From "First Time Girls" To "First Wives Club," Protests Go Viral Prior To Election [Videos]

Women's issues move center-stage once again in the final stretch of this year's contentious Presidential campaigns -- mainly, due to Richard Mourdock's and Todd Akin's extreme views on women's rights.  On the left, the creative genius of HBO's hit comedy "Girls," Lena Dunham and 1960's pop icon Lesley Gore have released political ads that connect women of the 1960s to first-time female voters of 2012, which provided a needed counterpoint.

Lady Gaga Synthetic Leather Smartphone Pouch is Nothing Shocking

Put Your Money Where Your Tweet Is? Battleships, Horses & Bayonets, Oh My!

With the presidential election only 2 weeks out, both campaigns are fully cognizant of the impact of social media and how one meme can sway opinion within minutes of it being uttered. At no other time in U.S. history has the combination of messaging on TV and Twitter become so intertwined. However instead of paying the hefty fees of a TV ad, the presidential contenders incur less cost by purchasing Promoted Tweets and Trends, and ironically utilize the free medium of a TV debate to drive the traffic.

Can 'Romnesia' Be Used In 'Words With Friends?'

Words With Friends is a multi-player word game developed by Zynga. It's popularity got a boost from Alex Baldwin's infamous riff with a stewardess when he refused to turn off the game during take-off. Similar to the rules of Scrabble, players can choose to play with a friend or a random player found online. President Obama has chosen to play the game with undecided voters using a new word he coined this past week. . . called "Romnesia"

Attention Economy: Driver Behind Twitter's Acquisition of Video Firm Vine?

Remember the political rebuff “it’s the economy, stupid!” first coined by James Carville as a campaign strategy for Bill Clinton to use in his successful 1992 presidential campaign against incumbent president George H.W. Bush. Well, it's probably more applicable today then it was then, as evidenced by the vitriol spewing all over the current contentious presidential election campaigns.

Israeli Cartoon Bomb Explodes Virally In The United Nations

With Iran's nuclear capabilities escalating to an all-time high, it appears Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has built his very own bomb in retaliation. Except his high-octane ammunition was not of the world-annihilation kind. Identified as the "Bibi Bomb," named after the PM's nickname "Bibi," his explosive came in the form of a cartoonish drawing to illustrate what is perceived as Iran's probability to create an atomic weapon. Used as a prop at the UN General Assembly this past week,  it was seen as Israel's first preemptive salvo launched at its number-one enemy, Iran.

Calling Out Apple: The iPhone 5 is NOT “The World's Thinnest Smartphone"

Apple CEO Tim Cook and Phil Schiller, Apple's senior VP of worldwide marketing, may have wowed the faithful at the iPhone 5 keynote kickoff on September 12th but not all of the stats the suits were trumpeting stand up to scrutiny.

Japanese Gulag For Social Media Activist Michael Q.Todd Spotlights Deportation Practices

His bio reads, "I aim to connect and promote great people who will make a difference by collaborating than individually. . . and my goals are eradication of poverty and a sustainable economy by 2015." One of his fervent passions and ongoing initiatives is to help save the Taiji dolphins from captivity and slaughter. Doesn't sound like a candidate for Japan's harsh immigration-and-detention system, does it? Yet Michael Q. Todd found himself taken into custody in the Shingu Jail on September 16h for a lapsed visa. 

Jon Stewart vs Bill O'Reilly To Beat The Obama-Romney Debates?

He's done it before. Back in 2010 when the Tea Party Republcans helped overtake the majority in the House of Representatives, Comedy Central's Jon Stewart jumped into the debate ring with his co-faux newscaster collaborator, Stephen Colbert. Touted as the "Rally to Restore Sanity And/Or Fear," the event was well attended in DC. This go-around Stewart has targeted Bill O'Reilly, the Fox News talk-show host to help iron out some of the pressing issues of this year's presidential election campaign.
