A new record has been set by a participant in the New York City Marathon. Jimmy Jenson is the first person with Down syndrome to cross the finish line, the Today Show reports.

The 48-year-old from Los Angeles completed the race along side his close friend, Jennifer Davis. The two met 12 years prior through a program called Best Buddies that connects those with intellectual disabilities with those without.

After completing the marathon in just over eight hours, Jenson stayed at the finish line to encourage runners behind him to not give up and to finish the race.

3D touch on the iPhone 6 allows you to weigh things directly on your phone, but for some reason, Apple doesn't want people building scale apps. Many have tried, but been rejected by the app store because Apple says "the concept of a scale app is not appropriate for the app store," whatever that means. Asaf Avidan Antonir built a simple game that uses 3D touch to move a dot between lines (think Flappy Bird), but the important part is the "training" function. Within training mode, you can figure out how much force you're exerting to practice moving the dot, or just use the thing as a scale for...whatever you want.
