Three male customers of a Buckhead Waffle house were relieved of their iPhones and jewelry worth $40,000 during an armed robbery this morning.
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports the robbery took place at 6:30 a.m. at the 24-hour Waffle House on Piedmont Road north of Pharr Road, near Lenox Mall.
Actress Quvenzhané Wallis, 9, accepts the Best Young Actor/Actress Award for her breakout role as “Hush Puppy” in “Beasts of the Southern Wild” at the 18th Annual Critics’ Choice Movie Awards held at Barker Hangar on Thursday (January 10) in Santa Monica, California.
So yesterday I met up with an old friend who brought along her Louis Vuitton messenger bag to our lunch date. Inside the bag was her brand new iPad.
She happily told me she wasn’t following the crowd because she had resisted the initial onslaught of overhyped iPad ads for at least a month before she finally gave in after reading on my blog that her favorite singer Monica had an iPad. She said she loves it.
Me, on the other hand, I still have no use for an iPad. I already have a MacBook Pro (which I’m typing this post on) and a HTC smart phone, which I hate, but it serves my purposes when I want to browse the Internet while out & about.
I simply can’t see myself dragging that monster iPad out of a bag just to check the sports scores — unless I just want the people around me to see that I have an iPad — and I am not that vain.
US president Barack Obama probably feels the same way. He doesn’t own an iPad either.
Obama told the graduating class of Hampton University today (April 9) that the iPad is just another useless invention that will only lead them to distraction as they try to find work in a dismal job market.
Last week Apple CEO Steve Jobs bragged that his iPad sold over 1 million units. With over 300 million people in the US, I am not impressed.
Besides, that figure doesn’t include all the replacement iPads exchanged by clumsy owners who dropped and broke their first units.
Rap Diva Trina wanted the world to know that her reunion with former boyfriend Kenyon Martin was not a ploy to help promote her new album. So she packed him off to Atlanta yesterday to sit by her side while she signed CDs at DTLR sporting goods store in Camp Creek (a suburb of Atlanta).
This is how closely Trina monitors Kenyon’s every move like a hawk! My spies tell me that while Trina was signing autographs, Kenyon received a call on his iPhone. She immediately jumped up and demanded to see his phone. Once she was satisfied that the call was innocent, she resumed signing CDs.
