The Sneaker Wedge à la Beyonce.

        *Insert eye-roll* Mother Bee, Sasha Fierce, Queen B, Beyonce just committed People for The Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) Suicide. Apparently there was a sale on animal skin/fur and Beyonce was first in line.

Wearable Gadgets: Google Glass

Could Star Trek’s Geordi La Forge’s glasses and Hugh’s prosthetic eye be the inspiration for Google Glass? One can speculate, but the parallels are uncanny. Google Glass is the newest headset/eyewear gadget developed by Google engineers; think of Glass as a hybrid of your smartphone and those metal rim glasses sans lenses lost somewhere in…

A Smartphone Robot: Romo

American football fans-keep scrolling; I’m not talking about quarterback Tony Romo. Romo is a cool gadget that turns your iPhone or any other iDevice into a personal robot (iPhone people, yet another reason to gloat); it was created by a bunch of  “nerds” at Las Vegas-based startup Romotive. What’s cool about Romo is that according to Romotive’s website…

Oh So Cool Short Film By Pixar’s Erick Oh: Heart

Art is a fundamental pillar for how some minds view this world; it is amazing what the unharnessed brain can create. Extraordinarily talented Erick Oh proves the latter with his short animation film-Heart. Oh, a Korean animator has accumulated a myriad of accolades for his work and is part of the Pixar family. His 2011 animation short, Heart, is an…

Samsung Galaxy S4 Announcement and Eldar Murtazin…who?

If rumors are accounts created on uncertain doubt or truth, why do we perpetuate them? For the glory of being the first to break the news to our friends and family? To feed the ego?  Who cares, we love them and we love building them up in conversations. Many rumors in the tech world originate and come…

New Tunes for Tuesday: Haim

Valley girl musicians from California?! Like, Oh my gosh this is not what you think. Haim, is a trio of musical sisters that hail from the San Fernando valley that are chill, alternative and cool.  Their music sounds like late 80’s/early 90’s pop coated with soft rock. Sisters Danielle, Este and Alana Haim, recently won the BBC Sound of…

Monica Cruz (Penelope’s sister) and the life changing donation she recieved.

Any idea on who fathered 35-year-old Monica Cruz’s baby!? Your guess is as good as mine dear reader because Cruz opted for artificial insemination. The younger sister of Penelope Cruz stated that age served as a catalyst for resorting to the unorthodox method. Cruz’s logic rests in the fact that many childless women suffer from sleepless nights  knowing that once…

Love’s On Target With Prabal Gurung.

Bravo Target! Clever to advertise a commercial that looks like a sappy movie trailer about love to grab our attention. Target’s latest commercial showcasing their latest designer collaboration with Prabal Gurung, resembles  a 30 second movie trailer: sentimental love song and all. The protagonist of the pseudo movie trailer is Juno actress, Olivia Thirlby, who wears Prabal Gurung’s collection in…

Faith Hill’s New Accessory At The Grammys.

Faith Hill’s teeth made an impression on the red carpet yesterday at the Grammys in Los Angeles. Exclamations ranging from “What is wrong with her teeth” to “Oh man is she using drugs” spewed from my fellow grammy-watching friends. She appeared gaunt, anxious and her teeth (looking as if they removed her front veneers), along with her over…

GoDaddy.com: Bar Refaeli and Jesse Heiman’s Kiss.

GoDaddy.com, your commercial managed to evoke two polarized reactions. While you unequivocally gave nerds and geeks all over the world a boost of pride, you managed to creep-out everyone else. Bravo on making the  pedestrian act of kissing and the accompanying sounds-a disturbing and creepy act to witness. The commercial halted any voyeuristic tendencies in…
