  • Tyga Addresses Kylie Jenner Dating Rumors and Drake Feud

    Are they or aren't they? Tyga says Kylie Jenner got a sneak peek of the vibrant metallic kicks he just unveiled through his partnership with L.A. Gear, but he played coy when asked whether that’s because the two are dating. “Yea, she's seen … I actually showed her some,” he shared with ETonline. “She likes them.” While the 25-year-old wouldn’t confirm which color the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star would rock, he did make note that the shoes come in both red and black – and based off the little red dress and black bikini she posted photos in this week, those are clearly Kylie’s favorite shades. RELATED: Tyga Says Kylie Jenner Captured His Heart! So, are Tyga and Kylie dating? “We're friends and that's all I really want to talk about right now,” Tyga said at the launch of his L.A. Gear “Liquid Gold” sneaker on Tuesday at Sheikh Shoes in Hollywood. Tyga has been working with the shoe brand for months. In fact, Kylie accompanied him to L.A. Gear’s Teen Impact Christmas Party for Pediatric Cancer Patients last December. WireImage “We did a children's hospital visit and we brought gifts out to the kids … gave away shoes, headphones, and it's just good. We could have just sent stuff but it’s good to be there,“ he gushed. “You get to see the smiles on their face and how happy they are … not even for the gifts but having someone visit them -- people that they look up to.” Kylie Jenner to release debut single 'Forever Real' ft. Iggy Azalea and Tyga? PLEASE YES: http://t.co/9XkjDnhhvX pic.twitter.com/7pL0egfrBG— Sugarscape (@sugarscape) March 24, 2015 As for the rumor that Kylie will be appearing on a song with him and Iggy Azalea? Tyga denies the report, blaming the chatter on a fake photo that went viral. “Not true,” he confirms. “Photoshop, man ... crazy kids, you know, they’re bored.” VIDEO: Kim Kardashian Took North West on the Cutest Easter Egg Hunt! Tyga, who is close with the Kardashian clan, says the jokes made about Bruce Jenner at Justin Bieber’s Comedy Central roast that aired Monday night were told in jest. “I think it's Comedy Central and it's fun, it's all jokes. Justin doing that is good ‘cause it shows how down to earth and a real person and relatable he is, I think it was fun.” VIDEO: Justin Bieber Apologizes to Fans During His Comedy Central Roast Tyga is currently trying to put the finishing touches on his highly-anticipated upcoming album, The Gold Album. “I'm still working on it right now,” he says. “It's like you go through one phase where this is the sound you want to do and then two months later you want a whole other sound … I keep switching sounds up so once I stop being so creative and can actually put it out -- it could be next week, it could be in a month.” ETONLINE The singer also clarified remarks he made about his label, Cash Money Records, and label-mate, Drake. In an interview with Vibe last October he said, “I tend to distance myself from them … I don’t really get along with Drake. I don’t really get along with Nicki,” adding, “I don’t like Drake as a person. He’s just fake to me.” That same month he tweeted, “Gold album been done. my label holding me hostage so i can't release nothing. might just leak it for my fans then let them make $ off it.” Gold album been done. my label holding me hostage so i can't release nothing. might just leak it for my fans then let them make $ off it.— T-Raww (@Tyga) October 10, 2014 @instatyga not for long.— T-Raww (@Tyga) October 10, 2014 But the artist, who also went on a full Twitter tirade against Cash Money last fall, tells ETonline all is fine with the label and its other artists. “We’re all signed to the same label … it was just situations within the label that I was trying to get out so I could clear my music but it had nothing to do with them as artists.” The “40 Mil” rapper is also focusing his time on his creative work with L.A. Gear. “I’m creative … I wanted to do something that related to home. Just that old school era, that retro era, that’s what’s coming back right now,” he explained. “For my generation it’s all about the retro colors, that whole creative vibe. And I wanted it to be like home, like L.A.” For more details on Tyga’s L.A. Gear shoes, click here. What do you think? Are Tyga and Kylie really just friends?

  • It can’t be promising when Amazon has to confirm that Amazon Dash isn’t a joke

    Amazon, always one to push the envelope, took the wraps off of Amazon Dash yesterday. In case you missed it, the latest addition to Amazon’s growing product lineup is a series of oval buttons stamped with the logo of a particular household item that tends to need replenishing on a frequent basis. For instance, say you’re running low on Tide. Instead of making a mental note to buy more detergent, you can simply press the button on your Tide Amazon Dash widget whereupon it will send a message, via Wi-Fi, to your Amazon mobile shopping app confirming that  an order has been placed.

    The Verge q

    They don’t have what has become a crucial service for participation in modern society: internet service at home. The proportion of households with internet service had been rising steadily for decades, according to the Pew Research Center, until the past few years when the adoption rate slowed. This story was published by The Center for Public Integrity, a nonprofit, nonpartisan investigative news organization in Washington, DC. A Center for Public Integrity analysis of internet prices in five US cities and five comparable French cities found that prices in the US were as much as 3.5 times higher than those in France for similar service.
