More New Britney!

When it rains, it pours!

ANOTHER new Britney has leaked, Cold As Fire. Once again, this isn’t awful, thankfully. But, it isn’t a-ma-zing either.

This one and Gimme More are two lovely appetizers, but Britney’s next single needs to be on a whole other level.

Sources close to Spears tell us that she does have those monster hits, especially some of the songs Ne-Yo wrote for her.

She needs another Toxic and we are eagerly waiting.

Until then, this is a very respectable way to start a comeback!

Sony PS2 and the White Christmas

It may be the last generation console, but PlayStation still proves to be very popular among gamers. This Christmas, Sony is launching a new white PlayStation 2 instead of the conventional black.

The PS2 has an installed base of more than 117 million worldwide with 44 million in North America alone. A further 10 million PlayStation 2 units are expected to be sold worldwide by the end of March 2008.

With such a huge base of gamers and its vast collection of games title, the PlayStation 2 is indeed a cash cow for Sony, it really makes me wonder why would a person choose PS2 instead of Nintendo Wii? It may be the number of games title available for PS2 or is it the mindset that was so clearly imprint in each and everyone of us that PlayStation is the sole gaming console?

Doing Saintly Things

How can you not love this woman????

UNHCR Goodwill Ambassador Angelina Jolie has flown to Iraq to witness firsthand the humanitarian crisis there, the United Nations Refugee Agency UNHCR has announced.

Santa Angelina flew from New York to Syria on Monday. In Damascus, she visited a UNHCR registration center and spend hours talking to Iraqi refugees in their homes.

On Tuesday, the mother of four crossed over to Iraq to meet with 1,200 refugees camped out in a makeshift outpost at the border, because they are unable to leave the country.

“I have come to Syria and Iraq to help draw attention to the humanitarian crisis and to urge governments to increase their support for UNHCR and its partners,” Jolie said in a statement. “My sole purpose in both countries is to highlight the plight of those uprooted by the war in Iraq.”

Besides her activities for UNHCR, Jolie also met privately with American troops and other multi-national forces in the region.

Giving back to the horny troops!

Jolie’s humanitarian efforts have taken her all over the world this year.

More celebrities should be like her!
