Even before Snowden leaked all the NSA data, most of us had a pretty decent idea that the U.S. government has always been keeping a watchful eye over everyone. The shock from the leaks likely came from the scope and depth of all the information-gathering and spying. If you think the government couldn’t possibly dig even deeper, guess again.

April 26, 2013 | 3:15 pm

Siva Cycle AtomThis Kickstarter project has funded pretty quickly over the past couple of days, and I certainly expect it to overfund significantly before the campaign is over. The concept behind the Siva Cycle Atom is using a bicycle as a generator to power a battery pack, which can be used to charge electronic devices via USB. The Siva Cycle Atom is designed with top of the line magnetic rotors and powerful lithium batteries. As you ride, it harnesses the kinetic energy to directly charge a device or store the energy in a battery. The Atom is for the modern commuter cyclist, the urban biker, the...

February 15, 2013 | 2:47 pm

eBook Plus logoeBook sales have been skyrocketing since 2011, and the publishing market, of course, has been revolutionized as a result. But as the volume of available e-books grows, so does the consumer piracy of e-books. eBook Plus has been launched with the intention of improving the system.

TeleRead Goes to Vegas
January 12, 2013 | 11:48 pm

Those of you who read TeleRead regularly probably noticed that our coverage was a little bit thin last week ... but not to worry! I've got an alibi: I was in Las Vegas since last Sunday, covering the 2013 International CES for NAPCO—my employer, and TeleRead's parent company. This was my first-ever trip to CES, and while it was a huge milestone in my still-burgeoning consumer technology career, here's the God's honest truth: The experience totally and completely smacked the life out of me, both physically and psychologically. I walked for miles and miles, literally, every day. In fact, I walked so much—while at the same time straining...
