Friday's here, and with it, Fast's top five picks of what's been going on overnight, whilst you were snuffling into your pillows and dreaming of unicorns .
1. Operation Top Kill. It was on, then off, and now it's on  again. Obama is off to Louisiana  today, so we're praying for a miracle. And we're going to need one . Failing that, a Spill Czar. The Guardian is p(l)umping for Colin Powell .
2. Forget racial profiling--thank God. Latest idea  from the geeks is that video game technology and biometric  sensors could be used to pick out anyone in explosive underwear--or anyone who hasn't returned  their copy of The Velveteen Rabbit to the library on time. A good start might be keeping an eye on Autotune . Watch out, Britney.
4. It's official: Google  has finally got its hands on AdMob, days after the FCC gave the deal the thumbs-up. It's also launched  its own trading floor to buy back some of its shares, and Brent Callinicos, the man with the plan, says, "This isn't fast money, it's patient money."
