HTC just unveiled its version of the iPhone, the Touch which to some of you, you may recognize as the new and improved Elf. The Touch is the first cell phone to come with TouchFLO touchscreen technology, a new feature developed by HTC. Just like the iPhone, you can use your finger to navigate your way around the menu screen.. although you can use your stylus as well if you've got sticky fingers.
This phone boasts a 2.8 inch touchscreen, 128MB of ROM, 64MB of RAM, a 2 megapixel camera, bluetooth, Windows Mobile 6 and other great features.
It is currently available in the UK and will be making its way to Europe and Asia later in the month. Expect to see it in the US by the end of this year!

Summer days are coming soon, so to get your lips primed, I asked you all to spend last week Beauty Marking good lip glosses with sun protection. (To learn what a Beauty Mark is and how to make one, click here.)
I'm always pleasantly surprised when I find lip glosses with sunscreen, and I knew that you guys would find a lot of great options that I didn't know about. You can see all of the SPF lip gloss Beauty Marks here, or check out my reader favorites below.
Beauty Mark #1: Kiehl's Tinted Lip Balm SPF 15 ($8.50), found by Precious p, YumSugar, and Katiey424, who says the subtle, shiny color is "easy to throw in my bag — won't melt like Chapstick. Perfect for the summer!"

Will Ferrell's endearing, off-kilter acting style seems to have spawned its own genre: call it, simply, the Will Ferrell Movie. While I find too-similar routines obnoxious in some actors, Ferrell movies are often so easily digestible that I crave them when I need a lighthearted film fix. In honor of Ferrell's latest triumph, Blades of Glory, I thought I'd pay tribute to the man in this week's Movie Night.
On the surface, this "dude buddy" kind of movie sounds kind of repellent, but whether it's the clever script or Ferrell's inoffensive demeanor, I absolutely love Old School. Frustrated by the realities of adulthood, three buddies in their 30s (including a priceless Vince Vaughn) create their own fraternity, partially to keep from being evicted by the ornery dean. What's funny is that these aging college friends are still desperately trying to "fight the man" when they are at a point where they could easily be "the man." It's silly, ridiculous, and easy to watch.

So many movies, so little time. Thankfully, BuzzSugar is here to help you sort through them all! Every Thursday, we'll choose a theme for a weekend Movie Night and feature three must-see movies in keeping with the topic.
This week's Movie Night: family holiday films that won't drive you nuts. If you often find yourself watching holiday movies with the youngsters in your family, it kind of kills the mood when you audibly groan and yawn. Here are three movies that will entertain the tots and keep you from nodding off in the corner like a granny.
Elf tells the story of Buddy (Will Ferrell), who was swept away to the North Pole as a boy and raised by elves. Despite the obvious physical differences between he and his elfin peers, Buddy considers himself one of them, until his foster dad (Bob Newhart) reveals the truth. Then it's off to Manhattan, where Buddy hopes to reconnect with his real father (James Caan). Dry-witted Zooey Deschanel stars as Buddy's love interest, who works as an elf at a department store. There is plenty of visual comedy that will appeal to the little ones, as well grown-up jokes to keep everyone in the room chuckling.
