Shu Qi caught in disputes

29 Mar – It seems that the rumoured disputes between "Ip Man" star Donnie Yen and "Once Upon a Time in China" star may be much more serious than they seem when reported last, with Taiwanese actress Shu Qi being the latest victim, according to Asia One.

The "A Beautiful Life" star was attacked by Zhao's fans online following her open support of Yen's professional attitude.

"He is very serious about every scene so that it is beautifully presented to the audiences," posted Shu Qi on March 20 on her Weibo.

"Even though he was shivering in the cold weather and suffering from cramps, he did his best to carry on shooting whenever he heard the word 'Actor!'"

She added, "He is a good big brother, good actor and good man."

Zhao supporters then responded by anonymously reposting her old nude photos on her page, saying they were for 're-visiting'.

The incident caused the 36-year-old actress to delete all her posts and followers on Weibo.

For those who are unaware, it was said that Yen and Zhao had disagreements and differences of opinions while working on their new film "Special Identity".

Sources stated that the disputes began when Zhao was replaced by Hong Kong actor Andy On due to his diva-like attitude. He refused to follow orders given by Yen, who is the producer, action director and lead actor in the film.

However, according to Zhao,it was Yen who was at fault as he changed the script frequently and without notice, as well as reducing his parts.

Yen has already threatened legal action against Zhao for defamation.

    Ford Transit Skyliner concept revives the ultra-luxury van

    “Once you do stand-up, you don’t want to go back.” No, we’re not talking about comedy, but rather an emerging trend in luxury transport that’s bringing us ever taller, more capacious, more pimpdillyicious limousines. The quote came from a Ford designer, Tim Stoehr, predicting an increase in interest in limos based on big vans like the new Transit. Of course, these are nothing new; up-fitters have taken quite kindly to the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter, and apparently Ford is chomping at the bit to get in on the action, too. So Ford enlisted the help of the largest Ford dealer in the world, Galpin Auto Sports in Van Nuys, Calif., to help design and build its first super-lux Transit concept, dubbed the Skyliner.

    Automakers worldwide have gradually (some would say grudgingly) attempted to make their high-profit and highly popular SUVs as efficient and clean-running as their lower weight passenger cars — namely through the grafting of a plug-in hybrid system.

    Amazon to release smartphone later this year: report

    Amazon is preparing to release a smartphone in the second half of 2014, thrusting itself into a market already crowded with Apple and Samsung models, The Wall Street Journal reported. The company aims to announce its new product by the end of June and ship to customers by the end of September in time for the holidays, the Journal said in a Friday report, citing unnamed people briefed on the matter. Amazon, it said, hopes to differentiate its phone from other models with a screen that displays hologram-like three-dimensional images, which can be viewed without special glasses. Earlier this month the retailer unveiled a new media streaming device, Amazon Fire TV, which it touted as simplifying the experience of watching video online.

    One dead as S. Korea ferry with 476 passengers sinks

    South Korea's coastguard said Wednesday one person had been killed as it struggled to rescue 476 people -- mostly high school students -- aboard a ferry that ran aground and sank off the southern coast. "The ferry is almost completely submerged," Lee said, adding that a detachment of South Korean Navy SEALS were taking part in the rescue. Of the 450 passengers on board the ferry bound for the southern resort island of Jeju, 325 were students from a high school in Ansan, south of Seoul. The 6,825-tonne ferry, which had sailed out of the western port of Incheon on Tuesday evening, ran into trouble some 20 kilometres (13 miles) off the island of Byungpoong.
