Introducing the Split Decision App for iPhone and Android

We spent much of 2010 developing Split Decision, our party/trivia game of improbable pairings. We've spent much of this year working on the app version, and we're thrilled to announce it's now available for both iPhone and Android!

From the "hey guys, we have a new app out!" press release:

Split Decision is a new game for your phone where to win you just need to decide which of two unusual categories is nonsense, and which represents real knowledge! It's packed full of funny facts, entertaining trivia, and hundreds of questions to keep you guessing.

If you've been looking for a new diversion, give it a whirl. To download the app or learn more, go here.

Don't Have Space For a Christmas Tree? Decorate a Pineapple Instead

Christmas trees aren't for everyone. Some people can't fit a fir inside their cramped abodes, while others are turned off by the expense, or by the idea of bugs hitchhiking their way inside. Fake trees are always an option, but a new trend sweeping Instagram—pineapples as mini-Christmas "trees"—might convince you to forego the forest vibe for a more tropical aesthetic.

As Thrillist reports, the pineapple-as-Christmas-tree idea appears to have originated on Pinterest before it, uh, ripened into a social media sensation. Transforming a pineapple into a Halloween “pumpkin” requires carving and tea lights, but to make the fruit festive for Christmas all one needs are lights, ornaments, swaths of garland, and any other tiny tchotchkes that remind you of the holidays. The final result is a tabletop decoration that's equal parts Blue Hawaii and Miracle on 34th Street.

In need of some decorating inspiration? Check out a variety of “Christmas tree” pineapples below.
