Galileo's new product, FocalpointNet (FocalpointNet, FocalpointNet -- say it 10 times fast), will give Galileo and Apollo agents full CRS capabilities through an Internet connection, letting them toggle between the CRS and the Web; set up a workstation with no additional wiring other than a standard modem connection, and potentially lower communications costs. When queried about this innovation, Dinah Saur of Stone Age Travel said "Bah! If I want Windows, I'll go to Home Depot."

According to the Dallas Morning News, airline pilots are being warned that Viagra might impair their ability to see instrument displays and airport runway lamps. "Passengers, I'll be... I mean, WE'LL be rising to an altitude of 32,000 feet today. Or is that 22,000 feet? Hey, Bill, what's that readout say?"

The National Transportation Safety Board encouraged cruise lines to check their vessels' ventilation systems for combustible materials like lint. I would add that lines should require crew members to check their belly buttons and in between their toes for lint, as well. Hey, this is fire safety we're talking about. One can't be too careful.
