Correct me if I'm wrong, but as I understand it, there's no technological reason Siri couldn't run on previous-gen iPhones - the 4s restriction is strictly a marketing decision to twist people's arms into upgrading. If any other company had done this, everyone would be crying out "I call shenanigans."

A little something to fight off the Monday doldrums -- Gary Moore's harder-edged version of the Easybeats' Friday on My Mind.

OK - Mel Gibson is developing a movie about Jewish warrior Judah Maccabee, to be written by the scribe who created Basic Instinct and Showgirls. What could go wrong?

Mitt Romney on his 150-page jobs plan: "If you don't happen to get one in your hand you can go to Amazon Kindle and you can get one of these... it's in color on Kindle."

"There once was a girl from Paree, who wanted a brand new TV, but she found 3D glasses, were pains in the asses, so she settled for plain old HD."

You have to love local news broadcasts. I know Hurricane Irene may flatten my Long Island home like a 100-year-old pancake, but crying wolf when the predicted storm path stretches from destroying western Pennsylvania to dribbling off with little drama well east of Montauk seems like ratings-grabbing rather than public-serving.

Tomorrow's news headlines: Steve Jobs resigned to run the new government in Libya. First action of new regime: Islam is now iSlam.

Yesterday I got an email with the subject line "Cybersecurity: Are Consumers Exposing Themselves?" Today I get a press release from a company called MountMe. Am I on the R-rated PR list?

Best email subject line in this morning's inbox: a press release entitled "Cybersecurity: Are Consumers Exposing Themselves?"
