Get the latest buzz on popular culture. I’m talking music, books, movies and so much more! Nothing says hip like a guy/gal in the know.

A Tablet A Day

PhotobucketWho needs to pop pills when you can get a savvier form of satisfaction? In an age where technology and innovation is absolutely necessary, maybe it’s about time you grab yourself this useful electronic device: the tablet.

Problem is, there’s actually so much to choose from! From Apple to Motorolla to HP to Dell, there’s bound to be one that will fit your personality to a tee. Allow moi to help you decide. After all, research, my darlings, is everything!

According to this article from CNET, these are the 5 tablets to look out for. But which one is the one for you?

Motorola Xoom

For the power-driven boss. Are you all for the best there is out there? The Motorola Xoom ups the ante by providing the Apple’s iPad with the best competition out there.

The downside? You better be ready to break that credit limit (or a bank if you’re daring enough) because this thing doesn’t come cheap at $600 .

Apple iPad 2

For the artsy hipster. Revamped to counter the numerous cons of the original version (lack of rear cameras and integrated HD video output), this improved version will get you the loathing jealous stares you love to drown in — or not.

The con? Despite the thinner built, two words for Mr. Steve: still bulky.

Samsung Galaxy Tab

For Mr. Practical. Lightweight and with an emphasis on portable, Samsung Galaxy Tab has superb design and features under its (digital) belt that is a worthy contender of the iPad.

Truth of the matter is, the Tab may just be a glorified phone instead of a “Netbook alternative” that it was designed to be.

Dell Streak 7

For the individual. This baby boasts of 4G technology as compared to the 3G everyone else has.

Other than that, the Streak may not be anything special especially with the surge of Androids the industry is expecting.

Barnes and Noble Nook Color

For the literature major. The Nook may just be the best e-book reader out there with its colorful interface. Plus, it’s half the price of an iPad!

On the other hand, this gadget needs more apps and definitely a better app store!

Who You Gonna Call?

PhotobucketHola, readers! It’s time for another round of tuning-up.

If, like me, every week seems like the proverbial hell week, then maybe you’re in need of a little saving? The answer: suits and spandex!

Comedian Seth Rogen is the Green Hornet. It's been out since last month and I've been getting a lot of mixed reviews.

Chris Evans keeps it steamy as Captain America.

His royal hunkness Ryan Reynolds is set to take on the role of Green Lantern this year!

Chris Hemsworth plays the role of the powerful Thor. Plus points over the fact that the exquisite Natalie Portman plays his love interest!

X-Men: First Class. This X-Men film is a prequel to the last three movies and is sure to be anything but a flop. James McAvoy (Atonement) stars as the younger version of Professor X and Michael Fassbender as the young Magneto.

Ryan Reynolds adds another superhero in his characters-to-play list. Deadpool is a spin-off from the movie X-Men Origins: Wolverine (with Hugh Jackman as the lead role).

Looks like Marvel’s on a role this year, and I’m loving every minute of it!


P.S. I hear the gorgeous Anne Hathaway is playing the Catwoman for the next installment of Dark Knight and I hope she brings on her fierce A game!
