[Updated for improved fairness] What the shit is this? I think New York Times' David Pogue just challenged the Internet to a gadget-video deathmatch. I just saw this video where he cranks an iPod speaker backpack to 11 in a quiet library, has a bikini'd babe dunk it in a hot tub, and finally drenches it in lighter fluid and sets it ablaze.
Actually, the video mockingly edits out the fun parts, in response to some blogger with a shitty sense of humor who compared his hijinx to the crap on America's Funniest Home Videos. (The blogger was NOT me, really. I call him a nutjob, but love the work. ) So basically, David Pogue just used the Grey Lady to flame a random blogger. How...bloggerish of him. Can't really blame him, though. What would you do if someone said your jokes reminded them of Bob Saget?
