We made it to Friday, kittens! Well, kitten. A significant portion of our readership is probably in transit, en route to New York City, either to attend the Suits and Spooks conference or to protest outside of it. Still, who here has not surfed the web via satphone before, right? Right.

Here’s all the news that will be shoptalk at the event as well as on the sidewalk outside it. And HEY MEDIA, you could sound almost caught up if you can read these before doing your interviews tomorrow. Just a suggestion.
