Is Mark Zuckerberg engaged to girlfriend Priscilla Chan? That's the rumor going around - a rumor traced to a comment by none other than Bill Gates.

The Microsoft founder may have just used the wrong word in reference to his fellow computer entrepreneur, but he definitely called her his "fiancee."

In an interview with the Daily Mail (UK), Gates discussed the philanthropic efforts of Zuckerberg, who recently reached out to Gates and his foundation.

Mark Zuckerberg and Priscilla Chan

Like Gates, Zuckerberg has pledged to give away most of his fortune.

"I didn't say to Mark, 'Give me all your money!' He was predisposed to do it and he came to me seeking advice. His fiancée Priscilla thought about education and he gave money to Newark, New Jersey," Gates said.

The head of the Gates Foundation said, "We did a co-grant so that some of our people who had some expertise in that field could help him out."

It could have been nothing more than a slip of the tongue, saying fiancee instead of girlfriend, but Zuckerberg has been dating Chan since 2003.

The first photos of Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, taken about five months after she was tragically shot in the head, have emerged on Facebook.

The images depict a a woman in recovery, smiling and with short, dark hair. They were taken by a professional photographer on May 17 at TIRR Memorial Hermann Hospital, a day before Giffords under a cranioplasty.

The picture above was not altered or edited, according to her staff, who said it shows "Gabby has traveled a remarkable distance since Jan. 8."

“This was Mark and Gabby’s decision,” said spokesman CJ Karamargin of the pictures' release. “There is intense interest in the Congresswoman’s appearance and on the threshold of her going to outpatient treatment, we thought this was a good way to satisfy public curiosity.”

Giffords is expected to leave the hospital this month.

The man accused of opening fire on her and her constituents in Arizona has been deemed mentally incompetent.

Some people take Facebook very seriously.

We recently told you about T-Pain's "Like" tattoo, but even he can't hold a candle to YouTube user Suzyj87, who recently videoed the process of getting a "sleeve" style tattoo ... of the photos of her 152 Facebook friends.

Now that's serious loyalty ... or something.

If she gets 50 more friends, will she get 50 more photos tattooed? There's a finite surface area, after all. She explains this conundrum as such:

"Of course I gave it a lot of thought. These are not all my friends. Just the people I care most about," she says of the artistic Facebook mosaic.

"I got their permission and they were proud to be on it. It represents who I am right now and the time we live in. And of course I love the look."

We have to give Suzy87 that much. It does look sort of cool. At least as far as tattoos of your Facebook friends that cover your entire arms go.

Her sister may be the Duchess of Cambridge now, but Pippa Middleton also caught the attention of millions tuning in to the British royal wedding last Friday.

Thanks to her white, body-hugging Alexander McQueen gown, some even say Pippa stole the spotlight from her older sister. We wouldn't go that far, but ...

The fascination with Pippa Middleton, Kate's maid of honor, has even spawned a Facebook page: The unofficial "Pippa Middleton Arse Appreciation Society."

It's been "Liked" by nearly 200,000 people and counting.

  • Hot Pippa Middleton Pic

Pippa does look unreal in that dress. Just saying.

Not shockingly, the younger Middleton sister has quickly become one of the U.K.'s hottest bachelorettes, although she may not be that way for much longer.

She brought rumored beau Alex Loudon, a cricket player turned businessman, as her date to the wedding, and the two are reportedly getting very serious.

Regardless, tabloid interest in Pippa's personal life should only increase, thanks to Kate marrying Prince William - and because she's a great catch herself.

"At heart, Pippa is a nice, smart girl who likes to party and have fun," a source told the Daily Mail. Not a lot to dislike about that combination, is there?

Despite losing their appeal, Tyler and Cameron Winklevoss are STILL going after Mark Zuckerberg, saying he and Facebook ruthlessly defrauded them.

The Winkelevoss twins are not giving up on their claims against Zuckerberg and the social networking site, which they claim was there idea originally.

They point to two damning IMs as proof that Zuck f*%ked them.

Winklevii and Zuck

Zuckerberg and Facebook settled with the genetic freaks for $65 million, but they've been trying to undo the deal, on grounds of fraud, to obtain more.

The Winklevii want a federal appellate court to reexamine their settlement with Facebook, acknowledge that the IMs are proof of fraud and nullify it.

Tyler and Cameron claim Facebook intentionally withheld messages sent by Mark saying, "Yeah, I'm going to f**k them ... probably in the [ear]."

In another IM, Zuckerberg allegedly told a friend:

"But [the twins] made a mistake haha. They asked me to make it for them. So I'm like delaying it so it won't be ready until after the facebook comes out."

Maybe The Social Network was more accurate than we thought ...

Despite their claims that Facebook did not provide an accurate valuation, a judge ruled that Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss must accept their $65 million settlement from the social networking behemoth and move on. SUCKS for them.

A U.S. appeals court ruled that the settlement stands.

Mark Zuckerberg and Priscilla Chan

The Winklevoss twins (seen here with the actor who portrayed them in The Social Network, Armie Hammer) say Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg stole their idea.

Zuckerberg and Facebook settled with the twins in '08. The Winklevii have since tried to secure more $$ by claiming that Facebook is guilty of securities fraud.

Chief Judge Alex Kozinski wrote in Monday’s ruling that the twins already settled the dispute and signed a release of all claims against Facebook. End of story.

With both the district court and appeals court in agreement, it seems this may be the end of the Winklevosses’ claim to any additional shares of Facebook.

They will therefore have to cope with a mere $65 million to go with their genetically freakish good looks and Harvard degrees. Talk about getting shafted.

Facebook CEO and world's youngest billionaire Mark Zuckerberg sure has found a new way to soften his image, which took a pounding in The Social Network:

Get a new puppy!

"Beast" looks like anything but. The two-month-old ball of fluff adopted by Mark and longtime partner Priscilla Chan is sure to elicit more than a few awwwws ...

Eminem has dethroned Lady Gaga as the most popular living person on Facebook, according to Famecount (dot) com. The Queen's reign lasted eight months.

With almost 29 million Facebook fans (people that "Like" is page), Eminem overtook Gaga, who still remains within a million fans of the rapper's overall total.

Only one person retains more Facebook popularity than Eminem - the late Michael Jackson. At just over 29 million Likes, Michael looks poised to fall to #2-3.

Lady Gaga held the lead since June 25 of last year, when she overtook President Barack Obama (who has since fallen to 12th place among living humans).

On Twitter, Gaga's 8.4 million Little Monsters dwarfs Eminem's modest 3 million, while he lags both Gaga and Justin Bieber on Twitter and YouTube as well.

Whoever's #1, they're in a class by themselves. Perhaps the three can form a social media triumvirate, pooling resources en route to world domination.
