Video: Willow Smith vs. Sesame Street - Whip My Hair (Fraggle Roc Nation Remix)


The video was made by Joey Mazzariono, head writer at
Sesame Street
for his adopted daughter Segi from
 Ethiopia. He noticed that his daughter started having problems while playing with Barbie Dolls and the reason was that she wanted long straight and blond hair that she could bounce around.





This video has struck a chord with African-American women and the video has already crossed 402,141 views and counting.





The TV writer isn't the first to tackle the taboo topic. Comedian Chris Rock made a documentary titled Good Hair in 2009 after his five-year-old daughter asked him, "'Daddy, how come I don't have good hair?" The film is about the $9 billion black hair business.

Video: Harry Potter Deathly Hallows

It stands to reason that in the Summer of the Sequel, what passes for the standout cinematic release of the season is a trailer. For a sequel.

But when the promo is for "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows" (which will arrive in two parts, in November and next July) the click frenzy is understandable: For people who were 10 or 11 in 2001, when the first "Harry Potter" movie came out, the trailer arrives as bittersweet confirmation of the inevitable end of their youth.
"Harry Potter, the boy who lived -- come to die," Voldemort intones as the just-released trailer opens. That shiver you feel is an era passing. The Potter kids may not be facing death, but as young adults they confront a confounding and uncertain future. By next summer, when the series finally ends after eight installments, just maybe they will have begun to discover some of their own powers.
The trailer bills "Deathly Hallows" as "The Motion Picture Event of a Generation." For once, we believe the hype.

How Facetime 'Video Calling' works on the Apple iPhone 4

Here's a quick summary on how Facetime works on the iPhone 4. Steve Jobs said that this was his childhood ream. This is what people have been watching in sci-fi movies all along. The ability to talk to each other which seeing each other's faces. Now this has become a reality and the ability to do what is know as Facetime Video Calling according to Apple is now a reality.


This post is not a look at the technical specifications but rather on just how it works. 


Firstly Facetime works right out of the box and there is no set-up needed. So if you want to start a video call with your friends, find your friend in your contacts list and just tap the Facetime button. If your all ready on a voice call and you want to shift to Facetime. Just tap the Facetime button on your screen.Once you do that an invitation pops up on your friends screen asking if they would like to join you in a video chat. If your pal clicks yes it starts working. You can also choose portrait and landscape mode.


The iPhone 4 has two cameras. One on the front above the display and one on the back next to the LED flash. The front camera has been tuned to be used for Video calling and must be held at arms length to present you in the best possible light.


During your Facetime call you can also use the back camera to share what you see.Tap a button and the phone switches to take back camera and you can share what your seeing right now. Tap a button again and it switches to the front camera. So if you on safari and a lion comes into view. Tap a button and the back camera comes on and you can share the live images with your friends. Allowing them to see what your seeing in real time.


The pic below is Apple's illustration on how this works. Talk with your friend and share your son blowing out the birthday candles in real-time.
