Microsoft Weirdly Announces Bra That Helps With Stress Eating

By: Lawrence Bonk

Do you find yourself overeating due to the daily stressors of modern life? Are you obsessed with the latest and greatest developments in technology? Are you a woman and don't mind being pandered to? Microsoft's new "smartbra" is for you.
