If Justin Bieber were your boyfriend, you'd live in a world full of hot girls, retro-cool cars and one now-legal teen idol playing guitar, campfire-style. And even though he's not really your boyfriend -- ours either, sad to say -- Bieber's new "Boyfriend" video is happy to let you enjoy that swag vicariously. Warning: It looks as if turning 18 has freed up Mr. Bieber's inner sexy. Of course, it's all relative -- he hasn't exactly drifted in to D'Angelo territory . And it might just be us, 'cause we're sitting here thinking that even his silly fondue line seems a little tastier with the video playing.

There is nothing like listening to Stephen A. Smith drop names, places and other various references to his many friends in the sporting world when he's on ESPN's First Take morning program or breaking down the NBA on various other broadcasts.

"The light, the architecture, hanging out with visual artists -- there was so much discovery every time I came here,” he said by phone from London.

The HTC Droid DNA has one of the most impressive displays of any smartphone, but even that doesn't make up for some bothersome problems the device has. The Droid DNA falls into the category of jumbo-sized phones, but its 5-inch screen is different from the rest because it has 1080p full HD. It has 1,920 by 1,080 pixel resolution, and it also has a whopping 441 pixels per inch density. To put that in context, the iPhone has just a 326 ppi. Everything on this display is crisp and sharp.

Ecuadorean President Rafael Correa on Saturday dismissed as a "sham" a newly released video in which a Colombian rebel commander discusses contributing money to Correa's 2006 election campaign.

Mark O'Mara, Zimmerman's attorney, told the Orlando Sentinel that 67 compact discs of evidence had been turned over by prosecutors last week.

The Dockers "men of style" video advertising campaign is an all-boys club no more. Credit for cracking the khaki ceiling goes to Los Angeles-based author -- and authority on all things tomboy -- Lizzie Garrett Mettler. The brand's just-released first-ever "women of style" video (see below) shows the author of "Tomboy Style: Beyond the Boundaries of Fashion" sitting on her couch, digging through her closet and walking her dog while wearing a black, button-front shirt and black-colored khakis and talking about her affinity for wearing the pants.
