Clicks of the Day: September 21, 22, 23 2012 Weekend Edition!

Welcome to the three-day roundup …

Weekend Edition (September 21, 22, 23) of Clicks of the Day!

Clicks of the Day is a daily round up of news posted Sunday through Thursday with quantity and quality of content differing depending on how busy Linda’s day is.

    Edmonton/Alberta/Canada

  • Teen finishes ride from Edson to Edmonton, raises $1,500 for the Stollery
  • “An Edson teen wrapped up the bike ride of his life on Sunday – after cycling from the small Alberta town all the way to Edmonton to raise money for the Stollery Children’s Hospital.”

    So impressed with him!!!

  • Even more products added to nation-wide ground beef recall
  • “A nation-wide recall involving ground beef products from an Edmonton manufacturer has been expanded for the sixth time. The products by Edmonton’s XL Foods Inc. are being recalled over concerns of possible E. coli contamination. The recall was first issued a week ago and on Sunday the Canadian Food Inspection Agency expanded the recall for the sixth time – to include even more potentially affected products.”

    This is getting ridiculous now. Six times the recall has been expanded? What a mess.

  • Quebec student group wants free tuition now that hike is off the table
  • “One Quebec student group says that with tuition hikes officially off the table, it will now champion the idea of free education. The new Parti Quebecois government scrapped a controversial increase in post-secondary tuition fees this week and a hardline student group is now turning to free education as its long-term goal.”

    Wow. Cheapest tuition in Canada still not good enough for ya eh.

    World

  • America soon to ban smiling on drivers’ license photographs
  • “In an effort to weed out the bad guys, the FBI is rolling out a nation-wide facial recognition system. Soon, it will be illegal for drivers to smile on their driver’s license photographs, as exaggerated smiles prevent the software from working properly.”

    Sigh.

  • Himalayas avalanche sweeps away climbers in Nepal
  • “At least nine people have been killed and several are missing in Nepal after an avalanche hit climbers and guides at a camp on a Himalayan peak. The bodies of a German and a Nepalese guide have been recovered from the slopes of Mount Manaslu, police say. A further seven bodies have been sighted by rescue pilots. Spanish foreign ministry officials say one of the dead is a Spanish national.”

    Very sad.

    Health

  • Why sleeping in and sleeping pills will just make you more tired
  • “Insomnia is rampant. One in three of us — more than ever before — struggles with sleeplessness, and one in 10 has a diagnosed sleep disorder. While we should rest for up to nine hours a night, we average less than seven, leading to a reliance on sleeping aids and pills for quick-fix results. So why are we unable to switch off? A new study by the Lighting Research Centre, at the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in New York State, published last week, identified how exposure to certain types of light can disrupt our sleep. Researchers confirmed that “blue light” from the screens of smartphones, tablet computers and e-readers is particularly detrimental — especially when we’re exposed to it two hours before bed.”

    Lol – I definitely look at my phone or computer two hours before bed (typically) but I have no problems zonking out!!

  • Weight and taste sensitivity are linked, new study says
  • “The secret to avoiding weight gain may be residing on the top of your tongue. According to a new German study, obese children have less sensitive taste buds than kids of normal weight, and that may drive them to eat more.”

    Interesting!

    Technology/Social Media/Internet

  • Device that shuts people up, dynamics of sloshing coffee are among 2012 Ig Nobel winners
  • “For anyone who’s ever been tired of listening to someone drone on and on and on, two Japanese researchers have the answer. The SpeechJammer, a device that disrupts a person’s speech by repeating his or her own voice at a delay of a few hundred milliseconds, was named Thursday as a 2012 winner of the Ig Nobel prize — an award sponsored by the Annals of Improbable Research magazine for weird and humorous scientific discoveries.”

    Lol funny.

  • Tweets will be downloadable by the end of the year
  • “Speaking at an Online News Association conference, Twitter CEO Dick Costolo said that users would have the ability to download their tweets by the end of this year.”

    I’m not sure if I would ever use a record of my tweets but cool!

  • Second hostage situation in a month liveblogged on Facebook
  • “For the second time in a month, criminals have used public Facebook status updates to communicate with police and loved ones during hostage situations.”

