Obvious cheating. You don’t even have to count the fingers on display to know that something just isn’t right about this.

The Chris Evans iPad case

“Chris Evan’s career has been depicted in four life stages representing his stints on TV and Radio for The One Show, Big Breakfast and BBC Radio 2″ No idea where to begin in terms of critiquing the product or the placement of that apostrophe in the quote. Doesn’t even look like him, they’ve just used [...]

The Always Amazing LG XNote

Wouldn’t say it’s actually amazing, but it’s a pretty competent one-handed balance especially when you take into account the gravitational issues created by those shoes. If we had to complain it’d be about the lack of calf muscles. They don’t exercise them enough out there. Start making them ride bicycles to the photoshoots, LG. More [...]

Guess the FUNCTION of the THING

We’re going to give this one away. It’s a washing machine. A Korean washing machine. The chance of anything coming out of this in its original size, shape or colour is pretty remote. There needs to be a washing machine for men. With just one big ON/OFF switch, or preferably a lever. And a lovely [...]

Don’t just have a wedding, have a Samsung wedding

“Quickly, vacuum her dress, she’s got to be at the registry office in… TEN MINUTES AGO!” And that oven’s got a face. It looks like it might be about to eat the vacuums. That would be a great wedding fight. Best photograph of 2011 so far.

One’s smart, one’s amazing

Both are also pretty tidy. Jessica looks after my reading glasses, while Alison holds the prescription sunglasses. They’re better than glasses cases and have been trained to place them on my nose when I make the appropriate grunting sound.

SEOUL, KOREA –PRESS NEWS WIRE– NEW WASHING MACHINE DEEMED SIMPLE AND STRAIGHTFORWARD ENOUGH FOR EVEN MEN TO USE The joke was actually going to be something about putting thumbs up the receptionist’s bottom, but that might’ve been a bit much.

Samsung automates the waving process

Don’t wear out your hand muscles waving manually… …use the Samsung Wave II. Simply hold it up and you’re waving. The Queen’s ordered one and an additional third-party battery to boost waving times.

LG Optimus 3D threesome

Not sure why they sent this picture out. Surely there were other photos in the set where everyone didn’t have a weird expression going on? Also, no shoes. They could’ve at least put a photo of the one in the middle’s shoes on the screen. Nice attempt at illustrating 3D depth in a 2D image, [...]
