Kindle-tastic

After months of deliberating, I bit the bullet over the weekend and bought myself the new Kindle Voyage from Amazon. I'd been looking at it online since it was made available in the UK, even putting in my "basket" on more than one occasion. But then noticing it had basically sold out and there was ...

New Kindle Voyage announced

Very interested to read about Amazon's new Kindle models, especially the Kindle Voyage. I actually previously 'downgraded' from a Kindle Paperwhite as I missed the physical buttons and couldn't get used to tapping the screen to turn pages. I bought an older model Kindle 3G Keyboard on eBay and haven't looked back! But this new ...

Now that’s exciting!

Yes, yes...Apple have finally confirmed they're having a special event next Tuesday. I could have told you that - for the past few years, they've managed to schedule these for when I'm out of range of the interwebs, usually on a plane. True to form, I'll be on a flight home from Edinburgh when Tim ...

No idea how that happened. Anyhoo... As predicted, I went and bought myself a new Kindle Paperwhite. After some internal to-ing and fro-ing, I ...

Eek…gadget lust

So after committing to not buying a new Kindle, I just walked through my local Waterstones and fondled the Kindle Paperwhite. Fondled it lovingly and for several minutes. In a most unsavoury manner. This does not bode well. Engaging in a very subjective cost/benefits analysis, it has the following going for it: It's small and ...

The case for Kindle

Quick question: what's the last thing you look at before turning the lights off at night? If you're like me (or may of my friends), it's probably either a tablet or a smartphone. Before this blog was decimated by a meltdown of epic proportions, I used to blog quite enthusiastically about my Kindle. And then ...

eBooks on the iPad

Reading ebooks was one of the main reasons I bought my iPad. I know I'm probably in a minority of iPad owners in that I use it as an ereader for over 50% of the time. I've had a series of Sony ereaders in the past and enjoyed them - for the one-trick ponies they ...