    Sign of the times…

    Business/Work/Economy/Media

  • Apple, Samsung demand changes to jury’s $1B patent trial verdict
  • “Neither side in a bitter patent battle is satisfied with Apple Inc.’s $1 billion jury verdict over Samsung Electronics Co. after a three-week trial this summer. Samsung wants a new trial. Apple is seeking an additional $707 million in damages and interest.”

    Okay, I love you Apple but let’s not get too greedy!!

  • Controversial 9/11 film soars to #1 on PBS, breaks local records
  • “A daring new documentary that uses scientific analysis to challenge the official 9/11 story became the most popular film on PBS during the week of the 9/11 anniversary, which followed its record-breaking broadcast on Colorado Public Television (CPT12).”

    Awesome! Need to watch it.

    Environment/Space/Animals/Science

  • Will humans eventually all look like Brazilians?
  • “It really happened: Six generations of inbreeding spanning the years 1800 to 1960 caused an isolated population of humans living in the hills of Kentucky to become blue-skinned. The startlingly blue people, all descendants of a French immigrant named Martin Fugate and still living near his original settlement on the banks of Troublesome Creek when hematologists studied them in the 1960s, turned out to have a rare blood condition called methemoglobinemia… Stearns says globalization, immigration, cultural diffusion and the ease of modern travel will gradually homogenize the human population, averaging out more and more people’s traits. Because recessive traits depend on two copies of the same gene pairing up in order to get expressed, these traits will express themselves more rarely, and dominant traits will become the norm. In short, blue skin is out. Brown skin is in.”

    Fascinating.

  • Scientists find way to ‘kick-start’ infertile sperm dramatically increasing pregnancy chances
  • “Researchers have found that adding a missing protein to infertile human sperm can ‘kick-start’ its ability to fertilise an egg and dramatically increase the chances of a successful pregnancy.”

    Neat!

  • A new-found world, possible to sustain life
  • “In the region of Dorado constellation, 50 light years from Earth, researchers found Gliese 163c, orbiting the star Gliese 163, with potential structures and compositions scientists believe could possibly sustain life.”

    Cool.

  • Race is on as ice melt reveals arctic treasures
  • “With Arctic ice melting at record pace, the world’s superpowers are increasingly jockeying for political influence and economic position in outposts like this one, previously regarded as barren wastelands. At stake are the Arctic’s abundant supplies of oil, gas and minerals that are, thanks to climate change, becoming newly accessible along with increasingly navigable polar shipping shortcuts. This year, China has become a far more aggressive player in this frigid field, experts say, provoking alarm among Western powers.”

    Interesting!

  • Burnt items show humans recycled even 13,000 years ago
  • “Archaeologists have discovered that humans from the Upper Palaeolithic Age recycled their stone artifacts to be put to other uses. Researchers found a high percentage of burnt remains in the Moli del Salt site in Tarragona, Spain which date back to the end of the Upper Palaeolithic Age some 13,000 years ago. The study found that the recycling of tools was normal during the Upper Palaeolithic Age and was more common for domestic activities and seems to be associated with immediate needs.”

    Neat!

    Weird News, Other News, Good News & Fluff (Usually cat videos)

  • Synchronized toilet flushing in Zimbwabe to unblock sewers
  • “In a case of get ready, get set, flush, home owners in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe have been asked to flush their toilets at a specific time. The two main dams, supplying water to Bulawayo, Zimbabwe’s second largest city, have been drying up due to severe droughts in the southwestern part of the country. This has raised fears of worsening water shortages before the rainy season starts in November. Now the Bulawayo City Council is asking its 1.5 million residents to flush their toilets simultaneously, at precisely 7:30 pm, to unblock the sewers.”

    That’s a cool experiment!

  • Woman with cancer saved by coughing up tumour
  • “A 38-year-old woman from the UK coughed up an entire tumor a year ago, and now doctors have told her that she is cancer free.”

    Wow!

  • [Video]: 1989 Radio Shack cellular phone commercial
  • Funny! Wow $799 eh?

  • [Photos]: The 50 most romantic photographs of all time
  • “From twitterpated youths to death do us part, from 1586 to 2012, and from Paris to Times Square: this is the look of love. Warning: heart fluttering, heart breaking, and heart re-making all straight ahead.”

    So much love.

  • [Video]: Proof that cats are better than dogs
  • YES!!! :) I still love dogs though but my love for cats is exponentially greater. #CATLADY

Clicks of the Day: Thursday, September 20, 2012 Edition!

