  1. Samsung’s Smart TV Now Puts Pepsi Ads in People’s Personal Videos

    Would you say these Pepsi ads are popping up... out of the blue?

    Call it off, everyone. We found a way in which we don't want TV to be more like the Internet. Shut it down.

  3. Samsung Proves Its Robot Butts Are Better Than Apple’s in Hilarious Phone Bend Test Demonstration

    Samsung has phone bending down. They're well on their way to avatar status.

    If you want to test whether or not being sat on by puny, inferior human butts will bend today's giant smartphones, you're going to need a robot butt. Apple and Samsung both have custom robutts that tirelessly, mercilessly test countless smartphones by getting all butt-dial on them, and it looks like Samsung has the better butt.

  4. Samsung’s “It Doesn’t Take a Genius” Ads Mocking Apple’s Announcements Sure Didn’t Take Long

    I only wish these weren't so accurate.

    In the world of computers, Apple may still be able to play the scrappy underdog card, but in the mobile arena, they're the ones attracting the attack ads from those who would challenge their dominance. Samsung wasted no time throwing together this "It Doesn't Take a Genius" ad series mocking all the fairly mockable moments from Apple's iPhone 6/Apple Watch announcement stream on Tuesday. (Full series of ads after the jump.)

  5. Samsung Turns the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge Into an Ad, Makes Us Cringe

    Seriously?

    Look, people have their own opinions on the ALS ice bucket challenge. I personally think it's doing a great job at bringing attention to a good cause and can't fault it or anyone who participates, and it's also entertaining, which only helps spread the word. I've heard complaints that people focus more on the ice bucket aspect than they do on remembering what it's for, but this Samsung video is the first time I've actually felt like I was seeing an ad instead of a charity effort.

  6. Things We Saw Today: Who Needs Hogsmeade, Oreo May Have A Butterbeer Flavor

    If these taste remotely like rootbeer I'm calling shenanigans.

    Someone alerted us to these cookies via e-mail, but there's no confirmation yet from Nabisco if this package is real or just photoshopped by someone with a Mirror of Erised.

  7. Yes, Apple Had an Employee Named Sam Sung, Of Course He’s Auctioning His Uniform for Charity

    Samsung's double-agent codename game needs work.

    How was this guy not the first person Apple questioned when they started their patent war with Samsung? Maybe he's the reason they're calling it off, because he forged a unity between the two sides as he worked together with Apple in harmony at the Apple store. Sam Sung has moved on to bigger and better screens things, so he's auctioning off his Apple business card and uniform for charity.

  8. Mockingjay: Part 1 Trailer to Debut on 8.4 Inch Screen at SDCC as Part of Bizarre Partnership With Samsung

    Unity. Prosperity. SDCC.

    The Hunger Games won't have a panel at SDCC this year, but fans in attendance can still get a peek at Mockingjay: Part 1. The trailer will be introduced in San Diego by as-yet-unnamed cast members, but it won't be screened in Hall H. Instead, the new look at one of this year's most anticipated releases will be revealed on the 8.4 inch screen of a Galaxy Tab S as part of a collaboration between Samsung and Lionsgate. President Snow would probably be proud.

  9. Good Guy Samsung Sent Me a New Battery After Giving Me a Crappy One at SXSW

    Hey! A company did a nice thing!

    This isn't sponsored content or an ad. I'm just excited, surprised, and grateful that it happened. After giving me a dud of a battery at SXSW, Samsung mailed me a new one with some extras to make up for it. I complain online when companies screw me, so it's only fair I call one out when they do something great like this.

  10. Samsung Doubles Down on Apple Attack Ads by Mocking the iPad Air “Pencil Commercial”

    I can't wait for the pencil industry's responding attack!

    Samsung released a second attack ad on Apple today, this time mocking their memorable "Pencil Commercial" for the iPad Air. Like the Note 3 vs. iPhone 5S commercial we saw earlier, this one is all about size. This time they're comparing the thinness of the Galaxy Tab Pro 10.1 to the iPad Air. Samsung seems really, Really focused on size lately.

  11. Samsung Calls Out Apple and Its Tiny Screens in Latest Ad Comparing the Note 3 to the iPhone 5S

    The 5S looks almost adorable next to the Note 3. Like a cute lil' baby phone.

    Often when companies try to crap on their competition it can seem childish and petty, but I think Samsung is pretty good at it--particularly when they're crapping on Apple like in this new ad comparing the Galaxy Note 3 to the iPhone 5S. It even has real basketballman LeBron James.

    It's normal to cry when you send back a review unit of a phone, right?

    Three weeks ago Samsung sent me a review unit of their giant Galaxy Note 3 "phablet" (Please. Someone come up with a better word.) Today I have to send it back, and it's breaking my heart. The Note 3 is a wonderful device. Here's why.

  13. Samsung Did Not Pay Apple $1.05 Billion in Coins, Internet. Come on

    This one? Again? Really?

    An old Internet myth seems to be rearing it's made-up head, and people are once again sharing the story of how Samsung paid off a $1.05 billion court-ordered settlement with Apple in 30 truckloads of nickels. Except... they obviously didn't. Besides this being an old myth, let's look at why it's so ridiculous. Simply put - sheer volume.

  14. Samsung Officially Unveils Galaxy Round Curved Phone

    Finally, the people get what they want. You guys wanted a slightly curved screen, right?

This will cause the phone to do amazing things like wake up and show your notifications and battery life. Never before has it been so simple. Well, unless you count pressing a button as simple, but don't be absurd.

  15. Wait, Who the Heck Is Jason Bradbury? A Primer For Our Non-UK Readers

    Before you are saying that I am not a tech expert, let me explain you a thing.

    By now you've heard the news about the Samsung Galaxy Gear smartwatch. Maybe you've even seen the video event announcing the new product. But who was that angry-Moby-looking guy in the video? He's kind of a big deal in the U.K., but a lot of the U.S. coverage of the Samsung event didn't seem to know who he was. Here's a primer on Jason Bradbury.

  16. Samsung Announces Galaxy Gear Smartwatch, Tries to Convince Us Smartwatches are Cool

    The Doctor had an easier time convincing River his fez was cool.

    Samsung just wrapped up their big event today announcing the Samsung Galaxy Note III, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 2014 Edition, and most notably the Samsung Galaxy Gear smartwatch. It looks like a very impressive smartwatch, but I'm still not convinced smartwatches are impressive.

  18. Samsung Roboray Robot Maps Its Environment in 3D, Walks Just Like a Human [Video]

    We're one step closer to C3P0 -- or the Terminator, depending on who you ask.

    Roboray, the latest humanoid robot from Samsung, has a new trick up its sleeve. Thanks to new visual recognition software developed at the University of Bristol, the automaton can build real-time, 3D visual maps of its environment. The new software lets Roboray look at its surroundings and create a map of them as it moves -- or as things move around it -- and retain that information to remember where it has been before, which brings us one step closer to having autonomous robots walking around. If you're a fan of that idea, it's great news! If you're not, commence being terrified...now.

  20. Samsung Assumes You’ll Want This Add-On Game Controller for the Galaxy S4

    Hey, remember buttons? They're back! As you may have heard, the Samsung Galaxy S4 was unveiled yesterday, and you're either rolling your eyes or anxiously awaiting the chance to purchase one, because hey, new smartphone. But the Korean multinational hopes to snag a few more customers by appealing to the video game demographic with a bonus prototype they've showed off along with the S4 itself. It's a cradle/game controller that clamps onto the phone, connects wirelessly -- even though it's right there touching it -- and looks more than a little an Xbox 360 controller. All you need are some triple-A batteries.
