Beginning today, all cell phone numbers will be released to telemarketers. If you’re like me and you don’t answer your phone unless you recognize the number, it won’t affect you.
But to those of you who jump to answer every call – get ready to be besieged by telemarketers hawking everything under the sun!
The Federal Trade Commission has set up a National Do Not Call Registry where you can add your cell number to a Do Not Call list. You must call from the cell phone that you are registering. The number is 1-888 382-1222 or visit Donotcall.gov.
Endgadget.com reports that a line 60-deep has formed outside the NYC flagship Apple store today. Was there a cool new gadget released that I didn’t hear about? No, apparently these dummies have been standing on line for hours to be the first to purchase an iPhone.
Yes, I know we’ve been through this madness already. But this is a new 3G iPhone. Whatever that means.
I am proud to say I never succumbed to peer pressure to buy an overpriced iPhone because I am in complete control of my mental faculties and common sense.

Poor Usher must be losing it. The singer visited The Ellen Degeneres Show today and he seemed totally clueless to the fact that he and baby mama Tameka Foster have separated. Between showing Ellen his tired dance moves Usher said this about certain entities dissing his marriage:
“The opinion is that maybe this wife has come in and torn something down … she’s built it up even more now the foundation of who and what I am is even more. This stands for more what I want to see more of … I want to see more men standing with their women. I want to see more men be open and honest about where they are in life and that’s a lot of what I chose to talk about in my music not necessarily just about my relationship just about being vulnerable being honest … that’s the reality.” (Source)

When NBA legend Magic Johnson announced he had contracted HIV, many fans began to mourn his imminent death. But Magic has astounded the medical community by outliving his life expectancy.
Today, Magic Johnson’s HIV viral load is undetectable in his blood stream.
How did he do it? By fighting the infection naturally with a supplement called Natrol.
According to Naturally Yours, an organic natural health blog, Natrol is an extract from the stumps of larch trees, which grow in Central Europe, North America and parts of Russia.
Natrol, which is marketed in the states as My Defense, is used as dietary fiber in food and drinks. But according to the manufacturer, it contains an ingredient called ImmunEnhancer which the manufacturer claims “can improve the body’s immune system”.
Whether such claims can be proven remains to be seen. While there is no cure for HIV, Magic says the supplement has improved his quality of life and he swears by it.