Welcome to Thursday, September 20 2012′s Clicks of the Day!

Clicks of the Day is a daily round up of news posted Sunday through Thursday with quantity and quality of content differing depending on how busy Linda’s day is.

    Edmonton/Alberta/Canada

  • Katz Group declines mayor’s invitation to negotiate publicly
  • “Two days after the mayor issued a public statement – inviting the Katz Group to hold public negotiations on the downtown arena project – the company has responded to, and declined, the offer.”

    Ah. Will this never end.

  • Developer doesn’t want teenage neighbours, St. Albert mayor says
  • “Plans to develop land across from Servus Place in St. Albert have been put on hold indefinitely and the developer is now under fire for comments he made about teenagers in the neighbourhood. Conditions on Canterra Development’s plan to build on a vacant field across from Servus Place in the Kingswood neighbourhood included donating 10 per cent of the land to the community. However, now that the city wants to build a high school in that space, St. Albert’s mayor says the developer is refusing to move forward with the plan. Mayor Nolan Crouse says the developer told him on several occasions that “teenagers don’t make good neighbours.””

    Yikes… who says that?!

  • Edmonton boy hurt in Highway 63 crash could have brain damage, paralysis
  • “A seven-year-old Edmonton boy seriously hurt in a crash on Highway 63 is slowly improving but doctors still don’t know if he will fully recover, his parents say.”

    So sad.

  • Bill to offer EI benefits to families with sick children
  • “The federal government is bringing in new rules to help families of gravely ill or injured children. Legislation to be tabled this week called the Helping Families in Need Act will allow parents whose children develop serious diseases such as cancer to collect Employment Insurance benefits for up to 35 weeks. There will also be amendments to the Canada Labour Code to protect the jobs of parents who take leaves of absence to care for critically ill children.”

    Sounds great.

  • Tuition hikes scrapped at first Parti Quebecois cabinet meeting
  • “It’s over — the tuition increase that triggered such social strife in Quebec has been cancelled. The Parti Quebecois government repealed the fee hike, by decree, in its first cabinet meeting Thursday on its first full day in office. Premier Pauline Marois acted on a promise that she had made during the election campaign. She announced the decision at a news conference after the meeting.”

    So the riots will stop…

    World

  • U.S. judge won’t force YouTube to remove anti-Islam film clip
  • “A U.S. judge has denied a request to force YouTube to remove an anti-Islam film trailer that has been blamed for causing deadly protests in the Muslim world. The judge rejected the request from Cindy Lee Garcia, an actress who appears in the clip, in part because the man behind the film was not served with a copy of the lawsuit.”

    Hmm.

  • More charges sought in deadly U.S. theatre shooting
  • “Prosecutors are seeking more charges against the suspect in the U.S. theatre rampage that killed 12 in one of the worst mass shootings in the country’s history, a new court document says.”

    Hmmmm.

    Health

  • Almost a third of Canadian kids are overweight: study
  • “Almost a third of Canadian children are considered either overweight or obese, new figures from Statistics Canada reveal. According to the latest Canadian Health Measures Survey, 31.5 per cent of children aged five to 17 were overweight in 2009 to 2011. That’s an estimated 1.6 million kids.”

    Sad but not surprising!

    Technology/Social Media/Internet

  • Apple: We’re ‘just getting started’ with Maps, be patient
  • “Ever since Apple rolled out iOS 6 on Wednesday, iPhone users have panned the new maps app for being noticeably worse than Google Maps. One even created a new Tumblr curating user-submitted images of mapping fails on the new OS. Now, Trudy Miller, a spokesperson for Apple, has offered the following statement in response to these complaints: We launched this new map service knowing it is a major initiative and that we are just getting started with it. Maps is a cloud-based solution and the more people use it, the better it will get.”

    Lol. Bring back Google Maps! :’(

  • Most parents keep kids calm with mobile devices: study
  • “You do your best to connect with your family, your children, setting aside family-only time in order to connect with your kids. Family dinners work well, but using smartphones and tablets is a rising trend in bonding with, teaching and pacifying young ones, a recent survey shows.”

    Understandably!

