CEOh-Snap! Ballmer Publicly Ridicules Microsoft Employee for Using iPhone

As Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer was taking the stage for a private company meeting at Seattle's Safeco Field, he saw an employee about to snap his picture with... an iPhone. So, Ballmer decided to snap instead. TechFlash (via Engadget) reports he grabbed the iPhone from the hapless employee, began making "funny comments", put the iPhone on the floor and pretended to stamp on it, and then continued on, only to remind the employee he hadn't forgotten about him later.

Monday Fun Video: Aqua iPhone or Human Farce?

Either an iPhone 3GS was dropped in a pool and kept on recording, or as Richard Lai demonstrates in this second video [NSFW-L] someone was smart enough to cover it in plastic wrap first.

You can decide for yourselves, but we're not letting our iPhone's anywhere near water without full deep sea gear and a mini sub...

[Thanks everyone who sent this in!]

Gang Buys own Music on iTunes with Stolen Credit Cards

Gizmodo made our Friday just a little more bizarrely amusing with a story about a British gang whose DJ made some music, got it up on iTunes (and Amazon) with a 40% commission, and then used stolen credit cards to buy it -- making them look popular, and $300,000 "richer" at the same time. Strangest part?

the British police won't know why they did it until they ask them?

Us neither then.

Daring Satire: Excerpts From the Diary of an App Store Reviewer

Daring Fireball has posted a bitingly satirical look at Apple's iPhone App Store review process which, like the best of comedy, is firmly rooted in both tragedy and truth. That Apple hasn't posted clear guidelines for developers is frustrating enough. That they apparently haven't imposed them on their own internal staff raises the flabbergast bar to dizzying new heights.

With 35,000+ apps and a billion downloads Apple is well on their way towards building that next great platform. Until they fix the app approval process, however, that building is a house of cards.

Friday Fun Video: TiPb Screaming for Palm Pre to Bring it On!

You're the world champion, but some old-school commentators keep talking like maybe you're yesterday's news. They say you haven't faced any real challengers lately, that you're getting soft. They say that some new device is looking hungry.

But here's the thing: you know you've still got it. You know it and you want to prove it. You want to fight. You want to fight now!

But the challenger just ain't showing up. And worse, they ain't even saying when they will finally show up. Makes you so riled you just want to SCREAM!

Not real, no way, but are these anything like the iPhonechromatic or Unibody models you'd like to see Apple release at some point?

Wednesday Fun Comic: Wolverine Better Get a BlackBerry!

SNIKT! How appropriate that CrackBerry Kevin SMASH! was homage'd straight from the pages of Hulk vs. Wolverine, as it seems from the Evil-Comic above that everyone's favorite Canadian mutant maniac might just be heading his way soon.

Remember: he's the best there is at what he does, even if what he does isn't very nice... to multi-touch smartphones, bub.

(True geeks are free to make their own Storm jokes here).

Thursday Fun Video Part Deux: iPod Theater Edition

So. Funny. Maybe the Audio Book industry was right to be worried, but for the wrong reason. With the iPhone rumored to be getting voice control in 3.0, how long will it be before we get to see our signature device turn up as Sam Jackson in Pulp Fiction... or doing it's own into at Macworld 2007! The comedy potential is limitless, we tell you, limitless.
