Apple Unveils The iPhone 6 And The Apple Watch

  • Today, Apple unveiled two new phones: the gigantic-screened iPhone 6 and the even clunkier iPhone 6 Plus. Both phones will be released on September 19th. One exciting feature will be mobile payments, which allows users to use the phone as a credit card on trips to the store. A bigger surprise announcement today was the upcoming Apple Watch, which is essentially a teensy iPhone for your wrist that also heavily monitors your fitness activity. The watch will be available in early 2015 for around $350. Exciting! [The Verge, New York Times]
  • But don’t get too excited: those new iPhones may be too big for women’s hands. [The Atlantic]
  • U2 pulled a Beyonce and announced a surprise album release at today’s big Apple unveiling. (Whatever, Beyonce still did it first.) The album, Songs of Innocence, is currently available on iTunes for free — yes, free. ( [Entertainment Weekly] Keep reading »

“Fox & Friends” Hosts Joke About Ray Rice Beating His Fiancée, Don’t Apologize

MORNING QUICKIES

Fox's Faux Apology
  • “Fox & Friends” host Brian Kilmeade joked yesterday that the message behind the brutal video released by TMZ depicting since-terminated Ravens player Ray Rice beating his then-fiancée Janay Rice was “take the stairs.” His co-host Steve Doocy quipped, “The message is, when you’re in a an elevator, there’s a camera.” On today’s show, Kilmeade addressed the response to their tasteless jokes, claiming the show takes domestic violence “seriously” … but did not actually apologize for cracking wise about violence against women. Typical! [Raw Story]

The Royal Baby Might Convince Scotland To Stay In The United Kingdom

  • In 10 days, Scotland will vote on whether to stay part of the British union or take on independence, and a theory is floating around that William and Kate’s soon-to-be royal baby could change the vote. Lots of Scots are feeling warm fuzzies over Kate’s pregnancy, and lest we forget, the couple met in Scotland at the University of St. Andrews. Will and Kate even have their own special titles while in Scotland, and more than a few citizens would be pretty bummed if the royal family suddenly became foreigners. How’s that for a lot of pressure on a kid? [Telegraph UK]
  • Kate may have to cancel her first solo overseas tour to Malta due to her new bout of acute morning sickness. [Vanity Fair] Keep reading »

TMZ Releases Video Of Ray Rice Punching Then-Fiancée Janay Palmer Out Cold [UPDATE]

UPDATE, 2:45p.m.: The Baltimore Ravens terminated their contract with Ray Rice today following the release of the video by TMZ.  According to ESPN, the Ravens had no other comment. [ESPN]  

  • TMZ released a video of Baltimore Ravens player Ray Rice punching his then-fiancée Janay Palmer out cold during an argument in an elevator. The video appears to have been shot by asecurity system in the Revel Hotel and Casino in New Jersey, where Rice attacked Palmer on February 15th. In the video, Rice is seen shoving or slapping Palmer against the wall of the elevator. She responds by lunging towards him, but Rice punches Palmer so hard she knocks her head on the side of the elevator and hits the ground. (What is perhaps most gut-wrenching is that Rice doesn’t look particularly shocked at what he just did.) When the elevator doors open, Rice drags her lifeless body from the elevator and she lies facedown on the floor. Within a few seconds, someone appears outside the elevator doors talking to Rice. Palmer eventually sits up, but appears to be in pain. The whole video — which resulted in a paltry two-game suspension for Rice back in July  — is extremely disturbing. But you know what? This is what domestic violence looks like, people. [TMZ] Keep reading »
