Barnes & Nobles Drops Nook Application for Windows 8

 

Microsoft's digital book pact with Barnes & Noble is already bearing fruit.

A little more than a month after the two companies officially formed a partnership geared toward digital reading, Nook apps for Windows 8 and Windows RT have arrived at the Windows Store. B&N CEO William promised last month that a Windows 8 app was "imminent," but it was not available at the time of the new operating system's launch last month.

As part of the two companies' pact, Microsoft agreed to invest $300 million for a 17.6 percent stake in a new Barnes & Noble subsidiary that would focus on B&N's Nook digital and college businesses. In exchange, Barnes & Noble agreed to load its Nook digital bookstore with Windows 8, the software giant's next-generation operating system that launched at the end of October.

McAfee:Anti-Virus Creator Wanted For Murder

 

According to Gizmodo.com, Belize police claim John McAfee is the prime suspect in the shooting death of an American expatriate named Gregory Faull.

Faull was reportedly gunned down at his home in San Pedro Town on the island of Ambergris Caye on Saturday -- after an argument with McAfee had turned deadly.

McAfee -- whose software company sold to Intel in 2010 for $7 billion -- has been living in Belize for a while now.

Details around the alleged argument between McAfee and Faull are unclear, but police claim Faull had filed a formal complaint about McAfee with the local mayor's office recently, claiming McAfee had been firing off guns and exhibiting "roguish behavior."

Gizmodo has published a statement from the San Pedro police, which says Faull was found lying face up "in a pool of blood." Police have not established a motive.

According to Gizmodo's report, police claim McAfee is currently "on the run from murder charges."

Lisa Turner: Eat to Live

 

The Art of Healthy Eating

We’d like to think eating healthy is entirely a science, full of absolutes and hard-and-fast rules. That’s just not the case; every body is individual, and even the “experts” disagree on what’s good, what’s bad, and what’s downright tragic. There’s enormous value in the science of nutrition, and how food works in the body. And, at some point, healthy eating becomes an art, a balance between science, personal experience and intuition.

Second Woman Comes Forward In Petraeus Case

As questions swirl about the extramarital affair that led to the resignation of CIA Director David Petraeus, the retired general and his biographer, Paula Broadwell, have been quiet about details of their relationship. However, information has emerged about the woman who received the emails from Broadwell that led to the FBI's discovery of Petraeus' indiscretion.

A senior U.S. military official identified the second woman as Jill Kelley, 37, who lives in Tampa, Fla., and serves as an unpaid social liaison to MacDill Air Force Base in Tampa, where the military's Central Command and Special Operations Command are located.

Alleged Kennebunk prostitute posed naked with son

 

Benjamin Hopkins, the father of Alexis Wright's son, said in court documents that the former Kennebunk Zumba instructor charged with dozens of counts of prostitution had posed naked with their child in "inappropriate pictures."

Neither Wright nor Hopkins appeared for a hearing on the claim Wednesday and a York District Court judge dismissed the matter. The dismissal apparently was expected because Wright never received a summons to appear.

Hopkins filed the complaint late last month in seeking a civil protection order for their 7-year-old son and full custody. The boy currently lives with Wright.

Hopkins claimed in court papers that the child was living in an "extremely dangerous situation" with Wright. He cited the attention the case has gotten and the fact that Wright's address in Wells has been made public. The Press Herald obtained the court documents Wednesday.

U.S. Jews Concerned About Ties With Israel

 

Chicago - On Election Day, Obama volunteers here made last-minute calls to the swing states. Most of them them were so confident in Obama's victory it was unclear why they even bothered to spend hours talking to strangers, some of whom were outright rude. Frank Diaz, a former banker volunteering at the location on South Wabash street, with cardboard figures of the President and the First Lady at the entrance, spent three weeks, five hours each day, making these calls, although he had "no doubt, not for a second" Obama would remain in the White House.

"I just wanted to make sure I did everything I could to help," he said. Diaz says he never met Obama in person, but has been following his career for years.

Baketball to Still The Mind

Election Day is what it’s all about if you’re a politician running for office. It’s a stressful day, to say the very least, and there are plenty of things to keep an eye on over the course of the day, from exit polls to projections throughout the night. President Barack Obama, no stranger to the stresses of Election Day, has his own way of quelling any anxiety there may be. He does what he loves to do — play basketball. Multiple politics reporters tweeted Tuesday afternoon that the president was indeed playing pick-up basketball, and the Commander in Chief had a special guest for his Election Day run. Former Chicago Bulls star Scottie Pippen was one of those lucky enough to play in the game. Former Illinois treasurer Alexi Giannoulias also played, and he tweeted that he was on the same team as Obama and Pippen. So there’s that
