    Better late than never they say? But is there a point at which you can be too late? Sony seems to be testing that very belief. Sitting here and gazing into the 2010 calendar -- almost three years after the original iPhone -- Sony is just now getting into the mobile phone biz. I say just getting into because frankly, let's be honest -- SonyEricsson sucks. Their phones suck. That's why no one has gotten excited in them for years. The one recent glimmer of hope was the Xperia X10, but that w...

    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...
  • Will the Nook ever be released?

    One of the best ways to kill a product is to riddle the launch with delays, misinformation, and overall insanity and frustration. Barnes & Noble seems to be doing a might fine job with that as we speak. The Nook and it's followers have been on a roller coaster ride for the past several weeks. Delay after delay has pushed the devices launch date closer and closer towards Christmas to the point that B&N; is saying we shouldn't expect Nooks to ship before Christmas. Hmm, somehow the people that ...
  • Amazon loves the fine print…and screwing their customers of course

    The Amazon Kindle is one of if not the most popular eBook reader around. The iPhone/iPod Touch I would half hazzardly guess aren't too far behind with the recent addition of an Amazon eBook reader app for said devices. One of the great features of digital books is that you can more or less transfer your books between devices, delete/redownload when storage is low, and generally enjoy freedom. However, according to Amazon and some rather unintelligent policies by Amazon themselves, their eBo...
  • Amazon Kindle 2 Leaked? (Rumor)

    People who love words and trees were I'm sure ecstatic when ebooks first came to the technology scene.  The Amazon Kindle has been regarded as one of the best ebook readers for the money.  Not a bad accomplishment by any means.  But all good things do come to an end and the original Kindle was growing a bit long in the tooth.  However pictures of a supposed Kindle 2 have surfaced and have been quickly circulating around the corners of the web.  It's supposedly going to be announced/l...
