Fair cop: Windows-based signage and displays can sometimes go a little bit sideways, to hilarious effect. This snapshot of Samsung's East London storefront, featuring a delightfully stark "Ctrl+Alt+Del" reminder, is a lovely example of the genre -- and it rates our weekend No Comment badge. Thank...

We don't care that the falling phones are CG animated; we don't even care that they have a hypothetical NFC patch on the back. This is a great video that put a smile on our faces. We offer it to you as today's No Comment. It's done by the same studio that inadvertently fooled an NYC TV statio...

We knew there'd be some broken hearts when WWDC tickets sold out in two hours this morning, but even this might be pushing it. A San Francisco resident has posted an ad to Craiglist pleading for a WWDC ticket. Since they're nontransferable, this would presumably require a legal name change on...

It may just be an art installation and not a commercial product, but what Apple fan wouldn't want to buy a bottle of scent offering the essences of, ink, paper, foam, sticky tape, and a hint of glue? For the enthusiast who has everything, who has ransacked the Mothership store for wardrobe, the...

The MacBook Air is thin, especially at the end of the taper. One might even say "razor thin." One user took the notion to a ridiculous extreme by using the laptop to prepare a meal, slicing shrimp, mushrooms, lettuce and other things with the Air's case.
