getty images The Houston Texans are sticking with Matt Schaub as their starting quarterback for Sunday’s game against the St. Louis Rams. “Matt gives us our best chance to win,” coach Gary Kubiak said. “It was a tough decision, real tough.” The Texans only have T.J. Yates as their backup and simply feel he does not provide the team with a chance to win. Meanwhile the Houston Police department is denying that there was a group of angry fans outside of Schaub’s house today which resulted in a police call. Contrary to some reports, there was not a group of "angry fans" outside the Schaub residence on Monday.#hounews — houston police (@houstonpolice) October 9, 2013 A family member is said to have seen a male taking photos in the driveway but there is nothing more to the story. Police were not called to the home. No other information to release at this time. #hounews — houston police (@houstonpolice) October 9, 2013 In five games this season Schaub has thrown for 1,366 yards and eight touchdowns but has also thrown nine interceptions. Schaub has thrown a pick-six in each of the Texans last four games.

Back in August, Yahoo added live customizable filters and a bunch of professional editing tools to its Flickr Mobile app for iPhone and iPod touch. Today, another significant update to the Flickr iOS app introduces two brand new features i.e. automatic uploading from your camera roll to its servers at full resolution as well as automatic photo straightening using the Flickr editor. Before today’s update, users had to upload their camera roll photos to Flickr from their iPhone or iPod manually. The new Auto Upload feature for iOS 7 users allows them to automatically save their photos to Flickr, securely and privately, until they’re ready to to edit and share them. The other new feature i.e auto-straightening, makes it very easy to straighten your photos during editing. With Auto Upload, you can always find your smartphone photos wherever you want — within the Flickr app and on Flickr.com. Have you ever framed up  the perfect photo but got bumped as you took the shot? It can be pretty frustrating. With the tap of a button, the Flickr app will instantly straighten your picture. It’s a tool that works like magic when your photo is just a little bit off. Today’s Flickr Mobile app update still does not bring native support for iPad. You can grab the free update for iPhone/iPod touch at the following App Store link: Download Flickr App for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad [Direct Link] Yahoo Adds Auto Upload and Auto Straightening Features To Flickr App for iOS is a post from: iPhone in Canada Blog - Canada's #1 iPhone Resource

Eight months later after dropping Prisoner Of Conscious, Talib Kweli is ready to drop another album scheduled for a December 15th release called Gravitas. This time around, he’s taking a different approach with how he’s going to connect with his fans.  According to him, when you pre-order his album, you will be buying it directly from him. This is definitely a test for Talib Kweli as he has always been the type to want to directly connect with the people. “Who needs this industry when we have each other. The technology exists for me to have this relationship with the fans, and vice versa,” Kweli adds. “Imagine me being able to look up every member of my fanbase on my iPhone and actually know who they are on a personal level,” he typed. “This is the dream I’ve always had. To be able to actually recognize you at the meet & greet. To be able to actually know how you were feeling yesterday because I’m following you on Instagram and Twitter. That’s why I’ve started this club. This is definitely an approach that most industry heads won’t take, because most artists are worried about numbers (thanks Soundscan). Talib Kweli has always been vocal on that aspect and decided to cut out ‘the middleman’. The idea that now fans can actually meet and greet Kweli and take photos with him is quite a dream come true, versus seeing him at a show with a stage — expanding the personal space between the artist & show attendee. He wants to meet YOU — the fan, live and direct. “I want to be able to say thank you, not just to a huge group of anonymous fans, but to specific ones that actually care about my career and the art that I’m sharing with the world.”  Go ahead and make a profile at #KweliClub and purchase Gravitas now!

Brandi Rhodes, the former WWE interviewer known as Eden Stiles and new wife of Cody Rhodes, has been mentioned often in the recent Rhodes family storyline. This week, she made her first official appearance as part of that storyline, being interviewed by WWE.com after Cody, Goldust and Dusty Rhodes won reinstatement to the WWE at Battleground. When asked how she felt about the Rhodes family’s redemption, Brandi said, “Oh my gosh, it was probably the most emotional thing that I have ever seen. I wish I was there, but then again, I would be crying on TV.” She continued, “I would have been just as happy to see either Dustin or Cody get the pin, but we are moving into a new generation of Rhodes and Cody put the stamp on it. Cody hit the Cross Rhodes in the middle of the ring and got the win for our family. No outside interference, no excuses. I am so proud of my husband.” WWE.com has also posted a gallery of photos from Brandi’s time with the WWE. Do you think Brandi should reappear on WWE TV?

If your calendar has a gaping void during Saturday the 12th (of October) then you should head to Corvallis. Starting at 1pm and running through 11pm, Block 15 presents Bloktoberfest - a little bit of Oktoberfest in downtown Corvallis. A quick history of Corvallis Joseph C. Avery settled a land claim at the mouth of Marys River where it flows into the Willamette River in 1845. In 1849, Avery opened a store at the site, platted the land, and surveyed a town site on his land claim, naming the community Marysville. It is possible that the city was named after early settler Mary Lloyd, but now the name is thought to be derived from French fur trappers' naming of Marys Peak after the Virgin Mary. In 1853, the legislative assembly changed the city's name to Corvallis, from the Latin phrase cor vallis, meaning "heart of the valley." Corvallis was incorporated as a city on January 29, 1857. The town served briefly as the capital of the Oregon Territory in 1855 before Salem was eventually selected as the permanent seat of state government. source, Wikipedia Today Corvallis is not only home to Oregon State University but also one of Western Oregon's most under appreciated breweries, Block 15. All the more reason to stop in Saturday October 12th for their 5th Annual Bloktoberfest. WSU Cougar fans might appreciate the fact that the game versus (naturally) Oregon State will be on the big screen, starting at 7:30pm. $5 gets you in from 1pm - 11pm. Featured at this year's event will be live music, food, games and of course beer. Included below is the current menu of beer (plus cider and wine) as well as the entertainment schedule.

You may mistake this for a high-tech medical laboratory, but it’s not. McLaren Automotive has quietly begun production of its P1 supercar at its state-of-the-art facility in Woking, United Kingdom. The carmaker posted photos on its Facebook page showing the immaculate assembly line of the McLaren P1. The 903hp supercar is built on a dedicated line at the McLaren Production Centre, where the 12C and 12C Spider are also manufactured. As previously announced, McLaren will only build 375 units of the hybrid supercar, which will make the P1 more exclusive than its main competitors, the Ferrari LaFerrari (499 units) and the Porsche 918 Spyder (918 units). McLaren has confirmed that most of the production run is already sold, with no cars left available for the United States, Asia and Middle East. Few cars remain for European clientele. The McLaren P1 features a hybrid powertrain combining a 3.8-liter twin-turbocharged V8 engine developing 727 hp and an electric motor producing 176 hp. Combined power output is 903 hp (917PS) and 900 Nm (664 lb-ft) of torque, catapulting the P1 from standstill to 100 km/h (62 mph) in under 3 seconds and allowing it to reach a top speed of 350 km/h (217 mph). Furthermore, the McLaren P1 accelerates from zero to 200 km/h (124 mph) in less than 7 seconds and on to 300 km/h (186 mph) in less than 17 seconds – that’s 5 seconds quicker than the legendary McLaren F1. The P1 has a starting price of £866,000 in the UK and $1,150,000 in the U.S. By Dan Mihalascu PHOTO GALLERY
