The Kanye Christmas Album that wasn’t

Kanye West has not at this time created a Christmas album, but that doesn't mean you can't listen to what it'd sound like if he had.

Vizio takes jab at curved TVs with spoof ad

Curved televisions and monitors are the latest trend, but Vizio, at least, isn't happy with them. Simultaneously bashing the technology and dashing any hopes that it would be rolling out its own version, the company has created a cheesy spoof advertisement hawking a pair of "anti-curve" glasses, which look like a VR headset and include a bonus drink holder for those especially lazy days. Of course, the glasses aren't real, but to make up for the time you spent watching, Vizio has nestled a real perk amidst the humor.
