It's the time for a look into the new year, resolutions and predictions. Everybody has a plan of how they can improve themselves during the new year! New goals, new horizons, new waistline, new clothes. Whatever your style, you will surely find something fun during the new year on BobbinTalk. Here are 5 trends that I think will be big during the new year: 1. Designers will embrace Social media even more and recognize bloggers as important trend-setters 2. If Lady GAGA can rah-rah in 10" contraptions, then most fashionistas will too! 3. Lindsey Lohan will continue to launch fashion... Continue »

Avatar, while certainly not without flaws, manages to create a sense of true epic scope in which the journey becomes greater than the sum of its effects. It is going to become to film that everyone — nerds, families, grandparents — will have to see and it will rake in unbelievable amounts of loot; mountains of cash beyond the imagination. So now it is time to point fingers — at ourselves. How in the heck did we get this so wrong? How did a movie manage to look so horrible and actually turn out to be great? via gawker.com Most...

It's a ridiculous comparison and it's meant to me. The two are designed for two completely different types of people and two completely different types of driving. Mashable doesn't seem to see the distinction. Last week they did a 'WordPress... Continue »
