The funniest thing you’ll see today: Songify the News #8

One of my personal favorite YouTube channels over the past several years has been Schmoyoho, creators of the acclaimed Auto-Tune the News series and the Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt theme song. Although that series ended in 2010, The Gregory Brothers rebooted the auto-tuned insanity in 2012 with the first episode of Songify the News.

The funniest thing you’ll see today: The best TV news bloopers of the year

There’s something undeniably enthralling about watching newscasters embarrass themselves on live TV. When you’re on air as often as a news anchor, screw-ups are inevitable — but that hasn’t tempered our fascination in the slightest, which is why we figured it would be a good idea to share a video of all the best local and national news bloopers of 2014.

‘Wasted’ GIFs are the funniest thing on the Internet right now – here are the 10 best ones

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.

Motorola takes another swipe at iPhone 4, 'no jacket required' for DROID X

Motorola takes another swipe at iPhone 4, 'no jacket required' for DROID X

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.

DROID X ad takes a shot at iPhone 4 antenna woes

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 →
