New iPhones and iOS 7 team up for winning combo
perfectly reasonable to assume that anyone thinking about buying a new
iPhone when the latest devices hit retail on Friday would focus on the
hardware itself, especially with Apple trotting out two new models. But
the biggest change to come to the iPhone arrives with iOS 7,
the operating system at the heart of the newest handsets. As of today,
it can also be downloaded to freshen up the iPhone 4, iPhone 4S and the
now discontinued iPhone 5 as well as some iPads and the iPod Touch.
Navy Yard shooter reported hearing voices through walls
life of Aaron Alexis, the 34-year-old civilian Navy contractor who
killed 12 people Monday at the Washington Navy Yard, friends, law
enforcement and military officials say, was an odd combination of
Buddhist calm and paranoia, friendliness and sudden rage. Alexis' paranoia was
in full display again as recently as last month. He complained to
police in Newport, R.I., about hearing voices speaking to him through
the ceiling of his hotel room, seeking to penetrate his body with
vibrations from a "microwave machine" to prevent him from sleeping. He
told officers that he had no history of mental illness in his family.

blue-and-gray "Super Hero" shirt.
Cher rips Miley's dancing, song, physique, oral hygiene
The hyperactive, sexual performance with Robin Thicke was "so bad," says the famously outspoken diva, 67. "I'm not old-fashioned," Cher tells USA TODAY in an interview to promote new album Closer to the Truth.
"She could have come out naked, and if she'd just rocked the house, I
would have said, 'You go, girl.' It just wasn't done well. She can't
dance, her body looked like hell, the song wasn't great, one cheek was
hanging out. And, chick, don't stick out your tongue if it's coated."
Zac Efron completed stint in rehab, reports say
Online gossips are reporting that Zac Efron quietly completed a stint in rehab
earlier this year, but is clean and sober now. TMZ is reporting, citing
multiple unnamed sources, that his treatment, completed about five
months ago, was for "cocaine addiction." And possibly he also may have
dabbled in "Molly," the lately-in-the-news pure form of Ecstasy popular
at clubs and raves.
