Any favorites? I honestly had to google to find out about some. I saw the google hasselhoff photobomb (http://googleblog.blogspot.com/2014/03/introducing-auto-awesome-photobombs.html)update. It took some googling to find the pokemon master update for google maps (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4YMD6xELI_k). I probably shouldn't admit how many hours I swiped around catching them on my iphone. A random one but I think it's funny, homestarrunner did an update out of the blue (www.homestarrunner.com (http://www.homestarrunner.com/)). (It's the intro on the site). On the bright side, two new windows 98 themes come out of the deal ;-)

Seagate made a subtle jab at Western Digital. Note the colors of the product line.

I *just* now saw one from our retro development friends Hyperkin (http://t.co/ePi8eAtsuy). I admit I was actually sorta excited when I saw it then noticed the date.
