Dave Knott writes "A tiny, previously unknown moon circling Neptune has been spotted by astronomers using the Hubble telescope. The moon, which is currently known as S/2004 N1, was found on July 1 by Mark Showalter of the SETI Institute in Mountain View, Calif., NASA announced Monday. It is less than 20 kilometres wide and its orbit is 105,000 kilometres from Neptune, between those of Larissa and Proteus, two of Neptune's other 14 known moons. It circles Neptune once every 23 hours."

I believe, on the mac side at least, the issue was some sort of patent HP has on wireless printing. I was looking forward to the original airprint, which Apple beta'd with software to put on your mac to let iPads use printers on it. This software was later removed, and the part of apple's site about airprint had a list of HP printers to buy instead. From the beta's withdrawal came the release of "airprint activator" a nice third party tool that did what apple's software was supposed to before it got lawyered to death.
