    Google Home has stopped answering to that annoying Burger King ad

    The internet barely had time to be annoyed for that new 15 second Burger King ad before Google shut the whole thing down. A little over two hours after the fast food giant took the wraps off of a TV spot designed to trigger smart assistants across the country, the functionality no longer works. We’ve reached out to Google for confirmation of the action, which was likely just a quick fix… Read More

  • Your Edgy Startup Idea Is Stupid

    Your Edgy Startup Idea Is Stupid

    First it was glitter and dicks. Then it was on-demand everything. Then it was breasts. Startups, please: stop. 2015 has been the year of the awful idea. It began early on this year with a number of services that wanted to send your enemies glitter and cardboard penises. They had all the trappings of a traditional startup – media blitzes, wild founders, and wacky ideas about social… Read More

    With McD’s Using Apple Pay, PayPal Scoops Up Burger King For Fast Mobile Sales

    A short code for a Whopper, or a tap for a Big Mac? On the heels of McDonald’s working with Apple to let iPhone users buy Big Macs and more using Apple Pay, PayPal — Apple’s burgeoning rival in payments — has inked a deal with McD’s long-time fast-food competitor, Burger King, to power a mobile payment service at its chain of restaurants, by way of a new Burger… Read More

  • The real life Burger King Windows 7 Whopper is a disgusting joke to humanity

    OMG. When I asked our Japanese readers to send in a pic of the Burger King Windows 7 burger, I was half hoping that it really didn’t exist. But nope, here it is. You probably shouldn’t look at this before breakfast, btw. Read More

  • The Windows 7 Burger King Whopper is gross

    Look at that monster burger. It’s five inches tall and of course is made with seven beef patties in honor of Windows 7. What’s the message here? Eat this burger to feel as slow and bloated as Windows? I don’t get it. I also hope that none of our Japanese readers actually buys the ¥777 ($8.50) burger. But if someone out there does, send us a pic. I would love to see how… Read More

  • Linux loves netbooks

    Microsoft won the war over home PC market share a long time ago with their Windows OS. Apple has of course made strides, but despite its popularity, Microsoft retains its stranglehold. However, with the ongoing interest in netbooks, an opportunity for Linux has opened. Read More

  • Grease thief thieves grease, cops cop fop

    Why can’t anyone take a dignified mugshot anymore? This man, David Richardson, was arrested for trying to steal used cooking grease from a Burger King. He was to use the grease for his biofuel Wacky Races car. While I agree he should have been arrested for even going to a Burger King—I’m a Howard Dean-loving, latte-drinking, New York liberal*—he should have known better. Read More

It’s lined up several partners so that, wherever you go, you’ll run into Master Chief one way or another. So far, Microsoft has enlisted the following companies to help make Halo 3 the system seller that it wants it to be. •Burger King: Terrifingly… Read More

  • Burger King Games Match Gears Of War Sales

    Remember when I said it wouldn’t be a big surprise if those Burger King games for the Xbox 360 sold like crazy? Well, it happened. The games have been out for a little less than a month, but they’ve already hit the 2 million mark, meaning they’ve hit Gears of War status. Sure they’re cheap and there’s three of them, but c’mon, 2 million copies? I… Read More