  • By 2014, 1 in 10 social media reviews will be fake: study
  • “For most of us, an exceptional number of top-notch online reviews determines which movie, hotel room, car or gadget we will choose over the competition. It’s the same for foodies deciding where to host a celebratory dinner or just looking for a great morning cup of joe. What’s now a huge problem with falsified online restaurant reviews is going to explode over time. By 2014, 10% to 15% of social media reviews will be fake and paid for by companies, according to a new study by tech research company Gartner. Increased customer reliance on amateur reviews exacerbates unmerited ratings.”

    Oh darn. Well just know that MY reviews will be real (and I have a backlog of restaurants I have to still review…)

    Business/Work/Economy/Media

  • Zellers sets mascot Zeddy free as they prepare for liquidation in new video
  • “After being the smiling, fuzzy face of Zellers since 1986, teddy bear mascot “Zeddy” has been set free from his duties of taking pictures with small children at Zellers locations across Canada. The video is part of the Zellers marketing campaign to not just spread the word that they’re going out of business (soon to be replaced by Target locations in many parts of Canada), but that they’re looking for a new home for Zeddy. The company’s Facebook page is hosting a contest to give a charitable organization the chance to be Zeddy’s new home and receive a $5000 donation.”

    Aw poor Zeddy – but also, neat for them to go about this approach as part of their going-out-of-business!

  • Air Canada to hire 900 over next year, 200 more for new low-cost carrier
  • “Air Canada says it will hire about 1,100 employees across a number of fields, including 200 at its new low-cost carrier. The airline said Thursday the jobs are part of its strategy to “seize new commercial opportunities, enhance customer service and renew our workforce.” Air Canada says it will hire approximately 400 flight attendants and some 500 airport customer service agents and baggage handlers.”

    Economy boost~

  • Aging Canada: Dwindling birthrate and aging population to hurt economy says expert
  • “Canada’s aging population, combined with a lacklustre birthrate, is going to dramatically impact our country’s economic performance in the future, according to an expert in the field. Canada is going to prove troublesome within the next 12 years, David Foot, a professor of economics at the University of Toronto and co-author of the book “Boom, Bust & Echo: How to Profit from the Coming Demographic Shift” told the Global Business Forum in Banff, Alta.”

    Oh we’ll see.

  • Canadian creates ‘sexy’ multi-height heel
  • “Tanya Heath is on a double mission: to prove women can wear heels without ruining their feet, and that her answer to their plight, a heel that switches from high to low, can be made entirely in France. The Paris-based Canadian started with a simple idea. When your shoes start to hurt — half way through a party, a wedding or a workday — press a button in the sole, slot out your dressy high heel and replace it with a walking version.”

    Great idea!!

    Environment/Space/Animals/Science

  • “There is no such thing as time”
  • “Julian Barbour’s solution to the problem of time in physics and cosmology is as simply stated as it is radical: there is no such thing as time. “If you try to get your hands on time, it’s always slipping through your fingers,” says Barbour. “People are sure time is there, but they can’t get hold of it. My feeling is that they can’t get hold of it because it isn’t there at all.” ”

    Hmmm.

    Weird News, Other News, Good News & Fluff (Usually cat videos)

  • Sir Richard Branson wants to start colony on Mars
  • “Sir Richard Branson wants to start a colony on Mars. The entrepreneur — who runs the Virgin Galactic program, which is planning to launch space tours of Earth in 2014 — is “determined” to populate the ‘Red Planet’ and thinks it is an achievable dream.”

    Lol.

  • World’s thinnest house gets closer to big opening
  • “Good news for giraffes! Construction has started on a house that’s being called the world’s narrowest. The dwelling — located in a passageway between two buildings in Warsaw, Poland’s Wola district — measures 47 inches at its widest point and 27 inches at its narrowest.”

    Many of my comments today for stories appear to be ‘hmmm’ but I feel like it applies, lol.

  • Asia’s most expensive drink goes for $26,000
  • “Asia’s most expensive drink can be had for a whopping S$32,000 (around US$26,000) at a club for the super rich in Singapore, reported Malaysia’s Bernama news agency Tuesday.”

    What a waste of money!

  • [Photos]: Rich cats of Instagram
  • Loooooove this!!!

  • [Video]: Pig rescues baby goat
  • “A goat at a petting zoo gets it’s foot caught, fortunately for him, a super hero pig comes along to save the day.”

Clicks of the Day: Monday, September 17, 2012 Edition!

Welcome to Monday, September 17 2012′s Clicks of the Day!

