  • Documents released show the secret service was interested in a document Swartz penned calling for open information. The first batch of secret service documents about Aaron Swartz has been released amid a legal battle to publicly share the 14,500 pages the government has amassed in its investigation of the internet activist. A report of his suicide, evidence documents and a memorandum of an interview with an unidentified acquaintance are included in the 104-page cache published by Wired’s Kevin Poulsen on Monday. Swartz was federally indicted on 13 charges including computer fraud, theft of information and wire fraud for downloading 4m articles from the JSTOR database through the Massachusetts Institute of Technology computer network. He was facing up to $1m in fines and 35 years in jail for these charges when he killed himself in January. The documents show that the secret service was interested in a document penned by Swartz and others calling for open information – the Guerilla Open Access Manifesto. Some, including a congressional aide, believe this document was used to establish “malicious intent” in the government’s case against him. A considerable portion of the documents are evidence logs detailing the equipment seized by the government or handed over by Swartz, including computers, storage equipment and earnings statements from Google and Harvard University.

  • Art Bell, W6OBB and legendary late-night talk radio host is returning to the airwaves. Sirius XM will be the exclusive home to legendary nighttime talker Art Bell, marking his full-time return to radio with a new, expanded live, nightly call-in show on which he will explore the paranormal, unexplained and more with expert guests and listeners nationwide. Sirius is building a studio at Bell’s rural Nevada home where he will work. Bell’s residents is home to his antenna farm where he does a lot of work on the 75 Meter Band. W6OBB station equipment includes both an Icom IC-7800 and a Yaesu FTDX-9000. Of course, all that equipment would be relatively useless without good antennas and Art has an equally impressive antenna farm with thirteen towers spread over five acres of land that give him one of the strongest signals on the amateur bands. Art’s remote Pahrump receiver that can be heard from the S-Meter site is located several miles away at his KNYE-FM broadcast station. “Art Bell’s Dark Matter” will debut 9/16 on Indie, SiriusXM channel 104, airing nightly from 10:00 pm-1:00 am ET. Bell will host the show from his home studio in Pahrump, NV—near Area 51—opening the phones lines and inviting listeners and expert guests to join his uncensored, unscripted nightly conversation about a wide variety of topics including: the paranormal, near-death experiences, quantum physics, extraterrestrial life and the unusual. For some of us that are a fan of Coast to Coast AM Noory’s program is on later at night, so the two will not compete directly live.

  • U.S. company Apple and its Asian suppliers are testing enhanced screens for smartphones and tablets iPhone iPad, according to the publication The Wall Street Journal.

Experimenting with display sizes of their tablets and smartphones, Apple is searching for recourses to answer the different needs of customers. The competition in the mobile market encourages the company to expand the proposal.
