Apple to launch iPhone in China

Apple's iPhone is set to make its debut in China at the end of this year after the U.S. company signed an agreement with China Unicom, the country's second largest mobile operator.
Apple to launch iPhone in China
China Unicom said Friday that it would begin selling 3G iPhone in the fourth quarter after the signing of a non-exclusive three-year contract with Apple.

The company said it would not use Apple's traditional revenue sharing model, and would rather pay the group at wholesale basis.

China Unicom said it hoped that the introduction of the iPhone will boost falling profitability.

The company said Friday that first half net profit fell 42.1 percent to Rmb6.62bn ($ 969m) in mid-heated competition, while revenues fell 4.3 percent to Rmb74.51bn.

Chang Xiaobing, Chairman and CEO, said he expected the iPhone to lure more advanced users who spend more on data services.

"The iPhone will help us to change the structure of our customer base and improve the [average revenue per user]," says Chang.

The news ended months of speculation about a partnership between the two companies will open up a huge new market for Apple, which has sold an estimated 26m iPhones.

The move will make China Unicom and Apple in direct competition with China Mobile, which is set to launch a series of smart phones based on Google's Android operating system.

The world's largest mobile telecommunications company, subscribers will launch smart phones made by Dell, American computer manufacturer, Lenovo China and Taiwan's HTC.

China Telecom, meanwhile, is in talks with Research In Motion, the manufacturer of the BlackBerry and Palm devices offer.

I'm afraid of marketing expenses for the entire industry will grow because of this, "said Marvin Lo, analyst at Daiwa Securities.

Analysts asked how much of a boost the iPhone will lead to China Unicom as a gray-market iPhones are not bound to one operator is widely available.

Analysts estimated 1m-2m iPhones in use in China, which has almost 700 mobile users.

Sandy Shen, an analyst with Gartner, a research firm, says that although the gray-market imports had proven to be popular among some wealthy clients, many users complained about the nuisance as well as Chinese characters in their phones, a serious disadvantage in Mainland China was text messaging is hugely popular.

If the iPhone does not prove a hit in China, analysts say, could revive the Apple brand in the country. Apple's Mac computers are rarely seen on the mainland.

Two Moons on 27th August | Two Moons | Mars Close to Earth | August 27 Mars | Mars August 27

The two moons in the 27 August 2009 is just a joke! Dos Lunas Cielo (2 moons in the sky) is impossible. Many expect to see two moons tonight while watching the sky, but let me break you sweet dreams by telling you it is false and are not even possible. This is only one world to send e-mail spam that started the rumor, and it is not more than that. I do not know if you got one of these emails in the last 3 years, after day 27 August 2009, there will be an unusual event in the sky. It is people will be able to see 2 moons instead of the ordinary, we usually see. In fact, since 2006 is a spam email being forwarded around the world?
Two Moons on 27th August | Two Moons | Mars Close to Earth | August 27 Mars | Mars August 27
I remember I got it last year and that really caught my attention and I had read it. Usually I only send this e-mail to the spam box, but that one was interesting, but the fact is it is fake and stupid. The email explained that today August 27, 2009, Mars will be very close to Earth, and this incident will not happen before the year 2287!

So because of this close encounter, we will see two moon-size objects in the sky! Well, if we use our brains a bit, it is easy to see, this is not possible. Even with an ordinary pair of binoculars, we can not see Mars as big. Now to see Mars as the size of the moon, the planet approaches the Earth over millions of KM!

This is not possible. Fernando Jauregui, astrophysicist from the planetarium in Pamplona-Iruna turns this argument on IETB days. Well if you were the person who sent the e-mail to your friends as well, so be sure you have a good idea lol. So if you want to see the sky in the evening enjoys the sight of the stars and the moon, do it, but do not wait until midnight to see two moons.

Farah Khan goes from Salman to SRK

Bollywood choreographer-director Farah Khan says it was a conscious decision to start her new television chat show with actor Salman Khan and
Salman Khan
Salman Khan
his mother Salma, who has never given an interview before.


And interestingly, the "Tere Mere Beach Mein" series ends with none other than Shah Rukh Khan.

"It was a joint decision taken by the channel and me. They felt that the episode turned out to be very candid and since Salman has never come on a chat show before, it could be a nice way to hook on the audience to the show. So we start with Salman and end it with Shah Rukh," Farah told IANS.

She said it wasn't difficult at all to convince Salman and his mother to be her first guests on the show that starts Sunday.

"Salman has never come on a chat show - neither 'Koffee With Karan' nor 'Oye! It's Friday' and not even 'Rendezvous with Simi Garewal'. It's for the first time he's come on a chat show. His mother has never in her life come on a TV show or even given a print interview. And I just had to tell them once. It was very easy to convince them to come," said Farah.

The filmmaker managed to get several celebrities on her debut chat show but couldn't get her dream guests - former railway minister Lalu Prasad and singer-actor Himesh Reshammiya.

"I really wanted to get Lalu-ji and Himesh together for my show. But he (Lalu) had a cataract operation and so things couldn't work out. But I really hope these two people come to my show, if I have a second season," said Farah.

To give her chat show a twist, Farah has a separate theme for each episode. She brought Salman to talk about being a 'Mamma's boy' and Shah Rukh Khan as a henpecked husband. She had Priyanka Chopra talk about her struggle as an actor.

Asked what the theme for the Lalu-Himesh episode would have been, she said: "I wanted to get them in a category of 'I don't care people'. And these two people are such that no matter how much people imitate them, ridicule them or mimic them, they just don't care. They only do their work."

Other guests on her show will include Hrithik Roshan, Asin Thottumkal, Deepika Padukone, Abhay Deol, Neil Nitin Mukesh, Kareena Kapoor and cricketers Yuvraj Singh and Irfan Pathan.

