Google Assistant Oscars commercial encourages us to be lazy like the stars

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

It’s clear Google is trying to push the Assistant more than ever in 2018, particularly in the face of stiff competition from Amazon’s Alexa. Google’s presence at CES was entirely Assistant-themed and with many Chromebooks and other smart home devices getting support for the Assistant this year, it’s going to be on hand pretty much everywhere.

Google’s latest big commercial, aired during the 2018 Oscars, is an ode to laziness. With the help of celebrities like John Legend, Kevin Durant, and Sia, the ad reminds us of things the Assistant can take care of to make our lives easier.

AT&T files complaint over “unsubstantiated, false, and misleading claims” in T-Mobile holiday commercial

Cash For Apps: Make money with android app

Back in December, T-Mobile uploaded a two minute-long short to its YouTube channel, in the style of classic stop-motion specials like Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer. It mostly consists of T-Mobile CEO John Legere telling a story about how he saved the US wireless industry from the “abominable carriers.” It’s a mostly harmless video, but AT&T has decided to file a complaint with the National Advertising Division over it.

The ad only has 11,000 views on YouTube, and an additional 2.5 million views on Twitter, so the video’s impact wasn’t massive in the first place.

Want to Fly People to the Moon? Become a Commercial Astronaut.

With the commercial space industry booming, it’s highly likely that we’ll see the first space tourists departing our atmosphere in just a few years. Private company Starfighters, Inc. is preparing for that inevitability with the first commercial astronaut training program. Currently it has just one customer — but hopes to expand soon.

VICE Motherboard reports that the $ 20,000-per-flight program currently consists of training to fly Starfighters’ fleet of F-104 jets, capable of executing 90 degree turns, flying at twice the speed of sound, and floating riders into microgravity on nose dives — not a bad way to simulate launching on a rocket. (Though Starfighters only gained permission to train licensed pilots in September 2017, the F-104 are the same jets used to train Apollo-era astronauts.)

“We don’t think it’s good for the industry if people don’t go up without some knowledge of what they’re going to encounter,” Rick Svetkoff, the CEO of Starfighters, told Motherboard. “The last thing you’d want to do is see yourself climb onto a rocket with the expectation it’s going to be so cool to go to space, and then to be sick all the way.”

After all, it’s not uncommon for weightlessness to affect people new to the experience somewhat—shall we say—unpleasantly.

In the future, Starfighters plans to have a more thorough program, which will incorporate the same elements used to train professional astronauts. Svetkoff told Motherboard this will prepare space tourists for what they’ll experience on a longer trip, including preparation for intense G forces and neutral buoyancy training for when gravity releases entirely.
Before that can happen, however, Svetkoff will have to get the F-104s certified as Space Support Vehicles, a designation that’s currently in process.

In 2007, Starfighters signed a deal with NASA to help the agency develop commercial space flight, which gave them a permanent role at NASA and space in the former space shuttle landing facility. That means Starfighters Inc. will almost certainly play a role in training space tourists for NASA partner SpaceX, which hopes to shoot two tourists off to the moon as early as late 2018. Competitors BlueOrigin and Virgin Galactic have plans of their own to launch space tourism on a similar timeline. Training could help those tourists prepare for the sometimes surprising effects that space has on the body — and ensure that they all survive the trip.

Nokia’s hilarious new commercial will teach you the art of ‘Phone Shui’

These days, many advertisements try to be truly different to stand out from the crowd and get people talking. Nokia seems to be attempting this approach with its new ad, which features a guru teaching an apartment renter about the arts of minimalism and ‘Phone Shui.’ In other words, Nokia is pushing its pure Android angle.

The commercial stars ”minimalist guru and superstar vlogger Aapo Hämälänanainen,” who has somehow made his way into a man’s apartment and gotten rid of all of his things (including his roommate). Hämälänanainen then calms the man down, telling him that all of his things weren’t necessary.

Teaser for Amazon’s Super Bowl LII commercial hints at new Alexa voices

Watch Jeff Bezos in this teaser for Amazon’s Alexa Super Bowl commercial

Alexa, from stranger to star.

In the tradition of “Papa” John and the late Wendy’s founder Dave Thomas, Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos has cast himself in this year’s Super Bowl commercial for the company’s Alexa voice assistant and Echo speaker.

In a teaser posted to YouTube, Amazon asks: “Sounds like Alexa might have lost her voice, but who could possibly replace her?” It looks fun!

What’s interesting is that it’s only been two years since Alexa and the Echo was still an odd, niche, sleeper-hit device — beloved by early adopters and then introduced to the masses in this 2016 Super Bowl commercial starring Alec Baldwin, Dan Marino, Jason Schwartzman and Missy Elliot:

Now Alexa is part of mainstream culture — a real hit, and a real chance for Amazon to play an unexpectedly large role in the future of voice computing. Two Super Bowls later, she needs no introduction.

(And as Amazon has dominated business news headlines with its acquisition of Whole Foods and attention-grabbing HQ2 hunt, Bezos — now the world’s richest person, and no. 1 on the Recode 100 — likely needs no introduction, either.)

Worth noting: The commercial stars Stephanie Allynne, whose wife is Tig Notaro, whose beloved show “One Mississippi” was just canceled by Jeff Bezos’s Amazon. Awkward.

Also worth noting: This isn’t Bezos’ first TV commercial rodeo. As Bloomberg’s Nick Turner reminds us, he also played himself in a Taco Bell spot in 2001:
