Google Android team wishes you a happy holiday; Conan makes fun of Jeff Bezos

galaxy-nexus-candy

Google’s base is Android-happy. Everyone is now carrying their Galaxy Nexus, and things could not be better for Google. The search giant’s mobile operating system is still growing, and has surpassed every other smartphone OS on the planet. Christmas is just around the corner, and the Android team simply could not miss the opportunity to thank all Android users with a fun video.

We know that Google is one of the most awesome companies to work for. These guys sure know how to have fun while staying hard at work to keep us happy. Check out the guys that make Android happen, at Building 44!

Amazon is also trying to get in the Christmas spirit, though. The Kindle Fire has been selling like firecrackers┬áthis holiday season. Conan O’Brien has decided to invite “Jeff Bezos,” Amazon CEO. It seems like people are having a few complaints about the device, and Conan has taken a humorous approach at the issue.

In this video, “Jeff Bezos” gives us a few tips to improve our experience with the Kindle Fire. He also assures us that Amazon is working hard at improving the software bugs, and they also have a fix for the “Fire.” Check out the video to chuckle a bit.

P.S.: Do you guys think Conan O’Brien is an Apple fan?

    It’s great that the atmosphere at Google is so good! Happy workers are good workers, and it really shows with ICS!

      maybe they were forced (shotgun wedding style) – you never know ;-) happy holidays

        You remind me of the people currently crying in North Korea because their “great leader” died.

    • lxgeorge

      This is what makes me love Google and Android; I bet we’ll never see Apple do anything like this. Or smile. Or show a spirit of charity.

      • Jorge Eslava

        Of course Apple would never show spirit of charity, they they could sue the homeless they would.

        • Jorge Eslava

          Just in, Apple patented card board boxes and are getting ready to sue the homeless.

      Although still very nice, Google is a great company

    • stenzor

      Not really subliminal.. they are showcasing a bunch of different products running Android in that video

  • zyphbear

    I love the Holiday Greeting from the Android team, that was a lot of fun and you could tell they wanted to show how tech can help the holiday too.

    Happy Holidays to everyone!

  • stenzor

    I love that Android holiday video

  • BiGMERF

    Fuuny stuff ! Must be such a blast to work there and be part of the team! Let me take this moment to wish every one here on Android and Me a very safe and Happy Holiday season

  • cristian cristiandonose

    Nice. I wished everyone was like at my workplace.

  • Thomas Biard

    I hope Google expands into dedicated hardware in the near future…it would give me the opportunity to apply for a Google Job without it being completely crazy. Their “campus” is sooooooo cool. It would be a dream to work there for me.

    The closest I can get is to use my Android for my work now and that is good enough. Merry Christmas to you Google Inc.

  • taketheleap

    “Merry Christmas, here’s a free Nexus.”

    THAT’S what I want.

  • ph4nthom

    Gotta love the employee focused attitude Google has.

  • http://pixelswim.com Steve Heinrich

    Google is awesome. They really add a human element to everything they do. Also, the Android atmosphere has so much character… and they use a ROBOT as a basis for their phones!

    Also, I definitely think Conan is partial to Apple.

    • azswift

      I was thinking Conan just realizes that Apple fan-boys don’t understand how anything could be compared to their Apple’s stuff. The one’s Conan is aiming for think Steve Jobs invented everything and was the most creative man to ever run the “most important tech company ever”.

      Google fans I know are generally more tech savy.

      Robots are cool.

  • Oskar Wismierski

    Merry Christmas everyone ! :)

  • Aaron Berlin

    If you take an hour and a half to watch Conan O’Brien Can’t Stop (and you really should. It’s on netflix instant so there’s no excuse) you’d see that Conan uses Apple products pretty much exclusively.

  • Anthony E

    Cool video. They should have assimilated Santa though. Maybe if he was a robot he’d be better at giving kids what they wanted!

  • tN0

    Is this an official dock for the Galaxy Nexus in the first picture?

