When I tried googling this subject - to find out what telling it to would do, you understand - it became rather obvious that yes, yes it could...
Apparently you can hook something called a "fleshlight" - which I assume is not a simple one letter substitution - to your iPad and download some app or other. It's times like this that make me glad I don't own any iProducts, and clearly confirms the general view of hipsters that do.

In this morning's email, I received a missive[^] from Microsoft lauding the accomplishments of female inventors. To say the least, they missed a few. They mentioned Ada Lovelace[^] , but missed others who are key to our industry :

Unfortunately not everybody sees the world that way.
It began as a massive protest by women who wanted better working conditions, better pay, and the right to vote. But since then, the holiday has evolved into a day of awareness on women's progress in the ongoing fight for gender equality, and a day to address issues across the globe that directly affect women.
Quite the other way around.
Men get to vote, are allowed to have jobs, they get paid more for the same jobs, they get jobs easier, they are less often (sexually) assaulted, and they are overall taken more seriously than women.
For some reason (*cough*religion*cough*) both men and women alike have oppressed women and limited their life's choices.
It's time women got a little push in the back to close the social gap that, unfortunately, still exists between men and women.
As I understood men are mean and sexist pigs and don't deserve their own day