What Kangna dreads the most...

screen.


And while nothing seems to faze this sassy actress, what with Kangna having pulled off some of the most daring scenes on camera with much ease, there is one thing that gives her nightmares — getting on stage.

Admitting to her stage fright, Kangna says that having to face the audience on stage is what she dreads the most. “Yes, nothing ever makes me nervous except speaking on the stage. I still get jitters when I have to do that, even if it’s just to say a thank you,” confesses the actress.

Heidi Montag is the Bearer of Bad News

[14352_1014_thumb.jpg]

I thought it was over. I thought we survived the worst of it. It was hard, and we lost a lot of good men out there... great men... but I thought it meant something. Now, though, we learn it's all going to happen again. Oh God, it's all going to happen again! We're not through, not by a long shot...

[14347_1014_thumb.jpg]

Heidi Montag is possibly going to pose for Playboy again.

Why didn't Heidi Pratt bare all in the September issue of Playboy?

"Always leave them asking for more," she said on Ryan Seacrest's KIIS-FM radio show Tuesday. "Next time, I'll have more to reveal."

Asked if she has a two- or three-part Playboy deal, she coyly replied, "Maybe."

Though many of the photos were racy, she said she didn't feel she compromised her Christianity.

"For me personally, I feel like God created the body, and the body is beautiful," she said. "The way God created us was naked. So I am not ashamed of it. I'm proud of it... This was such a blessed experience."


[14344_1014_thumb.jpg]

Heidi went on to say her moral center isn't violated when she gets banged from behind by a line of dudes as Spencer watches, since that's called Doggy Style and God created the doggy. And when she snorts lines of cocaine off the mirror, she knows the drug comes from nature and it's just a way of praising Jesus. Heidi then ended the interview short saying she had to go get another abortion so she could send more friends to God in Heaven. Hallelujah!

Heidi Montag Playboy photos

[14355_1014_thumb.jpg]

Well, we've built it up enough here on Celebrity Milkshake, might as well take this baby on home. Here are the airbrushed, bleached-blonde, nude-but-not, lifeless Heidi Montag Playboy photos. I want you to understand I wouldn't do this for anyone, just for you. Going through these photos was worse than the dental surgery I had this morning, I kid you not.


[14352_1014_thumb.jpg]

In fact, my doctor actually had a copy of this Playboy sitting on the counter. I said, "Hey Doc, why's this here?" To which he replied, "I'm a dentist, I'm a glutton for pain. Now, you read it as I warm up the drill. Until then, you need some Novocaine from this giant needle?" "Nah," I said, flipping through the pages, "I've pretty much gone numb from this torture. Thanks though."

Britney Spears blesses us with several more bikini photo ops


[14321_1013_thumb.jpg]

Britney Spears got such rave reviews with her first round of bikini shots that she’s conveniently decided to bare a her body again just a few days later. Brit notoriously gained a good deal of weight during her breakdown, but she’s worked incredibly hard to shed the pounds. In fact she looks a-mazing, so it’s no surprise she wants the paparazzi to see, especially given how eagerly they snapped all those bad photos of her. And Brit’s not the only one who’s changed her look – sons Jayden and Sean lost several inches of hair this weekend!

[14291_1013_thumb.jpg]


Britney Spears’ adorable sons Sean Preston and Jayden James managed to steal the spotlight from their famous mother with their new haircuts yesterday. Spending a family day by the pool in Los Angeles, the boys looked unrecognisable after their bowl cuts were shaved off to reveal a buzz cut. With Sean, three, and Jayden, two, fast approaching their birthdays next month, it looks like their parents Britney and Kevin Federline may have decided it was time to update their look.

[14318_1013_thumb.jpg]


The lookalike siblings, who are exactly a year apart in age, looked even blonder than usual without their formerly heavy fringes covering their delicate features. Fortunately it was only the boys getting their heads shaved this time, after their mother previously shorn off her blonde locks during her high-profile meltdown in February 2007. Despite not having reached nursery age, it appears the young boys are growing up to be quite the cool pair as they wore sunglasses and baseball caps to protect themselves from the sun.

Older brother Sean was wearing a pair of orange swimming trunks, while his younger sibling looked more colourful in a pair of navy, orange and green trunks. They also wore silver chains with pendants of their initials on, to help people tell them apart. Clearly revelling in spending time with her beloved boys, Britney spent the day playing in the pool with Sean and Jayden.

[14303_1013_thumb.jpg]


The 27-year-old singer looked determined on catching maximum sun as she showed off her curvy figure in a green bikini. Still learning to swim, both boys were wearing arm bands to keep them afloat at the pool at the five star Ritz Carlton Hotel in the LA seaside suburb of Marina Del Rey. Clearly taking after their mother, both boys have grown up comfortable in the spotlight… It was the second day in a row Britney spent relaxing at the Ritz Carlton. On Saturday, she and a female friend spent the afternoon drinking cocktails at the resort and chilling out in the jacuzzi. Her choice of swimwear was a lot more eye-catching too - she wore a hot pink bikini to complement her light golden tan.

[14300_1013_thumb.jpg]


[From the Daily Mail]

You’ve got to give Britney credit for how great she looks. The boys look cute too, though I did sort of adore their little bowl cuts. The close-cropped hair and quasi-bling reminds me of their dad a bit. K-Fed’s sort of this gentler, wider version of his former self, which is endearing in a way. But old K-Fed was super annoying with his ridiculous outfits and man-bling. There was something so charming about Sean and Jayden’s bowl cuts. They’re cute either way, especially with their water wings and pool toys. It looks like Britney genuinely enjoys spending time with them, and is at a great point in her life.
