    Instagram videos cap out at 15 seconds. Vines? Six. As Steve Goldboom learns, though, those are still too long -- by 13 and four seconds, respectively. Yep, the new episode of his mockumentary series On the Brink of Greatness is all about the ridiculousness of social video apps. Welcome to the future where celebrities are made overnight and all they need to do is have a door slammed into their face while someone points a cellphone at them.

    Engadget is the definitive guide to this connected life. Technology isn't all about bits and processors. It's the car with no driver, human organs printed in a lab and leisurely flights into space. It's the future and we're here to tell you all about it. Since 2004, Engadget has exhaustively covered cutting edge devices and the technology that powers them. As we enter our second decade, we're looking beyond the gadgets themselves to explore how they impact our lives.
