Ludacris & Eudoxie rang in 2015 as Mr. & Mrs. Bridges.

Luda made the announcement yesterday by posting a photo of him and new wife with the caption:

Why wait? Did the thing before 2015. #mrandmrsrbridges

According to TMZ, Luda popped the question while they were in Georgia on Christmas Eve. They headed out to a restaurant and when they returned home a white dress was draped across the bed for Eudoxie.  Apparently Ludacris’ mom picked out the dress, and they got married on Christmas Eve right there on the spot.  A few family members and friends including Monica and Letoya Luckett were present as they exchanged vows. Then they hopped on a private jet two days later for their honeymoon in Costa Rica.

Congrats to Mr. and Mrs. Bridges!

Is This The New APPLE TV???

Our Source Has Seen The Apple HDTV, Here’s What It Looks Like

(Via…)

We have a source who claims to have seen a prototype Apple high-definition television set in action, indicating that Apple is readying the long-awaited device for market.

According to our source, who has asked to remain strictly anonymous, the Apple HDTV looks like Apple’s current lineup of LED-backlit Cinema Displays but is “much bigger.” It has a built-in iSight camera for making free FaceTime video conference calls. And it has Siri, the iPhone 4S’s voice-activated virtual assistant.

Our Source Has Seen The Apple HDTV, Here’s What It Looks Like

Apple has been rumored to be working on a proper television set for some time, but so far the company’s presence in the living room has been modest, maxing out with the current Apple TV — a small set-top box that is hooked to owners’ existing televisions. Apple describes the current Apple TV as a “hobby,” acknowledging that the device’s features are limited and that it is not a serious attempt by the company to enter the television market.

Such an attempt could revolutionize the living room and disrupt the businesses of the television industry, much like what happened when Apple released the original iPhone back in 2007. TV — and especially cable — is widely seen as ripe for some Apple-like disruption. Rumors that Apple was planning a full frontal assault on the living room reached a fever pitch last year, when Walter Isaacson’s biography of Steve Jobs revealed that Jobs claimed he had “cracked” TV.

Our source claims to have seen a working prototype of the exact device Steve Jobs was talking about when he said he had “cracked TV.”

According to our source, the Apple TV looks a lot like Apple’s current lineup of Cinema Display monitors.

“It resembled an Apple monitor, only much larger,” our source said.

The Apple HDTV makes FaceTime calls using the built-in iSight camera. The camera is sophisticated, with facial recognition and the ability to zoom into the user’s face and follow them as they walk around the room. This allows users to make video calls from the couch across the room, rather than having to stand smack in front of the TV.

In addition, calls are initiated by Siri, the iPhone 4S’s virtual assistant. “[Apple] used Siri to make a FaceTime call,” the source said.

Unfortunately, we don’t know any more about other Siri integration, or the TV’s interface in general. We also don’t know the specs, pricing or release schedule.

Our source is well-placed and has provided us with great tips in the past. However, not all of them have panned out, ostensibly due to the fact that our source tends to see products in the prototype or early development stage and Apple doesn’t always ultimately choose to release them. We hope this is one of our source’s tips about an upcoming Apple product that actually sees market.

The mockup above is a concept made by designer Dan Draper. Explaining his methodology, Dan says, “Obviously it’s very visually similar to the Thunderbolt or Cinema display, but trying to put myself in the shoes of Jony Ive I’ve made the stand shorter, wider to make the user more trusting that it can support the weight, and (see the side view) less angled. I figured users don’t care about the distance from a wall required by a monitor stand, but for a thin, expensive TV they likely want it to sit as close to the wall as possible, so the stand in the mockup allows for that, which I think the Apple industrial design group will do for the real thing.”

UPDATE: For comment, we reached out to TV analyst Paul Gagnon, Director of North American TV Research for NPD DisplaySearch. Gagnon said he didn’t have any hard information, but expects Apple to introduce a line of TVs this year. He noted that Apple’s Chinese supplier, Foxconn, has invested $1.6 billion in Sharp’s TV unit, which can efficiently make large size panels up to 60-inches. Speculating, Gagnon Apple’s TVs will likely be pretty conventional in terms of hardware. They will not be anything exotic like OLED or 4K resolution. There will likely be two to four models ranging from 40-inches to 60-inches. They will be standard 1920 x 1080p resolution and cost between $1,000 to $2,000 or slightly higher. When might they ship? “Our best guess is 2013,” Gagnon said.

Newlyweds Kim Kardashian & Kris Humphries Marriage Already On The Rocks!

 Via: USMagazine.com                 

Just two months since their lavish, $10 million wedding, the newlyweds “are not getting along at all,” a source tells the new Us Weekly.

“Kris is not drinking the Kardashian Kool-Aid, and it’s causing major problems.”

At issue? While Kardashian, 31, juggles her reality shows and multiple moneymaking ventures, the basketball hunk 26, is unemployed thanks to the NBA lockout — and partying up a storm on his wife’s dime.

The hard-working Kardashian is already near her breaking point, a family friend reveals, and the couple had a huge fight days before her Oct. 21 birthday.

“They had it a out!” a family friend says. “She told him he need s to do something productive…He needs to get off his ass, like, yesterday.”

Not everyone’s absolutely shocked by the marital discord — on full display when the newlyweds sat in the audience at Monday’s Dancing with the Stars, showing not one iota of affection.

The pair famously married after just nine months of dating.

 “On some levels,” says the friend, “she feels like she made a mistake.”
