E-readers are nothing new, but Sony stepped it up today with the introduction of the touchscreen PRS-700. Sporting similar dimensions and svelteness of the original Sony e-reader, the PRS-700′s 6-inch screen allows readers to intuitively flip through a book, magazine or newspaper by sliding their finger across the screen.  Happen across an interesting article?  No problem, just call up the virtual keyboard or use the stylus to jot a note.  They’ve also tossed in a bed partner friendly LED reading light for night time witch stories.  Total memory has been bumped allowing for up to 350 e-books, which is further expandable via SD or Memory Stick duo cards.

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
