The new black(berry) — All those Hill folks still toting around clunky BlackBerrys whilst quashing iPhone envy will want to read about BlackBerry10, the revamped operating system for the devices that will debut next year. Joshua Topolsky has the early look: more virtual keyboards, better camera, etc.

Radio days — The fantastic yarn behind a longtime National Archives official who’s in court for stealing nearly 1,000 sound and radio recordings from his employer is worth a read. Tune in for a tale by our colleagues Del Quentin Wilber and Lisa Rein involving an obsessive collector, computer sleuthwork, and a duplicitous archivist.

He was that guy — Looking for salaciousness in the early romances of President Obama? Turns out, he was more about quoting T.S. Eliot, staying emotionally distant, and whipping up gourmet meals, report our colleagues at the Reliable Source.
