All things media and tech

Jun 17, 2014

Because we've all become unanimously obsessed with Brian Williams rapping things, yet another "rap video" of the NBC anchor emerges with Williams "performing" "Baby Got Back" this time. It's garnered 94,984 shares and is enough to make Jimmy Vielkind go, "Thank God for the Internet and video editing."

Also in news-related news, prompting 22 shares, journalist Mike Jensen pronounced, "Headline winner, today's Inky." 

Meanwhile in tech, Buzzfeed announces that Hot Or Not has returned to an overheated online dating market (113 shares). If you're wondering why you should care, Eriq Gardner at The Hollywood Reporter was among those who took note of something else: "The publicist who tweeted 'Going to Africa. Hope I don't get AIDS' landed at Hot or Not. Buried in Buzzfeed story."

Plus, from the Washington Post we learn that AT&T will exclusively carry the Amazon smartphone (424 shares). "Shades of HTC First?" wondered Dave Seifert at The Verge.
