New Lipstick Changes Colors When Ladies Are Horny

Science! That is what explains how Mood Swing Emotionally Activated Lip Gloss works, I assume. The makers claim that when a lady wearing it is in the mood for carnal pleasures, it turns deep red. How does it work, you ask? By "reacting with a girl's body chemistry." Oh, I see, well that sure explains it.

Michael Jackson’s "Thriller" Might Be Rereleased in 3D

Apparently the lawsuits and royalty issues that had been holding up such a release have been resolved following the death of the pop star. Landis also dropped the new that the owners of Jackson’s estate want to convert the music video into 3D. Landis is apparently fine with the idea even though he might not be a fan of the technology.

Google is Set to Take Over Your TV

The NYTimes  has the details on Google TV, an ambitious platform to deliver web content to Android-based set-top boxes and TVs through partnerships with Sony, Intel, and Logitech.

The Google TV software reportedly includes a version of Google's Chrome browser for doing some light surfing, as well. [NY Times]
