A laser hair removal device for use at home is on the way and promises to be very exciting. The price tag, however, is less so. I'm not sure how you'd laser your own back (sounds dangerous) so you might need someone to come over and play a different game of doctor than you're used to. [WWD]
Missoni will open its first hotel in Edinburgh, Scotland early next year, followed by a second in Kuwait. Wow, way to pick the hot, luxurious, travel destinations. We love Edinburgh (they have a bar called C.C. Blooms), and we haven't been to Kuwait (it's a little too close to Iraq for comfort), but those destinations aren't exactly Dubai or Saint-Tropez. [WWD]
Lensman Scott Schuman (pictured), a.k.a. The Sartorialist, announced that he will appear in fall ads for the GAP. How a man that well-dressed is straight is beyond me. (Did you see the story in Fantastic Man?) Come to the dark side, Scott. [Fashionista]
Which presidential candidate do your favorite mall clothiers support? Jezebel spent way too much time compiling this investigative report and we love them for it. [Jezebel]
Rumors of a 2nd generation iPhone are hitting all-time highs. A memo from UK mobile phone company 02 says that the 8GB iPhone and iPod Touch have reached "End of Life." While it sounds ominous, it just means they have sold out in the U.K. and will not be replenished. [Engadget]
