  • HODOR!

    HODOR!

    Stop. the. presses. Yo, the ridiculously simple messaging app that lets you send a “Yo” to your friends and nothing more, has a new rival. (Or perhaps a more appropriate word would be “parody.”) Introducing Yo, Hodor. As the name implies, this recently launched app offers a different spin on the Yo concept by letting you virtually shout “HODOR!” to… Read More

    Google Nest Parody Protest Site Holds A Funhouse Mirror Up To The Search Giant

    Update: Google has provided the following statement clarifying its filing, described below – We are in contact with the SEC to clarify the language in this 2013 filing, which does not reflect Google’s product roadmap.  Nest, which we acquired after this filing was made, does not have an ads-based model and has never had any such plans.

    Saturday Night Live Takes On Google Glass

    This Facebook Phone Parody Actually Makes Some Good Points

    Well, that didn’t take long – Facebook Home is already being parodied on YouTube, in a video which actually ends up making a few biting comments about the potential problems the new application will face. For example, will the promised monthly updates to Facebook Home end up confusing users as to the basics of how their phone operates? Where will the ads (you know they’re… Read More

  • It’s Not The Size Of The iPad That Matters, It’s The Motion Of The Ocean

    It’s Not The Size Of The iPad That Matters, It’s The Motion Of The Ocean

    Yes, we know that Apple is probably maybe releasing an iPad Mini soon. It’s not an iPhone, but larger. It’s not an iPad, but smaller. It’s…the Mini. Prepare yourself for thousands of parodies about the product, but this one is just too good not to post. It’s slightly NSFW in that suggestive way, but if you work somewhere where you can get in trouble for this… Read More

    A Sneak Peek At The New Yahoo Home Page Redesign?

  • Ping Gets Its Own 'The Social Network' Parody

    From the very same Internet that brought you The Twitter Movie, The YouTube Movie, The Auction Site Movie and The Other Social Network Movie comes today’s Ping parody: Another Social Network Movie. Something tells me that people are just going to keep making these parodies of David Fincher’s The Social Network until they run out of websites. Can’t wait to see what people come… Read More

  • Video: ‘To Catch a Pirate’ is like ‘To Catch a Predator,’ only with pirates

    Another day, another fun video. Today’s is “To Catch a Pirate,” a clever parody of the hit American TV show that’s “devoted to the subject of identifying and detaining those who contact people they believe to be below the age of consent over the Internet for sexual liaisons.” Only this time, we’re dealing with filthy pirates. Software pirates, to be exact. Read More

  • Video: Lenovo's humorous take on the MacBook Air

    Lenovo pretty much sums up my opinion of the MacBook air in this very clever, very cheeky parody of that Air commercial you’ve been seeing for the last two months. In it, an Air is taken out of an manila envelope, just as Steve the Great did at MacWorld in January. Then, all the components it’s missing (optical drive, 3G wireless, etc.) are plugged into a hub, which is plugged into… Read More
