videosWe were all expecting some big things from Apple’s conference today – Mavericks, details on the new iPad and possibly iPad Mini, and so on – but I don’t think anyone was prepared for the big bombshell. I am, of course, talking about Apple’s videos.

The keynote was accentuated throughout by a series of beautifully constructed and masterfully presented videos showcasing the technology giant’s latest and greatest achievements. And what about that iPad Air video? Did you see that iPad Air video? Holy jeeze! At one point it had a truck jumping over sand dunes in it!

We won’t know how the world will receive the new iPad Air and iPad Mini until November, but I think it’s safe to say that those of us who were able to catch the live stream of the presentation will be forever changed. Apple is a fantastic hardware and software developer, but their video creation skills are nothing short of mind-blowing.

If you wept openly the moment the word “Video” popped up on the big screen, or if you had to pause the presentation for a moment to collect yourself, please chime in below!

Love it or hate it, there's almost certainly no in between with this simple parody of RPGs.

Funny or Die is bringing their special brand of star-studded comedy to the iPad with The Occasional, a bimonthly magazine which will feature completely original content. Don’t expect a traditional magazine though, as the FoD crew has freely admitted that they have no idea what they’re doing and thus plan to spice up every issue with some offbeat content.

So far what we’ve seen in the first issue is fairly standard magazine fare, but with a very humorous twist. There’s an interview with Ed Helms conducted by comedian Zack Galifianakis, a “Hippo Fact Page” of dubious scientific accuracy, and oh so much more. If you’re tired of “serious” magazines with “real” information then this just may be your solution.

You can download a free trial of The Occasional for free, but it only provides a small taste. A full issue is $3.99 and an annual subscription is $9.99. But in all honesty, can you put a price on laughter?
