Reports are abound that a section for podcasts is nowhere to be found in the latest beta version of iTunes for iOS 6. Given its beta status, it’s easy to dismiss the exclusion as functionality that’s yet to be baked in, but Peter Kafka of AllThingsD believes that Apple has something entirely different in mind. According to his sources, podcasts are set to receive a new home within a separate app of iOS 6. If true, this would provide one central hub for podcasts, as opposed to Apple’s current scheme where they’re discovered and downloaded in the iTunes app, then played within the Music app — a little disjointed, but it’s the setup we’ve come to know. Kafka’s sources go on to state that podcasts will remain part of iTunes on the desktop. Unsurprisingly, Apple hasn’t commented on the speculation. Guess we’ll all learn more in the coming months, eh?

HP’s Pavilion dv6 must be pretty popular. That’s how we’d explain the fact that the laptop will be one of the first to land with AMD’s Trinity chipset — despite already appearing with an Ivy Bridge refresh. According to Laptop Reviews, the Pavilion dv6-7010 will arrive with the quad-core AMD A8-4500M APU, teamed with with a Radeon 7640G graphics card, six gigs of RAM and 750GB of storage. The outer specs remain unchanged, but there is one other difference worth mentioning; it’s priced at $700 — a hundred bucks less than the Intel version.

“Cheers, guys,” Brazilian singer-actor Seu Jorge said as he clinked glasses with designer Rachel Roy. And the two had every reason to celebrate, as the fruits of their collaboration, a Brazil-themed clothing collection, is now on sale at Macy’s.
The colorful clothing, shoes, jewelry and bags was inspired by the “effortless confidence” Roy felt when she visited Jorge at his home and interacted with the local women. “I think whenever youâre in a different environment thatâs tropical, the clothes start to shed,” she said of the way she dressed on her trip. Jorge added, explaining the biggest difference between style in the United States and Brazil, “Less clothes.” He elaborated, “Brazil is really hot and people wear shorts, flip-flops and bikinis a lot. I think bikinis are a Brazilian specialty.”
While the collection does not include bikinis (unfortunately), it does include a printed dress that was inspired by Jorge’s favorite homegrown plant. The black and white strapless number is also Roy’s most beloved piece from the collection. “I love it. I wear it on weekends riding bikes with my kids, and I actually wore it to a gala… when other people had beaded dresses on,” she said.
Having the confidence to wear a cotton dress to a fancy New York event is what the whole collaboration between Roy and Jorge is really about. Of his two style-loving daughters, Jorge says, “I want my kids to express themselves doing what they want to do… if she wants to paint her hair, paint it. If it doesn’t look good and you don’t like it, paint it again.” This kind of parenting is something they both share. On the T-shirt and blue crochet skirt Roy’s 12-year-old daughter loves from the collection, Roy said, “She felt so good in it and so cool… when she’s around her little judgmental friends she feels confident.” Jorge added, “Believe in yourself, trust in yourself, care about yourself. That’s the message inside this collection.”
Is there a future collaboration for Rachel Roy and Seu Jorge, perhaps in his chosen medium? Roy laughed, “I took piano and guitar and no. The answer is no [I can't play an instrument].” While playing an instrument may be the only thing Roy can’t do, she may have started something here. “You gave me a good idea,” Jorge joked, “Next time I will invite her to sing a song.” We’ll definitely tune in.

Talk about teen angst. Just in case you thought worries about money were solely the domain of adults, you can go ahead and put that assumption to rest.

- 93% of teens said their family was affected by the recession.
- 75% said learning more about money management is a top priority for them.
- 59% think that they will do…
