My Contribution to the Facebook / Google+ Slap Meme

I call this: tech,web — Posted by KP @ 7:50 pm

If you’ve been hanging around the interwebs this week, you may have seen some animated gifs going around in which Google+ is represented bitchslapping Facebook in various ways.

As far as I can tell, this was the first one:

In the past day or two, many more have popped up, not just slaps, but pretty much any manner in which a Facebook icon can be embarrassed or otherwise pwned by a Google+ icon.

So here is my contribution:

This is what I think of when I think of a good ass-kicking.

“The Mac is Kicking Ass” Music Video

OK, I’m not a huge fan of autotune, or stupid YouTube videos, and I clicked on this one with very low expectations, but it won me over with its charming tune and visuals.

It’s Phil Schiller at Apple’s recent WWDC, auto-tuned and set to music.*

In other news, I am impatiently awaiting the release of Mac OS X Lion, rumored for July 14, which is 4 days from now, and entirely too far away. I think perhaps I should watch the WWDC keynote again to refresh my memory about how some of the new features work so I can get down to business once it’s installed.

*one note: for some reason the video uses a clip of the $129 price tag. That was part of Phil showing what OS upgrades used to cost. Lion, like Snow Leopard before it, is $29. Much more kick-ass.
