Kindle Goes International, Launches in Over 100 Countries

I’ve yet to jump on the Kindle bandwagon, mostly because I can’t afford it. But I’m not one of those naysayers, really. Granted, if I ever do get my hands on an e-reader I’m not going to pack up my books and give them away; I actually collect old books, and would never think to […]

Cruley, who won the prize for the coolest (and tidiest!) setup, and to Chance Gearhart, who won the messiest one (although this could be […]

Yes, You Can Have Your Mac and PC, too

iPod Nano with radio integration: too little too late?

I will confess, I haven’t thought about the radio much in the last few years. The only station I listen to in my car is an all-Classical station that doesn’t play commercials.
