As much as we all love to live in a digital world, there's just no replacing books. Sure, ebooks are good - but there's something awesome about having a physical copy and flipping through the pages. That's especially true if you're already using your computer for something else - you know, like work. Let me give an example.
Let's say you're a developer, and you're working on...something. You're having issues squashing a bug or getting a specific feature to work the way you want.
OnePlus wants more ideas for accessories for its flagship and sole phone, the One. To produce them, it's looking to you. And by you, I mean those of you with the knowledge and will to throw together a CAD file.
OnePlus is working with Ultimaker, a 3D printing company, to hold a contest in which fans get to design their own accessories—not limited to cases—for the One. The public will select twenty finalists. Afterwards, OnePlus and Ultimaker will choose the top three. They aren't promising that they will turn any of the designs into products, but there's a chance.
All twenty finalists will receive an invite to buy the 64GB black OnePlus One.
Remember Curiosity? It's alright if you don't - it wasn't a very good game, despite having an interesting social concept. Basically a bunch of people continually tapped at an enormous digital cube clearing billions of virtual tiles, and only one of them would "win" by reaching the center. The Tootsie Roll center of that Tootsie Pop turned out to be Godus, a crowdfunded game that allows players to play god and influence the lives of tiny polygonal villagers. It's currently still in "early access" on Steam and available on Android as a work in progress.
Godus and its lead-in Curiosity (now removed from the Play Store) were created by Peter Molyneux and his team of developers at 22Cans.
The Cartoon Network Humble Bundle still has a week left before it expires, and today there are three more games to tempt you. That brings the total to 14 games, making it one hell of a good deal. It gets better—we've got 10 free bundle codes to give away.
A week has passed since the Humble Mobile Bundle 10 made its presence known, and if you've been snatching up these pay-what-you-want deals for a while now, then you know what this means. That's right, more games. In addition to the six previously revealed titles, we also see the likes of iPollute, Sorcery, and The Tiny Bang Story.
iPollute is a puzzle game made distinctive by its stop motion clay animation.
The Tiny Bang Story is an adorable point-and-click adventure title with hand-drawn graphics in which you explore a steampunk world that has been devastated by an asteroid.
The original Sorcery joins Sorcery 2, which was among the six games already included in the bundle.
Ever since the death of Google Reader (RIP, old friend), I've been using Feedly for all of my RSS/news aggregation needs. It started off as a viable alternative to Reader, and did an excellent job of mending the pieces of my broken heart during that transitional phase in my life. Honestly, Feedly was there for me when I needed it most. Thanks for being a great friend, Feedly.
Since then, I've watched Feedly grow into something more powerful than Reader ever was. You can basically run it anywhere – in the browser, on Android, on iOS...wherever. Powerful new features consistently make their way to the platform, and the overall experience just keeps getting better and better.

No, it's not a free phone, but sometimes knowledge (and a good time, to boot) can be a lot more valuable than stuff: today we're giving away two passes to Droidcon London, Europe's largest Android developer conference.
The Humble Sega Mobile Bundle kicked things off last week with a collection of six games the publisher has released into the Play Store over the years. For any price, buyers could get ChuChu Rocket, Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode 1, and Virtua Tennis Challenge. Those who beat the average were rewarded with Crazy Taxi, Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing, and Episode 2 of Sonic 4. Now, right on schedule, three additional apps have made their way into the bundle. Two are, as you would expect, games: Sonic CD and Super Monkey Ball 2 Sakura Edition. The third happens to be a live wallpaper.
