Verizon Wireless LG VX8500 Chocolate Phone

Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past month, chances are you know about Verizon Wireless’ LG Chocolate Phone. From billboards to magazine ads to flyers in the mail, buzz about Verizon’s new phone is everywhere, and cell phone fanatics are licking their lips at the thought of it.

Dubbed “one sweet phone” by both Verizon marketing execs and the general public, the LG VX8500 (as it’s technically called) hit stores on August 8 and has been flying off shelves ever since. The sexy little phone, with its touch-sensitive controls, V CAST and VZ Navigation capabilities, sliding number pad, and iPod-esque design has instantly become the must-have summer accessory.

Whether you’re looking to chat with friends, jam to some Dashboard Confessional, or watch the new Shakira video for the one-millionth time, the chocolate phone’s got what you need. A step above Verizon’s LG VX8300 music and video phone, the chocolate phone costs only $149.99 after the $50.00 mail in rebate--a pretty good deal for the hottest MP3/cell phone hybrid on the market.

And as if it isn’t tasty enough already, songs downloaded to the phone cost a mere $1.99 each and copies of the songs are sent to your PC. So, after you’ve stormed your nearest Verizon store to get your hands on a piece of the chocolate, the only thing left to do is start downloading some serious tunes.

I mean - come on now - most of us have a lineup of remote controls on the coffee table for a TV, Cable box, DVD player and our receiver. Until now, the iPod was stuck in its own land of clicking and turning when you needed to find Van Halen down at the bottom of your list.

But thanks to Harmon Kardon's slickly designed Bridge iPod docking station, you can now select music with your AVR 40 Series receiver remote either on a TV screen or directly on the receiver display itself.

Perez Hilton - Gossip Gangsta

Mario Lavandeira, master of the well-known celebrity gossip blog, has had an insane influx of fans over the past two years. Currently he serves close to 6,000,000 page views a week. Just to give you an idea, at 1 million page views a month agencies start to take you seriously. But being just another celebrity gossip blogger hasn't stopped him from taking over the game and making some nice pocket change in the meantime. Despite his elementary-style writing tactics, rudimentary grammar skills and lost attempts at being funny, Lavandeira has made a name for himself in not only the blogging world but has acheived the "Hey, isnt that the guy from ...." status.
