Conan O'Brien recently had a little fun on "Conan" trying to envision what one notable director's interpretation of the recently announced "Star Wars: Episode VII" might look like. The director in question? Wes Anderson. I think you can tell where this one is going...
Have you had enough of giving the iPad Mini a hard time?
Conan O'Brien hasn't.In yet another saber slash at Apple's new wunderkind, Conan declares he has discovered yet another new ad for the iPad Mini -- this time launching a whole new range of iPads to satisfy every possible size requirement.
Yes, like the iPad Mini Mega Micro.
Conan has already amused himself by offering that the iPad Mini is just a mega ripoff.
However, he and his writers were surely stimulated by the words of Apple CEO Tim Cook, who recently insisted that there was a large world of difference … Read more
If you buy an iPad Mini, you're just trying to fill the empty void in your sad life.
Please don't point your cudgel in my direction, oh Apple fanboy. For I am merely quoting the words of Conan's parody of the new iPad Mini ad.
Taking the footage whole, O'Brien offered lyrics to the ditty played on the two iPadded pianos.
And what lyrics they are.… Read more
Many people love their iPhones, but how many people can say their iPhones love them?
Chatting it up with Conan on Tuesday night, sci-fi fan favorite Nathan Fillion wasn't shy about expressing his feelings over his new iPhone 5. The professed gadget lover told Conan that his phone is so pretty. It's "tiny and light and smart," Fillion said. "And it loves me, it obviously loves me."
But the bond between Fillion and his phone wasn't always so lovable.
The actor confessed that he once had a "contentious relationship" with Siri. … Read more
Late night talk show suits simply can't get enough of tech these days. You'd think they were desperate for someone to laugh at their jokes online, because no one's watching on TV.
Now Conan is counterpunching with what his team says is exclusive video of their intern who was sent to pick up an exclusive iPhone 5 just for the show's use.
There is Colton wandering … Read more
Many are riveted with glee over the new selection of Kindle Fires.
The glow extended to Jeff Bezos' cheeks as he presented the new devices.
However, some may not know that there is an even cheaper Kindle variant, one which Bezos decided not to mention in his 17-hour presentation.
Fortunately, the kind techies who slave in Conan O'Brien's panic room, saw fit last night to help those for whom even $69 is too much cash.
For they reminded everyone about the Amazon Wendell.
What's lovely about the Amazon Wendell is that it has a revolutionary design, when … Read more
The Kindle Fire apparently does not impress Conan O'Brien.
CoCo went after Amazon's inexpensive tablet on his late-night show, with the help of perhaps the worst Jeff Bezos impression ever. The brief skit features the bizarro Bezos pitching some "simple solutions" for a few of the widely reported complaints about the Kindle Fire.
That oddly placed power switch? Duct tape, naturally. I won't spoil any more--watch the clip below for yourself and let us know in the comments if you think the televised lambasting is deserved.… Read more
Back on August 31, CNET broke the story that an unreleased iPhone went missing in a bar and that Apple was doing its darnedest to track it down, with a little help from the San Francisco police. While the prototype has yet to turn up, Conan O'Brien, who's poked a little fun at Apple in the past, has a put together a mock Apple ad called "Apple wants its lost iPhone 5" in which Apple's heavy-handed, take-no-prisoners style is satirized with lines like, "We will find this person and redefine the world of genital torture."
Wilson begins this episode of The 404 Podcast with a few words of encouragement to our young listeners starting their first day of school today.
Unsurprisingly, Mr. Tang excelled in all his classes and never once printed a cheat sheet on a Coke-bottle wrapper--unfortunately Jeff and I can't say the same for our own salad days. Anyone know how to calculate the area of a triangle?
