Maybe this week was extremely tough for us, or perhaps we're just imagining things, but we can't think of anything better to do than to crawl into bed and sleep forever. For some odd reason, we don't even have the desire to play any games. It's like pushing buttons and the like are too much work f...

While we will always enjoy the British (see: O.G.) version of The Office more, the American version starring funny man Steve Carell has begun to grow on us. We're not quite sure if we're ready to play a video game based on the show, however. Universal seems to think many are, though, as they announc...

In a first for a U.S. television studio, NBC said that it would permit customers to purchase prime-time TV shows at will and on demand to play on their cellphones, similar to Verizon's new offering. Maybe the old guard of television sees how media viewing and takeaway content is changing, eh? Anyhoo...

Our old friend Dave pointed us to a Newsday article discussing how iTunes essentially took NBC's The Office off the chopping block, where it was headed last year after disappointing Nielsen ratings, and catapulted it to "the Seinfeld of iTunes."

The article states that Apple doesn't pay for all that publicity, but the company won't discuss how their products end up helping CSIs track dow...
