Looks like Apple didn’t have to release an iPhone 5 at all

Jimmy Kimmel iPhone 5

Maybe if Apple had spent less time mapping people’s ears for their new Earpods and more time doing marketing research, they would have realized they really didn’t need to update the iPhone 4S at all, they just needed to rename it. via Jimmy Kimmel Live  Read More

S#!T Apple Fanatics Say

Meh. I’ve only said maybe 70-85 of these, tops. Pt1 PT2 Thanks to faithful Macenstein reader Chucky for the tip!  Read More

iPhone 5 promo video – It’s funny because it’s true

This apparently came out last week and 6 million people have already seen it, but I was on vacation, so screw you.  Read More

In case you’re wondering what’s on my iPod right now, it’s Tim Cook

TIM COOK SINGS

Just kidding, I don’t own an iPod. But doesn’t it sound weird to say “What’s on your iPhone?” I think so. So I am going to stick with the phrase “What’s on your iPod?” and hope no one is a dick and tries to correct me. By the way, if you like Tim Cook’s debut single (from the folks behind iTunedSteveJobs), and how can you not?... Read More

Well, there’s ONE Apple lawsuit Google doesn’t have to worry about

Screen Shot 2012-07-17 at 9.27.08 AM

Good news for Google. It looks like Apple will NOT be suing the company for ripping off its easy-to-open packaging. Check out this wonderful compilation of failed Google Nexus 7 unboxing videos, which pretty much redefine the term “First world problems”. When you consider that these people all seem to be reasonably tech-savvy folks, it makes you wonder what injuries... Read More

Wow, this is really well done. “iMan” by Luke Escombe

iMan by Luke Escombe

Every once in awhile some music artist looking for attention puts out an iPhone-related music video, and, let’s be honest, they usually suck. But check out this rare gem by Luke Escombe entitled “iMan”. Not only is the video funny and very well-made, and not only is the chick hot and soapy, but the song is actually quite good. Anyone who has ever suspected their... Read More

Epic Rap Battles of History puts up Gates vs Jobs

Steve Jobs vs Bill Gates

No real explanation needed here, other than Epic Rap Battles of History likes to pit two historical figures up against each other and let users vote on who wins the rap battle. While I find this amusing and well-produced, given that Steve is dead and Gates hasn’t run Microsoft for awhile, this battle feels a little out of place, as this “rivalry” was really more... Read More

Jonathan Ive’s biggest design challenge? Himself.

Jonny Ive with Hair

Reddit user pdmcmahon found this great clip from MacWorld 1999 (yes, not 1985) of a young Jonathan Ive sporting hair and what can only be described as an attempt at a mustache. The recently knighted Ive is largely considered to be a design genius, and as you can see from these shots, his “Jason Statham-esque” reinvention is clearly his best redesign to date.  Read More

Android tells Apple to Suck It

Chinese Droid Store Says Suck it Apple

If there’s one thing that has been missing in the cellular phone wars being waged across the globe, I think we can all agree it’s sodomy. Or, at least it WAS until one enterprising phone store in China decided to let the world know that Apple sucks Droid’s D – – K. There’s a couple things worth noting here, most notably that the Droid apparently suffers... Read More

Having a Cell Phone was ALWAYS cool

Zaqck Morris Saved by the Bell Cell Phone

Wow, this will take you back, assuming you were alive in the 80′s. Witness Zack Morris’ (Mark-Paul Gosselaar) awesome cell phone from Saved by the Bell. It’s a slow news day Friday, so there’s really nothing overly Apple about this post, other than Apple should really hire Gosselaar to be the iPhone’s next spokesperson given how ahead of the cell... Read More
