PEZ Candy Goliath vs PEZ Fanboy David

Posted in GETV Episode by ekai on the August 5th, 2009

You’ve heard this one before. Big faceless corporate giant who makes adorable product goes after small-time fanboy who loves adorable product. In this case, it’s the PEZ Candy Company suing Gary Doss, the owner and curator of a museum of PEZ memorabilia. Gary has run the Burlingame Museum of PEZ Memorabilia for 14 years and this isn’t the first time evil faceless PEZ has tried to shut him down. PEZ’s latest demand includes the destruction of Gary’s adorable oversized snowman dispenser of PEZ that you’ll see in this video.

Our tour of Gary’s museum of PEZ was shot 2 years ago, long before his current legal situation, so we’re rerunning it. Irina and iJustine, who happened to be in town then, take you on a tour of the amazing, wonderful and hopefully, longer lived Museum of PEZ Memorabilia.

Massage Release of CES 2009

Posted in GETV Episode by ekai on the January 20th, 2009

GETV was invited by Intel to come to the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, and we were happy to go. While every other new outlet was happy covering the Palm Pre (thinner than Nicole Ritchie, they say!) and the best blu-rays, GETV decided to go where the PEOPLE went! The most crowded booths at CES 2009 were the massage chair booths, so we sent our massage chair correspondend iJustine to scope out the best massage chair releases of 2009 and tech pundit Xeni Jardin gave us her input. Drew Carey provided some potical advice for Obama’s tech platform and Eric Lin was the naysayer in the group. If you think you know what happened at CES 2009, you have no idea.

Exploring the PEZ Museum

Posted in GETV Episode by ekai on the November 1st, 2007

The fun dispensable candy known as PEZ is undoubtedly one of the geeky wonders of the world. We got super excited when we learned that the world’s only PEZ museum was a mere half hour drive down the road. Justine Ezarik aka iJustine was in town, and it turns out that she’s a huge PEZ fan and collector. Only Steve Jobs or a new Apple product launch could keep her away. iJustine and Irina pay a visit, take a tour and get the history of PEZ from Gary Doss, curator of the Burlingame PEZ Museum of Memorabilia.
