Hello again. So what happened since I last posted?

Ha'aretz finally started offering RSS feeds for all its sections, including News and Opinion.
Apple released a thing of beauty.
Bill Gates (almost) acknowledged that Google and Apple could kick his company's ass.
George W. Bush nominated a first-trimester fetus to the Supreme Court, while Halliburton got another contract.
Paul Krugman wondered how many FEMA's there are, while John Tierney wanted to ask Judge Roberts the right questions.
We got to know just how badly Bill Clinton still wants that goddamn Nobel Peace Prize.
Rolling Stone published Hunter S. Thompson's suicide note.
Usher wasn't amused with Kanye West's sense of humour.
Prince emerged from hibernation and released a song about Hurricane Katrina, which is now also available at the iTunes Music Store.
The Economist published the latest Technology Quarterly (subscription required), which once again featured quite a few fascinating articles. Random example: the one about web mash-ups (e.g. housingmaps.com). Or the one about the obsolescence of folders.
And Germany elected a new chancellor:

That's about it.
