Samsung Galaxy Tab Has "Porn" Button in Romania

Sometimes translations come up with funny words in another language, and it looks like the same happened with the Samsung Galaxy Tab which was shipped in Romania.


As you can see from the screenshot above, the home button on the Galaxy Tab has "Porn" written under it, well it is not exactly Porn but a shortened form of "Pornire" which means start and was abbreviated as "Porn.".

Wonder if there were no English speaking people in Samsung Romania?

New TellTale Game with the Heavy in Tow?

TellTale games are renowned for their episodic and funny games. By funny I mean can’t-stop-guffawing-jaws-bleedingkind of funny. They have released gems such as the Sam & Max series as well as Strong Bad’s Cool Game for Attractive People. So what happens when they release a cryptic-message filled video that teases at a new game in the making?


As you can see from the image above, it seems that the new game will have Tycho from the Penny Arcade Adventures series, Max from Sam & Max, the Heavy from Team Fortress 2 and Strong Bad from Strong Bad’s Cool Game for Attractive People.

These guys, in order:-





While Tycho, Max and Strong Bad are TellTale Games’ staples, the inclusion of the Heavy from Valve’s team based shooter Team Fortress 2 adds to the general confusion around the gaming world. What could this Really Strange But Probably Hilarious Game be?

Here’s the trailer to the new game:-

Google Search for ‘Vatican’ shows Pedophile Website as First Result. Did 4chan Strike Back?

A simple Google search for ‘Vatican’ displayed a  pedophile website as a search result for quite some time on Saturday morning. The website in question turned up as the first result on Google Search.  Google is still assessing the cause of this mishap, which happened early Saturday.


The website named pedifilo’ is an Italian website and hence the name. However, with the Vatican having its official website of the same name, it is surprising as to how the first result can be different from that. This is clearly a hack carried out by some group.

What is funny is that Google Italy is not even sure if this is an attack or not and goes on to confess this! However, in my opinion, this looks like one of the things 4chan can do. We have seen similar stunts coming from 4chan earlier. With their take on religion, hackers all over the Internet are quite enjoying this momentary show.

The Vatican remains under constant controversy of such matters and this is a serious blow to its reputation.

Ouch! Nokia Mocks Apple over iPhone 4 Signal Issues

You have probably heard by now about the iPhone 4’s infamous death grip. Hold the phone in a particular fashion, and your signal will plummet leading to calls being dropped. When users complained, Steve Jobs’ famously quipped, “Just avoid holding it in that way”.

Earlier today, Nokia jibed at Apple by showing off different ways a Nokia phone can be held. Head over to the official Nokia Conversations blog for Nokia’s brilliant sneer. Here are some selected excerpts:

We’ve been looking around and noticed there are many ways to hold your Nokia device. Whether you’re left-handed or right-handed, there’s no shortage of ways to hold your phone…

The cup
Nokia-The-CupPopular with smaller devices, and typically comfortable for longer phone calls, the cup basically enables you to cup the phone with your whole hand. This might result in much of the phone’s edges being covered and the back of the device sitting snugly in the palm of your hand but don’t be concerned about this, it won’t impact the device’s performance. QWERTY device users will also find this handy for tapping out messages and navigating the phone, as the thumb is typically left free with much of the device’s weight being carried by the palm….

The four edge grip
Nokia-Four-EdgeRegardless of the size of your hands, the Four Edge Grip (FEG, for short) is a universal grip which involves all of your fingers and thumb, each having hold of one edge of the device (the middle and ring fingers actually double up to provide an opposing force to the much stronger thumb). You’ll find a little gap develops between the back of the phone and the palm, which is useful. For something.

We’ve found any of the four grips mentioned above to be both comfortable and as you can see, offer no signal degradation whatsoever. This isn’t a feature you’ll only find on high-end Nokia devices either. It’s something that’s been a part of pretty much every Nokia device ever made (perhaps with the exception of that teardrop 3G one, which was a bit ridiculous).

The key function on any Nokia device is its ability to make phone calls. After all, that’s why we know them universally as mobile phones (or smart phones, feature phones or mobile computers though the same grip styles work for those, too). One of the main things we’ve found about the 1 billion plus Nokia devices that are in use today is that when making a phone call, people generally tend to hold their phone like a…. well, like a phone. Providing a wide range of methods and grips for people to hold their phones, without interfering with the antennae, has been an essential feature of every device Nokia has built.

Of course, feel free to ignore all of the above because realistically, you’re free to hold your Nokia device any way you like. And you won’t suffer any signal loss. Cool, huh?

It’s always amusing to see companies mocking competitors, especially when done right. Motorola parodied the iPhone to hilarious effect in their iDoes ad-campaign. Opera created comic gold with their parody of Google Chrome. Nokia’s attempt is another brilliant example of competitors having some harmless fun at each other’s expense. Of course, the fact that Nokia and Apple are currently engaged in bitter lawsuits against each other does make things a bit more interesting.

BP Spills Coffee and Makes You Responsible For Your Own Spills [Humor]

We all know how hard it has been for people after British Petroleum or BP as we like to call them have been lagging at their cleanup act or as many of you might want to call sucking up at the oil they spilled, however, there is always a need to take a break from the disaster and have some fun.

Though this is not a funny situation at all, it is definitely OK to take a break and have a few laughs at the irony of all the things happening while you are not friending BP on YouTube.

Here is a really funny parody created on the BP Oil Spill in Gulf of Mexico called BP Spills Coffee, have fun and watch how they are trying to contain the Coffee Spill.

Oh and before you leave, according to BP, you are responsible for your own spills, so please do not leave the pumps unattended at all times.

Ironic BP Oil Spill Sign

Star Wars iPad Briefing Parody

Remember Hitler’s take on everything and anything cropping up on ? Well, if you don’t this link might help. Now, when initially came out there were a lot of jokes about the name Steve Jobs chose for the device, however, there haven’t been much parodies about the device.

But like always, there is always a geeky fun element to any device or software and I want to introduce you to one such parody of iPad.

Adam Buxton, an English comedian has come up with a iPad parody which involves a Star Wars iPad Briefing, Steve Jobs style. The video in itself is funny and mocks Steve Jobs on stage doing an introduction of the iPad.

Interested in watching it? Well just hit the play button in the video below.

By the way, you can read all about Adam’s inspiration in creating this video at this personal blog here. Oh and do share any other parodies you have seen for the iPad through your comments.

Opera’s World Record Speed Test Video Mocks Google Chrome

Remember the uber-cool speed test video created by the Chrome team? If you don’t, check it out (embedded below). Right now!

Google benchmarked their browser against lightning, sound and even potatoes. Unfortunately for Chrome, and fortunately for us, the folks at Opera got inspired by Chrome’s awesome speed tests and decided conduct one of their own.

The Norwegian comedy duo of Odd and Even Johansen were tasked with finding out if Opera was faster than boiling a potato. The result is pure comic gold. Here is the brilliant parody by Opera.

There is nothing subtle about the above video, but its always fun to watch rival companies taking a dig at each other. Google, now its your turn.
