*A man has legally changed his name to iPhone 7 in order to win a new iPhone.

The former Olexander Turin, 20, of Ukraine met a challenge extended by an electronics store: the first five people to change their names to “iPhone 7” would receive a free device.  The former Mr. Turin was first to do so.  His new name is iPhone Sim.  (“Sim” means “seven” in Ukrainian.)

Meet iPhone 7

It was certainly a financial coup for the Sim:  a brand new iPhone 7 starts at the equivalent of $850 US in Ukraine, while the name change set him back the equivalent of just $2!

Sim says he may change his name back to his birth name when he has children. Continue reading

*Well, we know folks are having a hard time letting go when it comes to President Obama. We’ve got, let’s see, today is the 13th…that’s makes 23 more days before we vote for a new POTUS. To say a lot of us will be participating in “the ugly cry” while bidding a fond adieu to the finest First Family we have ever known is an understatement.

Thanks to a company called Moreno BHLV, at least we won’t have to be thirsty while the salty tears flow. The beverage company has produced something we can remember America’s first Black President by…

Bottled water. Continue reading

loreal-perm

*Uh oh. It’s stories like this that makes me celebrate the fact that I went au natural nearly a decade ago. For the life of me though, with several proven Black hair care companies and products by them out there, I don’t even know why folks would trust a company like L’Oréal when trying to perm Black hair.

But oh well. I guess it’s a personal thing, and so is the lesson learned.

Softsheen-Carson Optimum Amla Legend No-Mix, No-Lye Relaxer is what the highly recognized French cosmetics company touted — and apparently used a wealth of celebrities (even insinuating Michelle Obama was one of ’em) to encourage folks to use the product. At least according to what TMZ claims was the motivation behind a new, class action lawsuit by some angry consumers.

Those same consumers are say they are now BALD after using the product!

And guess who they got to represent them? Famed attorney Mark Geragos, who made a name for himself representing celebrities like Michael Jackson. Continue reading

*I’ve always been on #TeamSuperman, but ever since Adam West jumped in the 1960s-era Batmobile and said “Atomic batteries to power! Turbines to speed!” followed by Burt Ward’s “Roger!  Ready to move out!” I’ve wanted one of Batman’s vehicles.

Hell, I won’t front:  I’d have jumped on Batgirl’s cycle if given half a chance.  

Now I can have one of those Bat-toys!  

The Batpod was the only thing left from the destroyed Batmobile in Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight, and one of the bikes used in that flick and the follow-up The Dark Knight Rises is up for auction.  

The bike features fiberglass body panels, a custom-made chassis, 31-inch Hoosier tires, and a Honda 750 engine.  It also features a laser-targeting unit and (sadly) non-functioning cannons. Continue reading

*While many people are just now beginning to even trust riding in a car driven by a stranger, and are now getting pulled in by the convenience of rideshare services such as Uber and Lyft, something new and different is now being thrown in the mix.

The rideshare service with NO ONE in the driver’s seat!

You heard it right, our dear friends at Uber have decided to kick it up a notch and introduce its first self-driving automobile to pick you up and take you on your way.

Hey, Uber is a business. And what do businesses do? Businesses focus on the bottom line and try to eliminate expenses and make profits.

So although Uber has more than a gaZILLION drivers on the road, bringing their 2016 cash revenue — as in “how much do you have in the bank, homie?” to a staggering $4.1 BILLION according to Business Insider, it appears the company is now working towards eliminating the expense called human drivers.

First stop to test this innovative move: Pittsburgh! Continue reading

*Simone Biles is bringing home mucho oro from the Olympics in Rio…

(that’s “a lot of gold”…thank you, Rosetta Stone!)

…but Uncle Sam will be expecting his cut after she gets back.

I guess I should have known. Lottery winners often pay hefty taxes on cash prizes. But I guess I figured that after athletes like Biles gave their blood, sweat and tears to beat out every other athlete in the world in their sport of choice, the US government could give them a break on the tax bill.

Nope.

It seems that in addition to the gold, silver, and bronze medals awarded to Olympians, cash awards are also dispensed. Big ones: $25,000 for gold medals, $15,000 for silvers, and $10,000 for bronze ones.

With maximum taxes that look like this…
