The Best & Worst April Fools Pranks of 2016

Ah, April Fools’ Day…

A day where everyone is pregnant or engaged and saran wrap is terrifying

Corporations love to use this faux holiday as an excuse to gain some free publicity, but some do it better than others.

So who killed it this year and who crashed and burned? Check out my thoughts below:

Worst: McDonalds

Fast food giant McDonalds released the MmmBox for April Fools’ Day – a monthly subscription service that pairs your favorite menu items to your lifestyle.

Their recent box, the McRib box, includes a McRib, a moustache comb, a plaid napkin, and irony.

Best: Analog Watch Co.

This little-known watch company scored some free advertising when they announced the preposterous Lunar Watch: the world’s first timepiece made of a solid piece of genuine moon rock.

The Lunar Watch may be one huge lie, but let’s be honest, this earthy (or should I say moony) concept is absolutely stunning. Let’s make this happen, people!

Worst: Google

Google decided to have a little fun with its Gmail application this April Fools’ Day, adding a “Mic Drop” option that allowed users to completely end an email thread with a GIF of a yellow Minion dropping a microphone. Sounds cute and innocent, right? Wrong, so wrong.

There were two major issues with this prank:

  1. Minion memes are awful and should be banned from the internet
  2. Google put the “Mic Drop” option right next to the “Send” button

People ended up accidentally clicking the “Mic Drop” option rather than “Send” button, and some even reported that clicking “Send” would still prompt the minion to appear. Google pulled the plug on this prank relatively early due to the thousands upon thousands of angry people who flooded their customer services lines.

Looks like the joke was on Google this year.

Best: Sony

Sony unveiled their latest product on April 1: The Proton Pack.

Ok… this product clearly isn’t fooling anyone who has seen Ghostbusters (or has a brain for that matter), but the craftsmanship is definitely to be admired, and 80s movies references will never, ever fail.

Worst: WaterAid

WaterAid is an international organization that strives to provide access to safe water and sanitation to people world wide.

This April Fools’ Day, however, they took their ‘sanitation’ stance a little too far:

The video does end on a very somber and realistic note, but still… there are no words. none.

Best: PornHub

In what is perhaps the best April Fools’ Day prank of all this year, PornHub decided to rebrand themselves as… wait for it…CornHub. 

This has to be the corniest joke ever, yet it’s oh so perfect.

There are plenty more April Fools jokes that went unmentioned, so leave your favorites (and not so favorites) in the comments!

The Galaxy S7 Edge is an Impractical Waste of Money

If you’ve decided to purchase a new Samsung Galaxy smartphone but can’t decide between the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge, then I have some simple advice for you: buy the normal Galaxy S7.

I own the Galaxy S6 Edge, and to be honest, purchasing that phone was one of the worst financial decisions of my life, and if I owned a DeLorean i’d go back in time and purchase the normal S6 instead.

Now I know that the S6 Edge and S7 Edge are wildly different in terms of power and internal features (the S6 Edge does not offer expandable storable, for instance), but these phones are nearly identical in terms of exterior design, and that design is what ultimately led me to hate the Edge series.

I’ll be damned if I let another Samsung lover go down the road that I did, so before you make any rash decisions, check out my 4 reasons why you should purchase the normal Galaxy S7 over the S7 Edge:

Both phones have nearly identical specifications

When it comes to power and performance, the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge are basically the same phone.

Both phones boast a powerful Snapdragon 820 quad-core CPU and each have 4GB of RAM*. They each also have the same 12-megapixel camera with phase detection, as well as a 5-megapixel front camera. This is a decrease from the S6 variants which had 16-megapixels, but truthfully, high megapixels are essentially meaningless unless you plan on creating cardboard cut-outs.

There is one major technical difference between the two S7 variations, though: the battery.

Since the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge is slightly bigger the normal S7,  Samsung was able to throw in some extra battery space. The Edge has a 3600 mAh battery, while the normal S7 has only a 3000 mAh battery. This means that you’d generally get a longer battery life out of the S7 Edge.

Extended battery life on the S7 Edge sure is good news, but that’s not the only thing you should take into consideration…

The S7 Edge is far more vulnerable

Both the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge are water resistant, which is a great upgrade from the S6 series (oddly enough, Samsung did not make that series water resistant, even though the S5 series was).

Both phones also feature Corning Gorilla Glass 4 on both sides of the device. This damage-resistant material is extremely durable and shock absorbing, but a gigantic downside is that it’s not even remotely shatterproof.

