iPhone 4 FaceTime Parody

What if the topic of that FaceTime phone call wasn’t something about a newborn baby or a bad haircut that actually looks cute?  FaceTime calls could also be used for the bad moments in life. Check out the parody video that Jeremy Hyler created past the break.

By the way. Jeremy Hyler is coming out with his own web series called Film School which premiers this weekend here on Pixelated Geek. Stay tuned.

Unaired pilot for the US version of IT Crowd has surfaced

Unaired pilot for the US version of IT Crowd has surfaced

I remember when a friend of mine (I think it was Andrew) told me about the I.T. Crowd.  The hilarious and geeky sitcom from the UK.  If you don’t know what it is, you’ve been missing out. Here is a quick except about the I.T. Crowd from Wiki:

“Set in the London offices of the fictional corporation Reynholm Industries, the show revolves around the three staff members of its IT (information technology) department, comprising two geeky technicians, a genius named Moss (Ayoade) and the workshy Roy (O’Dowd), headed by Jen (Parkinson), the department’s ‘relationship manager’ who knows nothing about IT.”

The show is genius and is already on season 4. So, rewind time before the writers strike here in America and on NBC’s website was a small webpage about a US version.  It was set to air during the fall but never did.  Now finally, the unaired pilot has surfaced on YouTube.  Check out all three parts past the break.

If you’re already a fan of the original UK version of the I.T. Crowd, it may seem a bit weird. Mainly because they use the same dialoge and jokes from the original UK pilot.

Apple iPhone Commercial Parody – 3G using iOS4

Times are tough right now for Apple.  With the constant complaints of the new iPhone 4 reception problems, the mass deleting of complaints on the Apple support forums, and the use of duct tape to fix said iPhone 4 reception problems, it has been a rough time to keep that Apple name as glossy, reflective, and shiny as possible.

Past the break, you’ll see one iPhone 3G’s version of the classic iPhone commercial.  What’s so funny about the video? It’s the fact that the 3G iPhone is using iOS4 and is very sluggish. See what I mean past the break.

Past the break you can see one of the responses to the creator of Digg, Kevin Rose. Be sure to watch the whole video.

Something to brighten up your Monday: The Oatmeal

Something to brighten up your Monday: The Oatmeal

We all know Mondays are a drag. You haul your ass into work, even if that’s only across the living room into your home-office, fire up your email client and get hit with a deluge of crap – most of it demanding to have something done immediately, or you’re fired. You’re knackered from a weekend of ‘relaxation,’ which in laymen’s terms means busting your gut trying to fix something for someone in your family because, let’s be honest, if you’re reading this you’re more than likely ‘the computer guy’. Sound familiar?

Well fear not dear readers, I’ve got something that’ll bring a little bit of levity to your day, in that dark, irritable humour that fits perfectly with the worst day of the week, and it’s simply called The Oatmeal. It’s a site that most geeks will associate with and displays comics, quizzes and general random funnies from the eccentric mind of Matthew Inman. My personal favourite is the very telling story of the humble, or horrible depending on how you looks at them, printer. Here’s a small snippet:

There are many other hilarious comics including ‘What your email address says about your computer skills’ and of course the ‘What it’s like to own and Apple product‘ to name but a few, so head on over to The Oatmeal and get some laughs before Monday turns you sour for the rest of the week.

If Games Had a Super Easy Mode

Most retro game developers were cold-hearted. ‘Is this too hard?’ probably never crossed their minds.

"I'm sure three lives will be enough"

What if a few of them decided to make things a ‘bit’ easier with a super-easy mode? College Humor has came up with a answer to this impossible scenario. Check out the video past the break.
