Legal Update on iPhone, Stem Cells and a Vote!

Turns out a company called Cisco has owned the name iPhone for years and that for the last two years Apple has tried to work out deal with them to no avail. Since they went forth with the announcement anyways they have gotten into a little legal trouble.

Also, today the stem cell bill passed again in the House, 253-174. Now we will have to see if it makes it through Bush's veto. This is the second major thing passes by the House in their "first 100 hours." The other was to raise the minimum wage to $7.25. They promised they would pass a bunch. So far, in the "first 100 hours" this congress looks more promising than the last one. Can anyone remember anything passed in the last congress over months?

By the way, I know a few things did pass but the key word is few and hence the last congress was named the "do nothing congress." At least this congress is quickly getting things done, even if you don't agree with it all. You may not agree, but at least so far they are efficient. It would be nice if this was true about all areas of the government.

Now the vote: who thinks Nancy Pelosi(Left), the new speaker of the house resembels BYU's own Susan Easton Black(Right)? These pictures may not be convincing but you have to see them both talk!
