Purism Aims To Build A Philosophically Pure Laptop — Purism Librem 15 is a laptop that is not free as in beer but it is instead free as in "absolutely free and open and uncontrolled by outside forces ensures complete control of every aspect of the hardware at all times." And that's a good thing.

Kredo Helps You Make Your Portfolio Fancy — You may be fancy and everybody already knows this, but does your portfolio reflect that? Kredo, a new portfolio app, will help you and those around you find out just how fancy you are. Created by Lukas Dryja and Tyler Rooney, Kredo was built after the pair realized their artist friends had no online portfolios.

iSwapp Is A Clean, Well-Lighted Place For Swapping Your Unwanted Stuff — Craigslist, ever extant, still lumbers like some forgotten Jurassic leviathan in the fading light of classified ads. But what's that rustling in the hedge? Why it's iSwapp, a clever solution to person-to-person commerce that encourages buyers and sellers to meet at a neutral location as soon as the whim hits.

This Week On The TechCrunch Bitcoin Podcast: Coinbase Raises $75M — Welcome back to TCBTC, TechCrunch's weekly podcast on the cryptocurrency bitcoin. Bitcoin managed to pull out of a price tailspin this week, edging back north of the key $200 price point. Also, Coinbase, a popular bitcoin startup, raised a massive $75 million round of funding.

Researchers Create A Teleportation Machine — While you probably don't want this latest project from the Hasso Plattner Institute to "beam you up" just yet, researchers have created a teleportation machine in that the object you are "sending" is destroyed and then reassembled on a 3D printer.

Fly Or Die: The Jamstik+ — We're back after a long break and I bet you missed our mugs on TC's Fly or Die. This week we present the Jamstik+, a surprisingly cool little musical instrument that immediately got Jordan a-humming and a-strumming. You can take a closer look at the Jamstik+ here but, generally, you're looking at a mini-guitar that is actually a MIDI keyboard.

The Digital Chord Chart Is A DIY Way To Learn The Guitar — It is my understanding, and correct me if I'm off base here, that you're into piña coladas and getting caught in the rain. Furthermore, you're not into yoga and, I suspect this is unrelated but let's not quibble, you have half a brain.

The New Jamstik+ Is A Musician’s Best Friend — As a wannabe guitarist, I find that the hardest thing to do is sit down and actually play guitar. When I first saw the Jamstik, a six-fret mini electronic guitar, I was impressed. It was about as big as a sub bun and featured strings that never had to be tuned.
