Humble Mobile Bundle 9 gets two new games for the big donors

humble_mobile_bundle_9

The ninth edition of the Humble Mobile Bundle launched just over one week ago. It included at the time Syberia, Neuroshima Hex, Bardbarian: Golden Axe Edition, Leo’s Fortune, Out there, and First Strike. The final three mentioned were given only to donors exceeding the average. Now, two additional games are up for those donors. For exceeding the current (and rapidly changing) $3.38 donation amount, you get So Long, Oregon! and Mountain.

This is definitely one of the best Humble Mobile Bundle’s ever launched. The games, especially Leo’s Fortune, are of very high quality. So if you are feeling extra charitable today, go right ahead and get giving!

humble_mobile_bundle_5_extra_games

Last week Humble Bundle announced the Humble Mobile Bundle 5 which included up to six titles. As they typically do, additional titles are being added to the bundle. Today three more games showed up on the order page for the bundle, Paper Monsters, R-Type and Enviro-Bear 2010. Those titles currently list for $0.99, $1.99 and $1.99 respectively in the Google Play store. These three titles and three of the original titles, The Cave, The Room Two and Carcassonne are only available if you pay more than the average price, which is $5.18 as this is being written. That price has a good chance of going up, so head on over to the Humble Bundle site using the source link to place your order.

Google launches “Giving Through Glass” to increase transparency in nonprofits

Glass Giving

Ever donated to a charity and wondered where the money was actually going? Was it actually going to help save someone’s life? Was it actually going to help educate poverty-stricken children?

We now have a new use for Google Glass: helping to add transparency to philanthropic organizations— allow the donors to see where their money is actually going.

Starting today, according to Google, five nonprofits will start using Glass to document their efforts and experiment with the device to see how it can help solve real-world problems.

Hopefully, this will “help close the gap between donors and the people they support.” Google “Giving Through Glass” has just begun, and it’ll be exciting to see where Glass takes it.
