iPad 2 is fun for me and fun for you

In traditional Apple fashion the iPad 2 was announced the day after our show recoreded
last Wednesday.  The slick lil' bugger sports a dual core A5 processor, 2 cameras, a new
magnetic Smart Cover (that puts the iPad to sleep when attached) and is 33% thinner and
15% lighter to boot.  iOS 4.3 is set to release on Wednesday to accompany what is sure 
to be another successful rollout for Apple.

Monkeys in pirate suits confiscated in La.

 

 

 

 

NEW ORLEANS, March 2 (UPI) --

Louisiana wildlife officials confiscated four monkeys in pirate costumes

from an autistic woman visiting New Orleans for Carnival.

 

Joan Newberger, 66, and her caretaker, James Poole,

said they and the four monkeys were dressed as pirates on Bourbon Street

during the weekend when police and wildlife agents approached them and seized the small primates,

WWLT-TV, New Orleans, reported Wednesday.

 

Newberger said the seizure was illegal because the primates are registered as her

"service monkeys" with a group in Texas.

 

However, the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries said the monkeys

do not meet the Americans with Disabilities Act's definition of service animals.

Possession of primates has been illegal in Louisiana since 2006.

Newberger is scheduled to appear in the Orleans Parish Municipal Court

in July to attempt to get her monkeys back.

"This isn't some wild animal that we snatched out of the swamp in New Orleans

and we're running around making money on it," Poole said.

 

 

Calif. company sells Sheen-inspired drink

 

 

 

 

SANTA MONICA, Calif., March 8 (UPI) --

Inspired by a Charlie Sheen rant,

U.S. energy drink company Harcos Laboratories Tuesday began selling Tiger Blood,

"made of 100 percent passion."

 

The Santa Monica, Calif., company,

founded by a pair of self-described robotics industry geeks in 2007,

brought out the limited-edition energy shot "in honor of a certain celebrity outburst.

" The 3.4-ounce shots, containing 80 mg of caffeine,

come in an intravenous bag-style container and sell for $3.99.

 

The company Web site says the product is "made of 100 percent passion."

Sheen, who was fired from the CBS sit-com "Two-and-a-Half Men"

following weeks of erratic behavior, recently proclaimed he has "tiger blood" and "Adonis DNA."



Robber changes mind, waits for police





MADISON, Wis., March 8 (UPI) -- Police in Wisconsin said a would-be robber handed over his

weapon and waited for police because he "just couldn't go through with a planned holdup."

The Madison Police Department said Joseph Colquitt, 34, entered the Walgreens store at East

Campus Mall at about 8:30 a.m. Friday and quickly changed his mind about plans to rob the store,

The Capital Times, Madison, reported Tuesday.

"He opened his backpack and turned over a large knife to the clerk, telling the befuddled would-be

victim he just couldn't go through with a planned holdup," police spokesman Joel DeSpain said.

DeSpain said Colquitt told the clerk to "take the knife and my backpack and do what you have to do."

"The suspect then waited for officers to arrive and make the arrest," DeSpain said.

Colquitt was arrested on suspicion of disorderly conduct while armed and a parole violation.
