Nothing like a little Pete Rock to help start your weekend.

Yeah so, Super Bowl XLIX commercials are already starting to pop up well before Sunday’s game. One of the first stars Kim Kardashian as a spokesperson for T-Mobile and their new data rollover plan, called Data Stash. It’s…well…filled with selfies and body suits and selfies and expensive things and talk about saving data and…selfies. I hate selfies so much.
Make it all stop.
Google posted four new Android commercials today that showcase their new slogan of “Be together. Not the same.” The commercials are similar to the set we saw on Android 5.0 launch day, featuring Androidified characters, all of which are using a variety of Android devices.
One commercial stars Android Wear and watches, another the Nexus 9 and tablets, and another focuses on cameras. We are even treated to a part 2 of the road trip commercial that was previously released.
I know we are an Android fan site and are supposed to love all things Android, but these commercials are brilliant. (more…)
Android L, which we believe will be called Lollipop, will likely arrive on Wednesday along with a massive marketing campaign to help promote the platform. From what we can tell, that marketing campaign will feature Androidified people of all types, coupled with the slogan “be together. not the same.” Clearly, Google wants the world to know that everyone can use Android, not just nerds or elitists or hipsters or the rich or poor. It’s a platform with devices for everyone.
Ads for this new campaign began surfacing tonight, with a number of reddit users finding the individual video files and posting them for the world to see. We have included all three that are currently known below.

Last night, during our recording of the DL Show episode 68, Samsung unleashed six new ads, which of course, were centered around Apple’s recent announcements. The ads aren’t all great, but the first two below are actually silly enough to watch, just to see Samsung poke at Apple for their failed live stream of the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus event and remind them that large phones have been around for two years.
The commercials all star faux Apple Geniuses that are borderline hipster. They encounter issues throughout with their Apple products, issues that they wouldn’t have if they were using a Galaxy Note 4. At least that’s the theme here.
I think the best part about these ads, is seeing the Apple apologist media tell the world how terrible they are, even if they are spot on. (more…)
