South Park pokes fun at Apple's location tracking controversy [Thursday fun video]

South Park started out season 15 with an episode that makes fun of Apple on multiple levels including the recent negative press they've received around the location tracking bug.

The Episode is called "HUMANCENTiPAD" and is about Kyle being tracked down by Apple to be used in a hilariously disgusting new product that Kyle unknowingly agreed to volunteer for by not reading the terms and conditions of the latest iTunes update that he accepted.

Check out the video after the break! This particular clip is safe for work. To watch the entire NSFW episode, head on over to South Park Studios. (Flash is required to watch video).

News anchor gets co-host to lick iPad as April Fool's joke [Wednesday fun video]

Good April Fool's jokes seem hard to come by these days, but not for this news anchor who convinced his co-host to lick an iPad immediately after she exclaimed "I'm not licking an iPad!"

The host told a story about a breaking new app that lets you taste and smell things on your iPhone or iPad. The new technology was called Pietzo Electrics and although the co-host seemed disgusted by the idea, she was too intrigued to turn it down once the app was placed in front of her.

For some good laughs, check out the video after the break!

Spot the fakery: iPod touch 5 edition

There's fake, there's really fake, then there's fakety fake fake and while no one outside Apple can ever be certain, one look at the almost-certainly-not iPod touch 5 shots above and about all we're left to ask is how many points of fake fakery can you spot?

Angry Birds movie trailer spoof - Sunday fun video

Either you can't get enough Angry Birds or you're ready to kill the franchise just to watch it die. Either way, this movie trailer spoof will make you love or hate one of iPhone and iPad's most popular casual games in a whole new way.

(And it will probably get the creatively bankrupt blockbuster machine in Hollywood actual revving into high gear...)

iPaditis - Saturday fun video

iPaditis is either a new plague about to be unleashed on humanity... or a way for the BBC to poke a little fun at those of us who enjoy our iPads. Check out the video below and let me know what you think!

(And yes, BBC really did a video about iPads that's not iPad compatible. Check out our how to watch Flash video tip for work-arounds.)

[BBC, thanks Kerri!]

Saying no to notifications

I've turned off almost all notifications on my iPhone. No email sound or vibration, no Twitter popups, nothing from Facebook -- even if it worked, nothing from Ping -- if anyone used it, no Game Center trumpets, no nothing. Almost. I do leave on SMS and Phone (because I need working telephony), and Calendar and Alarm still get to alert me (because I need to stay employed). That's it.

But it used to be the opposite.

Confession: I hate my Apple earbuds

I've come to a realization: I hate my Apple earbuds. They're more like a medieval torture contraption for my ears than a comfortable manner in which to listen to music. Apple has Jonathan Ive and some of the most sought after designers in the world on staff, taking chunks of glass and metal and molding them into a devices that aren't just phones or players or tablets but works of art. Yet the standard earbuds that come with these beautiful pieces of art are ungainly, ill-fitting, and just plain annoying to wear for any length of time.

iPad 2 tourist photoshop giveaway

Was Rene out filming something "funny" for TiPb TV, or did he just get caught being a big, dorky iPad tourist? The always awesome @richardlai and @philnickinson clearly think the way I do -- dorky iPad tourist and offer some photoshop evidence to prove it (see after the break).

Which made me wonder -- how many more places could our terrific TiPb nation find a photoshopped Rene? Since a contest is likely the best way to find out, here it is!

iPad 2, Will it blend? [video]

Tired of all the recent iPad 2 coverage? Well the guys over a Blendtec have just released a video for the iPad 2 version of Will it blend?

If you haven’t seen these videos before, they basically involve a guy in a lab coat sticking an expensive item of tech in a blender. This one is hard to watch, especially if your still waiting to get your hands on an iPad 2, it’s such a waste!

This video is based around the iPad 2 Apple keynote, but still has the usual outcome. Check out the video after the break.