Clicks of the Day is a daily round up of news posted Sunday through Thursday with quantity and quality of content differing depending on how busy Linda’s day is.

    Edmonton/Alberta/Canada

  • Edmonton testing out online voting
  • “Edmontonians may be able to vote from the comfort of their own homes in 2013. The city will test an online voting system with a mock election next month. The 2012 Jellybean Internet Voting Election will be accompanied by roundtable meetings, an online survey, and a citizen jury to determine whether Edmontonians are ready for Internet voting. Feedback and voting results will be used in a report that will go to council in January 2013. The report will outline the cost and reliability of the technology, and will recommend whether the city should offer online voting for special ballots in the October 2013 municipal election.”

    Nice. Way of the future!

  • Edmonton Police Chief Rod Knecht says seizing speeding vehicles is necessary
  • “Local brass are putting out the call for legislation that would allow cops to seize vehicles of drivers caught cruising 50 km or more over posted speed limits. Edmonton Police Chief Rod Knecht — who also serves as President of the Alberta Association of Chiefs of Police — says it’s a necessary step to curb a “dangerous trend” in excessive speeding here in Edmonton, and Alberta in general. He says some motorists have taken speeding to another level, citing a motorcyclist who was recently nabbed traveling at a “frightening” speed of 264 km/h on the Anthony Henday — Edmonton’s ring-road.”

    Fair enough!

  • Knecht wants an Assessment and Sobering Care Centre for chronic alcoholics to sober up
  • “Edmonton police are hoping to build a “safe-sobering” facility in the downtown core where drunks can sleep it off safely and stay out of city jail cells. “What I’ve noticed over the last year is the homeless, the mentally ill, the addicted — whether its alcohol or drugs — numbers are growing in the city,” said police Chief Rod Knecht Monday, during an informal sit down with local media. “It is a strain on our resources and on the shelters.” It’s an issue that’s plagued the city’s downtown core for years and now Knecht is ready to present a possible solution to the city. He’s dreamed up an Assessment and Sobering Care Centre — a 24-7 facility — where cops could take those who are too high or drunk, and have them assessed and cared for.”

    Great for the chronic alcoholics but I wish they’d not be high or drunk in the first place.

  • Albertans, of all ages, pay their respects for Peter Lougheed
  • “Monday marked the first day Albertans could personally pay their respects to a beloved former premier – by the turnout, Peter Lougheed’s love for people was clear. “The nice line up, you see, speaks for itself,” Bert Fredette said. When the doors opened at the Legislature Monday at 10:30 a.m., a steady stream of Albertans stretched far beyond the doors.”

    Check out that line up!!

  • Alberta plant recalls beef products in E. coli scare
  • “The Canadian Food Inspection Agency is warning consumers against consuming various beef products distributed by XL Foods Inc. of Alberta because of possible E. coli contamination. The affected beef products distributed under the Kirkland Signature, Safeway and Calahoo Meats brands are being voluntarily recalled by the company. Specific products include Calahoo Meats’ B.B. Burgers distributed in Alberta as well as various ground beef products sold under the Kirkland Signature label distributed nationally from Aug. 30 to Sept. 15.”

    Feels like a lot of E. coli contamination possibilities lately…

  • Canadian flag removed from Quebec National Assembly
  • “As some Quebec politicians were sworn in as Members of the National Assembly on Monday, one item was noticeably absent from the proceedings: the Canadian flag. According to reporters who attended the swearing-in, the flag had been removed from the National Assembly. The Maple Leaf had been on display during Jean Charest’s nine years as premier.”

    What the heck!!!!!!!!

  • Manitoba boy crossing items off dying service dog’s bucket list
  • “Bingo’s days may be numbered, but his young owner is making sure the now world-famous service dog enjoys them to the fullest. Cole Hein, an 11-year-old Manitoba boy, touched the hearts of thousands of people around the world when he posted a bucket list for his dying service dog Bingo on Facebook. As Cole checks off items on the so-called “lick-it-list,” his family has been receiving supportive letters from strangers and packages full of dog treats for Bingo. Some treats were sent from as far away as China and Australia.”

    This story gets me emotional!!

    World

  • Occupy anniversary: Marches, arrests but, ultimately, less energy
  • “Protesters marked the first anniversary of Occupy Wall Street on Monday with a day of marches that choked Manhattan’s financial district and led to scores of arrests, but that ultimately suggested a movement missing the numbers and energy that propelled it to national prominence last year.”

