Transmit Thursday. We're transmitting all kinds of things to get this day started, first with a pair of Google sneakers that might give Master P's horrific kicks a run for their money. Speaking of kicks, it seems like Jada Pinkett-Smith feels like kicking celebrity bullies and haters to the side and sticking up for Rihanna amongst others. Somebody might need to stick up for T.I. and Tiny working out some problems because it sounds like they're having issues. All this coming up in SOHH Whatcha Think.

1. Google Me Crazy

Google just doesn't know when to stop. The mega search engine that's become a standard for practically everyone has tried to outdo itself each year with GMail, a social networking platform and even a phone. But rest assured, if things go accordingly, you will be able to get your very own pair of Google sneakers in the very, very, very near future. Giant Life has more:


If you've been keeping up with Google over the past few months, you would know the big news coming from them is the upcoming release of Google Glass. Wearers of the Google Glass will be able to take pics, record video and search online with the glasses on. Taking the shine away from Google Glass at the moment at SXSW is the Google sneaker. Google has no plans on jumping in the sneaker biz but they want to promote the awareness of new advertising innovation program called "Art, Copy and Code." [The Talking Shoe is an experiment in how you can use connected objects to tell stories on the Web today," Aman Govil, lead of the advertising arts team, told ABC News.] The team over at Google decided to piece together a few pairs of Adidas added speakers, Bluetooth, an accelerometer, a pressure sensor and a computer to create the first ever Google sneaker. The sneaker can distinguish who you are by sending messages to your shoe with information from your phone via Bluetooth or though the sneakers speaker on the tongue. Google wants to figure out technology on sneakers, how wearable a "smartsneaker" would be, and how it would interact with the human body if worn everyday. The sneaker is also said to be able to send out messages and updates via Google Plus not sure how true that is, but that's the word from SXSW. Would you wear them if they were available in stores? (Giant Life)

Whew. Close one. It really started to sound like Google wanted to take a little slice out of the sneaker industry pie. Who knows, maybe they'll really consider putting out their own kicks. If the Jordan brand could get over $200-plus for a pair of J's, can you imagine Google "not" wanting some? #SOHHWhatchaThink?

2. Stop, Look & Listen

It seems when she's not busy raising superstar kids, Jada Pinkett Smith has time to do some blogging and her most recent write-up had a very heavy emphasis on celebrity bullying. Specifically? Rihanna. Sinous Mag has the inside:


What perfect timing Mama Jada has! Following Justin Bieber allegedly attacking paparazzi in London and Taylor Swift defending herself last week, Jada Pinkett Smith has had enough of watching grown folks bully young celebrities in the media and on social media platforms. The actress/activist dropped yet another gem of knowledge this Sunday in defense of the two, as well as Rihanna, who has come under scrutiny for re-kindling her relationship with troubled boyfriend Chris Brown, and Quvenzhané Wallis, the nine-year-old Best Actress nominee who has been disrespected on several levels already. Of course, these young stars are just a few of many that we've seen built up by media and fans, only to be pulled down by the same -- many of which are adults who should know better. (Sinous Mag)

You are going to have to actually go to the link to read Jada's post from start to finish, but it's actually a pretty good one. As much as we love bullying Rihanna and might think she puts it on herself with those antics, sometimes we all get a bit carried away. Make sure to read Jada's post, she uses some pretty strong expressions and brings up a few excellent points. #SOHHWhatchaThink?

3. Trouble Man

Is T.I. in trouble, man? Seems like the couple everyone loves and probably the only one aside from Jay-Z and Beyoncé which never seem to get into any big issues are having some things going down. Turns out their story book relationship may have a few cracks in it. Media Take Out is all over this:


March 14, 2013: It really HURTS OUR HEART to have to report this . .. but . . . according to a person IN THE KNOW, rapper TI and his wife Tiny are having some MARITAL STRIFE. The insider, who spoke to on the condition on anonymity, tells us that the pair has been arguing MORE THAN USUAL since making the move out to Los Angeles. And that people close to the couple fear that the two may be headed for DIVORCE. And last night, TI appeared to CONFIRM what we were hearing. Peep what he sent out to fans via Instagram. He deleted the posts HOURS LATER when Twitter followers began asking if he and Tiny were SPLITTING UP. (Media Take Out)

Hopefully this is all just a big misunderstanding. As much as women would love to see T.I. hit the open market, the family he has created with Tiny seems so special, you would hate to see them split up for good. #SOHHWhatchaThink?

That about wraps it up for today. This is SOHH On The Spot giving you the morning scoop from your favorite gossip sites.
