Mark Erickson, host of "Infinite Solutions" shares tips and tricks with viewers on how to get the most out of technology. But his real talent is being able to tell the most outrageous lies with a perfectly straight face. His spoof videos have convinced unwary viewers to engage in such futile and masochistic behavior as continually logging in and out of their Gmail accounts, over and over, in the misguided belief that it will eventually enable them to access a secret Google TV beta. Here's a comment on the Techcrunch website from one poor soul caught in Erickson's web:
"Yeah, I had logged out and then in over 628 times before realizing that I had forgotten to archive the message first. Boy did I feel silly. I'm back up to 593 times but need sleep before continuing. Wish me luck."
If you want a laugh, watch these very clever videos---just don't believe a word he says. Via Techcrunch.
He also does an "emergency update" confirming the 'accuracy' of his instructions and denying that the video is a hoax. Talented guy---or someone with way too much time on their hands? Ah, the magic of Web 2.0.
