Netflix To Offer Family Plans
  http://www.urbanmoms.ca/chef_dad/family-ties.jpg
Netflix will introduce additional streaming plans later this year that will offer the
ability to stream to multiple devices simultaneously, according to a FAQ for investors
published on the company’s website. Details are still to be determined, but the
offering could look like a cell phone family plan, with an option to add
additional accounts at a lower price point.
Family plans with separate profiles for each family member could also help Netflix
make better use of its recommendation engine, leveraging its upcoming integration
with Facebook. Netflix is reportedly working on a deep integration of the social network,
making it possible to connect your Netflix and your Facebook account and share your
Netflix viewing choices with your Facebook friends — something you might be more
comfortable with if the questionable choices of your offspring don’t show up
in your Facebook news stream.

iPhone stalking now made easier




Two security researchers (one claiming to be an ex-Apple employee) let folks in on the
iPhone's dirty lil' not-so-secret.  iOS 4 asks your phone to record it's location, timestamp
and record the info on a continual basis.  This means anyone with either access to an
unencrypted desktop backup of your iPhone/3G iPad or access to your jailbroken device
can easily route your travels.  Private investigators, suspicious spouses and above all
the government (who most likely requested the log) can now use the open source iPhone
Tracker application to get a quick visual readout of your visits.

He is the only Avenger we have not seen on screen yet.

Man taped ironing on closed roadway


LONDON, April 19 (UPI) --

A man in a bathrobe was videotaped Monday morning
ironing his clothing on Britain's closed M1 highway between London and Leeds.

The man ironed a white shirt on the roadway as transport officials
announced the southbound lanes between Junctions 1 and 4 in north London
may remain closed until the end of the week, The Sun reported.

The 7-mile section of the road has been closed since Friday due to damage
from a fire in a scrapyard beneath an elevated section of the highway.
Officials said they are working to install steel supports under a bridge
in an effort to reopen at least one lane as soon as possible.

Ariz. sheriff seeks votes on 'Mugshot of the Day'

 

PHOENIX —
The Arizona sheriff known for dressing inmates in pink underwear
and feeding them green baloney
is inviting people to choose the most popular jail booking photos posted on his website.


Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio (ar-PY'-oh) allows online users to browse through the photos
and then vote on their favorites that will be highlighted on a "Mugshot of the Day" section.

The top picks so far aren't unexpected:
They're the most disheveled, unusual looking people among those booked into the downtown Phoenix jail.
Arpaio says he hopes the increased Web traffic will highlight the work of his employees.
He also says more crimes may be uncovered if the public can view the photos.
The website is www.mcso.org




A new twist on 'going postal'



By Wayne Havrelly
KGW-TV

Don Derfler's own wife didn't believe him when he told her the mail carrier was defecating in public.

Then he showed her the pictures.

Derfler saw it all from his living room window
while he was babysitting his son Wednesday afternoon.


"He started pulling his pants down and started defecating,
and at that point I grabbed my camera and started to take pictures," said Derfler.
Officials with the U.S. Postal Service say they are disheartened and disappointed.
"We're taking this very seriously, and I really want to apologize to our customers and to the public.

I've worked for the Postal Service for many years and have never heard of an incident like this,
and I hope I never do again," said Ron Anderson with the U.S. Postal Service.

Postal inspectors may have already cleaned up the evidence,
according to another neighbor who said he confronted several men in suits
walking around the scene of the act Thursday morning.
"I told them it's not normal to be wandering around someone's house,
especially when they are away at work. He told me, 'It's OK, we're postal inspectors,
'" the neighbor, who identified himself only as Dennis, told KGW.
"This is how they respect our property?," said Derfler. "It's just not right, and it's also a biohazard."
It's also a misdemeanor crime in the city of Portland.
"Nature calls at inopportune times," said Dennis.

"But jeez, go back to your rig and find a gas station for crying out loud."
Officials with the Postal Service told KGW
they have suspended the mail carrier in question without pay, pending an investigation.

MANCHESTER, N.H., April 20 (UPI) --

Firefighters in New Hampshire said they were called to a parking lot

when a woman attempting to retrieve keys from a friend's car got wedged in the sunroof.

 

Manchester firefighters said when they arrived at the Walgreen's parking lot

at Varney and South Main streets about 6:45 p.m.

Monday they found the woman stuck up to her waist in the Saab's sunroof,

WMUR-TV, Manchester, reported Tuesday.

 

The woman told firefighters she had been trying to retrieve her friend's keys from the vehicle.

Firefighters said they tried opening the doors but instead armed the security system,

locking the woman in place. They said they were eventually able to squeeze the sunroof open and free her

using a portable airbag.

 

The woman, who complained of minor breathing difficulties,

was checked and released at the scene, the fire department said.
