WTF?!? Can't Upload?!?

The other day, I made a cool music video to the song 'Holler 'till you pass out' by 3oh!3. When I went to upload it, the video got rejected, because the song has been copyrighted. When I searched for 'Holler 'till you pass out' on YouTube, about 1,000 other videos came up that had the song in them. WHY do those videos get to be on YouTube, when my video get rejected? WHY?

Vanessa Hudgens as Leah Clearwater in New Moon?

With all the “New Moon” casting rumors that have been floating around since “Twilight” hit theaters, we were especially wondering who would play werewolf Leah Clearwater, Jacob Black’s feisty and heartbroken frienemy.
Well, one of the rumored actresses in the running — “High School Musical” starlet Vanessa Hudgens — has apparently taken the next step and auditioned for the role, according to “Twilight” actress Ashley Greene.

A look at some of the best iPhone and iPod Touch Apps of 2008.

The iPhone and iPod Touch have taken the world by storm. In just a little over six months time we’ve witnessed the doors of the iTunes App Store opening to the 10,000 app marker being crossed. In between that time we’ve see the $999 I’m Rich make several people poor, fart joke apps earning over $25K in one day, and Apple still looking the other way when users mention copy and paste. And with the number of total apps reaching over 13,500 less than a month since the 10,000 mark was passed, that growth is showing no signs of stopping. But some of these stand out much more than others do, so we’ve tried to hone in on the cream of the crop.