In all fairness, most phones on the market do not boast shatterproof glass, either, but those phones have the luxury of hiding behind a case with relative ease. The Galaxy S7 will do well against drops when properly secured in a case, but the Galaxy S7 Edge has a major disadvantage here due to the fact that, case or not, the phone will always be exposed.

The Edge’s dual-edge display must be completely exposed in order to fully utilize the phone’s touch capabilities, and case makers such as OtterBox and Spigen have yet to develop a product that is able to fully product the exposed portion of the phone from drops. If you really want to make sure that your S7 Edge is 100% protected, then investing in a hefty protection plan is really your only option.

Well, either that or purchase the normal Galaxy S7.

The Edge is a total nuisance

The Edge’s curved screen and dual-edge display is beautiful, no doubt, but it loses its novelty after about a week of use and provides many challenges for the user in the long run.

One of those challenges is video streaming. The display curves over the side of the phone, distorting the image and creating a glare from outside light sources, which, as you could imagine, is extremely frustrating to deal with when watching Netflix or Hulu on your phone. That distortion can also affect the user experience when reading ebooks or articles online, but it’s not as noticeable or annoying as the video distortion.

As far Edge feature utilization is concerned, there really is no utilization.

One of the dual-display’s main features, the color notification beacon, is impossible to see if your phone has a case on it, as that case will generally block the notification light. In addition, the notification bar will be hard to read for most people, as it’s very slim. It’s far more convenient to simply click on your phone and view the lock screen to see what’s new, and truthfully, most people will rely on this method rather than the notification bar, which renders the entire feature essentially useless.

Image credit: Gawker media

The side popup menu is a nifty little addition to the Galaxy S7 Edge, but it’s far too easy to open it by accident while playing games or scrolling through Tasty videos on Facebook. The menu feature can be disabled, but for casual users who don’t dive much into their phone settings, this is a huge annoyance.

$$$$ $$$ $$$$

If you purchase the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge outright, these phones would cost you $694.99  and $794.99, respectively. But let’s be real, most people will not be purchasing the phone through that route.

So here is basically what you need to know: when going through a carrier plan such as AT&T Next or Verizon Edge, the Galaxy S6 Edge will always cost you more per month on your cellular bill.

The question you need to ask yourself, then, is whether or not the Edge is worth that higher price.

…You already know my answer.

Am I being too harsh on the Galaxy S7 Edge? Weigh in below!

* U.S. general specifications. Processor specifications may vary by country and carrier.

Crew Demolishes Wrong Home, Blames Google

Rowlett, Texas resident Lindsay Diaz has had a pretty rough couple of months.

A devastating tornado last December left Diaz and her 8-month old daughter temporarily displaced, their home too damaged to reside in. But while the damage to her home was no doubt devastating, the structure itself was deemed repairable. This news was a godsend to the underinsured Diaz, who could not afford the high premiums that come with demolition and rebuilding.

Diaz’s contractor was ready to submit a building permit to the city to begin the repair process, when suddenly, Diaz received a phone call from a frantic neighbor.

“My neighbor called me. She was hysterical and crying. She said, ‘I hope you’re sitting down. Someone demolished the house by mistake.’ I was so upset, and I was just hoping that it was a bad joke – that someone was messing with me. But I got there, and it was just a slab. They took everything.”

The demolition company responsible for this horrifying blunder, Billy L. Nabors Demolition, has not apologized to Diaz for destroying her home and all the pricey and priceless items within it (including her vintage Coca-Cola collection), nor have they claimed any formal responsibility.

Instead, the company is pointing the blame at an unlikely source: Google.

The demolition crew directed themselves to their job site using Google Maps, verified the house number over the phone upon arriving at the location, and then they demolished the house that existed on that property. The team did everything they were supposed to do step-by-step, so how on earth did Diaz’s home end up getting demolished?

Diaz’s home (7601 Calypso Drive) and the intended demolition target (7601 Cousteau Drive) each exist at the end of the their respective street with only 344 feet separating the two (as seen in the graphic below), so it’s fair to assume that this isn’t the first time visitors looking for house number 7601 have made this mistake. Only difference is, those visitors didn’t show up with wrecking equipment.

Screen Shot 2016-03-25 at 9.08.41 PM

The tornado knocked down street signs in this neighborhood, so services such as Google Maps and Apple Maps became essential for visitors and contractors attempting to reach their destination. But a Google Maps error mistakingly directed anyone looking to find 7601 Cousteau Drive to Diaz’s house instead (as seen in the graphic below).
Screen Shot 2016-03-25 at 8.04.15 PM

Based on all of these factors, the accidental leveling of Diaz’s house by Billy L. Nabors Demolition doesn’t appear to be negligent, and truthfully, it’s understandable why the company would be upset with Google. But as far as legality is concerned, would the demolition company even be able to successfully sue Google for damages?

