Website Consumerist.com is investigating claims of an iPhone purchasing lockout which effect prospective
New York buyers. US citizens with the 11231 zip code (Brookly) have found that the iPhone could not be
purchased by shoppers on AT&T's website. Followup contact with AT&T's online sales support from the
Consumerist provided the follow-up response of "New York is not ready for the iPhone" from the support
operator. Gizmodo received a similar message upon persuing the same type of purchase. Is this a result
of network strain, sales fraud or whatever but I'd be interested to hear what AT&T has to say about this.
Another follow-up commercial with Luke Wilson just might not cut it these days.

will see any news on the elusive Apple tablet?

Donkeys escape from live nativity scene in Colo.

Search of car turns up gift-wrapped marijuana

Pa. student suspended for wearing Santa suit
WALLINGFORD, Pa. – A suburban Philadelphia teenager
was suspended for a day for wearing a Santa Claus suit to school.
Michael Hance says he told his principal that he planned to wear the suit
toin Wallingford and hand out candy canes.
The 18-year-old senior says the principal told him that wasn't a good idea
because it would be a distraction. But he wore the suit anyway,
with regular clothes underneath.
Hance got nabbed a few minutes after he walked into his first class on Tuesday.
The school district says in a statement that Hance was suspended for the day
for "defiance of authority."
Hance says the school could have just given him a detention.
Pope knocked down by woman at Christmas Eve Mass
VATICAN CITY – Pope Benedict XVI's Christmas Eve Mass
at St. Peter's Basilica got off to a tumultuous start Thursday
after an apparently deranged woman jumped the barriers
and knocked him down on his way to the altar.
In his homily, delivered unflappably after the incident,
Benedict urged the world to "wake up"
from selfishness and petty affairs,
and find time for God and spiritual matters.
At the, witness video obtained by The Associated Press
showed a woman dressed in a red hooded sweat shirt vaulting
over the wooden barriers that cordoned off the basilica's main aisle
and rushing toward the pope before being swarmed by bodyguards.
She grabbed the pope's vestments as she was taken down,
with Benedict seemingly falling on top of her.
"(The pope) quickly got up and continued the procession."
See you everyone in 2010
