  • Sony finally gets it right with the latest PS3 commercial With a title like “Hand Drawn”, I immediately thought this to be another mind melting commercial from Sony for the PS3 console.

  • GeekBrief.TV #268

    A PR agency contacted me and offered to send some products from a gadget company they represent. All of the gadgets are fun USB toys, so I thought it would make a great stocking stuffer show. If you’re going to stuff a stocking with a USB gadget, I think you have to stick some kind of iPod in it. My recomendation this year is the Nano. On this brief, I also talk about Brando’s… Read More

  • Pleo Dinosaur Robot Marches Its Way into My Heart

    Pleo is a new $350 ‘life form’ dinosaur robot created by Ugobe. Unlike all the robot dinosaurs I know (e.g. the WowWee Roboraptor), the Pleo is not remote-controlled. It’s ‘self-aware’. It ‘evolves’. It’s also not very badass. This thing, in a very mass-appealing kind of way, is a puppy. Read More

  • 2 Girls 1 Cup meta videos are some of the funniest things around

    Without a doubt, the most famous video on the Internet this month is the legendary 2 girls 1 cup, something I strongly urge you not to google. What’s amazing, though, isn’t just that it exists or that it’s making the rounds it is, but rather the creation of a whole bevy of “reaction videos” on YouTube. They’re what they sound like: videos of people watching… Read More
