Farrah Fawcett (and her enviable beach body) is undoubtedly a tough act to follow. Replacing the late icon as one of “Charlie’s Angels,” Cheryl Ladd eased the tension and approached the role head-on, allegedly donning a shirt that read “Farrah Fawcett Minor” to her first day on set in 1977. And she remained the confident and sexy private investigator Kris Munroe until the show’s cancellation in 1981.
After giving up a life of on-screen crime-fighting, Ladd swapped out her nunchucks for a different set of wrought iron– golf clubs. In her Angel days, we saw the petite blonde wear loose locks and lots of beachwear, but since publishing her first book in 2005, “Token Chick: A Woman’s Guide to Golfing with the Boys,” Ladd has immersed herself in the sport entirely with golf attire. But polo shirts and visors aside, her sun-kissed skin looks gorgeous as ever at 61.
To celebrate her birthday on Thursday July 12th, we’re taking a look back at her style over the years. Don’t you agree she does the black bikini justice?
In recent years, Cheryl has been racking up her guest appearances. Check out her role as a woman who lives by “The Cougar Code” here.

Banks have taken it on the chin over the past several years. But after suffering from a long spell of bad credit card loans during the recession, they are finally getting some positive results from their credit card divisions.
Those improvements in repayment have cut losses substantially, which will allow many banks to improve their earnings by drawing on relatively high loan-loss reserves. That’s very good news for banks, which are continuing to struggle to generate profits. (The recent…

The Roth IRA is one of the best retirement vehicles around:
- Once your money gets into a Roth IRA, it grows tax deferred.
- At (or after) age 59½, as long as you first funded your Roth IRA at least five years previously, you can withdraw the money completely tax-free.
- Unlike with many other retirement accounts, you’re never required to take a distribution from your Roth IRA, even if you live to be 120.
- Once you do pass away, your heirs can also take the money out from…

Americans have enjoyed the freedom to choose between Starbucks apps on both iOS and Android for over a year, and now the Google-flavored iteration is now finally going abroad, launching in both the UK and Canada today. The launch coincides with an app update for all users on the North American continent and across the pond. You’ll now be able to connect your phone to your Starbucks Card payment account, seek out nearby caffeine outlets and gleefully obsess over rewards and balances. The refresh also adds a widget for your presumably otherwise bare homescreen. This first global rollout now totals over 14,000 locations to use your Starbucks Card to pay, with PayPal functionality also rolled into both the US and Canadian iterations. Hit up the PR after the break for the nitty-gritty.

Rovio’s Amazing Alex arrives on Android and iOS July 12th, bosses everywhere weep for lost productivity (video)
It’s finally happening: after roughly two and a half years, Rovio Mobile is weaning itself off of its addiction to avians. The company’s first non-bird title in what feels like an eternity, Amazing Alex, will be reaching the official stores for both Android and iOS come July 12th. Strictly speaking, Rovio is taking something of a shortcut to bringing this Incredible Machine-style puzzler to market: it bought the rights to Casey’s Contraptions and enlisted the developers, Miguel Friginal and Noel Llopis, to bring the title into the Rovio family. While that means it’s not quite as fresh as it could be, the game has already piqued our interest and could be exposed to many (many, many) more players. While we wait, we’ll pour one out for the managers and supervisors bound to lose hours of work from staff trying to finish just one more level.

There is a new fashion among teenagers. It’s the scene fashion and it’s very colorful!
As we feared, DirecTV and Viacom didn’t work things out and before the clock struck midnight ET, all of the network’s feeds went dark for the satellite company’s customers. Of course, both sides are throwing barbs with Viacom saying DirecTV was not interested in engaging in “meaningful conversation” and that their last contact was at 11AM. On DirecTV’s side, it’s claiming it sent proposals but never heard anything back and as such was forced to pull the channels. Viacom has been running ads and notices all day to make sure kids big and little call DirecTV to apply pressure about missing their television shows. DirecTV is firing back with the Kids Mix channel (shown above) that replaces the pulled children’s programming and points out content on other stations, and even suggests customers check out sources like Amazon Prime or Netflix to keep watching their shows in the meantime. There’s no telling who may blink first, or when, but you can look at each company’s statement and hear the sabres rattling for yourself after the break. Any bets as to who will work out a deal first between these two and Dish Network / AMC?

T-Mobile’s myTouch series is back with a new pair of devices — a slate and a slideout QWERTY, to be precise — and the lucky manufacturer this time around is Huawei, following in the footsteps made by HTC and LG in years past. Of course, we can’t say that this is much of a shocker, considering we’ve seen these midrange handsets go through endless rounds of rumors, FCC certification and even our very own hands-ons when visiting Huawei HQ (where the devices are known more officially as the Ascend G312 and G312 QWERTY). But they’re finally ready for the final production line and will be available August 8th for $50 after a $50 mail-in rebate. The myTouch will come in black and dark red, while the myTouch Q will be offered in black and white.
So what kind of specs can we expect to enjoy (or strongly dislike, depending on your personal preference) on the myTouch and myTouch Q? It’s running Android 2.3 on a special customized UI, for starters, which will be a huge disappointment to many potential buyers. Additionally, both devices will offer a 4-inch WVGA screen, 1,500mAh battery, 4GB of internal storage, microSD expansion, 5MP rear camera capable of taking 720p video, 0.3MP front-facing cam, HSPA+ connectivity and an unspecified 1.4GHz CPU (though we reported earlier that it should be a single-core MSM8255T accompanied by 1GB of RAM). Head below to check out our gallery and hands-on video, and then continue reading after the break to hear our first impressions.
