Apple Exec Fired Over iPhone 5 Maps App Failure

The Apple executive responsible for the colossal failure of Apple’s new Maps app was fired for reportedly refusing to apologize to Apple’s customers.

Scott Forstall convinced Apple execs to replace Google maps on the new iPhone 5 cell phone with his Apple Maps, which turned out to be a disaster.

Not soon after the iPhone 5 launched, consumers began reporting problems with Apple Maps. Well-known streets and even entire towns were left off of the Maps navigation. The app quickly became a target of late night talk show hosts.

Once again, Russell Simmons Defends Violence in Hip Hop

I was waiting for Hip Hop apologist Russell Simmons to defend the latest incidence of senseless violence in Hip Hop, and Russell did not disappoint. Simmons is always quick to defend rappers who commit assault, rape and other offenses. This time he used a woman to do his dirty work for him.

In an editorial published on Simmons’ blog Global Grind, Evanka Williamson defended Chicago rapper Lil Reese’s actions in a viral video that shows him brutally beating a young woman last year. Reese is also under investigation in the shooting death of 16-year-old Chicago rapper Lil Jojo.

It’s worth noting that Lil Reese did not apologize for his violent behavior until radio program directors and DJs threatened to boycott his records.

Last week a video surfaced online showing Chicago rapper Lil Reese and his GBE associates beating up a woman after barging their way inside her residence.

The year old video surfaced on World Star Hip Hop and instantly went viral, sparking outrage from social networking users who are normally immune to such violence against females.

Over the weekend, real men in Hip Hop stood up to denounce Reese’s girlish behavior. Atlanta “goons” called out Lil Reese for fighting a woman. And HOT 97 PD called Lil Reese a “b*tch” for “knuckling up with a girl.”

    Celeb Style: Beyonce = FAIL (AGAIN)

    Now I see why Beyawnce wears sheer hose on her legs to cover up those rug burns. Her pale shins were a sight to behold this morning when she walked out of the posh Harvey Nichols department store in London, England.

    All you Stans who ridiculed Bey for wearing panty hose, please leave her alone. Let her wear whatever she wants. Applying a little suntan lotion to those legs wouldn’t hurt either.

    By the way, her Louis Vuitton sandals look better in the LV store than they do on her feet.
