Judge Rules That Police Can Bar High I.Q. Scores 260

An anonymous reader writes "A Federal judge has dismissed a lawsuit by a man who was barred from the New London police force because he scored too high on an intelligence test. Judge Dorsey ruled that Mr. Jordan was not denied equal protection because the city of New London applied the same standard to everyone: anyone who scored too high was rejected." Update: 04/16 22:01 GMT by T : Mea culpa. This story slipped through; consider it a time-machine / late-April Fool's day joke, please.

I think we're going to see the widescreen iPod ... you know, the one that has the virtual click wheel overlayed on the touch sensitive LCD screen. This makes sense with the showtime theme -- in fact, to go a little further out on the limb, I'm going to predict that it will be introduced along with a device for streaming videos to TV sets. Not quite a Media Center PC, but more like Airport Express Video.
