This is either a classic trolling effort or a Grade A screw-up from the peeps in charge of Rick Santorum's website. There's a pic of Moot from 4Chan on it!

Moot and Santorum

Patriot Voices, uber-conservative Santorum's site, is ripe with partisan vitriol. Standard.

If you navigate it, however, a pop up box appears with different faces alongside Rick's.

One of those seemingly random pictures is of Chris Poole, a.k.a. Moot of 4chan fame.

Apple unveiled a smaller iPad tablet Tuesday - the iPad mini - and changes to larger Mac computers as the tech giant seeks to stay ahead of the curve.

Executives took the stage to introduce the iPad mini, a tablet with a 7.9-inch screen that weighs half as much as the iPad, which it closely resembles.

iPad Mini

The mini has two cameras, a dual-core A5 processor and 10-hour battery life. It comes in both Wi-Fi only versions and models with LTE wireless connectivity.

In the best-selling book No Easy Day, a retired Navy SEAL writing under an assumed name details the raid that killed Osama bin Laden last year in Pakistan.

He says that training for the assault took place in North Carolina. With that information, whistleblower site Cryptome (dot) org thinks it found that site:

  • Bin Laden Training Ground
  • Bin Laden Compound

The alleged Bin Laden training ground (left), and his actual compound.

After putting in the coordinates in Google Maps for the Harvey Point Defense Testing facility, purportedly a CIA training ground, only a clearing in a field was seen.

On Bing Maps, however, Cryptome says it was a different story.

With the iPhone 5's release captivating the tech-crazed world, a guy decided to glue one to the sidewalk on the device's release date and see if anyone would attempt to take it.

Spoiler alert: People did. Hard.

The collective obsession with the world's hottest phone made for one of the hottest viral videos of the week, as people in Amsterdam's Leidseplein Square tried to snag that piece.

This could also be a great ad for Super Glue. Strong stuff! That thing was not going anywhere. A few people even attempted to kick the iPhone 5 loose, to no avail.

Surprisingly, Kris Jenner was not one of them.

South Korean sensation PSY and his viral smash hit “Gangnam Style” have danced, rapped and ridden straight into the Guinness Book of World Records.

PSY’s video has been liked 2,234,641 times on YouTube, an all-time high, annihilating the prior record of 1,575,979, set by LMFAO’S “Party Rock Anthem.”

All in a mere three months after “Gangnam Style” was released.

Heeeeeey sexy laaaaaady! Bow down to PSY and his fake horse.

As for the all-time most watched YouTube video, PSY's got a ways to go before he catches Justin Bieber and his 780,683,863 views. "Baby," that's a lot.

“Gangnam Style” has a modest 230,549,340. So far.

Whether he breaks that mark or not, PSY already left his mark on pop culture, thanks to the Britney Spears Gangnam Style dance on Ellen. Enough said.

Big Apple Pizza owner Scott Van Nuzer received a visit from President Barack Obama Sunday in Fort Pierce, Fla., and reacted with a giant bear hug for the POTUS.

Yelp trolls responded a little less positively.

Irate, presumably conservative users flooded the rate and review website shortly afterward, sending Big Apple Pizza’s overall rating into a tailspin.

“Talk about committing business suicide. After picking up Obama, your books are gonna be in the red pretty soon. Not too smart,” one "reviewer" posted.

  • Pizza Man Bear Hugs Obama
  • Obama Bear Hug

The commenter from Cottonwood, Ariz., 2,200 miles away, gave him 1/5 stars. Harsh. Hours later, though, Van Nuzer's establishment had staged a comeback.

Another Yelp commenter retaliated, “Really, conservatards? You try to trash a man’s business because he likes a different political candidate than you?"

"What scum you all are. SCOTT VAN DUZER IS MY HERO!”

Of the 229 comments listed on the page (30 “filtered,” one axed for violating terms of service), only two are pre-Obama bear hug. His overall rating is currently 5/5.

The oldest review, posted in 2010, offers this assessment:

“Nice variety of food for lunch or dinner. Love the Pizza, wings, subs, best stromboli in town. Great atmosphere in newly renovated dinning area, and flat screen TV’s ... staff make you feel right at home. Special people and good food make for a local favorite.”

Must have been what Obama read before deciding on Big Apple.

Start scraping together your $200, because Apple just announced - without overtly saying as much - that it's totally releasing the iPhone 5 next week!

The tech giant sent out invitations to various media outlets, beckoning them to an event at the Yerba Buena Center in San Francisco on September 12.

The implication of what's being unveiled then is clear:

iPhone 5

Of course, the invite doesn't officially say the iPhone 5 is being released then, but the shadow "5" and the tagline "it's almost here" kinda give it away.

Might as well go stand in line now so you can get yours ... could be cutting it close. According to uncorroborated iPhone 5 rumors, it will feature:

  • Brighter, newer colors for the body and screen
  • Greater durability
  • Slightly bigger screens
  • A thinner frame
  • An even faster A6 processor
  • Better battery life
  • Intermittently racist Siri (kidding)

Will.i.am has made music history in the most unusual of ways.

One of his songs - appropriately called "Reach For the Stars" - was played back by NASA's Mars Curiosity rover as part of a collaboration between the national space agency and the Black Eyed Peas rapper's educational i.am.angel Foundation.

As such, it became the first song ever played from Mars!

With no speakers on the rover, however, the track was sadly not played on the red planet itself ... all the UFOs on Mars really missed out.
