Carrier IQ: Your Phone's Secret Recording Device

Carrier IQ is a piece of software installed on millions of mobile phones that logs everything their users do, from what websites they browse to what their text messages say.

No, it's not part of some great Orwellian plot; it's a diagnostic tool that carriers say plays a crucial role in helping them assess and troubleshoot their networks. But the recording app, which flew under the radar for years until security researchers drew attention to it recently, is setting off red-alert privacy and security alarms.

It's also spotlighting how little customers -- and, sometimes, the carriers and manufacturers themselves -- know about what goes on under the hood of their data-stuffed mobile devices.

10 Common Patterns Of Faulty Thinking By Dr. David Burns

All-or-Nothing Thinking: Failing to recognize that there may be some middle ground. Characterized by absolute terms like always, never, and forever.

: Taking an isolated case and assuming that all others are the same.

Mental Filter: Mentally singling out the bad events in one's life and overlooking the positive.

Disqualifying the Positive: Treating positive events like they don't really count.

Jumping to Conclusions: Assuming the worst about a situation even though there is no evidence to back their conclusion.

Magnification and Minimization: Downplaying positive events while paying an inordinate amount of attention to negative ones.

Emotional Reasoning: Allowing your emotions to govern what you think about a situation rather than objectively looking at the facts.

Should Statements: Rigidly focusing on how you think things should be rather than finding strategies for dealing with how things are."

Labeling and Mislabeling: Applying false and harsh labels to oneself and others.

Personalization: Blaming yourself for things that are out of your control.

Crazy.... Watch The Throne!

Biascagne Cicli Scatto Fisso Bicycle

It’s not often that something of such high quality aligns itself with a great cause, but such is the case with the Scatto Fisso bicycle from Italian cycle shop Biascagne Cicli. Supported by a fresh from the grave Bottechia frame, the bike is fit with a slew of high-quality vintage parts that complement the over four decade old framework. But the best part about the cycle? All proceeds from the sale will go to Citta della Speranza, an association in Padua that supports research for children afflicted with one of the nastiest forms of cancer – leukemia. The eBay auction for the Scatto Fisso will run from Dec. 1 to Dec. 10, and with a starting bid of €222.22, every cent will take a step towards curing a dangerously fatal disease.

Scanomat Top Brewer

We've covered some minimalist coffee machines before, but damn. The Scanomat Top Brewer ($TBA) lurks underneath your kitchen counter or inside your island, using dual grinders to ensure your source is as fresh as possible, heating fresh water for every cup using a unique boiler system and cleaning itself automatically, all springing to life with a single tap on your iPhone. It takes just 15 seconds to deliver a cup of filtered coffee, 25 seconds for a shot of espresso, and likely even less time to empty your bank account.

Style Guy- Glenn O'Brien (Video)

First off, if you’re interested in menswear and don’t know who Glenn O’Brien is, shame on you. O’Brien has led an extremely interesting life, and his résumé includes some of the most influential publications out there. Some of you probably recognize him from his monthly column in GQ Magazine under the moniker “The Style Guy,” where O’Brien dishes out valuable (and often humorous) advice on reader’s sartorial conundrums. If you haven’t already, I also highly recommend giving his book “How To Be a Man” a read. It’s the kind of thing that someday you’ll pass down to your son.

Check out this video with StyleLikeU below to learn a little bit more about O’Brien’s life:

The Beverly Hills Hotel - Marilyn Monroe Slept Here

This is the place you want to call home when you are in Beverly Hills, CA.

When I first arrived in LA, my friends and I used to frequent this hotel. The restaurant (The Polo Lounge) is amazing and old Hollywood smooth. Bar 1912 has gotten real quiet but is so classy. As soon as you walk on to the property you can feel and see the history before your eyes.

Great article...

Back in the days when celebrity was worn with the elegance and grace of diamonds and mink, the Beverly Hills Hotel was where the stars played. W.C. Fields, Humphrey Bogart and the Rat Pack tippled at the bar, Katharine Hepburn did a back flip into the pool in her tennis clothes, and Elizabeth Taylor honeymooned in the bungalows out back -- six times.

The Beverly Hills Hotel, known affectionately as "the pink palace," is as Old Hollywood as it gets. Joan Crawford regularly pulled up for lunch in a chauffeured Rolls Royce the color of money, the Beatles slipped in through the back door for an after-hours dip in the pool, and Sidney Poitier danced barefoot in the lobby after winning an Oscar for "Lilies of the Field."

Svend Petersen, who ran the pool for 42 years and still serves as the hotel's official ambassador, knew them all: Cary Grant, Lucille Ball, the Kennedys, Esther Williams, Johnny Carson, Merv Griffin, Carol Burnett, Ingrid Bergman, Princess Grace, Marilyn Monroe.

Glass Multi-Touch Keyboard And Mouse

Glass always makes things look classy and expensive right? Well soon you might be able to purchase a keyboard and mouse made out of glass. Minimalism is the thing right now and this product ticks that box. The glass multi-touch keyboard and mouse uses touchscreen technology like most new smartphones out there. With open source software the glass is able to track your fingers and where you tap on the glass. It has bluetooth support, a rechargeable battery and a metal base to keep it rigid on your desk.

It is a kickstarter project. If you like the idea and look of this you can pledge your own cash to help develop the business behind the product. If you give $350 or more you will get a keyboard and mouse when it hits production lines.

Donatella Versace Talks Biggie Smalls

Donatella Versace Talks Biggie Smalls

For the December/January 2011-12 edition of Interview Magazine, Nicki Minaj sat down with Donatella Versace to talk about one of the brand’s biggest supporters – Biggie Smalls. Known for dropping the brand’s name in several iconic verses, it seemed only apropos for Versace to speak about the iconic emcee. Check out a choice excerpt below and be sure to pick up a copy of Interview when it hits newsstands.
I think Biggie was amazing. He came to my shows in Paris many times, and we’d see each other often. He always used to talk so nicely about my family. I think he was so smart, so intelligent. He had such a mind. So I loved what he was doing and how he was giving people a way to know about Versace—I do think he was giving people a way to know about Versace—I do think a lot of people started to know about Versace because of him.

Athletes, Models: Who Is Tougher?

Oscar Smith is a member of the NYPD's elite search-and-rescue scuba team who doubles in his spare time as a fitness trainer to celebrities. For years now, he's pushed models through frog jumps and flutter kicks and lateral raises.
Then, three summers ago, New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady came knocking at his small TriBeCa gym.
A few sessions in, Smith says, Brady—the two-time Super Bowl MVP—offered maybe the highest praise he's ever gotten. Brady looked at the native New Yorker and said, "I think you're going to make me puke."

"Oh, we're definitely tougher than athletes," said Anna Jagodzinska, a face of Tommy Hilfiger and one of the world's most-requested models. "If Oscar put me through a workout next to a football player, definitely yes I could be tougher."
