The funniest thing you’ll see today: Elderly people react to the Oculus Rift

“My God, I’m not going to electrocute myself, am I?” That was the initial reaction of an elderly gentleman when one of The Fine Brothers handed him an Oculus Rift virtual reality headset and asked for his reaction. One elderly woman wondered aloud if the Rift was a “space mask” or “something you wear for the Ebola crisis.”

The Fines are known far and wide for their reaction videos on YouTube, which show kids, teens or the elderly reacting to different things. Recent offerings that were particularly hilarious include teens reacting to the Internet of the 1990s and elderly people reacting to Google Glass.

Now, the Fine Brothers are back and they’ve brought the Facebook-owned Oculus Rift VR headset with them. More →

This is how an Apple fanboy and former employee introduced his baby to the world

One of the things Apple is known for is its attention to detail especially when it comes to crafting marketing materials that sell its devices, including the elaborate “show” Apple puts on its website for highlighting the main features of a newly announced product. And what better way for a former Apple employee Andreas Kleinke to introduce to his baby boy to the world than by replicating Apple’s iPad mini page and replacing the tablet with his own mini, Jonathan Henry.

Ballmer’s speech to Clippers fans is just as hilariously insane as you hoped

In his opening remarks to fans of the NBA team, Ballmer talked about how much he loves Los Angeles and explained why he loved fans for loving the Clippers due to their underdog status compared with the crosstown Lakers.

Hilarious video compilation of botched FedEx deliveries will make you laugh and cry

We’ve seen plenty of videos featuring awful FedEx deliveries over the years but we don’t think we’ve ever seen them put together in one horrifying package. Thankfully for us, YouTube user RSVLTS has decided to do the dirty work and make a video compilation of every single terrible FedEx delivery he could find on the Internet, including one delivery man who punts a box onto a house’s roof and another who just tosses a box containing a giant computer monitor over a fence.

This hideous Sony Google TV remote is Apple’s poster boy for terrible design choices

Apple’s dedication to simplicity and elegance has been evident for quite some time. From the company’s first computers to its most recent portable devices, Apple has always put design first. But how does it instill those same values in its employees decades later? Reporting for The New York Times, Brian X. Chen was able to spend a day inside Apple University, the company’s internal training program which includes full-time faculty members who create and teach their own courses and attempt to pass on the values of the founders from one generation of employees to the next.

Travel in Westeros would be so much easier with this proposed Game of Thrones subway system

Complex transit maps are usual daily sightings, but few of them are actually artsy, as they have a more useful purpose in mind. However, graphic designer Michael Tyznik has come up with a unique, and very interesting, subway and rail map, which may be the best you’ve ever seen so far. Too bad public transportation isn’t actually possible in that particular location, at least not as the designer imagined it. More →

The funniest thing you’ll watch today: Team Coco builds an iPad from household items

Apple’s iPad is a great tablet, quite possibly the best on the market, but it’s also one of the most expensive. There are now countless affordable Android tablets available from every vendor imaginable, which makes it even harder to justify the purchase of an iPad, but what if you could build one yourself just using items lying around the house? Comedian Matt Walsh, host of Team Coco DIY on Conan O’Brien’s website, will walk you through the shockingly repulsive process which he says should only take around 30 minutes. More →

The funniest thing you’ll see today: Stephen Colbert reviews the Kardashian game

Kim Kardashian: Hollywood is the name of a mobile game that took app stores by storm earlier this year, despite the fact that it doesn’t really bring any actual value to gamers who may be on the constant lookout for new releases for their smartphones and tablets. What the game did do, however, was boost the share price of Glu Mobile by 50% last month, adding more than $100 million to its market cap, with some reports saying that Kardashian herself stands to make some $85 million from the title, which is available as a free download.
