Every few weeks a new meme crops up online, providing a few good laughs before inevitably growing tiresome and forcing you to contemplate whether you want to continue paying your ISP for access to the Internet. Most only last a few days, some just a few hours, but every once in a while a seemingly limitless gold mine of a meme appears, and we’ve decided to highlight one in particular: Wasted GIFS. If you’re familiar with the Grand Theft Auto series, these should look familiar. If not, don’t worry — you’ll catch on soon enough. More →
Advertising wars are so much fun! Late yesterday, Motorola took another swipe at smartphone rival Apple, capitalizing on the free-case fiasco of the iPhone 4. In a Facebook post, the company displayed a poster that read:
At Motorola, we believe a customer shouldn’t have to dress up their phone for it to work properly. That’s why the DROID X comes with a dual antenna design. The kind that allows you to hold the phone any way you like to make crystal clear calls without a bulky phone jacket. For us it’s just one of those things that comes as a given when you’ve been making mobile phones for over 30 years.
Burn. The first ad Motorola put out was a little tongue and cheek, however this one is a sharp stick to the eye… a very funny sharp stick to the eye. We’ve got the full-sized image after the bounce.
Apparently Motorola thinks the antenna issues that are plaguing the iPhone 4 are a laughing matter. Based upon this full page ad that was published in today’s New York Times, we’d have to agree.
“[…] And most importantly, it comes with a double antenna design. The kind that allows you to hold the phone any way you like and use it just about anywhere to make crystal clear calls. You have a voice. And you deserve to be heard.“
That’s gotta sting a bit, no? Hit the bounce to check out the ad in full-sized glory!
Thanks, A.! More →
