    Fancy a good book? I used to be a big reader. I don't know what happened really. I just drifted away from the written word. If I had to put my finger on any one reason I stopped reading, I'd have to say patience. Whether or not my gadget/electronic/fast paced fascination has anything to do with me not enjoying a slower paced activity (such as reading) anymore, I may never know. For those of you who still consider yourself bookworms, this week is an exciting time. The Barnes & Noble Nook...
  • Rupert Murdoch still thinks NewsCorp is the only one reporting the news. Continues to miss the point of the internet…

    We've talked about good 'ol (way over the hill) Rupert Murdoch. In a more general light, I'll commend Mr. Murdoch as he has built up a media giant. At the same time, it is an extremely backwards looking and technologically retarded giant. It's no secret to anyone in the tech world, this man hates the very mention of the word "free". To him, everything should come with a price, paywalls erected everywhere, and the free flowing internet turned into a locked down shell of what it once was. Tha...
  • Apple continues f’ing over the App Store. Demands removal of ebook app over USB transfers.

    Ok, big deal. A few ebook readers no longer have the ability to transfer ebooks over USB. You may be thinking why this is of such utter importance to earn a spot on the front page of Gadgetsteria. Continue on... If you take it at face value, the instant reasoning probably gravitates you towards piracy. But such reasoning is an extremely poor choice and full of holes. The app in question is Stanza, a popular ebook app for the iPhone and iPod Touch. Until the recent 2.1 update, users...

    While we touched pretty heavily on why the iPad is pretty underwhelming, I just stumbled on another tidbit of information and decided it was worth it's own post. One of the iPad's biggest software companions yesterday besides the re-worked iWorks iPad Suite was that of the iBooks Store. If you don't know yet, the iBooks Store is Apple's online book store which is set to go head to head with offerings from Amazon, Barnes & Noble, etc. It's a staple feature of the iPad. And on launch day, ...

    For now, hop on aboard the rumor train and get ready for a ride. A ride full of iriver rumors of juicy gadgets to get you salivating. The electronics company who was once known for amazing mp3 players such as the iHP-120 has of late focused more on the lower capacity/end of the market with players that haven't really wowed us. However, according to rumors from the Australian urban jungle say iriver is about to sing a different tune. A tune that includes an Android based PMP and a new e-rea...
  • Have an eBook? Miss the smell of slaughtered, chopped up, and tattooed paper?

    If you can look at the title and honestly answer yes and yes, you may first want to go get your head checked out. Fresh out of a head scan, pick yourself up a nice can of unique scents cleverly though unoriginally dubbed "Smell of Books" that you can conveniently apply to your beloved eBook. First off, if you're worried about liquids or other less than safe materials/states of matter getting on your eBook, you can relax and take a brief minute to give the compatibility list a looksie to see ...
  • Wireless document delivery on Kindle set to cost you more. [Super]

    Posted April 30th, 2009 at 6:41 am
    If you are an avid Amazon Kindle user and routinely transfer large documents wirelessly to and fro using Whispernet, you are in for a rude awakening - to the tune of a minimum 50% increase in wireless transfer charges. [Gasps] Say it ain't so. Sorry, but it is very so. The old $0.10 flat fee that covered everything from a single byte transfer to that monstrous 400MB transfer will now be billed according to total size. What is the new cost that you find Kindle readers now get to foot? $...
