txtr Beagle lays claim to smallest e-reader in the world title

I am not quite sure about you, but reading on an e-book reader is a difference that is quite like that of an actual book, and yet not quite there. Good thing most of the decent e-book readers released in the past came in respectable sizes for the hands and eyes, but the txtr Beagle from Germany might not be too comfortable for some of us, especially when we are […]

Bookeen delivers the Cybook Odyssey

Apparently, a couple of years of […]


AmazonLocal coming to Kindle with Special Offers

As if getting a Kindle at a reduced price wasn’t good enough with Amazon’s Kindle with Special Offers, customers of the eBook reader are in for another treat. Amazon has just announced that customers will soon start receiving special offers from AmazonLocal on their Kindle screensavers when they aren’t reading (I don’t believe Amazon would make deals pop up while you were reading anyway – that would be annoying). AmazonLocal […]

Ever used a tablet while you’re underwater in the middle of an ocean? Can’t say I have, but some folks do it on a daily basis especially professional divers like Mark Thurlow and Robin Jacoway. Since they go down to depths of 300-400 ft, they can’t immediately exit the water when they’re done collecting marine life samples – they need to spend time surfacing so that they aren’t affected by […]
