Busy day? Here are my top 5 links from this morning.
1. Why e-books cost so much. Why the heck are paperbacks cheaper than the digital version?! Nathan Bransford of CNET finally explains, quite clearly, why e-books cost so darned much.
2. Kid’s cardboard arcade gets flashmobbed. After watching this video, my heart is full. Reminds me of what I used to do as a kid. Caine, an 8-year-old from East LA builds a cardboard arcade during his summer break, and when an indy filmmaker takes notice, he organizes a flashmob via reddit. Watch it here:
FYI: the video got 2 million views in 2 days. Well-deserved.
3. This is what Facebook gives the cops when they subpeona your information. What happens when a Boston police station requests Facebook info about a killer? Here are the documents in all of their glory.
4. A plethora of grilled cheese recipes. Happy grilled cheese day! At first I wanted to give you a roundup of a few grilled cheese recipes. But you know what’s better than a few grilled cheese recipes? A quadrillion grilled cheese recipes! Here are all the grilled cheese sandwiches you’ll ever need. Ever.
Bonus: Take a peek into the Foxconn factory, where iPads are built and workers get paid a whopping $14 a day.
