Most familiar through Apple's iPhone, and now the iPad ? though the latter is more a tool than a phone while the former is a like the Swiss Army Knife of telephony ? smart phones are becoming necessary tools for today's busy and connected citizen.

Sir Elton was widely criticized for accepting a reported $1 million for performing at Limbaugh's fourth wedding. He entertained Limbaugh's more than 400 wedding guests into the wee hours. The 63-year-old Sir Elton entered a UK civil partnership with filmmaker David Furnish in 2005. The couple welcomed a baby boy on Christmas Day. In a new interview with Rolling Stone, Sir Elton said he believes Limbaugh is not anti-gay and supports gay unions. ?I could not believe when I was asked to play,? he said. ?I thought it was a joke. I had dialogue with him before and he said, 'I'm not anti-gay, I want you to come, bring David.' My goal is for Rush to say, 'I support civil partnerships,' and if I rang him right now, I think he might agree. He was one of the first people to congratulate us on the baby.?
