What’s really new about the new iPhone? Rumor has it the iPhone 5 will be thinner than the iPhone 4, but longer. Approximate measurements are 125mm by 58.5mm by 7.4mm—about 10mm more in height, less 2mm in thickness, with the same width.

The most striking feature, however, is a new rear casing – which some see as a major change – a flat metal panel, themed for the symmetrical artsy design of the iMAC. The back is almost totally made of aluminum alloy, though we’re unsure if it’s for functionality sake or for design.

Imagine having 500 million views on your YouTube channel? Today, Jenna Marbles (@Jenna_Marbles) has hit 527 million plus views, signing up more than three million subscribers. That makes her the most popular woman on YouTube. Jenna, who talks about anything from makeup advice to what clothes to bring on a short vacation, is a 25 year old star.

When a woman falls for man, it happens because her heart tells her so –right? Precious! But wait, is that really the case? How many times does the average woman fall in love? I surmise the answer can be derived from intense research of Sex and the City episodes –that’s arguable, perhaps. However, according to new research by the University of Texas at San Antonio, it is hormones that determine how and what kind of man a woman falls for.
