We’ll give your inbox a break tomorrow and be back Friday with an easily digested edition before the weekend. Enjoy!
PS. The DGiT Daily podcast will continue with a special edition across Thursday and Friday. I think mainly because Adam will be, in his words, “mud wrestling for cheap TV’s alongside everyone else.” Godspeed.
Early rumors from Korea media have been given an edge of truth, with the WSJ pointing at least one model variant of Samsung’s next big Galaxy S phone being a monster:

It’s been a mystery: how does the Australian wombat poop cubes? Or, as you might well ask, how do you poop out a square?
It turns out that figuring this elasticity to shape a cube might even change manufacturing:
I asked my ecologist/biologist sister about this for an expert comment and she said:
