The LG Nexus G have been tipped for a reveal later this month, and it looks as if issues of component yields might mean that we’re headed for iPad Mini shortages (assuming the rumored tablet actually exists, without a doubt ). The Kindle Paperwhite has officially been jailbroken, and Rovio was spotted teasing a brand new Star Wars-Angry Birds tie-in earlier today, leaving us to wonder what’s within the pipeline. Sprint could be trying to rain on T-Mobile’s MetroPCS parade, and Anonymous is at it again, this time bringing down government sites in Sweden within the name of The Pirate Bay and Wikileaks founder Julian Assange.
Wii U pre-orders are hard to locate nowadays, but provided you have got the money to burn, you’ll be able to pick one up on eBay. iPhone cases were shooting up left and right today, like this Loop Mummy case for the iPhone 4/4S and these Moshi cases for the iPhone 5. Xi3 has gone to Kickstarter to fund its new X3A and X7A modular computers, and one analyst is saying that HP’s stock must be worth negative $2. Ubisoft gave us a brand spanking new ZombiU development diary, and we heard that increased iPhone 5 quality demands brought about a strike at a Foxconn factory in China today.
New algorithms may eventually result in cellphones that charge twice as fast, while NASA explained why Curiosity is collecting dirt from the outside of Mars.

Pokemon Black and White 2 launch within the US this Sunday (are you prepared to be the most effective?) and we came upon today that New Zealand authorities can have been spying on Kim Dotcom much prior to they’ve admitted.
Finally tonight, we have got a whole lot of original articles to share with you.
