The funniest thing you’ll see today: Conan parodies Apple’s iPhone 6 commercial

It’s common knowledge that Apple takes its products very seriously. Tim Cook was uncharacteristically giddy on Tuesday as Apple unveiled a new line of devices, but the introduction videos showcasing the iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus and Apple Watch were as solemn and moody as anything the company has ever produced. No top 40 radio hits, no celebrity guests — just slow motion product shots and emotional piano music. More →

The funniest thing you’ll see today: Funny or Die has a solution for Apple’s iCloud woes

Quite possibly the biggest takeaway from the celebrity photo leak scandal from earlier in the week is that our information in the cloud is never as secure as we’d like it to be. No matter how much time and effort you put into protecting your data, there’s probably someone out there who can hack it. That’s why “Apple” (by way of Funny or Die) has decided to solve the problem once and for all. More →

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.

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.

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.
