We've all seen the hilarious eCards that pop up on sites like Facebook, Twitter, and reddit (over and over and over...), but you may not know that they come from Someecards. The company has an iOS app, but otherwise the only way to get the hilarious goods right to your mobile device was to visit the site directly. Not anymore, as the company released an Android app a few weeks ago to little fanfare.
This is rather fitting given the fact that the official Daily Show app hit the Play Store earlier today. Jon Stewart talks about Google's Project Glass (turns out that this is actually old technology), Facebook's acquisition of Instagram, and then he gets school on why Instagram is so cool.
Enough banter, the video speaks for itself. Enjoy.
Do you love The Daily Show? Do you love apps? Would you love an app that let you watch some of the The Daily Show's best moments on your mobile? If you answered yes, sure, I guess, whatever, eh, or any other semi-positive affirmation to any of the above questions, then you're in luck! The Daily Show Headlines app just hit the Play Store.
The Daily Show Headlines gives you access some of the top stories that Jon Stewart and The Best F&*@ing News Team Ever has to offer, along with a clip archive, upcoming guest news, digital exclusives, and schedule alerts.
We share most funny videos via our social accounts (you're following, right?), but once in a while a video comes along that is so beyond hilarious that it can no longer be the outcast doomed to bounce around social networks. It needs to be right here, on the front page. Such was the case with the best phone review on the Internet and such is the case with Mr. BPJ.
You see, Big Papa Joe loves Samsung. Specifically, he loves TouchWiz. Loves. BPJ is either a professional troll (if so, he needs get out on stage at a local comedy club) or is truly comical without even realizing it.
I'm not sure how season two of Fact Checkers Unit escaped our attention back in January, but thanks to Samsung's official blog which highlighted this hilarious series today, we now know better. And let me tell you, if you haven't seen any of the new episodes yet, you're in for a treat.
Fact Checkers Unit started as a short film with Bill Murray, then turned into a web series (Hulu has the first season episodes as well), and thanks to Samsung, MTV, SXM Entertainment, and Moxie Pictures has now reached season two. All five episodes of this season maintain high production quality mixed with occasional Galaxy Note usage scenarios and top notch humor that is sure to crack a smile on your face.
What we have here today is probably the most hysterical unofficial review of
the Galaxy Note any phone, ever. Of course, I welcome you to beat it (just leave a link in the comments), but my memory does not have a record of a performance that could rival this one by ELPRESADOR.
I won't spoil it for you further. Just watch. It's pure gold.
In Eric's words: "I want to hear this guy do football commentary."
First off, this is all in good fun. Any intelligent person could draw the conclusions this author did based on what was happening at the time, and with the limited information available about Google's plans for Android. We're posting this because it's funny to look back on it with some hindsight.
Back in 2009, Android's fate was anything but decided in the eyes of the tech journalism world, and many took a dismal view of Google's purchase of the young upstart open-source mobile operating system. What could Google, a website, possibly do with a mobile phone OS? This 2009 PCMag article, titled "Has Android Already Failed?" has some real gems, including speculation that Android is doomed, and, in what is news to us, headed to netbooks:
It's no secret that Verizon's LTE network is the fastest and largest mobile data network in the U.S. (can't say it's the most reliable though), but to make sure every Tom, Dick, and Harry knows about this, the company has rolled out a batch of LTE commercials featuring slogans such as "Instant Results," "Just Like That," "What You Want. Now," and "It's That Fast."
And what do you know - they're actually quite funny.
It's Sunday night, and as the news fairy is getting ready to go to sleep, I'm really itching to highlight a few things that caught my attention earlier today, for those who aren't following us on Twitter, Facebook, or Google+ (really, you should be).
1. Entrance Music
Have you ever wanted to be greeted by your own entrance music the same way boxers do when they enter the ring? Imagine music from Rocky or Eye Of The Tiger starts playing at your desk, and 10 seconds later you roll into the office like a champ.
fat_bloated_jesus from reddit has been doing just that for some time now, using a Jambox (which is a Bluetooth speaker), his Android device, and Tasker:
Every once in a while we get a humorous tip that is just too good to pass up. Check out what happens when you translate "Android 2.3.4" from German to English with Google Translate:
Whoops! It looks like you'll get the same result when you search for any version with 3 digits, from 2.2.1 to 2.3.4. Hit the link below to see it for yourself.
