Mr T Pities The Fool Who Doesn’t Buy His App [Review]

I ain't releasin' no app! Oh, wait.
I ain't releasin' no app! Oh, wait.

Mr T is now 60. Let me repeat that for you, fellow children of the 1970s and 1980s: Mr T is 60 years old.

He could have left all that “I pity the fool” and “I ain’t getting on no plane” stuff behind him many, many years ago. But why let a good catchphrase go to waste? Especially when there’s a whole App Store’s worth of money to made from it.

I didn’t expect Card Now to actually make me laugh, but it did. The idea of a business card-conjuring trick app made me shiver with horror – why would I inflict such a thing on other people?

But the reality, when I tried it out, was hilarious. When I “magically” pulled a freshly-printed business card off of my phone’s screen and into the real world, people’s reactions were delightful. I ended up laughing out loud.

Sir Jonathan Ive, Apple’s Senior Vice President of Design, is much like Apple’s products: at best, he only comes in two colors. Even though he has been used in promotional videos for eight new Apple products in just the past three years, he has only ever worn two shirts through all of them.

Luckily, he’s Lon Chaney-like in regards to the number of expressions he can put on his face. Unfortunately, not all of them are what we would call strictly dignified.

Official Mitt Romney Photo App Can’t Spell “America”

By

Yes folks. I'm with Mott.
Yes folks. I'm with Mott.

Matt Rimney’s campaign has released an official photo app with a text template that reads “A Better Amercia.” Ooops.

The app comes with a bunch of text overlays (the others, you’ll be pleased to hear, with correct spellings throughout) that you can add to photos of – well, anything you consider suitably Republican and Presidential. I’m sure you’ll come up with something.

It’s not even a very good app. The image you line up in your viewfinder gets shifted down considerably when the overlay is applied, so don’t bother with careful composition.

Oh, and take note of the terms of use: “By using this application, you may be placed on Romney for President Inc’s contact list.”

You know what to do, people of Amercia! Show Mutt Rumnoy your support! Some folks have already started.
