Submission + - Colbert enters the Presidential Race

zstlaw writes: "As red, white and blue balloons fell around him, Stephen Colbert announced his candidacy for president on 'The Colbert Report'. He went on to claim he will only run in South Carolina where he has roots. In a typical Colbert fashion he claimed he would run as Democrat and Republican so that he could lose twice. — gD8SB07VO0

While the candidacy appears to be tongue-in-cheek, with Colbert's sizable audience even a tongue in cheek candidacy could pull a large number of young voters whom are unsatisfied with other candidates. How do you think this may effect the already crowded field?"

Submission + - Stolen laptop = free beer (as in beer)

Jivecat writes: "CNN reports on a New Zealand brewery that had a laptop stolen containing all the company's financials. The co-owner of Croucher Brewing Co. has offered 'a dozen bottles of beer a month for... life' to whoever recovers the laptop. In a neighbourly gesture, a New Zealand winemaker offered the suggestion that the brewery make its reward terms very specific, to avoid any 'difficult legal wrangle.'"
