    Pretty much. Sit and do nothing, or -- at least -- nothing consequential.

    That is a new one to me. It seems like something an advertiser made up.

    It means Britney's single is now in first place instead of the other one.

    It means she (her record) is in first place.

    I would say it means the Lakers have been "dethroned". In other words, they are no longer the champions.

    "From that point on" means from that time until now.

    I agree with Ron's comments. "The cell phone shuffle" refers to changing from one company to another every time a new deal comes out. :wink:
