Today, a collection of free children’s books online. Also, what happens when you lend someone your phone and they break it? You can get free books and WiFi on the NY subway and the FCC decides not to appeal the municipal broadband ruling.
Daily Links for Tuesday, August 30, 2016:
The etiquette of breaking someone’s phone, and having your phone broken (The Next Web) Food for thought here. How do you deal with this?
Enter an Archive of 6,000 Historical Children’s Books, All Digitized and Free to Read Online (Open Culture) Many of the free books we find are not appropriate for children. Most of these are read online, not downloadable.
New York subway is offering free ebooks (and Wi-Fi) for your commute (Tech Crunch) I say “meh.” While the short reads might be nice, extended excerpts are just samples under another name.
FCC admits defeat in municipal broadband, won’t appeal court loss (Ars Technica) It is over for now, although the FCC is not ruling out other options. This is disappointing.

(A note on Daily Deals: All prices current at the time of posting and subject to change. Most items marked Daily Deals are good for only the day posted.
Many large promotions have discount pricing that is set by the publisher. This usually means that titles can be found at a discount price across most platforms (with iTunes sometimes being the exception). If you have a favorite retailer you like to patronize, check the title on that website. There is a good chance that they will be matching the sale price.)
