Again, this is another review that is a long time coming and I promise it’s worth the wait! Cheri over at Orglamix was kind enough to send me some samples of her eyeshadows to review for the Little Pink Book PR and they’re lovely!

Unlike a lot of previous mineral makeup reviews — considering the crazy stories running around the internet — this review is segmented and broken down into more categories. I hope you find it helpful 🙂

Voices Soft, Words Inviting: Going Digital Won’t Be the Death of Print

My books 🙂

“And their voices were soft,
And their words inviting…

I dreamed a dream in time gone by,
When hope was high and life, worth living.
I dreamed that love would never die…”

РLes Mis̩rables

I love books.

I blog about them and I think words are these powerful objects that make the world turn around and around.

When I blogged about the e-book being the death of print, a little piece of me died inside. When I tweeted and tweeted about how amazing the new Nook from Barnes & Noble was looking, a little bit more of me died inside and then I read “Beyond Borders: The Future Of Bookselling” and I felt like I got a little bit of my own back.

I concur; I support; I most certainly agree – shopping for books is like shopping for a good husband or that snug fitting dress to make the opposite sex’s jaw drop. It takes time, patience, concentration and yes, you’ll know it when [Read more…]

Review of the Nokia n900 Mobile Computing Device

Image via Amazon.com

By: Billy Garcia, guest blogger

I received my brand new Nokia n900 on November 25th (pre-ordered on September 13th) and have been using it daily ever since.  I have also previously owned and still use the Nokia n810 internet tablet (no phone function), which I ended up using mostly as a GPS device and to make Skype calls.

I believe that a distinction needs to be made on what type of device the n900 actually is. I would prefer to refer to it as a “Mobile Computing Device” that is also quad band GSM and 3G capable cell phone. It literally is a desktop computer in the palm of your hand. I don’t agree with comparisons made with other types of carrier based phone devices, which I will explain later. A better comparison may be made with the Apple iPhone 3GS. See this article http://bit.ly/M9tgZ

Before actually receiving the n900 I thought it would be rather bulky and cumbersome to carry around because of the slide out keyboard. It’s about the same size as the iPhone but a little thicker. But after having had it and using for a week it’s not as big or bulky as I first imagined, so that’s a plus.

As I said earlier this is a “Mobile Computing Device” and has what I would call three operating contexts or modes of use. They are “Application Mode”, “Dashboard Mode” and “Desktop Mode”.

Each mode or context can be accessed [Read more…]

Advertising Battle: Nudity, Catholicism & PETA

Joanna Krupa’s latest advert for PETA has the Catholic Church in a high rolling spin of naked proportions…and apparently some very misguided ones too.

The President of the Catholic League [Read more…]

To Tweet or Not to Tweet…At YOUR Wedding

Yesterday, I came across this post on Mashable by Jennifer Van Grove called “Just Married: Groom Changes Facebook Relationship Status At Altar.” The article was about a groom who changed his relationship status on Facebook, during his wedding, before he kissed his bride.

In the comments area of the post, opinions seemed to differ. I had no idea some people were so passionate (or passionate and immature, depending on your take) about the subject.

Personally, I do not agree with doing this. Perhaps, it’s because I’m more traditional  in that sense. But [Read more…]

ThanksWOODSing.

Eh, maybe not.

But anyway, Thanksgiving 2009 will be remembered as that special time you shared with your loved ones… and also that special time in which one of the world’s most famous athletes had a tremendous fender-bender.

His public relations people must be working overtime. I do hope they are getting paid handsomely for this because I foresee this “mere,” not so “serious” accident blowing up in someone’s face soon.

Reports surfaced early Friday morning, November 27, around 2:25 a.m. ET that golfer and top international athlete, Tiger Woods, was involved in a “serious” accident. It was reported that he had cuts on his face and he was going in and out of consciousness.

Florida Highway Patrol (FHP) is required to report [Read more…]
