Lots of Elvis news this week: Elvis Presley's gold piano, recently on display at the Country Music Hall of Fame, was put on eBay with expectations that it could sell for as much as $3.5 million. London's Daily Mail ran a lengthy piece about the bromance between Elvis and Tom Jones and their mutual dislike of John Lennon. And, according to a Georgia newspaper, a pair of socks that once graced the King's feet were reported stolen in August when an eBay deal went bad.

Who wants to buy Pat Halloran's used iPhone 4? Last week, the Orpheum CEO's old iPhone went up for grabs at the downtown theater's weekly online auction.
