While I'm here: Steve Jobs meets US Foreign Policy in this surprisingly amusing skit about Iraq. I say "surprisingly" because it's about as subtle as a brick, but that's part of the charm.
Lastly, I don't know why this is cool but it is: an image of Jupiter taken from the Cassini probe in orbit around Saturn (1.1 billion miles away). Now that's a zoom lens.
EDIT: Some actual snow on the ground this morning! Plenty of signs of it melting rapidly as it lands, but for the moment it's actually quite white in places.
