    It Doesn’t Get Much Better Than “Amercia”

    If I didn’t know better, it would seem this gaffe was contrived.

    After all, what better way to get non-Romney supporters to download the With Mitt iPhone (iPad) app and help the Republican presidential candidate go viral… even if it is at his own expense. It’s brilliant!

    Really hard to imagine no one throughout the production process never caught such an obvious typo. I guess this is what happens when you outsource tech overseas.

    By now v1.0.1 is available on the App Store but the old app still works. It doesn’t really matter, all the tweets and blog posts will have to run their course. There is even a Tumblr dedicated to the “Amercia Is With Mitt” meme.

    Happy Memorial Day 2012

    Tongue Tied by Grouplove

    Another song that got a huge bump from a TV commercial (in this case, Apple iPod Touch) but getting featured on Glee is not too shabby. The song is “Tongue Tied” by Grouplove.

    {Ed. Note 6/18/12: As of today, Twentieth Century Fox Film Corporation pulled the Glee version of this song off YouTube. Bummer.}
