Shades of Minority Report, anyone? Singularity Hub reports on the use of supercomputers to mine millions of news reports in order to more accurately predict political instability. It can't quite read the future, yet, technically speaking.


According to Droid Life, Verizon is getting ready to release an onslaught of Android phones in the next few weeks. Tthe Droid X2, expected to pack a dual-core Tegra 2 chip, and the LG Revolution, a 4G LTE Android phone that's supposed to be the first Android phone with Netflix, are both expected to release on May 12th (next Thursday).


Tech-centric human rights group Access has published a handy primer for those looking to participate in a Middle Eastern or North African revolution (and keep their identities private while at it). You know - those secret police are arseholes.
