Looking for a new phone?

blingphone.jpgFor Denise Albert, choosing a cell phone has nothing to do with ring tones, instant messages or megapixels.

“To me, it’s what it looks like,” said Albert, a 53-year-old campaign fundraiser from suburban Powell. “I want a good design. Period.”

Albert represents a fashion trend marketers are tapping into as they offer mobile phones with sleeker designs and in more colors, such as blue and pink, and accessories ranging from charms and stickers to crystals and tiny designer purses.

“I want a good design. Period.” Too bad she didn’t get it.

A Florida man claims someone reached into his mouth and stole his gold teeth as he slept. Bryan Osteen, of Mims, Brevard Country, [called]  police to complain about the theft, reports Local6.com News.

Osteen told officers that someone entered his bedroom and took the £40 teeth out of his mouth. He said he had friends at his home and believes one of them had something to do with the crime. Osteen said he did not wake up because he is a heavy sleeper, according to a Brevard County Sheriff’s Office report.

Gong Duruo, who was born at Chengde, Hebei province, in 1901, wants a wife less than half his age. Gong, a doctor, said: “First, the woman better have a history of doctor practice or learning literature, since I need assistance to write a medical book.  Second, the woman should be younger than 50, and can take care of my life.”

Gong has two medical degrees – one from the American State University around 1940, the other from the West China University of Medical Sciences in 2000. He currently lives with relatives but told Inner Mongolia Morning Papers he was looking for life partner again.

“Every one should have a goal. Without a goal, people would die very early. Thats why scientists always have longevity, like Einstein, since they have life-goals,” he said.
