“Where am I?”

“In the village.”

“But… I threw my Samsung TicToc in the sea.”

“No, your Samsung TicToc is right here.”

“Making of Cyon Maxx CF”

This is nice. You can see the direction given to the girls by the photographer. It’s like you’re there, watching and quite close, but without being seen.

“You like photos of hot Asian’s holding up LG phones, so why not have a ‘making of’ video of Korea’s BEST and MOST FAB girlband SNSD doing an LG commercial? ‘It totally connects!’ – isn’t this a terrible way to promote your phone? PS: I totally didn’t find this video because I’m subscribed to many SNSD fan channels. Nope. Not at all” – Lee.

This one’s good. The more you look at it, the more amusing its wonky little eyes become. This update also incorporates the first ever READER’S FINGERPRINTS.

Gadget with FACES #199: The Dell Mono Laser Printer

We’re going to do lots and lots of Gadgets with FACES updates classified as #199, so it looks like we did this and this on purpose as a joke. And not because we can’t count.

What was the name of the fat old woman Les Dawson used to do?

*Jingle* Promotional Image of the Weeeeek

It’s that man again! Same PANICKED expression and rigid frame, although he seems to have ruffled his hair a little in honour of there being a celebrity around.

Wank him off, Eva. It’ll calm him down once he’s got his first one out of the way.

Here’s another one, showing Eva’s new fridge DANGEROUSLY OVERSTOCKED. There’ll be grape juice everywhere if she slams that door.

Wish we were invited to this event. Who do we talk to at LG about pretending we’re white goods journalists?

HTC Desire manufacturer-provided ILLUSTRATIVE LIFESTYLE PHOTOGRAPHY!

There’s so many of them we’ve opted to use the WordPress Gallery tool to ease the self-inflicted workload for today. There’s an odd number of photos so it’s going to look a bit messy.

“These images come built into the HTC Desire. Now when I thumb through the photo gallery on my phone you can see my cool skateboading mates pulling off RAD tricks and hot birds that I pretend to hang out with before getting to the grainy shots of my cat in my dark flat and that picture of the inside of my pocket from when the phone came unlocked by accident. Perhaps you can work out what camera these pics were actually taken from and laugh at HTC for pretending you can take this quality of pic with this phone?” – You Likee.

Samsung delivers rare chance to use term “suction power”

Samsung has launched some new vacuum cleaners. It has opted not to use a cliched housewife model, but has instead given the scene a nice 60s “vibe”. The good old 1960s. No internet, but the women didn’t complain about being the only ones that ever clean up the crumbs.

Frankly, she’d be best off getting down on her hands and knees with a cloth to clean that laminate. That would also make an even more appealing shoot.

Nice chairs. Nice shelves. Can’t say much else as we’ve already used today’s sexism allowance in the opening paragraph.

The later photos in this series show her unsuccessfully trying to insert it. It was a very brave attempt, though.

THE WORDS:
Samsung launches 3 types of cordless stick vacuum cleaner and 5 types of handy cleaner on Jun. 25th. With Samsung’s twin chamber technology, the new cordless vacuum cleaners produce a stronger suction power.

The stick type has an auto shutter function that gives an excellent edge cleaning by automatically sensing edges and corners.

On top of that, the newest cordless vacuum cleaner ensures clean exhaust air, thanks to the adoption of HEPA filter system.

BATTERIES: TIANQIU Super Cell

We made a joke. Reader “ThreeOliveMartini” emailed these battery photos in, then we replied saying “TIANQIU VERY MUCH.”

It just came to us. Just like that. We should be on stage in front of thousands, not slumped in front of a whirring Dell constantly on the verge of tears.

“Tianqiu could mean many things, including heaven-autumn or jade earplug-small dragon with horns. Hard to say without the hanzi.”

“Is it wrong to like them more when they’re torn and battered?”

“The copy under the maple/cannabis leaf says “Mercury = 0″. Phew.”
