New Nexus 4 Ad Shows the Power of Google Now

YouTube Preview Image

Moments ago, Google released their newest ad, which features the increasingly-popular Nexus 4, though the device itself isn’t really the star. No, the big highlight here is the power of Google Now, our favorite Android feature of the last couple of years.

Google has made it clear that they want you to realize that Google Now can show you the weather for today, tell you about your next meeting, update flight statuses, show places of interest, help you translate languages, and make sure you hit the nearest transit station on time.

Love me some Google Now.

Samsung Posts Extended Four and a Half Minute ‘Next Big Thing’ Super Bowl Commercial

YouTube Preview Image

I don’t know if any of you decided to stream the game yesterday through CBS, but apparently when you stream, you only get to watch four different commercials throughout the entire game. It was the most annoying spectacle of all time having to watch that Coke ad about 150 times.

Anyways, Samsung has gone ahead and posted up an extended version of their already lengthy Super Bowl commercial. This one weighs in at four and a half minutes and is basically the same thing we have seen already, but with more insults exchanged from Paul to Seth.

Thoughts on this ad campaign? Is it worth the millions they spent?

Here is Samsung’s Super Bowl XLVII Commercial With Paul Rudd, Seth Rogen, and LeBron James

YouTube Preview Image

After teasing their Super Bowl XLVII commercial earlier in the week, Samsung has gone ahead and posted up the full 2-minute spot ahead of today’s big game. As expected, it features Paul Rudd and Seth Rogen as the “next big thing,” a slogan Samsung has used for some time to describe its Galaxy line.

The spot is decent. It’s two minutes long, features a cameo by LeBron James, includes a couple of chuckle-worthy moments, and is directed by Jon Favreau.

Samsung Uses Paul Rudd and Seth Rogen to Tease Super Bowl Ad

Samsung released the teaser for their Super Bowl commercial this morning, a spot that stars Paul Rudd and Seth Rogen attempting to dance around using the words “Super Bowl” together. When the final 2-minute spot appears later this week and on Sunday, it will feature the “next big thing,” which means the entire current suite of Galaxy products (Note 2, S3 and Note 10.1). There will also be an extended cut at some point with “never-before-seen” footage.

You know a company is doing well when it can put out a teaser for a 2-minute Super Bowl ad that features two of comedy’s stars.

Remember the pink DROID RAZR M that we told you about yesterday? It’s now available! If you can withstand the 4-block long lines that are likely forming for this limited edition Valentine’s Day-inspired device, then you’ll be pleased to learn that it’ll only cost $50 on contract once you get to the front. Remember that it’s limited, which usually means collector’s item. Must have! Can’t live without! OK, I’ll stop now.

You can see the pink wonder in action below in Big Red’s newest commercial. Of course a woman is holding the phone. Sexist.  (more…)
