The 2013 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue cover model was leaked earlier today with Kate Upton appearing topless in Antarctica for the “Polar Bare’ themed shoot. It’s her third consecutive appearance as the cover model joining an illustrious list of models who appeared on the cover multiple years in a row. The big surprise was scheduled to be revealed on The Late Show with David Letterman on Monday, February 11, but there will be no surprise anymore. The issue will be out on newsstands February 12, and we feel Alabama bombshell Katherine Webb should have been on the cover, but congrats to Kate Upton!

Just landed - Galileo, a vatting of different styles of Ardbeg put to rest in 1999, is a combination of spirits that have been matured in ex-Marsala wine casks or in ex-bourbon casks. Together they create a sweet, smokey whiskey. The few thousand cases of the 12 year old whiskey made available are being picked up quickly and the space experiment that it was named after is going strong. Invited by US Space Research Company, NanoRacks LLC, Ardbeg has been taking place in an experiment to test micro organic compounds in a maturation experiment since 2011. Perfect for your New Year’s Eve party!

OK that is officially the coolest Foursquare check-in ever, edging past NASA’s Space Station check-ins. Next question: Does Mars have any good bars or restaurants Curiosity can snag check-in discounts at? -Stacy
Dubbed by Forbes as a company that ‘gets’ social media, KLM, Royal Dutch Airlines has steadily rolled out creative campaigns and service since 2009. In a series of blog posts the company described their initial days in social media as a period to “observe, listen, and learn.” The company kept a low profile until the now infamous eruption of the Icelandic volcano Eyjafjallajökull that brought international air traffic to a stand still. In their efforts to inform and rebook 50,000 passengers KLM took to their social media channels. The method of communication proved to be practical, effective, and appreciated by customers. In 2009 KLM had two staff members assigned to social media. Now there are over 50.
To match the creativity of prior campaigns, such as the mile-high dance party “Fly2Miami,” earlier this year KLM started a program that allowed passengers to pick their seat mate by comparing social media profiles. The newest spoke of the social media wheel was just announced on Facebook Monday: Flynt the new Social Media V.I.P. (Very Interactive puppet.)
Judging by his Facebook profile, Flynt appears to be an active puppet who spends time fishing a drinking coffee. As of Tuesday evening he had close to 1,500 Facebook likes, setting himself up to be a fun social media marketing force even Jim Henson would be proud of.
