Dax & Kristen Do Married Life with Samsung

Samsung might have found Apple loyalists’ soft spot with their new ad featuring newlyweds and expecting couple Dax Shepard and Kristen Bell. Samsung and Apple, who have had a long-standing battle in and out of the courtroom around smartphones and their copyrights, both released products this past month, but Samsung has taken their advertorials in a new direction, aiming directly at Apple’s tendency to “imitate” the Samsung innovations. Adding fuel to the fire, Samsung released a new commercial late Thursday night (the day before Apple’s newest iPhone 6 would be available in stores) featuring the hilarious celebrity couple utilizing a new tablet – receiving over 9 million video views overnight.

Royally Good News for the U.K.

Anglophiles everywhere are rejoicing after the announcement that Prince George, son of Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge, will soon have a new royal title: big brother!
