Filed under: Britney SpearsBusiness BlitzFoodGIFs

no thank you

Back in 2001, Britney Spears struck up a HUGE $8 million deal with Pepsi and made some of the greatest soda commercials mankind has ever seen!

However, the picture marriage eventually came to an end with they found out the pop singer had eyes lips for their main competitor in Coca-Cola and they split for good!

Well it sounds like she has officially moved to the warm embrace of Coke's arms, and it's been working out pretty well for her financially!

According to her investment portfolio (which was somehow uncovered during her conservatorship case), Brit Brit has invested some serious dough into

Microsoft Gets Geeky With Windows Phone Clothing Line

microsoft-creates-windows-phone-clothing-line.jpg

The geeks over at Microsoft created a Windows Phone clothing line. How techy!

The company revealed their geeky gear on their freshly launched Windows Store on CafePress displaying their custom t-shirts, hoodies, baby bodysuits and bags adorned with the ‘I Heart Windows Phone' logo.

Well isn't that just nerdy?

Microsoft said they formulated their apparel for a stylish appeal and still have more pieces in the making:

“One of the biggest requests we get isn't always for features - it's for swag. This store is a work in progress, and we’re still tweaking the product selection and design. We’ll continue to add new products and designs over time. Also, all products are offered at the base cost, we’re not making any money off of this.”

We're not sure if the designs are super chic just yet, but it's a great concept.

Unfortunately for the PC community, Mac already created a swag-filled clothing line, and we like it a lot better! Ha!

Good try though.

Finding the perfect pair of jeans can be a hassle, but thanks to new technology there's now a machine that does the leg work for you.

All you gotta do is step into a Bodymetrics pod to have your body scanned and presto! It recommends jeans by brand and body type!

The machine used Microsoft Kinect technology and classifies body in gems: "Emerald" for slim shapes, "Ruby" for curvy shapes and "Sapphire" for those in the middles.

Only three sizes,? That could raise a few eyebrows!

The pod is up and running in the UK and will receive a test stateside at Bloomingdale's before branching out to over 100 stores.

Would you let a machine tell U what jeans to get???
