Are you aware that there's a battle going on over iPhone apps? There are two companies fighting over who gets the right to have an application that reproduces sounds made via a certain bodily function. You can pretty much guess what it is. Wyatt Cenac at The Daily Show talked to the two CEOs on Tuesday's show. It always amazes me that people will agree to do these interviews and then say something so inane, like this guy's comment about Jackie Robinson. (Video also here.)

Jennifer Hudson wins OscarLast week, Oscar winner Jennifer Hudson reportedly made a surprise visit back to American Idol to offer words of encouragement to this year's batch of young hopefuls.

Visiting on elimination day, Jennifer said, "I still get nervous on Wednesdays, because I was always in the bottom three." Jennifer told the semifinalists, "Remember, it's OK if you get eliminated!"

Jennifer has certainly proved that you don't have to win American Idol in order to find success. As a follow-up to her Oscar-winning Dreamgirls role, Jennifer is hoping to get a part in Robert Redford's upcoming Jackie Robinson biopic.
