Watch Ron Burgandy’s PSA on Piracy

If regular anti-piracy ads featuring real people working behind the camera don't convince you to avoid stealing entertainment, perhaps Anchorman 2's fictional Ron Burgandy (Will Ferrell) will.

In the latest trailer for the highly-anticipated sequel (seen above), Burgandy offers a special report regarding their "evening's entertainment." When he realizes that the announcement is referring to film, he becomes outraged over defending "that shimmering pretender to television's crown."

Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues hits theaters December 20.

Vertical videos are bad. Stop it.

Vertical video syndrome

We're sure you've witnessed it in the past. You may have even done it yourself. Even worse, you may still do it. Vertical Video Syndrome, or VVS. Shooting videos on your smartphone vertically used to be a common annoyance that has, thankfully, been on the decline as people realize just how absolutely ridiculous the end result looks when trying to view the content on anything other than the smartphone itself. There are still some stragglers out there though, and if you know any, point them to the video that we've embedded after the break. It should drive the point home. Please, rotate your smartphone.

MobileMe shuts down tomorrow, time to migrate to iCloud

MobileMe shutdown

When Apple announced iCloud a year ago, it was with the intention of making cloud storage, syncing, and services mainstream. Demoting the computer to just another client that can access your centrally stored data. iCloud has been a success, but we know there are still some of you out there clinging on to your MobileMe iDisk storage for dear life. Well, while Apple has allowed you to continue to use the service, it's now coming to an end. MobileMe will shut its doors for good tomorrow, June 30th. You can still migrate your data to iCloud, and you should probably do that. There's no iDisk replacement though, so you might wanna just drag and drop any of that stuff over to Dropbox, which is a free (and awesome) replacement.

Sprint HTC EVO 4G LTE now available for pre-order

HTC EVO 4G LTE pre-order

Sprint is readying for the release of the HTC EVO 4G LTE, and today it moves a step closer to release. Starting today, you can pre-order yourself an EVO 4G LTE for $199.99 (or you can get it for $149.99 from Wirefly) with two-year contract. If you're not eligible for an upgrade, the cost shoots up to $549. Unfortunately, Sprint's LTE network has yet to go live, so the phone will likely be a 3G affair at launch. Disappointing, but, hey, when LTE is lit up on the Now Network, the phone will be ready on day one. Wirefly says the Ice Cream Sandwich device should ship on May 18th.


VIDEO: Lauren Conrad Offers Fashion Advice Via PSA

Reality star-turned-writer is taking to the internet (with the help of Ryan Seacrest) to promote her latest book, Style.

In her PSA, Conrad targets “fashion f****-ups,” in which she uses Anna Wintour‘s face to cover up the expletive. As humorous as it is and as much as I agree, I find it hard to listen to fashion advice from someone whose style mostly consists of flip-flops, jeans, and simple dresses. Her boldest fashion move was a Moschino dress at the MTV Movie Awards!

If you do happen to like her styling tips, her book is now available in stores.

Posted by Veronica Santiago Categories: Movies, Music, Television, Videos,


I have a feeling fans will be viewing Sookie Stackhouse a lot differently from now on.

In a new PSA for Give a Damn, a campaign that fights for gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender equality, Oscar winner Anna Paquin makes a surprise announcement: “I’m bisexual.”

The 27-year-old, who is engaged to HBO co-star , joins a list of celebrities - gay and straight - for the cause. “One hate crime is committed approximately every hour of every day in this country,” Paquin states in the clip.

Others supporting organizer Cyndi Lauper in the campaign include Elton John, Jason Mraz, Whoopi Goldberg, and Wanda Sykes.
