Showing up to your own funeral, Donald Trump, and Ozzie Guillen
Apple's iPad Mini is still getting a lot of buzz this morning. While the 7.9 inch tablet is not as robust as the current iPad (or the forthcoming update), the device can run all the apps made for the iPad 2 in the same resolution. It's also lightweight and can be held in one hand. Yet, it's not as small as a Kindle or a Nook, for example, which have been popular among women. Some analysts believe the iPad mini will be a big hit in the workforce. The price point also is not competitive from a consumer standpoint. At $329, it's a lot more expensive than either of the aforementioned tablets. A little lower price could have dealt a deathblow to other popular tablets. Still, the iPad Mini is likely to be very popular. Apple CEO Tim Cook noted at the event that the company has sold 100 million iPads since the rollout just a couple of years ago.
What is Donald Trump going to be tweeting about President Obama today? That is the burning question for Trump's 1.6 million Twitter followers. He tweeted yesterday about a big announcement today. Speculation is the message refers to Trump's promised "October surprise" involving President Obama. An Irish betting company is taking wagers on what the revelation might be, everything from "Obama is not American" to "Obama is an alien." My guess is he's going to offer President Obama a spot on Celebrity Apprentice should he lose the election.
Ozzie Guillen has been fired. He did not have a very good first year managing the Miami Marlins. It started off with his controversial comments about Fidel Castro, and just went downhill from there.
Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez has been sacked, this time by Eva Longoria. US Weekly described the split as an amicable parting of the ways. Just last month, Longoria, 38, revealed that the two were dating (after months of speculation). Sources say the split had more to do with lifestyle differences than anything else. Sanchez, 25, likes to go out, while Longoria is "more focused on her career and philanthropic work."
A man in Brazil is making news after showing up at his own funeral. According to reports, Gilberto Araujo was identified by his brother at the city morgue. The body was moved to his mother's house for a wake. A few hours before the funeral, a friend saw Gilberto walking down the street and told he was about to be buried. When Gilberto showed up at his own wake, "some people fainted and others were so scared they ran away. It was a big shock," a family friend told G1 Online. I bet it was. Authorities blame the mix-up on the fact that Gilberto and the actual dead guy, Genivaldo Santos Gama, look a lot like.
Yet another Gangnam Style video is trending this morning – this time it is Halloween style. A house in Virginia hung 8,500 bulbs outside their house and synced it up to the song
