It’s hard to underestimate the value of brand loyalty. Just ask Verizon Wireless. It’s with satisfied Incredible and Incredible 2 owners in mind that the carrier is promoting the Droid Incredible 4G LTE, a 4-inch, $149 device that — as you may have guessed — rides along VZW’s fast LTE network.
Interestingly, the Incredible 4G LTE is landing at a time when many consumers might have preferred, say, the HTC One X. In fact, though, Verizon’s decision to instead update the Incredible (also made by HTC) introduces a rather enviable proposition to Verizon customers. Remember that in a short matter of time, the Samsung Galaxy S III will soon make its debut at Verizon, at which point, it’s expected to become the network’s premiere smartphone. Still, its large size will deter many shoppers, and when viewed through this lens, the Droid Incredible 4G LTE begins to make sense. Put simply, it’s a compact handset that stands as the antithesis to the assumption that size equals power. While the handset doesn’t quite approach the capabilities or elegance of the One X (or the One S, for that matter), the latest Incredible is a worthy successor and deserves consideration as your next smartphone — regardless of your current provider. Read on to learn why.

And so, the Facebook v. Yahoo! courtroom tussle has come to an end. The two Silicon Valley giants have agreed to a legal truce and cross-licensed a bit of each other’s IP, meaning that’s one less legal donnybrook we have to worry about upsetting consumer sensibilities. Not only have the two settled their differences over their respective advertising and social networking patents, but they’ve also agreed to an ad sales partnership, too. Now, if only all those other, myriad tech litigants could amicably settle their differences with such alacrity. Perhaps they should all take a gander at the PR after the break to see how it’s done.

Confession: I am afraid of wearing lipstick. Because of this, I always let my lips go bare, even when wearing makeup on the rest of my face.
A few weeks ago, my fears were put to the test when I attended a dinner celebrating the re-release of Ruffian x MAC bright red lipstick. At the coaxing of the editors sitting near by, I decided to try on the shade I had heard so much about. While my dining companions said I looked great, I was still skeptical about the color (and mirror-less). After a few glasses of wine, I forgot all about my Ruffian Red lips and joined some other friends for a drink.
“You look great!” they all exclaimed. “What’s different?”
I immediately became self-conscious again, but it was hard to dismiss these compliments. I started to think about why I feel so opposed to wearing lipstick. Is it because it can look messy? That I hate how lipstick looks on a coffee cup? That it can get on my teeth? That it makes me feel like my mother? Or grandmother? Is red lipstick too much of a feminine clichÃ©?
While all of the above anxieties may be true, I think my real fears about wearing lipstick have more to do with what it says about who I am as a person. Although I wear makeup in some form every day and have enough product in my bathroom to open a medium-sized boutique, I like to think of myself as a more low-maintenance type of girl. My daily 5-minute face includes foundation, blush, eyeliner and mascara… and hopefully reads as minimal. When I look in the mirror when I wear lipstick, I somehow look much more “done,” more “polished.” And this makes me wonder: Does wearing lipstick scream, “I AM WEARING MAKEUP!”? Do I look like I am vying for attention?
I decided to experiment with lipstick again this week. Was liking my red-colored reflection just a wine-induced fantasy or did it mean I could actually wear lipstick and feel comfortable? Take a peek in the gallery below to see the five shades I tried: nude, orange, pink, purple, and, of course, red. While I might not be ready to give up my clear lip balm just yet, you may see me around sporting one of these shades this summer:

The correlation between business and fashion has no stronger bond then in the case of Rande Gerber. Once a fashion model and now business tycoon, Rande is the founder of the Gerber Group, not to mention the husband of Cindy Crawford and father of two beautiful children.
The Gerber Group was founded in 1991 opening their first property; The Whiskey, located in The Paramount Hotel. Working to re-define the ‘hotel bar’ with their unique venues, The Gerber Group quickly became one of the leading nightlife proprietors. Now responsible for over 23 brands, The Gerber Group runs the Living Room and Stone Rose Lounge among many others all over the United States. Rande is also the owner/operator of the Midnight Oil chain of bars and lounges.
It was my great pleasure to have the chance to speak with Rande this week.

Gap (GPS) investors should be pretty stoked right now.
Shares of the company behind Old Navy, Banana Republic, and its namesake apparel chain have been on fire this year. Gap’s stock has climbed higher in five of the past six months, notching an impressive 47.5% gain through the first half of 2012.
It’s easy to fall into the trap — a Gap trap, if you will — of thinking that the former Wall Street darling is back. Gap was a big retail winner through the 1980s and 1990s, but things haven’t…
