David Gray Talks iPhones, Downloading, and the Music Industry's Failures

English singer-songwriter David Gray sat down with us to talk tech. Though he's made the giant leap into modernity by using an iPhone, he's only recently started downloading music. Sometimes the uninitiated often have the clearest perspectives, and all the downloading led to an epiphany: "you can get any piece of music, any time, anywhere." He goes on to rail a bit on the music industry's failed...

Comedian Frank Caliendo Does 'Street Fighter' Impressions

You may know him primarily for his work as John Madden, Andy Rooney, or one of a hundred other well-known celebrities, but master impressionist and comedian Frank Caliendo recently shed those facades for a rare moment of (somewhat) serious gadget and video games talk. The man of infinite voices told us (in more than one voice, including those of 'Street Fighter' characters) that he juggles his...

The Fray's Dave Welsh Is a Mac Man All the Way

If you've glanced at the Billboard charts, Rolling Stone magazine, or your little sister's iPod over the past few years, you're bound to have seen the name: The Fray. Fronted by the piano-caressing crooner Isaac Slade, this Denver, Colorado four-piece has brought the mellow sounds of Coldplay and U2 back across the pond to great popular acclaim; since its debut in February, the band's most...

Stewart Copeland Double-Fists the BlackBerry and the iPhone

Forever known for his role as the steady hand driving the Police's white-boy reggae (and the lanky American whose surfer-dude demeanor buoyed Sting's British flamboyance), Stewart Copeland has earned his place in the pantheon of pop music. Since those halcyon days, he hasn't exactly retired to the couch, having shared the stage with artists ranging from neo-proggers Oysterhead to alt. rock...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

'King of Queens' Actor Gary Valentine on Filming for the Web

In case you didn't catch his special on 'Comedy Central Presents,' you might know Gary Valentine from TV's 'King of Queens,' or from his slew of appearances on the big screen, including 'Paul Blart: Mall Cop' and 'Stuck on You.' Now, the older brother of Kevin James is taking his comedy to the Web with a new series on Crackle called 'Dusty Peacock.' We recently caught up with the actor and...

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...

'Generation Kill' Dreamboat Kellan Lutz Talks Cell Phones

Kellan Lutz, object of adolescent girls' desire and actor in multiple teen moo-vies, is about to get some street cred. The 19-year-old North Dakota native can be seen on the awesome HBO miniseries 'Generation Kill,' the latest project by the creators of our longtime addiction 'The Wire.' Boy's been busy breaking the hearts of middle American youths and shooting the CW's new 90210, but he still...
