Watch Jimmy Fallon’s ‘Oprah Moment’, gifting The Tonight Show audience iPad Air 2’s

Alongside Justin Timberlake, Jimmy Fallon has become the voice of the iPhone 6 with Apple releasing a continuous series of ads featuring both entertainers. Fallon also sits behind a MacBook on the set of The Tonight Show on NBC, something that he brought over from his time hosting Late Night on NBC.

Now Fallon’s Tonight Show is giving the gift of Apple, specifically to the studio audience from last night’s taping as each attendee was gifted with a brand new iPad Air 2 as part of this week’s holiday gift giveaway segment. See the clip above (and wish you were there!) …

First up we have the JayBird BlueBuds X. These are fantastic Bluetooth earbuds. The have excellent sound and an impressive 8 hour battery life. The BlueBuds X come with silicon tips, but I recommend picking up Comply Foam tips for an additional $15. They are more comfortable and provide a very secure fit. The BlueBuds X also come with a handy carrying case and a Micro USB charging cable to charge them up. Currently, these awesome little earbuds are available for about $150 and the Comply Foam tips can be had for around $20.

Google introduces Route 85 web series geared towards iOS developers

Screen Shot 2014-12-12 at 8.48.33 PM

Google may own the world’s most popular mobile operating system in Android, but it wants iPhone and iPad developers to recognize that the company has a lot to offer for them as well. Enter a new web series called Route 85, which will consist of a set of videos uploaded to the Google Developers channel on YouTube to showcase everything from SDKs to code libraries that iOS developers can take advantage of.

Google developer advocate Todd Kerpelman is tasked with leading this new series of videos for iOS developers, beginning with the humorous introduction clip below. While its bread and butter is and always will be Android, Google has a number of iPhone and iPad apps on the App Store, including Google AdSense, Google Analytics, Google Drive, Google Maps, Blogger, Chrome, Gmail, Hangouts, Inbox, Google+ and YouTube.

It might seem perplexing that Google is willing to cater to developers working on another mobile platform, but the search company can benefit from an expanded audience to push its advertising and services to. Additionally, the wide array of apps and services that Google provides for the iPhone and iPad serves as a potential gateway for future converts to Android. Ultimately, it’s a win-win situation for Google.
