Watching the Democratic Presidential Debate In Virtual Reality Sucked Watching the Democratic Presidential Debate In Virtual Reality Sucked

​Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard Really Really Really Like Christmas ​Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard Really Really Really Like Christmas

What War on Christmas? If you live in Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard's home, it's the best holiday of the year (to buy Samsung).

Samsung Introduces You to the Perfect Husband/Domestic Servant Samsung Introduces You to the Perfect Husband/Domestic Servant

An ad for Samsung’s wide world of evolved televisions featuring a dimwitted couch-bound husband transformed into a domestic servant marionette has drawn cries (mostly from MRAs on Reddit, but also now from Fox News) of sexism. Probably a fair critique, although Adweek’s David Gianatasio doesn’t think the outrage is …

Well, it's about to get even worse for some of you, because there's a growing trend among companies of encouraging their employees to compete in "fun"…

Anyway, you know what would be awesome? A cheap, colorful, hypertrendy H&M phone! It might break in six weeks but you could just go…

Smart Phones, Foolish Women Smart Phones, Foolish Women

A new survey commissioned by electronics-giant Samsung proves what we've suspected all along: Cell phones are making women stupid! (Yes, yes, they make men stupid too, but this was a study about women so work with us!) In addition to promoting obnoxious, inane, usually-pointless conversations in public places like…
