Hacked Nude Photos Of Kim Kardashian, Kaley Cuoco and Vanessa Hudgens Appear Online – following on from earlier leaks new photos have just appeared that seem to be showing nude images of KIm Kardashian, Kaley Cuoco and Vanessa Hudgens as well as several other celebrities.

The intimate photos appeared on photo posting site 4chan as well as on Reddit, but the images on Reddit seem to have been deleted, whether as a result of legal requests or as a result of the social networking and entertainment site’s stricter posting rules.

It will not only make celebrities whose images have been posted a little embarrassed, celebrities who have taken nude photos that have not yet surfaced very nervous, but also prove more than a little embarrassing for the people behind the security of Apple’s iCloud storage service.

The iCloud service opening statement says “Everything you love, everywhere you go” for some of these celebrities that is beginning to look more like, everything you love, everywhere!

To be fair to Apple the security of a service like iCloud is reliant on the user being vigilant and not picking either a password that anyone with a little knowledge of their Twitter or Facebook account could take a guess at, nor having been shared around a bunch of people or not being a duplicate of that used on a less secure site.  Read the rest of this entry »

Is GTA V Character Lacey Jonas Really Based On Lindsay Lohan? – What’s Hot and What’s Trending 27 August 2014

GTA V's Lacey Jonas - Lohan, Upton or Welinder?

GTA V’s Lacey Jonas – Lohan, Upton or Welinder?

Is GTA V Character Lacey Jonas Really Based On Lindsay Lohan? – the case was rumoured by several people late last year but now court papers released in NY yesterday confirm that Lindsay Lohan is suing the makers of Grand Theft Auto V claiming that the game’s Lacey Jonas is based on her.

The case was brought to court last month with Lohan claiming that the character of Lacey Jonas is based on her voice, image and style. Take Two Interactive Software and subsidiary company Rockstar Games are claiming that the only resemblance between Jones and Lohan is that they are both young blonde women.

GTA’s Wiki entry for Lacey Jonas states that she is a famous actress and a minor character in the game, who appears in the game event Escape Paparazzi. Jonas is seen to frequent a hotel which is said to strongly resemble the Chateau Marmont on Sunset Boulevard. This is of course the hotel that wrote Lohan a letter in July 2012 pointing out that she owed them over $46k from the time she had stayed at the hotel’s Suite 33 for several weeks.

Benedict Cumberbatch To Play Shakespeare’s Richard III on BBC – What’s Hot and What’s Trending 6 April 2014

Benedict Cumberbatch To Play Shakespeare’s Richard III on BBC –  despite having one of the busiest schedules of any British actor Benedict Cumberbatch is making space to play one of Shakespeare’s most difficult and iconic roles.

Just days after his Sherlock co-star Martin Freeman was announced as playing exactly the same role in a Trafalgar Studios production of the play in the West End in July this year, Benedict has been named as the title role in the BBC2 production of the play. The production will be part of the BBC’s 2nd series of History Plays and the production is to be directed by Dominic Cooke who has a wealth of experience with Shakespearean productions and who previously directed comedian Lenny Henry in the Royal National Theatre’s 2011 production of The Comedy of Errors.

No dates have been given yet for either the filming or the broadcast of the new BBC production but as we all know Benedict is incredibly busy at the moment and we would not be surprised if the rest of the cast have to fit around what few gaps there are in his diary, Let’s not forget that both he and Martin Freeman have to find plenty of time to film the next few episodes of Sherlock in time for Christmas this year.

Sexy Snapchat Selfies Might Not Be Secure – What’s Hot and What’s Trending 28 December 2013

Snapchat logo- sexy selfies app

Sexy Snapchat Selfies Might Not Be Secure – it looks as though the Snapchat app, used by many to send sexy selfies, may not be as secure a platform as they might wish.

It has been very much a mixed week for the people from Snapchat. One the plus side a UK academic study has found that nearly all teenagers here in the UK regard Facebook as ‘dead and buried’ and have moved over to using Snapchat, Twitter and Whatsapp for their main social media needs. Many still keep their Facebook profiles going but just to contact brothers and sisters who are at university and for little else.

