So the Elitebook 8740w didn’t exactly appear to the hungry masses last week as rumored… but there’s word that orders have already been placed for this elusive notebook, from those who know the right people.

Today is the premiere day of Lady Gaga’s new music video + mini-drama (is that the word?) combo for her single “Telephone” featuring Beyonce, as you might have already noticed if you saw “Lady Gaga” and “Telephone” popping up as two of Twitter’s top trending topics several hours ago, or around the net.
