China says light up

Published on .

The municipal government in China's capital city of Beijing has ordered owners of broken illuminated ad signs to repair them without delay.

Interact with Fabio. No, really
Some might call it a logical progression. Fabio, that romance novel coverboy, on Jan. 13 makes his debut as co-host of a new interactive TV show called "It's Not About Sex." The participatory game show, created by GTE mainStreet, asks such questions as "Which wife of Tom Cruise publicly complained about his performance in bed?" (We're guessing it's his ex.) Amazingly, this gig is not a stretch for Fabio, who, we're told, has an engineering background and is an avid technophile. We assume he got those amazing pecs from benchpressing Macs.
