Bloating? There’s an app for that.
It can be the most frightnening four words a man can ever hear: “I’m on my period.” This natural occurrence can unfortunately causes billions of women to behave for a few days in a manner which they would not normally behave. Many companies have tried to take advantage of this recurring occasion to make a buck or two, and Apple is the latest to throw their hat in the ring.
The Apple iPad provides all the protection of a regular Maxi pad, with a few added features to bring the product into the digital age. The starter kit includes a very small Bluetooth device, which attaches to the iPad, that sends a signal to other iPad wearers. In studies conducted by the company, women who are both wearing iPads are very likely to have their menstrual cycles occur at the same time through a proprietary process Apple calls “cyc sync.”
The company promises future features such as the ability to upload stats to Facebook and automatically friend your “cyc sync” contacts.
According to Apple spokeswoman Lisa March, “studies have shown that women who share their common struggle form a bond that helps each to improve their own condition. Women can share tips on medicine and other treatment options that make the time more bearable.”
