White Collar star Matt Bomer looked dapper.

Johnny Depp rocks his usual Bohemian-Eclectic style with his long hair, glasses, chain, boots, and overall relaxed look., complete with no tie. His label… all Ralph Lauren Black Label. With Martin Katz cufflinks. He opted for a shawl-collared jacket instead of the traditional notch-lapel.

Ryan Gosling was hands down one of my favorites in a black velvet Ferragamo suit, a white shirt with pearl buttons by Lavin, Hugo Boss black velvet bow tie, and black patent leather Ferragamos

Inception star, Joseph Gordon-Levitt always brings it. Matter of fact he needs his own Urban Gentleman style profile very soon. Like a few others he donned navy at the Golden Globes.  To be more specific a two-button notch lapel Prada suit. With a red button… I wonder what the button stands for– it looks good though.

Best Supporting actor winner Christian Bale and wife Sibi Blazic. They've been matching in black all award-season long, maybe they'll switch it up for the Oscars, who knows. Christian hit the red carpet in Dolce & Gabbana from head to toe: black peal lapel tuxedo, black shirt, black tie, and black shoes. ( I do love a nice Dolce suit). Cartier cufflinks and watch.

And Christian's Fighter co-star Mark Walhberg mixes it up a bit (designer wise): Giorgio Armani tuxedo, shirt, black bow-tie, and Martin Katz cufflinks. His wife Rhea Durham looks great too.

Samsung Gives Apple a Run for Their Money: Samsung 9-series and Galaxy Tab

Photobucket

The new Samsung 9-series

The age old "Mac vs PC" debate/rival has been nearly pointless to some, as Apple has shown that Macs are truly in a league of their own, and Apple's monumental success in the past decade has solidified that truth. But these days, companies are just saying "f*ck it, if we can't beat em, let's join em". And that's EXACTLY what Samsung is doing. Two of their most recent products — the Samsung Galaxy  Tab and Samsung 9-series not only rival Apple's iPad and Airbook, but many (yes many) boost that they outshine them too.

Sidenote: I wish Samsung would send us "samples" to review these products first hand, but for now we'll give you the specs, photos, and links. (if any Samsung rep is reading this article, we'd LOVE to try out these products… that goes for Apple too *wink wink*)

Samsung Galaxy Tab

To sum it all up, the  Samsung Galaxy Tab is smaller and lighter, and it has the same speed processor but twice the RAM. Like the iPad, the Galaxy Tab comes with different options for internal storage. It also supports up to 32GB of expandable storage; (The iPad is limited to the internal space only.)

You know how Apple is infamous for leaving off features that they could easily include, just to make you buy the new one? (Case in point: leaving video-recording off the iPhone and a camera off the iTouch when they first came out). Well, The Galaxy Tab gives us the best they have to offer on the first go-round with TWO cameras — a rear-facing 3.2-megapixel camera and a front-facing 1.3-megapixel camera for video chatting — and of course the Apple iPad has none (even though we all know that it could). Samsung's Galaxy Tab states that it has 7 hours of video playback, while the iPad states that it can last up to 10 hours.

As far as software goes, the Galaxy Tab's Android 2.2 operating system totes many features or "selling points" that Apple's iPad lacks, like full-featured multitasking, support for Adobe Flash, GPS on all the models, and unrestricted access to applications.

Don't get me wrong, I love a Mac (I'm using a MacBook Pro right now, and I have the new iTouch) but I love that Apple has some competition, it'll make them give us all the best features at once instead of over a span of 2-3 years. And this Galaxy Tab seems to be a mix of the iPad and Amazon Kindle with lots of extra bonuses. PLUS you can get it through a number of outlets (basically every network: Verizon, Sprint, T-mobile, etc).

Though I would usually choose a Mac, in the case of the touch-screen tablets, Samsung Galaxy Tab seems to win because of its size, two-cameras, and support of flash — so I can watch all my Adobe Flash supported online TV shows and movies without getting the dreaded "Flash Player not available for your device" message. I can totally respect Apple for wanting Adobe to improve on its product, but I mean…. I needs my Flash on my iTouch, lol, and in this case iPad. With that said, Apple is an American company, so that alone might just lead me to purchase an iPad instead and tolerate its lack of Adobe Flash support… extra stress on the "might".

Samsung 9-series.

The Samsung Air, I mean, Samsung 9-series ;-) , gives it to us again by rivaling the MacBook Air and becoming the world's thinnest laptop. Its dapper black outer-casing is said to be made out of Duraluminum, which Samsung claims is the same kind used for building aircrafts… some folks think it's just brushed aluminum, I say it's easier to just believe them.  The 9-series also has better speakers than the MacBook Air and comes with higher RAM, but besides that they're virtually the same.

So this just comes down to PC vs Mac -or- silver laptop vs black laptop. While I think Samsung's Galaxy Tab pretty much beats the Apple iPad, I think the MacBook Air still sorta beats the Samsung 9-series… just because it's still a Mac at the end of the day (that's just me though, the person who's using a Mac right now).

David Beckham & Zac Efron Latest Haircuts

Most of the time when men think about updating or simply changing their look, they think about clothes and shoes. But it goes beyond that and can include your hair too. Check out the latest updates in hair cuts from Urban Gents David Beckham and Zac Efron.

Photobucket

Zac attends the 2011 People's Choice Awards.

Zac Efron is consistently switching up his hair cut, and I love it. He hands down does one of the best job of stylishly changing up his hair compared to other famous celebs with his hair type. Zac's new hairstyle is a simple, clean tapered/crew cut, which is very different from his last cut. I wonder if he's playing in an army movie or something? That would possibly explain the total opposite new look.

Photobucket

Zac's mid to end of 2010 hair cut. This was one of my favorite looks from him… with the full beard and mustache — it was very masculine, but in a more polished than scruffy way (which I liked). I honestly thought he would keep this look all winter.

Photobucket

The new cut is very Matt Damon-like, huh?

David sports his new hair cut as he watches the Detroit Pistons vs Los Angeles Lakers game at the Staples Center

Though we all love the style of David Beckham, I just can't get with his latest hairstyle. The part in the middle with medium length hair on the sides… idk, it doesn't suit him.

  Photobucket

The usual David Beckham cut (the one he had for over a year, 2009-2010). This has become a common stylish haircut option for famous entertainers.

Photobucket

The more I look at it, the more it sooorta grows on me. But I just feel like the hairstyle takes away from his look. I guess it's very surfer/California like…. which goes along with him being in Cali. There's also this sorta of satiric English gentleman type thing about it too, and I guess that's the part that is throwing me off.
