Britney Spears out of shape?!?

I was reading this Associated Press article earlier:

An out-of-shape, out-of-touch Britney Spears delivered what was destined to be the most talked-about performance of the MTV Video Music Awards — but for all the wrong reasons. […] And, perhaps most unforgivable given her once-taut frame, she looked embarrassingly out of shape.

I have one thing to say to Associated Press & CNN who carried the article: GET A CLUE.

I am by no means a Spears fan (she seems to have an IQ of 50, just like her friends Lindsay and Paris). But calling her body out of shape, is preposterous. Look at her body, of that mother of two, once more, carefully. That’s not an out of shape body. That’s a NORMAL body. Not thin, but normal. Since when “normal” is a negative term? If only 1/3 of the women were like that the world would have been a healthier place.

I demand that the journalist who wrote that trash publicly apologizes.

Apple already sick of the cellphone industry?

I haven’t been privy to the private conversations of Steve Jobs, but listening to his keynote the other day, it’s difficult not to pick up on at least some antipathy the man seems to hold towards the entire mobile phone industry”, writes Crunchgear.

Well, is it possible to actually like the cellphone industry? I think not, especially in the US. I hope that Apple introduces its own VoIP service (to be used with the iPod Touch and unlocked iPhones) after they get that 5% in the cellphone industry, and then the ONLY customization they should accept to do for the carriers is to leave on or remove that VoIP engine. For everything else, they should not be dictated by anyone what and how to do things. If the carriers don’t like it, let them not use Apple’s phones.
