At 10:30 a.m. PDT today, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg will announce "simpler privacy controls." The popular social-networking site has recently come under fire for sharing users' personal data with advertisers and secretly adding apps pages to profile pages if you browse the Web while logged into an account.

Even a few Facebook employees are upset over privacy settings that could expose sensitive information. Sounds like we could really use that "dislike" button right about now. Head over to CNET live blog for the full story.

If you thought the metrosexual movement couldn't get any worse, you clearly haven't stepped into a man-heel, the newest fashion statement coming out of the U.K. The "meel," as it's called, is a male version of the high-heeled shoe, and guys across the world are flocking to the trend for the height enhancement and the aesthetic appeal.

Jeff might have some difficulty grasping the tumultuous ups and downs of fashion, but surely he has more in common with yet another men's fashion movement that stands opposite the metrosexuals in the sartorial battlefield: Long live the Menaissance. Instead of focusing too much on manscaping and accessories, the new "retrosexual man" is inspired by the dapper men of the 1950s and 1960s. Looking a lot like Don Draper in "Mad Men," these alpha males represent the tough-guy response to an even tougher economy, but Jeff still doesn't get it.
