Texan model/designer Erin Wasson discusses her clothing range on the YouTube channel of New York magazine 'Nylon'. Wasson says, "The people with the best style for me are the people who are the poorest.

Cut The Chaser?

British distributors of 'The Chaser', the "moody Asian action thriller", have performed a feat of self-defeating publicity.

It's the gPhone!

It's no surprise that leaked pictures of Google's G1, the search engine's answer to the iPhone, have surfaced online (see the pictures here) . Due to be formally announced today in New York with T-Mobile, the handset, dubbed the gPhone, looks set to feature all of the jiggery-pokery of Apple's alternative, including GPS and a touchscreen, but with a smarter operating system (Android) and a qwerty keyboard hidden under the screen. In the shops by Christmas for around £100.
