Less than 10 months after the Twitter-owned social video app made its debut in January 2013 (it showed up on Android in June), Vine officially comes to Windows Phone. The app showed up in the app store on Tuesday, following announcements on Vine's blog and the Windows Phone blog.
From party anthems "Party in the U.S.A." and "Circus" to baby-makers "Pieces of Me" and "Beautiful Surprise" to tearjerkers "Grenade" and "Bittersweet," No. 1-selling, Grammy-nominated producer Claude Kelly can really create or enhance a mood through music. He does this by getting to know his artists and inspiring them in the studio with evocative movies.

When I first heard about Steve Aoki in the mid- to late 1990s, from friends of mine (colleagues of his) at UC Santa Barbara, the future mixologist to the stars was simply described as the son of Benihana founder Rocky Aoki and the brother of supermodel Devon Aoki, who threw great parties at his Isla Vista apartment, popularly known as the Pickle Patch. The festivities have expanded, taking Aoki around the world and bringing him incredible opportunities such as collaborations with DJs Armand Van Helden, Tiesto, and Diplo, and remixing for Kanye West, Drake, and Robin Thicke.

The most coveted phone today (at least for iOS users) is undoubtedly the iPhone 5S gold (I just ordered mine, and it's on three weeks' back order!). The most coveted award in Hollywood today remains that gold-plated Oscar. While actor and Thirty Seconds to Mars front man Jared Leto doesn't have either, that'll certainly change in a few months. I predict a Best Supporting Actor win in his future for his credible, Gotham Independent Film Award-winning portrayal of HIV-positive transgender woman Rayon in "Dallas Buyers Club."

When consumers said "The blacker the berry, the sweeter the juice," they sure weren't talking about apps. With far fewer applications at their fingertips than iOS, Android, and Windows phone users, BlackBerry aficionados, who just can't do away with the much-prized keyboard, are missing out on much of the latest and greatest in mobile software. Former Guns N' Roses and Velvet Revolver bassist -- currently with Walking Papers -- Duff McKagan is one of the loyalists who's unwilling to give his device its walking papers.
Speaking of Walking Papers, the rock quartet's self-titled debut … Read more
Tuesday at Nokia World, Nokia announced that a few of the most popular apps from iOS and Android -- Flipboard, Instagram, and Vine -- are at last coming to Windows Phone.
In total, Nokia showed off 23 new apps that are coming to Windows Phone.

DreamWorks' new game for the Nokia Lumia 2520 tablet may be based around its film "How to Train Your Dragon," but it might as well be called "How to Train Your Children To Take Long Car Rides."
Starting Tuesday, Dragon's Adventure, as the game is called, puts Nokia's Here maps and existing augmented reality software to clever use by building gameplay around the morning commute, or really any road trip or drive.
DreamWorks Animation's film "How To Tame Your Dragon" supplies familiar taloned characters for young kids, aged approximately 7 to … Read more
What do a dark, claustrophobic maze, an animated 3D thrill ride, and a corpse-laden haunted house have in common? They're all part of horror maestro Rob Zombie's Great American Nightmare. Taking place every Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday from October 10 to November 2, at Pomona, California's Fearplex, this Halloween extravaganza combines state-of-the-art scares with outdoor horror movie screenings and a much-anticipated music festival, including a last-night headlining performance by Zombie himself.
