Watch CM Punk Cut the Best Promo of 2011

Posted on June 28th, by raymond padilla in TV, WWE. 9 comments

I was amazed by CM Punk’s promo on last night’s episode of Monday Night Raw. He expertly blended real-life happenings with his current angle of “leaving” the WWE. Not only was it clearly the best promo of 2011, but it was also one of the best I’ve seen in years. Highlights include:

I’ve never been a fan of T-Mobile’s MyTouch line. I don’t care for the industrial design and I hate the “Espresso” version of HTC Sense the phones use.

Here are a bunch of sexy images of the recently announced Nokia N9…which can also double as photos of the recently “leaked” Nokia Windows Phone Sea Ray. It’s such a good looking piece of hardware! It looks fantastic in all three colors. Right now I’m leaning towards the cyan model…but the black one looks so slick…and the magenta one will surely attract cute girls when I go to Asia. I want them all!

Which N9 color do you prefer?
