Combining Androidify and Kinect to make a techno dance video. It must have gained a lot of interest for Androidify since the site wasn’t loading correctly for me. The app is free in the Android market.

Video: I’m a PC and I’m Gonna Kill Him

Microsoft has started another I’m a PC ad campaign. The video below is the first new video and I wanted to point it out. They setup a computer store in her house and she gets to buy a new computer. The worse part is the last line: “I’m a PC and I’m Gonna Kill Him”. That line can mean two different things. She isn’t happy that he had Microsoft setup a store in her house. Or that she isn’t happy he made her buy a PC. Either way they should have dropped the I’m a PC ad campaign and went with something else. I’m sure this is just the first of many they have lined up.

Video: Inside a Google Data Center

A look inside a Google Data Center is rare. They don’t allow just anyone to visit. They did take us on a little tour with the video below. They posted it to their GoogleApps Youtube channel. While we don’t get to see racks and racks of server there is some interesting information in the video.
