Goosebumps VR App Takes A Scary Drive Through The Play Store Wearing Google Cardboard

In horror movies, things leap out at you. The same is true with scary books. Take Goosebumps. A 90s kid could not walk through a library, book store, yard sale, or a box of hand-me-downs with at least one novel in the series jumping out at them. And like a horde of zombies, those books knew there was strength in numbers. It doesn't matter how many R.L. Stine actually created, that number is half as much as what it felt like he did.

[Update: More Balls] After T-Mobile, Sprint Also Takes Exception To Verizon's Balls In A New TV Ad

Considering its reliance on many, many balls, Verizon's latest network comparison ad is fairly innocuous. It uses statistics from a Root Metrics study to boast about Verizon's wireless coverage and performance in relation to its competitors AT&T, Sprint, and T-Mobile. The ad is obviously intended to make Verizon look good, and the combination of a condescending voice-over and an elaborate visualization are particularly disparaging to the cheaper, smaller networks.
