Britney Spears: Audio Recording a Fake

Posted by K.C. Morgan Categories: Music, Legal Issues, Rumors,

Britney Spears, Jason TrawickUPDATE: You can read Britney's Twitter response here.

Radar Online is offering exclusive audio of what is purportedly a conversation between pop princess Britney Spears and her husband for one day Jason Alexander (not the Seinfeld actor; different guy).

In it, “Britney” says that current boyfriend has been beating her. In one memorable moment, the woman on the tape says her father has a “shotgun … and he’s just waiting to use it.”

Waiting for what? In any event, Alexander talked about this and much more with Star magazine, saying that Britney’s life has “turned into a nightmare."

But the Spears camp says no way. They are categorically denying the audio clip, telling TMZ it is “so obviously fake as to be laughable.”

“Suffice it to say, Jason Trawick has never laid a hand on Britney [Spears],” they said in a prepared statement.

LISTEN: CNN’s Rick Sanchez Calls Jon Stewart a Bigot, Gets Fired


UPDATE: You can see Stewart’s response here.

One day after calling Daily Show host “a bigot” on a radio program, CNN’s Rick Sanchez received some (not so) surprising words of his own: “You’re fired.”

The Cuban-American anchor, who has been the subject of Stewart’s jokes before, made that accusation about the Comedy Central personality while speaking on SiriusXM’s Stand Up! With Peter Dominick yesterday morning.

So which group(s) does Rick think Jon is bigoted against? “Anybody who’s different than you are, anybody who’s not form your frame of reference; anybody who doesn’t look and sound exactly like the people that you sound [like] and grew up with. The people that you put on your show, who always reflects somebody who’s, ‘I’m bringing in to sit around me,’ you know, who’s very different from me. I’m sorry, but I just don’t buy this thing that the only people out there who are prejudiced … are the right. There’s people that are prejudiced on both sides.”

We now know why comedian and radio personality Artie Lange was hospitalized over the weekend. Unfortunately, it’s a situation Howard Stern was hoping he would never have to discuss.

According to a report by the New York Post, the former MADtv star attempted suicide by stabbing himself nine times over the weekend. It was his mother, who was stopping by to drop off some food, who found him in his Hoboken apartment.

Although Lange’s family and friends hoped to keep the issue private, some “scumbag” leaked the info to the press. This forced a “pissed off” Stern - who struggled to find the right words - to address the news about his sidekick today.

Tivoli introduces new iPAL - now available in yellow

Posted by Finnian Durkan Categories: Design, Home Entertainment, Music,

Tivoli iPALI love listening to my . Everywhere I go, I have it plugged in - on the road, in my car, on the bus, at work; everywhere.  But no matter how much I love having all of my audio/visual media right at my fingertips, there has always been one thing that has bothered me about iPods and all of their associated paraphernalia - they all look the same. 

They all resemble something that Eero Saarinen carved out of a block of plastic, polished to a shine, and made available to the public.  This is all well and good if you have a condo chock-full of Jetsons furniture, eschewing any and all hard lines in favor of the Apple standard of soft eggshell curved products.  I, on the other hand, am a pretty typical guy and have a living space peppered with very angular, semi-broken furniture and accoutrements that make a proto-futuristic iPod docking station look a tad out of place.

Enter Tivoli’s iPAL docking station.  Resembling something that would be right at home on a WWII submarine or knocking around in the jungle on a National Geographic expedition; it is the perfect addition to my jumbled, yet spartan living situation.  Stacked next to my hotplate and the Zenith TV that I use as the base for my coffee table, it looks perfectly natural - like it was meant to be there.  Despite its rugged and retro appearance, it offers amazing sound quality, and also comes with an AM/FM auto-tuner and a NiMH battery pack that recharges in three hours and offers 16 hours of continuous play.

While its price, at $274.04 (192.40 Euro) makes it far more expensive than any of the rest of my furniture, it still looks mighty fine sitting atop my bookshelf made of cinder-blocks and 2x4’s.

Sonos announces the Sonos Controller 200 CR200 touchscreen remote

Sonos Controller 200 CR200

We’ve been waiting on this for a long, long time, and we are happy to share the news that Sonos has officially announced the Sonos Controller 200 CR200 remote. Why is this news to be excited about? Well, if you’re a Sonos owner (or a potential owner,) this means that you get a touchscreen Sonos remote, rather than the old-school click wheel version of the remote. Like the rest of the Sonos gear, this will work anywhere in the home, is meant to be a shared device that can be left in a common area, is more intuitive, turns on instantly when picked up, and has a nice capacitive VGA touchscreen. It even has a replaceable battery. The only thing that the old remote has that this new one doesn’t is that the new one isn’t water-resistant and splash proof. The Sonos CR200 goes on sale tomorrow, and will sell for $349, $50 less than the older model. Even better, the Sonos Controller 100 will be heavily discounted until they are sold out, so if you do want a splash-proof Sonos Controller that you can take to the hot tub, now’s your chance.

We’ve played with the new remote (video coming shortly!) and we can very easily recommend it - it makes finding music from the vast number of libraries and services that Sonos can connect to a breeze, because when you have that much music, a clickwheel just won’t measure up. Be sure to check out our Sonos Controller 200 gallery for a bunch of images of the new remote.
