In case you missed it the first time, I gave PARADE Magazine some updated questions for the quiz that I helped them with last year. But I know it’s impossible to stump Tallyheads, am I right?

The Office Golf GameThe Office Mini Putt Golf Game

This is a game for the iPhone and iPod Touch, and costs $1.99. I have not played it myself, so I’m interested to hear your review!

  • Get an Office wallpaper
  • While you can purchase episodes of The Office from the iTunes store, you can also watch episodes of ‘The Office’ for free — as long as you don’t mind the lower quality and the fact that each episode is divided into clips. From your iPhone, go to http://m.nbc.com/iphone.

‘The Office’ on your iPhone

The Office iPhone

You can now watch full episodes of ‘The Office’ on your iPhone for free!

Just go to http://m.nbc.com/iphone from your iPhone and then click the Video tab.

Naturally, playback using WiFi is highly recommended over AT&T’s much slower EDGE network.

The good news is that AT&T may soon be offering FREE hotspot WiFi to its customers, including many Starbucks locations! So you can watch ‘The Office’ while sipping your morning latte. (I tried this at my local ‘bucks in Mountain View this morning — it works!)

And hopefully more episodes will become available soon — right now it’s just ‘Job Fair’ and ‘Did I Stutter?’.

Still, it’s not a bad start …

Future Dwight helps to demo iPhone


During Steve Job’s Macworld keynote address today, he announced the coming of a revolutionary new product called the iPhone.

To show off the iPhone’s video capability, he used the cold open from ‘Branch Closing’ in his demo!

Click here to see a demo of iPhone’s widescreen video capability, brought to you by The Office and Future Dwight. (link no longer available)

I worked at Macworld myself today, and believe me, the excitement surrounding this thing was unbelievable. And yeah, the phone is FREAKING COOL.

Tipsters: Too numerous to mention! But I appreciate each and every one of you.
