Online Idols
American Idol auditions are a massive affair;the sheer scale of the production can be witnessed even before the show is on air - when serpentine queues of hopefuls line up for auditions. Now, the Fox reality singing show has decided to go online with its auditions process. Entries can be submitted through MySpace until Oct 6. According to the show's producers, the entries must be no longer than 40 seconds, and contestants can choose from the following songs, among others, on the audition list: Bill Withers' "Ain't No Sunshine When She's Gone, " Keith Urban's "Kiss a Girl, " and Barry Manilow's "Copacabana. " In other news related to the show, entertainment website TMZ reports that Jennifer Lopez has signed a one-year, $12 million contract as judge, though the news is not yet official.

Tweeting the change

It's everyone's favourite micro-blogging site and continues to attract hundreds of followers by the day. In order to be more user-friendly, Twitter has unveiled a redesign of its website. So what's new, you ask? The biggest change comes in the form of a layout change: the site will now feature two panels. The left-side panel will host the traditional stream of tweets and the right-side panel will display videos, images, maps, and 'related content' from tweets that are clicked in the left-side panel. And yes, if you want more, you will not have to click on the 'more' button. The new design allows for infinite scrolling. The preview roll-out will take place over the next few weeks.
