Samsung MV800 Camera Screen Flips Every Which Way

While people have been using their cellphones more and more for snapshots, it’s true that it’s hard to replace all of the capabilities of a dedicated camera with a smartphone. The new Samsung MV800 comes with a few distinguishing features, including a versatile flip screen, which makes it quite handy for taking shots of yourself and others.

Once Upon a Time S01E01 (ABC)

Once Upon a Time title card via Wikipedia

It comes to me as no surprise that another network has a fairytale-based show. NBC has Grimm and ABC has Once Upon a Time.

More money was injected into the ABC show. I like the ABC show a lot better. Grimm is more of a Supernatural/Buffy the Vampire Slayer clone. The main character in Grimm basically learns that he comes from a family of slayers. It’s kind of been done before. Once Upon a Time reminds me of The Neverending Story mixed in with some fairytales. It’s not something that I’ve seen before on network TV, and it’s kind of refreshing. Granted, some of the themes have been explored before, but it’s pretty decent, at least from the pilot.

Warning: spoilers ahead

Survivor South Pacific Trojan Horse S23E07 (CBS)

Ozzy comes up with this inane scheme of going to Redemption Island in order to take out Christine. It’s kind of stupid in my opinion, but Cochran, who’s blunder during the challenge once again made him a target, is happy to make this happen. I can appreciate gameplay, but this is a new level of stupid. Even if it works, it’s really insane. He also had to give his immunity idol to Cochran before he left. The smart thing would be if Ozzy was evicted the next time around. Naturally, there might be another 3 days before the merge, so he weakened his tribe and will have to play against one of his tribe mates during the duel. If it’s Cochran, it might be worthwhile, but still. I don’t think anyone else would have come up with this scheme. It’s way too risky.

Big Brother UK S12E56-57 (Channel 5)

It’s eviction time and I think that Faye will get evicted. She was one of the replacement nominees for Jem, who walked out of the BBUK house. A brand new vote started up when they were nominated.

Faye wakes up in a good mood. Faye and Aaron snuggle and kiss in bed. Tom says that out of all of the HM, he’ll miss Aaron the most. He’ll cry. Alex notices a hole in her shoe. Then she says that they are 2 sizes to small. Harry is flabbergasted. Why does she buy shoes that don’t fit? Alex says that she liked them.

Big Brother UK S12E55 (Channel 5)

Jem has been tossing and turning all night. She’s supposed to finally leave the BBUK house. Good riddance!

Harry is annoyed by the whole rigamarole. Lou wants her to stay.
