Techie Whispers: Key Chain Phone Charger

Scosche FlipSYNC II Keychain Charger ($8.17-$14.99)

Who hasn’t lost their charging cable at some point? The Scosche keychain charger stays with your keys, so you always know where it is. And its compact design means that there are no wires strewn everywhere, except when your smartphone is charging. You can even sync your iPhone through it.

I thought this was is a very good idea.

Da Brat Gets Glam in Vibe Photo Shoot + Interview

Posted July 25, 2011 2:39 PM By Deirdre B Pride

What type of message do you want to portray to women about their bodies.

Be who you are!

What is your favorite body part?

I don’t have just one. I love all parts of my body! But on a man, I love the Adonis line. It’s just so sexy!

What type of clothes do you wear to make you look sexy?

It depends on the look and how I’m feeling that day.

Was it uncomfortable transitioning into a “sex symbol” or is this just another side of you that we never see?

I’m such a f*cking lady. I loved to get glammed up. I love manis and pedis. I like to go to Vicky Secrets and La Perla because I like lace and bikinis. I’m such a P.Y.T. (Pretty Young Thug)

How did you feel about the Vibe.com photo shoot?

I absolutely loved it! The stylist Tamara Connor was amazing. Mara Z styled my hair with the help of her assistant Dina as well as my regular hairstylist, Shontelle Sampeur. Mara also did my makeup. Both hair and make-up were great. And I loved the photographer, Alex. I definitely want to do more photo shoots with him because I can tell he is passionate about his work.

What do you have to say about your new mixtape?

It’s DUMB STUPID CRAZY! It’s HOTTER THAN A MOTHER F*CKER! BRAT IS BACK!

Sound like they are trying to make an example out of her.  She was reckless, but she’s no criminal and doesn’t need to go to jail.  I think she suffered enough. The drunk that killed her son served a mere 6 months.  I wonder what would he have gotten if she had crossed in the crosswalk.

A Marietta, Ga., mom who was convicted of jaywalking after her 4-year-old son was run over and killed in a hit-and-run said on the Today Show that the worst part of going to jail would be the separation from her two remaining kids.

Raquel Nelson was convicted of homicide by vehicle and reckless conduct by a jury and faces sentencing tomorrow. She can receive up to a three-year jail sentence, six times the stretch that Jerry Guy–who admitted to drinking before running over Nelson’s son, A.J.–served.

“I think to come after me so much harder than they did him is a slap in the face because this will never end for me,” she said. “It’s three years away from the two that I have left.”

 Nelson also said that the jury had “never been in my shoes,” because each of them answered that they had never taken public transportation before. Nelson, who doesn’t have a car, was three-tenths of a mile away from the nearest crosswalk when her bus dropped her off at the stop across the street from her apartment with her three children. She decided to cross with her kids rather than remain outside any later at night, she said. (You can read more about her case here.)

“We are just hoping as a family that [the judge] is compassionate and lets my niece remain with her other children,” Nelson’s aunt Loretta Williams said.

Ron Artest Reveals That He Has Been Divorced Since 2009

Well that would certainly explain some things.   He had bee been  showing up at various event with some lady who wasn’t his wife.

We’ve been wondering why L.A. Lakers star Ron Artest hasn’t taken his wife along when he’s out on the town, and now we know why … he doesn’t have one!
We found out Ron quietly got divorced from Kimsha on June 30, 2009.  The couple shares joint custody of their 3 kids and their relationship is extremely amicable — we’re told they get along better than when they were married.

The couple married in 2003.  Kimesha will be appearing on the first installment of Real Housewives of LA.

Lauryn Hill has welcomed another member to her clan of kids. The 36-year-old ex-Fugee gave birth to a baby boy on Saturday with longtime boyfriend Rohan Marley by her side.

It’s said the Lauren “had a little scare because the baby came out the womb with the umbilical cord wrapped around his neck.” But no need for worry. “All is well now and everyone is happy,” Lauren and Rohan have had five other children together.

 

Off topic: Rohan took to twitter to deny leaving Lauren for Brazilian Model, Isabeli Fontana.
