iPhones for Everybody?

Apple unveiled a faster, more powerful version of its popular iPhone Monday, but the bigger news is that the company slashed the price of the current model to $99.

Obama Picks Lakers in 6

Dress the White House in purple and gold, the president is backing Los Angeles in the NBA finals. It’s probably because of his uncommonly good taste and high basketball IQ, but it could also have something to do with the 39 percentage points by which he won Los Angeles in the presidential election.

Fresh off a fundraising stop in Las Vegas, where he made an appearance at Caesars Palace, President Barack Obama swung through Hollywood Wednesday evening to pitch woo to a star-studded crowd for the first time since taking office—but, as The Wrap’s Dominic Patten points out, it was a bit of a tough crowd this time around.

A royal chauffeur was suspended by Buckingham Palace on Monday after he allegedly allowed access to the queen’s fleet of official cars to tabloid reporters of the News World Press. It was the latest in a series of royal security breaches that famously include the intrusion of a man dressed as Osama bin Laden at Prince William’s birthday party and, creepier, in 1982 when a man broke into the queen’s room to watch her sleep.
