Well, you know a meme is winding down in “cool factor” when developers start creating videos like this one. Not that there’s anything wrong with that, as the following video of iOS development objects and assets do the Harlem Shake, like any number of thousands of videos on YouTube.

Here’s Barack Obama taking control of a Sphero during a visit to Boulder, Colorado yesterday.
If you live outside the U.S and UK, you’ll find that the easiest and quickest way to get your favorite TV shows onto your iPad is via BitTorrent. But until now, you had to do some heavy post-download processing to make the XVID files play on your iPad, or at least use third-party software to play it.
Now, many BitTorrent groups have switched to the x264 MP4 format for most new releases. That’s good news for iPad and Apple TV users, but there’s even more entertainment to be had from this story: The BitTorrent pirates are crowing about the switch and even threatening to boycott the downloads.
Yes, you read that right. Pirates are threatening to boycott illegal TV show downloads.
VLC, the cross-platform play-everything-and-we-mean-everything video client is about to go 2.0 on the Mac. And amongst all the new features is one very welcome change: A completely re-designed interface that makes it look a lot more at home on Apple hardware than the open-source v1.x ever did.
As 2011 comes to a close, it’s interesting to look back on Apple’s accomplishments throughout the year.
In this video, Cult Of Mac takes a look back at the top Apple events of 2011.
Update: Unfortunately, the video has been pulled again.
An interesting music video by Apple Store employees was floating around the internet yesterday, but the video was eventually pulled. (It was that good.)
Now, the video has been re-uploaded to YouTube for all to see. The rap outlines Apple’s customer support steps of service that new retail employees have to learn.
A gold start to anyone that can sit through the whole song.
This TEDTalk was given by Thomas Suarez at TEDxManhattanBeach. Thomas is in the 6th grade at a middle school in the South Bay, and he’s made several apps for the App Store and established his own company, CarrotCorp.
Besides his fantastic presentation skills, Thomas is an amazing testament to how the younger generation is shaping the world of technology. What a smart kid. Steve Jobs would be very proud.
And we’re downloading his app, Bustin Jieber, as we speak. It looks fun.
Many thanks to one of my other early inspirations (and now a friend), Gary Wolf of Wired and Quantified Self, for Tweeting it earlier tonight. Just astounding how much clarity Steve already had about what could and needed to be fixed in the tech industry. All of it and more has now come true. Though iCloud is only starting to match what Steve had with networked storage way back then.
Don’t have the time to watch the full Apple Keynote? Here’s the whole thing, compressed down into just 90 seconds. Catch the video after the break.
