Germancompany txtr unveiled the txtr BeagleeReader. The stripped down eReader is supposed to sell for 10 Euro ($13), but that is just an estimate by txtr. I believe it when it is available at that price with no strings attached. Txtr is planning to sell the Beagle with mobile phone carriers. The reason is that the only way to get books onto the Beagle is via your smartphone. This would allow carriers to get a cut of the eBook business.
The txtr Beagle has only Bluetooth connectivity. Books can be bought via an app and then loaded onto the beagle.
Other features of the txtr Beagle include 5-inch screen (800x600px), AAA batteries, ePub, PDF and 4GB storage. The txtr Beagle is weighs only 128g (with batteries).

Kim Kardashian Leaked Photos Backlash
We have a new celebrity nude photo scandal this weekend. A hacker has published nude photos of Kim Kardashian and others on 4Chan. The internet seems though to have no sympathies for Kim Kardashian's violation of privacy.
The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
