would you kindly help with this? thanks^^

1. Girls don't have to sit around anymore waiting for guys to ask them out.

q1: sit around---sit a place and do nothing??


2.Do the cell phone shuffle with a new phone and service plan.

q2: shuffle??


3.Britney's single knocked previous chart-topper Mario Winans' I Don't Wanna Know into second place.

q3: knocked here means criticize or hit, strike...?


4.Britney takes UK singles top slot

q4: slot??


5.Palace coup

q5: coup---something suddenly be changed?

( it's the headline of nba's official website, when Pistons defeated Lakers)


6.From that point on

q6: from that point of view?

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:
