Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader: "I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."

  1. Something wrong with the link to Go to Hellman

  2. DOJ To Court: Hey, Can We Postpone Tomorrow’s Hearing? We Know We’re Going To Lose, So We’re Going To Try Undermining The Public’s Confidence In Apple’s Security By Claiming To Have Found Another Way In

    • One report I saw said they *always* had a way in and that the whole effort was really an exercise to get the court to give them what Congress won’t. They did not expect the entire tech industry and Congress to jump in and the move backfired so they’re trying to disengage.

  3. The FBI concluded they were going to lose, so they’re not even going to waste their time or set a precedent they don’t like. This really makes them look foolish.