    Can’t believe it’s just been a year!

  • Violent clashes over anti-Islam film in 3 nations
  • “Here’s a look at protests and reaction across the Middle East and elsewhere Monday over an anti-Muslim film produced in the U.S. ridiculing the Prophet Muhammad.”

    This is crazy…

    Health

  • American kids eat as much salt as adults, researchers warn of risks
  • “American children eat as much salt as adults — about 1,000 milligrams too much, or the same amount as in just one Big Mac. Extra salt is linked with higher blood pressure, even in kids, but government research says those who are overweight and obese may be most vulnerable to its effects.”

    Salt just tastes so good though…

  • Sleep plays key role in weight loss and maintenance
  • “Adequate sleep is a key component to dieting and maintaining a healthy weight, a growing body of scientific research suggests. It’s generally recommended that adults get seven to nine hours of sleep a night. Scientific studies are increasingly pointing to the role sleep — or the lack of it — plays in maintaining a healthy body weight. The evidence suggests inadequate sleep influences body weight in a number of ways.”

    I get sooo much sleep it’s a little silly.

    Technology/Social Media/Internet

  • Canada has ‘almost Third World access to the Internet’: Netflix executive
  • “Netflix Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos spoke in Los Angeles last week and slammed the big Internet service providers in Canada for capping services at ridiculously low rates and charging users absurd amounts of money if they dare go over them. “It’s almost a human rights violation what they’re charging for Internet access in Canada,” he said to the group, according to Internet news site GigaOm. Netflix sales in Canada have been limited largely because streaming video can eat a lot of bandwidth, causing users to hit their monthly data caps faster and then have to pay extra fees to companies like Bell, Rogers, Shaw and Telus. Netflix has tried adjusting the data rates that are streamed to Canadian users, but it hasn’t really helped the overall problem.”

    I hear that! :(

    Business/Work/Economy/Media

  • Apple: iPhone 5 preorders topped 2M in 24 hours
  • “Orders for the iPhone 5 topped 2 million in the first 24 hours after Apple started taking them at 12 midnight Pacific time on Friday. That’s more than double the amount of iPhone 4S orders on its first full day.”

    Wow!!!

    Environment/Space/Animals/Science

  • Fisherman adrift for 106 days in Pacific says shark led him to rescuers
  • “A man who survived while adrift in the Pacific for 106 days is crediting a shark for helping to save his life.”

    Awesome.

  • Climate change threat more real to those with perceived personal experience: study
  • “A new study has found that a feeling of “personally experiencing” global warming heightens people’s perception of risks related to the environmental phenomenon – and particularly those risks germane to where they live. Changes to the seasons, unusual weather, water levels, snowfall patterns and shifts related to plants and animals were among the most common signs cited by lay people.”

    Climate change affecting animals affects me the most. :’(

  • German archaeologists discover 300,000-year-old weapons
  • “Archaeologists from the University of Tübingen, Germany, have discovered eight extremely well-preserved spears dating back 300,000 years, making them the oldest known weapons found anywhere in the world.”

    Neat-o!

  • Canada looks to first space station command opportunity
  • “Veteran space traveler Chris Hadfield is training to become the first Canadian Space Agency astronaut to assume command of the International Space Station. His two-month stint at the helm of the six-person orbiting science laboratory begins in March 2013.”

    Cool!

    Entertainment

  • ‘Sky Road’ is village’s only contact with outside world
  • “The ropeway between Yushan village and the outside world is a simple affair. A pair of thick cables are strung between two high cliff faces with a steel cage suspended below to carry people and goods in and out of the village. Yushan village has a population of just over 200 people and the only access to the outside world is via this ‘sky road’.”

    Wow. Could not live in that village…

  • [Photos]: See your favourite movie scenes and their actual locations – all at once!
  • “It seems that we have a natural desire to check out the places that served as background for some of our favorite filmed entertainment. Now there’s a website that’s taken the legwork out of it for you.”

    Love it.

  • [Video]: Showing people the iPhone 4S and telling them its the new iPhone 5
  • “Jimmy Kimmel talks to people on the street about the new iPhone 5 which was just announced, and shows them the iPhone 4S and gets their thoughts, opinions and comparisons.”
