Rumors and reports that Facebook has been working on building its own cellphone go back to 2010 when Tech Crunch reported that two high-level Facebook staffers had been tasked with developing a Facebook phone in secret. The rumor resurfaced in 2011 when All Things D reported that the company was working with the Taiwanese cellphone maker HTC to create a cellphone, code-named "Buffy," that has the social network integrated into "the core of its being.

The new year as always brings with it the desire to make a change: eat better, save more, learn a new language, floss every day. We asked some smart bookish types if they have any particularly literary resolutions for 2013 -- they've got some great ideas for kicking off the new year. Antoine Wilson , author of the novel " Panorama City ": My teachers used to encourage me to scribble in the margins while I read, and as a result I'm mortified at the sight of my own marginalia.

PARIS -- Haider Ackermann, who presented his spring-summer 2013 collection Saturday morning at Paris Fashion Week, knows how to set a romantic scene. A single crackling overhead light at the top of the runway, spoken word and jazz on the soundtrack, and models walking ever slowly in clothes that look like they are dripping off their bodies. It's no wonder his pal Tilda Swinton is so devoted. PHOTOS: Paris Fashion Week trends The look: Sexy as hell. East meets West, masculine meets feminine.

That Audi would launch the fire-breathing S8 to compete with German mega-sedans, including the Mercedes-Benz S63 and the BMW Alpina B7, isn't a surprise. That the S8 would provide a viable alternative to its distant cousin -- the Porsche Panamera Turbo -- is. And it does this for $30,000 less. The S8 is the latest S model from Audi. It sits atop the brand's hierarchy of sedans and coupes; only the R8 V-10 supercar has more horsepower. The full-size sedan joins the recently introduced S6, S7 and RS5, giving Audi a compelling mix of competitors to take on Mercedes' AMG line and BMW's M series.

During the lightly attended but absolutely ferocious set Friday from the Aussie goth-menace, a typically beatific Coachella cutie climbed atop a guy's shoulders. She was dressed in flowing, wispy garments and some kind of floral headpiece. She swayed her arms around in a way that a Tiesto crowd might have recognized. Of course, that was pure bait for Nick Cave.
