Nearly two years ago, the Library of Congress acquired some 800 boxes of books, letters, notes, videos, and other items that belonged to late American astronomer and author Carl Sagan. Now much that massive collection — which was donated by Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane — can be found online as part of a new online archive. Librarians have split it up into three sections encompassing models of the cosmos, life on other worlds, and Sagan’s life and works. The originals of all those items were put up for public display last November, though required visiting the library in person.
You wouldn’t think it would take more than two weeks to extract some source code from a pile of 3.5-inch floppies and post it online, but getting files from 1989 to play nice with a MacBook Air is no simple feat. That’s why we’re so appreciative of Jordan Mechner, who put the time and effort into freeing his creation, Prince of Persia, from its magnetic prison. If you want to try and build the platforming classic for your own system, hit up the source link. Or, just wait for someone else to do it for you — we’re sure it wont take long for some friendly binary formats to hit the web.

Read me. Chances are your question is answered here. This is a brief video that gives you a simple, yet weak strategy to gain some quick cash in Plants vs Zombies. There are other strategies that require further planing, timing and resources. Mine is a simpler strategy, but doesn’t give you as much money. It’s easy to follow, fun (a screen almost full of marigolds!), and doesn’t require extra slots. So please, don’t comment on the fact that it’s a weak strategy. If you came here to search for a stronger, yet harder tutorial, check out the video responses. This was done back when the game was new. I didn’t even knew my video was going to be this big, so I never bothered to develop a more powerful strategy. Please behave and think before you comment. Put yourself in my shoes. Seriously. FAQ: Q: Why did you use the Coffee Bean? A: The Gold Magnet doesn’t need the Coffee Bean (I use the Coffee Bean to wake up the Doom-Shroom, which is optional). Q: How do you have 5000 sun? A: This is a special mode called Last Stand mode, and it’s unlocked after you played 14 mini-games. The mini-games are unlocked when you complete Adventure mode. Q: Why don’t I just use Cheat Engine? A: Because that’s cheating. If you want to use Cheat Engine, do it. Later on in life you’ll realize you’re a sad person without many accomplishments in life. You can then trace it back to when you used Cheat Engine to win games without even having fun. Also, because you read the description like a nice person …

Those of you toting around an HTC Flyer probably just got an update that loaded OnLive Viewer on your 7-inch tablet. Don’t get too excited though, the name of the app says it all — this is a viewer not a player. So, if you’ve got a voyeuristic streak, you can watch others shoot their way through F.E.A.R. 3, but you won’t slowing down time yourself. If that sounds like a blast but you don’t have a Flyer, fear not, the folks at the XDA forums were kind enough to rip the APK and post it for all the world to enjoy. We successfully tested it on a Droid X, and reports are that it’s up and running on the EVO 4G, Desire HD, and even a hacked Nook Color. Once installed you’ll just need a WiFi connection (the app kicks you back to the homescreen on 3G) and low expectations — the video quality was less than impressive. Hit up the source link to download it for yourself, and check out the video our tipster sent us after the break.

As Australia drops prices, so too must US prices fall. Apple’s stateside store has finally posted the special’s for tomorrow’s Black Friday rush, and while there’s nothing monumental, you’re still getting $ 101 off various Mac computers and $ 41 off of an iPad — plus lots of accessories and absolutely no iPhone deals. Take a gander if you so desire, and get ready for all the Black Friday fun starting tomorrow.

No surprise that Apple’s new Mac App Store has a similar set of rules and regulations as the iPhone App Store, and we just got the full list. There’s nothing here that’s too different from the iPhone review guidelines, but it all seems terribly odd when applied to a regular computer, and some of the more restrictive policies have already drawn ire from developers like Mozilla’s Director of Firefox Mike Beltzner, who says the restriction against beta code won’t work well with the Mozilla “open beta” development process. That’s definitely a valid criticism, especially if the Mac App Store becomes the dominant way for Mac users to get apps, but there’s a crucial difference here: unlike the iPhone, Macs can run software from any source, not just the App Store. That means apps that don’t meet Apple’s Store guidelines can still be freely used by any Mac user without going through jailbreak hoops, and we think that’s an ideal compromise: it allows Apple to control much of the Mac experience, since developers will have a huge incentive to comply with the review guidelines and get into the store, but still allows other types of apps and utilities to flourish — including, say Firefox betas. (We might have written an editorial arguing for exactly this approach on the iPhone in the past, come to think about it.)
So with that said, let’s examine Apple’s Mac App Store Review Guidelines, which were just posted yesterday — you can grab the PDF here and read the whole thing, but we’re just going to break out the parts that seem more interesting or different than what we’ve seen in the past. Our biggest takeaway? Interpreted on their face, some of these rules would mean major Mac apps like Adobe Creative Suite 5 and Microsoft Office won’t be in the Mac App Store, and that’s obviously a problem. Read on to see what we mean.

WePad appears three more times, 36 minutes of video posted
After posting about the WePad recently we realized just how much interested there is in this German iPad competitor. Itâ€™s a serious underdog compared to the Cupertino super slate, but between the Linux-based OS, USB slots, and cool grid UI it might be able to carve out a niche for itself. Engadget dug up three videos [...]
