What a field day for the heat
A thousand people in the street
Singing songs and carrying signs
Mostly saying, "hooray for our side"

Linkee-poo dance in the dark of night, sing to the morning light

How do you get published in Asimov's? Practice, man, practice.

Wither the Nook. While the device is still there, and they'll still make content for it, for any content you've purchased through the Nook Store you need to make sure you've moved that to other providers. Because after March 15th, the Nook Store will close and all that information you've stored (or kept stored) on their servers will no longer be available. New items will still be available through the Google Play Store (if I'm reading this correctly). (Grokked from Chuck Wendig)

The Macalope on the iPhone unlocking case. Yep, just a few years ago government was asking Apple to make their iPhone more secure. They just didn't mean to make it more secure against them. (Grokked from John)

Twinkle, twinkle, little Titan… or maybe those are methane waves. Surf's up! (Grokked form Hannah Bowman)

Let us sit upon the ground. And tell sad stories of the death of kin… wait, internet archive release classic Apple II games? OMG, I'll be in my bunk. "The site then uses its JavaScript-based emulator to run these games and programs directly in the browser." A Javascript emulator. Living in the future folks. (Grokked from John)

"The United States and Iran held confidential talks about the future of Iraq prior to the U.S.-led war in Iraq, according to a new book by a top Bush administration diplomat." In sure that under the Bush administration, they weren't traitors for dealing with Iran, like conservatives called President Obama for getting Iran to abandon their nuclear weapons program. Anybody else remember the letter from Iran's Supreme Leader to the Bush administration saying they would be willing to give up their nuclear program for sanctions relief and normalized diplomatic relations? You know, the one the Bush administration say they never saw. (Grokked from Jim Wright)

Amon Bundy with his press releases from a Birmingham jail. Not so much.

Ted Cruz's senate endorsements. "After reporting that Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) was set to unveil his first endorsements from fellow senators, the National Review corrected the record to say Cruz does not have any Senate endorsements to announce." So, basically, it was bullshit.
