Banned “Tax the Rich” TED Talk slides and text here

For those of you wondering if there's ever a TED Talk that presents an idea too controversial for the group to publish it, there definitely is, and venture capitalist Nick Hanauer was the one to make it. What we've got here is the full text of the TED Talks presentation Hanauer made at the March TED University conference as well as the full set of slides he presented at the conference. We do not have the video for this TED Talk because TED officials have decided not to publish it, not streaming, not for download, and certainly not for consumption on Netflix or your iPad app.

SwiftKey 3 Beta and where you can get it

This week the folks at the digital keyboard app group SwiftKey are releasing their third big iteration, SwiftKey 3, to the Android masses absolutely free. Of course you'll have to be part of their VIP community, and this release is only a Beta, and they'll want you to give them feedback so they can make a better product for the future. But all that out of the way, SwiftKey's method of pre-releasing a beta product for testing has been in place with them now for many moons - and it appears to be working!

Megaupload co-founder bailed, Dotcom trial date soon

This week the co-founder of Megaupload, Mathias Ortmann has been freed on bail after his arrest along with the rest of the Megaupload inner circle nearly a month ago. Ortmann's trial date was supposed to have taken place on the 26th of January but his own estimates on his finances did not match up with cash earned from basic Megaupload funds between 2005 and 2011 - while he noted he's made $17.5 million from the service over the past 6 years, he'd had $3.5 million more than that completely unaccounted for. This morning it appears that they've been able to explain the discrepancy because Ortmann has been released on bail.

Get all The Pirate Bay in a 90MB download

If you are the sort who likes to download your movies, music, and other stuff from places like The Pirate Bay, you can grab your very own copy of the pirate website right now. Back in January, I mentioned that The Pirate Bay was making some changes from directly hosting torrent files to magnetic links. The change was to make the site require less bandwidth and to allow fans to be able to download and host their own version locally as a way to avoid authorities seeking to take the site off-line.

MegaUpload’s takedown by the numbers

MegaUpload’s takedown by the numbers

Believe it or not, it was and is possible to track the traffic that MegaUpload and the rest of the piracy-laden file-sharing groups out there have compared to the rest of the web. A series of studies have been conducted by a few sources we're checking out today and the results are staggering, depending on how you look at it, with the first giant being the one hour following the January 19th raid of MegaUpload. In that one hour, the entirety of the Internet lost between 2 and 3 precent of its total volume in traffic.

Gotham City Impostors launched, Batman FPS chaos ensues

One of the wackiest looking and feeling games to have been released in what seems like forever has been officially brought out of Beta yesterday and today, rolling out to the PC, Xbox 360, and Playstation 3 in turn. This game is a download-only game but looks to be a gigantic bash of a good time hit as the waves created by the smash hit game Gotham City is scooped up here in a comedic rendition of what would happen if Batman was no more. It's a first person shooter this time around, Batfriends, and noone is safe!

One of the most famous musicians of all time, Neil Young, spoke this week with Peter Kafka and Walt Mossberg of AllThingsD about the future of digital music, and how he'd be continuing Steve Jobs legacy in pioneering for it. A device which allows you to download music with the highest possible resolution is what Young aims to create.
