Hot twoppic of the moment is the magic trackpad.  @octobersixth tweets I have no idea what a Magic Trackpad is or why it's trending but it sounds like it came from the wonderful mind of J.K. Rowling. In fact the magic trackpad comes from the wonderful mind of Steve Jobs, and is Apple's newest input device for Apple computers.  The external, multi-touch surface supports all the swiping and pinching gestures made popular by the iPhone...twitter was full of tweets considering whether upgrading from their mouse was really worth $69...even if it's magic.

Hot twoppic of the day... former Oakland Raiders football player Jack Tatum, who has died at the age of 61 of a heart attack. Nicknamed "The Assassin," Jack was best known for his hit that paralyzed Darryl Stingley in an NFL preseason game in 1978.  Although he was a polarizing figure because he never apologized to Stingley for the hit,  he was recognized as one of the best players ever.

Hot twoppic of the week is a new oil spill near the Gulf of Mexico,  between Bayou Saint Dennis and Grande isle, Louisiana.  Apparently, a barge collided with a well head and caused oil, gas and mud to spew 100 feet in the air. Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal.  Coast Guard Rear-Admiral Mary Landry was quick to quell concerns.
