If you’ve ever used iMessage, the proprietary messaging platform for Apple devices such as the iPhone, you’ve probably developed an opinion (or a refined lack of opinion) about its “read receipts” feature. They’re based on a simple idea—what if you could automatically notify people that you had seen their…

The best wedding proposals involve things that you both care about. Memes, drones, and so forth. This proposal is especially cute because photographer Jerrit Pruyn combined his love for cameras with his love for his girlfriend. He etched 'Marry Me' inside his camera so when his girlfriend looked inside, she'd be…
I don't even... This is just... I can't believe... okay. Breathe. Some guy used Vine and Twitter to propose to his girlfriend. As in he recorded a six second Vine video (selfie?) asking her to marry him, with a ring and everything. She didn't say no.
When I think of romantic, when I think of heartwarming, when I think of being sweet... I don't think of drones. But if I think of awesome and if I think of kickass and if I think of freaking cool...

When Michael Moragne decided to propose to his girlfriend Amy, he wanted to give her a ring that reflected not just their love, but also their shared love of Battlestar Galactica.

Eddie Zarick is a clever man. First, he has a girlfriend who is a comic book nerd and loves Iron Man ("She always calls me Tony Stark for all of the projects I have going," he says). Second, he can make stuff like this cool motorized Iron Man arc reactor, which opens to reveal a proposal ring.
We've seen a marriage proposal that was filled with memes. We've seen a proposal that started from a plane crash. This proposal was done with a magic trick. Watch it. Sean Emory, an actual illusionist, pulled off the trick of a lifetime: he got a girl to marry him.
Here's a little aww to add to your Sunday. One Scott Pilgrim fan decided to propose to the boy she's in lesbians with during their trip to Toronto. Instead of fighting all of his exes, she decided to send him on a Scott Pilgrim-themed scavenger hunt, with a romantic prize at the end.
New York Time tech writer and nicked-iPhone-victim David Pogue is going to get married again. His proposal was simply amazing: He made a fake movie trailer with "a thinly veiled version" of the love story between him and his girlfriend. He then "persuaded the movie theater at a summer resort to play it before a…
One girl enjoying a sunny day at the Provo Dance Walk got a surprise when Spider-Man came to her rescue, defending her from a crew of laughing teddy bear thieves. And the surprise got even bigger when Spidey took off his mask and got down on one knee.
This is from last week, but since we missed it and today it's been such a bad Sunday, I wanted to end the day on a happy note: the most epic and tear-jerking marriage proposal I've ever seen.