Here is what Google Map’s terms and conditions has to say about this matter:

When you use Google Maps/Google Earth’s map data, traffic, directions, and other Content, you may find that actual conditions differ from the map results and Content, so exercise your independent judgment and use Google Maps/Google Earth at your own risk. You’re responsible at all times for your conduct and its consequences.

So no, the company will not be able to successfully file a suit against Google…. but that hasn’t stopped people from trying in the past.

In 2010 a woman sued Google for issuing her walking directions that led her onto a highway, where she was subsequently struck by a car. Google Maps walking directions were in Beta stage at that time, and Google did issue warnings about their accuracy, but come on.. it doesn’t take a genius to realize that walking onto a highway is probably a bad idea.

If the demolition company does decide to file a lawsuit against Google, then only one person in this story would suffer: Lindsey Diaz.

“I was hoping for an apology – ‘I’m sorry my company did this, we’ll make it better,’ and instead he’s telling me how the insurance is going to handle it, and telling me that it’s going to be a nasty fight.”

The company wants to protect their reputation, but a lawsuit would only throw Diaz and her family into a legal quagmire, hindering her from getting settled into a new home quickly. Diaz, not the company, is the victim here, and regardless of whether or not the demolition company feels 100% responsible, the fact remains that they did in fact demolish her home.

Lindsey Diaz and her family are owed a debt, and the first payment is simple: an apology.

Billy L. Nabors Demolition, it’s your move.

Finding Marvel’s Ladies in Gaming

As a lot of comic fans are well aware, Marvel’s gaming prowess is surprisingly lacking when compared to the company’s utter domination of the film industry. One might imagine that for each $100 million-plus movie there’d be an accompanying video game for the biggest and best consoles, but that just isn’t how Marvel seems to want to operate. Instead, they seem fine with spreading their influence over other avenues of gaming, online and through mobile devices (with the exception of the LEGO games for consoles, which I’ll leave out of this conversation).

The good thing about this is it’s resulted in Marvel creating a number of titles that focus as much on collecting superheroes (and villains) as on gameplay. This sort of format just adds to online and mobile games and helps them make up ground where they can’t be as objectively mind-blowing as console titles. And with this focus on character collection, an interesting thing has happened: Marvel’s games have become just about the only branch of the company in which female heroes get equal time and attention to male ones.

The primary example is Marvel Heroes 2016, a very popular MMO game online that features an incredible breadth of Marvel characters. As arguably the “biggest” Marvel game out there, this one excels particularly in incorporating characters that have either barely appeared or not appeared at all yet in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. For instance, Emma Frost, Black Cat, Invisible Woman, Kitty Pride, and many others are all in play for gamers to enjoy. There may ultimately still be more male than female characters, but it’s really a nice dose of equality.

BlackWidow_2Other examples of Marvel’s gaming success as well as the specific use of female heroes are evident in the Internet casino business, which actually consists of more games than you might expect. There are a few slot machine games floating around featuring characters like Elektra. But it’s actually some of the Avengers-related games featured at Gala Bingo’s site that stand out the most, thanks to Black Widow’s prominent place alongside the biggest heroes in marvel. The Iron Man 2 game that’s still up so many years after the film’s release gives Scarlett Johansson’s character the prominent place she deserves, having become one of the strongest and most prolific heroes in the MCU.

Last but not least there are numerous Marvel gaming apps available for mobile devices, and they’ve also excelled at making use of female heroes in their own ways. Basically, these games are frequently updated with characters to suit upcoming or newly released Marvel projects, and since the studio has lately done more to prop up female heroes, the games are following suit. As noted by Mashable, Marvel: Contest of Champions and Marvel: Future Fight added Jessica Jones alongside the release of the Netflix series, and both roped in Elektra when she was announced for Daredevil season two as well.

Really, they’re all fun games and all worth trying, particularly if you like a little girl power with your comic entertainment fix!

10 Last Minute Gift Ideas for the Geek in Your Life

If you’ve procrastinated doing your holiday shopping for the geek in your life until now, then I’m afraid I’ve got some bad news for you: your options are pretty slim.

You no longer have the luxury of purchasing presents online if you want them to come in before Christmas, so you’re now forced to face the crowds and lines in the world of retail, where nearly everything by now has been picked over to death.

So, to make your last minute holiday shopping a little less stressful, I’ve spitballed 10 ideas for some geeky gifts that may just be perfect for your loved one! And, to make shopping even easier for you, all of these gifts can be found in nationwide retail stores! Just don’t blame me if they’re out of stock – you’re the one who waited until the last minute!

