"Call Me Maybe" Phelps Lochte Music Parody - Invade London
It’s safe to say that I, as a Canadian, experience my fair share of culture cringe. Between Justin Bieber, Nickelback and now Carly Rae Jepsen, Canada has contributed it’s fair share of cringe worthy pop. But now that everyone is parodying “Call Me Maybe”, I feel (if only just a little) somewhat better. And if it can bring this much attention to the sport of swimming, well I say bring it on. Now sit back, relax and listen to a grown man wearing water wings serenade you with the sweet sound of Ryan Lochte hating on Michael Phelps. スイムスワムサイトより。
Apple iPhone 5 & iPad Mini to be Unveiled During September 12 Event 3 hours ago ⋅ Tech ⋅ by Alec Banks ⋅ 2772 Views After rampant speculation, credible sources are now pointing to two definitive dates for the unveil and release of both the iPhone 5 and iPad Mini. Wednesday, September 12, 2012 will mark the official look at two of the more sought-after items, while September 21 will serve as the date in which the products will be available for public consumption. In addition, Apple typically shows off hardware-specific iOS features at new iPhone events as well – with last year serving as the introduction to advanced camera and video recording, Voice Control, FaceTime and Siri. As the rumor mill continues to swirl, many anticipate the iPad Mini to be 7 inches in size – nearly 3 inches smaller than the previous model. While Apple has yet to comment, expect a confirmation or denial very shortly as the sources of the rumor come from individuals who have proved accurate in the past.

Rumor: Apple’s iPhone 5 Will Be Released on September 21 11 hours ago As with any rumor, it must be taken with a grain of salt. Yet, this one is so juicy it can’t be ignored. According to french blog App4phone.fr, the iPhone 5 has a planned release date of September 21 of this year. Without an extensive track record of breaking tech stories in the past, the rumor remains just that: a tidbit with little facts supporting the claim. For now, treat your iPhone 4S like it’s the only technological love of your life.
