In the papers today...

Apple unveiled the new iPhone yesterday. In front of 5,000 developers and journalists, CEO Steve Jobs declared that the most desired phone on the planet now has 3G capabilities, optional white casing, and is US$400 cheaper. It will be made available worldwide on 11th July. In other industry news, Nokia announced it was changing its core business to vacuum cleaners.

Filmmakers Spike Lee and Clint Eastwood have engaged in a war of words. Lee started the bitching by saying that Eastwood's Flag of the Fathers and Letters from Iwo Jima ignored the role that black soldiers played in those military campaigns. Eastwood replied by asking Lee to "shut his face". Lee countered by reminding Eastwood that they were not "on a plantation". Finally, Marlon Brando stepped in to prove his penis was the biggest. Since then, both Lee and Eastwood have gone missing.

Porsche celerated its 60th birthday this weekend by unveiling four new versions of its famed 911 Carrera. The new models, which include two coupes and two convertibles, will have a 385hp direct fuel-injection engine, a top speed of 188mph and an optional double-clutch gearbox that shifts between the seven gears up to 60 percent faster than normal. I'm sure all that means something to someone. I'm not that someone.