 

Attack on Titan Zip Up Hoodie

Available at: Hot Topic
Price: $50-56

Help the Attack on Titan fan in your life stay nice and warm this winter with a Scout Regiment hoodie! Hot Topic has quite a few different variations of the hoodie seen to your left, some with winged sleeves, some without. These hoodies may be a little pricey, but they are made of decent material and will stand not only the test of time, but the dreaded washing machine.

The former goth chain also has a variety of other Attack on Titan swag, including wallets, tanks, keychains, and full cosplay outfits.

 

Screen Shot 2015-12-23 at 10.41.23 PMAdult Coloring Books

Available at: Barnes and Noble, Target, Michaels
Price: $4-$15

Adult coloring books are a hot trend lately, and honestly, who doesn’t love to color?! Couple a coloring book with a tall beer or glass of wine, and you’ve got yourself the perfect night in.

I have found that Barnes and Noble has the geekiest selection of coloring books aimed at the kid-at-heart (such as the Sherlock one I have featured here), but Target and Michaels also have a decent array, albeit not as geeky.

Bonus points: get them some amazing colored pencils to go along with it! Or wine. Wine is always good.

Star Wars R2-D2 8-pc. Measuring Cup Set

Available at: Kohls
Price: $14.99 (originally $29.99)

Why not bring a little fun into the kitchen with this absolutely adorable R2-D2 measuring cup set?

It includes a 1/4-cup measuring cup, 1/3-cup measuring cup, 1/2-cup measuring cup, 1-cup measuring cup, 1/4-teaspoon, 1/2-teaspoon, 1-teaspoon and a 1/3-teaspoon

You can rearrange the pieces when the set is not in use and store R2 on your counter, making this set truly a functional piece of fandom.

Funko Pop! Figures

Available at: Hot Topic, Target, Walmart, Barnes and Noble, Game Stop, Best Buy, etc.
Price: $8.99-$25

Funko Pop! figures are cute, geeky, and they’re kind of everywhere.

Even if the geek on your list isn’t a Pop! collector, these figurines are sure to find a special place in your loved one’s home or office. Almost every major fandom has been recreated into chibi form by Funko, and the figurines range from mini to large, the standard size measuring at a height of 3.75 inches.

Honestly, as far as last minute geeky gifts go, this is the easiest one to pick up.

That Video Game They’ve Been Raving About

Available at: Game Stop, Best Buy, Target, Walmart, Sears etc.
Price: $59.99 (average price for new)

I feel like this is the really obvious choice to make around Christmas, but it’s still an effective one if the geek on your list is a gamer. Plus, retailers have a HUGE supply of games this time of year, so you’re pretty much guaranteed to find the latest and greatest ones in stock while you’re out doing your last minute shopping.

If video games aren’t your forte and you need a suggestion about what to get them, the following new releases are your best bet:

  • Star Wars: Battlefront (PS4/Xbox One/PC)
  • Fallout 4 (PS4/Xbox One/PC)
  • Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege (PS4/Xbox One/PC)
  • Call of Duty: Black Ops III (PS4/Ps3/Xbox One/Xbox 360/PC)

Just make sure they don’t already have the game, of course.

Hayao Miyazaki Swag

Available at: Hot Topic
Price: $4 and up

Hot Topic has an excellent selection of clothing, toys, and accessories based on classic Hayao Miyazaki films (such as Spirited Away, My Neighbor Totoro, and Kiki’s Delivery Service). Their clothing is available in both men’s and women’s options, and if you’re shopping for the latter, then I highly suggest checking out some of the absolutely adorable dresses that they have for sale.

Now this is a bit off topic from the theme of this article, but if you really want to impress the Miyazaki fan in your life, then I highly consider purchasing his collected works on Blu-Ray. This collection is exclusive only to Amazon, so unfortunately it wouldn’t arrive until after Christmas, but it would make one hell of a belated present. Just some food for thought.

Star Wars Jewelry from Kay

Available at: Kay Jewelers
Price: $34.99 – $249.99

Every kiss begins with Star Wars? Okay, that may have been lame, but the Star Wars collection at Kay Jewelers definitely isn’t.

Jewelry has historically been the ultimate last minute gift to get for your loved one, but with this new Kay collection, that stereotypical choice will have a delightfully geeky twist. The collection includes earrings, bracelets, bracelet charms, and necklaces.

P.S: I hope my boyfriend is reading this.

 

A Drone

Available at: Best Buy
Price: $39.99 -$1350.00

A flying machine that your loved one can use to take aerial shots of the roof and spy on the neighbors?

Uh, yes please.

