Kim Wayans Writes Children's Books, Reads Amazon Kindle

It's hard to forget Kim Wayans's hilarious impersonations of everyone from Oprah Winfrey to Whitney Houston and Tracy Chapman, and her original characters like Bonita Butrell and Reesie Mayweather. With those characters, Wayans became one of the brightest stars on the hilarious early-'90s sketch comedy show 'In Living Color' along with other members of her famous comedy-showbiz family. (That's K...

Fashion Week on Twitter Gives You Front-Row Coverage, in Real Time

Skip the lines, the hassle, the irritated guest list protectors, the paparazzi, the underfed and the overdressed. Fashion Week in New York is a rollicking good time, as long as you aren't actually there. Thanks to Twitter, though, blooming fashionistas don't actually have to show up. Media outlets ranging from Racked.com to the New York Times have finally started to use the micro-blogging site ...

Newest 'Two and a Half Men' Regular Uses Un-Hollywood PC and Pre

Unless you're a big fan of 'Two and a Half Men,' you probably haven't heard of Jennifer Taylor (pictured). But if you're one of the millions of viewers who watch the hit Monday night sitcom on CBS, or on countless local stations in syndication, then you probably know that Taylor plays Chelsea, Charlie Sheen's sometime girlfriend (and now fiancee). Next Monday (9/21), Taylor will reprise that ro...

Rob Zombie Hates Your Cell Phone

Perhaps it should come as no surprise that Rob Zombie--rock star, screenwriter, film director, gore-fetishist--has little free time for messing around with all the electronic goodies the rest of us take for granted. But we get it. After all, his latest film, a remake of the classic slasher flick 'Halloween II,' only began filming in late February and yet barely six months later is already in th...

Australian Rock Band Jet Collaborates Online, Loves YouTube

Recently, Aussie garage band Jet answered some of our questions about texting, YouTubing, and touring. When brothers Nic and Chris Chester, along with bandmates Cameron Muncey and Mark Wilson aren't on the road, they are either listening to Hall & Oates (so are we!) on their iPods at 5 o'clock in the morning or cracking up to old videos of a toasted Orson Welles. The boys, clad in leather j...

Antonio Sabato Jr. Loves Women, Facebook, and iPhones

A handsome man searching for true love swims to shore, finding a beach with twelve anxious ladies hoping he will pick one to be his paramour. No, this isn't a soap opera episode; instead, it's the premise for the television hunk Antonio Sabato, Jr.'s new reality TV series, 'My Antonio.' Airing on VH1 on Sundays (and repeated throughout the week), the series has all the makings of classic drama:...

Greg Grunberg's Secret HDTV Viewing Habits (and New iPhone App)

Like Heather Locklear of 'Dynasty,' 'TJ Hooker,' 'Melrose Place' and 'Spin City' fame, Greg Grunberg is one of those actors fortunate to have starred in three back-to-back hit series. His first big roles came in the J.J.-Abrams-produced 'Felicity' and 'Alias,' but now he is best known for the NBC show 'Heroes,' in which he plays Matt Parkman, a policeman who can hear what other people are think...

When Not Holding a Mic, 'Idol' Brooke White Holds a Wii-Mote

'American Idol' finalist (Season 7) Brooke White may take her inspiration from the past -- sweeping national audiences (and Simon and Randy) off their feet with her knock-out renditions of Beatles and Carly Simon tunes on TV last season -- but she's firmly in the present when it comes to technology. White tweets, texts, and plays Wii, among many other gadget-oriented activities. Just a week aft...

Michael Ian Black Has Some Gadget Issues

Comedian Michael Ian Black is perhaps best known for his work on 'The State,' the early '90s MTV sketch comedy show that also launched the careers of director David Wain ('Role Models'), comedian Ken Marino ('Party Down'), and Michael Showalter ('Stella'). Fans of that show are rejoicing, because 'The State' just came out on DVD -- good timing considering Black this month debuted a new comedy s...

Celebrity BlackBerry Addicts, Part Deux

Between having their tweets ghostwritten and hocking us digital cameras about which they know absolutely nothing, it's clear that today's modern celebrity is in love with technology. One thing they're often photographed with -- besides bottom-feeding hangers-on -- is the BlackBerry. Even our commander-in-chief can't keep his Crackberry jones hidden from the public eye. From A-list to Z-list, che...

10 Video Games That Should Be Made Into Movies

Video games rarely make a successful transition to the big screen. Most are box-office bombs, and game fans lambaste every shot, frame, and scene via blogs and message boards. They can't bear to see something they love turned into an unrecognizable disaster starring Jean-Claude Van Damme ('Street Fighter,' anyone?). So why does Hollywood keep churning them out? Simple. Gamers comprise an ext...

MC Hammer Talks iPhones, Twitter, and Web-Induced Unrest in Iran

Early this month, a huge group of dancers wearing Hammer Pants stormed a trendy store in Los Angeles and grooved their way to viral video stardom. In one flashmob, MC Hammer was back -- in a big way (although in our eyes, he never left). The '90s rapper and dancer now has his own TV show ('Hammertime,' Sundays at 10 PM EST on A&E) and is well on the way to Internet mogul-status, thanks to h...

Dresden Dolls' Amanda Palmer Talks Tech, Teens, and Tweeting

Amanda Palmer -- half of the virulently successful Dresden Dolls, equal parts blogger, YouTube-fanatic, and Twitter-community-organizer, and altogether musician extraordinaire -- allowed Switched to pick her brain on technology, music, and Tweeting on Friday nights. Palmer, who is most famous for playing the piano (punk-cabaret style), has a rabid Twitter fan base, pens an exhaustive blog, and ...

Twitter's Funniest Folks

Twitter has a 140-character limit on its tweets, which makes it a perfect forum for comedians to distribute jokes, one-liners, and pithy commentary to their fans and anyone who wants a laugh. Here are eleven funny folks who are making the most of the ridiculously popular microblogging service....

Oprah's Favorite Tech Things

There's no doubt about it, Oprah loves technology. It seems as though every time we catch her show, Winfrey has another cool gadget in her hand. One thing's for sure: Whatever Oprah likes, Oprah hypes, which means that everything from high-def refrigerators to e-book readers have received a significant boost from the queen of talk's coverage. After the jump below, you can check out our round-up ...
