McCartney Wedding, Windows 8, Sell-by Dates, Scarlett Johansson Naked Photos Leak – What’s Hot and What’s Trending 15 September 2011

15 Sep

McCartney wedding – rumours are rife that Paul McCartney and long-term girlfriend Nancy Shevell are to be married in the very near future.

It is believed that the couple intend to marry at Sir Paul’s farmhouse in Peasmarsh, outside Rye in Sussex. The couple’s friends are said to be on standby for a ceremony in the next few weeks. They have already chosen their wedding rings from celebrity jeweller Neil Lane in Los Angeles.

People have already seen chairs and boxes of champagne flutes arriving at the farmhouse ahead of the celebrations and it is expected to be a restrained affair in contrast to the media circus surrounding Sir Paul’s last wedding to Heather Mills.

After the ceremony in the UK it is thought the couple will fly back to the US for a party at their home in the Hamptons to celebrate with Nancy’s family and all of their American friends.

We are sure that everyone knows that this will be Sir Paul’s third marriage and we all hope that this is more like his first marriage than his second!

Windows 8 – Microsoft has been releasing details of its next generation operating system known at the moment as Windows 8. The new operating system will be able to run on the low power ARM designed processors for the first time.

Windows 8 has also been designed to run on new style tablet computers as well as conventional computers. Although we do not yet know the name of the desktop/laptop version of the new operating system, Windows 8 for tablet computers is to be known as Metro.

Having the new Windows 8 operating system able to run on their low power processors will be a huge boost for the Cambridge based ARM Holdings. ARM Holdings PLC shares which were trading at 480p back on 18 August are currently trading 609p (up 6.5p today).

Having the new operating system able to run on devices other than traditional laptops and desktops is seen as a vital step for Microsoft as the market for traditional computing continues to be eroded. More and more people are now accessing the Internet using tablets and smartphones, all of which are capable of providing good quality sound and video these days.

Microsoft have said that Windows 8 will focus on applications for the first time and will feature a graphical home page to take users directly to apps like Facebook. The operating system is also expected to feature an app store much the same as those found on smartphones. You can see the new look home screen on the graphic shown with this article.

The new operating system is expected to be formally released some time between July and December next year.

Sell-by dates axed – the Government has announced today that it is to remove the need for “sell-by dates” to appear on food packaging. The move is being introduced in a bid to stop the estimated £12 billion of food which is wasted every year in the UK.

It is hoped that the move will simplify the current food packaging rules in this country with the “display until” labels being removed as well as “sell-by”. This will mean that consumers will now just have “use by” and “best before” labels to consider when doing their food shopping.

“Use by” labels will be used on foods such as soft cheeses and fish where the food could be unsafe to eat after the date shown. “Best before” labels will be used on foods such as crisps, biscuits and tinned foods where the product will still be quite safe to eat but will no longer be at its best.

The Waste and Resources Action Programme (WRAP), who produced the new guidelines in consultation with the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA), have estimated that 5.3 million tonnes of  perfectly edible food is thrown away every year in the UK.

To put this into context it is thought that the average UK household is throwing away £680 of perfectly good food every year. I am sure that we could all think of a better use for £680 than throwing it into the bin.

Scarlett Johansson – the curvy US actress and singer has called in the FBI after naked pictures of her appeared on the Internet.

Scarlett is shown lying topless in bed in one of the shots with the other photo showing her in the mirror taking a photo of herself in which you can see her backside. No official confirmation of the photos being of Scarlett has yet appeared although the fact that she has called in the FBI would seem to prove that the photos are genuine.

Scarlett is just the latest celebrity to have private naked photos of themselves appear online. Rihanna, Miley Cyrus and Jessica Alba have all reported nude photo leaks to the FBI.

Scarlett is well-known here for her appearances in such movies as Lost In Translation, Girl With A Pearl Earring, Vicky Cristina Barcelona and Iron Man 2.

She has been seen in recent days filming around New York City for her latest part in the movie The Avengers. The film is expected to be released in the US in May next year and at present it is estimated to cost some $150 million to make. As well as Scarlett The Avengers features Robert Downey Jr., Samuel L. Jackson and Mark Ruffalo.

The moral of this story is that if you are famous and take any sort of naked photo of yourself on your phone, there is a very good chance that someone, somewhere, at sometime will hack your phone and your private shots will be uploaded for all to see. As far as Scarlett is concerned if you look that good with your clothes off and have already shown some semi-nude shots in the past then why worry?
