It isn't a pretty picture: you're stuck in bumper-to-bumper traffic cursing out the cars in front of you for clogging up the road. Instead of yelling at your fellow commuters, whip out your fancy phone for easy access to mobile maps that will offer alternate routes, drive time projections and apps that will tell you how long it's really gonna be.
Remember when I asked if you would switch from Google to Microsoft for your searching needs if you were paid? About three-quarters of you swatted away the idea like it was last year's Blackberry, but after using it myself, I urge you to reconsider. Not for keepers mind you, but handy if you want to save yourself some cash.
Microsoft has partnered up with Ebay to bring you Live — the search engine that fetches you some pretty sweet deals, among thousands of search results. Just enter your search at the top of the page, and Live will tell you how much you can save if you buy from participating Ebay stores. I just bought my boyfriend's Christmas gift and will be getting back 30 percent from my buddy Microsoft. I can't tell you what the gift is (never know when he's reading), but I can tell you it's something of the gadget persuasion. Who woulda thought, right?

Eva Mendes smiled big in her LBD at the premiere of Live! in Paris yesterday. In the mockumentary, Eva plays a TV executive who produces a reality show where the contestants play a real game of Russian Roulette. Sounds a little out there, but we can see Eva working it as a high powered business executive in power suits. For now, we'll just settle for watching Eva strut her stuff around Europe in her cute little premiere numbers. Also, if you want to get Eva's glowing look, let Bella know now!

If you've ever wanted to see Paula Deen live, now's your chance. This summer she's kicking off a "National" Tour - I put national in quotes because it's only five cities: Shreveport, Charlotte, Nashville, Dallas and Atlanta. Each two hour show will feature Ms. Paula cooking up some of her favorite dishes, answering fan questions, sharing tips and doing whatever it is a chef does when on tour.
"People need to get on back to the kitchen," said Paula. "I'm gonna show you how we do it at my house. I'll tell you what I cook and share the secrets to making it good. But the most important thing I want folks to realize is that the memories are what matter. Families get to know each other through cooking a meal together, and then sitting down and lickin' their plates clean. Now that's comfort food."
Oh, that's what they do when they're on tour. They lick their plates clean...
If you live in one of those five national cities, then act fast, tickets are on sale now.
And if you don't live in one of those cities, don't fret, you can always register to win a trip to see her in Atlanta. If you win, please tell me what they have backstage in the greenroom, I want to know if she actually eats the deep fried butter balls.
The Hold Steady put out my favorite album of 2006 — the careening masterpiece that is Boys and Girls in America — so I was delighted to see this live performance by the Hold Steady posted on AOL Music's Spinner site. The band's live shows are alternatively brilliant and unhinged, and this video is no exception. The footage, recorded in New York and Minneapolis, features a track from each of the band's three stellar albums: "Most People are DJs" from Almost Killed Me, "Banging Camp" from Separation Sunday, and "Stuck Between Stations," the opener off the band's newest album.
