Ryan Seacrest Invests $1 Million In An IPhone Case

The 40th American Music Awards - Arrivals

Ryan Seacrest is a genius. You know it, he knows it, and now the consumer electronics industry knows it. Ryan just invested a mighty $1 million in an iPhone case, and it’s such a great idea it’ll probably be bigger than the Kardashians in about a year.

Ryan and friend Laurence Hollier have created the Typo Keyboard case. It’s an iPhone case that slides a Blackberry-esque keyboard onto your phone, thus eliminating one of the biggest gripes of Apple users. It’ll make the iPhone a little friendlier for employees who use their phones to write tons of emails.

The case will debut in January, and will retail for $99. While there are similar keyboard cases on the market, Ryan and Laurence have improved the concept so the case is thin and the keyboard responds faster.

First Look At New American Idol Judges

FOX announced Sunday that Nicki Minaj and Keith Urban were officially joining Mariah Carey and Randy Jackson as judges on American Idol. Shortly after that announcement, the show’s longtime host Ryan Seacrest shared the first shot of the brand-new foursome at the judges’ table via Facebook. “After some musical chairs, here’s how the new American Idol judges will be seated,” Seacrest, 37, wrote beneath a photo of Carey, 42, Urban, 44, Minaj, 29 and Jackson, 56, sitting down together (with Seacrest standing above) in midtown NYC.

“With the exciting addition of Mariah Carey, Keith Urban and Nicki Minaj, alongside Randy Jackson, American Idol’s star power has never been so great,” executive producer Simon Fuller said in a statement. With the addition of these new judges, this promises to be a very entertaining season!