It appears the main reason behind teenagers abandoning their Facebook accounts is the fact that their parents are now using the site and in many cases it is a good way for them to monitor what is going on in their child’s life outside the family home. Also it is not too cool to use the same social media platform as your parents. It is much the same as not wanting to drink in the same bar as your parents.

For anyone not aware of Snapchat, it is an app that is used to send photos, videos, drawings and text messages to one or more selected recipients.One of its main uses however has been to send ‘sexy selfies’ and this is because one feature of Snapchat is that the user can set a time limit for how long any video or photo they send can be viewed on the recipient’s device. This time limit for viewing can currently be set anywhere between 1 and 10 seconds and so the app is seen as perfect for sending a tease photo. Read the rest of this entry »

Britney May Have Got Some Digital Help For Work Bitch Video – What’s Hot and What’s Trending 14 October 2013

After

Britney May Have Got Some Digital Help For Work Bitch Video –  the singer has been getting some great reviews for her new single, Work Bitch, but some images released from the studio behind her new video seem to suggest that she may have received some digital assistance to look so good.

Britney and director Ben Mor worked with the HOAX Films digital production studio on the video’s visual effects and some shots released by HOAX seem to show that the singer looked quite a lot slimmer in the edited shots than she did in the original photos from the set.

Part of the brief for HOAX was apparently to provide sky shots as well as ‘clean up.’ This sounds quite a lot like the video version of airbrushing that goes on with magazine photos of celebrities and models.

The ‘before’ shot of Britney is one of several released by the HOAX Studio last week that was later withdrawn following much discussion on Twitter and other social media sites.

Even though anyone who has seen Britney in recent weeks could not deny that she is in great shape and looks better than she has in a few years, she looks thinner in some of the video shots than she has appeared before or looks now. Read the rest of this entry »

Photos Posted Of Victoria Beckham Laughing And Smiling – What’s Hot and What’s Trending 24 June 2013

Photos Posted Of Victoria Beckham Laughing And Smiling – it seemed to many as likely to be photographed as a shot of the Loch Ness monster having a swim or the Yeti on walkabout but yes there really is a photo of Victoria Beckham smiling.

The singer turned top international fashion designer is well-known for adopting a strange slightly grumpy looking pout when she spots a photographer within range but as you might expect it is her husband David who is the one to catch that elusive photo.

She and David are in China at the moment where she is launching her latest range of fashion designs. They appeared together on a special show which they presented on China’s Central Television network. Although Victoria is promoting her Autumn/Winter 2013 line David is on a goodwill tour of China to promote football. He is a huge star in the Far East and here at WHWTN we saw last year the impact of the Beckham phenomenon first hand when in an out-of-the-way part of Vietnam we saw a small photo and football jersey shrine to the former Manchester Utd, LA Galaxy, Real Madrid, Milan, Paris Saint-Germain and England footballer. Although some may think there have been better footballers there can be little argument that he is the most commercially successful footballer of all. Read the rest of this entry »

40th Anniversary Of First Mobile Phone Call – What’s Hot and What’s Trending 03 April 2013

World's First Mobile Phone.

World’s First Mobile Phone.

40th Anniversary Of First Mobile Phone Call – today, 03 April, marks the 40th anniversary of the first ever mobile phone call.

On 03 April 1973 Martin Cooper, a senior engineer working at Motorola, stood outside the Hilton Hotel in Manhattan and dialled the number of Joel Engel, the Head of research at Bell Laboratories. The phone used to make this historic call was a prototype version of the Motorola Dyna-Tac.

In case you are wondering what Martin Cooper said in that first ever mobile phone call back in 1973 he is what he said as reported by him to the BBC in 2003: “Joel, I’m calling you from a ‘real’ cellular telephone. A portable handheld telephone.”

The phone used by Cooper would not be viewed as being that “mobile” these days as it weighed around 2.5lbs and its dimensions were 9 x 5 x 1.75 inches. It offered just 30m of talktime  and 8hrs of standby after a battery charge of 10hrs so for many people would not offer enough firepower to even get them to work. Read the rest of this entry »
