Announcing: Snapdragon Stadium

This post brought to you by Snapdragon by Qualcomm. All opinions are 100% mine.

I live right outside of New Orleans, the home of what was once the Superdome.  It recently got a name change and is now called the Mercedes-Benz Superdome, which I guess means it's supposed to be more high-end.  It's too bad I don't live in San Diego, because their Qualcomm Stadium is being renamed to Snapdragon Stadium for 11 days!  That's much more awesome than Mercedes-Benz anyday!

Starting December 18th for 11 days, Qualcomm Stadium will be named after Qualcomm's most famous processor chips:  Snapdragon Stadium.  During this time, the stadium will host a Chargers vs. Ravens game and two college games: the San Diego County Credit Union Poinsetta Bowl on Dec. 21 and the Bridgepoint Education Holiday Bowl on Dec. 28!

I'm excited for the name change because I feel that this could pave the way of bringing in some "geeky" flair to sports.  I heard a lot of "what?"s coming from people when they heard about the Snapdragon name change but others knew about the awesome little processors.

Snapdragon processors by Qualcomm are the digital brains inside mobile devices made specifically for smart phones.  Many top manufacturers, such as Samsung, Nokia, HTC, and LG, use these processors to get lightning-fast devices.  Over 250 devices contain these processors, such as the new HTC Rezound, Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9, and the LG DoublePlay.

Qualcomm's Snapdragon processors are amazing for mobile gaming and multi-tasking, which is why many of these high-end devices use them.  I honestly couldn't imagine using my Galaxy Tab without having a Snapdragon processor.  It just wouldn't feel right.

What do you think of the name change?  What other "geeky"-type products would you like to see a stadium get renamed, if even for a short time?

21 Jump Street Posters and Trailer Revealed

Have you ever heard of the TV show 21 Jump Street starring Johnny Depp?  If not, it was a show about undercover cops who specialize in youth crime because they look young and can blend in.  The new movie starring Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill follows suit and seems to be a little...dirtier.  See why after the jump

Christmas Food

Christmas is waited for year-round by kids and adults.  You know when the time is coming because every company in the world lets you know not even an hour into Thanksgiving (in America.)  While many people love the gifts and the spirits, both mentally and drunkenly, some people are in it just for the Christmas food.

Pimp My Cube Contest

This post brought to you by Contest Factory. All opinions are 100% mine.

Do you have a messy, unorganized, or technologically impaired cubicle? Maybe your office space is cluttered with crap and comes across as tacky and dirty? If so, do we have a contest for you: the Pimp My Cube Contest.

All you have to do is make a video explaining why your cube needs to be pimped.  Tell us all about how you have an office with one of those huge, bulky desktops and a "clinkety-clank" keyboard.  You know the ones we're talking about; beige, loud, and unsightly.  After that, you upload your video to the Pimp My Cube website and get to voting!

Get your friends, family, co-workers, co-workers family, co-worker's family's friends and everyone else you can possibly think of to vote for your cubicle.  To further increase your odds, vote and comment on other videos and don't forget to invite others to register for the contest.  All of this helps get you extra sweepstakes points.

If Contest Factory determines that you have the worst cubicle, they'll Pimp Your Cube!  Of course, the judging is based on a number of points, such as worst (or best?) office, most convincing story, and most votes.  If I were you, I'd jump at this opportunity because as I'm writing this post, NOBODY has entered!  That sh*t cray!

The grand prize is valued at $1200 and consists of the winners choice of either:

  • New computer system
  • New Furniture and decorations
  • Entertainment package (speakers, espresso machine, etc.)

The second sweepstakes prize is a $200 gift card given to a random entrant at the end of the contest.

So get together a funny video and a great story and make yourself a star and a winner.  It's really easy to upload videos straight from your phone to the site, so you can even do it on the go if you want!  In fact, you could do it with your phone or webcam right now.  The contest runs 12/5/11 until 1/31/12 at 12:00 PM.

What are you waiting for? Check out the video below and make it happen!
