Kindle love

  Ah, Kindle love…I’m so glad I went back to a Kindle keyboard model. I’ve been tearing through books since I got it. It’s just so light and perfectly proportioned in the hand. I didn’t take to the on-screen tapping required when using the Kindle Paperwhite and much prefer physical buttons. It sounds silly, but the ...

Going old school

People who know me associate me with gadgets and the frequent updating thereof. This usually takes the form of moving to new and more advanced versions of each piece of tech as they are released, so I can take advantage of each new aspect of functionality. Tech launches somehow (sadly) make me feel like I can’t live ...

Premature excitement?

So my heart was all aflutter at the thought of getting my grubby little mitts on on Kindle Matchbook. Yet this morning, Amazon emailed me to let me know about the new Kindle Paperwhite (really not sure it's worth my while upgrading) but there was a noticeable lack of mentions of Kindle Matchbook or indeed ...

True to form, I'll be on a flight home from Edinburgh when Tim ...

The fact that I like to read multiple books simultaneously makes an ereader ideal. Easier than hoofing around a ...

Covering the Kindle

So this blog seems to be all about the Kindle right now. A passing phase, I'm sure. Who knows - next week it could be Power Rangers or flip-flops. But for now, the continuing saga of my Kindle Paperwhite. I realised yesterday, after carting it around in my work bag that I needed a cover. ...

I bit the bullet

On my way home from "the office" (not a regular location, more a state of mind) yesterday evening, I somehow found myself in Waterstones in Canary Wharf, just before closing time. 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 ...
