WSJ reports Apple to release a phone tomorrow!
Nerds have been salivating over an Apple-designed cellphone for months and years. Including me. Now, the Wall Street Journal is reporting that they're gonna do it. I am so excited. I've been holding off on buying a new cellphone in anticipation of Apple releasing one. I'm glad I waited.

Tomorrow, I won't be following any news because I want to watch the Steve Jobs keynote, which is far more entertaining than any movie, without knowing too many spoilers ahead of time. So don't post anything juicy about Apple in the hippo tomorrow or I'll kill you, because Bloggie is one place I'll be reading. Here's a link to a place to watch for the stream to show up without risking seeing any spoilers, if you like watching the Stevenote too. It runs from 9 AM to 11 AM zst, so the stream'll probably be up by about 1 or 2 PM.
"People familiar with the situation" have apparently informed the WSJ that Apple is launching the Applephone (or whatever it's called) as early as tomorrow. (See, even the kings of MSM aren't omitted from the Apple rumor mill.) They don't really give any more than that, but it's the WSJ, and conventional wisdom kind of states that when the business journal of record goes on the record, you should perk your ears up and listen (at least). Maybe we're interested just because we want to be done printing rumors and rumors about rumors from blogs and papers alike.
It's worth noting that the WSJ also broke the news that Apple was switching to Intel chips. I think Apple must leak stuff to the WSJ that it wants to pre-publicize on the eve of big events.

With Republicans like Arnie, who needs Democrats?
Aztlan Governer Schwarzenegger has inexplicably decided to extend the same free, comprehensive health care enjoyed by the native sons of La Raza to the occupying white European invaders of the land. California’s Governor Seeks Universal Care.
Mr. Schwarzenegger estimated would cost $12 billion, calls for many employers that do not offer health insurance to contribute to a fund that would help pay for coverage of the working uninsured. It would also require doctors to pay 2 percent and hospitals 4 percent of their revenues to help cover higher reimbursements for those who treat patients enrolled in Medi-Cal, the state’s Medicaid program.

“Everyone in California must have health insurance,” Mr. Schwarzenegger said, in a tone that seemed as much a threat as a promise.

The plan includes elements that only an hour after his announcement provoked opposition from many powerful interests, including doctors and the governor’s Republican colleagues in the Legislature.

But the speaker of the State Assembly, Fabian Núñez, a Democrat, said in a statement, “I’m glad the governor is on board with coverage for all kids.”

The better he knows Ahmadinejad, the more he loves him
"We didn't kiss once, we kissed 20-30 times" says Moshe Aryeh Friedman, self-proclaimed "chief rabbi of Vienna's Jewish community", about his meeting with Ahmadinejad during the Iranian Holocaust Denial conference. If I were you Mr. Friedman, I wouldn't exactly brag about that. But then again, I wouldn't be praying for my people's destruction either. Neturei Karta delegate to Iranian Holocaust conference: I pray for Israel's destruction 'in peaceful ways'. I really detest this guy; I hate his cluelessness, hypocricy and self-righteousness and I hate that he's soiling the memory of the dead.
Friedman does not try to hide his admiration for Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who in the past termed the Holocaust a "myth" and has called for the destruction of Israel. "I had more than one meeting with his excellency, President Ahmadinejad," Friedman said. "The president first recognized me at the conference in Tehran and he was especially friendly. There may be only one picture in which we are photographed kissing, but in fact we kissed 20 or 30 times." Friedman also claims that on his earlier trip to Iran, he visited the residential compound of the Iranian president and reached "the bedroom of Khomeini." Ahmadinejad, he said, chose to remain in a modest three-room apartment with his wife, "who is from a good family." Friedman said "there aren't too many people who know him better than I do."

According to Friedman, the second reason for his trip was to present an international peace plan, by which Israel would cease to exist, Jews of Polish and Eastern European origin (and their whole families) would return to their place of birth, and Jewish of Iraqi origin would return to Iraq "the moment a functioning democracy is established there." Friedman said the Iranian president expressed support for his plan and promised "to give religious freedom to the Jewish minority that remains in Palestine." Friedman added that he "wanted to bring the situation back to what it was, before the establishment of Israel."

Surprise, surprise:
CARACAS, Venezuela - Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez announced plans Monday to nationalize the country's electrical and telecommunications companies, calling them "strategic sectors" that should be in the hands of the nation.

The New York Stock Exchange immediately halted trading in CANTV, Venezuela's largest publicly traded company, which was singled out in Chavez' speech. The decision was also likely to affect Electricidad de Caracas, owned by AES Corp.

It was the boldest move by the Venezuelan leader since he was re-elected by a wide margin last month promising to a more radical turn toward socialism in Venezuela.

"All of those sectors that in an area so important and strategic for all of us as is electricity — all of that which was privatized, let it be nationalized, Chavez said in a televised speech after swearing in a new Cabinet.

"C.A. Nacional Telefonos de Venezuela (CANTV), let it be nationalized," Chavez said. "The nation should recover its property of strategic sectors."

Chavez threatened last August to nationalize CANTV, a Caracas-based former state firm that was privatized in 1991, unless it adjusted its pension payments to current minimum wage levels, which have been repeatedly increased by his government.
How will they be able to watch CANTV when there's no electricity thanks to the incompetent cronies Chavez will install at his new power station? Not that it'll be worth watching any more.

I have to say, I blame Venezuelans for their own predicament, and I have zero sympathy any more. They keep re-electing him. Let them stew in it.

How does one make fun of Hitler?
A new German comedy about Hitler has been panned by critics for a) not being funny and b) portraying Hitler as a pathetic figure that evokes sympathy from the viewer: Germany Not Amused By Hitler Comedy. I don't know if I could find anything funny about Hitler because some people are such monsters that they defy comedy. Charlie Chaplin said he would not have made "The Great Dictator" had he known about the Holocaust.
A German-made farce about Hitler would have been unthinkable just a few years ago. But the gradual dying out of the Nazi era generation has given the country a more detached view of the past.

Younger generations in particular are ready ro laugh about Hitler. A comic series about him by cartoonist Walter Moers has been popular ever since it was launched in 1997 and a video clip from the series in which Hitler raps, sits on the toilet and takes a bath with rubber ducks that sing "Adolf you Nazi pig, why don't you capitulate" has proved a hit among Internet downloads in Germany.

So more than 60 years on from the war, Germany does seem to be ready for a tongue-in-cheek approach to Hitler. The trick now is to come up with a funny one.
