7.

        Dude, I think you may have just found a feature that would make Pinterest cool.

      Is it just me, or is watching sports much less entertaining than playing them?
