This seems to be a week of controversy and debate, be it something political like the saga of the Nobel Peace Prize winner, Liu Xiaobo, or something related to design like the new Gap logo. However, opinions and arguments aside, we have unearthed interesting things this week and spent some time dodging cars at a drifting rally, hanging out with Nikki Reed (aka Rosalie from Twilight) at the Swatch New Gents Collection Launch, sharing a quick word with Steven Alan over some plaid button downs and slim khakis, and talking everything sonic and tunes with contemporary motown sweetheart, Mayher Hawthorne. Of course, something we just can't get over from this week includes Dwight Howard's stunning performance with Ken Jeong which convinced us that fast don't lie, and a 13.2MP camera phone from Lumix. Check out a quick review of everything you should know for the first week of October, and stock up on a some conversation starters for the coming week.

Panasonic - LUMIX Phone

Is it a phone with a camera? Or is it a camera with a phone? With 13.2MP and a cerebral design aimed for those who enjoy picture taking, we are leaning more towards the latter description for the new Panasonic Lumix Phone.
