iWoz: Computer Geek to Cult Icon: How I Invented the Personal Computer, Co-Founded Apple, and Had Fun Doing It

The mastermind behind Apple sheds his low profile and steps forward to tell his story for the first time.

Before cell phones that fit in the palm of your hand and slim laptops that fit snugly into briefcases, computers were like strange, alien vending machines. They had cryptic switches, punch cards and pages of encoded output. But in 1975, a young engineering wizard named Steve Wozniak had an idea: What if you combined computer circuitry with a regular typewriter keyboard and a video screen? The result was the first true personal computer, the Apple I, a widely affordable machine that anyone could understand and figure out how to use…

Know Your Power: A Message to America's Daughters

“Never losing faith, we waited through the many years of struggle to achieve our rights. But women weren't just waiting; women were working.

Republicans' MS Paint Skills seen on Pelosi's Amazon page

I think John McCain's interns have finally learned to use MS Paint. They've began posting a bunch of great new images to Speaker Pelosi's book page. One features her on a communist flag, one is subtitled "Does she want our American daughters to wear Muslim head garb?"

Dream Catcher, Failure Was Never An Option (na)

In the years leading up to the 1950’s there were no resources for the challenged. They were placed in asylums or back rooms and left to die. They were never talked about or acknowledged. They were the silent children. The ones no one wanted. The ,ones who never given a chance to live. Florida Author Yvonne Mason has given us a story of success in a time of failure for the challenged. She has given a voice to a child born in 1952 who became challenged. This young man was not put away. He was not shunned and he was not ignored. In her book Dream Catcher, Ms. Mason tells of Stan who was never supposed to succeed. He was supposed to fail…

The Game: Penetrating the Secret Society of Pickup Artists

Hidden somewhere, in nearly every major city in the world, is an underground seduction lair. And in these lairs, men trade the most devastatingly effective techniques ever invented to charm women. This is not fiction. These men really exist. They live together in houses known as Projects. And Neil Strauss, the bestselling author, spent two years living among them, using the pseudonym Style to protect his real-life identity. The result is one of the most explosive and controversial books of the year -- guaranteed to change the lives of men and transform the way women understand the opposite sex forever…

No rules. No techniques. Only "technology" ... for picking up women.

Neil Strauss (famous for writing books with Jenna Jameson and Dave Navarro) has a new book out on the subject of pickup artists and picking up on women. The guys in the book describe their act as "technology" - they have flowcharts and diagrams and stuff like that. Very amusing ...

The Great American Novel

I took the time to write a whole book, and where do you start? The back cover. Are we living in Israel? That's not the way people read.It's okay. We knew you'd do that, and the debate we had on what to put back here was arduous. Reviews? You need a pretentious review? Fine."Keith Malley stands out as a new, fresh, leading author with honest talk and a smart style. Seriously: Arduous? Brilliant!"-your favorite newspaper/magazine/television celebrity.We thought about a picture for the back. A nice snowman. Who doesn't like snowmen? Maybe a black snowman. It grabs your attention. Then we heard how much more we'd have to pay the artist for a back cover…

A Schizophrenic Will: A Story of Madness, A Story of Hope

This autobiography tells the amazing transformational story of a mind which was like a hopelessly cracked mirror made to reflect truly once again-- a descent into insanity and back to health. It is knee-slappingly humorous in places, gravely serious and sad in others. I feel that my story is primarily a story of hope, recovery, and resilience that needs to be told to the world…

I Was Born Dead: A Memoir

Now that it is free and democratic, David Rehak has since returned as an adult to the country of his birth, and has written an autobiographical memoir about his childhood immigrant experiences growing up in Canada and presently living back in what is now known as the Czech Republic. This intimate and sometimes fanciful account titled "I Was Born Dead: a memoir" is full of insight, humor, and even tragedy.

The story begins, literally, at the beginning of his life: the baby delivery. In Rehak's case, it didn't go too well and it appears the doctors had to resuscitate the newborn…

Sex

Hi, my name is Ysabel Sex. I am 19 years old. I am 5 feet 9 inches tall, and my weight is 114 pounds. People say that I am good looking, and my brown eyes attract men. I grew up in New Hope, it is a small city in Alabama. I think I am a very idle person; I often oversleep and am late for work. Five times in a week I am working at New Hope's local bar. The job is quite boring and sometimes it really frets. But I am also an active person; I like to meet new men and have some new experiences. You know, it keeps me going. So, I have decided to share my own sexual experience with all the world. It is so exciting for me! You'll be amazed, shocked and excited as was I…
