With Windows Phone 7 coming before the end of the year, it’s not unreasonable to think Microsoft wouldn’t go about releasing new apps on competing platforms. That doesn’t seem to be stopping the company, however, as it has now launched a Bing app for Android.
OMG exciting alert – J.Crew plans to put its outlet store clothing up for sale online starting next month! You know what that means: no more driving to out of the way shopping centers and strip malls to score J.Crew cheapies.
First Gerard Butler is picked up by L’Oreal to convince men that they’re worth it, now comes news that football player Troy Polamalu has had his 35″ long hair insured for $1 million by Head and Shoulders (Polamalu is a spokesperson for the brand). To give you a little perspective on how much more valuable Polamalu is with a follicle to follicle comparison, a pack of 16″ long human hair sells for $70 on Amazon. If you went hair crazy and covered your hair with 20 of those, it would add up to $2800 – or about 3% of what Troy Polamalu’s hair is worth.
You probably won’t find the longest catwalk in the world or the Olsen twins bartending or even a street party avec Rag & Bone but you will see is a roster of talented, up and coming designers, steadily gaining credibility in one of the world’s largest emerging luxury markets.
Fashion’s Night Out was started as a global initiative last year, in the throes of the bleak economic scene to get people out of their houses and pulling out their wallets to give the economy some retail therapy. I was pleasantly surprised that it was held in New Delhi, India as one of the 15 worldwide locations.

These are some of the participating designers I feel show the most promise:
Ok, so leggings are are great and all but they are morphing out of control! Most women know that the comfort and functionality of leggings are great for most activities from working to working out, which could explain why they have remained so popular and worn by almost everyone with every body type.
After the leggings boom a few months back, along came jeggings. They’re the weird cross between jeans and leggings. They haven’t taken off quite like good ol’ leggings, but companies like H&M don’t want to stop trying.
The city of brotherly love isn’t so loving towards blogging brothers (or sisters). A number of Philadelphia bloggers were recently slapped with a demand for $300 to pay for a business privilege license. The license fee, which in several cases exceeds what the bloggers have earned in revenue, is accompanied by demands for wage tax, business privilege tax and net profit tax.
This is why you shouldn’t take any relationship rumors seriously until there’s a Facebook status update to confirm.
Earlier today rappers Drake and Nicki Minaj sent fans into a tizzy looking for more information about a tweeted matrimonial announcement.
Facebook already owns the trademark for their name, but for many outsiders their legal department is getting a bit too aggressive in defending it.
On September 1, Steve Jobs will take the stage at an Apple event to announce new iPods. How do we know? Because Apple is clearing out stock of existing models with its annual back-to-school sale, and the invite sent to bloggers has a guitar with an Apple-shaped hole in it. Oh, and there’s also the pattern of new iPods always being announced around this time.
