Synopsis: Josh Fosse is a 20something guy whose life is going nowhere. His girl left, his rent is late, and he lacks a real job. He is trying to make it as an app reviewer online and decides to review a self help app called i-Lived for fun. He's signs on and immediately his life turns around. He meets the girl of his dreams and he gets a job offer he can't refuse. Convinced it's him and not the app, he signs out... and loses everything. He signs on again but this time the terms are different, the app is asking him to do things that are out of his moral comfort zone... but essential to becoming the success the app tells him he can be.

Hey, guys.

Welcome to another edition

of J-J-J-J, J-TECH!


A vlog specializing in reviewing

new consumer technologies.

Self-help is a big business

right now.

Uh, ones that help you with self

confidence, anxiety, insomnia.

A little, uh, drug addiction...

And there's apps out there for people who

think they've been abducted by aliens.

And there's tracking

devices in their brain.

It's called the Alien

Brain Scan app.

You should check it out.

It's totally weird.

However, I did find one app

that kinda stood out to me.

Unlike the other apps, which are

designed to solve a specific problem,

this claims that it can help

with an... an... with anything.

You just input your goal, and it sends you

a series of custom-tailored missions...

to help you accomplish it.

And what's really interesting

about it...

is an interactive feature...

interactive feature...

that allows you to keep track

of your progress...

by filming yourself

with your camera...

in order to help you

accomplish the mission.

The app is called I-Lived...

and I know it sounds a little

weird, but it's pretty cool,

and it's really fun

and easy to use.

So, here is the app,

which is bright and positive...

and has a guy jumping into

action with the tag line,

"You Haven't Lived

Until I-Lived."


Thank God I found this thing, 'cause

I'm ready to finally start living.

Once you've downloaded the app

and signed the user agreement,

you are then prompted to answer a

series of questions about yourself,

much like you'd find

on any dating app or Web site.

Anyway, whether you decide

to answer the questions or not,

you are then asked

to input your goal.

And what's the most important thing

for a guy to have on the beach in LA?

That's right, a six-pack.

So I entered my goal. "I want a ripped

six-pack to share with the ladies."

And I received my first mission

via text message...

that read, "Welcome aboard."

You have started your journey to acquiring

a six-pack to share with the ladies."

Oh, yeah. It is on.

So, I set up the camera

on my phone,

and began filming myself

performing each exercise.

That's me doing sit-ups,


eating right.

Not only do I look like a bird,

now I have to eat like one, too.

Me want protein.

And now the moment of truth.

I took a picture of myself

before the program,

just to do a little

"before and after" comparison.

And here's my stomach right now.



Aw. Not even a three-pack.

This is a one-pack.

In fact, all that broccoli just

made me feel a little bit bloated,

and gave me some gas.

So, it was fun because

you get to film yourself...

and share your pathetic dreams and

subsequent struggles with the world.

But it's really

not that effective...

in actually helping improve


That's why I'm gonna

give the app I-Lived...

two out of five stars.

It's not really worth it.


What the hell?

I hope I saved all that.

Oh, sh*t.

Oh, that's today.

Damn it.

I see you haven't moved yet.

Any chance of you two kids

getting back together?

I don't think so.

You should give her a call.

Yeah. Uh, no.

She left me. Remember?

Well, maybe if you had a real job with some

security, instead of these start-ups...

Dad. Really?

We sacrificed a lot

to send you to Stanford.

And what are you doing with it?

There are no real good jobs.

So, you spend all your time online playing

with gadgets and-and video games.

You know I'm trying to start

my own tech company.

The Internet's a great place

to build a following.

And I'm reviewing apps because

they're popular right now,
