News quotes of the day

A few random tidbits from the Associated Press:
Severe cases of [Seasonal Affective Disorder] can be debilitating, even prompting thoughts of suicide. According to experts, however, suicide rates actually peak with increasingly spring light.
"You don't have enough energy to make a plan before then," said [psychology professor Suzanne Womack Strisik]. "It's too much trouble. Once the light starts coming back, there's more energy, but reasoning is still off. There's just enough light to make false conclusions."
... The article was about people in northern Alaska. (And I thought it got bad in Seattle.)

Steve Jobs, Apple's rainmaker, was even parodied in a ``Saturday Night Live'' sketch, evidence of how the Cupertino-based outfit is ingrained in pop culture like no other tech company.
In the skit, an actor impersonating the chief executive (sporting black turtleneck and jeans, of course) introduces three iPods within minutes of each other. Each device makes its predecessor obsolete — from the iPod Micro to the iPod Pequeno, and finally the iPod Invisa, which though invisible can still hold 8 million songs and every picture ever taken.
... I've attached one of those to this post as a Christmas present to everyone on my friends list. ];=8)
