George Clooney Kicks It With a Galaxy Nexus in New Commercial

What, you didn’t have your celebrity Android fix for the day? Well, here you go. George Clooney was in Malibu this week filming a smartphone commercial and just so happened to have a Galaxy Nexus on him. We are going to go ahead and assume it wasn’t a commercial for the G-Nex since they blacked out the Samsung logo on it, but thought we’d share anyway. I wonder if it’s running 4.0.4? AOKP maybe? LTE or unlocked? How does George roll?

Now, back to the NBA Playoffs or a beer or kimchi tacos or your son’s baseball game or whatever it was you were doing for the evening.  (more…)

Details Mag Recommends HTC Thunderbolt, Atrix 4G and Nexus S

In the March edition of Details, they recommended a bunch of phones that don’t begin with an “I” and we couldn’t help but smile at all of the Android options.  Of course, we loved seeing the Thunderbolt, but also took notice that they left out Skype and 8-device hotspot features which we know have been fueling the delay controversy lately.  Oh, and another 2-page ad showed up directly after.  Just wanted to share…

More XOOM and Thunderbolt Ads Pop Up in Esquire, Popular Science and Popular Mechanics

March’s magazines started showing up on doorsteps today and inside, our readers are finding all sorts of Thunderbolt and XOOM ads.  We found some earlier in the day from the SI Swimsuit Issue, but now we have more from Esquire, Popular Mechanics and Popular Science.  I’m sure you can find more in Rolling Stone and a variety of other publications, so feel free to post those in the comments should you run into them.  No dates given on any of them.

Announcement, please.  I’d really like for next Thursday to be epic.   (more…)

Thunderbolt and Motorola XOOM Ads Enjoy Time in Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue

One of the difficult parts of this job is doing things like heading to the local market to pick up the brand new Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue and fondle it flip through it while looking for ads for the latest pieces of technology.  And sure enough, we were able to accomplish this difficult task which turned out to be a great success!  Like it wasn’t going to be anyway…

The Motorola XOOM found itself in a full page ad which we deemed far too removed from Irina Shayk, but the Thunderbolt sure opened up in a 2-page spread somewhere near Peter Island and Brooklyn Decker’s section.  Neither ad includes a release date, but we’re still holding out for the 24th.  And now you have an excuse to go buy this issue.  (Like you needed one?)

Tbolt spot after the break.   (more…)

Android Collectible Stars in Big Bang Theory

If anyone watched the Big Bang Theory tonight, you probably saw our little green friend appear in an extended video chatting scene, planted firmly on Sheldon’s desk as he video chatted with some chick.  I know it’s not a “DROID”, but still fun to see, especially on the day when the mainstream media tried their hardest to make it sound like that other phone’s availability on Verizon mattered.

Cheers Jamie!

Original DROID Stars in Scream 4

This isn’t a complete joke, although we couldn’t help but laugh the entire time we watched it.  We’re talking about the trailer for Scream 4…speechless, right?  They are actually remaking the movie AGAIN, featuring almost the exact same cast of characters that managed to run and scream their way through enough bad reviews to warrant some sort of cult status.  There is one bright spot though, and that would be the star of the film.  At least that’s what we’re calling him…the OG DROID.  At some point in the movie, he makes an appearance although it looks like it might be right before someone dies.  Sad.   (more…)
