The Kanye Christmas Album that wasn’t

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. Summoning an alternate dimension in which Kanye has decided he is Santa Claus and is prepared to unleash his "Yeezus" album all over again, this new edition presents "Kreezus." That's Kris Kringle, if ever there were a way for Kanye to be such a thing. You can listen to the full album right this minute, in all its parody-filled glory.

Vizio takes jab at curved TVs with spoof ad

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.

North Korea’s internet is down in wake of The Interview

North Korea’s internet is down in wake of The Interview

Late Sunday, the 22nd of December, North Korea began suffering a major internet outage cross-country. This sort of internet failure is not common in North Korea, and researchers have suggested that it's very possible the country is under a concentrated DDoS attack. This would be a denial-of-service for North Korea shortly after the FBI suggested whoever was responsible for the digital attack on Sony would suffer costs and consequences. Meanwhile President Barack Obama suggested that "we will respond proportionally, and we will respond in a place and time and a manner that we choose."

Netflix adds BoJack Horseman Christmas Special

If you are a fan of BoJack Horseman, Netflix has a special holiday treat for you: the BoJack Horseman Christmas Special. The show is up to stream on Netflix as of now, starring the voices of Alison Brie, Will Arnett, and Aaron Paul. Of course, the show is a lot of things -- cynical, witty, and deadpan, according to Netflix -- but it is certainly is not a saccharine sweet holiday show for the kids, which makes it all the more appealing.

Colbert Report set added to Google Business View

Most people are familiar with Google's Street View, which allows users to take virtual tours of just about anywhere. Lesser known is the company's Business View, which is exactly what it sounds like: a virtual look inside of businesses, allowing you to take a peek at a place you haven't visited before you make the trip.
