Video: This is truly astonishing work by YouTube user Eleanora Poe. Because Netflix is adapting Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events as a series, this completely unofficial, fan-made teaser trailer of sorts for the adaptation was made (for fun?). If Netflix's series is half as good and creepy as this, the show will be fantastic.
HBO has very slowly teased and trickled footage from Game of Thrones season 5 with a secret website and now this new elaborate seemingly self-destructing mobile-only video teaser. Luckily, the footage -- which could only play once and not be screenshotted -- was leaked online and we have a few more seconds to get excited.
SpaceX, already famous for sending the first private spaceship into orbit last year, is at it again. On April 5, the company is promising something big, but won't say what.
As you may already know, Alienware has a gaming laptop coming out next month with a name that automatically sets the bar impossibly high: "Allpowerful." The latest ad in their teaser campaign features a riddle that has been cracked by Larven on the NotebookReview forums.
There are no real details yet, but the e-reader company iRex has a teaser site up promising to unveil a "new era in digital reading" on September 22nd. We're not sure what kind of improvements they're going to make on their iLiad reader to make it worthwhile in this current market. Obviously, they are going to need to try pretty hard in order to take on the likes of Amazon's Kindle. Alright iRex...WOW me!
Moody, very moody, and quite serious: that's how I'd label the new teaser from Canon that gives the merest hints of an upcoming "serious" EOS camera. Have a look at that bulky shoulder and the smooth curve over the pentaprism mount—classic high-end EOS right there: the apparent lack of pop-up flash is the give-away. Clearly it's time for Canon to draw attention away from Nikon with its swanky new D90, but what's it got ready for us under the "destined evolution" banner? Best guess so far is a 5D upgrade, but over to you in the comments, EOS fans.
newVideoPlayer("/crazynokiavid_giz.flv", 506, 306,""); Nokia's teaser site that promised the weirdest clip ever made has just coughed up that video in question, and yeah, it's pretty damn weird. The first puzzle is almost impossible to solve by non-brute force methods if you don't have a Nokia phone, but if you do, it's a matter of watching the video and plugging in the symbols in the correct order. For those of you who don't want to try it for themselves, you can see the video after the jump. We're still unclear what phone this is teasing for.
newVideoPlayer("sony_nothing.flv", 475, 266,""); Sony's launching a new ad campaign on April 22, following up all those other spots we're crazy about. We got our hands on the teaser, entitled "Nothing," and it is both very cool and totally irritating at the same time, because "Nothing" is exactly what happens. Kind of. It's a bunch of smug film dudes talking with British accents about explosions and special effects, while doing increasingly crazy things with their cameras. If I was one of those cameras in the video, I'd be praying for a stunt double—look for the one that gets tossed off a bungee platform, and the other that gets rolled down a friggin' mountain. But all of this build-up is for what, Sony? WHAT ARE THEY SHOOTING!!??!
A Motorola teaser video popped up on YouTube, complete with people lugging around TVs, laptops, CDs and DVD players. The spot ends with the statement "It doesn't have to be this hard." Word on the 'nets is this vid is for Motorola's Z12 phone, which is said to have significant multimedia features (mobile video, 5 MP camera, 3G, Wi-Fi, GPS, etc...). Expect to hear more on this at 3GSM in Barcelona next week.

When we last played the Duke Nukem series, it ran exclusively on German Enigma machines, which means that unless this teaser trailer showed graphics so far ahead of its league that it makes Crysis look like stick figure drawings, there's no way that anybody will be impressed. It's not that the graphics are horrible, but we've seen similar from Gears of War—and that was last year. At least the voice actor and dialogue is still the same, which means 15-year-old Jason would love it.
newVideoPlayer("xpsteaser_gawker.flv", 475, 286);Dell's gone and posted a teaser site for its upcoming One all-in-one PC, complete with cryptic trailer only showing parts of the machine. The suspense is killing me! Or at least it would be if we hadn't discovered all sorts of pictures of the thing on the FCC website a couple weeks ago.
It's hard to tell what this SonyDrive website is, partially because it's in Japanese, and partially because the product doesn't really look like anything we'd use. Judging from what's behind the bow, this can either be an industrial paper cutter, a 1980s electric typewriter, a gigantic notebook that can withstand a nuclear explosion, a scale for dogs, the PlayStation 4, the ashes of former PlayStation chief Kutaragi, a new MiniDisc Macro, a Bravia TV Shuffle, a Green-Ray movie player, the actual ending to Halo 3, or something we might actually buy. We'll see!
newVideoPlayer("braviabunny_gawker.flv", 475, 286);Last month, NY was overwhelmed by Play-Doh bunnies as Sony shot its new Bravia ad. Well, folks, you've got a few weeks to wait for the spot to air, but until then, here's a tiny taste of what's to come.
