Angelina Jolie Enjoys Her Palm Pre Smartphone

The Palm Pre isn't officially available through Sprint just yet, but a handful of "beta testers" have been given pre-production models to use for the time being. One of these so-called beta testers is none other than Angelina Jolie.

The seductive actress has been using the Palm Pre smartphone for a little while and, by and large, she's been happy with the experience. How she manages to use a cell phone with all those children around here never ceases to amaze me. No word on how Brad feels about the Pre.

So, what does Angie have to say about the Pre. She likes the phone, according to a production assistant on the set of Salt. She likes the software better than the software on the iPhone, in fact, and she's a fan of the thumboard for the purposes of texting. Having a full QWERTY keyboard is nice, but she complains that the keys are too small.

In like manner, she thinks that the screen is absolutely beautiful, "but can too easily be scratched." That's what happens when you let your ankle-biters have at a beautiful piece of tech like that, Angelina.

The Examiner says that in between saving the world, Angelina Jolie is actually a huge gadget nerd and reads Gizmodo a lot! Now, she's probably reading on her brand new Palm Pre.

This is like third-hand info, but supposedly, Angelina spouted nonstop to a production assistant on the set of her upcoming film Salt about the Palm Pre: "She likes the software better than the iPhone, she likes the thumboard for texting (although the keys aren't big enough), and thinks the screen is beautiful but can be too easily scratched." So there you have it—Angelina Jolie thinks the Pre has better software, but the screen is scratchy, which matches up with earlier reports about the screen, actually.

Ms. Jolie, if you ever want to hit us with some more impressions or gadget insights, please do. We'd love to hear them. [Palm Pre]

Update: A Palm spokesperson is telling us that this may be false, and they didn't give a Pre to Angelina. Interesting.

Last fall, the Woodbine, Md., mother of three figured out a great way to get some: online giveaways. She has entered about 40 so far. She has won T-shirts, cleaning products, a small portable vacuum, olive oil, beef jerky and -- best of all -- a Nintendo DS on Web sites such as, and

"The lure of free stuff is quite appealing," she said. "I never considered myself a winner. I don't think I ever won bingo. My name was never drawn from a hat. However, I've been extraordinarily successful at the giveaways."

The recession has emboldened a certain kind of consumer: The mooch. With dwindling retirement savings, a higher cost of living and wobbly job market, they don't just want discounts on items they used to pay full price for without a second thought. They want freebi…


A RECENT NOR EASTER HIT THE NEW ENGLAND COAST AND AS THOUGHT THIS WRECK SURFACED AGAIN FROM ITS BURIED DEMISE--The skeleton only appears periodically - the last time was in 2013 - always after a significant coastal storm, and always attracting attention. Archaeological work conducted in 1980 indicated the wreck is a sloop of about Revolutionary War age. It is likely a “pinky,” a type of vessel with a high, narrow stern and square rigging easily maneuverable along the coast of Maine. Pinkies were popular as fishing and cargo vessels. The first sighting of the skeleton was in 1958, and then it has surfaced periodically right up to the present day - and usually after a good spring nor’easter. Word spread quickly about this sighting via social media, and people came over the weekend and on Monday as well. First, they had to navigate the seaweed- and rock-strewn streets of York Beach. They were also precluded from parking cars in most of the Ellis Park lot, which was buried under a layer …


I've always felt a special fascination for mosaics. From Roman tile compositions to current digital collages, I think they're an awesome artistic expression.
That's why I was so happy when I found Andreamosaic.
This tool enables you to create amazing mosaics from your digital pictures in a very easy way.
It requires having a large collection of photos to use as tiles, that's true. Fortunately the installation file already includes a pack of 500 sample photos that produce excellent results.
The program's interface is quite dull; in fact it's simply a gray window with too much text on it. But the mechanics are easy to understand so you'll be creating your own mosaics in no time!
Plus, the program includes a 20-page manual that explains everything thoroughly. Just remember that the more tiles you use, the longer it will take to generate the mosaic and the larger the final file will be.
