Al Gore expects more than one iPhone to be released next month

Al Gore Apple

It appears that Apple board member and former Vice President Al Gore just slipped that multiple iPhones were coming out in October, according to reports.

"Not to mention the new iPhones coming out next month. That was a plug," Gore said at the Discovery Invest Leadership Summit in South Africa, as picked up by the The Next Web and CNET.

Yes, Gore said "phones," plural. Is Apple planning to release more than one new iPhone? it's certainly possible: All year long, there have been unconfirmed reports that Apple will release an iPhone 5 and an iPhone 4 "plus", a cheaper, smaller version of the current iPhone with only minor upgrades. How would a low-end iPhone fit into Apple's strategy? It could be an attempt to ward off Android and gain smartphone market share in other parts of the world.

Al Gore and Tipper Gore announce separation

Posted by Dennis Velasco Categories: Editorials,

Description

Former Vice President, Al Gore, and wife of 40 years, Tipper Gore, sent out an e-mail to family friends announcing their separation - “We are announcing today that after a great deal of thought and discussion, we have decided to separate.”  Forty years is a long time to be married and major props should be given to the couple as living a political lifestyle is not an easy life to live.  Look at all the scandals of infidelity and closeted sexual orientation that have reached the headlines in the recent past.  And the thing about the Gores, never seemed to be putting on a show for the cameras, the 2000 election campaign excepted.  In any case, it’s always a sad day when couples that have been together for so long decide to move on separately.  Good luck to both, but the question remains, “Who gets the internet?” (QUEUE: rim shot).

Global Cooling

Global Warming

Why do people believe politicians when they talk about things other than politics? Why are the only scientists that say the earth is warming, the only ones getting government grants? I wish people would realize that this “Global Warming” is nothing more than a scam to collect more taxes.

Don’t Count Out Recount

Posted by K.C. Morgan Categories: Drama, Cable, HBO, Gossip,

Recount From the first trailer, I was intrigued. In the next moment, I was checking the upcoming TV schedule to be 100% sure my DVR would capture the movie at the first possible opportunity. And I’ve got to tell you, I just can’t wait to watch ’s Recount.

I had the dubious pleasure of living through the 2000 presidential election - and all the many, many television hours this momentous and highly historical race entailed. Every four years in November, we as a nation go forth to various polling locations to exercise our Constitution-given Democratic freedoms. But on the evening of November 7, 2000 most people went to sleep without knowing just who the hell the President of the United States would be. But eventually, the decision was made…and so was history. The eight years that followed were rife with events which could keep Hollywood script writers busy for the whole of the century. It was a defining moment, it was the catalyst which undoubtedly led to two earth-shattering wars, and it is still something which (at least, for me) remains shrouded in mystery.

No longer will this remain the case…perhaps. The HBO film Recount will take us back to the past, but what sort of picture will this flick paint?

Why is Saving the Planet Suddenly In?

Posted by Sheila Franklin Categories: Editorial, Science,

Mother Earth 2

Explain this to us. Why did nobody pay attention to us in the 70’s when we tried to save the planet by recycling, planting organic veggies, learning from the Mother Earth News (when it was only available in paper,) and only having enough children to replace ourselves? Why does Wal-mart televise commercials saying we should each purchase energy-saving light bulbs and other gadgets when the company could easily afford to give each of us one? Why did it take Al Gore to make conservation viable and Ed Begley Jr. not a caricature? Why is this the first Earth Day that was made an issue of? Is it the Internet responsible? What do you think, Gear Livers?

 


NBC ‘Green Week’: An Opinion

NBC's 'Green Week' sucks a big oneOk, I’m all for saving the world, cleaning up the air and preventing whatever horrible fate Al Gore has decided awaits us in the coming decades - but this NBC “Green Week” is absolutely awful. In a week that has seen this huge writer strike, it would seem to me that network television needs every spark it can possibly get. What did NBC deliver instead? The guy from Windtalkers (now on Law & Order: SVU) telling me to recycle a pizza box … before he almost gets blown up by the bomb inside.

Oh, but the tree-hugging horror doesn’t stop there. Follow me after the jump to take a look at some of the other cringe-inducing moments from “Green Week.”

Al Gore Wins Oscar for “Inconvenient Truth”

Al Gore

Okay, so Al Gore didn’t personally win. But “AIT”’s (as the crew refers to it) director Davis Guggenheim brought the man who proclaims “he used to be the next president of the U.S.” up on the stage with him because he is truly the man behind the movie. Gore has always been interested in the subject of global warming and during his vice-presidential years used his term to draw attention to that and other environmental issues. This leads us to the political question: In the race against Queen Hillary and Prince Obama, can “The Goracle” become our next

King

President? We hope he will just continue to aid our planet.

The 2007 Academy Awards: Live Commentary

Academy Award Welcome to our live coverage of the 79th Annual Academy Awards!  During our live-blog of the 2006 Oscars, I made what may now be considered an eerie prediction about Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Phillippe:

“For some reason, I keep getting this nagging feeling that their relationship will dissolve sometime soon, but that discussion is for another post.”

I’d like to say that I’m psychic (if so, that Oscars pool at work is all mine)...but I’m going to have to chalk it up to nagging intuition.  What is that little voice inside me saying this year?  While some races may have been locked up months ago (I’m talking to you, Helen Mirren), there will be a shocker this year.  I can’t pinpoint the category, but I think it will be come riding in on a big yellow bus…

To find out who will be going hog-wild tonight during the Year of the Pig, stay tuned here for the live results!
