Submission + - Bush Administration Emails Recovered (

Tibor the Hun writes: CNN reports that the millions of "missing" Bush administration emails have been recovered. Unfortunately it could be years before we get access to their juicy details. The emails were highly sought out because of the administration's alleged involvement in politicized firings of US prosecutors.

Submission + - Apple's Next Move

Tibor the Hun writes: "Hot on the heels of previous /. story of Kindle disappointment, iLounge brings us a scoop of a possible Apple tablet. Not a netbook, not a larger iPhone, but a device focused on the literary world, much like Kindle. A device that would organize and present all your magazine and newspaper subscriptions, books, even textbooks, with a web browser, in a lightweight, simple to use package. Reminiscent of the past, where many different MP3 players were on the market, but steadily overshadowed by iPod, will this be a device to do for e-print what iPod did for the music? With an established media store (iTMS), widespread client (iTunes), proven hardware, a solid software base, and a dedication to the education field, Apple could create a whole new market and profit like mad. By not offering a full feature general purpose computer they sidestep the issue of segmenting their own laptop market, yet capturing the base of avid readers who don't have a great need to edit office documents. For those /.ers who care about such things, the only question remains is if this device would have more space than a Nomad?"
