Funny Windows Phone TV ad that targets Android and Apple fans

windows phone ad
The new Windows Phone TV ad that will start showing today, while it does make fun of Android users alongside iPhone users, is a pretty funny one.

The ad’s story takes place at a wedding where people start fighting over what phone each one of them is using (and most of us will probably have to admit having done so more than once). You might even hear some of the cliché lines some of us use during said fights.

A couple of waiters are shown filming the fight using Nokia Lumia 920 and stating the obvious, that users of the two platforms like fighting, (it’s part of the fun, isn’t it?). You can watch the ad below:

[Manga] Initial Impressions: Kagerou Days

Kagerou DaysSo I started reading a manga called Kagerou Days. The manga is relatively new and is currently in progress with only 8 chapters released so far.

Kagerou Days is definitely a shounen manga with it's sci-fi, slice-of-life, romantic comedy featuring a NEET named Shintaro Kisaragi encountering a cheeky cyber girl, Ene. Ene gets up to all sorts of mischief which makes Shintaro's life hell.

I just finished the first chapter, and I am already into the manga. It is excellently written and illustrated and the characters are appropriately portrayed with the story.

I am looking forward to the adventures and comedic moments of the duo's lives.

Initial Impressions: 8/10
