Winner of our HP Envy 13 notebook

When we announced our HP Envy 13 giveaway, we knew you guys would show up with some videos showing what it was that you wanted the Envy 13 to do for you (or in some cases, someone else, holiday season and all.) In all, 57 of you guys hit us with video responses on YouTube to enter. We figured it would mostly consist of people talking into a webcam (we were right,) which was fine with us. The winner was chosen by random, so there wasn’t really any reason to go all out anyway.

Imagine our surprise when we went in today and chose a random winner (hat tip to Random.org,) and it turned out to be a music video! We then started peeking around at some of the other entries, and there was definitely some creativity going on. The video at the top is done by YouTube user TheSumbiProject, and he is our random winner. We will reach out to him as soon as we hit publish on this post. That said, we wanted to share some of the other interesting entries we received, so you’ll find those after the break.

Posted by Veronica Santiago Categories: Drama, Prime Time, The CW, Internet,

The Beautiful Life's Mischa BartonThe season’s very first canceled program is now getting a second life…on the internet.

- featuring Mischa Barton, Sara Paxton and Elle McPherson - was only able to air two episodes before it was yanked by the CW. That left three finished hours sitting on the shelves.

Not wanting to waste what he helped produce, Ashton Kutcher has announced that the remaining segments will be available via YouTube. As of today, the first three weeks have been posted. The last two will debut on Monday.

“What we feel like we’re doing is creating, in some ways, an industry first,” Kutcher told Reuters. “A show that couldn’t find its legs on television, we believe can find its legs on the Web.”

Thanks to a partnership with Hewlett-Packard, all episodes will air commercial-free.

Necky: The neck Snuggie. Please, no.

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Wearables, Videos,

Please, someone explain to me why you’d need a Necky, because I am just not seeing it. What is wrong with the regular clothes that we already have, and have used for generations? Why do you need a chestplate that is fashioned out of cheap cloth to stay warm in the winter? Huh?? Answer me!! It’s a scarf, not a freaking bow tie. Learn how to wear one, Necky enthusiasts!


2009 Holiday Gift Guide: LG 47LH50

LG 47LH50

We wanted to find a nice mid-range HDTV we could recommend this year, and we think the LG 47LH50 is it.This is LG’s 47-inch, widget-powered television, and it brings the heat with a 1080p display, and 5.1 surround sound output. Why would you want to output sound from the display? Well, thanks to the Yahoo! widget support, you get things like Netflix, YouTube, and a bunch of other embedded media playback services, including the Vudu streaming movie service. Just connect the LG 47LH50 to your home network, and the content is right at your fingertips. The part, though, is the price. These typically sell for about $1500, but Amazon is selling it for $1,139.

Video: Old-school Lady Gaga at NYU

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Performances, Videos, Pop,


As if we needed any more reason to admire the talent of , we just came across this video of her from her pre-Gaga (and pre-blonde) days. Here, she is performing at the annual NYU talent show as Stefani Germanotta, performing Captivated and Electric Kiss while playing piano.

We also like what she says at the 5:48 mark in the video posted after the break. She is definitely cognizant about her surroundings, and her role in the music business. Listen to her comments about her album, The Fame, as well as Princess Diana.

iPhone Verizon ad

Oh man, you’ve got to love how Verizon Wireless has gotten so bold now that they’ve finally got a killer device in the to brag about. You’ve also got to love how Apple is getting a taste of their own medicine, after running the “I’m a Mac” ads for years now. Verizon is aiming to highlight their phone offerings, as well as their huge 3G network, in their holiday commercials that dump on the iPhone and AT&T. There are three so far, and we must admit, they’re pretty clever. You can watch all three commercials, one of which sees the iPhone banished to the Land of Misfit Toys, after the break.
