Google teams up with Coca-Cola for a festive Android treat

Adding to the magical wonder of Coke's 'Snow Globe Santa' Christmas commercial, Google's AdMob team has collaborated with the One True Soda Master to create a truly festive Android experience: a snow globe live wallpaper (QR code after the break). The live wallpaper -- which basically turns your Android phone into a very cute snow globe -- will be promoted via the AdMob network, which many...

Holy unspeakable awesomeness, Batman! It's Robinisms for Android!

There are a few things that would make every day that much more awesome. For some, it might be a Peter Griffin-style soundtrack following you around... or perhaps a personal sidekick who could chime in with memorable catchphrases like Burt Ward used to do on the classic Batman series. Yes, Robin was quite the wordsmith, slinging gems like "Holy atomic pile, Batman!" If you've got an Android...

Ok, now Google is just screwing with us...

A few days back, I came across some vendor-specific files on the public Git repositories for Google Chrome OS. Labeled for Acer, Dell, and HP, the files likely hinted at the fact that the big three OEMs were at the stage where they needed driver support for their Chrome OS hardware. Yesterday, however, those files disappeared from the repo, and they're still missing today. They've been...

Clubbing baby seals is pretty much universally evil ... but what happens when the seals club back?! That's what you get to find out in a game called Clubby the Seal, where you play the titular vicious arctic creature as he goes around beating the heck out of humans and monsters. It's gory, sure, but that's what makes it fun! This adorable seal has some vicious moves, including jump attacks...

8 reasons to love furries, and more, on Linkbait Generator

I'm going to file this one under "social commentary", actually. Linkbait Generator is a pretty interesting tool I found over at the always-interesting MakeUseOf. It does one thing, and does it quite well: generate titles for blog posts that will probably get clicks. For some reason, people seem to be obsessed with lists. If you go to Digg's "Popular" page, you are sure to find at least one...

Favrd, a beloved Twitter favorites tracker, shuts down

Favrd, a site created in 2008 by Dean Allen to track the funniest posts on Twitter, has shut down today. More than just a pointer in the direction of Twitter's most-favorited fart jokes, Favrd was the center of a vibrant community of wisecrackers. Its passing has been mourned in tweets and blogs by web luminaries including Jeffrey Zeldman. Why did Dean decide to shut down Favrd? Well, it seems...

Sumotori Dreams - sumo Time Waster with added WTF

Perusing Videogum today, I came across one of the most hilarious games I've ever seen. It's called Sumotori Dreams, and, although I think it's supposed to be a sumo wrestling game, it's more like a falling-down-and-rolling-on-the-floor simulator. You can download and play the game, which weighs in at a surprisingly un-sumo-like file size of 96k, but it's just as funny to watch demo videos of the...

Autocomplete Me is a gallery of Google users' bizarre searches

Google's autocomplete feature for searches can be pretty useful when you're looking for a common search term. Hey, neat! You don't have to type the whole thing! Sometimes, though, Google's suggestions take a turn for the hilarious or just plain weird. A site called Autocomplete Me collects some of the strangest ones for your amusement. Admittedly, some of these might be offensive, so viewer...

Halloween costumes from the Internet: happy Hallo-meme!

While it's still not possible to download a Halloween costume, stepping away from the computer for a few hours to trick or treat or go to a costume party doesn't mean you have to leave the Internet behind. In fact, Know Your Meme has come up with a guide to dressing up as your favorite online meme. They have instructions for everything from Keyboard Cat to the Flying Spaghetti Monster to that...

Translation Party achieves hilarious results using Google Translate - Time Waster

Translation Party is a site that automates the old trick of running a sentence through machine translation until it's humorously unintelligible. Instead of manually copy-pasting into Babelfish or Google Translate, you can just put in a phrase once, hit enter, and watch as Translation Party passes it back and forth between English and Japanese, getting further from your original meaning every...

IE6ify: a bookmarklet that breaks the web

There's a lot of rage directed at Internet Explorer 6 these days, including several very serious sites detailing the ways it's holding the web back and making designers' lives miserable. Sometimes rage isn't the best approach, though. Sometimes you need to have a sense of humor – or, if you're a designer who has to support IE6, laugh to keep from crying. That's where the IE6ify bookmarklet...

DrunkTwt: Tweeting while intoxicated

"Don't drink and tweet" is probably some of the best Twitter advice I can give you. But if you must post to Twitter while intoxicated, at least try to do it from DrunkTwt. DrunkTwt posts your intoxicated Twitter ramblings anonymously, using an enormous text field that you don't have to be at all sober to click on. Once your update is entered, it'll show up in DrunkTwt's Twitter stream, which you...

Broken Picture Telephone - Time Waster

Remember that kids' game, Telephone? You tell something to someone, who tells it to someone else, and so on. The message gets repeated incorrectly, and the person at the end of the line hears something completely different from the original message. Well, Broken Picture Telephone is like that, but online and with pictures. Words and drawings alternate, which adds even more possibility for error...
