Apple gets trolled in front of 105,000 Buckeye fans in Ohio Stadium

Ohio State Buckeye fans took a shot at Apple during yesterday’s game against Michigan State at Ohio Stadium. In the stands were 105,000 fans watching the 11th-ranked Buckeyes demolish the Spartans 48-3. Also taking a licking at the game yesterday was Apple, thanks to several students who were participating in a motivational stunt in the stands. These fans were holding up cards to create the letters that spell “OHIO.” This is done to whip up the home crowd, which in turn gets the home team going.

Yesterday, when the fans were spelling out “OHIO,” the letter “I” was replaced by “A[?],” …


Ohio State fans had the best response to Apple's iOS 11 glitch

TwitterFacebook

Ohio State crushed Michigan State yesterday—and they also crushed Apple. 

Ohio State fans perfectly executed a timely prank directed at the iPhone maker. During an O-H-I-O chant, when they would usually represent the “I,” fans instead held up signs that read “A[?].” 

Yep, they replaced the “I” with the nonsense “A[?]”—just as Apple did with an autocorrect suggestion for iOS 11 users this week. 

Watch the prank below:

Here's Millie Bobby Brown meeting one of her adoring fans

TwitterFacebook

Hawkins, meet The Six.

Millie Bobby Brown and Drake, two celebrities whose work has made me very emotional, met on Friday night when Brown stopped by a Drake concert in Brisbane, Australia. The two are clearly fans of each other and were thrilled to hang out IRL, which — surprise! — also made me emotional.

As if things couldn’t get any cuter, both Brown and Drake also posted delightful backstage photos. Drake opted for the serious, Eleven-esque shot…

T-Mobile: Astros fans love social media while Dodger fans like to stream video

The 2017 World Series has gone back and forth, a pitcher’s duel one game, a slugfest the next. And the Houston Astros, who just a few short years ago lost more than 100 games for three consecutive seasons, are one win away from their first title. But that isn’t the important thing. What is important is how the fans in each of the two cities used T-Mobile data on their phones while sitting in the stands during the games.

L.A. fans, perhaps due to the city’s close proximity to movie and television studios, used Netflix 250% more in Dodger Stadium during games 1 and 2, than Astros fans did …

'Rick and Morty' fans are not happy about how that Szechuan sauce promotion went down

TwitterFacebook

Hope you were first in line at McDonalds today, Rick and Morty fans. Looks like that Szechuan sauce went fast.

The condiment became a cultural phenomenon after it was featured during the show’s Season 3 premiere in April — such a phenomenon, in fact, that Mickey D’s decided to release the now-iconic sauce for one day only: October 7. 

The promotion was set to begin at 2 p.m., and Rick and Morty fans across the country made plans to snag a packet of their own.

However, many people complained on Twitter Saturday that their stores had begun selling the sauce early, or that they barely had any in stock at all. (To be fair, McDonald’s did warn customers that stock would be “really, really limited.”) Read more…

'Rick and Morty' fans won: McDonald's will offer Szechuan sauce

TwitterFacebook

The Season 3 finale might be hours away, but an even bigger day is still ahead for Rick & Morty fans.

On Oct. 7, for one day only, McDonald’s will let all comers sample a bit of that sweet, sweet Szechuan sauce. The Holy Grail of Mickey D’s condiments was a punchline way back in April, when Rick & Morty‘s Season 3 premiere streamed for just 48 hours, starting on April Fool’s Day.

A few months later when Season 3 kicked off in earnest, McDonald’s held a contest that concluded with three lucky fans getting their own bottles of Szechuan sauce. One in particular made headlines when he sold his loot to Deadmau5 — interrupting the DJ’s wedding weekend in the process. Read more…

Zayn Malik is bald now, and fans are in deep, deep mourning

TwitterFacebook

Zayn Malik is sporting a new hairdo yet again, but this time, it doesn’t involve any hair at all. He’s gone ahead and shaved his head COMPLETELY bald.

Yes, really.

The 24-year-old British singer’s mom, Trishna Malik posted a photo on Instagram posing with a VERY bald Zayn and his girlfriend, Gigi Hadid. They were celebrating Eid-al Adha, a Muslim holy festival that’s celebrated around the world, along with Hadid’s mom, Yolanda Hadid. And by the looks of it, Gigi approves.

❤️❤️❤️

Samsung posts a "Thank You" for all its fans

The second half of last year was not a good time for Samsung’s reputation. It is the time when the Note 7 saga began – first with explosions, then with recalls, then with exploding devices that were re-released as “Safe”. Ouch! Needless to say, Samsung was hard at work trying to recollect all of the Note 7 units that were out there in the wild all the while posting a new apology at least once a week.

Now that the Galaxy S8 has been successful and the Note 8 is said to have passed meticulous testing, the company would like to thank those that remained loyal to the …
