Mediaite reports, along with the rest of the news outlets on the Eastern Seaboard that there was a 5.8 magnitude earthquake with an epicenter in Mineral, Virginia, that was felt as far as New York, Boston, Toronto, and a host of other cities.

Sweet! Geekosystem reports that US Airways will outfit its employees with iPads in an effort to create a “paperless cockpit.” No word on whether or not distracted pilots reading Glamour and The Help will start crashing into each other all the time. To read the full post, click here.

In other EARTH SHATTERING NEWS (nailed it!), Gossip Cop confirms that the WORLD PREMIERE for “Breaking Dawn Part 1” will be November 14th, four days before the film officially opens on the 18th. Will we be able to handle it? We still have a few months to prepare. Get the full post here.

Hahahahaha: Mogulite tells us that, while residents of the Pentagon cried “evacuate!” during this afternoon’s earthquake, the rallying cry at the New York Stock Exchange was “Keep trading!” Good on those traders for not allowing themselves to be rattled (sorry) or shaken up (double sorry).
