As of last week, tech companies are having a hey day (or rather, a hey week) with a rattle of new initiatives designed and promised to change our lives. First, Google decides that talk, mail and search will no long be sufficient in its quest for power over the world of binaries, and ventured into fashion with celebrities and famed bloggers in tow with Boutique.com. And prior to that, facebook revamped its messaging system and is determined to revolutionize the way people communicate and socialize online (as if they haven't already done that!). Then, in comes a 17-year old girl from Queens who has resolved one of the biggest issues people are having with the Apple iPhone 4 now, code named "Where Is The White iPhone 4?". Other things include a very Beatles revival on iTunes, a car than is like a tree from Mercedes Benz and Jay-Z swapping the Madison Square Garden for the New York Public Library as a stage for once. All in all, a prosperous and fruitful week, especially for those who managed to get their mittens on the insta-sold-out Lanvin x H&M collaboration this past Saturday.

White iPhone 4 DIY Conversion Kit

Why leave the power up to the conglomerates when people can take the power into their own hands? Who says we have to wait for Apple's endless fixes and trust in their vague promises to schedule our ownership of the iPhone 4? With a new DIY conversion kit, you no longer have to wait to enjoy a crisp, heavenly white dress on the iPhone 4.

Technology Updates

After The Beatles greatest tunes have been digitally remastered and re-released, songs like "Help!" and "Yellow Submarine" can now be purchased and downloaded off iTunes; on another note, Google is now fashion savvy with a new site, Boutiques.com and a load of well-dressed, Alexander Wang-clad friends in tow; last but not least, for those who have yet to get their facebook email account, the time to act is now.
