It also disclosed that Swartz, who committed suicide last week, was "in communication" with founder Julian Assange during 2010 and 2011.
Wikileaks, which exposes classified information provided by anonymous sources, said it decided to reveal these details in light of the U.S. Secret Service's involvement in Swartz's case. At the time of his death, Swartz was awaiting trial for allegedly harvesting millions of scholarly articles over the Massachusetts Institute of Technology's network. He was charged with computer fraud and other cri…

But Samsung has made it worth waiting for with the addition of Premium Suite, which the company says includes "dramatic improvements" to the tablet's multitasking features, as well as improvement to the S Pen stylus included with each device.
On the multitasking side, Samsung has now added several features that leverage the Galaxy Note 10.1's Multi Window view that lets you run two apps side-by-side.
The new Cascade View feature lets users freely resize, move and pin selected applications in…

Downloaded will have its world premiere on March 10 at the Texas festival, according to VH1, which financed the film.

The Radius is a minimalist covering that highlights the iPhone 5's design: "precise, simple and beautiful," according to its creators.
Designed to look like an "X," the case's frame is made entirely out of lightweight aluminum, and comes in either slate or silver. Its four "modules," which attach to the iPhone's four corners, are available in polished aluminum, red, cyan and slate.
The Radius' Kickstarter campaign ended Saturday, and raised around $56,000 -- more than double its original funding goal of $25,000.
Would you use this case for your iPhone 5? Tell…

Hoping to create an AIDS-free generation and raise awareness of HIV/AIDS, a new social-media campaign is displaying tweets on a Times Square billboard and in an interactive art installation in midtown Manhattan.
When you tweet with the hashtag #ArchesofHope, your tweet will be part of an LED ticker tape (in the image above) in the installation and will be beamed onto jumbo screens in Times Square. The campaign is a joint effort between Lifebeat and the MTV Staying Alive Foundation.
"This is where we're at, it's all about social media. We're trying to promote safe sex and getting tests since that's not being talked about in the schools or the church or probably for some at home," said…

It was CES 2013 "hangover week" in the tech world this week. With the gadgets bonanza in the rear-view mirror, the top tech news stories were understandably lacking some gizmos. But fear not -- the world of tech was still filled with exciting news.
The biggest announcement of the week was probably that Google Glass will finally be available for developers this very month, with two events planned in San Francisco and New York. So we'll soon know more about Google's secretive and futuristic project. The search giant also has new ideas regarding computer security. Or, more precisely, on how to replace passwords.

A former landscape company owner created NastyClient.com, a rating and review website that lets businesses file reports against its customers. Turning the tables on consumers, creator Matt Stachel allows owners to tell their side of the story.
Sites such as Yelp or Angie's List give an open forum for consumers to rave or rant about their experiences, but platforms for business owners aren't as accessible.
After dealing with his fair share of nasty clients for more than 20 years, Stachel started the site two years ago.
"It wasn't necessarily one person or one story,…

Is this what an assassination looks like? If this assailant's gun had fired, yes. But Bulgarian politician Ahmed Dogan was unhurt after an as-yet-unnamed assailant rushed the stage and attempted to shoot him with a small handgun.
Dogan is the leader of Bulgaria's opposition movement for Rights and Freedoms. As he addressed that group's congress on Saturday, an attacker attempted to shoot him but the gun reportedly "misfired," according to the Sofia, Bulgaria news agency.
The agency said Bulgaria's Socialist party (one of several parties in opposition to the Movement for Rights and Freedoms in Bulgaria) issued a statement condemning the assassination attempt. "What happened cannot b…

Boeing chose to use the most combustible of the standard lithium-ion chemistries on the market in its flagship 787 Dreamliner. The advanced aircraft is grounded around the world after a battery burst into flames.
The suspension of all 50 working Dreamliners follows a Jan. 16 emergency landing by an All Nippon Airways pilot after he smelled something burning, and saw a cockpit warning light up indicating a battery problem. It turned out that one of the plane's batteries had caught fire. Investigators are working to determine why -- faulty wiring, design, system assembly, or the battery itself.
In the photo above, a leaking battery is carried out of an All Nippon Airways (ANA) Boeing 787…

On March 4, 1913, Woodrow Wilson took the oath of office. Nearly 100 years later, Barack Obama will take that same oath.
The U.S. presidential inauguration looks a tad different than it did a century ago. In 1913, women still did not have the right to vote and Wilson rode to the Capitol in a horse-drawn carriage. And don't expect to see President Obama wearing a silk top hat like Wilson either.
Thanks to the digital archiving of government images, zipping through 100 years of presidential history doesn't even require a trip to the library. We've compiled the most memorable photographs and videos taken at pres…

The robot is called Grace, an acronym for Gliding Robot ACE and it's equipped with sensors to gather data and measure water's temperature and quality. Grace is able to autonomously swim both by flapping its tail as well as gliding through the water. This combination lets it travel long distances.
"Swimming requires constant flapping of the tail, which means the battery is constantly being discharged and typically wouldn't last more than a few hours," said Xiaobo Tan, the project's leading researcher. "This is w…
