Daily Tech Roundup: Lehman’s Emails, The Lost Apple Creator And Twaiku

Writing “do not share this,” isn’t enough to make an email confidential. Lehman Brothers employees were fond us using phrases like “big trouble” and “just between us” in their emails, which made it all the easier for an investigator to search through lots of emails and find the juicy ones.

Close calls with crazy success are painful to hear about. Pete Best missed out on international stardom when The Beatles replaced him with Ringo Starr. But a less-known man, the “lost” Apple founder, missed out on fame and fortune not because of a firing, but because he left Apple voluntarily.

Meet twaiku, a form of poetry that makes 140 characters seem downright roomy.
