ROTOOFL*:  Kasper Hauser, a San Francisco-based comedy troupe, has yet to hack into President Obama's vaunted BlackBerry, but that hasn't stopped them from musing about its contents.  The satirical Obama's BlackBerry publishes next month, and is chock-full of "phony texts and emails that poke fun at the nation’s first BlackBerry-toting president and the people who need (or at least want) to message him."

My personal favorite:

Secrecy sells:  Japanese novelist Haruki Murakami knows how to work a book release.  1Q84, his first book in five years, debuted today after months of speculation over its plot.  After enduring early leaks with his last book, Kafka on the Shore, Murakami refused to provide any pre-pub details this time around.

"The secrecy surrounding the work has made customers desperate to get hold of this book," Toshiaki Uchida, assistant manager of a bookshop in central Tokyo, told the Associated Press.

Judging by the agency's brief review – one of the first to appear – 1Q84 is classic Murakami, It is described as a "complex and surreal narrative" that "shifts back and forth between tales of two characters, a man and a woman, who are searching for each other."
