But while Google is talking about Kit Kat the operating system, Nestlé is taking the opportunity to promote Kit Kat the chocolate in a very different way, projecting it as some sort of new gadget on their new website. And they have a video to go with it as well. Read more »

There have been some particularly cheeky iPhone knockoffs, but this one is pretty entertaining. It was slowly, teasingly revealed to a mostly sarcastic crowd at 4chan with a pretty big plot twist. At any rate, it’s a fun detraction from the deluge of iPhone 5S and 5C leaks.
Like all knockoffs, this one has an almost-but-not-quite the same name as the original product. So, here’s the iploxe. Read more »
Nokia Lumia 1020′s early success is great news for the troubled Finnish company, which is trying to generate even more hype around the cameraphone flagship, releasing quite a few promo videos.

Do you get blackout drunk regularly? Because if you do, Nokia thinks you should buy the Lumia 925 – the optical image stabilization and ZEISS optics mean you can get good photos of the dodgy, poorly lit night clubs you visit, so that you can remember what you did last night.

This one is for straight-up supergeeks with way too much cash to burn so if you don’t fit into the category you may want to skip it. Only a day old, the PureView-driven Nokia Lumia 1020 has got itself the most expensive accessory it could have asked for.
Built by Lehmann Aviation the LA300 is a drone, to which the Lumia 1020 attaches, that can fly as high as 15 kilometers (that’s about 9.3 miles for you Imperial users), for as long as 30 minutes, at speeds of 20-80 km/h (12/49 MPH) and will withstand temperatures between -25 °C up to +60 °C (-13 °F to 140 °F). The only bad thing is the price tag – you’ll need to shell out a whole €4,990, and no that does not include the Lumia 1020. Read more »
Samsung Iceland released an odd, yet hilarious ad for the Galaxy S4, which takes a jab at the Apple iPhone in a never before seen fashion. The ad metaphorically highlights the advantages of the Korean flagship by employing a team of dancing ninjas and (get ready for this) a goat.
The plot of the ad is quite simple. In the beginning, a guy tries to interact with an apple as if it is an actual smartphone with “predictable” results. Read more »

Jobs, the biographical film based on Steve Jobs’ life, is releasing a couple of months from now on August 17. But before that, the creators have released the first trailer that give us an idea of what to expect from this movie.
The movie stars Ashton Kutcher playing the role of Apple’s late co-founder and ex-CEO. Although the jury is still out on Kutcher’s acting skills, there is no doubt that he looks the part, as is abundantly clear in this trailer. The movie covers Jobs’ life from 1971 to 2011, basically from the time he dropped out of college to founding Apple with Steve Wozniak in a garage, turning it into a big company, getting fired, coming back and taking it to the point where it is at today.
