Many of the details of the chats between WikiLeaks head Julian Assange and Bradley (now Chelsea) Manning have been dissected in court and the public eye, but from a series of trial documents, Wired has unearthed a copy of long IM conversations between the two in March of 2010, just before the release of the “Collateral Murder” video. The chat logs between Manning and a “Nathaniel Frank” (believed to be an alias of Assange) reveal political pontification, emoticons, and terse strategizing about leaks that would soon put both Manning and Assange at the center of a political firestorm.

Amazon’s Android-flavored reading app is offering up a couple more of its own e-reader’s features for those with Google-fied devices. Just like folks with Kindles have already encountered, the Kindle for Android app now keeps tabs on time remaining in chapters and the book itself should pace be of chief concern. The mobile software also allows library sorting by author, title and books recently read to keep those A Song of Ice and Fire titles neatly organized. Naturally, the update also comes with the usual stability improvements and bug fixes in tow and can be snatched up at the source link. You know, in the event that your trusty device hasn’t alerted you to the new version just yet.

Following the death of Aaron Swartz, governments and higher education seem to have stepped up their efforts to make scholarly research more readily accessible. Now, the world’s largest public research university, the University of California, has voted to make the published works of its more than 8,000 faculty members free to the public, by default, at the university’s eScholarship website. Faculty at three UC campuses will start contributing papers on November 1st, with the rest to follow in November of next year.
“Doesn’t the opt-out approach mean the policy has no teeth?”
There is that one caveat, “by default,” because researchers and scholars can opt out of the program on a per-paper basis, say if they want to reserve their work…

It costs 400 dollars, and these are the games you’ll be playing on it.
(And when it’s coming out, other than “this year”.)
Remember Little Golden Books? Those things were awesome and the perfect length for an afternoon potty sesh. Now? Now I sit there in pain for like an hour asking myself why the hell I eat the things I do. Animator Joebot has created a small series of video games (Bioshock, Portal and Skyrim) imagined as Little Golden Books. I’m especially fond of the Bioshock one, but I’m especially fond of Bioshock in general. If Rapture really existed, I would live there, and I would be its king. Just me and Sander Cohen taking boner plasmids and making art all day.

Sometimes the best Kickstarter projects are the simplest ones. Lumio is a lamp masquerading as a beautiful hardcover book with a wooden finish. To turn the lamp on, you open it up. To turn it off, you close. It’s equal parts simplicity and ingenuity.
Lumio came into being when architect and designer Max Gunawan was trying to design a modular home that could fit inside a compact car. When Max realized he didn’t have enough funds to build a working prototype, he decided to use the his built up expertise somewhere else.
“When I decided to pivot and translate the concept into a folding lamp, it was a natural progression to use the form of the sketchbook as a way to package the lamp,” says Max on his Kickstarter page. “That’s how Lumio was born.”
An LED powers the Lumio, which can last up to 8 hours when fully charged. The cover comes in dark walnut, warm cherry, and blonde maple options and is also embedded with magnets that allows you to easily attach the Lumio to metal surfaces.
Gunawan has raised over $ 400,000 on his Kickstarter page, shooting well past his original $ 60K goal. You only have a few more days days to pledge and nab a Lumio for yourself, so if you want one I’d suggest you get going now.
Ok, right here’s the thing. I have a MacBook. The old one’s from 2009. My utube is glitchy, so the background songs is kind of … well glitchy! NO HATE PLZ !!!!!! Thanks for viewing! Reminder: do not put my name in the remark section. Please and thank you:) SUBSCRIBE !!
These are a pair of Batman symbol wall bookshelves crafted by Etsy Seller Fahmi Sani of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. He was selling them in his shop a week ago for around $ 285, but he got such a response that he’s pulled them from his store while he fulfills his current orders. And you know what that means! “It’s time to jump on Etsy and start sell our own really shitty version ASAP.” You know it! You get started on the Etsy shop, I’ll be in the garage chopping all my fingers off with a jigsaw.
Hit the jump for a closeup.
