Marisa Miller and Alessandra Ambrosio frolic on a beach with a bevy of beauties, comedian Bob Odenkirk takes his razor-sharp wit to George W. Bush, and why Google is pissed off at Apple...all that and more after the jump in today's Mantenna!

Marisa Miller and Alessandra Ambrosio Still Looking Good

A hot photo collection of ladies such as Marisa Miller, Alessandra Ambrosio, Miranda Kerr, Doutzen Kroes and Izabel Goulart prancing about the beach in their new bikinis has surfaced. Also, note the hot pics of Kim Kardashian and Kristin Cavallari. Wherever this beach is, most men would pay top dollar to get their tanning in at this place. [WWTDD]

President Bush’s Exit Interview: Face to Bush

Bob Odenkirk, super genius behind Mr. Show and a variety of other underappreciated comedic endeavors, has not finished with George W. Bush.  He, surely, is no lame duck comedian.  A tiny taste for you: in response to detractors labeling him the worst president of all time, George Bush offers a politically guarded, “Up yours.” []

Sam Rockwell Takes it to the Moon

Sam Rockwell is the star of an indie sci-fi flick that’s been kept on the down-low up until now titled Moon. Duncan Jones (a.k.a. Zowie Bowie, David Bowie’s son) is directing. A batch of production pictures hit the web today and they’re a pretty impressive sneak preview at what could very well be an excellent little movie. Rockwell has more than proven his mettle with films like Confessions of a Dangerous Mind, The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford, and, most recently, Choke. [BD Horror News]

Turkey Leg Porn: Gobble, Gobble, Gobble


What's the next big thing?  It's turkey leg porn, of course.  You had to see this one coming what with Thanksgiving around the corner and America's well documented oral fixation.  Check out COED Magazine for the enormous and disturbing collection of Flickr photos starring sweating, gape-mouthed ladies and their giant shanks of meat.

USB 3.0 SuperSpeed Technology Debuts

Need speed? The new USB 3.0 “SuperSpeed” drives are 10 times as fast as your USB 2.0 drive. For example, they could transfer a 25 GB movie in 70 seconds.  By comparison, the old USB 1.0 and 2.0 would’ve taken 9.3 hours and 13.9 minutes respectively.  Don’t get too excited, though.  They’ve only confirmed the specs on the technology and products likely won’t be available for a year or two.

Apple Snubs Google

Google launched a voice-activated search application to much fanfare last week. There was an article in The New York Times and a big launch party.  However, Apple chose not to feature the application in their iTunes store.  This could be part of Apple’s somewhat complicated app-vetting process. However, it could also be Steve Jobs being a real dick, which certainly has precedent. [Wired]

Prince Speaks Out Against Gay Dudes

The Purple One, who became a Jehovah's Witness in 2001, has been taking his faith pretty seriously lately. Besides going door to door in Minneapolis to pimp out his favorite Christian religious movement, Prince recently spoke out against gay marriage with a really deep quote courtesy of The New Yorker: “God came to earth and saw people sticking it wherever and doing it with whatever, and he just cleared it all out. He was, like, 'Enough.'" [The New Yorker]

Neil Young Smokes Entirely Too Much Weed


Rocker Neil Young has managed to (have someone) create his own electric car out of an old Lincoln convertible. That's pretty remarkable, but Mr. Young's ideas on how to help Detroit are a little less solid. Neil suggests that the Feds give Detroit the money it needs to survive on the condition that the three remaining automakers stop building cars with gas-powered engines immediately. According to Mr. Young's bailout plan, each automaker also must convert one plant to assemble "re-power kits" that would allow these cars to be retrofitted as "self charging electric vehicles." Self-charging, Neil? That sounds swell, but there's just one little problem. Self-charging cars don't exist. [Huffington Post]
