Here are the three worst phone names of all time: More →

PS4 vs. Xbox One: The ultimate showdown takes place tonight

Winning the heart, minds and wallets of gamers around the world is the easy part. Winning over Dr. Sheldon Cooper, on the other hand, is the ultimate challenge for the new console generation. Microsoft and Sony both launched their next-generation video game consoles ahead of the holidays last year, and both boxes have gotten off to a phenomenal start. The PlayStation 4 has clearly pulled ahead in terms of sales, while the Xbox One’s game selection still has an early edge. What will undoubtedly be the toughest task these great consoles have faced to date, however, is making their way into Sheldon and Leonard’s apartment on Thursday night’s episode of The Big Bang Theory.

It had to happen: ‘White Guys Wearin’ Oculus Rifts’

The Oculus Rift is an incredible device. I’ve only had a single experience with the VR headset, but within seconds I became a believer. Virtual reality is going to play a major role in the future of entertainment — in fact, even though the Rift isn’t going to see a retail release any time soon, it’s already providing joy for Buzzfeed’s Gaming Editor Joe Bernstein. Enter: White Guys Wearin’ Oculus Rifts. More →

iPhone Autocorrect Prank

Girl pulls most hilarious iPhone prank of all time on her mom

Girl pulls most hilarious iPhone prank of all time on her mom

In the history of hilarious iPhone autocorrect pranks, we’re not sure one has ever gone quite this well. Twitter user Makenzie (@goddamnirwin) was apparently tired of her mother messaging her constantly about bringing her dirty laundry downstairs to be washed. So, she configured an autocorrect shortcut in her mom’s iPhone that would always change “dirty clothes” to “acid.” Apparently her mother isn’t aware that tapping the “X” next to an autocorrect suggestion cancels it, so hilarity ensued… for a painfully long time.

Google Search Parody

Hilarious video shows what life would be like if Google Search was actually a person

Hilarious video shows what life would be like if Google Search was actually a person

Google Search has changed the way the world accesses information and in doing so, it also changed the way we think when querying for information. For example, we might ask a person on the street, “what time is it in Belize?” whereas the same question typed into Google might be, “current time Belize.” But what would life be like if Google Search was an actual person instead of just a short white box we fill with our various requests? According to a new video that imagines this very scenario, life would be pretty funny.

The 11 most hilariously bad autocorrect fails of 2014 so far (NSFW)

Smartphone software is constantly improving across the board with each new generation, but there’s one thing that we have always been able to rely on since the dawn of the modern handset: autocorrect is just awful. The technology was intended to minimize errors while typing on tiny smartphone keyboards or on glass screens, and sometimes it does its job quite well. But sometimes it really, really doesn’t.

Do yourself a favor and watch this hilarious 1981 TV report about the Internet

It’s easy to forget how far the Internet has come considering how plugged in we all are today thanks to laptops, smartphones and other connected devices, but we found a fantastic video that will no doubt serve as an eye-opening and hilarious reminder. “Imagine, if you will, sitting down to your morning coffee, turning on your home computer to see the day’s newspaper,” begins this report from KRON in San Francisco. “Well, it’s not as far-fetched as it may seem.” More →

iOS 7 Cause Of Death

iOS 7: The perfect mobile platform for murderers

iOS 7: The perfect mobile platform for murderers

Ok, so iOS 7 isn’t the most beloved software Apple has ever released. User experience experts don’t like it, design experts don’t like it and iOS app developers don’t like it. Murderers, however, should absolutely love Apple’s reimagining of the mobile experience. A new short film written and directed by Los Angeles-based director Alberto Belli puts a playful and somewhat disturbing spin on many of the issues users have been experiencing with iOS 7. They’re not bugs at all, according to Belli — they’re features… for killers. More →

The funniest Amazon product reviews of all time

Amazon users’ product reviews have helped guide millions of people as they researched various purchases, but sometimes they’re as entertaining as they are helpful. As such, Amazon recently compiled a list of the funniest product reviews on its site. “Helpful product reviews written by Amazon customers are the heart of Amazon.com, and we treasure the customers who work hard to write them,” Amazon wrote. “But occasionally customer creativity goes off the charts in the best possible way.” The site’s list includes some well-known items like the Hutzler 571 Banana Slicer that drew some of the most widely reported funny comments, but there are also a few obscure ones you might not have seen before. Amazon’s full list is linked below.

Thief swipes iPhones, leaves his own Samsung smartphone at the scene

Clearly, there are better ways to switch smartphone platforms. 25-year-old Travis Montgomery Snyder was arrested this week in Remington, Virginia after a police investigation into a local robbery led them to the man. According to The Washington Post, Snyder stands accused of a smash-and-grab robbery where the suspect broke a display case at a Springfield, Virginia wireless store and absconded with several iPhones. Unfortunately for the suspect, he also left his own Samsung smartphone at the scene. Fairfax County police reportedly traced the Galaxy phone’s subscription back to Snyder and then arrested him on Monday. “No word on whether he was seeking an upgrade,” The Post quipped.

Video: Daily Show’s Lewis Black mocks Google Glass, Xbox One over privacy

With all the controversy over the NSA’s massive data mining operations, comedian Lewis Black has turned his eye toward two of the most potentially invasive new technologies that are primed to hit the market soon: Google Glass and Microsoft’s new Kinect sensor that can track your facial expressions. On The Daily Show this week, Black ridiculed a Glass promotional video that showed a woman looking at jellyfish in an aquarium who then asked Google to do a search for “jellyfish.” More →

Microsoft Kin Focus Group

Internal videos show that Microsoft knew the Kin was total garbage before releasing it

Internal videos show that Microsoft knew the Kin was total garbage before releasing it

Remember the Kin One and Kin Two? We don’t blame you if you have no idea what we’re talking about. Back in 2010, Microsoft (MSFT) released two home-built social-driven smartphones aimed at teenagers. Less than two months later, Microsoft axed the phones, presumably because they were so terrible. Wired has uncovered three never before seen focus group videos that reveal just how awful the phones were during testing — plagued with issues that Microsoft didn’t remedy when the devices launched on Verizon (VZ). In one video, a guy complains about the lag, the slowness of the camera, and the terrible touchscreen responsiveness and in another video, a user clearly has issues dialing phone numbers because the Kin Two’s touchscreen is so buggy. After watching these videos, you really can’t decide whether you should be laughing until your guts spill out or crying because Microsoft was so clueless. Thankfully, Microsoft saw the light and gave up on the Kin phones to work on Windows Phone.
