  1. HBO Signed an Exclusive Deal With Amazon Prime That’s So Close to Being Great News

    Now will everyone stop whining about the Prime price increase?

    Piracy runs rampant on shows from premium networks, and no one knows that better than HBO. Game of Thrones continues to break piracy records, and HBO has finally, mercifully made a deal with Amazon to stream HBO content to Amazon Prime members... at least three years after they air on television, because patience is the Internet's strong suit.

  4. Gary Busey Stars In This Amazon Fire TV Ad And It Actually Makes Sense

    A bit derivative of Anchorman, sure, but it has a real narrative!

    Usually when I see Gary Busey on camera, I react similarly to how I might if my late grandpa had ever wandered into a commercial set -- so a lot of "Oh no, he must be so confused, let's get him back in his chair at home!" But this Amazon Fire TV spot leans into Busey's penchant for acting a bit nutty, and the end result is just delightful.

  5. It’s a bird! It’s a Video Game! No, It’s the Amazon Fire TV Set-Top Box, Watch out, Apple

    Shots fired.

    Amazon got into the set-top box game today with a competitor for Roku and and Apple TV in the form of Amazon Fire. They're at a disadvantage with being comparatively late in the game, but Amazon is aiming to build on the shortcomings of those other offerings with its new box, and they're shipping today.

  8. Vagina Toaster Gives New Meaning To Breakfast In Bed

    Quit playing with your food.

    Normally when you see a vaguely vaginal pattern on burnt toast it says more about whatever issues you're repressing than how your toast was made. But Burnt Impressions, a novelty toaster company (people have too much time on their hands) from Vermont, has forever changed the Rorschach Test that can be breakfast with their Vagina Toaster.

  9. Amazon and Other Online Retailers Ruin Christmas with Late Packages, but There May Be an Upside

    Turn that Amazon logo upside down.

  10. Amazon Is Cracking Down On Monster Porn, And We Won’t Stand For It

    i'll just leave this here

    One of the great things about self-publishing it that it allows authors to get their works out to the masses without the hassle of going through publishers who might not understand the, er, niche appeal of what they write.

And hey, I may not agree with the Bigfoot porn you read, but I'll defend to the death your right to read it. The same is not true of Amazon, which has been yanking "cryptozoological erotica” from their digital shelves. For shame, Amazon. For shame.
