If you have a dog, you’re aware of those “puppy eyes” they give you when they’re hungry. Even though we shouldn’t, we usually cave and give them a little piece of whatever we’re eating. Now, you can give them doggie Christmas cake! It’s all thanks to a man in Japan, Naohiko Nagatani, who created a dog-friendly cake. He’s the owner of an Italian restaurant in Japan and so far the cakes are selling well. They go for about $73 each, which may seem like a lot to spend on your dog, but the best part about these cakes, is humans can eat them too.

In Bihar, India, they have banned women from using cellphones. I’m serious. The reason for the ban? Too many females are eloping and having extramarital affairs. And clearly, banning the use of cellphones is the only way to stop it. People are protesting this outrageous ban.
Millionaire takes his Christmas wish to a San Diego Billboard
Marc Paskin, a millionaire and reality TV personality, bought this billboard ad in San Diego. It speaks for itself. This is probably one of the most shallow things I’ve ever seen, but it’s kinda funny. If I had money I would make one too. All I want for Christmas is a Jamaican boyfriend, seriously.

India is the country where Katy Perry was proposed to and where she she got married. Although the marriage didn’t work out, she did pack home a snazzy Bollywood remix for “California Gurls.”
The remix was commissioned for her show by Jack O.A.T for her 2012 performance in India. While it includes a lot of the original composition, I love the Bollywood flair. Plus the video just makes me want to dance. [Source]

Looking rather colourful and somewhat classy in New Delhi, Lady Gaga held a press conference to discuss her four day visit. It’s a step up from her usual get-up of leather, fishnets and….that’s about all she wears. Here, she looks like the Queen of England that went on an exciting acid trip, and that’s a compliment!
The 25-year-old superstar is well known and well loved in just about every country except Antarctica. I’m not too sure penguins fancy the flamboyant singer’s music. However, in India, all eyes are on her. She’ll be for performing for India’s maiden Formula 1 Grand Prix this weekend.
At the conference, Gaga said she’ll be collaborating with Indian DJs at the show.
“I have built a special stage for this show that I’m doing for Sunday. It is unique for India and it has never been done anywhere else in the world,” she said.
This is the fist time the New Yorker’s stepped foot in India and she went on to say she’s looking forward to exploring the country while she’s there. Celebrity Gossip even reported that she’s staying in a luxious 3,500 square feet presidential suite at the world famous Taj Mahal. I mean, come on, it’s not like Gaga does Holiday Inn.
Katy Perry and Russell Brand finally tied the knot this past Saturday in what is being described as a “traditional Hindu ceremony” at the Aman-i-Khas resort in India, the same resort at which Brand proposed to Perry on New Year’s Eve.
The couple’s rep confirmed their nuptials, stating “Russell Brand and Katy Perry are overjoyed to confirm that they were pronounced Mr. and Mrs. Brand on Saturday, October 23. The very private and spiritual ceremony, attended by the couples’ closest family and friends was performed by a Christian minister and longtime friend of the Hudson Family. The backdrop was the inspirational and majestic countryside of Northern India.”
You can’t call it a traditional Hindu ceremony if it’s being performed under a different religion, guys! You’re so silly.
Though the venue was covered with colourful lights and flower garlands, there was one installment that was not strictly decorative. Radar Online reports that the ceremony and reception were heavily guarded by security in order to keep nosy paparazzi away from the celebration.
Congrats guys! We can’t wait to see the pics.
Russel Brand was in the news recently for allegedly attacking a papparazo in LAX and his dislike of the cameras has seemingly followed him to India’s Ranthambhore National Park, reports E! Online.
Brand and his soon-to-be wife Katy Perry were in a jeep checking out the wildlife in the park, including the tigers, and were being followed by a vehicle carrying photographers representing the Associated Press, Reuters, and a couple of other publications.
The details are slim, but Brand’s bodyguards allegedly attacked the jeep full of photogs, stealing their car keys, which would have effectively left them for dead in a tiger sanctuary.
According to one of the photographers, Mustafa Quraishi, Brand just sat and watched. According to Quraishi, he was punched by one of the bodyguards several times while attempting to get their car keys back, and when his fellow cameramen came to his aid, the bodyguards beat them up too.
Luckily, park rangers eventually came and got the car keys back for the photographers.
As of now, there is no word on the legal implications for those involved.
It looks like it’s official, Katy Perry and Russell Brand are engaged. While the two entertainers were traveling in India, Russell popped the question on New Year’s Eve in a tent at the foot of a mountain. And yes she did say “YES”! E! News has confirmed this with Katy’s people. The two started hanging out after the MTV Video Music Awards last September, and it looks like it’s true love.
Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s Bollywood debut was so awkward I could barely watch, but I couldn’t look away either.
There has never been any mistaking Harper for a cool guy; an Obama-type personality. Harper belongs on TLC, not MTV, and that isn’t news. But his appearance on India’s version of So You Think You Can Dance reaffirmed that there really isn’t much personality under his tough conservative skin.
In early October, Harper performed on stage with famous cellist Yo-Yo Ma. Harper’s rendition of The Beatles’ With a Little Help From My Friends was actually…not too bad. It was the first time that many had seen Harper peek his head out of a Conservative shell that he’d been hiding in since he became Prime Minister. I started to cut him some slack.
With the announcement of its better-than-expected sales from Rainbow Six Vegas 2 and Assassins Creed along with the purchase of the rights to the Tom Clancy franchise, which will see a number of releases in the near future, Ubisoft has recently made its strong presence in the gaming industry not only seen, but felt.
Adding to its momentum is the announcement that it has successfully negotiated an agreement with Gameloft to acquire its development studio in Pune, India.
“Following on the recent announcement of our new Singapore studio, this acquisition will reinforce Ubisoft’s presence in Asia and the southeast region in particular,” stated Christine Burgess-Quémard, executive director, worldwide studios at Ubisoft. “India has a promising future in the videogame industry and this is an opportunity for us to establish ourselves in the country.”
The studio, which was established in 2006, is home to 120 developers and tester who will initially focus on porting titles to handheld devices (mobile phones) and reinforce Ubisoft’s testing teams. Ubisoft hopes to be 200 developers strong within 12 months and plans to eventually grow the team to 500 people. An easy enough task considering Pune’s university system graduates 80 000 engineers each year.
The financial details of the deal weren’t mentioned along with any names of titles that the studio will be developing.
Unfortunately, until North America’s mobile phone technology catches up with that of Asia, no one really cares about mobile gaming.
