Funny or Die has released the trailer for its Steve Jobs biopic parody entitled iSteve. Director Ryan Perez said the film originally started as a trailer, but grew into a 60 minute film. The movie looks at Steve Jobs' life based off his Wikipedia page, according to Perez. iSteve stars Justin Long (the Mac vs PC guy) as Jobs, James Urbaniak as Bill Gates and Jorge Garcia as Steve Wozniak.
iSteve is the third Steve Jobs movie in the works. Jobs, starring Ashton Kutcher and Josh Gadd, was originally slated to be released on April 19, before being pushed back by its distributor Open Road. Sony Pictures is also working on its own biopic based on Walter Isaacson’s best selling biography Steve Jobs.
According to the interwebs (via Cult of Mac), a woman has been tracking her stolen iPhone via pictures that the thief has been taking with her phone.
Katy McCaffrey's iPhone was stolen on board the Disney Wonder cruiseline back in April. When the alleged thief named "Nelson" started using the phone to take pictures, they were uploaded to McCaffrey's Photo Stream. McCaffrey then started a public Facebook page entitled Stolen iPhone Adventures to keep track of Nelson's personal exploits.
Samsung has transformed their Facebook page into an iPhone 4S smear campaign. One image compares the iPhone 4S to two tin cans on a string and other outdated cell phone technology. The "cutting edge" (Samsung Galaxy S II) vs. "old school" (iPhone 4S) ad campaign also pokes fun at the iPhone's screen size, battery problems and Apple not releasing a new iPhone in 2011. Here are some examples of Samsung's recent wall posts making fun of the iPhone 4S.
Take your pick: Carrying a magnifying glass or click to zoom?
Sick of squinting? It's okay, Samsung has a phone for that.
Celebrate your freedom of choice.
Sketchy battery? It's okay, Samsung has a phone for that.
If it looks the same and feels the same - it's probably the same.
iPhone rage has been known to make people do horrible things to their iPhones. Many devices have met a gruesome fate after crossing their owners for the last time.
Next time your person-sized iPhone is running low on juice just switch out the car battery. John Savio and Reko Rivera are working to recoup their $2,000 investment in two wearable iPhone costumes they crafted for Halloween.
The two guyPhones have been entering costume contests for prize money and have already won $1,000. Using flat screen televisions and modified iPhones they are able to output the video signal from their devices on the front screen of the costume.
A few days ago, Gizmodo posted a video of a Saturday Night Live iPhone sketch that never aired. I'm sure you've all seen the latest iPhone campaign where "random" street goers testify in front of a black backdrop about how the iPhone has changed their lives. Saturday Night Live evidently produced a sketch based on this ad campaign, but it never aired as it was cut due to another sketch running long. If you haven't yet seen the sketch, it's kind of humorous.
If you don't find punching cops or methamphetamines funny, you might want to skip it.
Apple executives are probably waking up this morning feeling a bit 'foot in mouth'. During the wee hours of the morning here in the US, a picture surfaced on Gizmodo UK of an AT&T store iPhone display that had to be rebooted. Well, of course we all could have guessed that the displays were running off PCs which might occasionally need a restart. What most wouldn't have guessed is that the PCs behind the iPhone displays were running Microsoft Windows XP.
