Using indie video game designer Phil Fish as an example, this video explains the cycle of fame and hate, and how it generates more and more fame. Why do we hate some famous people so much? Why does hate generate even more attention and fame? It's a fascinating process.
Here's a little something for the impatient Sherlock fans: via the Wrap, it's our first image of Benedict Cumberbatch as computer pioneer Alan Turing in The Imitation Game. Nice suspenders, dude.
Did an exotic actress from Vienna, considered one of the most beautiful women in Hollywood in the 1940s, really invent wireless? Not exactly, but the non-sensationalized facts of the matter are no less fascinating, involving Hollywood, the World War II Axis Powers, and remote control technology.
Pictures hacked from Hollywood stars' email accounts and phones seem to be a mainstay of popular culture these days. Chris Chaney, one of the most prolific celebrity hackers to date, was recently arrested—but GQ has a wonderful profile of the man which you really have to read.
Celebrity Sideboob is a website dedicated to one thing only: post images of celebrities showing the bare sides of their breasts.

Laptopmag has just run an article on what they reckon (hope) the next few celebrity mobile phones are likely to be. Apart from the fact that celebrity mobiles help us see Beyoncé's left breast, they are pretty useless, so we are glad some comedy has come of it. Among the bunch, there's the JLo phone with an extra…
British comedian Stephen Fry is awesome in a way similar to Ricky Gervais or Hugh Laurie (his previous showbiz partner), but writing 10,000 words about smartphones just put him over the top into living idol territory.
