It’s not really like celebrities need a new name in order to present themselves in a crazier/sexier/cooler way, but there are plenty of stars who much prefer to let it all hang out under a different persona.

Soon Google Will No Longer Sell The HTC Nexus One

leave a comment »

Apparently, the very last shipments of the popular phone that has somewhat led the way in the Android phone game will go the way of the do do bird as Google makes way for the next generation of Google Android phones and mobile devices. So does this mean we will see a Google HTC Nexus Two? Perhaps…

The good thing is that all costomer service and support will still be offered and available to to all current Nexus One heads.

Are you still debating getting yourself a Nexus One? If so, you may want to make up your mind pretty quick. Google has announced that it has taken in it’s final shipment of Nexus One’s from HTC, and there’s no turning back to please indecisive consumers.
They have also mentioned that they will be closing their web store, http://google.com/phone . According to Google’s Nexus One blog: Earlier this year, we announced that we will be  closing the Nexus One web store .
Customer support will still be available for current Nexus One customers. Good to know support will still be available, but it will only be a matter of time until that goes as well.

Financial Elite Abandoning America At Alarming Rate

leave a comment »

clipped from www.survivalistnews.com

Like rats abandoning a sinking ship the global elite are writing off their American investments and fleeing the country at an increasing pace. As upper class wealth exploded over the past several years working Americans have been driven into poverty and their retirements destroyed. Fearing a backlash from the economic disaster they created most are leaving their gated communities for stable countries oversees where they are safe from angry mobs and prosecution.

Obviously the United States is not recovering from the recent economic downturn and is in fact falling deeper into a depression that will only end when the public accepts their third world status and the well crafted end of the American empire.

the rich have stopped paying the mortgage at a rate that greatly exceeds the rest of the population.
purposely dumping their financially draining properties, just as they would any sour investment.
“The rich are different: they are more ruthless,”

How Salt Will Turn Your Cheaper Cut of Beef Into Buttah

leave a comment »

I can not wait to try this out. Apparently the salt draws all of the moisture out and effectively ages it like a steak house steak.

If you are a steak-lover, I hope that the title of this post + luscious photo is enticing enough for you to read though the entire article. Because I promise you that it’s worth it. Even if you don’t eat steak, this is a must-read…as you can impress the hell outta your carnivorean friends. (and sometimes, when you’re a vegetarian in a herd of carnivores…it would just be nice to have that extra, “dude….you didn’t know that about steak???!” in your pocket.)

Do you know the joy of buying Choice and eating Prime? It’s like buying a Hyundai and getting a free mail-in rebate for a BMW upgrade!!!

Steak Recipe: Massively salt your steaks 15 min – 1 hour before grilling.

Notice that I didn’t say, “sprinkle liberally” or even “season generously.” I’m talking about literally coating your meat until you can’t see red. It should resemble a salt lick.

How Salting Works

Now – note that only a little of the salt gets to go back into the meat. Don’t worry – you aren’t going to be eating all that salt!