    • http://pixelswim.com Steve Heinrich

      Looks like it’s jammed into another dock

  • DroidPower

    Wow, awesome commercial! I like how Google snuck in the panorama feature of ICS in there. Sweet stuff.

  • http://www.pizzafiles.com Gordon Wheeler

    He’s a apple fanboy for sure!

    It seems like most of the “Entertainment” people are apple fanboys…girls. It’s a prerequisite that to be at least marginally famous you must drive a prius and have an iPhone…

  • cxandroid

    :-)

    Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all Androids!

  • kwills88

    As much as I do love conan there is no denying that he loves apple… Besides that I love that android commercial especially the ending when Santa was using the gnex with panorama mode to catch old flavors of android onto the current ones

  • Skis03

    I want to work there!

  • http://androidandme.com Taylor Wimberly

    Dial Santa’s phone number for a cool surprise.

    • Edgar Cervantes

      lol, good catch!

  • jamal adam

    This is pretty dope. Happy Holidays to all.

  • HoLfElDeR

    Thanks and Happy Holidays to all.

  • securifirm

    Love Conan

  • cbmg23

    i dont think conan necessarily doesnt like android , hes a great comedian , and tv show host i love his show , because he also made fun of siri which was way more hilarious , i mean its just comedy , great comedy.

    • http://goncalossilva.com goncalossilva

      Conan making fun of things is not that unusual :p

    • Stella

      You’re correct. Conan’s show has made fun of Apple in the past.

    • littledebbie11

      Last I saw, Conan uses a Macbook & his phone is a Blackberry. Though that was a few months ago, so maybe he has an iPhone now. *shrug* He doesn’t like technology as a whole, one of the recent shows I saw, he interjected ‘Can you tell that I hate computers?.’
      He doesn’t leave anyone out though, he’ll bash whoever is in the news… He’s bashed Apple so many times, haha.

  • ArticulateFool

    Merry Christmas to you too Google!!

    O lawd… I wasn’t politically correct.

  • n25philly

    People watch Conan?

  • ramenchef

    This video makes me want to work for google so bad.

  • vid500

    Loved the video. They are so childish that’s what I like the most about google beside of the products. But I guess those two go along, happy employes are the best employes.

  • sdtrinity3

    Conan is the best late night host and he lost so many audience getting pushed off NBC. If he’s an Apple lover…Say it ain’t so!

  • Alexander drzfr3shboialex

    Thanks google :D, now where is my free GSM Nexus? lol jk

  • Ric1511

    Ah this make me want my Nexus even more. Hurry up Saturday! Also love to see my Xoom get some publicity. Can’t wait til it’s also running Ice Cream Sammich. ;)

  • Adryan maldonado

    I dont think it really matters to be honest. He probably is but all satire news comedians like john stewart and stephen colbert are apple fans(especially stephen colbert) yet they still take their cracks and jokes at them. So conan doing this is no surprise and you have to have a sense of humor. Laugh at yourself and the things that you like.

  • ndub21

    This is awesome! My wife was at Google last week for a conference and saw them making this video and got pictures with the Android figures in the snow! So jealous I couldn’t go!

  • Stella

    The Google, Inc. seem like an awesome place to work. I like the relax dress code and the bright, open workplace. The turnover rate is low and you don’t hear ex-employees talk bad about it.

    Conan like most Hollywood types are Apple fans. Apple products are often given as swag at gift lounges for events. I can’t fault Apple in knowing that giving their products away to celebrities is free advertising. My nephew school received donated Apple computers. Now, he wants to replace his windows laptop with a Macbook and he’s getting a iPod Touch for Christmas. Smart.

    Happy Holidays!!!

  • lokidokie

    Conan is not an Apple fanboy.
    I’ve been watching him from day dot and he’s never been particularly pro-Apple.
    He has done more Apple based jokes, which were just as dumb, and just as funny!

  • donger

    a big thank you to google.

  • humidity

    Happy Holidays to you too Google!

  • psipher

    The Google video was cool.
    The Conan video was kinda lame…something you’d expect Leno to do.

  • frmorrison

    Nice video
