The Living Hell of Dealing with Clients

This is a hilarious video that overly-exaggerates the never-ending torture that comes from dealing with many of the clients when freelancing.

Can You Compete with Google Search?

This is a short video by CollegeHumor that uses sarcasm to point out the possible lack of competition for the Google search engine: httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W268COdhmV0 Microsoft launched Bing in an attempt to make life difficult for Google.

Spamming started back in 1978 on the network of the…

Apple Introduces MacBook Wheel

A hilarious video by The Onion taking a humorous approach to Apple’s philosophy: httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9BnLbv6QYcA While the report is completely fictitious, there are a number of valid points made (through exaggerating): Apple are always desperate to be “innovative” in anyway, to the point of over-looking what the consumer is actually looking for InĀ  many cases, the company looks to sell features…

Microsoft “Table”

The Microsoft Surface has been announced for a while now, but this video takes a sarcastic approach to the same advertisement Microsoft had used to market their new product.
