Although 81 percent of the state is experiencing an "extreme drought," for many parts of California there is no apparent water shortage. Visit the highest-income neighborhoods and you'll see lush lawns and sparkling fountains defiantly sucking our lifeblood from the Earth. Apparently, as reporter Ann Louise Bardach…
Whitney Houston, the diva of divas, passed away yesterday at the too young age of 48. It's a depressing end to her story of galaxy bending talent, sun magnifying limelight and cursed frailty. Anyone who has ever heard Whitney in her prime will always remember the singular power of her voice. I mean, we all have our…
Oprah's show is over—sob. But the league of spelling-challenged fans who email Opera (a niche browser, not a TV host) will probably continue. Opera's rounded up their favorites. YOU GET A MISTAKEN EMAIL! YOU GET A MISTAKEN EMAIL!
Oprah is a big iPad fangirl. Such a fangirl, in fact, that she bought one iPad for each of her magazine's staffers. She's also a big iPad applications buyer. These are her favorite iPad apps:
Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg is constantly in the middle of some sort of torrid gossip storm, but his home life appears to be the opposite—it's calm and cozy. Here's a brief look into how he and his girlfriend go through an average day.

If you already purchased a myTouch 3G for the full $200 retail price (with contract), it officially sucks to be you. That's because Oprah is gifting everyone a $100 discount on the Android handset through September 24th.
That Oprah, always using product tie-ins in new and different ways, this time jiving with the commander of the USS Louisville "The Slugger" submarine—which is 60 feet underwater off the coast of Hawaii—via Skype.
Oprah, that generous talk show host who no longer needs a last name, stooped down to YouTube to join up with the great unwashed yesterday, and to commemorate the occasion she gave away a $150 Flip Ultra camcorder to everybody in her talk show audience. Check out her condescending peptalk to YouTubers in the video…
Oprah's reach stretches to New York, turning the 5th Ave. Apple Store red in celebration of the Red 4GB iPod Nano release tomorrow. I think this whole charity thing would be unnecessary of Oprah would just go over there and let people drink her saliva and bask in her Oprah-ness.
The two giant stars plan to unveil a 4GB red iPod Nano in order to benefit the Product RED charity. From each sale of the $199 iPod, $10 will be donated towards The Global Fund to help out HIV/AIDS sufferers in Africa.

I'm calling bullshit on this one, for obvious reasons, but apparently Oprah thinks this works so bully for her.
