Of course there's no way this is a response to Santa using Siri, right? It really doesn't matter, what matters is that this commercial is completely lovely and makes for a warm cup of hot chocolate directly from Google's Android headquarters where though it doesn't often snow, it certainly did this year.

What Do You Get A Dad That Has Everything?

What Do You Get A Dad That Has Everything?

It’s Father’s Day and I wish dads out there a wonderful day with your sons and daughters. I never understood my father’s love as well as the sacrifices he made until the arrival of my daughter, Allison, a little over a year ago. That being said, it’s nice having one day out of year where dads all over the world are being shown how much they’re appreciated. Giving presents or a Father’s Day card is the norm and presents can range from a drawing to an expensive flatscreen TV.

iPad is the New Christ

iPad is the New Christ

Or at least that's what the folks at One More Thing are saying, in a way, in a totally fun way, might I add, as they've here created for the world an all-apple Nativity Scene (aka Christmas Creche) for you to print out and set up for yourself. You'll find all your favorites here illustrated to witness the holy birth of the iPad. God, forgive them for their sin (if you would consider such a thing a sin,) as this is totally a bunch of fun and in no way takes away from the fun of your son's birthday party.
