HarperCollins inexplicably turns to Bookshout to offer ebook downloads

Screen Shot 2016-05-05 at 8.32.28 AM  If there’s one thing readers love it’s extra reading apps on their iOS and Android devices. A few years ago there were about a dozen – apps for long-form writing, apps for books, apps that let publishers monetize (not really) by offering their own downloads. Now there’s Kindle. And, we learn today in a press release from HarperCollins, Bookshout. HarperCollins…… See More

LONDON — There's a lesson here. If you ever get the urge to pour two cans of beer into your face and then attempt a backflip, make sure there's nobody around to film the outcome.

The guy in the video below was either feeling very confident or didn't realise there were multiple camera phones tracking his every movement.

You've got to hand it to him: he really committed to that backflip.

Ouch.

'Father of Bitcoin' now won't give proof, says he's sorry

Craig Wright is probably not Satoshi Nakamoto, the creator of Bitcoin. 

The Australian entrepreneur recently summoned several media outlets, including the BBC and the Economist, as well as two key people from the Bitcoin community, to prove he is the elusive Nakamoto. After his proof got dissected by experts and turned out to be inconclusive at the very least, Wright publicly promised he'll follow up with better proof

But in a new blog post, replacing his entire blog, Wright wrote he won't provide cryptographic proof he is Nakamoto after all.

Vintage recipe card is hilarious proof of a grandmother's love

If your grandmother ever cut the crusts off your peanut butter and jelly sandwich, you'll appreciate this grandma's attention to detail.

Imgur user JENBubble, whose real name is Julie, posted a photo Wednesday of a recipe for "Pineapple Snack Cake" she found in her beloved grandmother's old recipe box. 

Not only does the snack sound pretty delicious (all fruit cake prejudice aside), Gram also made special alterations to fit her granddaughter's tastes.

"I don't put in nuts," read the instructions, "as Julie doesn't like them." Read more...

A woman has been found alive and rescuers are trying to free her six days after a building collapsed, a Kenyan government official said Thursday.

Rescuers are creating room to release the woman who is speaking to medics waiting to treat her, said Pius Masai, the head of the National Disaster Management Unit.

"The medical team has administered IV, glucose has been administered. She is talking and in good spirits ... we are taking our time to ensure she is removed safely," Masai said.

The woman has been given oxygen and she is trapped in small corner of her room, said Abbas Gullet, head of the Kenya Red Cross. Read more...
