Looks like Mark Zuckerberg got tripped up in his own privacy settings this holiday season. As all families did this last few weeks, the Zuckerberg’s gathered together to share time with one another. Randi, Mark’s sister, posted a photo of her and her family along with brother Mark in the background. Hit the jump to see the pic and hear what she had to say about it. Tat Wza
Last week we reported that RIM settled a patent dispute with Nokia, but the amount of the settlement was’nt disclosed when RIM and Nokia settled. The word is RIM recently made a one time payment to Nokia for $65 million . Now that the payment is made RIM and Nokia will enter a settlement of all patent litigation between both companies in United States, United Kingdom, Canada and Germany. And no further action will be taken on Nokia’s end. The payment will end up in Nokia’s 3rd quarter earnings in 2013. Yungjohnnybravo x TatWZA
Katie Holmes, the ex-wife of actor Tom Cruise, played Lorna, a beaten-down woman living with her parents in the five-character play by Theresa Rebeck which opened on November 29 to mostly negative reviews. No reason was given for the play’s early closing, but it was heard that the play wasn’t reaching the success that was expected. Many reviewers said Holmes acquitted herself alongside a roster of Broadway veterans, who included Tony-winning actor Norbert Leo Butz as the brother who returns to his Midwestern family and unleashes havoc in the comedy.

After being spotted together at the basketball game the other day and countless other times, it’s clear that Chris Brown and Rihanna are back together but where does that leave Karrueche. Chris, who drunkenly admitted that he loved both Rih and Kae, seemed to be stringing Kae along for a bit once rumors began that him and Rih were seeing each other again. Many people were left wondering if Chris was with Kae or with Rihanna or just friends with both, and it seems like we finally have an answer after Chris took serious action recently. Beings that Chris called Kae for Christmas and says he misses her, leaves people to believe that Rihanna made him take the action that he did to prove he doesn’t want Kae anymore. I’m not sure why anyone thinks calling someone Christmas or missing them means you want to be with them. I always felt like Kae was a rebound chick anyway, she just stuck around longer than I thought she would have. Find out what it was that Chris did below, Julie A.
Years after their break-up, Yoko Ono is opening up for the first time about the real reason why The Beatles broke up. I’m curious why she decided to open about about what she calls “the divorce” now after all these years. Yoko said that John was pleased with the break-up since all the members said they began to feel like they were Paul’s back-up band and not a united band. Yoko also claims that Ringo and George came to her and John to talk to them about leaving the band before they split while Paul was attempted to keep the band together. Ono also said that Lennon really did miss his bandmates. It’s a shame that they split when they did, but more importantly that John and Paul never spoke after their split and never really got the chance to peace things up. Read what Yoko said below.

Come January 4th, “The International Rome Film Festival” will be presenting the “Django Unchained” director with a lifetime achievement award and showing the European premiere of the most talked about movie right now. The award will be handed off by Ennio Morricone, an Italian film composer. This guy has made BIG moves with this movie. I honestly believe this will be an historical movie. Congrats Quentin. Drop down bottom for more on the festival. JaaiR (JR)

We are getting more and more info regarding the Brooklyn Nets firing coach Avery Johnson yesterday. In my opinion the Nets made a silly move. I have been saying the Nets are an overrated team with too much hype surrounding them with the move to Brooklyn and the teams affiliation with rapper Jay Z. Yes they get alot of attention, but at the end of the day they have an overrated roster with superstar point guard in Deron Williams, who this season can’t shoot the ball to save his life. They brought in a “B-list” star in Joe Johnson, who is another over-hyped player who has never really won anything and has never proven he is a winner, even though he is talented. Avery Johnson did not get a fair chance with this team. Check out what GM Billy King said about Johnson after the jump. IamJOE357
