Video: HBO’s Silicon Valley reveals the worst insult you can give a product: ‘Apple Maps bad’

If you haven’t yet watched the brilliance that is HBO’s Silicon Valley, do yourself a favor and start tuning in. While the show is funny in its own right, it’s especially funny for anyone with even a passing interest in tech culture.

In case you missed it, last week’s episode of Silicon Valley had a little bit of fun at Apple’s expense.

The setup for the Apple-related humor is as follows: When a Nucleus backed UFC livestream goes awry, Nucleus CEO Gavin Belson demands answers.

Top 10 Wrong Number Texts

These are some of the most hilariously awkward wrong number texts you’ll ever see

These are some of the most hilariously awkward wrong number texts you’ll ever see

In the age of smartphones, it seems odd that text messages would be sent to wrong numbers as often as they are. There are some instances where wrong number texts make sense. For example, when someone changes phones and gets a new number, it stands to reason that whoever ends up with their old number might get a few messages intended for the number’s original owner.

But wrong number texts happen much more frequently than that, and thankfully for us, they’re often hilarious. More →

Tim Cook Graduation Speech

Tim Cook trolls Android users during George Washington University commencement speech

Tim Cook trolls Android users during George Washington University commencement speech

Over the weekend, Tim Cook was the keynote speaker at the George Washington University graduation. In typical fashion, the bulk of Cook’s speech focused on broad and important themes such as equality, social change, civil rights, and correcting injustices where and whenever it arises.

“Sidelines are not where you want to live your life, Cook said. “The world needs you in the arena. There are problems that need to be solved. Injustices that need to be ended. People that are still being persecuted.”

But before Cook got into the meat and potatoes of an otherwise inspiring speech, he couldn’t help but have a little but of fun at the expense of anyone in the crowd who just so happened to be carrying a non-iPhone smartphone, which in this day and age pretty much means Android and Windows Phones (sorry BlackBerry).

The short video, which stars well-known comedian David Koechner from The Office, imagines what the world would be like if everything was bundled like pay TV. More →

Hilarious: What if your mom were as dependable as Siri?

Siri, Apple’s voice-activated virtual assistant that’s available on many devices including iPhone, iPad and Apple Watch, isn’t always as accurate as you’d want it to be, although it desperately tries to understand you. Apple is going to further improve Siri in future iOS releases, just as Google and Microsoft are constantly improving their own Siri alternatives, including Google Now and Cortana. While you’re waiting for Siri to become even better in helping you with daily chores, you can check out a hilarious new video that imagines what it would be like if your mom were as dependable as Siri.

Watch Jon Stewart lay into Tom Brady for knowing about ‘Deflategate’

After months of deliberation, we finally know the truth — the Patriots more probably than not deflated those footballs, and Tom Brady almost definitely knew about it. It’s a shame that full-grown, well-paid adults felt the need to cheat their way through the AFC Championship Game, but that’s the world that we live in.

Thankfully, Brady and his cohorts aren’t getting out of this one without some not-so-kind words from the peanut gallery that is the media. More →

Video: Conan figured out how to fix a major problem with the Apple Watch

A few days ago, Apple acknowledged the fact that the Apple Watch will not work properly on tattooed wrists, something users have discovered on their own. Specifically, the heart rate sensor placed on the back of the device might not be able to perform any readings depending on the ink used, and there’s really no way to have this issue fix.

Thankfully, Conan’s creative team has figured out a way to make the Apple Watch work even for people with inked wrists. More →

The funniest thing you’ll see today: Elders react to Mortal Kombat X fatalities

Mortal Kombat X is one of the most popular games of 2015 so far… and it’s also one of the most gory and violent games of 2015 so far. As such, there’s probably not a better game out there for The Fine Brothers to record elders playing — so that’s exactly what they did in the most recent entries in their popular YouTube reaction series.

Even better, the brothers also filmed elders reacting to all of the fatalities in Mortal Kombat X, which are easily the most gruesome finishing moves the Mortal Kombat franchise has seen to date. More →
