Don't Mess with Saif Gaddafi. He Carries Guns. [Dictator Style]


Following our story about two of Colonel Gaddafi's sons treating America as their playground a magazine reports that Saif has been shooting up parts of Europe recently too, along with some intriguing playmates.

British magazine The Spectator is set to report tomorrow that Saif went on a shooting trip with Peter Mandelson (who has about a million government titles but is pretty much the power behind British Prime Minister Gordon Brown) and Cherie Blair (wife of former PM Tony) at the Rothschild estate in Buckinghamshire. He brought his own guns in, through the airport. Which seems a little edgy to us. The story is by former Daily Telegraph editor Charles Moore and continues with these intriguing titbits:

Now that Libya has made its strange bargain with the West, Saif has taken up our traditional upper-class sport with delight. Near Tripoli, he has laid down 40,000 partridges. Unfortunately, raptors have consumed about half of them, but Saif invited friends, including Flavio Briatore of Formula 1 fame, to a shoot there a few weeks back, with lunch in a desert tent, and the bag was about 300. More recently, Saif was shooting in Spain, the guest of Alejandro Agag. Mr Agag is a businessman - managing director of Queen's Park Rangers [a London soccer team], among other things - who used to be secretary-general of the European People's Party in the European parliament. He is a friend of Silvio Berlusconi and is married to the daughter of José Maria Aznar, the former prime minister of Spain (Tony Blair was at the wedding). Saif comes to England to shoot quite often, though I gather he has got into a bit of trouble about his guns with the airport authorities.

Let's hope he's not allowed to bring his guns into the US. His brother Hannibal has already pulled a 9mm pistol on police in France and attacked others in Italy with a fire extinguisher. If you've heard anything else juicy about Saif, his brother or any other dictator-offspring, drop us an email here.

Over A Year After Android Launch, ShopSavvy Finally Comes To The iPhone

ShopSavvy was one of the best early Android applications. It launched in October of last year after winning one of the initial Android Developer Challenge top prizes (when it was still known as GoCart). But despite the success it has seen on Android, one question remained: When would it be available for the iPhone. Today, it finally is. Developed by the guys at Big In Japan , ShopSavvy is an app that allows you to use your device as a portable barcode scanner. You point your phone's camera at any barcode and it will read it, do a product look up, and give you information about the product, as well as where you can find it online or at nearby stores and for how much. Obviously, something like this is a window shopper's dream. ShopSavvy was one of the best early Android applications.

Lindsay Lohan Breakup Confirmed by Lohan, Locksmith, Police [Gossip Roundup]

Farewell, last season's Suri Cruise fashions. Goodbye, Amy Winehouse's bathing suit. Adieu, humanoid version of Lauren Conrad. And so long, LiLo and SamRon's fairytale romance. Lindsay Lohan confirmed her split with Samantha Ronson and insisted the decision was part of a very healthy and mature effort to " focus on myself ." Upon hearing this, Ronson changed her locks and discussed a restraining order with police, so confident was she in Lohan's ability to turn productively inward. Lohan promptly had a run-in with the police . Who would have imagined such a messy breakup for this model relationship? Courtney Love's lawyer, on her client's drug-fueled plunge into broke-ness: ""Courtney noticed the money was gone when there wasn't any left."