Drones provide hours of fun, and many come standard with video cameras capable of capturing the many aerial adventures you will have. The ones with the best cameras and controls are going to cost you a small fortune, but a mid range drone without a camera can easily be rigged with a GoPro (or similar) camera.

Best Buy has a large selection of Drones for the holiday season, and they start for as little as $39.99! But of course if you do just so happen to have the means to purchase your loved one a drone costing over $1000, then please be my secret santa. Oh, and get them that drone… duh.

Fleece Super Hero Suit

Available at: Target
Price: $17.48- $24.99

Winter is officially here! So if your loved one has a thing for super heroes (or super villains), then you might want to consider getting them a fleece suit to keep them warm throughout the harsh winter months.

Target carries a selection of these suits, with styling options including Batman, Superman, Ninja Turtles, Captain America, Darth Vader. Sizes are available for men, women and children.

And want to know the best part? Almost everyone has a Target near them, and almost every Target carries these superhero fleece suits, making them the absolute perfect last minute gift.

Pretty Much Anything Star Wars

Available: Almost everywhere
Price: Depends

When in doubt, go with Star Wars presents.

Nearly every retailer is carrying some sort of Star Wars swag, be it toys, clothing, bedding, or even soup. So if your geek is a Star Wars fan, then I’m sure you’ll be able to find something that they’ll love.

From my own experience, I have found that Target and Kohls have great deals on officially licensed clothing, and their selections extend far past graphic tees. Plus, many of these clothing items even come with collectible tins!

I’m sure there are countless other last minute geeky gifts that I haven’t thought of, so please comment below with your suggestions! Happy hunting, and happy holidays!

‘Borderlands’ Film Adaptation in the Works

Borderlands is getting the cinematic treatment!

Lionsgate is planning to bring the hit first-person shooter game to the big screen, and they’ve recruited Avi and Ari Arad as producers to help bring the project to life. 

Borderlands has a unique story-driven narrative energy and rich multidimensional characters that position it to become a singular motion picture event,” said the duo in Lionsgate’s official press release.

The Arad’s are best known for their work with Iron ManSpider ManThe Amazing Spider Man,X-MenGhost Rider and Blade.

Unfortunately, Lionsgate did not mention when production on the film is scheduled to begin, nor did they provide a tentative release date.

Borderlands takes place on the planet Pandora, which is located at the end of the universe and has since been deserted by the mining corporation that founded it. But the planet still hosts a colorful cast of characters.

 The colonists are drawn there in search of a better life as well as vast mineral resources said to be on the planet, free for the taking, akin to a futuristic gold rush. Some time after settling, the colonists discover that there is little the planet offers aside from some decrepit alien ruins. When the companies mining the planet leave, they let loose the criminals they had employed as forced labor and left any other colonists there. Some of the settlers seek to get rich quick by discovering alien technology. Most others are just trying to survive. After seven Earth years, the planet’s slow orbit brings a transition from winter to spring, and many horrifying creatures emerge from hibernation.

A beacon of hope for the remaining colonists emerges in the form of a mysterious alien Vault carved in the side of a mountain. This Vault is said to contain vast stores of alien technology and secrets. The only problem is that the people who discovered the Vault were completely wiped out by some sort of protective force. The only evidence of their discovery is a scattered radio transmission, proclaiming the Vault’s majesty, but not its location. (Wikia.com)

The game was developed by Gearbox Software and published by 2K Games. It was originally released in 2009 for Xbox, PS3, and PC, and several sequels have been released since.

Are you excited to see Borderlands come to life? Let us know in the comments below!

First Look at Michael Fassbender in ‘Assassin’s Creed’

The live action movie version of the wildly popular video game Assassin’s Creed is getting ready to begin filming very soon in London and Spain. With that, we are getting our first look at the film’s star Michael Fassbender, who will be playing Callum Lynch, an original character created for the film.

Check out the image (which was exclusively shared by Yahoo!) below:


This photo is going to serve as a really great reference shot for all the cosplayers out there. I personally like how you can see the different textures and the intricate details on the blade. And that scruff!

The film will be based on an original story line, but elements elements will be taken from the original game(s). Fassbender’s Callum learns that he is a descendant from a line of assassins, most notable being Aguilar, who lived in Spain in the 15th century. The knowledge and experiences he gains from Aguilar will help in the present day in the battle against the Knights Templar.

Assassin’s Creed will be distributed by FOX and is being directed by Justin Kurzel. The movie will also feature Marion Cotillard, Michael Kenneth Williams and Ariane Labed.

You can check out Assassin’s Creed when it hits theaters next year on December 21, 2016.
