Robert Pattinson Grabs a Handful of FKA Twigs's Butt By Clip Syndicate Robert Pattinson got touchy feely with FKA Twigs on Friday. PDA aside, the British duo kept the afternoon casual, donning workout gear and sweaters to take in the brisk weather and sip on coffee. We first caught a glimpse of the duo's romance in September, when Robert and FKA Twigs took a stroll through NYC. Despite the excitement of their newfound love, the couple has faced a backlash on the Internet. Earlier this month, FKA Twigs addressed the negative comments about their relationship in an interview she gave while promoting her latest album, LP1. She said, "I really enjoy the fun of putting something out and people liking it or hating it or talking about it, but vacuous attention, it feels disgusting. It's like a hangover. It's weird, I know that's not really because of me or what I'm doing."

Content Insider #366 - Holiday Travel By Miles Weston Work is grinding to a halt around the office as everyone does their holiday shopping. Not on their computers because IT can track where people are surfing (not that they do) but with their BYODs (bring your own device). They can shop in the bathroom, boring meetings, while someone else drives home. It's going to be Thanksgiving eating/shopping at all the same time. Every retailer (WW) wants to be 1st in your pocket. Can't wait ultil next year's Labor Day BBQ/black friday. Of course then they'll just go into your mobile device, tell you what you purchased (and or whom) and make their mobile withdrawal.

Report: Facebook at Work Set to Do the Business Like LinkedIn By Clip Syndicate Facebook co-founder Mark Zuckerberg is known for his signature tee-shirts -- but he could be after the suit-and-tie crowd. For most of us, using Facebook at work means scrolling through the pictures of your friend's birthday party and getting in a couple of rounds of Farmville when you're meant to be working on the Henderson presentation.

But the world's biggest social network reportedly wants to make things more professional, taking on LinkedIn with Facebook at Work. According to the Financial Times, Facebook is developing a new site that features a similar newsfeed and groups to the current friends and family-based social network, but enables you to collaborate with colleagues and keep in touch with professional contacts. Your personal Facebook feed -- including potentially embarrassing photos, drunken posts and other personal stuff -- would be kept separate.
