So, Steve announced at WWDC that Apple has renamed the iPhone OS “iOS” ( a name owned by Cisco, yes the same Cisco that originally owned the name “iPhone”) and version 4 will be available to the public June 21st. For the first time ever the new OS upgrade will be free for iPod Touch owners (Yay!). Click here for the full story @ Engadget.
The New York Times reports today that people who surround themselves with tech gadgets have trouble focusing and switching tasks. Color me shocked, who would have thought that when you surround yourself with devices that allow you access to virtually unlimited amounts of information and entertainment 24/7/365 your ability to concentrate might be affected?

ASUS Eee Keyboard:
I still have both of my ‘80s vintage Commodore computers (C-64, Amiga 500) in the basement and I’m semi-intrigued by the new Commodore units but not $900.00 intrigued. The Commodore Invictus appears to be a “homage” to ASUS Eee Keyboard which is an entire computer inside a keyboard. The blank spot on the far right is actually an LCD display. Click here to see the new Commodore line-up.

A Minnesota teen had to have one of his testicles removed after a falling victim to a “sack tapping”. I’m thinking somebody is unclear on the definition of the word “tap”. Not only has the poor bastard lost a nut but he’s going to have to move away after high school or face listening to one nut jokes for the rest of his life.

Joran Van Der Sloot the prime suspect in the 2005 disappearance of Natalee Holloway in Aruba is now wanted by Peruvian authorities in connection with the death of a young woman whose bloody corpse was found in his Lima hotel room. When I heard this I had to put CNN’s house harpy on to see if her head would explode live on air.
No such luck.I don’t know why Nancy Grace hates Van Der Sloot so much, he’s the best thing that’s ever happened to her career. Frankly I don’t think she wants this guy locked up, as long as he’s free she can keep flogging the corpse of Natalee Holloway for ratings like she’s been doing for the last five years. Grace and Van Der Sloot have become some sort of sociopathic killer/ attention whoring TV lawyer hybrid creature that really needs to nuked from orbit. It’s the only way to be sure.

Paris Hilton, the Grande Dame of Hollywood celebutards, kicked off New York City’s annual Fleet Week celebration by giving a solemn vow to “Personally service all of the brave men, and women, who serve our country.” Sailors and Marines lined up for days to receive their personal “Thank You” from Ms. Hilton before returning to sea for an additional six months of rum, sodomy and the lash.
