Facebook Phone

Hey, do you guys remember Dartanion London? Sure you do, and not just because he has the coolest stage name you’ve heard since Snoop Dogg changed his breed. But also because he was one of the first to mock Google Glass with style and a lot of humor.

Well, Dartanion is back and, along with two of his fellow musketeers, he’s looking to tear Facebook a new one. You know, not the social network in its entirety, as that would take an eternity, but rather the newly unveiled Facebook Phone – the HTC First.

If you’ve been keeping up with our Friday debate and some of our other recent opinion pieces, you already know what we think about Facebook Home, one of Zuckerberg’s first attempts at taking over the mobile world.

In short, we appreciate FB didn’t skin Android, we like that they had the common sense of not building an OS or, even worse, a phone from scratch. Also, in essence, Facebook’s launcher (or whatever it is) is pretty cool. But it’s too closely tied to a social network that, put simply, is the past.

Anyways, getting back to Dartanion and his latest parody sorry, leaked promo, we have to say this is even more hilarious than the Google Glass clip. But let’s not spoil all the fun and leave you to it.

So how about it, guys? Will you be getting the FaPhone to keep your friends close and your frenemies closer? Will the FacePhone be twice as useful as the MySpace pager? And just how psyched are you about the soon to be unveiled FarmPad?

    “But it’s too closely tied to a social network that, put simply, is the past.”
    Facebook is the past? First I’ve heard. There I was thinking it was the second most visited website on the planet. Gee.

      People are leaving for the first time in history from Facebook. But there’s a “but”. Many people can’t completely leave FB, because everyone is there. Their friends, family, relatives, random people (for stalking/if you get new friends). I left FB, but I didn’t delete my account so that I can sometimes go and watch what’s up. I’d like l my friends to move to G+, but that ain’t happening :( So yea, not the past yet but hopefully soon
