June 8, 2010 - iThought iSaw a new iPhone! (iDid!)

new iphone 4
As I am sure you have heard by now, Steve Jobs introduced his latest iPhone product yesterday: the iPhone 4. You can read more about it in the link, because all I can tell you is that it was preceded by the iPhone 3, will be followed by the iPhone 5, and will be very popular among first-adapters, but also face competition from various purported iPhone-killers in the following months to years.
obama reopens drilling
Busy day for our President, who vowed to lift the cap on offshore drilling penalties, gave a speech at a Michigan high school, and promised to find someone whose ass he could kick (presumedly relating to the oil spill, and not the high school.) He also said he would lift the current moratorium on offshore drilling to help employment prospects in the Gulf region. Sarah Palin said Obama should make the oil companies promise not to spill oil on any more animals...she's running out of things to hunt.
bryce harper stephen strasburg
As the Washington Nationals drafted the future future of their organization, a 17 year-old manchild named Bryce Harper, their current future, last year's draft's can't-miss phenom Stephen Strasburg will make his Major League debut tomorrow. So, things may be looking up for the people in our nation's capital, well, for everyone aside from the Dems facing re-election.
peruvian murder confession
Breaking news out of Peru, as Joran van der Sloot has apparently confessed to the murder of a Peruvian woman. Van der Sloot was the suspect in the Natalee Holloway case in Aruba. This little Dutch boy now should be going away for a long long time...although, Peruvian courts are notoriously easy on confessed murderers, so he may only get 35 years.
helen thomas retires
In another sad story, journalist Helen Thomas has announced her retirement after over 50 years covering the White House, effective immediately, after coming under criticism for recent remarks about Israel. Of course, she is 89 years old, so not only can we blame some of what she says on her age, but, come on, maybe it was time to retire anyways.

elton john rush limbaugh wedding
That's right, Rush Limbaugh has not only come out of the closet, but he has announced his engagement to legendary musician Elton John...no, wait, apparently he's just paying Elton John an outrageous sum of money to play at his upcoming wedding, and to not "act gay" while doing so.
woody harrelson soccer goal
I don't know about you, but I didn't even have to read this story...as soon as I saw the picture of Woody Harrelson playing in some type of soccer match in front of a crowd 65,000-plus, I was so freaked out, I temporarily forgot how to read.
boston restroom restaurants
Either they are running out of places to house restaurants in Boston, or the current standards for restaurant space are not very high.
blagojevich jury funny
Oh, college kids, they say the darndest things, especially when they are really drunk on random Tuesday afternoons...but, also when they are trying to get out of jury duty.
addicted to electronics
I figure as long as you are sitting here reading a blog on your electronic computer device with a headline about the latest in electronic devices, let's have an article about people being addicted to electronic computer devices.
Still, in my opinion the finest innovation by Apple: the iPod shuffle. I mean, I loved carrying around those huge Discmans back in the day as much as the next guy, but in some ways, it's nice to have an mp3 player so small that you often misplace it.
