NEW YORK – What would a President Spears administration be like? Apparently, very tasty.

Britney Spears appeared on David Letterman‘s “Late Show” on Tuesday to deliver a Top Ten list of ways the country would be different if she were president.

“Free pie for everybody,” Spears declared.

For No. 10 on the list, Spears said she’d be “the first president since Nixon to wear eye shadow.”

The pop star appeared eager to show off her buff new body. She delivered the list in a bikini.

PlayStation 3 Slim unboxing and hands-on!

Yes, we can hardly believe it ourselves, but Sony came a-knockin’ at our door today, and we were more than willing to answer. The PlayStation 3 Slim is now official in-house, and it’s a matte-laden beaut. Enough chitchat — live vicariously through our unboxing and hands-on pics below!

Update: Some details for clarification. The buttons in the front are now physical and actually “click” in to function. The PS logo above the disc drive does not rotate for vertical use, and yes, the hard drive is swappable — as you can see from the pictures, there’s a screw on the bottom, hidden by a panel, that lets you take off part of the front for access. We’ve also lined it up against our standard, fatty PS3, and we gotta say, it’s noticeably lighter.

Update 2: Here’s a more thorough comparison between the slim, the original, and the Xbox 360. Some people were asking about the texture of the matte finish, and compared to Microsoft’s console, it’s just a teensy bit rougher (and on that note, about the same weight, too). It’s still just as glossy as the original on the sides, however. We still gotta compare the noise of the slim, stay tuned!

Update 3: While our tests were far from thorough, the initial results from our quick-and-dirty decibel ratings show some promise. At a baseline average of 49 db, the Slim averages between 53 and 56 db when in use / playing a game / installing data (in this case, Metal Gear Solid 4), compared to the 55 to 57 db of the original. Blu-ray movie playback is where it becomes noticeable, as the slim peaked for us at 60 db when the original was doing 70 db running the same disc.

Arrests at Kenny Chesney Concert

Tuesday 08-18-2009 8:28am CT

More Than 100 People Arrested at Kenny Chesney’s Stadium Concert – Anyone who has had the priveledge to see Kenny out at Verizon knows that it IS a party. It’s all fun until somebody gets arrested.

At least 114 people were arrested Saturday (Aug. 15) at Kenny Chesney’s concert at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Mass., near Boston. According to the Boston Globe, another 228 were taken into protective custody at the New England Country Music Festival. Most of the offenses involved underage drinking. The police crackdown stemmed from Chesney’s concert there last year when two women were killed in an automobile accident after a day of tailgating on the parking lot. Neither of the victims had tickets to the concert. Chesney’s shows at Gillette Stadium have sold out for five consecutive years. Saturday’s concert also featured Sugarland, Montgomery Gentry and Miranda Lambert. More than 56,000 people attended the event.
